The Best anti-Aging Skincare Ingredients to Look for ...

By Anna

The best anti-aging skincare ingredients will help your skin look youthful and fresh, but are also easy to find in traditional skincare products. Everyone wants to stay forever young, unfortunately that is not something that we can help you with. What we can do is list some amazing ingredients found in most face creams and let you know what these can do for you. The best part is many of these top anti-aging skincare ingredients can be found in items in your house right now!

1 Parabens

Most anti-aging face creams will have parabens in them. We are going to be honest with you here. Parabens are not going to have an impact on your skin. Their impact will be on the lifespan of the anti-aging face cream. Basically, parabens will ensure that the product does not expire. This is why natural products tend to have expiry dates that will hit sooner. This isn't one of the best anti-aging ingredients for your skin, but will help your products last longer.

2 Silicone and Alcohols

The job of these will be very much the same. Silicone and alcohols will ensure that you are able to spread the anti-aging face cream over your face a little bit easier. The alcohols which tend to be used in anti-aging face creams will likely be made from palm oil or coconut oil. It is unlikely it will be ethanol. If it is, then give that face cream a wide berth! If you have sensitive skin, you may experience dryness so be cautious.

3 Resveratrol

This is an antioxidant. That means that it helps to protect the skin by getting rid of those annoying free radicals. Basically, resveratrol will help to protect the skin against sun damage and the negative effects of environmental toxins. Reseveratrol will also speed up the rate of production of collagen within your skin. This will ensure that your skin appears nice and youthful. This one is very important as the speed in which your collagen is produced is going to affect the elasticity of your skin!

4 Grape Seed

Another antioxidant here. Once again, the job of this antioxidant is to protect your skin from free radical damage. Grape seed has an additional ‘bonus’ on top of this. It is also known for its ability to combat wrinkles. In fact, many people claim that grape seed is one of the best ways in which you can keep lines from forming on your face.

5 Curcuminoids

These are sourced from turmeric (yes, the spice). Curcuminoids are known for their ability to combat inflammation. You may think that you really do not need this in an anti-aging cream, but you do. In fact, it is important. When your skin is exposed to sunlight, it produces melanin, which can cause age spots on your face. Curcuminoids help with this by dealing with chronic inflammation, which can make the skin look far, far older than it actually is! Turmeric has been proven to work in healing many ailments and has been used in ancient South Indian healing for thousands of years so give it a try today.

6 Ceramides

Many people compare ceramides to a glue. This is because they are essentially just that. Ceramides are what hold your skin cells together. As you get older, your body starts to produce fewer and fewer ceramides which can make you look rather abysmal. This often happens if you are using the wrong skin care products, live in a hot or very dry environment. Basically, by putting ceramides on your skin, you will be replenishing the body’s supply of healthy binding cells. This should, hopefully, help your skin look a bit more youthful!

Remember; always read the ingredients on the skin care cream packaging to know what you are putting on yourself, and if you see any sign of allergies contact a doctor immediately!
