Can Anti-aging Creams Help You Lose Weight?
Anti-aging creams containing retinol, hyaluronic acid, and niacinimide can help you lose weight and keep you looking young.
New anti-aging cosmetic companies are cropping up. Why? Specialists project the market will be very lucrative in the near future. The charts back them up – these companies are exponentially increasing their revenues every year.
But did you know applying anti-aging creams to your skin can help you lose weight?
Which Anti-aging Creams Are Healthy?
Who doesn't want to stay looking in their prime? Companies advertise many bold claims about their products being able to make your wrinkles and lines disappear. Even if they work, are they healthy for you?
The good news is there are natural compounds that make your skin look younger when applied topically. Healthy anti-aging creams use these compounds as their active ingredients.
Three common ones are: retinol, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid. These three also help you lose weight!
Retinol comes from vitamin A. WebMD says it's the best over-the-counter anti-wrinkle ingredient. The famous Dr. Oz also found that retinol removes cellulite (which increases with age) from your skin. Although not actual fat, cellulite does make you look bulky in places. Removing cellulite won't actually make you weigh less, but it will make you look less fat.
Niacinamide comes from vitamin B3. WebMD says it keeps your skin hydrated and encourages collagen production (collagen makes your skin perky and prevents sagging). Research also shows that this wonderful compound keeps candida at bay! Candida overgrowth can make you crave sugary and fatty foods. Putting niacinamide in your body means you'll be helping your skin and lowering your appetite too!
Hyaluronic acid is the main chemical in your skin responsible for keeping moisture in. It doesn't last long though, and that's why your skin constantly keeps making it. The older you get the less your body makes of this vital chemical. Using topical products that contain hyaluronic acid helps keep your natural stores healthy. Since skin hydration plays a role in its toxin-eliminating efficiency, it also helps you lose weight by limiting toxin buildup, which can cause weight gain.
Choose an anti-aging cream that contains these three healthy compounds and you'll be nourishing your skin and also supporting your weight loss.
