Why is it Important to Switch to Natural Skin Care Products?

Leave a comment

Skin is your body’s largest organ providing an expansive surface where chemicals can be absorbed into your body.  We may tend to think of our skin as impermeable, but it breathes and absorbs the substances it comes in contact with.

Chemicals pass right through our skin, entering the bloodstream within a matter of minutes.   In fact, our skin provides a very efficient delivery system for chemicals to enter the body.  Nicotine and birth control patches are effective because their ingredients pass easily through skin right into the bloodstream. Unfortunately our skin also absorbs toxic chemicals commonly found in personal care products. That’s why you should switch to natural skin care products.

If you’re surprised to learn that toxins in your products enter your body through the skin, just think about the days when people were unaware of the dangers of smoking.  It’s unfortunate that our awareness of the toxic chemicals lurking in our personal care products is just as outdated.   Most of us don’t realize how many harmful chemical toxins we’re exposed to on a daily basis.

Because the list is so extensive, we’re simply going to focus on skin care products.  Admittedly, it can be daunting trying to figure out which products don’t contain carcinogenic impurities, hormone disrupters, estrogen-mimicking agents, agents linked to birth defects and DNA mutations, immune system toxins, thyroid disrupters, sensitizers, allergens and irritants.  But it’s worth the effort.

First and foremost, you should always TAKE THE TIME to read a product’s ENTIRE ingredient list before buying it.  Keep your eye out for the following ingredients:

THE PARABEN FAMILY: Butylparaben, propylparaben and methylparaben are some of the most common parabens used in cosmetics. Other chemicals in this class generally have “paraben” in their names (isobutylparaben, ethylparaben, etc.).

BUTYLPARABEN is one of the most commonplace bactericidal/fungicidal additives used in cosmetics. There is strong evidence that this preservative causes skin toxicity, reproductive toxicity, and developmental toxicity while interfering with gene expression.  In fact, the entire paraben family has come under scrutiny due to a study reporting low concentrations of parabens in breast tumors.  Parabens mimic estrogen and can act as potential hormone (endocrine system) disruptors.(synonyms: Benzoic Acid, 4-Hydroxy-, Butyl Ester; Butyl 4-Hydroxybenzoate; Butyl P-Hydroxybenzoate; Butyl P-Hydroxy Benzoate; Butyl Parahydroxybenzoate; Parahydroxybenzoate Ester; Butylparaben, Potassium Salt; Benzoic Acid, 4-Hydroxy-, Butyl Ester, Sodium Salt; Butylparaben, Sodium Salt; 4-Hydroxybenzoic Acid, Butyl Ester, Sodium Salt; Butyl Ester Benzoic Acid, 4-Hydroxy-).

PROPYLPARABEN has demonstrated evidence of skin, reproductive and developmental toxicity as well as being toxic to wildlife and the environment. (synonyms: Propylparaben, Potassium Salt; Benzoic Acid, 4-Hydroxy-, Propyl Ester; 4-Hydroxybenzoic Acid, Propyl Ester; Propyl P-Hydroxybenzoate; Propyl Parahydroxybenzoate; Benzoic Acid, 4-Hydroxy-, Propyl Ester, Sodium Salt; 4-Hydroxybenzoic Acid, Propyl Ester, Sodium Salt; Propyl P-Hydroxybenzoate Sodium Salt; Propylparaben, Sodium Salt; Potassium Salt Propylparaben; Propyl Ester Benzoic Acid, 4-Hydroxy).

METHYLPARABEN shows strong evidence of skin toxicity while causing irritation and sensitivity.  It affects the respiratory, brain and nervous systems while interfering with gene expression.  In vitro tests have shown cellular mutation.  Studies also indicate that when methylparaben is applied to the skin, it can react with Ultraviolet rays leading to increased skin aging and DNA damage. (synonyms: Benzoic Acid, 4-Hydroxy-, Methyl Ester; P-Carbomryhoxyphenol; 4-Hydroxybenzoic Acid, Methyl Ester; P-Methoxycarbonylphenol; Methyl 4-Hydroxybenzoate; Methyl P-Hydroxybenzoate; Methyl Parahydroxybenzoate; Benzoic Acid, 4-Hydroxy-, Methyl Ester, Potassium Salt; 4-Hydroxybenzoic Acid, Methyl Ester, Potassium Salt; Methyl P-Hydroxybenzoate Potassium Salt; Methylparaben, Potassium Salt).

