Want To Buy The Best Skin Care Products?

Jul 25, 2008
Do you know what to look for in the best skin care products? Many people, men and women alike, want to appear more youthful and get rid of those wrinkles and lines that can come with aging. If you walk down the health and beauty aisle of any store you will see there is an innumerable selection of creams, lotions, serums, and cosmetics. Each one claims to make you look young again and get rid of lines and wrinkles.

Many of these products are simply ineffective for the purpose they were made. The skin care industry is a multi-billion industry. The manufacturer's of some skin care products put just enough good ingredients in their products just so they can be legally listed on the label. You want a product that will help your body to re-grow its own collagen and elastin.

There are three ingredients that make up one of the most powerful skin care compound available. Phytessence Wakame is a kelp that is native to the Japanese Sea. This kelp blocks the enzyme called hyaluronidase that destroys the skin's hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid acts like a glue holding the fibers of collagen and elastin together. When collagen and elastin breaks down,, wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes appear. Hyaluronan is beneficial in tissue repair.

Cynergy TK helps the body to re-grow its collagen and elastin. Over 18 days there was 14% improvement in the moisture of the skin and over 40% improve improvement of the elasticity of the skin over 18 days.

Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant. CoQ10 is not readily absorbed by the skin. The nano-emulsified form called Nano-lipobelle H-EQ10 penetrates up to 7 layers deep into the skin. Collagen and elastin growth is supported by Co Q10.

Three of many harmful or potentially harmful ingredients include parabens, alcohols, and dioxane. Parabens have been known to affect the endocrine system and linked to causing skin cancer, as well as aggravate already present allergies and skin conditions. They can also irritate normal skin. They should not be used by women who are or who may be pregnant.

Alcohols including ethanol, ethyl alcohol, and methanol are irritating to the skin. They tend to dry out the skin. Alcohols also strip away the natural acid mantle of the skin. This can make you more susceptible to bacteria, moulds, and viruses.

Dioxane is synthetically derived from coconut and is frequently used in skin care products. A concentration of 1,4-dioxane is a known carcinogenic in California. Dioxane is readily absorbed into the skin.

Buying the best skin care products will likely take some effort and research on your part.
You don't want a product with preservatives, fillers, or chemicals in them. You do want a product with high concentrations of the most beneficial ingredients.
