Anti-aging Essentials: 4 ingredients that will guarantee your most youthful looking skin!
Lets face it, aging is something that everyone is experiencing and everyone wants to combat. Although the best way to look great is to age gracefully, its never too early or too late to take care of your body inside and out. Confidence comes from knowing you’ve done your personal finest to be the best you, and your skin routine plays a big role. Research has found that there are 4 skin care ingredients on the market that when used together, give your skin its best fighting chance in the battle against aging! Of course, ones diet, lifestyle and biological factors play a huge role in skin appearance. However, taking care of your skin on a daily basis with great products is a must.
To fight aging, the 4 ingredients to look for are Vitamin a, Vitamin c, Peptides, and Sunscreen.
Vitamin A is most commonly known on the market as skins anti-ager. Vitamin A comes in the form of retin-a, retinol, or retinal palmytate. This product speeds up cell metabolism which resurfaces the skin, resulting in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A products typically come in the form of a night cream, and best used at night because sun exposure directly after use is not recommended. Also, your skin repairs itself at night, therefore putting on your most active products then may yield better results.
Vitamin C is one of the strongest antioxidants on the market and well known for its brightening factor. Vitamin C is not only a natural sun protectant, but it defends against free radicals that break down skin cells and cause fine lines. While free radical defense is extremely important because we live in a toxic environment, vitamin C’s ability to lighten hyper pigmentation and brighten skin is what most people love about this amazing product. An even skin tone is one of the number one signs of youth!
In addition to a glowing complexion, collagen production is a must. Collagen gives skin its support and thickness. When collagen is lost and not replaced, the skin becomes hollow, saggy, and wrinkles are formed. Peptides are what build collagen in your skin. Applying peptides topically tricks your skin into thinking it has lost collagen, therefor creating a burst of collagen production!
Last and definitely not least, there’s sunscreen. some love it, some hate it, but everyone MUST where it. 99 percent of what you don’t like about your skin is caused from sun exposure. meaning, if you never went in the sun, you would be 99 percent more confident in your skins appearance. Crazy! Whether you’re oily, dry, sensitive or acneic, there’s a sunscreen out there that will work for you. ideally you want a mineral sunscreen such as one with zinc.. but any good sunscreen with an spf of 30 or higher will do as long as you wear it on a daily basis and reapply as needed… and don’t forget your neck and chest!
