What Every Woman Wants In Her Skin Care Products #AMCoffee

Woman & Her Skin Care Products

HASHTAG: #AMCoffee

skin care products, AMCoffee, womans health

A great majority of us do use at least one skin care product in their daily life. The statistics shows that an average woman is using about 31 cosmetic products in her daily routine. It may include creams and lotions and soaps and makeup items.

Skin being the largest organ in our body is the first barrier that many outside factors and pathogens come to close encounter with. That is why to have a healthy skin is our top priority. Skin serves not only as our cosmetic organ. It is our fabulously-designed, smart mechanism to allow us to live a joyful life.

To keep skin in ship-shape and healthy, we gotta take good care of it. It includes feeding our skin good nutrition inside-out, exercising to allow all the gunk to leave our bodies and clear the pores, and to hydrate it generously to keep its collagen and chemical reactions balanced.

Today’s discussion is about a small, but integral, part of our skin regiment. What kind of products do we use to support the skin function and its well-being? Last time we talked about face mapping that allows us to spot deeper problems in health that are displayed on our face, literally. Today, we’ll touch upon new trends and thoughts that skin care professionals talk about to serve our skin the best there’s out there.

    Type of Products for Modern Skin

    The right skin care products are integral to the success of our health. You want to use the right products for yourself. How do you make sure you use the right ones?

    There are the top five beauty ingredient trends, as driven by consumer demand, and many of the trends are more about what products don’t contain than what they do.

    Here they are, the top five global consumer trends driving ingredients, as outlined below in our discussion points.

    • I am always asking for recommendations from my sister, we look alike and have the same skin tone. I love to try samples. A great way to try a product before paying high prices.

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Barb,

        It’s great you can share these experiences with you sister!
        Samples are important and play their part on the components like:
        – Compatibility with your skin (no irritation)
        – Smell, and
        – Effectiveness (though this one takes MORE than a sample to prove to yourself!)

        What we need to focus in our skin care products is the overall package of ingredients. If there are great ingredients that are mixed with Toxic elements and Irritants – all the benefits from the good and even great ingredients go down the drain. – That’s what the focus is about.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      It is so true that the consumers don”t look at what the products contain when the companies advertise what it doesn’t contain on the label When it the items say Natural you better check all the ingredients. .

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Rebecca,
        SADLY, the most important element when many consumers buy products is a PRICE POINT.
        The less expensive gets PRIORITY OF CHOICE. That does not mean at all that this is the best in quality and safe.
        I spend more money buying the products that are good to my body and health. My family deserves this.
        Money NOT SPENT on Quality products will be spent on HEALTHCARE.

    • if a label says NOT tested on animals I WILL BUY! if it does not say that it does not get purchased in this house

    Multifun­ctional

    We are very busy – you said so many times!

    We want to purchase products that have multiple skin benefits, and multifun­ctional products that meet this need. These products simplify the beauty regimen by incorporating multiple benefits such as anti-aging, cleansing, moisturi­zation, antioxidant and UV protection into one.

    UV absorbers specifically are growing fast, as many women expect to have UV protection not only in their sunscreen but also in their makeup and skin care.

    skin health, women health, am coffee, amcoffee, skin care products

    • I so agree, Its nice when we can find quality product that take care of multi care needs.

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Barb,
        I have not seen anything like this before!
        I am still using a complex of skin care products that take care of different things.
        If I see something that is all natural and non-toxic, WOW, that would be a revelation to me.

        • Rebecca Swenor says:

          It would be nice to have a product like that but I really don’t think it would be possible if you put in all the factors.

          • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

            Rebecca,
            I Agree with you that it is impossible to squeeze all good stuff into one formula.
            I don’t mind using a few great products that focus on specific area like firming, lifting, creating moisture barrier, anti-aging, and so on.
            The simpler is usually the better.

    • i always purchase with UV in it cause I’m so fair skinned It takes nothing for me to get a sunburn always protect!!

    Effective, but Gentle

    Women are seeking gentle products that nourish their skin without drying effects. New products are being launched with milder alternative ingredients.

    For example, traditional surfactants such as sodium lauryl ether sulfates are being replaced with anionic surfactants. In the realm of preserva­tives, organic acids are replacing traditional preservatives such as parabens and triclosan.

    skin health, women health, am coffee, amcoffee, skin care products

    • So nice, that skin care project are going organic. One of the new trends I have been reading about is the benefits of coconut. I try a new product and it burns my face a little bit, I panic wondering what in the world is the ingredient , and am I doing more harm than good.

