The best body moisturizing cream will do much more than just moisturize.
It will also smooth rough, dry patches, tighten sagging skin, reverse the causes of fine lines and wrinkles and make your skin feel smooth, soft and glowing with health. This article explains why there’s no reason to settle for just a little more moisture.
1. First, since you want a moisturizer, get the best. There are are great natural moisturizers that are great for your skin, for example:
— Jojoba oil is unique among vegetable oils, chemically very similar to the oil produced by human skin. It has the great quality of balancing production of natural skin oils, reducing excessive oil production if you have oily skin, and yet is a wonderful moisturizer for dry skin.
— Grapeseed oil, like jojoba, creates an invisible film on your skin that keeps in moisture. It’s outstanding for repairing the skin around the eyes. Also like jojoba, it contains natural vitamin E.
— Olivem 800, made from a fraction of natural olive oil, penetrates the skin deeply, healing and hydrating it.
All of those natural wonders help heal, soften and smooth rough, dry skin as well as hydrate it.
2. Second, there are moisturizers to avoid. Most body moisturizers have mineral oil as their largest ingredient, because it’s cheap and body creams have to cover a lot of skin.
Mineral oil, also called petrolatum, paraffin wax, liquid paraffin and petroleum jelly, keeps ingredient costs down and moisturizes temporarily by coating the skin with a greasy film. It also strips the skin’s natural oils, making it dryer than ever after a short time, blocks pores, and can make your body more vulnerable to sunburn.
3. The best body moisturizers will also contain ingredients to block oxidation in the skin, reverse the causes of skin aging and increase skin cell growth. Here are a couple to look for.
— Cynergy TK is a breakthrough, containing keratin, vital to healthy skin, hair and nails, in a form the skin can easily absorb. Cynergy TK improved moisture retention by 14 percent and skin elasticity by 42 percent, both in just 18 days. In other clinical trials, it also stimulated natural growth of both collagen and elastin in the skin, increased skin cell growth by 160 percent, and reduced inflammation in the skin.
— Coenzyme Q10 in tiny particles in an emulsion with natural vitamin E, penetrates deeply into the kind and blocks oxidation damage, also boosts collagen and elastin, and is remarkably effective in reducing wrinkles. The trademarked ingredient worth looking for has the odd name Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10.
Check for some of those ingredients when you want the best body moisturizing cream.
