When was the last time you bought some product based on skincare reviews and really found it to be effective? I'm not saying you can not trust these reviews; my point is the people who write them can have vested interests in promoting the products.
While there may be some genuine skincare reviews out there, the majority of them just promote the usual skin care creams you find in your neighborhood store. What's wrong with that? Let's find out.
If you pick up any common skin cream and check its ingredients, you will find that it contains some harsh chemical ingredients like Parabens, Mineral Oil, and fragrances.
Parabens, which are widely used in these products as preservatives, are actually harmful chemicals. They may save some money for the company, but you have to face the prospects of serious side effects like cancer in the long run if you keep using them.
Mineral oil is used in creams to moisturize the skin. The irony is – this chemical depletes the natural moisture of our skin over time. This makes our skin even drier than before and makes it last to damage.
Fragrances may make the skin creams more attractive, but they are chemicals too. They can cause skin allergies and irritations and would be well advised to avoid products that contain any of these dangerous chemicals.
Here's a tip – the best skincare brand may not be the one that publishes its products the most or the one whose creams are the most slickly packaged.
It may very well be the lesser known one you find by searching a bit on the internet – the one who does not spend all its money on marketing but on creating effective and safe products which are really beneficial for your skin.
To identify such a product you need to check its ingredients. Look for natural substances like Phytessence Wakame in your cream.
This Japanese sea kelp nourishes our skin with many minerals and vitamins and keeps it healthy. It also keeps the skin safe from the damage caused by the UV rays which lead to the formation of age spots on it. This is one ingredient you may not find in most skincare reviews, but is actually a must for a healthy skin.
Cynergy TK (TM) is a natural extract derived from the wool of New Zealand sheep. It stimulates the Collagen and Elastin production in our skin significantly. These two proteins are essential for keeping our skin smooth and wrinkle free.
CoQ10 is a really effective antioxidant that protects our skin from the havoc that the free radicals found in environmental pollution cause. They attack our skin cells and break them down which leads to a wrinkled skin. CoQ10 prevents this from happening.
Now that you know how to take care of your skin, you can even write your own skincare reviews! Just do some research and include these natural ingredients in your skin care regimen. You will be surprised by the results – I guarantee it.
