There are many skin care products on the market today. Some of them have unique components. Many have common ingredients. Here are just some of the things to look for in a good product.

Vitamin E

Many lotions contain vitamin E. This is an important ingredient and is considered to have several beneficial properties; here we look at just some of them. It can have a positive effect on aging properties like wrinkles. Vitamin E has antioxidant qualities which is good to prevent damage caused by free radicals. This antioxidant quality can also help protect you from ultra-violet light and can also help protect against outside influences like pollution, from harming your face, hands, and legs. Sometimes it may be in the form of acetate, other times it may be in a natural alcohol form, the natural form is believed to have better antioxidant features. Vitamin E can be good for the prevention and treatment of sunburns. It needs to be applied beforehand, for best protection, but it will not be enough to protect you on its own, it needs to be added to sunscreen lotions which contain an SPF to make it fully effective. The epidermis can be subject to disease - Vitamin E can be beneficial for conditions like psoriasis and is an important ingredient in lotions for this condition. It is also used as a preventative for many other disorders.

Glycerine & cocoa butter

Many people use skin care products to prevent dryness. When the skin becomes dry it can result in itching and flaking which can become very annoying. This is especially prevalent in colder weather. Another factor which can result in skin dryness is if you may spend a lot of time in the swimming pool, regular use of the right moisturiser will protect against the drying effect that chlorine has on the skin.

Bathing daily with modern soaps may also result in drying your skin out. So try to select a brand of soap or shower gel that contains moisturising ingredients. Glycerine is an important ingredient to keep the skin moist, glycerine can be found in many soaps or lotions.

Cocoa butter is another effective moisturiser. It comes from fat of the cocoa bean and has many antioxidant properties. It easily melts on your body when applied and forms a protective barrier against outside irritants. This makes it particularly good for conditions like dermatitis and eczema. It is also used for the treatment and prevention of stretch marks. Pregnant women can safely apply it. An ingredient of cocoa butter is one that we have already discussed, vitamin E. When combined with other essential ingredients, this will increase the antioxidant power and can provide you with better protection from the free radicals in the environment.

You will find a huge range of skin care products available. Look for ingredients like vitamin E, glycerine, and cocoa butter. These can all provide you with protection against the signs of aging. They will also help give you protection from the environmental elements.
