Makeup Lessons .The composition of cosmetic products

Let's see what there is in cosmetic products.To do this, we need to know that our skin contains collagen and elastin fibers, which tone it and provide elasticity.With age, the action of enzymes, these fibers are gradually destroyed. Vitamin A (retinol) - promotes the growth and renewal of skin cells, maintains the elasticity and wrinkles.The human body gets vitamin A from foods, but with age it is absorbed worse.Therefore, the main task of a cream with a high content of Vitamin A is necessary to provide additional vitamin received.

Vitamin C - firstly, is an excellent antioxidant, and secondly, he is able to influence the deeper layers of skin, allowing collagen.The only disadvantage of vitamin C is its instability, and therefore, creams, in which it is contained, have a very limited shelf life.

fruit acids - enhances the skin's natural regeneration process, frees the epidermis from dead cells, makes the skin soft and fresh, stimulates the action of moisturizing and whitening ingredients.Glycolic

acid is a fruit - it is an extract from sugar cane, lemon - an extract of lemon and milk - extract of blueberry.

Hyaluronic acid - the ability to hold water, many times exceeding its own weight.That is why not do almost any moisturizer without hyaluronic acid.

Ceramides - these substances are introduced into the cream to enhance intercellular communication.As a result, significantly reduces the evaporation of moisture from the skin, which slows down the formation of wrinkles.

liposomes, nanospheres, nanocapsules - despite the different names, they all perform the same function - to deliver active substances to the deepest layers of the epidermis and dermis even.Liposomes used in the presence of active ingredients in a cream, as nanospheres and nanocapsules transferred oily substance.

Triclosan - universal antimicrobial agent with broad spectrum of action.Triclosan is resistant to all ingredients used in solid and liquid soaps, so it is the basic direction of use.Besides liquid soap triclosan are introduced into gels for washing Triclosan effectively fights plaque and gingival microorganisms, so it is introduced in toothpastes and mouthwashes

Fats - soften skin, make up for lost when washing natural lubrication.Olive, corn or cocoa butter to a cream - a good sign, evidence of its genuineness.But isopropyl myristate, butyl steriat, tsetiolan - synthetic fat substitutes, which are part of the majority of imported creams.

The composition also includes any cream textural agents , allowing to maintain the consistency of a cream (for example, beeswax, stearin) and preservatives.Unfortunately, without them we can not do almost no one cream.Oddly enough, the most secure means mainly on artificial basis.The more cream useful additives, the faster it "spoiled": natural oils can become rancid, and then organic substances are breeding ground for microorganisms.In addition, a high concentration of natural ingredients - honey, extracts of plants and fruits - can often cause allergic reactions.

fragrances - perfume that is "interrupted" is not a very attractive scent of natural raw materials.
