3 Anti-Aging Ingredients That Work Wonders

On average, when you are celebrating your 29th birthday, that’s the moment when you will start to look old. The first signs of ageing start to become apparent on the surface of the skin. Fine lines appear first, and over the time, you will start to see wrinkles. Then a loss of volume become noticeable. Our skin ages for a variety of different reasons. Some of these reasons can be avoided and some can’t. For the reasons that can be avoided, it can be controlled to an extent by a holistic approach to prevention.

Even if so, much as a single fine line hasn't appeared on your face yet, preventative care is key, even in your younger years. In general, it is neither too early nor ever too late to start on what we call a prejuvenation (prevention and rejuvenation) regimen. Here we provide 4 tips to prejuvenation to kick any signs of ageing! 

Tip 1: Cleanse in the Morning and Evening

"In the morning, you have oil and dust on your face from sleeping, and in the evening, you have to wash off sunscreen, makeup, dirt, and pollen. Finding a gentle cleanser that matches your skin type (dry, oily, or combination).

Tip 2: Moisturize

When you get out of the shower in the morning, and after you wash your face at night, use a moisturizer right away to lock the water in your skin, preferably a cream over a lotion. This helps your skin look soft and smooth, which can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles.

Tip 3: Photoprotection

The easiest, most effective and most inexpensive anti-aging regimen anyone can use is one that provides protection from the sun. Regular use of sunscreens will not only protect your skin from skin cancer, but will also help prevent fine wrinkles, sun-induced brown spots, and the overall loss of collagen that lead to visible signs of skin aging. 

Tip 4: Retinoids and antioxidants

There are many categories of “anti-ageing” products which are easily available at any drugstore. Generally speaking, most anti-aging products focus on protecting against ultraviolet rays of the sun, soaking up damaging free-radicals and stimulating collagen formation. Collagen is the major protein backbone of the skin that gives it structure, resilience and ultimately helps plump up the skin and smooth out wrinkles. Retinoids are the most effective of the topical agents available for stimulating collagen. They also alter the way skin grows, diminishing photo-damage. In adults, it makes sense to start using effective topical agents at the first signs of photo aging, which is often in the 20’s or 30’s. The earlier they are used, the better is the skin protected and the more damage is prevented.

Our Dermatologist Says These 3 Anti-Ageing Ingredients Work Wonders on Fine Lines and Wrinkles.

Moisturizing alone can improve the appearance of your skin. It temporarily plumps the skin, making lines and wrinkles less visible. Moisturizers are lotions, creams, gels and serums made of water, oils and other ingredients, such as proteins, waxes, glycerin, lactate and urea.

Wrinkle creams often are moisturizers with active ingredients that offer additional benefits. These added ingredients are intended to improve skin tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles. The effectiveness of these products depends in part on your skin type and the active ingredient or ingredients. Here are common ingredients that may result in some improvement in in the appearance of your skin.

  • Peptides: These molecules occur naturally in living organisms. Certain peptides are able to stimulate collagen production and have been shown to improve skin texture and wrinkling.
  • Retinoids: This term is used for vitamin A compounds, such as retinol and retinoic acid. These ingredients have long been used topically to help repair sun-damaged skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Vitamin CVitamin C is a potent antioxidant, which means it protects the skin from free radicals, such as unstable oxygen molecules that break down skin cells and cause wrinkles. Vitamin C may help protect skin from sun damage and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Before and between uses, wrinkle creams containing vitamin C must be stored in a way that protects them from sunlight.

When Should You Start an Anti-Ageing Skin Care Routine?

When it comes to taking good care of your skin, the earlier you start, the better. They say prevention is better than cure, which is why taking preventive measures and using effective skin care products in your 20s before your skin shows the first signs of ageing is a step worth taking.

However, many only starts paying attention to their skin care routine in their 30s, when the first signs of ageing begin to appear. There is a common myth going around that it’s too late for your skin to regain its youthful radiance, and while you cannot stop or turn back the clock, you can still do a lot to pep up your skin. Using the right skin care products in the right order can work wonders and can leave you with softer, younger-looking skin.
