Organic Skin Care for Dry Skin
Dry skin requires special attention. The lack of lipids and moisture make this type of skin more fragile and delicate than combination or oily skin. It is very sensitive to seasonal changes and can cause irritation and tightness if it is not properly treated.
Dry skin is also susceptible to wrinkles and premature aging. However, this doesn't mean that rubbing on any skin care product will make a difference. As a matter of fact, some products can cause more damage than having used no skin care product at all. Luckily enough there is a new trend of products that helps deal with dry skin - organic skin care.
The basis behind organic skin care products is their composition. Because they are created with all natural ingredients they are thought to be healthier and less harmful than synthetic skin care products. In essence, the skin care industry has gone back to its beginnings. Several products now include herbal, fruit and vegetable extracts in their ingredients and less synthetic components.
This new trend has brought out an amazing variety of different natural ingredients and among them are two very powerful ones: Helix aspersa muller extract (animal derivative) and strawberry seed oil (fruit derivative). These natural ingredients are becoming quite popular because of their ability to treat a wide range of skin problems, including dry skin.
Helix aspersa muller extract contains natural biological glycoconjugates that functions as a biological adaptogen. An adaptogen increases the body's resistance and adaptability to stress, anxiety and fatigue. This is fundamental when we consider that dry skin is not very resistant against these assailants.
It also helps dissolve damaged skin tissues and regenerate healthy skin by promoting the proliferation of fibroblasts and supporting microcirculation in capillaries. Helix aspersa muller extract can help moisturize dry skin and keep symptoms, such as dryness, itching and irritation, under control while helping eliminate scar tissue and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Strawberry seed oil contains a high level of the anti-oxidant g-tocopherol. It is also a great source EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) namely linoleic, alpha-linoleic and oleic acid.
EFAs or essential fatty acids perform important functions within the body such as the manufacturing and reparation of cell membranes. They also have a say in how the immune system functions by regulating inflammation and encouraging the body to fight off infection.
Their low viscosity allows them to penetrate into the skin quickly. All of these factors make strawberry seed oil an ideal candidate for its inclusion in dry skin products.
Thanks to their moisturizing capacity, Helix aspersa muller extract and strawberry seed oil are essential ingredients if you want to get the best wrinkle cream for eye wrinkles or even just an effective and safe natural anti wrinkle cream.
