In order to have healthy skin you need to choose good quality, healthy skin care products. Choose the wrong products and you may find yourself having to deal with dry and premature wrinkled skin. Worse yet, some skin care products may actually contain ingredients that are harmful to your overall health.

So how do you choose the right skin care products? Just what ingredients should you be looking for and which ingredients should your avoid? Here are a few tips that may help you choose those products that are healthiest for your skin and your overall health.

Start By Choosing Products That Contain All Natural Ingredients

When it comes to your skin health Mother Nature really does know best. Those skin care products that contain chemical ingredients and synthetic fragrances and colorings can dry out your skin over time leaving it dull looking and causing damage that may be difficult to repair. In addition, when you rub those chemicals into your skin they eventually make their way into your blood steam where they can do untold damage to your overall health. It’s far better for your skin’s health to choose only those products that contain natural ingredients, but which natural ingredients work best for keeping your skin healthy and young looking?

Natural Oils

Look for products that contain natural vitamin enriched oils such as:

  • Avocado oil
  • Shea butter
  • Macadamia oil
  • Olive oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Grape seed oil

Natural oils often contain vitamins and minerals that are good for your skin and help to hold in moisture while providing extra nourishment. For example Avocado oil is a great source of natural vitamin E which helps keep your skin healthy. While grape seed oil contains strong antioxidants that help keep those wrinkling causing free radicals at bay. These natural oils not only help to keep your skin moisturized but, also help to balance the PH levels in your skin, and leave it feeling and looking softer and healthier.


That’s right! That sticky golden sweet bee by product that tastes so good in those healthy smoothies is good for your skin as well as your internal health. Honey has long been used in natural skin care products due to it’s ability to soften skin and because of it’s anti-bacterial properties. Manuka honey is a sought after ingredient in skin care products due to its high level of anti-bacterial properties that may help prevent acne break-outs and help to heal damaged skin.

Phytessence Wakame

Phyutessence Wakame has come to be considered an important ingredient in skin care products due to the fact that this Japanese seaweed inhibits the Hyaluronidase an enzyme that destroys the hyaluronic acid levels in the skin resulting in premature wrinkling. When Hyaluronidase levels are controlled, hyaluronic levels rise thus helping to delay those wrinkles that are a sign of aging.

Some Form Of Coenzyme Q 10

Your body naturally produces the coenzyme Q10 and every cell in the body uses this enzyme. It is also important in keeping the skin healthy as it helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production. As you age, the levels of the Coenzyme Q 10 drop. By using skincare products that contain this coenzyme you help to maintain collagen and elastin production for longer, thus reducing the amount of those fine lines and wrinkles.

By choosing those skin care products that contain the right natural ingredients to help you maintain healthy skin, your skin will look younger and feel better than you may have thought possible.
