How To Choose The Best Anti Aging Creams

If you are looking for the best anti aging creams, first you will need to consider your skin type.

Unfortunately, there is not one single magic formula for everyone. Since we all have vastly different skin, the best anti aging creams are the ones designed for a particular skin type.

This is because anti aging skin care products work differently on different skin types. A product that your friend recommends is not necessarily the best for you, and in fact may make matters worse.

Now, the more logical question becomes “What is the best anti aging cream for my skin type?”. The answer to that requires more time and research.

To save you time, here is a brief guideline to the best anti aging creams according to skin type.

The following skin types are separated into four categories, since most people can place themselves in one of the following classes of skin type

Dry Skin

For Daytime:

The best anti aging creams for dry skin should be oil-based, contain hyaluronic acid and preferably a sun screen. Hyaluronic acid binds moisture to the skin, thereby preventing moisture loss while exposed to daytime drying elements such as wind and sun.


For Night Time:

Dry skin benefits greatly from a moisturizer that is oil-based. Also, try to incorporate more essential fatty acids in your diet. These can be obtained by taking flaxseed

or fish oil supplements.

Suggested Product Lines: Shiseido, Dr. Perricone, Skin Eternal.

Most anti aging products today contain some amount of hyaluronic acid, just make sure the cream you choose is providing enough.

Oily Skin

At the risk of sounding obvious, if you have oily skin the last thing you need to put on your face is more oil. Therefore, any anti aging cream used on oily skin should be either water-based or oil-free. A common problem that accompanies oily skin is large pores. This can be treated using glycolic acid or AHA since they work to exfoliate the skin while refining the pores.

For Daytime:

A water-based moisturizer with oil-regulating properties such as tea tree oil, camphor or geranium.

For Night Time:

You can safely use any daytime anti-aging moisturizer at night.

Suggested Product Lines: Kinerase, Mary Kay.

Normal Skin

Since normal skin types are balanced, you can use most gently moisturized anti aging creams. There is no need to use the extreme qualities which apply to over oily or over dry skin.

For Daytime: Simple and basic anti-aging moisturizing lotion. Try to find one with a sun screen included.


For Night Time: Light anti-aging skin cream, preferably with nourishing qualities.

Suggested Product Lines: Kinerase, Mary Kay.

Sensitive Skin

There are many anti aging products now which take into consideration those with sensitive skin. These products are normally labelled as hypoallergenic or fragrance-free. Keep in mind that using a sun screen may not be part of the sensitive skin regime, so remember to be aware of sun exposure and take the appropriate alternative measures to sun screen, such as wearing a sun hat or carrying a parasol for shade.

For Daytime:

See above for skin types, but look out for alternative versions for sensitive skin which may include camomile or aloe vera to soothe the skin.

For Night Time:

See the night time suggestions for your skin type but again, look for the variation of soothing ingredients for sensitive skin.

Suggested Product Lines: Philosophy, MD Formulations.

If you keep in mind that the best anti aging creams are suited to your individual skin type, you should be able to see the results you are looking for. Nevertheless, regardless of skin type, there are some universal rules which apply to all skin types. You have probably heard this before but these basic guidelines bear repeating. Drink plenty of water, make sure you are getting enough sleep, take care in the sun, maintain a healthy diet and remember that smoking ages your skin.
