The best anti aging serum can penetrate your skin quickly (due to their relatively large molecule size). Keep in mind that, they must be applied prior to your first moisturizer. Topical antioxidants, retinol, glycolic acid, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, topical hydroxyl acids, some other active ingredients and moisturizing compounds are the most important elements in a high quality anti-aging serum. Some of these agents may also offer some of the benefits listed here.
Squalane is derived from the milk of the sheep. It has been shown to have sun protection, healing and skin tightening benefits. It is naturally occurring so it is safe and easy to find. Most skin care companies include squalane as an ingredient. But, it is best to check with the manufacturer when choosing a product containing this ingredient as it is “not good for sensitive skin”. There are some products that use squalane without adding anything else to the product.
Phytessence Wakame is a sea kelp that enhances skin cell turnover, improves firmness and elasticity, reduces wrinkles, reduces age spots and has multiple signs of positive effects on skin aging. It reduces wrinkles by promoting smoothness. It keeps the skin from sagging due to gravity. It evens out skin texture and tightens fine lines and wrinkles. So, it reduces wrinkles, fine lines and firm skin, leaving it feeling smooth and soft.
Hyaluronic Acid hydrates and smoothes to provide an even complexion. This provides the best anti-aging skin care routine for people with dry skin because it increases moisture levels and reduces wrinkles, sagging and drooping. Dry skin can form flaky patches and wrinkles. For those with older skin, hyaluronic acid improves the skin’s moisture retention.
Retinol is also included in some anti-wrinkle serums, even though it has not been scientifically proven to prevent or reverse wrinkles. It does, however, reduce deep wrinkles by increasing collagen.
In clinical trials, it was shown to significantly reduce wrinkle depth. It also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Clinical studies have shown that retinol slows down the visible signs of aging by more than 40%, compared to a non-retinol cream.
A good anti-aging serum should include ingredients that help your body to naturally produce hyaluronic acid and collagen. If you do not choose a product that contains these two ingredients, the other ingredients must act as natural moisturizers to replenish your face.
Your hydrating regimen should not end with moisturizer, especially if you are using a good anti-wrinkle cream. Make sure that your daily skincare ritual should include cleanser, toner and moisturizer.
