So, what are the main ingredients that make up hydrating moisturizers? There are several. The first one is water, as in cold water, not hot or room temperature water. The other major ingredient is humectants, which are actually the sticky by-products of a protein structure known as Cynergy TK.
Other than water, many of the hydrating skin care products also contain the essential vitamins A, C and E. These four are essential for maintaining a healthy skin. One of the most important components to hydrate is hyaluronic acid. This substance is what gives your skin its strength.
A little known fact about hyaluronic acid is that it is extremely powerful. It has long been used to treat and repair damaged skin, but the ability to increase the level of collagen in your skin is just now being discovered. In the past, there was no way to get rid of the skin’s natural moisture all together, but this new discovery can make that possible.
Scientists have been studying hyaluronic acid for quite some time, because the more skin is covered with it, the firmer it becomes. Not only that, but research is also showing that by strengthening the skin, hyaluronic acid will help to prevent the appearance of wrinkles.
The next ingredient to consider when looking for a hydrating product is Phytessence Wakame. This Japanese sea kelp has been proven to help protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun, with an added effect of raising the level of hyaluronic acid. This ingredient is the same one that we apply to our face every morning, but was not on my list of things to add to my skin care regime.
Otherhydrating ingredients to look for are coenzyme Q10 and Natural vitamin E. Another ingredient that are really becoming popular is Cynergy TK. This particular protein is made from biotin, which is another form of Biotin. This Biotin is used by our bodies to generate the collagen and elastin in our skin needs in order to remain soft and supple.
Many of the hydrating skin care products now available will include Cynergy TK and Phytessence Wakame. Hyaluronic acid is a very important ingredient, so it is important to look for it. There are many companies who do not even use it because they simply do not know the true value of this component.
The most important thing you can do for your skin is to choose a product that includes these vital ingredients. Do not ever shy away from looking for a product that contains the word “firming” in the name. The best hydrating skin care products contain all of these ingredients, without ever including alcohol, artificial fragrances or any other artificial ingredients.
