Age correction products are used by men and women to repair any signs of aging they may have. Whether it is the loss of body volume or a general lack of firmness, women and men alike use these products to increase their overall appearance. Women who are looking for an anti-aging solution will usually opt for a rejuvenating skin care product such as a moisturizing cream that can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
The ingredients in firming creams include proteins, vitamins, and antioxidants which have been extracted from natural sources. There are actually two different types of firming creams. One type of firming cream is composed of hyaluronic acid and natural skin conditioning ingredients such as Coenzyme Q10. There are other types of firming creams that are comprised of collagen, elastin, and Cynergy TK which were either discovered or synthesized in recent years.
Both types of products can be effective. Some people may prefer the benefits of a firming cream over the effects of a rejuvenating cream, but these days, most people prefer the former.
Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that helps to produce connective tissue, tissue formation, and tissue repair. It has been proven to help with skin elasticity and smoothness, while also promoting skin cell renewal. Because of its critical role in the formation of collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid contains both beneficial and harmful enzymes that could cause your skin to wrinkle or sag more than necessary.
Anti-wrinkle ingredients such as Cynergy TK, Functional Keratin, and Phytessence Wakame are designed to help reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid your body produces. The more hyaluronic acid your body produces, the less it is able to absorb. Therefore, the more you’ll need to use a firming cream that works with hyaluronic acid.
Elastin: Elastin is another important skin structural protein that helps your skin retain its firmness and bounce back after being stretched or squeezed. Elastin is the protein found in your skin that helps to stabilize your skin. Because plastic is naturally present in your skin, firming creams should not contain collagen and Cynergy TK. These proteins are too molecularly dense to penetrate through the skin and cause a reduction in your skin’s firmness.
Cynergy TK: This ingredient was first created by a scientist in New Zealand who made a discovery that collagen is not healthy for humans. Collagen proteins naturally attach themselves to your skin’s surface and prevent skin from further damage. When you use a firming cream that contains Cynergy TK, your skin will not be able to form collagen protein bonds, thus increasing your need for a firming cream that increases collagen levels.
Instead of relying on cream that consists of harmful chemicals and synthetic substances, look for ingredients that are healthier for your skin. Natural ingredients are the safest and best way to accomplish the goals you have for your skin.
