6 Best Skincare Ingredients that will Slow the Signs of Aging
The process of ageing is a scary thought for most of us. It is a common concern these days for people to look young forever. And this increasing concern lures them to look for solutions that can help keep their skin look youthful eternally. Skincare routines have become the norm.
If you are a starter in the skincare regime world or a pro, there are certain things you must have noticed. Things like your skin do not look the same at different times of the year. Sometimes it is oilier, sometimes drier, and it keeps changing with the seasons. Various reasons make your skin look dull and aged even in your heydays, if not correctly cared for. So, the ageing of your skin is impacted either due to unhealthy and careless lifestyles or due to your growing age, and even weather plays a role.
And, it is more than just wrinkles!
If you are chasing healthier-looking skin, something that looks fresh, radiant, and glowing all over, you need not worry. You just have to give your skin the love and care it needs, especially when the weather is harsh and more so as you age.
With countless skincare products trying to make their presence felt in the market, it can be challenging to walk the beauty path with confidence. In our quest to grab that forever youthful glow, we constantly hunt for products that can reverse the natural process of our skin getting wrinkled.
But rarely do people know which products are worth investing in. In this blog, we will sail through the vast world of anti-ageing skincare products, and some tried and tested ingredients that you should dig out to add to your skincare arsenal.
Ingredients that will fit right into your regiment:-
1. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is regarded as one of the most prominent ingredients that serve healthy skin. It is not only great for your skin but also your overall health. A superb antioxidant, it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals produced by UltraViolet rays. As a result, it balances out daily exposure to sun rays and pollution. Vitamin C also works to fade dark spots on your skin and help reduce discolouration. In addition, it encourages the production of collagen in your body, which reduces the possibility of skin ageing.
Retinol or Vitamin A is amongst the top anti-ageing ingredients used in maximum skincare and body care products. It has properties to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. At the same time, it also helps decrease the harmful effect of harsh weather on the skin. In addition, it helps in covering the fine wrinkles associated with natural ageing and may help produce skin-building compounds. However, retinol has properties that are irritating to the skin. Therefore, it is best used in a minimal amount right before bed.
3. Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is the top favourite anti-ageing ingredient used in the formulation of anti-ageing products. All thanks to its moisture-boosting properties. It gives a plump and dewy look and helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines. Contrary to other irritating acids, it is suitable for sensitive skin.
Janssen Cosmetics Anti-Wrinkle Booster Ampoules available is a face lifting serum available with us at Dr Beauty. It has the properties to get rid of wrinkles, reduces expression lines and makes the skin’s surface smooth. The composition of highly concentrated anti-wrinkle serum with skin tightening biopolymer Instensyl, gatuline expression, and hyaluronic acid proved to be excellent markers of the anti-ageing efficacy. In addition, it penetrates deeper into the epidermal skin tissue layers to allow an immediate lifting effect, rehydration and keeps the skin moisturised.
Collagen plays a crucial role in keeping your skin firm and bouncy, rather than dull, wrinkled and sagging to maintain your youthful appearance. Collagen is formed of polypeptides, or peptides, an amino acid responsible for building specific beneficial proteins in the skin. Peptides are found naturally in the skin and are also a prevalent ingredient used in skincare products. As we grow, the production of collagen slows down. If you add a peptide-rich formulation into your daily regime, it can protect your skin from getting older.
One such composition available in our stock is PCA Skin ExLinea Peptide Smoothing Serum, a concentrated product designed to keep your skin moisturised and hydrated. Additionally, it also treats the expression lines, laugh lines and forehead wrinkles. It helps keep your skin firmly tight and strengthen it, eventually reducing the depth of deep wrinkles. The formulation also has ingredients that keep the moisture intact to cells, resulting in a plump and healthy-looking face.
5. Lactic Acid
Lactic acid is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) used in various skin care products, including anti-ageing products, such as serums, toners, creams, and more similar products. It has properties to increase the cell turnover, leaving a fresh, radiant, glowing and youthful complexion. In addition, contrary to other acids that make your skin dry, lactic acid is found to maintain and increase the skin’s natural moisturising properties.
Ceramides are lipids that boost moisturised properties in the outermost layer of your skin, keeping it hydrated. This hydrating property is vital in protecting the skin and preventing dullness and wrinkles. There are no tricks in ceramides as it is effective in every skin type.
Anti-ageing creams may reduce the dull, sagging and wrinkled skin appearance, depending upon the frequency of your use, the type of product, the amount of active ingredient in the formulation, and the severity of the skin you want to treat.
However, as it is said, “precaution is better than cure”; it is essential for you to protect your skin from extremely harsh weather, sun exposure, and pollution to keep wrinkles, sagging and dull skin at bay. Also, ensure you use daily sunscreen protection to cover your skin from harmful UV rays, which is the leading cause of ageing. And above all, do follow a healthy diet regime, an essential step to prevent ageing before any other ingredient.
