Some research-proven ingredients to look for in the skin products you choose include:
Retinol: considered the gold standard of effective topical treatments. Also available as prescription strength Retin-A, retinol is an ingredient in myriad over-the-counter products. It ramps up cell turnover in the top layers of the skin, decreasing wrinkles and improving skin tone.
Antioxidants: fight cell damage from free radicals, which are produced when skin is exposed to sunlight and some chemicals. Antioxidants can make skin firmer and more radiant. Many topical creams contain extracts of ingredients such as green tea and pomegranate.
Peptides: chains of amino acids act as signaling molecules in cells, telling them to heal, renew and slough away. They soften crow’s feet by slowing the contraction of tiny muscles around the eyes.
Alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs): including glycolic, lactic, citric and mandelic acids, these can help peel away the top layers of the skin to erase fine lines.
