The Most Effective Anti-Aging Ingredients in Skincare

"Nature gives you the face you have at 20. Life shapes the face you have at 30. But at 50, you get the face you deserve.” ~ Coco Chanel 

The very first question most people have when exploring the realm of anti-aging skin care is, what skin rejuvenation products have been proven to be effective?

There are several active ingredients that have been clinically proven to be effective skin rejuvenators. One of the most effective treatments is vitamin A derivatives such a Retinol or Retinyl Palmitate and experts say that there is absolutely no other ingredient that can compete with the proven effects of retinoids.

Retinol is the less irritating form of Vitamin A and is considered to have quite effective rejuvenating qualities.

Retinol works by speeding up the cellular turnover rate, which allows the healthier cells to work their way up to the surface faster and by decreasing the activity of the destructive enzyme collagens.

Collagen’s job is to provide an internal support matrix for your skin.

It works kind of like a skeleton because just like our muscles pull everything tight around our bones Elastin pulls our skin tight around a matrix of collagen rods inside your dermis (the second layer of skin).

Just like your body couldn’t stand without bones, your skin needs this collagen matrix or it falls flat. Gravity does the rest by pulling everything down.

Our problems begin at around 18 to 20 when our body’s collagen production starts to decrease by 1% (or more) every year! And things get worse with time.

Let’s take a look at what you can do to see younger skin

Vitamin A can help diminish the depth of wrinkles. It puffs up the skin and attracts moisture to the area to which it's applied.

This moisture not only helps to flush out impurities, but helps the skin to be more hydrated, soft, and supple. Retinol is also able to facilitate the production of collagen and prevent its breakdown, enabling them to work deep in the layers of the skin.

Can you picture that feeling?

You catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror that stops you in your tracks…

You walk up and lean in close to the mirror surprised to see tighter younger skin… and a small smile sneaks onto your face…

As if to make sure what you see is real, you touch your face… and what your fingers feel is plush… luxurious…

You feel beautiful – and it shows in everything you do…

Your confidence is up… you smile more -

You’re more outgoing… And your day’s a little more fun…

So… be sure that every night after cleansing, exfoliating and freshening, and before moisturising, you’re applying your vitamin A!

Effectively, we’re starving our skin of needed vitamins.  Just as we take a multivitamin supplement daily to help our diet do what it needs to do with our body, we need to apply vitamins daily to our facial skin.
