Where to begin? Beginning your mid 20s search for Anti-Wrinkle moisturisers.

Elizabeth Taylor, 1956

Ever since you’ve known about skincare, you’ve heard the buzz words of ‘anti-ageing’ and ‘anti-wrinkle’ thrown around, but with the huge plethora of products available which do you pick? What ingredients do we need to look out for when beginning your journey or upgrading it?

When looking for anti-ageing products its important you find a product that targets all your problematic areas so they don’t continue to worsen over the next few years. However first and foremost, you should consider the ingredients you need to look out for when investing into an anti-ageing moisturising! Below are ingredients that we highlight that you need to erase your ageing woes:

Peptides – These are chains of amino acids which are blocks of proteins within the skin. Peptides are able to penetrate the top layer of the skin which means this ingredient when found in anti-ageing products will stimulate the collagen production whilst decreasing fine lines and wrinkles.

Alpha-Hydroxy Acids – Also known as AHA’s, are animal and plant derived acids that come in multiple forms. AHA’s destroy old collagen fibres to create new ones, increasing skin exfoliation at the deepest level. AHA’s are also known to brighten the skin and even skin tone, which is vital for ageing skin.

Retinol – The ever so famous Retinol is a known contributor for everyones anti-ageing journey. As you age, the cell regeneration slows down but with Retinol it speeds up your skin cell turnover. Apart from improving wrinkles, Retinol increases collagen, evens skin tone and increases elastin which keep your face tighter.

Vitamin C – Being an anti-oxidant, Vitamin C provides protection against skin sagging as well as accelerating the turnover of skin cells. Vitamin C has many anti-ageing effects on the skin, but it also supports collagen and the renewal of the skin with its anti-inflammatory effects.
