Many women are asking, should I use a body cream? Is it something that I really need? Many dismiss this beauty product as an unnecessary expense. What with all the several other beauty and skincare products ranging from body lotions, hydrating lotions and moisturizing creams that can be found in the market.
There are several advantages to using a body cream, especially if it’s the right formulation, with the right ingredients that can make your skin healthier and younger looking. They serve to help keep the skin all over your body moisturized and they help restore your skin to its youth by repairing skin cells that have been damaged by too much sun exposure or even those traumatized by wounds and bites. These creams can also help restore your skin’s elasticity thus preventing saggy skin.
You can have all these benefits from using a body cream if you have chosen well. When making your choice from the thousands of beauty products out there, make sure to look for collagen content. Collagen is a substance that will help restore healthy skin by aiding in the repair and restoration of skin cells. Another helpful substance that your beauty product should contain is CoQ10 or Coenzyme Q10 and extracts or derivatives of Wakame kelp, a type of seaweed that can be found in the waters of Japan. They all have high anti-oxidant content and are all helpful in keeping our skin healthy, silky smooth and glowing all over.
At the same time, make sure that the skincare and beauty products that you use, including your body cream, also contains Vitamin E. Vitamin E has been lauded for its high anti-oxidant content. It aid in the protection of our cells by strengthening the cell membranes. It also protects our cells from potentially dangerous free radicals known to cause cancer. Vitamin E also slows down the aging of cells, including and most especially skin cells! And because Vitamin E is also known to improve blood circulation and heart function, it greatly helps in making sure that our cells are able to excrete toxins and wastes effectively as blood circulates in our body. Vitamin E can be taken orally in capsules and multivitamins. However, when applied directly on the skin, its effects can be more evident.
Now that you know which ingredients to look for when choosing the more effective beauty and skincare product in the market, you are now an empowered, informed consumer.
