In this anti aging skin care guide, I am going to talk about some ingredients that are found in effective anti aging skin care treatment creams and body lotions. These are not the common things that you typically see in a department store cosmetic, but they are definitely the best.
Clinical research and proven results backs up the claims made by products containing CoenzymeQ10 and natural vitamin E, but this anti aging skin care guide focuses primarily on COQ10. A special form called HE Q10 combines both antioxidants and the manufacturing process is such that the nutrients can penetrate deeply through the skin's layers.
HE Q10 when used as an anti aging skin care treatment has been shown in scientific studies to produce quite a dramatic anti-wrinkle effect. This is due to its ability to increase collagen and elastin production, by nourishing and reducing the effects of free radicals.
The typical anti aging skin care guide often suggests the use of sunscreen. Because of the controversy surrounding the use of those products, I would simply suggest that you avoid spending prolonged periods in the sun. Wear a hat to protect your face. Stay in the shade as much as possible. If you are sailing or participating in another outdoor activity, use a "sun-block" that provides protection from both UVA and UVB radiation.
Sunscreens only protect against UVA radiation, which is responsible for burning, but UVB penetrates more deeply. UVB is believed to cause more aggressive forms of cancer, as well as free radical damage that cause wrinkles. In short, anti aging skin care treatment should not contain sunscreen or an SPF rating, but many do, so shop carefully.
HE Q10 in anti aging skin care treatment is another story entirely. When researchers began to look at the effect that COQ10 had on the skin's cells, they were amazed. Apparently, no one realized that exposure to the sun dramatically decreased levels of COQ10. The nutrient performs many functions in organs throughout the human body, but no one realized the function that it performed in the body's largest organ.
