The Beauty Ingredents Snob! Part Two! Elizabeth Arden Gets Today's Ultimate Ingredient Pick!
Last time I wrote about ingredients and some of their potential outcomes. I also self proclaimed my title as the proverbial “ingredients snob!” I guess it’s pretty clear by now I’m all about the ingredients when it comes to beauty products. I suppose we all are whether we look at it that way or not. It’s not rocket science to figure that out…but it is indeed science that makes the products work. I call it cosmeticokinetics and cosmeticodynamics. Whether those are actual real words or terms I doubt; but it makes sense to me to look at it that way. After all there are terms in pharmacology that are similar so it seems logical to me to borrow the parallel.
1. The process by which a drug is absorbed, distributed, metabolized, and eliminated by the body.
2. The study of this process.
1. The branch of pharmacology dealing with the course of action, effect, and breakdown of drugs within the body.
I’ve set this up for you to understand why it’s important to look at ingredients this particular way. In order for a beauty product to work I feel we need to look at its absorbability (molecular size, consistency, etc), how its broken down, what is in it and how all those things work together (potentiate activity of one another), how it works and the study of its entirety.
Today we’ll look at some top notch proven, effective ingredients in skincare.
Ceramides: are a collection of lipid molecules found mostly in the cell membrane. They are responsible for signaling the cell to regulate differentiation, proliferation, programmed cell death and apoptosis. This is why they’re an excellent ingredient for skin care products.
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide's Elizabeth Arden Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules are unique little ampoules filled with the precious ingredient. They are singularly dosed, easy to use and work brilliantly by supporting the natural collagen in our skin cells. (A perfect example of why it’s important to understand why ingredients are key to your beauty products). They strengthen and firm up the skin, improve the clarity, even out the tone, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
Elizabeth Arden is a premium brand which offers results oriented ingredients in all of their EA products. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules containing precious lipids is my ultimate ingredient pick of the day!
