As time passes, it is inevitable your skin will change. You may start to notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or that your skin is not as plump as it used to be. Dark spots, fine lines and other signs of aging don’t happen overnight, they form over time and can be caused by multiple factors including environmental aggressors. Although it is completely normal you can certainly act early to slow down the skin’s aging process.
When searching for products and ingredients to combat the first signs of aging, you should look for items that have brightening, moisturizing and soothing properties.
We know that this search can be difficult with countless products and ingredients on the market. We’ve made things easier for you and narrowed down which products and ingredients work best for early aging skin.
There’s no better time than now to prevent early signs of aging skin. Down the road, your skin will thank you for the extra nourishment you treated it with early in your skin care journey.
With that said, here are our top three ingredients to combat aging skin:
Vitamin C is often referred to as the gold standard of anti-aging. This ingredient is known for its ability to do so much for all skin types, from oily to sensitive skin.
So, why is Vitamin C so popular in skin care? Vitamin C is an antioxidant that addresses multiple skin concerns. To start Vitamin C brightens, tones and tightens the appearance of skin helping to maintain firmness and radiance. It also works to ensure that your skin is smooth, even and hydrated to improve tone and texture. In addition, Vitamin C defends against environmental aggressors that contribute to aging skin including sun damage.
Over time, your skin changes, and you may still be dealing with skin concerns from the past, such as acne scarring, dark spots or rough skin texture. On top of addressing the early signs of aging skin, Vitamin C also works to reduce the appearance of discoloration and roughness.
Vitamin C is undoubtedly a holy grail skin ingredient with its ability to combat multiple early signs of aging and other skin concerns, like dark spots and textured skin. The skin is left looking lifted and plump.
The ingredient itself is extremely versatile because of its ability to do so much for the skin. Its versatility also lies in its ability to be in almost every type of skin care product: cleansers, toners, serums and moisturizers. This is great because it makes it very easy to reap the benefits of Vitamin C in one or more products in your routine. This makes integrating Vitamin C into your skin care routine simple for both day and night use.
Our Vitamin C Collection is one of our most popular collections. Our Vitamin C Cleanser makes washing your face invigorating. Our Vitamin C Toner is hydrating, cooling and preps the skin for the rest of your products. Our best selling Vitamin C Serum is where Vitamin C is most potent, brightening and lightening the skin. And lastly, our Vitamin C Moisturizer provides moisture while keeping the skin tone bright and even to finish off your youth restoring skin care routine.
With consistent use, Vitamin C can fade the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brighten the skin and firm the skins overall look. With the help of Vitamin C, your skin can be left youthful, radiant and glowing.
Hyaluronic Acid, which is also known as HA, is a naturally occurring molecule found in our bodies. It works to bind water, and acts as a lubricant for the joints as well as for your skin, where most of it is found.
As you age, HA begins to naturally diminish, which can cause the skin to sag and wrinkle. To slow this aging process, its best to get into the habit of replenishing your HA count in your skin.
Think of Hyaluronic Acid like a drink of water for the skin. It has the amazing ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it an extremely replenishing and moisturizing skin care ingredient. It also can increase skin elasticity and slow collagen loss, which contributes to your skin looking firmer and more youthful.
Because of its moisturizing properties, it delivers deep nourishment to the skin leaving the skin looking plumper and refreshed. This is an ideal ingredient for those with dry skin since it can minimize flakiness as well as those with sensitive skin. It’s a gentle, natural ingredient that works well for all skin types.
Like Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid is a versatile ingredient because it can be found in multiple skin care products, such as serums, moisturizers and even face masks for an extra amount of moisture.
We highly recommend using it in serum form, since that’s where Hyaluronic Acid is most potent. Our Hyaluronic Acid Serum soothes dry, dehydrated and flaky skin with its moisturizing and nourishing properties. It’s combined with Vitamin C, making it the ultimate skin care product to combat the early stages of aging skin.
If you choose to integrate this into your skin care routine, you’ll find your skin to be soothed and smoothed as it fades the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It makes for a great anti-aging ingredient since it’s lightweight, yet powerful abilities make the skin look younger and plumper.
Niacinamide is most commonly known for its ability to help with breakouts and blemishes. This ingredient works to reduce redness and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation left behind by acne.
However, Niacinamide also has great anti-aging benefits including strengthening the skin’s protective barrier by defending it from external factors that can cause aging concerns. In addition, it reduces hyperpigmentation on the skin by brightening discoloration, age spots and sun spots over time.
Niacinamide works great for all skin types but is another ingredient that is particularly good for those with dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin. Our Niacinamide Serum reduces sensitivity and redness while also minimizing wrinkles and fine lines for healthy skin. It also includes Hyaluronic Acid in it, incorporating even more anti-aging benefits.
Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide are all nourishing ingredients you’ll feel comfortable implementing into your anti-aging skin care routine. Most importantly, you’ll feel great knowing that the products you’re using can reap countless benefits for your skin.
