Why You Should Use a Natural Skin Care Product

Sep 6, 2008
Human beings are vain by nature. We want to look youthful, healthy and sexy. One of the best ways to achieve that is by taking care of ourselves and our skin. One of the best ways of looking after your skin is by using a natural skin care product. However, some consumers are unable to discern between products that use natural ingredients and those that don't.

A natural skin care product should use as many natural ingredients as possible. It should not contain any harmful chemicals. It should also refrain from using dioxane, mineral oils, manmade fragrances, parabens and alcohols to name a few.

Some of these ingredients can be harmful to your skin. They may clog your pores and suffocate your skin. Other may make your skin more vulnerable to germs and viruses. Some of these ingredients may even cause cancer if used in large doses for prolonged periods of time.

A natural skin care product should not contain any harmful chemicals or substances that could be bad for your health, or skin. A natural skin care product should use collagen, elastin, phytessence wakame and CoQ10 as its ingredients.

Collagen and elastin are naturally occurring proteins that are produced by our bodies. The proteins keep our skin taunt, smooth and wrinkle-free. Unfortunately, as we age, we start to lose these proteins. To solve this problem, we should use products that have collagen and elastin in them.

Phytessence wakame is an ingredient found in exotic sea kelp from Japan. This ingredient helps to protect the elastic and collagen fibers in your skin. CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is a powerful antioxidant that counters cell-damaging free radicals.

An excellent natural skin care product may even use an ingredient called Cynergy TK. Cynergy TK is a cutting edge ingredient that stimulates the body's collagen production.

Unfortunately, the presence of these ingredients is not enough to guarantee success. There are many products that claim to contain these ingredients, but what these products fail to mention is that these ingredients are present in low concentrations.

Do not be fooled by products that proudly wave this list of ingredients as the presence of these ingredients may be so miniscule in content that their effects are negligible. Before purchasing a natural skin care product, examine not only the type of ingredients found in the product, but also degree in which they are present.

Modernity has place a great strain on our health and skin. As we live longer, Time becomes more brutal in revealing our age. Thankfully, we can always turn to a natural skin care product to help us maintain and rejuvenate our skin. The industrial concrete jungle we have built for ourselves already pollutes the environment with harmful chemicals and unnatural substances. We should not exacerbate the situation by applying harmful and potentially dangerous chemicals to our skin. The next time you feel the need to develop a young, healthy, radiant appearance, consider using a natural skin care product to help you turn back the hands of time.
