What face cream manufacturers don't want you to know

Gone are the days when a mere waxy layer of your Granny’s cold cream was considered sufficient skin care.

You look for sophisticated products that can help you achieve graceful beauty. You want something that can rejuvenate tired skin and uneven skin tone. There are plenty of products that promise you can have the skin of your dreams, but in truth, many of these claims aren’t what they seem.

SKIN 101

The skin is the largest organ in the body. Its primary job is to keep harmful things out, like dirt, bacteria, chemicals and pollutants. Because of this, its structure is designed not to absorb, but rather to repel foreign matter. This is why many basic skin creams literally sit on the surface of the skin, providing mild hydration to only the most outside layer.

As you age, your skin starts to change. What used to be tight and smooth starts to develop small folds or lines. This happens partially due to use and partially due to exposure to environmental elements. As well, as you age, your body produces less collagen.

So back to ingredients. What does what, and how does it get to where it needs to go in order to create smoother, healthier looking skin?

Retinol is an active form of the vitamin A molecule, and is a powerful exfoliant that stimulates the lower layers of skin to turn over younger cells, more often. It also increases the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen, making skin more supple and smooth.

However, the effects are limited by its inefficient penetration through the skin.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It supports the skin from the inside to keep it firm and youthful and is essential in developing new, healthy skin cells. The more collagen you produce, the smoother and tighter your skin will be. But collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the skin when applied in a cream.

DIGESTIBLE INGREDIENTS

Many topically applied ingredients are not absorbed into the skin. However, there are some effective ingredients that work particularly well when taken as supplements, including Collagen, Omegas and Vitamin C.

BEAUTY FROM WITHIN

Collagen is essential to plump and rejuvenate tired skin. As you get older, particularly after 40, your body will produce significantly less collagen which is why your skin may appear less youthful.

But now there is a drinkable collagen, Collagen Lift™ Paris, to supplement the collagen in the body. It is easily absorbed and has been clinically proven to increase collagen densities, inhibit the decrease of collagen in the skin and reduce wrinkles by up to 50%.

Supplement your diet with one ampoule of Collagen Lift™ every day and start looking younger.