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Barb,
        Take a snap of the Label with Ingredients and share with me.
        It could be a peptide, an acid in it that irritates your skin. Or it could be one of other skin irritants that your skin reacts to.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      It is so important that we all learn to read the labels for everything we buy. Organic products are growing fast but you still have to read the labels for them too.

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Rebecca,
        They can put a couple of good organic ingredients and add some junk in addition. What’s the use of the ORGANIC PART???

        • oh that some of the organics are just some are in they hide the bad stuff with different words even in our food how do u get organic food with no bug holes in the food if they are not using pesticides in them they have to be using some thing

    Natural and Not Tested or Derived from Animals!

    It should come as no surprise that natural products and ingredients are on the rise. Sun care products, for example, are now incorporating the SPF-boosting properties of cinnamon bark oil, oat extract and soy bean oil.

    Animal-derived ingredients are losing their popularity due to the growing negative attitude towards the production process of these products. Women are leaning towards the products manufactured by more eco-friendly, sustainable, ethical and socially responsible brand.

    Products containing animal-derived ingredients fall into forbidden lists due to the ethical consolid­ations. As a result, consumption of lanolin and derivatives is expected to decline, particularly in Europe and India. BRAVO TO THAT!

    Each beauty market has its own hot list of ingredients with questionable safety, with some crossing markets. Women expect products in their market to not contain ingredients in their hot list. For examplle, the hot list in the United States includes parabens and triclosan, while Europe’s hotlist also includes methylis­othiazolinone.

    Obviously, there are more than the mentioned above ingredients from hot lists that cause skin and eye irritation, and even serve as precursors for cancers and inflammation that persists in our bodies.

    I try to buy the products from companies that do care about the long-term health. All petroleum-derived “Natural” ingredients are OXIDIZERS!
    AVOID THEM if you care about long-term health overall. These ingredients are everywhere: shampoos and skin care products, cosmetics, foods!
    Educating yourself on the regular basis gives us POWER OF KNOWLEDGE to look after our own best interests.

    Plant-based ingredients and preservatives in skin care products are on the high rise! That’s the way to GO!

    skin health, women health, am coffee, amcoffee, skin care products

    • Very happy the market has taken this turn. Consumers no longer blindly using and ingesting whatever is placed before us.

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Lisa,
        Yes, it is slowly turning the corner.
        Yet what I observe on the mass market, the skin care products are FAR away from what our skin and overall health can benefit from.
        The 99% of skin care has at least 2 or more ingredients that are questionable in the long run.
        I do not purchase my products in regular stores, as they do not meet health demands.

        • Very true. I see more so now people engaging with each other as we do here expressing what we want and expecting changes to be made.

    • The question I thought of was “What animals are they using?”. I dont want to know but need to know.

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Oh, my, Barb,
        Huge overusage of ingredients that derive from animals is Horrendous!

        1. Cochineal Dye
        Also listed as Carmine, this odd sounding substance is far from synthetic. It’s actually a dye collected from crushed Dactylopius Coccus … or cochineal beetles to be precise. The insects feed on cactus plants in Central and South America and the females eat the red cactus berries; when they’re crushed an intense red dye is produced. It’s found in most lipsticks and a lot of blush products.

        2. Guanine
        This one is often confused with bat guano, or bat poop. In fact, it’s a crystalline material that’s shimmering or light-diffusing and found in crushed fish scales. It’s in most mascaras, nail polishes and lipsticks. Bat poop or fish scales, does it really matter which it is now?

        3. Tallow
        Tallow is a common ingredient in many cosmetics including eye makeup, lipstick, makeup bases and foundations. To the everyday consumer, it’s more common name would be rendered animal fat. The process involves boiling the carcasses of slaughtered animals until a fatty substance is produced, ready to add to cosmetics and apply to one’s face.

        4. Gelatin
        Similar to tallow, gelatin is the boiled skin, tendons, ligaments and bones of animals. It’s aliases include gel, hide glue, gelatine, isinglass, kosher and halal gelatin. It can be spotted hiding in creamy cosmetics and nail treatments.

        5. Lanolin
        Imagine not showering for days. You know that greasy build-up in your hair? Now imagine never, ever showering and living in a steam room. Pretty gross thought, isn’t it? Well, imagine putting that greasy build-up on your face. Lanolin is the excretion from wool-bearing mammals and is found in most lipsticks and makeup removers.

