We are always searching for the best skin care products for aging skin and unfortunately for us, there are hundreds upon hundreds of products to choose from.
The best way that I have been able to find the most effective products is by first researching ingredients. I start with ingredient research and then look for natural skin care products with those ingredients.
I love discovering new natural ingredients that turn back time. I especially love to learn about anti aging ingredients that are backed by science. Sometimes I may be a bit behind. For example, I just read a journal regarding “skin anti aging strategies” posted at The National Center for Biotechnology Information written back in 2012.
I happened upon this article while researching niacinimide, or vitamin B3, which is said to improve skin elasticity. Why was I researching skin elasticity? While my female ancestors live to be close to 100 years and seriously have very few deep wrinkles (comparatively speaking), they all have jowls; jowls that I have inherited just recently. Seems as though they just appeared one day and I am determined to find a cure. (insert laugh here)
From the article:
“It is the intention of this article to review the most important anti-aging strategies that dermatologists have nowadays in hand, including preventive measurements, cosmetological strategies, topical and systemic therapeutic agents and invasive procedures.”
It refers to some of the most effective natural ingredients or topical agents with anti-aging properties such as vitamin C, B3, and E. They are the most important antioxidants because of their ability to penetrate the skin through their small molecular weight.
Vitamin C, B3, and E are the most important antioxidants because of their small molecular weight. Clinical studies have proven that the antioxidative protection is higher with the combination of vitamins C and E than with either vitamin alone. Look for skin care products with a combination of these 2 vitamins.
Niacinimide (vitamin B3) regulates cell metabolism and regeneration and is used in 5% concentration as an anti-aging agent. In some studies, improvement of skin elasticity and pigmentations after 3 months of a topical treatment have been observed. On to natural skin care products for aging skin that contain a combination of these ingredients….
