Wow…talk about a jaw dropper! I saw a commercial on TV the other evening that was advertising their product as one of the best skin creams on the market…especially when compared to a leading brand that cost over $300.00. I couldn’t believe my ears! If you are willing to pay that much for a skin care product, exactly what’s in it for you? I mean that literally. What’s in it?
If you take a look at the ingredients of products that promote themselves as the best skin creams you are likely to find a list of synthetic chemicals such as mineral oil, parabens, dioxanes, alcohol and fragrances. These products feel creamy, smell good and last a long time on your shelf. You may even see improvement in the fine lines and wrinkles on your skin.
However, charging $300.00 for a product containing these artificial substances is really taking advantage of the consumer’s desire to look young and beautiful. Companies use these ingredients precisely because they are CHEAP. And the improvement you see in your appearance is just a temporary “filler” effect of your lines and wrinkles. Much like the spackle you use to fill in holes a wall. If you wash the cream off your face, or the spackle off the wall, the damage is still there. And with prolonged use, you take the risk of inflicting more damage on your skin.
I don’t know about you, but in my opinion, the best skin creams should work to treat and repair the damage on my skin. I have found that the best natural skin care creams cost substantially less than $300.00 and contain ingredients that are actually good for the skin. These natural ingredients work with your skin’s own ability to correct the damage from the inside out. When you see improvement in your appearance, its a true improvement.
Instead of rubbing potentially harmful chemicals on your skin, you can apply cream that contains natural oils, vitamins and enzymes that will moisturize your skin and nourish your cells so that they’re able to produce their own collagen and elastins. The best natural skin care cream will not contain collagen. You’re skin cells cannot absorb the collagen molecules rubbed into the skin. These molecules are too large. Your body must produce its own collagen in order to have the firming effect you’re seeking. The best natural skin care cream promotes this collagen production.
If you are willing to do a little research (label reading) into the best natural skin care cream, what’s in it for you? Natural, healthy ingredients that will have a natural, healthy effect on your skin. Your skin will thank you, and so will your wallet.
