what is collagen? It is the main protein that exists naturally in your skin and body and is sometimes referred to as the glue of your body. About 30-35% of your body consists of Collagen and around 75 %of your skin is made of Collagen.The production of collagen decreases with age (as does almost everything, except the effect of gravity on your but). This leading to saggy skin and formation of wrinkles (tell me about it).
I need to lift a tiny warning when buying products containing collagen. If a product say it contains collagen and only that word it is probably not a good product. Collagen itself is a large molecule which cannot penetrate the skin at all. When you have a product containing regular collagen it will wash away when you clean your face.
This is a really nice cleansing foam and I really do like it. But if you are feeling a little tension in my writing (hmm is that even possible). Well, but if you do I only have one problem with it and that is that I keep on comparing it too Innisfree jeju volcanic pore cleansing foam (which is amazing). These are two different products, and I think I should be loving this one more, since I have really dry skin. But sorry, I don’t. I do really like it, it feels really nice on the skin, it does the job and it really makes my skin feel moisturized and not completely dry.
The product I have been testing is for hypersensitive skin and it’s a complete solution for the skin. The problem when having sensitive dry skin is that the skins barrier is weakened and the skin starts blushing.
The day creams work as a makeup base, and It is free from preservatives, paraben, paraffin, fragrance, alcohol, colorants, emulsifier, non-comedogenic (doesn’t include ingredients that are known to cause acne). The series are developed to manage three symptoms of hypersensitive skin: skin barrier, hyper-reactive sensory fibers, and redness.The product claims to provide with long lasting skin comfort and relieves redness, minimizing irritation over time.
There are so many ways to use aloe vera gel and here are some of my favorite ways to use it.
1. Moisturizer. Need I say more. After a nice shower or a bath, just slap some on and feel it doing its magic. Can be used both on the face and the body.
2. Sunburns: the summer is on the way, spring is here (Sweden) and the sun is showing itself more and more. This is the time for sunburns. First be sure to use sunblock to try and avoid getting burned. But if it happens then use aloe gel on the burned skin. Just reapply as it starts burning.
3. Hair treatment. Whenever I have been using it as a moisturizer I pull my fingers through my hair. Keeps the hair moisturized.
