Top Four Performing Skincare Ingredients To Know

Doing your research before purchasing an expensive cream that promises to turn back time is essential. But can they really diminish wrinkles, repair sun damage, or lighten dark spots?

  • Look for peptides in the ingredients because these proteins signal skin cells to produce more collagen, making them ideal for firming skin and smoothing wrinkles. The best I recommend is Matrixyl and Argireline!
  • Lather on the Vitamin C. It is the best form of antioxidants that helps fight free radicals, builds collagen, speeds up cell turnover to keep skin from looking dull. Try to use a product that doesn’t contain water like a serum or gel based for it to stay more stable and effective. If you have a cream that contains water store it in the refrigerator to help preserve the vitamin C!
  • Visit your dermatologist to obtain retinols. Vitamin A’s derivative Retinol for its ability to boost collagen, reduce pigmentation, helps to fight off wrinkles.
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid is amazing when it comes to decreasing under eye circles and puffiness. Why you ask? Well it’s a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals in the cell plasma membrane due to its water-soluble properties. Plus its lipid soluble properties allows better absorption into the skin. Besides the eye it helps reduce redness and blotchiness all over the face due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore can you say bye bye to foundation. And that healthy glow comes from its ability to regulate the production of nitric oxide which controls blood flow to the skin.
