How to Choose a Natural Face Skin Cream

By: Catalina Igor

We know by now that natural products might not always contain all natural ingredients. The Food and Drug Administration has unsuccessfully attempted to regulate the use of phrases on labels such as organic, natural, hypoallergicenic, and doctor recommended. The truth is that the FDA is very inactive when it comes to the cosmetic industry unless there is an ingredient or product that is deemed dangerous. Therefore, finding out which ingredients are beneficial or detrimental to the skin is up to the consumer. Consider your skin type and learn how certain ingredients in moisturizing lotions and facial creams can affect you, in both good and bad ways.

Ingredients to Avoid

It is important to try out a few skin care products before you decide on one. This trial period allows you to test products in order to avoid potential problems and ingredients that might irritate your skin. The top three problem causing pests in skin care creams are fragrance, color and harsh preservatives. Even if you don't have sensitive skin, these additives can affect you negatively. Anyways, perfumes and dyes are never beneficial for your skin so it will always be a safer choice to opt for fragrance-free and dye-free products.

Preservatives are unfortunately a necessary evil as they are used to keep organic material from spoiling. However, there are a particular few to avoid that are known to cause allergic reactions in humans. These include formaldehyde, methylparaben and propylparaben. These, according to the Cosmetic Safe Base, are rated as having high risks for adverse reactions. Avoid these ingredients as well as aliases formalin, benzoic acid, and DMDM hyndatoin. More natural preservatives are derivatives of vitamin E and vitamin C known as tocopheryl land ascorbic acid respectively.

Creams for Dry Skin

To improve dry skin, it is important to choose a skin care product with an effective humectant. A humectant is a substance that draws water to the epidermal surface and maintains the moisture there. Some popular and effective humectants include glycerin, urea, propylene glycol, allantoin, and lanolin. Face creams for skin are also more effective with rich emollients that make your skin smooth and maintain its elasticity. Common emollients are mineral oil, dimethicone, petrolatum, and tocopheryl acetate.

Lotions for Oily Skin

Cream for faces that are oily should contain more water and less oil. Water is a natural skin conditioner and often appears as the first ingredient in many oil-free or noncomedogenic products for oily skin. Instead of rich oil based emollients, search for skin care ingredients that will not block pores. Search for moisture restoring and balancing ingredients, such as panthenol and glycerin. Acne prone skin is especially responsive to acne treatment creams that contain hydroxyl acids, such as glycolic or salicylic acids.

Special Ingredient in Skin Care Creams for All Skin Types

Scientific research has been done on a special organic ingredient extracted from brown garden snails, formally known as Helix Aspersa Muller. This natural snail serum has been proven to show amazing regenerative effects on human skin. Helix Aspersa Muller is full of antioxidants that cleanse and eliminate skin of free radicals. Additionally, this serum triggers fibroblast proliferation. Fibroblasts are those cells responsible for the creation of collagen and elastin. This ingredient also triggers in increase in glycosaminoglycans which maintain skin hydration and proteoglycans which strengthen intracellular communication. Other systems involved in the regenerative effect include the action of regulatory proteins which stimulate enzymatic activity and consequently limit the damage during wound healing and scar formation. This serum is included in particular face care creams that promise to improve rashes, signs of aging, spots, pimples, dry skin, dullness and other skin conditions. This serum has been known to be effective in healing all skin types for various different skin ailments.

Look for this ingredient in products that also contain other purely natural elements and find yourself with beautiful skin. Face skin cream with Helix Aspersa Muller are effective products that deal with numerous skin problems in natural ways. Lots of water, exercise, and a balanced diet with the consistent use of a natural Helix Aspersa Muller product is a sure way to get healthy glowing skin.
