The Hidden Truth About Your Skincare Products

Daniel Kim Views  

Does tapping help with cosmetics absorption?

Cosmetic advertisements emphasize the effects of skin care products, similar to those brought about in clinics, such as promoting collagen, smoothing wrinkles, and reducing pores. However, these effects can only be achieved when the ingredients are directly injected deep into the skin, a depth of penetration that cosmetics cannot reach. Then, do cosmetics not affect skin management at all? Let’s find out from the principle to the effect of cosmetics.

Are cosmetics, which are not profoundly absorbed, ineffective?

Cosmetics cannot be absorbed deep into the dermis of the skin. However, that doesn’t mean cosmetics are ineffective. They can create a suitable environment for the skin by retaining moisture in the stratum corneum and supplying it with beneficial ingredients. When high-quality cosmetic ingredients make a good atmosphere in the stratum corneum, including humidity, the skin’s surface can become firm and radiant, and a sturdy moisture barrier can be created. This can allow skin to retain moisture effectively.

If it can’t penetrate the dermis, is it ultimately ineffective?

Although the cosmetic ingredients themselves do not penetrate the dermis to produce collagen, good cosmetics can protect the skin’s stratum corneum, indirectly recovering skin damage by creating a sturdy external environment and thereby creating an optimal skin condition. Therefore, even if they are not absorbed deep into the skin, skin management with cosmetics can be a meaningful method.

On the contrary, if all the ingredients of cosmetics penetrate deep into the skin, problems such as systemic allergic reactions can be triggered by allergenic ingredients entering the bloodstream. Therefore, being deeply absorbed is not necessarily a good thing.

What are the requirements that cosmetics must meet?

Moisturizing is important for strengthening the skin barrier. First, it’s advisable to choose cosmetics with a good moisturizing effect. Next, consider the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and skin regeneration effects. Because many external or internal conditions can easily trigger dermatitis, you should choose cosmetics containing anti-inflammatory ingredients that can alleviate dermatitis.

In addition, we apply and consume vitamin C to prevent aging. Its antioxidant action is essential for anti-aging. Lastly, the ability to heal wounds caused by inflammation is vital for skin regeneration.
