Tips For Beautiful Skin and What Ingredients To Look For In a Product
For most women, part of the morning and evening routines involve a skincare regimen of applying creams, moisturizers, tonics, lotions, and the like. Why do women put themselves through this? They do it primarily to combat the signs of aging, and to maintain youthful looks and beautiful skin! It is a safe bet, however, most women haven't put much thought into what is in the products that they are using.
Some women probably do not realize that what they are putting on their skin may actually be undermining what they are trying to prevent to begin with. In fact the average woman puts twelve products on her skin daily, most of which contain harmful chemical preservatives. Dr. Myron Wentz, founder and chairperson of USANA Health Sciences, has this to say about beauty in the company magazine's June/July 2005 issue: "Some say that beauty is only skin deep. Nonsense! I believe that true beauty is a reflection of true health, and true health begins deep inside each and every cell in the body. But true health and true beauty have an outer component, which is why we require protection from environmental insults such as solar radiation, pollutants in our environment and the drying effects of air. . . The fact is, you simply cannot contain a healthy body if your skin isn't healthy. And your skin can't be healthy if your are subjecting it to toxic substances that are ultimately absorbed into your body."
So, what can women do? How can they combat environmental pollutants, the affect of solar radiation, and the drying effects of air? How can they be sure they are using the very best products on their skin so they can be healthy inside and out?
Here are a few tips to assist in this process:
1.. Be very aware of what is in skincare products. Use products that are natural as much as possible. Here are some ideas of what to look for:
Hyaluronic Acid - don't be afraid that it says acid! Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most essential ingredients in keeping a fresh hydrated face all day long. It helps pull moisture deeper into the skin, ensuring you don't dry out at any point in the day
Niaminicide - A water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines while also helping banish uneven skin tone.
Vitamin B5 - This stabilizes your skin's barrier ensuring that less water escapes through your skin maintaining hydration and elasticity.
Matricaria Flower Extract - Acts as an anti-inflammatory and calms sensitive skin ensuring that no redness shows through your makeup. Plus it inhibits the growth of bacteria in order to keep your skin fresh all day.
Vitamin C - A.K.A. the holy grail when it comes to skin care. Vitamin C tightens, brightens and rejuvenate your skin to make it look fresh, young and clear.
2. If possible, use products that are paraben free. Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives that are widely used in personal care products such as shampoos, conditioners, hair styling products, make-up, facial masks, skin lotions and creams, and deodorants. They also are typically ingredients in baby lotions, shampoos, and other personal care products for infants and children. In addition, parabens are in many foods and pharmaceutical products. Researchers are beginning to find parabens in benign and malignant human breast tumors. While some studies have challenged their toxicity in many products and question their long term affect on humans, using products that are paraben free can eliminate the risk of exposure to this harmful chemical.
3. Drink plenty of water! Water hydrates skin and hair as well as flushes toxins out of the body.
4. Limit stress or learn to manage it effectively. Stress is harmful both emotionally and physically. Find that stress reliever activity that works best and use it on a daily basis!
