Anti-Aging Skin Care Lebanon OH

What sets antiaging products apart from plain old moisturizers, which merely plump skin cells, is their claim to soften wrinkles, minimize fine lines, and help prevent damage from happening in the first place. More than ever, natural antiaging products are delivering on this promise, through formulations that are better able to penetrate skin, more sophisticated exfoliating agents, and plant-based ingredients chosen for their healing properties.

Natural Beauty - Fighting Age - Gently

Sometimes going natural means you have to make certain sacrifices—maybe the shampoo isn’t as sudsy as you’d like, or the lipstick doesn’t come in as many colors. But not, it seems, when it comes to antiaging creams. In this case, going natural really is a great option for your skin—the more vitamins, minerals, and botanical ingredients your skin gets, the better.

What sets antiaging products apart from plain old moisturizers, which merely plump skin cells, is their claim to soften wrinkles, minimize fine lines, and help prevent damage from happening in the first place. More than ever, natural antiaging products are delivering on this promise, through formulations that are better able to penetrate skin, more sophisticated exfoliating agents, and plant-based ingredients chosen for their healing properties.

So while there’s still no such thing as a face-lift in a jar—nothing is that good—the newest natural antiaging creams come pretty darn close. Here are a few of the elements that are making the difference.

More potent nutrients
Skin scientists have long known about the antiaging benefits of antioxidants such as vitamin C and coenzyme Q10. The trick has been to formulate them so they don’t break down before they have a chance to fend off and repair damage from possibly the greatest threat to youthful skin—free radicals, the harmful molecules produced by ultraviolet light, pollution, and natural bodily processes.

The answer? Pairing antioxidants with the right oils and fats. Doing so stabilizes these fragile nutrients, thereby helping them penetrate deeply into the skin. “And when you’re talking about antiaging, you want to go as deep into the skin as you can,” says cosmetic chemist David Pollock, who has been formulating skin creams for 14 years and is currently working with the natural beauty company Desert Essence.

Some experts are particularly fond of squalene, which is derived from olives, closely resembles sebum (the oil in human skin), and has been shown in at least one study to enhance the absorption of antioxidants, particularly vitamin A. But there are plenty of other good carrier agents as well.

“We used to think of the skin as a barrier, like Saran Wrap,” says dermatologist Amy Newburger of Scarsdale, New York. “But depending on what the active ingredients are suspended in, we now know they can get through.”

• What to look for on the label: One of the first ingredients listed should be the carrier. Shea butter is a good one, as is squalene, along with grape seed, borage, palm, and jojoba oils. Antioxidants don’t need to be listed high up; a little can go a long way. Among the most effective are vitamins C, E, A, and coenzyme Q10. Green tea and grape seed extract also offer free-radical-fighting power. Certain combinations of two or more antioxidants can be even more effective.

More effective exfoliators
Exfoliating acids have come a long way from their original incarnation as sandy scrubs. The...
