Could You Talk About Skin Care Cosmetics?

Q:
Could you talk about skin care cosmetics?

A:
Sure. I will talk about some of the ingredients in cosmetics that might be helpful for improving the skin. Now let’s have a look.

The ingredients include:

  • Antioxidants. They can attack free radicals that can harm DNA in cells. The damaged skin cells can speed up many skin problems, including aging, and dark circles under eyes.
  • Salicylic acid. This ingredient helps reduce whiteheads and blackheads. Salicylic acid can delay aging signs as well.
  • Retinol. It increases collagen and removes wrinkles and fine lines. Retinol also improves skin tone.
  • Alpha-hydroxy acids. They include lactic, glycolic, tartaric and citric acids. They work by reducing age spots, uneven skin color, and fine lines. Remember to use the acids in low concentrations (5%-10%) in lotions. High concentrations might hurt your skin.
