UNDERSTANDING WRINKLE PREVENTION AND ANTI-AGING INGREDIENTS
Published August 1, 2020
Wrinkles are a normal part of aging, but they can also be caused by factors like sun exposure, smoking, dehydration, and poor diet. Fortunately, there are several anti-aging ingredients that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles while keeping your skin looking youthful and healthy. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular anti-aging ingredients and how they work to prevent wrinkles.
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) exfoliate the top layer of your skin which helps to remove dead skin cells and reveal brighter, more even toned skin underneath. AHAs like glycolic, citric, and lactic help reduce wrinkles by preventing build up of dead cells on the surface of your skin which allows for better absorption of other anti-aging ingredients like retinoids or ceramides.
The SCRUB & MASK contains citric acid. It is a dual-action mask that reveals cleaner and fresher looking skin.
ANTIOXIDANTS LIKE VITAMIN C
Antioxidants help protect your skin from environmental damage caused by free radicals such as pollution or UV radiation from the sun. Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants and has been shown to help reduce wrinkles when used regularly over time as part of an overall anti-aging routine.
The C-RECOVER with pure concentrated vitamin C hydrates and retains moisture in the skin, boosting skin radiance.
The NCEF-INTENSIVE serum combines vitamin A (retinol) and vitamin C for action on skin quality like firmness and radiance and intensive correction of wrinkles.
The GLOBAL-REPAIR cream contains antioxidant minerals for long-lasting action on the signs of aging.
Ceramides are fatty molecules that help keep your skin hydrated and supple. Ceramides help to strengthen the skin’s outermost layer, which helps reduce wrinkles over time.
Filorga uses ceramides to nourish the skin and strengthen the barrier function. They are particularly recommended for dry skin. The GLOBAL-REPAIR collection is enriched with ceramides and formulated to create textures that are rich and nourishing without leaving any greasy residue.
Hyaluronic acid helps keep your skin hydrated by binding with water molecules and drawing moisture from our surroundings, which allows for better absorption of other skincare products you may be using in your routine, and prevents drying out, which leads to wrinkles over time.
The HYDRA moisturizing collection incorporates the power of hyaluronic acid in all its forms, for hydration on all levels, designed to intensely replenish the skin. This hydrating ingredient can be found in the HYDRA-HYAL SERUM, HYDRA-FILLER face cream, and HYDRA-FILLER MASK, which all contain pure hyaluronic acid to hydrate, plump, and smooth skin.
Peptides increase collagen production when applied topically, which helps with reducing fine lines and wrinkles over time as well as providing an overall smoother appearance to the complexion!
FILORGA has concentrated all the effectiveness of peptides in the core formulas of the TIME-FILLER anti-wrinkle collection to correct all types of wrinkles. The TIME-FILLER INTENSIVE serum contains plumping peptides and a relaxing peptide to fill deep wrinkles and reduce expression lines for smoother skin.
Retinol is one of three forms of vitamin A, in addition to retinal and retinoic acid. It increases collagen production in the skin, which helps reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin.
This leading active ingredient can be found in the NCEF-INTENSIVE and GLOBAL-REPAIR INTENSIVE serums. These formulas contain encapsulated retinol to provide all the benefits of this effective active ingredient while respecting the skin.
Wrinkles are an unavoidable part of aging, but they don't have to ruin your complexion! According to the Mayo Clinic, the effectiveness of the wrinkle cream depends on the ingredients. With regular use of anti-aging ingredients like AHAs, antioxidants like vitamin C, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, peptides, and retinol, you will soon notice a difference in your complexion's clarity and luminosity while reducing fine lines and wrinkles overtime!
