The Upsides And Downsides Of Beauty And Skin Care Products

Jul 24, 2008
The beauty and skin care products industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. Unfortunately, many of the products can range from lotion, make-up, anti-wrinkle and anti-aging products. In our quest for eternally youthful skin and for beauty, most people will do or try almost anything. Magazines, television ads, movie stars and models promote their own concept of beauty - after all isn't beauty in the eye of the beholder?

As with most things there are two sides: the upside and the downsides. This is no less true for beauty and skin care products. They are packaged in fancy bottles and jars as well as other packaging to draw us in.

Let's talk about the good sides of these products.

These products can help to improve your appearance and make you feel more confident.
Some women who use cosmetics sometimes feel more beautiful and younger looking while using them. Many of these products can reduce lines and wrinkles. They may also relieve or prevent acne flare-ups.

The most beneficial ingredients would be those that assisted your body in producing new collagen and elastin to keep your skin smoother and healthier. Your skin is the largest body organ. The exposed parts such as your face, neck, arms and legs are most vulnerable to wrinkles, lines, and acne. This is why it is so important to take good care of your skin.

Collagen is a fibrous protein with tensile strength. It helps to keep your skin nice and firm. Elastin on the other hand is another protein that provides skin with flexibility and firmness. It helps to bring your skin back to its normal place if it is stretched.

CoQ10 or coenzyme Q10 is a very strong antioxidant that protects your body from free radicals that have an unpaired electron. These can cause damage to other cells including skin cells. As you age, this antioxidant decreases giving way to wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging. There are a number of forms of CoQ10 but not every one of them can be used on the skin topically. The one form that is usable by the skin is called Nano-lipobelle H-EQ10.

Nano-lipobelle H-EQ10 is a nano-emulsion form and can deeply penetrate the skin up to 7 layers deep. This means it provides better benefits for your skin and its health. It is very effective in destroying the free radicals that can cause so much damage to your skin. It can also help your body to create collagen and elastin. Collagen, CoQ10, and Nano-lipobelle EQ10 are among the most powerful anti-aging beauty and skin care available.

Phytessence Wakame is a unique kelp from the Japanese Sea. It helps the collagen and elastin fibers to stick together. It helps to breakdown a harmful enzyme called hyaluronidase that breaks down hyaluronic acid in your skin. Hyaluronan is also very beneficial in tissue repair.

Cynergy TK is a substance that stimulates your body to re-grow your own collagen. This improves the firmness and flexibility of your skin. Studies have shown a ongoing improvement of skin moisture of 14% in a period of over 15 days with this new new wonder substance.

The downside of skin and beauty products are that they have ingredients that are not only ineffective but also damage your skin. These are parabens, alcohols, mineral oil, dioxane, and fragrances. Some of these ingredients can be carcinogenic, which can clog pores and irritating the skin causing dryness and possible dependence on the lotion. They can also interrupt your body's ability to get rid of toxins causing acne flare-ups and chapping.

The products may not be well researched in the rush to get it marketed and available to consumers. Some may look really good while it is on your skin but not so good once it is removed.

Other products may not meet their claims and include only miniscule amounts of things such as collagen just so it can be put on the label leaving you to think you are getting a good product.

In order to get the best product possible, they must contain high concentrations of the best ingredients such as collagen and CoQ10. Researching the products online may help you to choose the best product for your needs. If necessary, consulting your doctor can also be very beneficial.
