Good to know about moisturizers.

Did you know that no moisturizer can prevent wrinkles? A good moisturizer with water-binding agents, antioxidants and anti-irritants can, however, help your skin look smoother. It can also make your skin function better, improve its texture and reduce the effects of sun damage.

Many people over use moisturizers. Using products too aggressively or in the wrong combinations inhibits your skin's immune response, reduces skin's ability to heal, and prevents new cell growth. It can diminish structure, breaking down collagen and elastin.

The term 'water-binding agents' refers to ingredients that keep water in the skin. This is a real plus in supporting your skin's natural ability to function well and look good. This is especially true in the heat of summer and on the cold days of winter.

Did you know that moisturizers that are too heavy might actually cause dry looking skin? They can hold dead cells in place, so the top layer of skin can appear greasy while the underneath feels dry.

About ingredients in moisturizers

Good to know in simple terms, what some of the ingredients in Eva Ein's DAY and NIGHT are and what they actually do.

"Sodium Hyaluronate" actually fixes moisture on the surface of the skin and locks it in. It's an excellent reservoir and an ideal lubricant.

"Glycerin" is a humectant (capable of absorbing and retaining moisture). It helps loosen dry skin scales and is very effective even on dry skin problems. The best part is that it doesn't aggravate acne.

"Squalene" is naturally derived from olives and is enriched with lipids - a key component in moisturizers. Squalene has a high affinity to the skin and is hypoallergenic.

"Jojoba Oil" is derived from plants that can survive temperatures of 115 degrees and sparse rainfall. For your skin this translates to being an excellent moisturizer that lays down a protective film to help lock moisture into the skin.

"Vitamin C" helps promote the production of collagen - an ingredient we've heard a lot about that's a vital element in maintaining your skin's firmness and elasticity. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant. This means it fights against skin-damaging free radicals and environmental damage. Vitamin C also improves the barrier function of your skin - helping it retain moisture - which reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Did you know that "Chamomile" is one of the oldest known medicinal herbs? It's an excellent anti-inflammatory as well as an analgesic and antiseptic. It's great for hypersensitive or dry skin.

"Aloe Vera" also has an ancient history, originating in Southern Africa. The plant contains biogenic stimulators which are used in skin therapy. Used for more than 3000 years, it's a fantastic healing agent for the skin. Legend has it that Cleopatra used fresh aloe gel on her skin every day to preserve her beauty.
