I read an article from “fragrancesandcosmetics.com” website today; they are talking about 5 ingredients your anti-wrinkle products must have.
“Giving your skin the right ingredients it needs to be healthy, act younger, and appear less-wrinkled can give you some amazingly beautiful results. Here’s what you need to know about what ingredients every state-of-the-art anti-aging product should absolutely contain, whether it’s labelled as firming, lifting, re-sculpting, rejuvenating, anti-aging, and so on.
Skin needs a balanced mixture of powerful ingredients to improve the appearance of wrinkles, in much the same way as your body. If you only consumed one food or one vitamin you would soon be unhealthy. The same applies to skin! It’s the body’s largest organ and requires a complex range of ingredients to look beautiful and ward off the telltale signs of aging.
Topically applied antioxidants are essential for skin and there are many brilliant ones that can and should show up in a skin care product. Antioxidants vary from different forms of vitamins A, C, and E; beta carotene; glutathione; selenium; green tea, soy extract, grape extract, pomegranate extract, among many others. An important fact to note is that the more antioxidants that are included in your skincare product, the better!
Reduce or prevent some amount of the daily free radical damage and inflammation that destroy skin over time.
Boost the effectiveness of sunscreens and help skin resist environmental assaults.
Help skin heal and produce healthy collagen.
Healthy and young skin naturally contains substances that keep it smooth, retain water, protect from the environment, fight infection, and repair skin’s actual outer and inner barrier structure. These ingredients range from ceramides to lecithin, glycerin, fatty acids, polysaccharides, hyaluronic acid, sodium PCA, collagen, elastin, proteins, amino acids, cholesterol, glycosaminoglycans, and many more.
Skin-Identical ingredients function to:
Provide skin with the ingredients it needs to repair its outer barrier; your skin can’t hold moisture or look less wrinkled if the outside barrier of your skin is damaged.
Mimic the actual structure of skin to prevent moisture loss and make skin look smooth.
Help reinforce the skin’s natural ability to function normally and fight environmental stress.
Dramatically improve skin’s texture and, with continued use, eliminate dry skin. “
