Don't Get Ripped Off Get Informed
I’d like to thank everyone for their suggestions on how to present effectively. I’ve incorporated a lot of what you folks have talked about and it made for an interesting presentation on medical implants. I would also like to thank all of you who came up afterwards to tell me I’m charismatic; God knows I need a bigger ego. While sifting through some material I came across something that you ladies and metro sexual men might be interested in. Skin care companies are ripping you off, St. Ives I'm going to reveal your "Swiss Secret". Now I know you all had that nagging feeling but you didn’t know exactly how you were being screwed. Recently a number of skin crèmes have popped up on the market with things like collagen, elastin, fibronectin and vitronectin listed as their active ingredients. The claim is that these are natural products of your body that will result in rejuvenation of your skin keeping you looking like a hot tamale. These proteins help with cell proliferation and wound healing in your body, which is why they have significance for the medical implant market but do they do anything when you put them on your face? Well they are proteins, which means they really like to bind water so they may moisturize your face. However you’d pretty much get the same effect by drunkenly passing out in a nacho plate (my preferred method of protein application). What they don’t do is rejuvenate your face resulting in cell proliferation as claimed. It’s a good thing too because another name of uncontrolled cell proliferation is tumour. While resulting in some cool topography on your face they’re not so good for your health. These companies are taking advantage of people by marketing a product with an active ingredient that’s not all that active. So don’t get scammed by junk science and slick marketing. That $10 crème without collagen is probably just as good as the $85 dollar one with it. If anyone out there wants to know the science behind anything else drop a comment and I’ll do a post on it.
