What should anti-wrinkle creams contain?
The best anti-wrinkle creams contain peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid of different molecular sizes that work in synergy to neutralize the skin aging process.
It has been scientifically proven that peptides stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and fibronectin through weekly application. Peptides can also delay aging because some of them also possess noticeable antiglycation activity.
Hyaluronic acid works not only on skin hydration but also reduction of the visibility of wrinkles.
Antioxidants help to neutralize and prevent the formation of oxidative skin stress that causes damage and aging.
The holy grail and recommendation in the choice of anti-age care are peptides. Their effectiveness in cosmetics has been scientifically proven.
In maintaining youthful skin, the most important is proper and regular facial care. It is also important to choose the correct care, depending on the skin type and get acquainted with the benefits of using different cosmetic products e.g. AHA and BHA acid-based serums. Serums are also more concentrated than creams, act independently, but also enhance and accelerate the action of the cream itself.
The effect of the product also depends on the concentration of the active ingredients as well as their combination in the product.
Looking for creams with peptides
The holy grail and recommendation in the choice of anti-age care are peptides. Their effectiveness in cosmetics has been scientifically proven. Although they are inherently highly potent, they are best at synergy with other active ingredients. Then their strength completely comes forward.
The combination of peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, enables neutralization in the process of oxidative skin stress formation – causing damage and aging, as well as long-lasting and deep hydration. We know that skin hydration is the first step in preventing aging and keeping the skin young. Our body is 70% water. The main sign of skin aging is dehydration, and in some cases its cause.
Peptide is a small fragment of protein, i.e. several amino acids associated with peptide binding. The skin is essentially built from peptides. Peptides are short chains of amino-acids that affect protein synthesis, and their basic property is easy absorption into tissues.
They act on the synthesis of collagen, proteins, elastin and hyaluronic acid present in the skin. They have an impact on tissue building and prevention of aging because they revitalize and regenerate tissue.
Part of the process of healing tissue damage involves increasing collagen production. When the tissue is damaged, it must be replaced by new skin tissue. Thus, a peptide that can stimulate healing can also increase collagen in the skin.
As we get older, not only do we lose collagen, but the existing collagen becomes damaged (e.g. glycolysis). Also, the quality of newly synthesized collagen declines. Its structure is not so orderly and organized (so the skin is not smooth).
Hyaluronic acid “fills in” wrinkles
You have heard of hyaluronan many times. After Botox, hyaluronan became an IT substance for filling wrinkles in the offices of plastic surgeons, as well as dentists. But you do not have to add it to your skin through a needle.
Hyaluronic acid is an indispensable addition when restoring skin and filling wrinkles because it attracts water and soaks skin cells by increasing their volume. Thus, micro cracks formed in the surface layer of the skin are closed when the skin is dehydrated and consequently more exposed to the aggressive action of the sun and cold, including the aging process.
For proper efficient application of hyaluronic acid in skin care preparations it is essential that the preparation contains hyaluronic acid of different molecular sizes (high and low molecular level). The aim of the lower molecules (small molecules) of hyaluronic acid is to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, while the higher molecules (large molecules) make the skin resistant to external factors. Hyaluronic acid not only acts on skin hydration, but also reduces the visibility of wrinkles.
The importance of antioxidants in skin care
Also, in the preservation of youthful skin, the role of antioxidants in the product is of great importance. Antioxidants are nutrients in the form of vitamins and minerals that protect the skin from free radicals – molecules that damage collagen and consequently reduce skin elasticity.
Antioxidants deactivate free radicals before they attack cells. They help to neutralize this process, as they prevent the formation of oxidative skin stress that causes skin damage and aging. They are real guardians of youth. Antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin A, green tea extract and many others work to save and protect the skin from external stressors and therefore it is important to have them as the active ingredient in anti-age products.
As a true anti-age multitasker, which is formulated with the intention to meet the above criteria is APRIVE AgeLess regenerating peptide cream.
AgeLess contains active ingredients in adequate concentrations (peptide complex, hyaluronic acid of two molecular sizes, antioxidants and other revitalizing and soothing active ingredients) and acts to prevent and reduce the visibility of wrinkles, promotes hydration, strength, volume and elasticity of the skin, and is formulated without: silicone, parabens, dyes, synthetic odors, alcohol, mineral oils, sulphates, phthalates, formaldehyde, GMO, PEGs, TEA and DEA. No ingredients of animal origin. Not tested on animals.
