Skincare products for women are undergoing a sea change. A greater understanding of the human body and the ability to synthesize chemicals which mimic the naturally occurring substances in the human body are both key factors in new age dermis care. A wide variety of creams, moisturizers, serums and cleansers are all part of this dermis care range.
A glance at the list of ingredients lists a whole host of ingredients that are popular anti-ageing formulations. Most of these skin care products contain chemicals like peptides, retinol, glycolic acid, etc. which claim to help combat the signs of ageing and retain youthful looks.
Peptides and Anti-Aging
Almost all of the best anti-wrinkle night creams contain peptides which help diminish, reverse and inhibit the signs of ageing. Some other ingredients commonly found in such creams are retinol and hyaluronic acid.
While hyaluronic acid helps tissues retain moisture and remain hydrated, retinol prevents the breaking down of collagen and induce new collagen production.
Glycolic and hydroxy acids are exfoliators that help in removing dead dermis cells, yet another sign of ageing. This helps close pores and gives a youthful appearance.
Diminishing Signs of Aging
Most popular skincare products contain peptides a chemical known to stimulate the production of structural proteins collagen and elastin in the body. Peptides are small molecules and by virtue of their size can easily penetrate the dermis.
Once these molecules enter the body, they influence the increased production of collagen and elastin which slows down with age. Retinol is another popular ingredient that actively stimulates collagen production while preventing the breakdown of existing collagen molecules. Skin is now more elastic, supple and firm giving an appearance of youth.
