Anti-aging skincare: do all ingredients work?

Anti-aging skincare: do all ingredients work?

There are a lot of ingredients that claim to be perfect for wrinkle treatment, but do they work? Let's find out!

One of the main goals every single person has when settling for a skincare routine is antiaging. And there are a lot of creams and products that claim to get the job done, but it's about time we checked if they all do what they are supposed to do. So what better than to examine each one of the 3 most popular anti-aging ingredients, right?

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a great skincare addition!

This one is a powerful antioxidant and, as such, can reduce dark age spots. Why? Well, simply because they appear thanks to oxidation. There are many forms of vitamin C, but ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate is easily absorbed by the skin, making it one of the most efficient. Vitamin C is, then, a keeper.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A has an impressive effect!

This is another major anti-age ingredient. As we grow older, the natural storage of vitamin A depletes, making fine lines and wrinkles appear. Most skincare products combine a form of vitamin A with retinol, so your skin can convert it into retinoic acid, which is a very potent hormone. Plus,  it stimulates collagen and elastin production! Vitamin A: a keeper, too.

AHAs and BHAs

AHAs and BHAs? a must!

These are chemical exfoliators and, as such, they are potent anti-agers. Though it might sound creepy, these ingredients work by burning off a layer of skin, helping you get rid of dead outer cells, creating a genuine biological effect. These two? A must!
