Key Ingredients to use for anti aging benefits

Dr. Nivedita Dadu June 15, 2024

So as we age, our skin undergoes multiple changes, such as appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and even loss of elasticity. All these signs of aging are very stressful for many individuals, thus today we have brought a list of the right ingredients, which will help effectively in combating aging. Incorporate these ingredients in your skincare for optimal and efficient results.

Ingredients That You Must Incorporate in Your Skincare:

  • Retinoids (Retinol, Retinyl Palmitate, Tretinoin)

Retinoid is one of the most effective key ingredients for combating aging. They are basically derivatives of Vitamin A. It helps greatly in anti-aging by stimulating collagen production and thus leading to reduction in visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. Apart from this Retinoids also promote shedding of old skin cells and growth of new skin cells for improving skin texture and tone. Retinoids also help in reducing hyperpigmentation over long run

  • Vitamin C

Another ingredient in our list is Vitamin C. It is basically a potent antioxidant that helps in shielding our skin from damage and hence early signs of ageing. IT also brightens our skin and reduces the visibility of dark spots and provides a good complexion. Apart from this Vitamin C also protects our skin from UV rays and pollution.

  • Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is another very  popular and effective ingredient which helps greatly in combating signs of aging by hydrating the skin and keeping it soft and supple for its self rjuvenation. It offers deep hydration and provides intense moisture which leads to plumping the skin and reduces the visibility of early signs of ageing. Not only this, Hyaluronic Acid also improves skin barrier functioning and enhances the elasticity of skin.

  • Peptides

Another very interesting and effective ingredient is Peptides. They are basically chains of Amino Acids that are building blocks of proteins like collagen and elastin in the skin. It also boosts collagen production and elastin remodelling in the skin, improves skin barrier and promotes healing by repairing the damaged skin.

  • Niacinamide

Last but not the least ingredient in our today's list Niacinamide, and it is basically a form of Vitamin B3 and widely known for its anti-inflammatory and skin soothing properties. It helps in improving skin elasticity, minimizing pores and reducing redness and blotchiness in skin. Apart from all these, niacinamide also helps in even toning your skin texture.

How to Incorporate These Ingredients:

  • Retinoids: Start retinoids with lower concentration, which will allow your skin to settle with it and also apply it at night because retinoids lead to sun sensitivity followed by sunscreen application in morning
  • Vitamin C: Use Vitamin C in the morning before applying sunscreen as it will advance skin's defense against the pollution and UV rays.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: Opt for hyaluronic acid serum in your daily skin care both day and night. Apply it after cleansing, as it helps in locking moisturizer in skin.
  • Peptides: Choose peptides based serums and moisturizers and apply them twice a day for optimal results.
  • Niacinamide: Use niacinamide serum or cream in your morning and night skin care routine. The best part about niacinamide is that it is compatible with most other skin care ingredients.

Incorporating all these skincare ingredients in your daily skincare routine will help greatly in improving the health of your skin and combating against signs of aging. Always remember, consistency is the key for optimal results of these ingredients. Also, it's very important to consult a qualified dermatologist for personalized care and what ingredients to incorporate for the best benefit for one’s skin type and concern. Also many ingredients cannot be used during lactation and pregnancy and hence it needs to be avoided and should not be used without doctor’s recommendation.
