Today’s anti-ageing cosmeceuticals can indeed turn back the clock. You simply need to know what to look for.
Number one age-buster in terms of prevention is undoubtedly sunscreen and the Heliocare products in particular are the foremost choice of dermatologists. The Heliocare 360° range offers the most complete coverage spectrum against UVB, UVA, IR-A and visible light as well as intense antioxidant protection with Fernblock FC. In addition, the products help repair damage to cellular and mitochondrial DNA due to the presence of roxisomes.
For your skincare regimen, look out for these research-proven ingredients:
Retinol – it’s the gold standard in anti-ageing products, increasing skin cell turnover and stimulating collagen synthesis.
C – is not only necessary for
collagen production and maintenance, but it’s also a potent antioxidant that
can neutralise free radicals in the skin:
Peptides – These chains of amino acids act as signalling molecules in cells, telling them to heal, renew and slough away.
Glycolic Acid – exfoliates and increases cell turnover to clarify pores, refine skin texture and improve skin tone.
Some ingredients in anti-ageing products should be avoided experts say. These include petroleum-based products such as mineral oil, paraffin and propylene glycol.
With the right products and a dedicated skin care regime, we can all keep age at bay.
