In the beauty industry, brands and businesses alike make promises and claims to customers that seem virtually unrealistic. “This product will get rid of sunspots. This product will make you look younger.” However, although some of the products being advertised in beauty magazines and blogs won’t really do anything for your skin and overall health, there are definitely some added benefits of using anti-aging skincare products. When shopping for an anti-aging skincare product, look for the following three ingredients:
1. AHA and BHA When shopping for an anti-aging skincare product look for a product that either has AHA or BHA in it. AHA is ideal for helping treat sun damaged skin because it has binding properties that help to rejuvenate your skin and replenish your skins natural collagen. BHA on the other hand is an ideal treatment for those who are suffering from pigment issues like redness and irritation. Depending on your skincare concerns, look for a product that has either one of these ingredients in it.
2. Retinol Retinol can be either prescribed to individuals through a dermatoloigst or it can be found in many anti-aging creams and serums. Retinol is a fast acting and effective ingredient that is used to target fine lines and wrinkles in order to offer you a smoother and younger looking complexion. Just make sure that when using a product that contains retinol that you stay out of the sun because it can cause sun sensitivity.
3. Vitamin E Many skincare products will advertise that they contain Vitamin E. And although the thought of having any vitamin in your skincare product can sound beneficial, it’s important to really understand why. Vitamin E works to protect your skin against any damage to your skin membranes and collagen.