MINERAL OIL is a liquid by-product derived from petroleum distillation.  It leaves a plastic-like coating which clogs pores and interferes with the skin’s ability to release toxins.  It has been linked to premature aging and skin irritation. Tests have also shown that mineral oil derivatives can be contaminated with cancer causing PAH’s (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons).  (synonyms: Deobase; Heavy Mineral Oil; Light Mineral Oil; Liquid Paraffin; Liquid Petrolatum; Paraffin Oil; Paraffin Oils; Paraffinum Liquidum; Prolatum Oil; White Mineral Oil, Petroleum; Petroleum White Mineral Oil).

GLYCEROL MONOSTEARATE GMS is a skin irritant that causes systemic toxicity to organs. It enhances skin penetration enabling it to reach deep into the epidermis potentially bringing other chemicals with it.

BHA (Butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (Butylated hydroxytoluene) are used in cosmetic products as well as in embalming fluid and as fuel additives.  There is strong evidence that they are skin irritants that cause skin toxicity as well as carcinogenicity.  Not only do they disrupt the Endocrine system, animal testing has found that they cause brain, nervous system and reproductive defects. (synonyms: Antioxyne B; Antrancine 12; Eec No. E320; Embanox; Nipantiox 1-F; Protex; Sustane 1-F; Tenox Bha), (synonyms: DBPC; Advastab 401; Agidol; Agidol 1; Alkofen BP; Antioxidant 29; Antioxidant 30; Antioxidant 4; Antioxidant 4k; Antioxidant Kb; Antrancine 8)

PROPYLENE GLYCOL is a powerful petroleum-based chemical related to PEGs that must be handled wearing full body gear because it absorbs quickly into the skin.  It’s a strong irritant that can cause skin allergies as well as damage to the brain, liver and kidneys.  Recent in vitro tests have also shown cellular mutation. (synonyms: 1,2-Dihydroxypropane; 2-Hydroxypropanol; Methylethyl Glycol; 1,2-Propanediol; Propane-1,2-Diol; 1,2-Dihydroxypropane; 1,2-Propylene Glycol; 1,2-Propylenglykol (German) ; Alpha-Propyleneglycol; Dowfrost; Methylethylene Glycol).

PEGs such as POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL (PEG-7) and DISTEARATE 150-PEG (synonyms: Polyethylene Glycol 6000 Distearate; Polyoxyethylene (150) Distearate) can contain potential toxic impurities such as ethylene oxide (a known human carcinogen) and 1,4-dioxane (a possible human carcinogen). They can irritate the eyes and respiratory tract while can causing damage to the central nervous system, liver and kidneys. PEGs have poisonous toxicity if applied to damaged skin. Their ability to penetrate skin and be absorbed into the body while assisting other chemicals to be absorbed is reason for concern.

SORBITAN LAURATE (PEG-80 SORBITAN LAURATE) is a skin toxin and irritant known to cause cancer, endocrine system disruption and gastrointestinal effects. (synonyms: Polyethylene Glycol (80) Sorbitan Monolaurate; Polyoxyethylene (80) Sorbitan Monolaurate; Sorbitan, Monododecanoate, Poly (Oxy1,2ethanediyl) Derivs.; Armotan Pml-20; Capmul; Dxewmulse Poe-Sml; Emsorb 6915; Glycosperse L-20; Glycosperse L-20x; Hodag Psml-20; Liposorb L-20)

CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA is an industrial strength chemical salt made from formaldehyde, sodium cayanide, and ethylenediamine that’s used to separate heavy metals from dyes and other substances. It’s widely used in skin and personal care products. (synonyms: Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, Acetic Acid, (Ethylenedinitrilo) Tetra-, Disodium Salt; Disodium Edetate; Disodium N,N’-1,2-Ethanediylbis [N- (Carboxymethyl) Glycine] ; Disodium Ethylenediaminetetraacetate; Edetate Disodium; Disodium Salt Acetic Acid, (Ethylenedinitrilo) Tetra-; (Ethylenedinitrilo) Tetra- Disodium Salt Acetic Acid; N,N’-1,2-Ethanediylbis [N- (Carboxymethyl ) – Disodium Salt Glycine; Disodium Dihydrogen Ethylenediaminetetraacetate; Glycine, N,N 1,2ethanediylbis [N (Carboxymethyl) , Disodiumsalt; N,N’-1,2-Ethanediylbis [N- (Carboxymethyl) Glycine] Disodium Salt).

