Ingredients For Combating Aging Skin

Human skin is an amazing organ, capable of being revitalized with the use of the right ingredients. Over the years, people have used a variety of products ranging from milk to honey to change the tone and texture of their skin. There are some proven ingredients that can reverse the effects of aging on your skin.

Among these are anti-oxidants that work by countering ‘free radicals’ that harm an individual’s DNA and increase signs of aging. Free radicals can also lead to circles under the eyes, dull skin, and much more. Here are some important ingredients that one can include in their cosmetic products to make them more effective at countering the effects of aging on the skin.

Green Tea Extract

Green tea is a popular health drink that has been used for generations for a variety of health purposes. Much of Green tea’s health benefits come from nutrients known as polyphenols, which fight free radicals in the body. These nutrients can help repair sun damage on the skin and can even shield the individual from getting skin cancer. Typically, green tea extracts can be found within sunscreen creams to help increase protection from the harmful effects of the sun. Green tea extracts are also used in skin care products, such as lotions and creams to combat the effects of aging.

Retinol also helps to remove patches from the skin and give it a healthy tone. Many skin care products have retinol as one of the ingredients. Dermatologists advise that the best way to use retinol is to apply it at night and then use a moisturizer and sunscreen the following day. This is because if you expose retinol to sunlight, there is a danger that your skin might become dry and scaly.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is not just used to promote the overall health of the body but can also be used to help keep skin strong and flexible. Vitamin C helps to boost collagen and helps to reduce the formation of wrinkles and scars. Vitamin C is also often found in skin care products, such as creams and lotions.
