The 4 Best Anti-Ageing Skincare Ingredients
With so many brands claiming to help your skin reverse the signs of ageing, the search for a product that works for your skin can be a confusing one. We have trimmed down some tried and tested anti-ageing ingredients that are worth investing your time and money in.
Vitamin C is legendary because it really works. It is a potent antioxidant that supports your skin’s natural regeneration process by accelerating the production of collagen and elastin. Collage and elastin are protein fibres in your skin that act as your skin’s framework to keep it plump and firm. Vitamin C comes in many forms to ensure it stays stable and effective in your skincare product. For firmer, plumper skin look for L-ascorbic acid and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate in your products. bSoul Chrono-lift Serum contains magnesium ascorbyl phosphate to promote collagen and elastin production. For firming skin and lightening of dark spots and discolouration, look for ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, found in IOMA Bright Pearl Essence.
A fan favourite for many years, thanks to its moisture-boosting properties. It plumps the skin, reduces the look of fine lines, and reduces sensitivity caused by skin dryness. Like most skincare ingredients, the type of hyaluronic acid is important. The smaller its molecule, the deeper it can penetrate to your skin, the deeper the hydration it can deliver to the different layers of your skin. bSoul Hydra Comfort Cream contains HyaCare®50, in the form of hydrolysed hyaluronic acid, that delivers hydration to the deepest derma layer of your skin.
When applied to the skin, peptides can trigger skin cells to perform specific functions such as building collagen and elastin, encouraging your skin to look younger. While research has proven that peptides can firm, soothe and hydrate your skin, to be effective, they need to exist in a well formulated, multi-ingredient product cocktail. We have a wide variety of peptides in our anti-ageing product range, IOMA Ma Crème, IOMA Flash Youth Eye Concentrate, bSoul BX Plus and bSoul Photo Sinergy just to name a few.
Ceramides are a type of lipids (fats) naturally found in your skin that play an important role In forming a protective layer that reduces water loss from your skin. It also helps to protect your skin against long term damage from pollution and the environment. Your skin’s natural ceramides deplete with age, sun damage and use of harsh cleansers, causing drier and rougher skin. Thus, replenishing ceramides with skincare products is important. Ceramides are found in IOMA Crème Sublime.
