Natural Moisturizers that Fight Free Radicals for Firm, Younger Looking Skin

natural moisturizerA natural moisturizer will do wonders for your skin, by providing it with all of the essential nutrients that it needs.  Of the nutrients that organic compounds can provide antioxidants are the most important, as they heal the age producing damage caused by free radicals.

Free radical damage is one of the three major reasons that lines and wrinkles form in the skin, and addressing this problem can take years off of your appearance.

The other reasons that wrinkles and sagging skin develop are the loss of firmness and elasticity brought about by declining tissue production, and tissue and polymer decomposition. 

Enzymes take more and more of your tissue and polymer each year, while the body continuously produces less tissue annually.  There comes a point where the production rate simply can’t match the rate of tissue and polymer degradation.

When seeking out a natural moisturizer that will help you eliminate your lines and wrinkles, you have to be keenly aware of what works and what doesn’t.

Moisturizing formulas that feature petroleum based compounds for example, actually do the skin more harm than good.  These compounds dry the skin instead of providing moisture, clog pores, and interfere with you ability to exfoliate.

Petroleum based compounds provide none of the essential nutrients you need to help your skin look younger.  The aromatic compounds commonly known as essential oils provide you with the nutrients you need, but these distilled compounds are not nearly as effective as some organic substances.  What you want are cold-pressed plant derived oils for moisturizing and healing your skin.

A truly effective natural moisturizer will feature ingredients like grape seed and avocado oil extracted using the special cold-pressing method.  This process keeps all of the beneficial properties of the substance intact, which can’t be said for other extraction methods.

Substances like the two oils mentioned above help you look younger by providing antioxidants, slowing the decomposition of your tissues and polymer, and stimulate collagen production.

Other ingredients in a natural moisturizer that will benefit the tissue content of your skin include Phytessence Wakame kelp extract, active Manuka honey, Xtend TK, and Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10.

Phytessence Wakame is an excellent partner for grape seed oil, as it also inhibits the enzymes that threaten your hyaluronic acid.  Active Manuka honey is known for its ability to increase collagen production.

Xtend TK and Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10 are without a doubt the most effective tissue production stimulators available today.  One is a protein complex and enzyme synthesis, and the other is a nano-emulsified form of coenzyme Q10.

These substances were only recently developed by a group of scientists in New Zealand, and they are capable of increasing your stores of collagen and elastin considerably.

A natural moisturizer that combines most or all of these highly effective ingredients is ideal for moisturizing the skin, providing antioxidants, maintaining tissue and polymer stores, and creating greater amounts of collagen and elastin.  You are not going to find a more effective set of ingredients out there, as these compounds will make you look years younger.

    As a natural moisturizer I use Himani BOROPLUS Body Lotion which is a unique blend of herbal actives with deep nourishing natural moisturizers like Kokum butter, Aloe Vera & Vetiver and antioxidants like Wheat Germ Oil. Enriched with Tea tree oil and Liquorice this non-greasy Body Lotion helps to relieve skin dryness and nourish skin to make it soft, supple and glowing with health.
