The Plethora Of Benefits Of Anti Aging Facial CreamThe Plethora Of Benefits Of Anti Aging Facial Cream

The benefits of an anti aging facial cream or mask may be numerous. The sum of the benefits sometimes exceeds the benefits of individual compounds, if the ingredients work together in synergy. Here's a look at some that do.

Functional Keratin is an active protein extracted from sheep's wool using patented processes. In clinical studies, a 40% improvement in firmness has been noted. Peptides are believed to work in synergy with the protein to enhance results.

Peptides are similar to proteins, but they contain shorter chains of amino acids. Thus they are more easily absorbed by the skin's cells.

Numerous peptides have been studied for their benefits to the skin. Tetrapeptide-3 is one that has been shown to improve the skin's firmness, particularly on the neck. As much as a 40% improvement in firmness has been seen in some studies.

Imagine the results you would see if you used both Functional Keratin and tetrapeptide-3. Some research and development teams have imagined the results. They have included both ingredients in their company's anti aging facial masks.

Masks can be deeply hydrating or deeply cleansing, depending on the ingredients they contain. They are typically used twice a month, often on an alternating basis.

The cleansing masks pull dirt and toxins out of the pores, which reduces your risk of blemishes and makes your skin's surface smoother. The deep hydrating masks provide moisture and nourishment to the cells.

Each cell in the skin's outermost layer contains the protein keratin. One of its functions is to absorb moisture and pull it into the cell. This makes the cell plumper, which in turn makes your face firmer.

So, increased firmness and smoothness are the benefits that accompany the regular use of anti aging facial masks. Daytime moisturizers and nighttime creams can provide even more benefits if they contain nano-particles of coenzyme Q10.

Nano-particles are tiny enough to be absorbed into the deepest of the skin's layers. Coenzyme Q10 is a powerful antioxidant found naturally in practically every cell of the body.

The amount of COQ10 present in the cells decreases with age. For example, the amount present in the cells of the heart starts to decline drastically once we pass the age of 20.

The amount present in the skin is quickly depleted during sun exposure. This is one of the reasons scientists began evaluating the benefits of including COQ10 in an anti aging facial fluid. Sun exposure is one of the main causes of cellular aging, the signs of which become visible in the form of wrinkles and sagging.

If used daily for three months, a cream containing nano-particles of COQ10 may help reduce wrinkles by as much as 30%. A reduction of other signs of sun damage has been seen, including reduced roughness and dryness.

The most effective day creams and nighttime moisturizers contain COQ10 and Functional Keratin. Wrinkle reduction combined with improved firmness is equal to amazing results. Why choose an anti aging facial cream that provides only one benefit when there is so much more to be had?
