With the increase in pollution, poor lifestyle, and constant exposure to the sun, it is a common tendency to get weak, sagging skin, and early wrinkles. From fighting those pesky free radicals to stimulating skin's natural collagen production, anti-aging products have become some of the most sought after products in the skincare space today. And that's how it has become a huge market today. Although there are a lot of creams, lotions, and supplements that claim to reduce wrinkles or slow down premature aging, what is the best way to find the right anti-aging product that works? By finding the right ingredients that work well with you. The effectiveness of an anti-aging product depends on its ingredients.
So today, let's discuss four commonly listed active ingredients to fight the signs of aging.
A Vitamin A compound, retinol, is a widely used antioxidant ingredient used in creams that are sold over the counter. The antioxidant property of retinol helps in fighting the damage caused by free radicals - which can contribute to the breakdown of skin cells and cause wrinkles. This natural form of vitamin A works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and boosts the thickness and elasticity of the skin.
2. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is another essential antioxidant that is found in wrinkle-free and anti-aging creams. Vitamin C offers protection from damage caused by UV rays of the sun. However, wrinkle creams containing Vitamin C must be stored in a cool and dry place, away from air and direct sunlight.
As you age, your skin becomes thinner and loses fat, causing it to sag and develop fine lines. The body produces less collagen and elastin, substances that enable the skin to maintain its smooth, plump, and youthful appearance. Peptides are small proteins that help stimulate new cells to grow and help skin cells to heal stretch marks, wounds, and wrinkles.
4. Alpha-hydroxy acids
Alpha-hydroxy acids, such as lactic, glycolic, and citric acids, are natural ingredients that come from fruits and milk sugars. Each acid has a slightly different effect. Lactic acid, which comes from sour milk, helps remove dead skin cells, which has a brightening effect on the skin. Glycolic acid, which comes from sugar cane, can help by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, making the skin appear smoother and tighter.
The ingredients of a product have a lot to say about the product. So make sure you find at least 2 of the ingredients mentioned above in the next anti-aging cream you purchase.
Point to remember: Every individual has a different skin type. Hence the same anti-aging and wrinkle-free cream might not have the same effect on you and someone else.
