The Benefits Of Antioxidants In Skin Care Products

Jul 24, 2008
What are antioxidants? It is important to know what they are and their function before discussing antioxidants in skin care. Antioxidants are essential in ridding the body of free radicals. Free radicals are atoms with unpaired electron. They attack healthy cells and cause skin damage and premature aging.

There is a lot of mentioning of antioxidants on television. Most typically they are in commercials about vitamins or nutritional supplements. Antioxidants can also be applied topically in the forms of creams or serums as well as taken orally.

The benefits of skin care projects in general will help to keep your skin youthful, reduce wrinkles and lines, and help the skin to retain its moisture. It can reduce signs of aging. Skin care products are best researched well beforehand before making a purchase. Some may contain known carcinogens and other unhealthy ingredients that can harm your skin.

Two components of skin is collagen and Elastin. Collagen is a fibrous protein with a lot of tensile strength. It keeps the skin firm among other things. Elastin is a protein as well and helps to keep your skin flexible. Elastin helps stretched skin go back to its original condition. When either or both of these break down you will see lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

There are good ingredients and harmful ingredients in skin care products. Many products do not work or they perform poorly. Unfortunately, many of these are the more expensive products that this is true about. Some manufacturers put just enough of the good stuff in their products so they can be legally listed on the label. People are tricked into thinking they are getting a good product.

Many are just fillers and look great while it is on, but when it is washed off, there is no change. Really good products not only contain beneficial ingredients, but are natural as well. Collagen may seem like a good ingredient, but this is not the case as its molecules are too big to be absorbed by the skin when it is topically applied

Good ingredients will help your body to produce new collagen and elastin. Phytessence Wakame is a type of kelp that is found in the Japanese Sea. It blocks the hyaluronidase enzyme. It breaks down hyaluronic acid. This break down can cause sagging skin and those dark circles under the eyes. Hyaluronan aids tissue repair and an important part of the skin.

Cynergy TK is a substance that helps your own collagen to grow again. Your skin will remain or become firm, you will look younger, healthier, and properly hydrated. It has been shown to improve skin moisture by over 10%.

CoQ10-coenzymeQ10 is listed as an ingredient in many products. In this form it is not as beneficial as you might be led to believe. A form of CoQ10 called Nano-lipobelle H-EQ10. It is a nano-emulsion form that can penetrate 7 layers deep into the skin. Nano-lipobelle will aid the production of collagen and elastin. Cynergy TK, Phytessence Wakame together are among the most powerful anti-aging skin care compounds available.

Natural products including antioxidants skin care products, with the right concentration of the proper ingredients will keep your skin looking beautiful.
