Time does not make us younger, sooner or later on the shelf in the bathroom or a cosmetic table there is a whole arsenal of funds designed to slow the external manifestation of aging. The causes of wrinkles are the loss of skin tone, its dryness and the negative impact of surrounding factors.
Choosing a day cream
An effective anti-wrinkle cream is required to perform several functions: moisturizing, nourishing and protecting the skin. Separation of creams for night and day is not accidental. During the day, the skin is affected by the atmosphere of the megalopolis and the sun, so the cream should contain antioxidants: tocopherol, vitamin C, green tea extract and selenium.
Provide reliable protection from the sun can only cream with a sunscreen SPF factor not lower than 15. Among the additional components can be indicated retinoids: retinyl, tretinoin, retinol, palmitate, which have a positive effect on the skin.
Nourishing the skin at night
Multifunctional night cream against wrinkles should contain vitamin A, C, E, aloe vera, jojoba oil, rose oil, peptides, amino acids, antioxidants, alpha hydro-acids.
Particular attention in the study of the composition should be given to alpha and beta hydroxy acids, which in the composition can be marked by ANA and VNA. The category of ANA-acids include apple, glycolic, mandelic acids. They have a positive effect on the skin, damaged by sunlight, reduce the depth of wrinkles and fight the dryness of the skin.
Salicylic acid – the most common BHA-acid, whose action is based on the effect of peeling, it penetrates deeper into the layers of the skin, intensively cleanses and exfoliates.
About snakes and snails
Snake venom, which is part of the cream, blocks nerve impulses that regulate the "tightening" of the skin. As a result, wrinkles are smoothed out and disappear in the shortest possible time. This substance was especially popular with those whose wrinkles are the result of active face mimicry.
The composition of the cream is a filtrate slug snails, which stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. It is noteworthy that such drugs are effective for all skin types. In addition to wrinkles are able to cope with the expanded pores and small scars.
Should I believe in advertising?
Cosmetic concerns in their advertising often focus on the content of collagen. It is worth noting that he actually is part of the creams from the category of active wrestlers with wrinkles. The skin itself produces collagen, but its external application in no way affects the improvement of the situation with wrinkles. The collagen molecule is so large that it simply can not penetrate deep layers of the skin. To ensure the penetration of collagen into the skin are only capable of injecting it.
Hyaluronic acid – an advertising course of producers. It is too large molecule and is not able to penetrate the inside of the skin. Remaining on the surface, it creates an invisible film that can clog pores.
Retinol is much less common in the composition, but it is he who stimulates the production of his own collagen skin. If you need a real devotee, an effective assistant and a fighter for the beauty and youth of the skin, look for retinol in the composition.
