1. Hyaluronic Acid

Hylaronic acid is one of the best ingredients to ensure that you have soft, moisturized skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring sugar in our bodies, which we tend to lose around the age of 20. This sugar acts like a sponge as it draws water and traps it in the skin. It not only moisturizes your skin, but also helps your skin attract moisture from the environment to replenish itself. It keeps your skin smooth and plump. To get the best results, apply hyaluronic acid on slightly damp skin.

2. Vitamin C

Citric fruits aren’t your only source of vitamin C. Getting your hands on a vitamin C serum can provide your skin with tons of antioxidants! It can protect your skin from free radicals and sun damage. The potent antioxidant also helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, correct dark spots and is great for pigmented or scarred skin. Moreover, it helps regenerate collagen to boost skin health.

3. Retinol

Everyone is familiar with this ingredient – but here’s why dermatologists love it. Known as vitamin A, it’s one of the top ingredients found in anti-wrinkle serums and natural anti-aging products. It helps to speed up skin regeneration and exfoliation, and targets fine lines, wrinkles, acne, pigmentation, scars, and what not. In other words, retinol is a life saver! Use a pea-sized amount of this awesome natural retinol face cream nightly!

4. Ceramides

Your skin barrier (the topmost layer) is responsible for keeping all the irritations at bay. Ceramides are naturally present in this layer and are super important in maintaining the skin’s natural protective barrier, keeping it hydrated, protected, and sealed from environmental damage. Ceramides help to make your skin strong, preventing the formation of conditions like dryness and eczema. Moreover, your skin ages due to loss of hydration and moisture over time. Providing your skin with a good supply of ceramides can help lock in moisture, making it appear plump and young.

5. Jojoba Oil

Found in the best natural anti aging products, this non-comedogenic oil soothes and moisturizes the skin. Packed with vitamin E, jojoba oil helps keep breakouts at bay and eases inflammation. It is also packed with hydrating properties that preventdryness. Plus, it’s also an antioxidant. Amazing, right?

6. Alpha Hydroxy Acids

Alpha hydroxy acids, commonly known as AHAs, include citric, lactic, and glycolic acids. This highly potent anti-aging ingredient is an effective exfoliation product as it helps remove dead skin. Using anti-aging skin products containing AHA can better prepare your skin to absorb other skincare products. As a result, this helps stimulate the growth of smooth and even skin. Moreover, AHAs have shown promising results when it comes to reducing wrinkles and fine lines.

7. Niacinamide

Niacinamide is a powerful form of vitamin B3 that is quite effective at combating damage from free radicals, thereby preventing acne and brightening dark spots. Some research studies also concluded that niacinamide helps those with sensitive skin by brightening their skin with minimum side effects. Even though your dermatologist can’t prescribe you a niacinamide product, this ingredient is included in many other topical products.

8. Collagen

Collagen is one of the most vital proteins that your skin naturally contains; it is the foundation that keeps your skin strong and intact.  A major concern is that as your body ages, the natural collagen production of your skin slows down drastically. This exposes your skin to various damaging external factors, including sun exposure and free radicals. Therefore, it makes sense that collagen is a great anti-aging ingredient!

9. Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that naturally occurs in the body. CoQ10 helps maintain collagen levels within the skin cells, ensuring that your skin remains tight and plump. Therefore, CoQ10 products help give your smoother skin while preventing the occurrence of wrinkles.

Since CoQ10 is an antioxidant, it protects your skin from suffering any damage at the hands of free radicals created by sun and pollution, preventing the occurrence of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.

10. Green Tea

Extracted from the camellia sinensis plant, green tea leaves contain polyphenols. These compounds contain both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. While the anti-inflammatory properties of green tea help combat redness and irritation, the antioxidants fight against free radicals, reducing signs of aging.

Green tea contains another powerful antioxidant known as catechin epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).This amazing antioxidant decreases the effect of free radicals on your skin, helping your cells repair themselves while protecting your skin from premature aging.

I started incorporating hyaluronic acid into my skincare routine and it has changed the dexterity of my skin so much! I feel like it’s actually getting adequately moisturized every day. It used to be so dry all the time.
