When it comes to finding the perfect combination of ingredients to create the perfect skin care line, scientists have it all together. Nowadays, there are products available to treat nearly every skin malady known to women. There are products available to enhance, brighten, and even lift the skin. That’s what VineVera would like to talk about today in this article. Lifting skin care products have become increasingly popular due to their ability to give somewhat of a natural face-lift without going through the painful, expensive surgery. Many women find them to be an invigorating way to start the day, feeling as though their skin is given a tightened, lifted look. Vine Vera takes a look at some of the lifting skin care ingredients being found within your favorite skin care brands.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids
There are many different types of Alpha Hydroxy Acids available and included within lifting skin care products. They are naturally derived acids from plants and fruits which are harnessed for their skin firming powers. Different types of Alpha Hydroxy Acids include citric acid, glycolic acid, and lactic acid. Usually, they are incorporated into skin care products to help exfoliate the skin, which can also play an integral role in the lifting process. This occurs by helping your skin produce more collagen and elastin, which tighten, tone and firm the skin.
Peptides are essentially a form of amino acids and proteins which are responsible for helping the skin learn to repair itself, and work off of muscle memory. This means they are able to help repair crows feet, fine lines, and wrinkles. Peptides are generally an important part of any anti-aging skin care product, as well as products intended to infuse moisture into the skin, such as moisture creams. They help to moisturize the skin through their ability to bind to cells and give a youthful appearance. Many women count on their effectiveness as an alternative to expensive, painful Botox injections.
Emollients help to trap moisture into the skin and help the skin retain the moisture necessary to hydrate the skin. This is crucial for women who are in their later years in life, who seek something which can offer an added moisture barrier for their dry skin, which is often times incapable of producing moisture itself. Emollients infuse the skin with moisture, while their opposite, humectants, take away moisture. This is generally not something older women would want to opt for. Good moisturizers tend to contain a good base of emollients to help the skin become well moisturized, and help give smooth, tightened skin.
These three components combined help to make for a fantastic skin lifting product. Of course, there are many other ingredients which are involved in crafting skin care products, and a lot of time and dedication which goes into the development process as well. With breakthroughs in technology forever on the forefront, we can expect great, new products to consistently emerge using the latest technological advances in skin care. Vine Vera hopes this breakdown list of ingredients has helped you to understand the ingredient base used within your favorite products, and why they are essential to helping you achieve lifted, toned and youthful skin.