        6. Squalene
        Sounds gross, doesn’t it? Well, if it doesn’t make you squeal yet, keep reading. This substance is extracted from the livers of sharks and then added to your eye makeup and lipsticks. MILLIONS OF SHARKS ARE HARVESTED EVERY YEAR. We MUST Put A STOP On It!

        7. Ambergris
        It may seem unbelievable, but this ingredient is derived from the waxy oil that lines whale’s stomachs. Surprisingly enough, this oil substance is used to make the scent “set” in perfumes. THAT IS OVERWHELMINGLY WRONG.

        8. Collagen
        Found in cosmetic lip-plumping glosses, this is a fibrous protein from animal tissue that has no proven effect on your own collagen reproduction – TOSS THAT PRODUCT!

        9. Estrogen
        Also listed as Estradiol this hormone-based can be found in most perfumes, restorative creams or lotions. Estrogen is obtained by extracting urine from pregnant horses. (Yuck? I agree. What about that weight loss program based on injections like these ones?)

        10. Retinol
        This pesky animal-based ingredient can often be found in products that boast an “anti-aging” quality. Retinol is a potent source of vitamin A, but it is almost always derived from an animal.

        • WOW, that is so disgusting.

          • Whats more disgusting, it this is legal to sell to people.

            • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

              Barb,
              What is more disgusting that FDA has very light regulations when it comes to COSMETICS.
              Basically, companies can put almost anything they want inside their products.
              Educating ourselves and not buying what’s in the market – that’s the BIGGEST MOST POWERFUL AND EFFECTIVE WHIP we, consumers, can use.

        • Rebecca Swenor says:

          These are all things I have heard of in so many products that I will be avoiding now. Thanks for sharing that important information.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Plant based ingredient is the way to go for sure. If you can’t pronounce it , it is usually is bad for you.

    • great info !!! IM late but took it all in I cant imagine how a person can work for a company that can potentially harm an innocent animal

    Stem Cells and Growth Factors: What You Should Know

    Many companies offer plant stem cells, but they are not like human stem cells and do not provide any of the benefits of human stem cells. Plant stem cells appear to provide some modest improvements in the skin, but they are primarily formulated in conjunction with other actives or peptides because they are not very active themselves. Often, they are a plant extract and offer a similarly modest impact on the skin.

    They are not making growth factors or activating wound-healing the way stem cell technology does.

    It is a complex process of selecting products that create anti-aging and healing effect on the skin. That’s what we all want in our skin care products! As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and dermal thickness. The number of fibroblasts, the skin’s overall nutritional supply, immune cells and collagen-activators all decline as we age.

    It will be interesting to see what KIND of products the skin care industry will be coming up with to offer to all of us to sustain the health and youthful look in us for decades more!

    skin health, women health, am coffee, amcoffee, skin care products

    • Are you reading a web site that test all kinds of products, that gives the results, positive and negative. Like a independent company with no connections to skin care products. Or, are you doing your own research.

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Barbara,
        I am reading a TON of stuff: from clinical studies, product reviews by professionals and doctors and chemists, and following new ingredients and new products by belonging to different groups, professional communities and email lists.
        That’s what I’ve been doing for the past 15 years.
        But my fascination with skin health comes from early age!
        My personally-formulated skin care lotion consisted of sand, water, and hand cream – I just mixed up all these ingredients for my play!

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      It really is going to be interesting to see what they come up with in the years to come. More and more people are educating themselves and others about the harmful ingredients and companies are noticing. Thanks for sharing all the information.

  8. Wonder when this will be available to the majority of people.

    • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

      Lisa,
      Right now, there are a lot of products with plant stem technology on the market.
      There’s a TON of products that are called PEPTIDES that are created for different parts of the face: eyes, facial and neck skin, and overall facial skin.
      But these products contain some other “stuff” that I do not want to apply to my skin.
      With peptides, many can experience an overall lift and fine line smoothing within a matter of days. Even after one application, we can see results. I tried a peptide treatment at the spa.
      What you need to understand is that you need to use Peptides regularly to achieve a smoothing and lifting effect.

  9. im going seaweed LOL cucumber and water i know they are safe lol Thanks agin Laura!! Great subjects!!

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Strawberries, avocado. and honey is a great mask. Your skin feels amazing after using it. My mother asked what I was using when I first started doing it.

Speak Your Mind
