The cosmetic industry has given birth to thousands of skin care products that promise to pamper, rejuvenate, and repair your skin. Millions of dollars have been spent on ad campaigns to promote the products. Expensive packaging, television commercials, and hundreds of complex ingredients are only few of the factors that make these products unbelievably expensive.
Skin care products are the closest thing that we have when it comes to the idealistic prospect of a taste from the fountain of youth. The more the products get bought because of the promises, the bigger the capital that the manufacturers will invest into it. However, it doesn’t prove the fact as to whether the products do work. What you need to do as a consumer is to do a lot of research on the products – particularly their ingredients – before you fall for any of the company’s fancy advertisements.
When on the lookout for some skin care products, you need to know what you need. You also need to know what you have to avoid: parabens, alcohol, fragrances, mineral oil, and dioxane. Some of the ingredients that work safely and effectively in the best skin care products are Phytessence Wakame and CoQ10.
There are many products that feature different types depending on your needs. Before you go ahead and grab one, the first thing that you need to do is to look at the back of the product and check out its ingredients.
For the face, you will want these skin care products: Facial Cleanser, Facial Toner, and Facial Moisturizer. The cleanser works to get rid of the dirt and sweat that have accumulated on your face, while the toner works best to further cleanse the skin in a more gentle way, and remove any cleanser residue. A facial moisturizer is very important because it works to keep your skin supple and protected. Some moisturizers work to fight skin aging by stimulating the production of natural collagen and elastin in the skin.
For the body you will want a body wash and body lotion. These products pretty much work the same way as the facial cleanser and moisturizer. The only difference is that they are formulated to suit the thicker skin which is on the body.
Besides topical skin care products, you would also want to work from within to maximize the benefits. Since the skin is the largest organ of your body, you will need to take extra care of it. Topical skin care can be limited because you sometimes do not have the time to do the effort and apply the products on your skin. A healthy and safe supplement will certainly help in taking care of your skin. The ingredients should contain:
- Iodine, which helps in keeping the thyroid gland healthy (healthy skin depends on a healthy thyroid hormone production).
- Vitamin B5 (D-Pantothenate), which maintains a balanced protein, fat, and carb metabolism.
- Omega 3 Fish Oil, which contains essential fatty acids that give skin a healthy glow.
- Sulfur (as Methylsulfonylmethane), which makes cell walls more permeable. This increases circulation, and in turn aids in regulating insulin production which is vital for skin health.
- Biotin, which helps metabolize fats, proteins and carbs.
Skin care products shouldn’t be limited only to topical products, but it is also best to incorporate healthy, safe supplements for better overall results.
