Restorative Night Cream
Using a restorative night cream is one of the best ways to support the skin's
natural cell renewal process and increase moisture content, as well as firmness. But, the most popular night
face creams contain petrolatum and other petroleum jelly cousins, which cause excessive greasiness, clog the
pores and interfere with natural cell renewal.
How come so many companies use it? They use it because it is cheap. It is a
byproduct that is formed when crude oil is taken from the ground. As such, it can contain any number of
impurities and contaminants. Some of them are cancer causing. You won't find petrolatum in Xtend Life's Restorative Night Cream.
Companies are not required to test their night face cream for contamination, but
Xtend-Life actually tests every batch for purity. That's just one of the reasons that I choose to buy their
In order to be effective, night moisturizing cream should contain oils that are
very similar to the skin's own sebum. The most similar are plant-based, not mineral based oils. The Shea
fruit tree provides one of these oils.
The Shea tree grows in parts of Africa. The fruit consists of a thin, nutritive
pulp surrounding a large seed or pit. The pit is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin A and E. These
oils are extracted to make Shea butter, one of the best moisturizers for night face creams.
Shea butter has been used for its ability to reduce scarring, blemishes, brown
spots, wrinkles and stretch marks. Regular use alleviates many skin problems, including acne and eczema. It
can be used to relieve itching from bug bites or allergies. It helps speed healing of small wounds and all
the while, it makes your skin softer, smoother and more youthful looking.
But, if you want a truly effective anti-aging restorative night cream, you want
more than Shea butter alone. Xtend-Life's night face creams contain it and six other active compounds, with
antioxidant, antiseptic and anti-aging activity.
Two of the other ingredients in Xtend Life Restorative Night Cream that I think are
especially noteworthy are Xtend TK and Active Manuka Honey. Both of these substances stimulate the
body to produce more collagen and elastin. The loss of collagen and elastin is what causes the fine
lines and wrinkles to begin appearing, so to stimualte the skin to produce more, is what you want your
restorative night cream to do.
In fact this is one of the reasons why this is the first product I chose to purchase from
Xtend-Life. After using it for two weeks, the fine lines on my chin began disappearing. I've used it
ever since, and I plan to use it the rest of my life.
None of us wants to look older than we truly are. Actually, most of us would like
to look younger than our age. Lifestyle and diet play a role in achieving that perfect youthful appearance
that we all desire. But, topical lotions play an important role as well.
If we use the wrong "stuff", we risk irritation, allergic reactions and premature
aging of the skin. If we choose the right day and night face cream, we look better and better every
People who have neglected their skin over the years actually benefit the most
from nutritive day and restorative night cream. In clinical studies, the people who came in looking the worst
showed the most impressive results.
So, if you look pretty good right now, you may not see an immediate difference.
But, let me assure you, you will be more likely to retain that beauty, as time goes by.
Remember to always shop for intensive night cream that is free of artificial
preservatives, fragrances and colors. That's one of the best ways to protect your skin's health.
