Some drugs are only being tested
Experts believe that the best cosmetics forThe person, optimally influencing a skin, concerns to a cosmeceutical of the third level. These drugs affect all layers of the skin (epidermis, dermis and hypodermis), give enviable rates of regeneration. Their cost is prohibitive, and to date, many drugs of this level are not available to ordinary users, since all clinical trials have not yet been completed. Cosmeceuticals of the second level are creams, balms, tonics that not only improve the appearance of the skin, but also have a therapeutic effect on the cellular level.
Cosmeceuticals of the second level. Who is the manufacturer?
In total there are about a dozen companies in the world,representing such products (including "NSP-Natria"). Here, ladies can count on the presence of extracts of many plants (soya beans, chamomile, ginseng, lettuce, ginkgo biloba, green tea, etc.), natural oils, vitamins in the cream and balsam compositions. The effect of the listed ingredients is enhanced by the fact that, for example, a micrococcal lysatin enzyme is present in cosmetic products, which restores the damaged DNA structure. The company "NSP-Natria" has been operating since 1972 (registration of a trademark), therefore there is reason to trust the quality of this company's products. Although the products are not available to everyone due to the high cost.
We buy cosmetics in the pharmacy!
The best face make-up can be matchedindividually in the cheaper price segment of first level cosmeceuticals. Such products can be bought only in pharmacies, where it is represented by the firms "Vichy", "Phyto", "Lierac", etc. Cosmetic preparations of these series have an effect only on the layers of the skin to the basement membrane, therefore they preferentially eliminate dryness or fat content of the skin, small wrinkles, improve the overall condition of the ducts of the sebaceous glands on the skin. That is, they work with "problems", but have no specific therapeutic effect.
For example, cosmetics for the face skin "Vichy"(Idealia Krim) can improve the texture of the skin in one month, narrow the pores, reduce the severity of the venous network and pigment spots, smooth out wrinkles (according to reviews and clinical experience - in 77-82 percent of women who use this drug).

The active component of this cream (klbuchi extract) eliminates signs of tarnish, promotes moisturizing, and a sufficiently high sunscreen factor (25) helps keep the skin tender and fresh throughout the day.
Miracle funds from the Land of the Rising Sun are not cheap
A little less often in the Russian marketJapanese cosmetics for the face. The most famous company representing this country is the "ShiseDU" corporation, which offers a wide range of products, characterized by high quality and fairly affordable prices.

Also, customers note that any face cream ("Nevskaya Kosmetika") has a light consistency, a pleasant aroma and is adapted to the climatic conditions of the Russian Federation, which differ significantly from the climate of the same Italy or France.
Experts believe that an attractive cutaneouscover is formed primarily by sufficient moisture. In the environment there are many factors that contribute to a strong evaporation of moisture from the surface of the skin, including: inadequate nutrition, stress, adverse conditions, dry air in an apartment or study, exposure to sun, rain, heat or cold.