SILICONE OILis a chemically derived product that can block pores, irritate skin, cause breakouts and allergic reactions.  Some silicones have been classified as endocrine disruptors based on evidence that they interfere with human hormone function as well as being possible reproductive toxicants that may impair human fertility. (synonyms: Siloxanes And Silicones, Me Ph,Dimethicone, methicone )

PHTHALATES (DIBUTYL PHTHALATE) are plasticizers often used in the cosmetic industry to hold color and scents.  They are often added to fragrances (trade secrets) without disclosure to consumers. Because fragrance occurs in nearly every conceivable product, including lotions, soaps, cleansers, hair care products, detergents and air fresheners to shower curtains and soft plastic toys, phthalates are common.  There is an association between phthalate exposure and endocrine disruption leading to development of breast cancer.  Phthalates have also been linked to obesity and resistance to insulin, a precursor to Type II diabetes. (synonyms: DEP – diethylphthalate (DEP), DBP – dibutlyphthalate, DMP – dimethylphthalate, and BBP – butyl benzylphthalate)

FRAGRANCES (PARFUM) can contain hundreds of different chemicals including phthalates and parabens causing a variety of symptoms including headaches, rash, dizziness and skin irritation. Cosmetic companies don’t have to list what is in their fragrances.  Many ingredients are chemically-based, neurotoxin, and allergenic.

DEA-related ingredients (COCAMIDE DEA, TEA & MEA)  Repeated use of DEA-based detergents has resulted in a major increase in the incidence of liver and kidney cancer. These amines have been found to be carcinogenic and are restricted in Europe. (synonyms: diethanolamine, triethanolamine, and monethanolamine)

SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE (SLS) is a known skin irritant that dries out skin and damages the immune system while containing endocrine disruptors and estrogen mimics.  It may be contaminated with measurable amounts of cancer causing ethylene oxide and 1,4-dioxane. (synonyms: Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate; Sulfuric Acid, Monododecyl Ester, Sodium Salt; Sodium Salt Sulfuric Acid, Monododecyl Ester; Monododecyl Ester Sodium Salt Sulfuric Acid; Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Sodium Lauryl Sulfate; Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate; Sulfuric Acid Monododecyl Ester Sodium Salt; Ai3-00356; Akyposal Sds; Aquarex Me; Aquarex Methyl)

TRICLOSAN is a preservative and anti-bacterial agent that can pass through skin.  It is suspected of interfering with hormone function (endocrine disruption). (synonyms: 5-Chloro-2- (2,4-Dichlorophenoxy) Phenol; Phenol, 5-Chloro-2- (2,4-Dichlorophenoxy) -; 2,4,4′-Trichloro-2′-Hydroxy Diphenyl Ether; 5-Chloro-2- (2,4-Dichlorophenoxy) – Phenol; Phenol, 5chloro2 (2,4dichlorophenoxy) ; 2,4,4′-Trichloro-2′-Hydroxydiphenyl Ether; 5-Chloro-2- (2,4-Dichlorophenoxy) Phenol; Ch 3565; Irgasan; Irgasan Dp300; Phenol, 5-Chloro-2- (2,4-Dichlorophenoxy) – )

IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA AND DIAZOLIDINYL UREA are commonly used preservatives. Their main ingredient is formaldehyde which is used for preserving dead bodies.  It is hazardous to human health. (synonyms: T N,N”-Methylenebis [N’- [1- (Hydroxymethyl) -2,5-Dioxo-4-Imidazolidinyl] Urea] ; Urea, N,N”-Methylenebis [N’- [1- (Hydroxymethyl) -2,5-Dioxo-4-Imidazolidinyl] -; N,N”-Methylenebis [N’- [3- (Hydroxymethyl) -2,5-Dioxoimidazolidin-4-Yl] Urea] ; Urea, N,N Methylenebis [N [3 (Hydroxymethyl) 2,5dioxo4imidazolidinyl] ; Germall 115; Methanebis (N,N’- (5-Ureido-2,4-Diketotetrahydroimidazole) -N,N-Dimethylol) ; N,N”-Methylenebis (N’- (1- (Hydroxymethyl) -2,5-Dioxo-4-Imidazolidinyl) Urea)

Other formaldehyde releasing agents such as DMDM hydantoin, methenamine, quaternium-15, and sodium hydroxymethylglycinate as well as aluminum salts, lead and mercury should be avoided in skin care products.

What an exhausting list of ingredients to remember!  But reducing your daily exposure to known toxins and irritants is well worth the effort.

There is good news though.  Truly safe, effective and genuinely natural skin care products are available. They offer healthy alternatives to the ocean of toxic skin care products that dominate the market.

Companies like Faiza Cosmétiques from Montreal provide a great solution because maintaining health and safety are part of their philosophy. They produce an exceptional line of nontoxic natural anti-aging skin care products that’s completely safe to use yet highly effective.  In fact, Faiza Cosmetiques’ advanced formulas are made entirely from plants.

How to Choose the Safest and Most Effective Anti-Aging Skin Care Products

Staying hydrated, a good diet, exercise, plenty of sleep, limiting sun exposure and an overall healthy lifestyle will all help keep you looking young.  Having the right skin care products will also make a huge difference and can make you look healthier and years younger.

The challenge is how to find products that are both safe to use and effective at rejuvenating our skin.  Unfortunately, we’re bombarded with so much marketing material that it’s hard for a normal person to sift through it all. Our constant overexposure to fancy advertising campaigns and glossy pictures has done little to educate us.  In fact most of us know very little about the products and ingredients we apply to our skin.

It’s definitely worthwhile to learn more about what you’re using.  Being informed not only helps you determine if your products are safe, it gives also you valuable insight into their effectiveness.  However, learning about what’s in your products can be a real eye opener. One of the most shocking revelations is that even in 2011, there are lots of dangerous chemicals commonly used in personal care products.

We know that formaldehyde is a carcinogen, parabens have been found in breast tumor samples, and petroleum based skin care ingredients have been shown to be contaminated with carcinogenic impurities. Aluminum salts, sulfates, PEGs, artificial dyes and fragrances are also under fire.  Yet all of these ingredients are still being used in personal care products.

It’s also surprising to learn that fragrances are considered trade secrets so their actual ingredients don’t even have to be listed.  Keep that in mind the next time you see the word “fragrance” on the list of ingredients. How are we supposed to know if a product is actually safe when we can’t even find out what’s in it?  It’s really unsettling because manufacturers put fragrance in practically everything.

The first step to finding great skin care products is narrowing down your choices by avoiding anything on the long list of controversial chemical and petroleum ingredients.  Great products should never pollute your body or threaten your health.  That’s why people are drawn natural skin care products. Just make sure your healthy choice really is “natural” by checking the full list of ingredients and not just the front label.  That’s because many products are labeled “natural” even though they only contain a token amount of natural ingredients.  Their formulas often contain synthetic petroleum ingredients and/or controversial chemical preservatives like parabens or PEGs.  Once you start checking your product’s ingredient list for toxins, you’ll be empowered to make better choices.

While avoiding controversial preservatives like parabens, sulfates and PEGs helps insure your safety, it’s equally important to make sure that your products do contain specialized nontoxic anti-microbial agents.  That’s because dangerous bacteria, mold and yeast in personal care products can prove even more dangerous than controversial chemical ingredients.  These biological threats can flourish in untreated products causing serious skin problems or worse. Natural beauty creams formulated with no protection will have a short shelf life and can pose a major health risk. Like produce, they need to be used when fresh but should be kept in the refrigerator and discarded before spoiling.

To protect your health, make sure any formulas you apply to your skin are protected with nontoxic agents that have been specially designed to preserve natural products.  Conscientious skin care companies ensure the safety of their products by using these safe and effective alternatives to commonly used preservatives.  Good products should be safe on all levels as well as easy and practical to use.

