The Fountain of Youth may be the stuff of legends, but today’s anti-aging ingredients are getting us closer to the elusive elixir for eternal beauty. One easy way to ensure you’re buying the right anti-aging products is to read what’s in them!
Look for these six key anti-aging ingredients the next time you stock up on beauty products:
1. Alpha lipoic acid
ALA (alpha lipoic acid) shrinks surface imperfections and enlarged pores—leaving you with more radiant skin. Banish early signs of aging, like lines around the eyes, with Perricone MD’s Advanced Eye-Area Therapy, which is formulated with ALA to minimize puffiness and dark circles.
2. Hyaluronic acid
As we age, our natural supply of hyaluronic acid - the chemical in our body that keeps wrinkles and lines at bay – diminishes. When Mother Nature starts rationing your natural stores - beginning in your twenties with visible signs in your forties - try Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Firming Elasticity Repair to keep skin plump, firm, and hydrated.
This powerful antioxidant slows down the process of aging, giving skin a smoother texture and a more even tone. It’s also hypoallergenic, which is perfect for sensitive skin. Try Osmotics Kinetin Cellular Renewal Serum to smooth away fine lines, wrinkles, and the effects of sun damage.
Nuke aging at the core! Banish the signs of aging at the cellular level with these special polymers, created when up to 20 amino acids are bound together. Formulated with a patent-pending peptide combo, Peter Thomas Roth’s Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Crème relaxes wrinkles and produces firmer, tighter skin.
This popular anti-aging ingredient derived from Vitamin A protects and increases the skin’s collagen supply. (That’s exactly what we’ve been looking for too)! Firm up your skin with DDF Retinol Energizing Moisturizer, which renews cells while lifting and toning the skin.
6. Vitamin C
You already know Vitamin C is good for you – but do you know why? It keeps collagen strong which makes you look and feel younger! Let Osmotics Kinetin Intensive Eye Repair tackle deep wrinkles and expression lines—including crow’s feet, upper-lip lines, and brow furrows—so that you can wake up to softer, younger-looking skin.
