Natural Actives that really work!

Kathy Phillips and Psychologies beauty director Emine Ali Rushton have the following to say about Natural Actives that really work:

1. “Rosehip seed oil. Contains vitamin C, beta-carotenes, bioflavonoids and hyaluronic acid. It’s great for reducing the appearance of scarrig, reducing pigmentation and regenerating skin. Studies have found it to be both anti-inflammatory and good free-radical scavenger.”  As found in clean skin gentle cleanser.

2. “Lavender. The highest quality blend is Lavandula angustifolia, which is grown in the south of France,. It heals sunburn, grazes and burns, dries spots, takes away the itch of mosquito bites and repels the insects. Research carried out by Dr David Stretch of Leicester University found that it aids sleep, too.” As found in deep sleep pillow spray.

3. “Palmarosa. Acknowledged as one of the best essential oils for anti-ageing. Some companies use palmarosa but take out the geraniol in it (to make it cheaper, or because it can sensitise reactive skins), but it’s the esters in the geraniol that are cell regenerating.”

4. “Clary Sage. ‘Almost hormone-like or steroidal in its potential,’ says aromatherapist Penny Price, Top-grade clary sage contains about 75 percent linalyl acetate, the anti-inflammatory properties of which are considered to balance the nervous system.”

5. “Roman Camomile. Among the many varieties of camomile, it is this one that the experts choose. Renowned for its anti-inflammatory effects it is therefore good in skincare as a nurturing, calming presence.” As found in deep sleep bath soak.

6. “Sodium hyaluronate. Though previously thought too large in its molecular size, recent research has proved that hyaluronic acid can penetrate the skin. Beacuase it is able to hold up to 200 times its weight in water, it can therefore hydrate all skin layers.”

7. “Larch extract. New research about this polysaccharide from North American larch trees caused excitement. It has been the subject of clinical trials, which consequently proved that it had a tightening and moisturing effect on the skin.” As found in perfect cleavage firming lotion.

8. “Stem cells. The plant stem cells of Swiss apple are the latest ‘buzz’ preparation. Patent-pending, this won an innovation prize in 2008 as best active ingredient. Rich in epigenetic factors and metabolites, it’s thought to protect the longevity of stem cells, therefore combating ageing.”

9. “Vitamin A. Retinol is a form of the antioxidant vitamin A. Retin A, the acid form of vitamin A, is effective not only in treating acne but in softening and minimising wrinkles and slowing skin ageing.” As found in no wrinkles extreme moisturiser.

10. “Probiotics. The actives in probiotic skincare are different from the probiotics used for digestive health. They tend to be derived from proteins and are designed to penetrate the epidermis, to promote skin cell health and some are designed to work on the skin surface to create a healthy skin barrier.”

* As featured in Psychologies.

    Anything with retinol thats the one proven ingredient for anti aging. Neutrogena and ROC products contain it and I’m sure there are other cheapie brands that do as well; they will usually say right on the front label. You can also get the more potent retin-a prescription from a doctor, insurance covers it, and a tube lasts a long time. The great thing about it is you can use it on your whole face and it is also good for acne and discolourations. My only warning on it is to use sunscreen on top because you’ll be more prone to burning, both with retinol and retin-a; and since your skin is already dry use it once a day.

  25. Seo Says:

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