One company using these specially designed anti-microbial agents to protect their Botanical Anti-Aging Skin Care System is Faiza Cosmetiques from Montreal.  Their natural products are fully protected and have all successfully passed the official “Laboratory Challenge Test” which ensures product safety and an extended shelf-life.  Faiza Cosmetiques is a great find because their Advanced Anti-Aging Skin Care System is formulated from rare botanicals without any synthetic or petrochemical ingredients.  In fact, a video on their website shows just how many different high performing plant species they actually use.

Having the tools to determine whether or not a product is as “natural” as the claim on the front label can be very empowering.  Reading labels and learning about ingredients can even give you some insight into a natural skin care product’s effectiveness.   After all, not all natural ingredients are the same.  They don’t all have the same properties or offer the same level of performance and protection.

Great natural skin care products should contain superior botanical ingredients with proven abilities to nourish, hydrate and protect the skin.  Some of the most outstanding natural ingredients for skin care include Shea butter, jojoba oil and rice bran oil.

Shea butter is derived from the nut of the African Shea tree.  This complex natural fat definitely excels as an excellent skin protector that thoroughly hydrates the epidermis. It gives skin perfect elasticity while nourishing it with a high proportion of unsaponifiable components (which increases its ability to moisturize and condition), vitamin A (retinol), vitamin E (tocopherol), oleic and linoleic acid. Shea butter is also able to melt at body temperature and is rapidly absorbed into the skin without feeling greasy.

Jojoba oil is an exceptional natural ingredient because it has a composition similar to that of human sebum.  This liquid wax (produced in the seed of the jojoba plant) creates a hydrating and non-greasy protective layer on the skin’s surface.  It contains vitamin E, fatty acids and phospholipids with a high proportion of unsaponifiables that play an important role in protecting and healing skin as well as in reducing transepidermal water loss.

Another superb ingredient is Rice Bran Oil which is rich in a very strong anti-oxidant called gamma-oryzanol, polyphenols, phytosterols, vitamin E, minerals, squalene, oleic, linoleic and linolenic fatty acids.  The synergy of rice bran oil’s components helps reinforce the stratum corneum improving skin’s suppleness and firmness.  Its anti-oxidant properties help prevent oxidation in the epidermis which damages and kills our cells.

All of these natural ingredients offer superior performance and effectiveness for moisturizing, protecting and healing the skin. However, for skin care products to deliver true anti-aging results, they also need to contain active ingredients. Active anti-aging ingredients are chemically active agents that produce a pharmacological altering effect on your skin. Without them, products merely hydrate skin without any effect on wrinkles, skin firmness, lift or rejuvenation.

Understanding which active ingredients are safe and actually work is another challenge. You’ve probably seen creams formulated with collagen and elastin.  The only way these products will make your skin look younger is if they also contain real active ingredients.  That’s because collagen and elastin are not active ingredients.  In fact, their molecules are too big to even penetrate skin so they just end up clogging your pores. Manufacturers only use them because it gives marketers something to talk about.

So if putting collagen and elastin in a cream doesn’t make a difference, how do you tighten your skin’s collagen and firm up your face?  Amazingly, modern cosmetic science has isolated active botanical ingredients that actually stimulate your skin’s own collagen. The newest discovery in anti-aging is the Spilanthes Acmella Flower.  An extract made from this remarkable flower has been proven to boost the natural interactions between collagen fibers and fibroblasts reinforcing the architecture of the dermis.  Basically, this means that your skin is able to tighten from within while being repaired and rejuvenated on a cellular level.

Another great active ingredient is Sodium Hyaluronate which occurs naturally in the skin. It is often used by plastic surgeons for facial injections to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and is very effective when added to formulas that are topically applied to the skin.  It’s ideal for moisturizing and essential for tissue hydration, lubrication and cellular function. Sodium Hyaluronate is unique in that it’s able to hold more water than any other natural substance which helps retain moisture in the skin. Its hydrating properties can increase smoothness, soften your skin and decrease wrinkles.

