The best anti-ageing ingredients that will transform your skin – RSVP Live

Posted: July 5, 2021 at 1:47 am


In the world of skincare, we are constantly being bombarded with advertising telling us about the newest, trendiest skincare ingredients that will reverse ageing. These ingredients and products may get a lot of buzz and attention, but what are the ingredients that will really make a difference?

One important thing to remember is that theres no ingredient that can reverse signs of ageing. There are ingredients that may temporarily plump your skin to give the appearance of reducing wrinkles, but no skincare product will actually reverse the effects of ageing. These products can slow down the further signs of ageing and keep your skin looking youthful and healthy.

While a product and not a specific ingredient, SPF is key if you want to stop any further signs of ageing. If you're not using sunscreen religiously, there's just no point in wasting your time or money on any other anti-aging ingredients. It's a certifiable fact that sun exposure is one of the primary causes of all the signs of aging, from spots to wrinkles and everything in between. La Roche Posay does a full range of budget friendly SPF products, starting from 11.

Not only is Vitamin C a great antioxidant, helping to neutralise the skin-damaging free radicals caused by exposure to environmental factors such as sun and pollution, but it also interferes with the production of excess pigment in the skin, helping to fade spots and discolouration. And if all that weren't enough, it also helps to stimulate collagen production. Some people can be more sensitive to vitamin C than others and may experience some irritation, and it's also very easily rendered inactive if exposed to sun and air. Look for vitamin C products housed in dark, opaque bottles, and stash them in a cool, dark place, like a drawer. Some good budget options are The Ordinary Absorbyl Glucoside for 12.90 or La Roche Posays more expensive Vitamin C serum for 38. If you want something more high end, try the Sunday Riley Vitamin C Serum for 79, which contains a higher level of Vitamin C at 15%.

Retinol is also known as Vitamin A and its part of a larger group known as retinoids. There are many prescription and over-the-counter options, though to keep things simple, they all work essentially the same way. Because it increases the rate at which your cells turnover, retinol is a great anti-aging ingredient for targeting fine lines and sun damage. For the same reasons, it's also good for combating blemishes, so if you're dealing with adult acne, that oh-so-fun double whammy of wrinkles and pimples, this one's for you.

Retinol has also some negatives, namely that it can be very irritating for many. You can help minimise its unsightly side effects (redness, flaking) by working it into your routine gradually and sandwiching it between two layers of plain moisturiser. You also only need a pea-size amount for your entire facemore is definitely not better in this case. Because it's rendered inactive when exposed to sunlight, be sure to save it for bedtime use only. Retinol doesnt have to be pricey and there are many fans of the Inkey List Retinol , which retails for 11.45. However, many people feel that with retinol, you get what you pay for, and Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules are a higher end option that fans say gives amazing results. It retails for 110.

Collagen is one of the most important proteins in your skin, the foundation for keeping it strong and firm, like the box spring underneath a mattress. The problem is that our natural collagen production slows down as we age, and adding insult to injury, all kinds of external factors (such as sun exposure) also contribute to the breakdown of collagen.

While it makes sense that collagen would be a great anti-aging ingredient, it's not quite so simple. Topically, it's not an active ingredient that can make a big difference unless the formula is just right, meaning you may have to pay a bit more. You may also have seen lots of ingestible collagen lately; various pills and powders have flooded the market, touting all kinds of skin, hair, and nail benefits. However, it is unlikely that collagen taken orally will make it to any levels of your skin. The raved about Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream has been said by reviewers to transform their skin, however it retails at an eye watering 110 per 50ml and 195 per 100ml.
