3 Anti Aging Skin Care Ingredients To Look For
Beta Hydroxy Acids
This type of ingredient works as an exfoliant by helping loosen dead skin from the epidermis. In this way, it will make room for the growth of brand new skin – and speed up the cell turnover process as well.
Two common acids in the BHA range are: salicylic acid and caprylic acid. These acids will help in improving wrinkles, roughness and damaged skin. Over time you will notice a decrease in slight discolorations and mild dark spots.
Having BHA in your beauty products will also help in improve the texture of your skin , and keep acne, blemishes and blackheads at bay.
You probably know by now that this ingredient is one to look for in your skin products. Retinol is a form of pure and active Vitamin A which has skin penetrating properties and enhances the production of collagen and elastin.
The vitamin A found in retinol helps in reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and overall skin tone, and stimulates the natural cell turnover rate.
Note – Women who has sensitive skin can oftentimes use retinol as an alternative to full potentcy Vitamin A anti-aging ingredients, without irritation. If you have a question about the product you are considering using, go directly to the manufacturer and make an inquiry.
Ever since Dr. Nicholas Perricone published his best-selling books about the “face lift diet” (also known as the Perricone Diet), the public became aware of the numerous skin care benefits of DMAE. You can google that and read more about it.
As a skin care ingredient DMAE can improve skin elasticity, thereby reducing sagging skin. It can also lighten discolorations of the skin such as age spots and other forms of hyperpigmentation.
DMAE reduces the levels of lipofuscin, a substance found in the body that increases with age and produces irregular accumulations of pigment; and along with that these increased levels comes interference with collagen production that leads to loss of youthful tone in the face and the entire body.