Ceramides are also highly effective active ingredients when used in skin care formulas.  They are complex lipids that are able to enrich and restructure the intercellular lipid matrix of the outermost layers of the epidermis.  This strengthens the epidermal barrier as well as your skin’s cellular cohesiveness making skin more smooth and glowing.

A specialized Lens Esculenta (lentil) seed extract also demonstrates extraordinary properties as an active agent.  This cutting edge ingredient has been proven to decrease sebum production, reduce pore size and increase collagen and keratinocyte production.  Who knew about the power of the lentil? Amazing.

For the safest and most effective skin care, look for nontoxic products that combine the very best natural ingredients with powerful active botanical ingredients.  They will produce the results we all want for younger, healthier looking skin without posing a health risk.  Researching who makes the best products will lead you to health and safety conscious companies like Faiza Cosmetiques.  Their products are free of controversial chemical ingredients and are formulated with the very finest and safest botanical ingredients.  The best part is that their advanced Anti-Aging Skin Care System contains ALL of the amazing natural ingredients and cutting edge active botanical agents listed above. That’s why Faiza Cosmetiques’ clients are able to boast about amazing results like younger looking, moisturized skin, improved complexion and a lifted reshaped face while still feeling secure about their well-being.

This means that skin is truly repaired and rejuvenated on a cellular level.

Specialists in targeted anti-aging solutions, they are based in Montreal (known as the Paris of North America) and their name is pronounced “Fiza Cosmayteek”. Company Founder and President Faiza Errazi always expressed a deep interest in maintaining healthy, younger looking skin that was heightened during her many years working for a well known Cosmetics Company. Her passion eventually led her to develop her own products using the safest and most effective ingredients and discoveries from Science and Nature. Of course being the daughter of an internationally renowned scientist didn’t hurt. It inspired Faiza and taught her to respect Science and its ability to improve the lives of everyday people. But she didn’t grow up in a science lab. In fact she was lucky enough to spend her childhood years surrounded by the rich natural beauty of the Mediterranean where she developed a strong fascination and respect for Nature, its mysteries and the power of plants.

Once she decided to create something better than the products currently available, Faiza knew the secret to great skin would be found by studying the unique properties and abilities of plants. After extensive research and testing, she finally achieved her dream of helping others by combining the extraordinary forces of Nature with the latest developments in Cosmetic Science to promote beautiful, healthy, younger looking skin.

However, Faiza Cosmetiques is not solely about giving clients great looking skin. Respecting and maintaining overall health and wellness are equally as important. A strong focus on honesty, integrity, personal values and well-being is why none of their products are formulated with controversial ingredients like Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances and Dyes, Petrochemicals, PEGs or Aluminum salts. No testing is done on animals either.

How a Combination of the Right Anti-Aging Skin Care Products and Targeted Facial Exercises Can Get Rid of a Sagging Turkey Neck:

Combining the power of Faiza Cosmetiques’ unique botanical anti-aging formulas with the proper facial exercise techniques can produce miraculous results to improve a sagging neck.

A less than flattering neck line truly is a telltale sign of aging.  As we get older, this is one of the areas that gives away our real age, even if the rest of our face still looks young.  For some people the only solution might be surgery.  It really depends on the severity of the problem.  That being said, anyone thinking about a facelift should at least try some non-surgical alternatives before going under the knife.

Tightening the right muscles and improving collagen performance can transform an aging saggy face without even visiting a plastic surgeon.  Products and exercises that target specific areas of the face can have a huge impact on our appearance.  It is definitely worthwhile to explore this option first.

Cosmetic surgery has real risks and results are not always pretty.  Just take a good look at some of the unnatural faces nowadays.  We never used to see such strange facial features before people started overdoing cosmetic surgery and treatments.  Most people want to look better not weirder.  Of course there is some good cosmetic surgery being done, but when it’s bad, it’s really bad.

For those of us not ready or interested in surgery, how do we improve our aging necks?

First and foremost, it’s essential to find the right anti-aging skin care products.  Natural products with active anti-aging ingredients are recommended because their ingredients are better recognized and accepted by the skin.  Synthetic and petroleum based products can block pores by creating an impermeable film that gets in the way of skin breathing properly and receiving oxygen. On top of that, chemical agents used in the majority of non-natural products are quite controversial and medical experts question their effects on our overall health.

