London: When it comes to anti-aging, there are plenty of products brimming with novel skincare ingredients from snail slime to placenta. But if you’re serious about maintaining youthful skin, stick to the ones that work and have proven benefits such as retinol and sunscreen.
Moisturize your body: Using a regular moisturizer such as Cetraben ointment on the body is a fantastic way of maintaining the skin barrier and battling dryness. Try and eat a diet rich in protein, fruit and vegetables, and Omega-3 fatty acids in order to keep skin at its optimum health.
Wrinkles Free and Flawless Skin With Skin Care Tips
Check the label for these top anti-aging ingredients.
Retinol: Retinol (vitamin-A derivative) is an anti-aging hero and helps fix almost everything, including wrinkles, dullness, oiliness, sagging skin and age spots. It also treats acne and skin conditions like keratosis pilaris, which is why so many dermatologists recommend it.
Retinol works by speeding up cell turnover and collagen production for smoother and younger-looking skin.
Peptides: Peptides are short chains of amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) that signal skin cells to produce and stimulate more collagen, making them ideal for firming skin and smoothing wrinkles. The ones with most sciences behind them are Matrixyl and Argireline.
Sunscreen: We hate to break it to you, but more often than not signs of aging, including wrinkling and loss of elasticity, are caused by unprotected sun exposure. Applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or higher daily is the most important thing you can do to protect your skin from UVA harm and stop these early signs of aging.
Vitamin C: Speaking of vitamin C, this powerful antioxidant protects the skin from free radicals (such as sunlight, smoke, and pollution), and it also brightens. Vitamin C builds collagen and increases cell turnover to lighten hyperpigmentation to keep skin from looking dull.
Glycolic acid: This exfoliator safely treats lines and discoloration on all skin types. It comes in lotions and face washes, but individually wrapped pads are most effective because the pH of glycolic can change when it’s exposed to air.
Try Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Peel once a week to avoid irritation. The first step pad contains five acids; glycolic, lactic, malic, citric and salicylic – and the second contains retinol, along with all its anti-aging benefits.
