In this anti aging skin care guide, I am going to talk about some ingredients that are found in effective anti aging skin care treatment creams and body lotions. These are not the common things that you typically see in a department store cosmetic, but they are definitely the best.
Clinical research and z block proven results backs up the claims made by products containing CoenzymeQ10 and natural vitamin E, but this anti aging skin care guide focuses primarily on COQ10. A special form called HE Q10 combines both antioxidants and the manufacturing process is such that the nutrients can penetrate deeply through the skin’s layers.
HE Q10 when used as an anti aging skin care treatment has been shown in scientific studies to produce quite a dramatic anti-wrinkle effect. This is due to its ability to increase collagen and elastin production, by nourishing and reducing the effects of free radicals.
You often read about free radical damage in an anti aging skin care guide. But, you may not understand what the term really means. The chemical process is difficult to understand, but basically, the sun and environmental pollutants, even common dirt and grime, aggravate and agitate oxygen molecules, which then turn on the skin’s molecules.
Eventually, this process causes damage inside and outside of the body. It’s why we find anti-oxidants like COQ10, vitamin C and E in our health supplements. An anti aging skin care treatment should be like a health supplement for the “outside” of your body, which takes the brunt of the abuse thrown out by the sun and the environment.
The typical anti aging skin care guide often suggests the use of sunscreen. Because of the controversy surrounding the use of those products, I would simply suggest that you avoid spending prolonged periods in the sun. Wear a hat to protect your face. Stay in the shade as much as possible.
If you are sailing or participating in another outdoor activity, use a “sun-block” that provides protection from both UVA and UVB radiation. Sunscreens only protect against UVA radiation, which is responsible for burning, but UVB penetrates more deeply.UVB is believed to cause more aggressive forms of cancer, as well as free radical damage that cause wrinkles. In short, anti aging skin care treatment should not contain sunscreen or an SPF rating, but many do, so shop carefully.
I’m sure that’s unusual advice for an anti aging skin care guide, but the new research suggests that sunscreens may actually increase the risk of certain types of skin-cancer. They definitely inhibit the body’s ability to produce vitamin D and the skin’s ability to protect itself by producing melanin. HE Q10 in anti aging skin care treatment is another story entirely.
When researchers began to look at the effect that COQ10 had on the skin’s cells, they were amazed. Apparently, no one realized that exposure to the sun dramatically decreased levels of COQ10. The nutrient performs many functions in organs throughout the human body, but no one realized the function that it performed in the body’s largest organ.
Free radical damage has to do with the transfer of electrons from one molecule to another. Oxygen molecules basically “steal” electrons from the skin’s molecules and they start to steal them from each other. COQ10 actually puts the electrons back where they belong, thus undoing some of the damage already done.
Further, when used regularly as anti aging skin care treatment, COQ10 stops the process that causes oxygen molecules to react with the skins in the first place. So, you have protection, prevention and repair in one little ingredient. There are many other exciting new products that I could cover, but I’ll have to save them for another anti aging skin care guide.
