Guide to Choose a Good Skin Care Cream

What if in your dream and look yourself in the mirror to find out that skin on your face is sagging, dry & wrinkled? Don’t panic it’s just a dream you might not realize today but as years go by and we grow old the immunity of our body decreases. Our body naturally starts producing less of required proteins and oils.

Dry Skin, Wrinkles and Sagging Skin are most common issues that people face. Let’s see what the root cause is for each of them.

The outer layer of our skin is called Epidermis and provides a barrier to the external environment. The cells of Epidermis; keratinocytes produce keratin and helps in developing a tough outer shell. These eventually flake out from the outer skin. As we grow old our epidermal cells become thin and less sticky this makes our skin look thinner. Skin also loses its capacity to retain moisture thus leading to a dry skin.

The middle layer of our skin is called Dermis. It consists of various types of connective tissue like collagen, elastin and proteins called glycosaminoglycans giving the skin its strength, elasticity or spring. With time our body produces less collagen and elastin, this causes our skin to lose its strength and elasticity that eventually leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. Now that we have understood what is the root cause for dry skin and wrinkles it will be very easy for us to choose a good and effective skin care cream that can help fight these signs of aging.

Here is a list of ingredients that one should look while selecting a good skin care product.

Avocado Oil
It’s a natural substance that increases the collagen content in the skin. It helps moisturizing the skin deeply and is highly nutritious also. It nourishes the skin with vitamins A, D and E and many essential proteins. Cynergy TK: It’s an active keratin that has been proven to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin.

Substances like CoenzymeQ10 and Phytessence Wakame are potent antioxidants that fight the free radicals and help in avoiding fine lines and wrinkles. With this information in hand I am sure that you will be able to select the best skin care cream available in the market and reverse the aging clock of your skin.
