Science behind your skincare

By Annamawrick Subscribe to RSS | January 27th 2012 | Views:

Many adverts for skincare products, some of them the most expensive options available, make wild claims about their ability to get rid of wrinkles or make women look younger. Often these adverts quote scientific research, baffling consumers with impressive-sounding ingredients in a bid to make their product sound more futuristic and effective. But how much of the science that goes into these skincare products will really give you healthier, younger skin and how much of it is just a marketing trick?

The beauty industry advertising gurus are becoming experts at taking everyday ingredients and making them sound scientific and expensive. A product described as being rich in aqua and humectants could retail for a lot more than a similar cream which is truthfully advertised as being made with water and moisturisers. Often skincare adverts are not actively lying to us; they just aren't being very truthful either. Some manufacturers like to create their own words for ingredients, including mysterious items such as peptides, which apparently tell the body to make more collagen, and C-60, which is said to be a naturally occurring carbon with antioxidant properties, even though scientists have never heard of any of them.

Most moisturisers will make our wrinkles disappear for a short while as that is what moisturisers are designed to do; they make our skin puff up which hides wrinkles until the effects wear off. This is why many women who do nothing but spend time applying creams and lotions will swear that they work and that they have never looked better. If they took a few days away from their hundred-dollar jars and bottles, they would soon realise that any wrinkle-reducing effects are purely accidental.

In fact, many of the beauty products actually tell women this themselves – it just happens that the disclaimers are hidden away in the small print at the back of the bottle. Scientists have discovered that our genes are just as responsible for whether we develop wrinkles as what creams we apply to our faces or other environmental factors. So whether your mother and grandmothers had great skin until their old age or their faces were wrinkled by the time they were 40, you can stop wasting your money as no amount of moisturiser is going to make any difference.
