It is unbelievable, how big the skin cream market has become. There are thousands of chemical and synthetic lotions available, plus a whole range of natural skin tightening anti-aging, anti-wrinkle creams.

The big issue is how effective are they at tightening your skin. Naturally they’re all going to say they’re the best — otherwise no one will ever buy their products. However you don’t want to waste your money buying something that doesn’t work, so you need to understand what it takes to tighten facial tissues.

You first need to realize the #1 reason why your skin sags and wrinkles is because your body loses its capability to produce as many collagen, elastin and keratin protein cells as it did when you were younger.

The second contributing factor is oxidation damage, with the third being the reduction of hyaluronic acid in your facial tissues.

Therefore, the only realistic way to improve and tighten loose skin is to increase the amounts of these substances particularly in your dermis tissue layer.

There are a few natural skin tightening substances that I know of that can do this. Unless you’ve researched on the Internet it’s more than likely you will not have heard about or seen these ingredients before.

No doubt you’ve heard of coenzyme Q10 before, it’s very important for your body — in fact every cell you have contains it, however in its normal form its molecules are too big to fit through your skin cell.

Therefore when it’s topically applied it doesn’t penetrate through and only sits on the surface of your outer tissue layer (epidermis).

A new version of coenzyme Q10 called Nano-Lipobelle HEQ10 in a special ‘nano-emulsion’ form became available in a topically applied anti-wrinkle cream only last year.

This important breakthrough reduction of molecular size enables it to penetrate deeply down through your cells into your dermis layer to help build more collagen and elastin proteins.

Its antioxidant properties also help to destroy harmful free radicals that cause oxidative stress in your skin.

An equally powerful substance was developed around the same time called functional keratin. You’ve probably heard of keratin before because its dead cells help protect your scalp until they are shed.

Well, functional keratin works the same way as HEQ10 in stimulating re-growth of your vital protein tissue cells in your dermis. Boosting there levels is essential to reducing facial wrinkles, which contributes to making your complexion look smoother and more youthful.

The last substance I want to mention is Phytessence Wakame an extract from a specific type of Japanese sea kelp. It inhibits a harmful enzyme (hyaluronidase), which breaks down hyaluronic acid in your skin.

The Japanese have been using and eating it for centuries and look at their near flawless complexions.
