How To Look 10 Years Younger Like Jen Aniston!

Tue, April 5, 2011 12:30pm EDT by 10 Comments

Read on for expert tips on what you should look for and the greatest products to try!

Want to get smooth, wrinkle-free skin like Jennifer Aniston, 42? It’s so hard to find anti-aging treatments that really work– there are so many on the market, and they all have different claims. We spoke to Dr. Bruce E. Katz, director of the Juva Skin & Laser Center and the Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Clinic at Mount Sinai Medial Center, and Dr. Howard Sobel,  editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Dermatology, to find out what to look for:

    1. Focus on ingredients!

    It’s so important to pick products that are packed with the top wrinkle fighters. Dr. Katz says there are several classes of anti-agers: antioxidants (like green tea and vitamin C), idebenone (found in products like Prevage), retinoids (like Retinol), alpha and beta hydroxy acids (like glycolic acid), growth factors, and peptides.Though there are other ingredients that companies claim work, Dr. Katz says “these are the ones that are used most in the industry, recommended by dermatologists.”

    Dr. Sobel suggests we look for Retinol, glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, and metrixyl: “Topical application of vitamin A has been widely proven to improve fine and coarse wrinkling roughness, pigmentation, and sallowness. Vitamin C has proven itself as an effective anti-aging ingredient in multiple studies, demonstrating improvement in skin texture, wrinkling and roughness.  Alpha-hydroxy acids will improve skin damage from UVA/UVB rays.”

    2. Don’t believe marketing hype!

    Dr. Katz warns that he’s seen a stunning amount of product that is all marketing and what he calls “soft science.” He says, “You have to find the right ingredients and get products that have been shown to deliver. A product may say it has vitamin C in it, but it might be the wrong form of vitamin C.

    Be careful not to think a product is better just because it’s more expensive, either: “You don’t have to spend a lot of money.A lot of women think– and this is not correct– that the more money it costs the better it is.” Dr. Sobel warns us about skin care products with exaggerated claims. “A general rule to go by is that a product should under-promise and over-deliver. If the promise on the label sounds better than a face lift, don’t waste your money.”

    Do your homework!

    To separate the good from the bad, Dr. Katz suggests visiting the American Academy of Dermatology’s website, which offers information about anti-aging products.

    You can also visit your dermatologist to get customized recommendations for your skin.Dr. Sobel informs us that there are specific lotions that are directed to different skin types. “Retinol is the winner for fine lines and wrinkles and can be found in many over-the-counter products. Products that contain salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide and sulfur are the best for acne. Hydroquinone 2% achieve the best results for pigmentation. Omega 3 Oil and hyaluronic acid are good for dry skin and inflammation.”

    Remember that there’s no such thing as a miracle in a bottle!

    Dr. Katz says that topical treatments are more preventative: “They aren’t going to take away wrinkles or sunspots completely, but they will slow down aging and reduce sun damage. It’s preventative, like having a good diet and exercising to help your health.”

    Dr. Sobel agrees with this idea and tells us that anti-aging lotions do work, but only to a certain degree. It varies depending on the type of skin you have and your own beauty skin care regime.

    Expert tip: Mix up your skin care routine! Dr. Katz says his recommendation to patients is to combine several of the classes mentioned above “for a synergistic effect.” He likes Juva HA Cleanser in the morning, followed by Juva Green Tea Serum; for evening, he suggests Neocutis Bio-Gel and a peptide eye cream (try Kinerase Restructure Firming Eye Cream).

    Expert Favorites: Dr. Sobel likes the ingredients that are found in DDF products and Lancome’s youth activating collection. Other dermatologists recommend the Prevage skincare line.

You people have chosen the worse person. This photo is probably air brushed, in JA’s recent photo’s the bottom half of her face looks swollen and is quite a size, I don’t mean it in a bad way, but it seems as if she recently had some procedure done. I don’t envy or would I want to look like Jennifer Aniston, Angelina maybe but not Jenifer Aniston. Actually JA, needs to go back to whoever injected her face with whatever it was, and asked them to reverse it because it looks terrible.

Your article said you didn’t have to spend alot to get a good anti-aging cream ($155? You kidding?). We women are not that naive. Ms. Aniston’s millions buys Juvederm injections around her mouth, and laser treatments, dermobrasion on her face (she likes to tan) and Botox and who knows what else. Maybe she uses the Spa lotions (which are good and not cheap) in between facial treatments but she’s getting more help than just from bottles off the shelf. I’m sure her photos are photo shopped also.

She got upper lip collagen injected, laser demarbrasion make her skin shine , botox, nose jobs, and juvederm. Her body got lipo-suction before famous, big thigh fat reduced…..But the botox make her face bloating and look heavy. She should stop it! Old is old! Who care!

first of all she is not 42 in that photo-what is it 10 or 15 years old-second unless you get botox and collagen fills quarterly the lotion is not going to do squat-Aniston doesn’t rely on lotion to cheat time-she has lots and lots of expensive help-and she still doesn’t really look that good-why didn’t you use a more recent photo like the ones from Mexico-I know the Jen Hags are a pretty brainless crowd of baaa=ing sheep-but really

These are good products and i will try them. I did a lot of research and found http://www.essenceofargan.com and it is amazing. I use it daily as part of my anti-aging routine. It seems this natural oil is virtually unknown in the US. It has worked wonders for me – and is very popular in Europe.
I hope this helps-
