This is a brief anti aging skin care guide. In this guide, it is my focus is to share with you some of the new must-have ingredients that are proven to be amazingly effective, natural, feel good, and are just pleasant to use.
Let me start by telling you anti aging skin care treatments do not have to include acidic compounds that burn off a layer of cells. And for older faces, exfoliation and scrubbing compounds, as well as alpha and beta hydroxyl, are not even appropriate.
As a matter of fact, what your skin really needs are ingredients that facilitate the growth of new and healthy cells. For your face and the outside of your body, you need nutrients, proteins, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Consequently, these same ingredients are also needed for cell regeneration on the inside of your body.
Without the right manufacturing processes, merely including any of these ingredients in an anti aging skin care treatment is not effective. For example, adding any old variety of antioxidant is not enough. The chosen antioxidant needs to be one that penetrates deeply in order to destroy the free radicals produced after exposure to sunlight and air pollution.
The manufacturing processes in many anti aging skin care treatments do not penetrate as deep as necessary. Only nanobelle COQ10, a type of antioxidant, has been clinically proven to penetrate deep down through the layers, neutralizing free radicals and allowing the skin's healing process to begin.
As an added bonus, when COQ10 and vitamin E are combined, the result is an emulsion that it so fine that it can be easily absorbed through the pores. It's great for your skin and it feels smooth and creamy.
Another powerful antioxidant ingredient is the extract from wakame; a type of Japanese sea kelp. Wakame is a wonderful natural antioxidant that contains a number of vitamins and minerals.
Wakame is very special for this reason. It prevents an enzyme destruction that decreases levels of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a protein that binds skin fibers together. By preventing the destruction of this protein, levels steadily increase to those found in much younger faces. I think I'm safe to say we all want younger faces, right?
Next, I want to talk about why collagen as an ingredient is not worthwhile. Our faces are composed of collagen and elastin fibers held together by protein chains that act like glue.
The collagen used in commercial anti aging skin care treatments are derived from cow hide and can not be absorbed or used by the body. It only works in injection form because it “fattens up" the lowest skin layer and stretches out the wrinkles.
Products that are effective as anti aging skin care treatments will include ingredients that encourage the production of new collagen and elastin fibers; while also allowing those proteins to remain active longer. An excellent anti aging skin care treatment will include Cynergy TK. Cynergy TK has been clinically proven to increase production of collagen, elastin, and new cells.
Finally, manuka honey, a unique type of honey produced in New Zealand, is another natural anti aging skin care ingredient that is especially important for its antibacterial properties. Manuka honey does wonders for skin blemishes, acne, and eczema. This can be very beneficial to men who shave or those with skin irritations. Since manuka honey has antibiotic and antiseptic properties, it's great at healing and moisturizing.
There you have it. The newest and greatest ingredients for anti aging skin care treatments. There is much more to learn, so always keep an eye open for the latest research.
