Let’s face it – not all anti aging skin creams are good for your skin. The most will just moisturize your skin, but do nothing to really fight the signs of aging. Some might even make your skin look older due to false and/or substandard quality ingredients. There are a few things that a good anti aging skin cream should do for your skin.
Read on if you want to know what they are and how you can be sure your cream is really helping your skin.
1. Enable your body to boost its own collagen production
It might come as a surprise to you, but applying collagen on your skin in the form of a moisturizer is a waste of time. The collagen molecules are too big; they cannot penetrate through the skin, making skin creams with collagen a waste of money.
What you need is a product that enables your body to make its own collagen again. When we’re young, our bodies produce all the collagen we need. With age, this ability is reduced. Some substances can fight this, though. One of the newest and best ones on the market is Xtend TK. Skin creams with this type of keratin can enable your body to start producing more collagen again.
2. Simulating the elastin regrowth of your skin
Another protein vital in keeping your skin youthful is elastin. Like collagen, if applied directly on the skin, it won’t do anything for you. Look for a skin moisturizer with Xtend TK, it will boost your body’s elastin production, too.
3. Destroy free radicals
Your skin cream should fight free radicals, one if the main culprits in making your skin look older. The best ingredient in a skin care product that can destroy free radicals before they get the chance to harm your skin are antioxidants. But some antioxidants are better than others. One of the most effective ones is Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10. This is a form of CoEnzyme Q10 that your skin can use to a high extend.
4. Boost hyaluronic acid
What is hyaluronic acid, you ask? Hyaluronic acid, working with elastin and collagen, is essential in maintaining the elasticity and youthfulness of the skin. Without hyaluronic acid, the elastin and collagen cannot work in an optimal way, which leads to older looking skin and dark eye circles.
You can protect your skin’s hyaluronic acid with a skin care product which fights activity of hyaluronidase. One of the most powerful ingredients to do this is wakame sea kelp. Make sure to look for this ingredient when choosing an anti aging skin care cream.
5. Help reduce age spots
Many of us will get spots on our skin when we get older. Let’s face it, they’re not especially pretty to look at. A skin cream with natural vitamin E will be able to fight these signs of aging, so you can look younger again.
