These days, it seems every cosmetic company out there has jumped on the bandwagon of skincare and anti-aging products. While many are offering useful and effective products, others may be selling products that do little or nothing to improve or protect your skin. By looking for the following ingredients in your skincare and anti-aging products, you can avoid some of the skin care product frauds being sold on the market today.
If your skin tone is uneven, blotchy, or discolored, you are likely no stranger to the many products and creams available on the market that promise you a more even skin tone and the reduction of age and sun spots. Before buying a product that promises you these results, check for Tyrostat in the key ingredients. Tyrostat has been shown to reduce the tyrosinase enzyme in aging skin, and lead to a clearer, more even complexion.
If you are looking for baby-soft, bounce-back, hydrated skin, you need a moisturizer that provides both firming and hydration. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and makes up much of the connective tissue in skin. It is a common ingredient in many anti-aging serums and moisturizers that attest to promote young, soft, and firm skin, especially around the facial area.
For anyone who suffers from oily, acne-laden skin, it can be difficult to find a balanced formula that leaves your face moist without clogging your pores and creating acne and blackheads. Jojoba oil is a good option for many people looking to find a face moisturizer that leaves the skin feeling fresh and pores unclogged. Look for jojoba oil in your moisturizer cream to prevent both extremes of dry skin or an oily complexion.
By knowing just what you are looking to gain by using a skin care product, and then carefully checking the ingredients used in the solution, you can be a more informed consumer, as well as get the skin care you want and deserve.
