Natural Products Are Always Better!
When it comes to aging, it is human nature in not accepting the fact that we are getting older. Until, we notice fine wrinkles around the eyes, then, preservation mode kicks in and we try this or that to keep the young youthful face we once had, hoping to thwart off nature’s nasty joke of growing old gracefully, accepting, it is, what it is. Well, guess what? We don’t have to settle for, “What may come” when it comes to our face & neck. The more scientist understand the cellular and molecular biology of skin aging, the better the anti-aging products are available to us.
One product that I am using is InstaNatural Vitamin C Serum. What attracted me to this product is the fact it has natural ingredients, granted I had to look up what they were because I was unfamiliar with them & their properties, but I was pleased in making the research knowing what I was putting on my face.
These are the ingredients:
Is present throughout the body and can be made by bacteria in a laboratory. What’s so great about Hyaluronic Acid? It has the ability to retain moisture. 1 gram (.03 oz) of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to 6 liters (1 quart) of water! This is truly an important quality to have in a facial serum since after the age of 30, people lose up to a cup of water or moisture from the face per hour. We need water and other compounds to maintain a youthful skin and to keep our skin pliable, firm & supple so hyaluronic acid helps enhance moisture content and revitalize the skin’s outer layer to look softer, smoother and appear plumper. What are the healing effects of hyaluronic acid? It is used for healing wounds, burns, skin ulcers and to protect the skin against sun exposure, harsh skin care ingredients & environmental elements that can weaken the surface of the skin. It also provides a great antioxidant defense against environmental assault.
An antioxidant found in the cell walls of plants such as rice, oats and the seeds of apples & oranges. It plays a key role in the plants protection & self preservation. Why is it used in skin care? Since it is an antioxidant, when applied topically, it slows down the anti-aging process by reducing the effects of damaging free radicals & also protecting against sun damage as it assists in skin’s regeneration functions of our exposed skin. It is also a great stabilizer for more problematic antioxidants such as vitamin C. It actually makes other skin care ingredients work even harder & last longer. We all like that!
Sea Buckthorn Oil
What the heck is that? According to Web MD, it is a herb that is used to make medicine with its leaves, flowers & fruits. This is an amazing plant! It can treat a wide range of ailments: arthritis, gastrointestinal ulcers, gout, skin rashes caused by infectious diseases such as measles. It is used for preventing sun burn & for treating radiation damage from X-rays, sunburns, bed sores, cuts, skin ulcers, eczema and the seed or berry oil can treat asthma, heart disorders, cholesterol, angina, blood vessel disease…..
Plant Stem Cell
These are all found at the growing tips of roots & shoots that are actively dividing, forming new cells. These cells have the ability to self renew & replace specific plant cells in need of repair. They are cultured in a laboratory away from pollution and pesticides allowing the scientist to have more control of quality, purer ingredients without toxins or chemicals and quantity of whatever anti-aging substance the plant produces.
All of these ingredients work together to enhance & restructure the skin cells, they work with your body’s collagen, a protein that holds the whole body together. In the middle layer of the skin, collagen helps form a fibrous network, upon which new cells can grow, the replacement & restoration of dead skin cells, to create a supple skin with a youthful glow. So after using InstaNatural Vitamin C Serum, with all these anti-aging miracle ingredients, what do I think of the product? Does it live up to the information of it’s ingredients?
I noticed when applying the product, even though it has Vitamin C, it was not harsh to my skin. There was no burning or redness, which has occurred to me in using other serums with Vitamin C. It has a light pleasant citrus scent. I could instantly feel a barrier between my skin & the world. My fine wrinkle lines were less noticeable and my skin stayed soft & supple all day long. My husband said I still had a youthful glow at 9pm. There was some firming of the skin but not a noticeable tightness nor did my face feel weighed down but had a fresh pliable feel. The packaging is pleasing to the eye, sleek & exotic, I like the glass bottle, no chance of toxins from a plastic container to get into the serum. The rubber used on the applicator is of a good quality & well constructed; maybe because it is made in the USA!!!! I really like the thickness of the serum. It is easy to apply without dripping or running. So all in all, I was very pleased with the performance of this product and how it made me feel.
I received this product at a deep discount or free for my unbiased and truthful review of the product.
