Where to find the best anti-ageing ingredients for firmer and younger looking skin
As you get older, you start to notice changes in your skin — and it's not just the wrinkles and fine lines that creep up on you. Your skin can also become drier, duller, and less elastic. The signs of ageing can be subtle or they can be obvious. Typically, the more obvious signs of ageing include fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, lips and forehead.
If you want your skin to look younger, it's important to understand what causes ageing.
There are two main reasons our skin ages:
Beautylux has rounded up the best anti-ageing skincare products out there so you can get your glow back fast. It is possible to minimise or even reverse some of the damage done by using skincare products with powerful anti-ageing ingredients and proven results such as matrixyl synthe 6, retinol, Vitamin C, peptides, hyaluronic acid and marine collagen.
Let's take a look at some of these ingredients found in anti-ageing skincare and why they work.
- Matrixyl synthe 6 is a peptide that stimulates collagen production to firm and smooth skin.
- Retinol is another great ingredient for firming and smoothing your complexion; it also helps with collagen production.
- Peptides help strengthen skin's natural barrier function while Hyaluronic acid helps lock in moisture.
- Vitamin C improves the skin's ability to repair itself from environmental damage.
- Marine collagen helps smooth out wrinkles and reduce puffiness around the eyes.
- Niacinamide (also known as B3) works to brighten skin tone and keep inflammation at bay, preventing acne breakouts.
Now let’s look at how they work and where these super efficacious ingredients can be found.
Matrixyl Synthe 6 is a peptide that helps to strengthen the skin's matrix by stimulating collagen production. It also has been shown to reduce wrinkles by up to 25% when applied topically. Peptides are small chains of amino acids that have been shown to reduce wrinkles by increasing collagen production within your skin cells while also improving their ability to produce elastin proteins, making them stronger. You will find this ingredient in many of the products in the Jericho Premium Collection, a prestigious results driven range that offers visible results. Matrixyl Synthe 6 can be found in the Jericho Premium Eye Gel, Jericho Premium Intensive Night Cream, Jericho Premium Active Serum, and Jericho Nourishing Night Cream, making this a complete anti aging routine for those seeking to firm and lift their face.
Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that works as an antioxidant and reduces pigmentation spots, acne scars and uneven skin tone. It also helps to promote new cell growth and increase elasticity of the skin, which helps to fight wrinkles and other signs of ageing by promoting cell renewal. You'll find retinol in the Talia Heaven's Dew Retinol & Peptides Anti-Aging Firming Cream, to instantly improve radiance, reset deep wrinkles, and improve skin tone. Beautylux Australian customers continuous come back to this product as it is hailed as one of the best natural anti-wrinkle moisturisers on the market.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that stimulates collagen production within the skin cells and improves their ability to produce elastin proteins. It also brightens dull, tired-looking skin tones by fading dark spots caused by sun damage or age spots caused by pigmentation changes in the skin like melasma or freckles. You can find a powerful dose of Vitamin C in Origani Complexion Perfection Collection and Talia Heaven's Dew Peptides & Vitamin C Anti-Ageing Firming Mask, for younger looking skin in as little as 7 minutes.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. It's a key component of skin and helps to keep it hydrated, plump, and healthy. Hyaluronic acid also plays a role in collagen production, which is essential for keeping our skin smooth and elastic. Found in both the Talia Heaven's Dew Hyaluronic Acid Glow Plumping Moisturiser and Talia Heaven's Dew Hyaluronic Acid Hydrate & Firm Mask, these are key products for super quenched skin that glows all the way to the weekend. If you are looking for hyaluronic acid fortified with one of the best natural anti-ageing ingredient like hemp seed oil, Alivio Wellness Nourishing Day Cream is your best choice.
Marine collagen is a substance that is produced by the collagen-producing cells of fish. This makes it a rich source of the amino acids that make up collagen, and it can be used in place of animal collagen for those who wish to avoid using animal products. It also helps to protect the skin from free radicals and other environmental damage. It is found across the Jericho Premium Collagen Booster and the Jericho Premium Facial Collagen Mask.
A great anti-aging all rounder in the Beautylux arsenal of products is the Talia’s Heaven’s Dew Firming Wrinkle Control Moisturiser, containing peptides and 2% Hyaluronic Acid. This is a powerful anti ageing moisturiser which improves tone and texture as well as firming up the jawline.
Anti ageing products are the best way to keep your skin looking young and healthy, and using the right ingredients are key. For best anti-ageing results explore Origani Immortajell skincare range, which is formulated with certified organic ingredients and powerful hexapeptides that mimic the amazing cell regeneration of the Immortal Jellyfish (Turritopsis Nutricula) to boost skin cell longevity, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and help cells remain younger for longer.
Some other factors that all contribute to youthful looking skin: make sure that you're drinking enough water every day. This will help your skin stay hydrated and plump up the skin cells on your face so they aren't showing signs of ageing as quickly. Next, try eating foods high in antioxidants like dark berries or green tea; these will help fight off free radicals that can damage your cells and cause ageing effects. And finally, get some exercise! The more active you are, the more oxygenated blood will flow through your body—oxygen is essential for keeping everything working properly!
