Bella Michelle Cosmeceuticals
Each year, billions of dollars are spent on skin care products. Not only women but an increasing number of men are seeking products that can address their anti-aging concerns. Today’s consumers are looking for personal care products that supply multiple benefits with minimal effort. As such, each year many new products hit the market claiming to be an "all-inclusive" way to win the race against aging.
Depending on the product’s intended purpose, skin care and cosmetic products combine different types of ingredients to treat multiple skin care issues. When you are shopping for the right products, making a choice can be confusing and this is the biggest challenge for the consumer.
Skin care and cosmetic products are created for application on the body for the purpose of cleaning and beautifying. Cosmetic pharmaceuticals, or cosmeceuticals, are active ingredients that claim to have medicinal or drug like benefits. These are topically applied products and contain ingredients that influence the biological function of the skin. There are an endless amount of ingredients claiming to be your best cure all for fighting the aging process. However, you must be careful of hidden ingredients found in some cosmetic formulations which can act as hormone disrupters, cause allergies, or severely irritate your skin.
Antioxidants like Vitamin C help neutralize free radicals and promote collagen synthesis. Lipoic acid provides potent antioxidants and inflammatory protectin and creates a healthy glow to the skin. Hyaluronic acid (one of my favorites) is a substance naturally produced by your body and a core building block of the skin. It can hold up to 1000x times its weight in water. It also stimulates the production of collagen. Folic Acid stimulates the growth of fibroblasts (cells that produce collagen and elastin). Exfoliators remove surface layers of dead skin cells to reveal younger skin and improve product penetration.
In your quest to find the perfect product, with just the right amount of ingredients, now is the best time to schedule a consultation with your skin care specialist. They can closely and professionally evaluate your skin so the proper skin care products and treatment may be suggested.
