Self-sufficient face rejuvenation. Part 2.
Lets kick off the forthright concept of “good cream” and “bad cream” and just continue going deeper in l’earning about the essence (ingredients) of the face cream. We earn what we l’earn, right?:)
In a cream composition, emulsifier joints lipids and water. When applied on skin, an emulsifier joints to the lipid layers of skin too, and “emulsifies” it, bringing “chemically-boosted water” to the surface and deeper skin layers. Literally, a cream emulsifier grabs the existing natural face lipids, and therefore, grabs most of a natural face lipids with time. Emulsifiers dry out skin and cause transepidermal water loss, so-called “wash-out effect”. That is why it seems skin requires a cream constantly. Not surprising – a cream emulsifier has already made its destructive job and grabbed the natural resources of the face. An emulsifier is something, that is necessary for a cream, but not for a Nature-designed face skin. For the lovers of commercial “natural” cosmetics, here are just few examples of “natural” emulsifiers: cetearyl alcohol and cetearyl glucoside, sorbitan olivate, cetearyl olivate. I would probably agree that those substances are derived from natural raw materials (?), however, those substances are already chemically transferred to something unnatural, isn’t it? Emulsifiers are an inevitability for a cream composition, not for skin.
You can find a professional and informative description of emulsifiers in skin care on the website of International Association for Applied Corneotherapy: https://www.corneotherapy.org/articles/226-emulsifiers-in-skin-care

As water is a good environment for bacteria to grow, preservatives are added to the cream formula. Preservatives are an inevitability for a cream composition, not for skin.

As chemical or “natural” fatty substances in a composition of a cream are usually smell nothing or unpleasant – flavors are added. Flavor regulators are an inevitability for a cream composition, not for skin.

Chemical creams require chemical cleansing, right? Later in the evening, we use lotions and face cleaning solutions (who has read the composition of those?:)) And once again, many components of a standard cream are good for an appearance and well-being of a cream, but nothing related to well-being of skin. Those ingredients interconnect with skin, a vital largest organ of a body, and promote a life-long addiction to them by grabbing the natural and offering the chemical. It is like a waterspout, I would call it a chemo-spout, it takes you swiftly and deep deeper into it, there seems to be no chance to get out.

More so, who knows how much chemically-boosted substances are penetrating into our bloodstream within the decades of usage? If skin barrier functions have been disrupted by emulsifiers, then a proper barrier against chemically-boosted substances no longer exist.
