Skin Care Product Focus: Moisturizers

What are moisturizers and why do we want to use them?

First and foremost, moisturizers provide a healthy balance of water and/or oil to topically hydrate skin.

Because moisturizer is applied uniformly over the entire face, it is the best place to include preventive/protective ingredients as well.

The main preventive/protective ingredients are SPF, and anti-oxidants. SPF is fundamental in preventing premature aging of the skin due to UVA/UVB damage.

Antioxidants neutralize free radicals to minimize skin surface oxidization.

Other topical corrective ingredients are alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic, lactic, citric, malic) which loosen surface dead skin cells for easier exfoliation.

Also Retinol which minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, bolster skin’s thickness and elasticity, slow the breakdown of collagen (which helps keep skin firm), and lighten brown spots caused by sun exposure. Retinol is present in my Age Defying Serum because applying it first before moisturizer allows it to go deeper, have a higher concentration and thusly more effective.

Broad Spectrum SPF 15
Sunscreens help prevent the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation from reaching the skin.

Two types of ultraviolet radiation, UVA and UVB, damage the skin, age it prematurely, and increase your risk of skin cancer.
UVB is the chief culprit behind sunburn, while UVA rays, which penetrate the skin more deeply, are associated with wrinkling, leathering, sagging, and other light-induced effects of aging (photoaging). They also exacerbate the carcinogenic effects of UVB rays, and increasingly are being seen as a cause of skin cancer on their own.

Extracts of White Tea

  • Protects critical elements of the skin’s immune system.

Pomegranate

     1. Cell Regeneration. Pomegranates help protect the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin) and helps with skin cell regeneration in the epidermis and dermis (inner layer), increasing circulation and healing the skin, aiding in tissue repair and wound healing.

     2. Sun Protection. Pomegranates have sun protective compounds that protect the skin against free radical damage, help prevent skin cancer, relieve sunburn and reduce the signs of sun damage. Pomegranate seed oil works to protect against skin cancer because of ellagic acid, a polyphenol antioxidant found in large quantities in pomegranates, which researchers have found inhibits the growth of skin tumors.

     3. Anti-Aging. Pomegranates protect against premature aging by helping reduce the signs of skin aging caused by sun damage and exposure, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Pomegranates also help prevent hyperpigmentation and age spots.

     4. Youthful Skin. Pomegranates promote smooth, firm skin by promoting collagen and elastin production and soften skin.

     5. Dry Skin. It is a great ingredient for skin care because its small molecular structure allows it to penetrates deeply into the skin. It works for most skin types, (which depends on the skin care ingredients pomegranate is combined with).

Since pomegranate oil penetrates deeply into the skin, it is effective for treating dry skin. It soothes dry, cracked and irritated skin. It contains punicic acid, an omega 5 fatty acid that hydrates and prevents moisture loss.

     6. Oily Skin/Combination Skin. Pomegranate oil even works for oily skin and the use of pomegranate have been beneficial in skin care products for acne prone skin, to combat breakouts, reduce scarring and sooth minor irritations.
