What if I told you that finding the best skincare products is very, very simple?
Would you believe me? Well, they are simple to find, because to know what’s best you just have to know what ingredients are effective, which ones are toxic (and a lot of so-called skin “care” products have harmful, synthetic chemicals in them) and find a brand that puts generous amounts of active ingredients into the tube. At a price you want to pay. Dr Rashel Official Store
Really, the best skincare is that simple to find.
Here’s my list of what ingredients should be in the tube.
For a start, CynergyTK.
This is a near-miraculous compound and is definitely top of my list for the best skincare ingredients. Rigorous clinical trials have shown it definitely reduces fine lines and wrinkles. And it will make skin glowing, soft and firm to touch. Which is just what everyone one of us wants.
Then there is Nanobelle CoenzymeQ10.
Again, this is a leading ingredient and you should consider it for your best skincare products pick. This is the compound that seeps down through seven layers of your skin and gives a significant anti-wrinkle effect.
Thirdly, Phytessence Wakame, an extract from a special Japanese sea weed.
There is no doubt that this keeps skin elastic and smooth. Use it, and your skin will look younger. No questions.
Labels and company web sites these days are full of clear, detailed product information. Read them.
As for the ingredients you need to avoid, this is what I recommend.
No fragrances, allergens or parabens.
You may be surprised that I would not use skincare products with fragrance. But I’m recommending this because most fragrances are chemicals and if your skin is sensitive those chemicals could stir up an allergic reaction.
Truth is skincare manufacturers with low quality ingredients often add alluring fragrances to create an impression of quality and class. Don’t’ be fooled. If a skincare product is effective, you won’t need sweet smelling extras.
The paraben ban is even more important, in my recommendation for the best skincare products. Basically they are chemical preservatives and the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry uses them a lot because they are readily available and cheap. Check the labels and you will see virtually all the big name skincare brands use them. But there is a cloud hanging over parabens because studies have found they can cause cancer, particularly breast cancer, and also interfere with estrogen levels.
Parabens might be cheap, but they are also nasty.
Just take one of them, triclosan. It’s an anti-bacterial chemical that wipes out any bacteria it comes across; so both harmful and beneficial bacteria are killed. Technically, triclosan is a pesticide. Would you put that on your face? If so, then buy Clarins because their face creams are packed with it.
So, that’s what to avoid. But you can refine your searches a step further, and start to differentiate between organic and chemical compounds where both are certified as safe.
Take glycerine. You can get it in a petroleum-based or plant-based form. Petroleum based glycerine is cheap so most skincare manufacturers use it. But would you eat a petroleum product? I doubt it. So why let it be included in your skincare products, which permeate your skin and get into your body just as food does via your digestive tract?
Another example is coenzymeQ10. Its a potential anti-oxidant so many skincare products include it. But it comes in a number of forms, qualities and some are a more effective than the rest. The one I trust is a patented nano-lipid form because it penetrates deep into the skin, where most other forms of CoQ10 just penetrate the surface skin layer. Why settle for less effective ingredients in your search for the best skincare products?
And when you’re doing your research, check out where the ingredients come from. Europe and the US remain the best sources because of the strict regulations governing the skincare industry. Personally I would be wary of buying products using ingredients from the Asia, where it is too easy to give backhanders and avoid what regulations are on the books.
Now, it has to be said skincare manufacturers almost always must use some synthetic ingredients and put their natural ingredients through some form of processing before placing it in the tube. But you can accept products where most ingredients are derived from plants, they have been processed naturally and can be ingested without causing any harm.
