Right Ingredients: Anti-Ageing
Wrinkles need to be kept at bay at all ages for when it comes to ageing, prevention is often the only cure!
The normal adage of skin care, a good diet, enough rest and plenty SPF is the go-to thumb rule of staying youthful. But when you have erred, then there are some ingredients to fall back upon – look for these in your age zapping cream and treatments…
- Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs): These are natural fruit acids found in nature and in many age-defying treatments. The exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes. New evidence shows that in higher concentrations, AHAs may also help stimulate collagen production thereby targeting deep-set wrinkles too.
- Retinoids (including Retin A): Retinol is a natural form of vitamin A found in many over-the-counter products. This ingredient has FDA approval and is particularly effective. The commonest form in topical treatment for wrinkles is tretinoin, known commercially as Retin A. It reduces fine lines and large wrinkles, and repairs sun damage.
- Topical vitamin C: So we know Oj is great for colds but studies show that topical vitamin C can increase collagen production, protect against damage from UVA and UVB rays, correct pigmentation problems and improve inflammatory skin conditions.
- Idebenone: This is the chemical cousin to the nutrient coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and is a super-powerful antioxidant. Topical benefits of application include reduction in skin roughness and dryness, increase in hydration, decrease in lines and wrinkles, and overall improvement in sun-damaged skin.
- Pentapeptides: These are proteins and can increase collagen production in sun-damaged skin thereby resulting in diminished lines and wrinkles.
