Anti-ageing ingredients -2
Did you know that the sun is responsible for about 95% of the signs of ageing?
What makes us to say that sunscreens are, to date, the best anti-ageing ingredient? A night cream does not need sun protection, but any day cream should have a sun protection.
The peptides are part of anti-ageing ingredients most successful to date. There are several kinds of peptides, but peptide is a chain of amino acids which has the property of stimulating the production of collagen in the skin, reducing wrinkles. The advantage of the peptide is also being made of small particles, which are able to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, which gives better results than one ingredient that acts on the epidermis.
Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A. Several derivatives of vitamin A are used in skincare, but retinol is from an animal source. Retinol has the effect of stimulating the natural production of collagen, which fills wrinkles and smoothes lines. For real results, it is absolutely essential to buy a cream that contains retinol encapsulated a bottle “airless” or retinol ampoules because retinol is sensitive to air and light.
There is a ton of vitamins that are good for your skin! I decided to focus on vitamins E and B, because I think they should be reflected in all anti-ageing creams!
Vitamin E is actually present in almost all anti-ageing treatments. It acts primarily as a potent antioxidant. It protects the skin from free radicals. It also helps the skin to repair itself and acts as an anti-inflammatory.
In addition, it stimulates the production of collagen supports the growth of cells and accelerates regeneration.
Vitamin E, added cream helps the skin to have a more youthful appearance prevents and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin B, when it is less frequently discussed in health care. But we appreciate its more virtues. When we talk about vitamin B, actually we are talking about several vitamins because it is a family of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8, and B12. In general, vitamin B is a great responsibility for our skin glow. Our skin needs vitamin B to maintain healthy growth and renewal.
Vitamin B12, for example, is essential for cell reproduction and vitamin B12 deficiency can cause dry skin, wrinkles, acne, etc. And the B8, biotin, forms the basis of skin cells. Without enough of them, we can end up with dermatitis, itching, skin peels, etc. As for B3, niacin, it helps the skin to retain its moisture, giving skin plumper, hydrated and less wrinkled. It also has anti-inflammatory properties to relieve dry, irritated skin. Creams containing vitamin B can give the skin a healthy glow almost instantly while hydrating cells and increasing skin tone.
