Anti Aging Natural Skin Care with Wakame Kelp Extract

Posted on  
Here’s a look at some of the more effective anti aging natural skin care solutions.  There are plenty of “marginally” effective ingredients.  The ones covered here are a little better than that.  Let’s start with wakame kelp.
Wakame kelp or seaweed is highly nutritious. So it is often used as a component of many health food recipes.  The benefits to the skin’s health are several.  The first benefit has to do with a compound called hyaluronic acid.
If you have compared any of the ingredients in the anti aging natural skin care products currently on the market, you have probably seen one called hyaluronic acid.  It is one of the most popular ingredients right now.
The popularity is due in part to the compound’s use as an injectable to stretch out wrinkles and fine lines.  Hyaluronic acid and other compounds are injected into the skin’s fatty tissue layer to improve firmness and reduce wrinkling.  When applied topically, however, it does nothing.
Another reason for its popularity has to do with the following fact: The skin’s hyaluronic acid levels decline with age.
This is one of the causes of the lost elasticity and lost firmness that occurs with age.  Lost firmness leads to wrinkles.  Once again, applying it to the skin’s surface does nothing to increase the skin’s hyaluronic acid content.
Scientists have discovered the reason for the decreased levels as we age.  It is due to increased activity of a family of enzymes called hyaluronidaise.  They naturally break down hyaluronic acid.  When we are young, the body simply produces more.  So there is a balance.
Extracts from wakame kelp have been shown to inhibit the activity of hyaluronidaise by 52% after 5 days of use.  That means the skin’s hyaluronic acid levels will rise by about the same percentage.  The result is a more youthful look due to the improved firmness and smoothness.
Anti aging natural skin care products containing the extract will also help protect against free radical damage caused by UV rays and exposure to environmental pollutants.  The compound in the extract providing that benefit is called sulfated polyfucose.
Finally, wakame kelp extracts help to maintain the skin’s moisture balance by providing essential minerals like sodium, potassium and calcium.  Kelp actually contains more calcium than an equivalent serving of milk.
Every anti aging natural skin care product should contain wakame kelp extracts, but most don’t.  A lot of them contain seaweed or marine algae.  But not all seaweeds provide the same benefits.Briefly now, let’s look at grape seed oil.  Grape seeds contain numerous antioxidants.  The skin’s antioxidant content also decreases with age.
Some antioxidants can penetrate through the skin’s layers when applied topically.  Others should be present in your diet.  Dermatologists recommend eating more fruits and vegetables to help counter antioxidant loss.
Free radical damage is one of the main causes of cellular aging everywhere in the body; inside and out.  Our only defense against free radical damage is the antioxidant.
