Dream Cream: Three Magic Ingredients

Of all the products on the market, what three ingredients should you look for in an anti-aging dream cream? Just three . . .

Osmolytes - a botanical molecule that regulates cell volume by controlling and stimulating moisture exchange. These water regulators play a major role in keeping the equilibrium between the cells and their environment. They bind water and regulate cellular stability and protect against dehydration and stresses. Hydrate.

Omega 3 and 6 - not made by the body, but essential for preventing dehydration. Healthy skin needs essential fatty acids as they affect the ability of the skin to maintain its own moisture content in several ways, not to mention their anti-oxidant properties. Many skin disorders can be alleviated within a few weeks based upon a skin care program utilizing essential fatty acids. Hydrate.

Hyaluronic Acid - a natural component in our skin assigned to the role of holding moisture. It makes up 80% of the substance of the dermis that protects the collagen and elastin fibers and gives density to the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is an incredible hydrator as it holds up to 1000 times its weight in water. Hydrate.
