6 Wonder Ingredients For Flawless Skin

I have compiled a list of 6 wonder ingredients in skin care and their benefits. This is ONLY a summary of information sufficient to give you an understanding of what your skin might need. The goal, as always, is to make you able to have the skin you always wanted NOW and maintain it for life.

Knowing Your Way To Perfect Skin

* A simple but VERY powerful ingredient in skin care is the blueberry. Many skin care products use it as an ACTIVE ingredient as it contains: antioxidants, reversing skin damage or better yet PREVENTING it. My choice? The super-fruit Eminence Blueberry Soy Cleanser.

*Called “liquid gold” by many in the industry, Argan Oil, is one of the rarest oils in the world. Extracted by centuries old tradition it contains VERY high levels of antioxidants, truly age-defying and restorative for the skin. An additional benefit is that it naturally defends against UV rays. My choice, ILA Face Oil.

*”Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one.” (Ancient Chinese Proverb). The great results of Green Tea have been well documented: powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, rejuvenating sagging skin. My favorite? Intraceutical serum infused with pure oxygen like the Oxygen Purifying Facial, Triple Crown and other services.

*Vitamin C as an ACTIVE ingredient in skin care products will BOOST Collagen, protect the skin from the sun by neutralizing free radicals and will soften wrinkles and brighten the skin. Two of my favorites are: Phyt’s Multivita serum and Eminence Couperouse C serum.

*For any girl with ANY skin problem that wants fast results, I serve chlorophyll as an ACTIVE ingredient. It restores health to damaged skin quickly, eliminates free radicals and restores a youthful vibrancy to your face. My favorite, Phyt’s Serum Reviderm.

*Hylaronic Acid is nature’s lubricant. It plays an important role in the way your skin LOOKS, FEELS and functions. Hyaluronic acid provides volume, helping to contribute to the skin’s overall appearance. My Favorites, in my O2 infused serum and Lavere Solution Power Glamour Serum.

Its hard to know what are the ACTIVE ingredients in a skin care product unless you ask the manufacturer and then do research that verifies their claim. I can help you with that if you are interested, I will be more than glad to help you.
