Designer names and celebrity endorsements might tempt you, but you should know that the claims made by these companies are based on one or two active ingredients. Those ingredients are present in very low quantities. The majority of the cream is water, petrolatum, glycerin or other inert, ineffective compounds.
The manufacturers take these compounds combine them and add artificial preservatives, fragrances and colors. Then they sell it to you with their advertising and marketing campaigns.
They claim to provide the best skin firming face creams, yet they come out with something ďnew and improvedĒ every year or two. The company majors know very little about the skinís or the bodyís overall health. They DO know a lot about how to get people like you and me to buy their products.
If youíre like me, you want something different. Youíre tired of forking out hundreds and hundreds of dollars, while waiting to see results that never come.
Topical creams can only be effective if they contain the right ingredients that support your skinís natural rejuvenation processes and overall health. Hereís what the best skin firming face lotion contains.
In clinical studies, this ingredient has been shown to increase firmness by 42% after only 18 days of use. After just one use, volunteersí skin was 27% firmer. We lose firmness, because we lose the ability to retain moisture.
The presence of fatty acids and proteins that ďholdĒ our skin cells together decreases over time. The body starts producing fewer new cells. The older cells contain more free radical molecules and fewer antioxidants to counter them. The best skin firming face care products address all of these issues.
A kind of seaweed, this ingredient has been shown to inhibit an enzymatic activity that reduces skin levels of hyaluronic acid, one of those proteins that ďglueĒ the cells together. Over a period of five days, the enzymes that break the protein down were reduced by 52%. So, protein levels naturally begin to rise, again.
Coenzyme Q10 & Natural Vitamin E
Coenzyme Q10 is one of the most potent antioxidants that we know of. Skin levels are quickly depleted in the presence of UV radiation from the sun. As I mentioned above older cells contain fewer antioxidants to counter free radicals. If un-countered, free radicals damage the cellular membrane and they break down important proteins like collagen. This leads to sagging, wrinkling, loss of firmness and all of the signs of aging.
Vitamin E is a well-know antioxidant, but most companies use a synthetically created version. If youíre like me, you know that natural is always better.
So, thatís what the best skin firming face products contain. Itís worth you time to look for them.
