Worried about wrinkles?
Don’t be, if your anti-ageing cream has this in it.
You already know what we’re going to say, don’t you? The strength of an anti-ageing cream is all about the ingredients. If you’re shopping for any type of wrinkle-reducing lotion, always turn the bottle around and learn about what’s in it.
What are the active ingredients in the anti-ageing cream? There are a few must-haves that’ll help you decide which one to choose. Let’s go through the top eight ingredients that are in the best anti-ageing creams:
This vitamin A compound is one of the most popular anti-ageing cream ingredients. Retinol is an antioxidant that helps to neutralise free radicals that can wreak havoc on your skin, breaking down cells and causing wrinkles. Using an anti-ageing cream with retinol as one of the leading ingredients can also treat acne, skin discolouration and fade dark spots.
Another potent antioxidant, vitamin C guards the skin against sun damage. You’ll find vitamin C in many day versions of anti-ageing creams to keep the skin protected when it’s outside, exposed to the sun and pollution. Vitamin C also plays an important role in collagen synthesis. It’s a vital ingredient for skin health.
This ingredient is used to treat acne and is also a powerful exfoliator. Given that it’s a mild acid, it’ll also decrease inflammation and prevent further breakouts. We know that no matter how old you are, you might still experience acne. Having a cleanser and anti-ageing cream that exfoliates gently then nourishes the skin will help keep it youthfully clear.
Given that your skin is the biggest organ in your body, it needs to be taken care of. And the anti-ageing skincare ingredient, CoQ10 helps provide energy to cells. As we age, our skin loses its firmness and elasticity (as a result of a loss of collagen). CoQ10 fights this process, acting as a strong antioxidant. It neutralises the harmful free radicals that are one of the major causes of ageing. You’ll find this ingredient in our anti-ageing creams.
Wounds and wrinkles – these are the two skin issues that peptides aim to resolve. This is why you’ll find it in anti-ageing creams. Peptides are amino acids, the proteins in the skin. In their natural form (a chain), these amino acids penetrate the top layer of skin and signal the cells to operate how they should. Peptide blend is an important ingredient in our anti-ageing creams, Age IQ.
It’s not just good to drink! This ingredient is found in anti-ageing creams, like ours, for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Grape seed extract
Got skin wounds, like acne scars? You’re going to love grape seed extract. It’s found in anti-ageing creams for its healing powers. This antioxidant also has anti-inflammatory properties.
While you might not have heard of niacinamide, you probably know vitamin B3. This skin-restoring ingredient that’s found in anti-ageing creams reduces water loss, boosts elasticity, and improves the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven tone, and dullness.
