5 Anti-Aging Ingredients You Should Know About

5 anti-aging ingredients you should know aboutThe anti-aging sector of the skincare industry has seen huge scientific advancements in recent years. Nearly every product boasts about some difficult-to-pronounce compound it claims will work wonders for your skin – but who knows what these “miracle” ingredients really do? Here are five ingredients to check out if you’re interested in anti-aging products and why they work:

  1. AHAs. Alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic, lactic & citric acids, exfoliate dead skin cells to reveal fresher skin underneath while stimulating collagen growth. Try: Kinerase Instant Radiance Facial Peel
  2. Retinoids. These ingredients are called tretinoin by prescription and retinol in most over the counter products. They are derived from vitamin A and have a clinically proven history of reversing sun damage and stimulating collagen by increasing the rate of cell turnover. Try: Shiseido Benefiance Pure Retinol Revitalizing Face Mask
  3. Kinetin. An amazingly effective moisturizer that plumps skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Try: Kinerase Intensive Eye Cream
  4. Vitamins C & E. Both vitamins are antioxidants, meaning they fight free radicals. When used together, they have a synergistic (check out that vocabulary!) effect that enhances their skin brightening and collagen producing properties. Try: SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic
  5. Pentapeptides. Here’s one you probably haven’t heard of: these chains of amino acids boost collagen and elastin production to reduce wrinkles without irritating skin. Try: StriVectin SD Eye Cream
