Antiaging Wrinkle Creams and Low Cost Alternatives Discussed on Dr Oz Show Tuesday
(Best Syndication News) There are expensive wrinkle creams and low cost alternatives, according to Doctor Mehmet C Oz. The daytime talk-show host had experts on his show Tuesday to discuss the best wrinkle creams and various cosmetics.
Anna was first in the “truth tube”. She had a problem with bags under her eyes. Fat can contribute to the bagginess and puffy eyes. The doctor had two experts on his show to recommend the latest treatments.
The latest fix for puffy eyes is eyeseryl tetrapeptide, according to dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie.
The Win Spa Collection website calls tetrapeptides a “novel synthetic” solution to puffy eyes. Oz mentioned Kinerase which sells for about $48 a bottle. Jeanine said don’t rub your eyes and ice-packs are good.
A low cost alternative was put forth by Paula. She said that some stats show that 80 percent of all people have allergies (hay fever). A low cost antihistamine at night might be beneficial and sleep with your head slightly elevated. She said check with your doctor first.
Laugh or Frown Lines:
These wrinkle lines are around the mouth. The latest evidence shows that coffee berry products can help solve the laugh line problem. The antioxidants in the coffee plant may play a role in softening the skin lines.
The Skin and Aging website calls coffee beans the “next big thing”.
“It is said to have higher antioxidant activity than pomegranates, blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries as well as white and green teas,” according to Kenneth Beer, MD on the site.
One solution is Revaleskin Day Cream for $110 a bottle. Downie said it can be used all over the face. Paula had some low cost alternatives including: Isoflavones from soy extract, Catechins from green tea extract, Vitamins A, C, and E and Vitamin B3 products. CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM for $12.99 a bottle, Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum for $22.99 or Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, $24 are low cost.
Downie said Helioplex can be helpful for age-spots. “(It) stabilizes the UVB protectant in sun-blocks,” she said.
Paula said that sunscreen is your first defense for age-spots. She said that zinc or titanium oxide screens are best. The Blue Lizard suncream sells for about $8.69. Clinique City Block Day Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector sells for about $17.50 while Dr. Perry’s Natural Block 100% Mineral Sunscreen will run $19.95. Neutrogena also makes UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock for $11.
According to the book "The Chemistry of Ultraviolet Filters" by N. Shaath, there are three main types of sunblock. All of them either absorb or reflect UV rays.
1) Inorganic particulates reflect, scatter, and absorb UV light (such as titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, or a combination of both)
2) Organic chemical compounds that absorb ultraviolet light (such as oxybenzone, a suspected photocarcinogen)
3) Organic particulates that mostly absorb light like organic chemical compounds, but contain multiple chromophores, may reflect and scatter a fraction of light like inorganic particulates, and behave differently in formulations than organic chemical compounds. An example of an organic particulate type is Tinosorb M.
