Aging Skin and Natural Skin Care Products
Aging skin is just one more type of skin that can benefit greatly from natural skin care, however, you need to be careful and read the product labels before try a "natural" product. Because a product may be made with all natural ingredients and still contain ingredients that cause irritation and allergic reactions.
Before deciding to switch over to natural skin care products, make sure that you have a regular cleansing routine. You may not think it's very important but by cleansing, toning/exfoliating, and moisturizing regularly you can actually help prevent premature aging. Sunscreen is also a product that should be part of your basic skin care routine.
Not a day goes by that we don't hear about some new and innovative ingredient for younger looking skin, however, these following ingredients are vital in anti aging creams and skin care products for maturing skin. So, it is a good idea to look for products that include them.
Combat Aging with These Ingredients
You many not consider the following ingredients to be "natural", but they are all derived from natural products. Natural skin care products that contain them have shown their effectiveness. So, it is advisable that you look for products that contain one or several of them.
This group of acids is derived from natural products and used, primarily, for its exfoliating properties. They can also help tighten skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Look for products that contain the following AHAs: glycolic acid, lactic acid, tartaric acid, malic acid and citric acid.
When a product contains Vitamin A you may find that the ingredient list reads retinol, Tretinoin and Retinyl Pamitate. These are the names of Vitamin A derivatives that are responsible for the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.
Since all forms of Vitamin A can lead to irritation it is important that you make sure to be extra generous with your moisturizer or look for products with a lower concentration of Vitamin A. This warning is especially true for people with sensitive or dry skin. Retinyl Palmitate can provide better results without producing as much irritation, however, keep in mind that when using any product that contains Vitamin A you should always apply sunscreen before going outdoors.
Vitamin C will appear as ascorbic acid when listed on products. This is a potent antioxidant that can help treat age spots as well as wrinkles and dull skin. Vitamin C and its derivatives are also known for boosting the production of collagen.
This ingredient helps keep the skin moisturized. Each molecule of hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water which means smoother, plumper and younger looking skin.
Coenzyme Q 10
This antioxidant is an ingredient that can help repair skin damage and improve the production of collagen.
A natural wrinkles cream, like BIOSKINREJUVENATION, can help you deal with sun damage, hyperpigmentation and other problems related to premature aging. BIOSKINREJUVENATION is made with a revolutionary natural ingredient - snail serum. This natural ingredient is highly effective yet gentle enough that it can be used to help treat aging and mature skin.
