Natural Skin Care Products
Ever wondered if the claims for all those natural skin care, anti-aging products actually work? Or, maybe it’s all just marketing hype designed to get you to part with your hard earned money? Well, I’ve wondered the same thing, and the answer to both questions is a resounding yes.
Yes, some products do work and some products are nothing but money sucking machines that will not do anything more good than a simple moisturizer would.
The aim of this article is to examine the best anti-aging skin care ingredients and products to see if there are natural skin care products that actually will work. Before we go too far though, it’s important to first understand what a good skin care product needs to accomplish.
The product must promote the regrowth of collagen and elastin
Two extremely important elements that keep your skin smooth and elastic. We lose these naturally occurring proteins as we grow older. However, by promoting the regrowth of these two elements, you will start to see your wrinkles and fine lines start to fade.
Secondly, any anti-aging skin care product, natural or not, must be able to protect your skin from further damage due to oxidization and free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that have been associating with aging, tissue damage, and many other diseases. Your skin, left without protection against free radicals, can be dramatically affecting and make your skin age beyond your actual years.
Thirdly, an anti-aging skin care regime must keep your skin from losing an important “glue” for collagen and elastin called hyaluronic acid. An enzyme called hyaluronidase will cause a breakdown in hyaluronic acid that leads to sagging skin and wrinkles. And, without hyaluronic acid collagen and elastin regrowth is becomes a problem.
So, now that we know the three important issues that any natural, anti-aging skin care product must address, let’s take a look at the ingredients that are shown to fix these problems and reverse the signs of aging.
Natural anti-aging Ingredients
First, a highly effective ingredient for preventing hyaluronidase is Phytessence Wakame, a sea kelp native to Japan. It’s rich in calcium, potassium and B vitamins. But, more importantly, when it is applying topically, it inhibits the breakdown down of hyaluronic acid and it is proving to make wrinkles improve.
Also, to promote the regrowth of collagen and elastin, the product should contain Keratin. Keratin is has clinical prove and is effective and helping collagen and elastin to grow. Once you see improvements in your collagen and elastin, you’ll see dramatic improvements in your skin.
Lastly, to protect your skin from free radicals and correct the damage that they have done to your skin, you will want to employ the aid of anti-oxidants. While it’s good to eat healthy foods that contain antioxidants such as blueberries, blackberries, pomegranate and other fruits and vegetables, you will also get very good results from applying some forms topically. This is best done with a deep penetrating form of CoEnzyme Q10 called Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10 that gets down and “gobbles up” free radicals.
