Achieving plump, firm, young-looking skin is the goal of many of us in our skincare routines. However, not every product that promises anti-aging benefits genuinely contains effective ingredients. It helps to know what anti-aging ingredients really work, and to look for products that contain those prized components.
Look For These Top Anti-Aging Ingredients
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which means that it prevents free radical damage to your skin, therefore preventing visible skin aging. This powerhouse ingredient also has a host of other benefits. It can reverse some of the visible effects of sun damage and lighten/prevent brown spots, which can be one of the top signs of skin aging, even before wrinkles start to deepen. It can also help to stimulate collagen production and encourage the regeneration of new skin cells.
Hyaluronic Acid: Dehydration and dryness can make skin look much older than it actually is. When shopping for anti-aging ingredients, hyaluronic acid should be at the top of your list. This powerful humectant has the ability to attract 1000 times its own weight in water to the upper layers of your skin. The plumping and smoothing effect of adequate hydration is one of the keys to getting that naturally young and luminous complexion.
Peptides: Peptides are chains of amino acids that have a variety of effects on the skin, from encouraging cell communication (which stimulates cell healing and regeneration), to relaxing the muscles under the skin, reducing the look of deep wrinkles. These cutting-edge anti-aging ingredients are the ones to keep an eye on in the next few years, as they promise to be game-changers in anti-aging skincare.
Antioxidants: In addition to Vitamin C, other antioxidants such as vitamins A, B, and E, as well as various plant extracts, all have positive anti-aging effects. They scavenge free radicals, protecting skin against damage, and they also have benefits such as promoting cell regeneration, encouraging faster cell turnover, and protecting and moisturizing the skin.
Janssen Cosmetics harnesses scientifically-proven anti-aging ingredients to provide gentle but effective anti-aging formulations. Some of our favorite anti-aging products include:
Trifolia Face Mask
This antioxidant-rich face mask contains a spectrum of botanical extracts and vitamins to nourish the skin for a smoother, firmer, and more radiant complexion. Fermented black tea contains a higher level of bioavailable nutrients and active substances than non-fermented tea. Red clover extract and vitamin E contain potent plant antioxidants, while macadamia oil and bisabolol protect and soften skin.
De-Contract Serum Gel
Our De-Contract Serum Gel is perfect for firming sagging skin and diminishing the depth of wrinkles. With a plant-derived oligopeptide that blocks neurotransmitters deep in the skin, the surface of the skin is relaxed and appearance of wrinkles decreased. Instead of opting for injectables, try this gel instead!
These smooth gel capsules are aptly named Isoflavonia Relief, as they contain a potent concentration of antioxidant isoflavones. These extracts from soy, ginseng, centella asiatica, grape seed, and other beneficial botanicals help to stimulate collagen production, protect against free radicals, and improve blood circulation and the skin’s natural regenerative abilities.
