In this post we will know more about anti-aging creams, their basic ingredients and use types.
What is antiaging cream?
Anti-aging cream is a solution of moisturiser and active medicinal ingredients. This skin care product makes you feel younger by reducing wrinkles, frown lines, blemishes, pigmentation changes, discolorations and other environment caused diseases. Moreover, it helps curing comprehensive range of photo-aging including skin redness, discolorations, brown pigmentations, abnormal skin growths, poor skin textures etc.
What are they made up of?
Anti-aging creams have key ingredients as compared to conventional moisturizers. Let us see their types and uses.
Retinol – used to reduce fine lines and pores.
Epidermal Growth factor – It is made up of 53 amino acids. These components help stimulating cell renewal and Collagen production in the skin. Thus it enhances skin elasticity and structure. Research suggests that Epidermal Growth factors reduce fine lines, wrinkles and unwanted skin-sagging.
Hydroxy acids – These are of two types – Alpha and Beta. These act as chemical peels. Hydroxy acids dissolve intra-cellular glue that tightens the dead cell together. Regular use of this can expedite the exfoliation process (i.e. of dead upper layer of skin cells). Thus newer skin cells get exposed and you get a new appearance.
Peptides – generally Argireline, Matryxil, and copper peptides are popular form used in cream
Anti-oxidants – protect skin cells against the harmful effect of free radicals
Sunscreens – Most of the quality anti-aging cream contain sunscreen lotion. These help against UVA radiation and prevent aging effects like wrinkles.
Thus a good quality anti-aging product does contain balanced ingredients for maximum use. Read the product label before you buy one for yourself.