One natural botanical skin care line that is free of controversial chemicals and absolutely loaded with active anti-aging ingredients is Faiza Cosmetiques from Montreal.  Their skin care line is specially designed to improve the signs of aging by targeting wrinkles and a sagging face.  In fact, their formulas have special active ingredients that stimulate the skin’s own collagen to tighten, thus lifting the face.  Additionally, their products moisturize deep into the epidermis, reinforce Keratin and protect skin with powerful antioxidants.

While a great anti-aging skin care line like Faiza Cosmetiques will effectively diminish wrinkles, soften,moisturize and tighten skin while stimulating collagen, you will still have to do some exercises if you want to improve muscle tone under your chin.  The good news is that the combined effects of Faiza anti-aging products with exercise will take years off your face.

Before we discuss how to tone up facial muscles it is important to mention that not all facial exercises are good for the skin nor do they all produce desirable results.  Anything that stretches skin will create deeper lines and it is absolutely essential that skin stays moisturized with good

products. The tiny muscles in the face should not be overworked either.  Moderation is key and a gentle approach is best.  Beware of some facial exercise techniques because they tend to build up the muscles in the jowl area and we don’t want that.  Targeted exercises and specialized anti-aging formulas will give the results we seek.

By properly targeting the right muscles and avoiding overstretching the skin, muscle tone in the neck can be improved.  This will tighten up that turkey neck even more.   Start by lifting your chin all the way up.  Push your jaw forward so your bottom teeth are projecting out further than your top row of teeth.   You should feel your muscles stretching.  Hold this position and count to 10.  Slowly lower your chin a few inches and then lift it back up again. Repeat this exercise 20 times remembering to use slow movements while maintaining the stretch of your muscles.  Use straight up and down movements without turning your head.  Make sure not to tighten the muscles near the jowls by doing anything with your mouth because this will only make that area more pronounced.  Let your head movement do all the work keeping your jaw projected. After 20 cycles, lower your chin a bit further than before and then hold to relax and release the muscles.  Lift your chin all the way up again and hold for 10 seconds at the highest position.  Next, slowly lower your head and repeat the slow head lifts.

This specific exercise combined with the powerful anti-aging active ingredients in Faiza Cosmetiques’ formulas will really tighten up your sagging neck.  You may have to put in a bit of effort to do the exercises but you will not have to endure the pain and risk of infection from cosmetic surgery. Best of all, you will still look like yourself, just better.

Decoding the mystery and hype of skin care: What actually makes a great anti-aging skin care product?

The basics: A skin cream is just an emulsion. It will moisturize your skin but your wrinkles will not diminish, the firmness and tightness of your facial skin will not change and your complexion will not improve.

Many emulsions are made with petroleum or a synthetic base and will block the skin’s pores. Most people know this by now, yet it is amazing that in 2011 so many products are still made this way. The key reason is price. They are cheap and will create a protective barrier over the skin, but not the type of barrier our skin needs. Unfortunately their synthetic molecules are not readily accepted by the body, can clog pores, cause irritation and even contaminate our vital organs. On top of that, there is a lot of controversy about these ingredients being linked to various cancers.

Botanical based emulsions are able to allow the skin to breathe. After all, they come from living, breathing plants and not from deep in the ground. But not all botanical based emulsions are equal. Certain key botanical ingredients stand out among others as true stars and have been proven to offer superior protection and hydration.

For any emulsion to offer anti-aging results it must contain key active ingredients. Research has proven how certain active botanical ingredients can produce tangible results in our quest for great skin. We are now able to target specific areas and correct the signs of aging.

For consumers who understand these basic principles, confusion can still come when they read labels for active ingredients. Unfortunately, putting one single drop of an agent into a huge vat of synthetic emulsion still allows it to be listed as an active ingredient. Active ingredients are expensive and clearly some products are offering more than others. Moreover, certain active ingredients give better results.

So does paying a lot or buying a product because it is listed as “organic” a guarantee that it will work? Sometimes products are just a lot of marketing hype. That being said, it is also important to keep in mind that when the price of a product seems too low, it is wise to remember the expression “You might not always get what you pay for, but you never get what you don’t pay for.”
