Top 4 Organic Skincare Ingredients that Minimize Wrinkles
How do wrinkles form?
The physical changes our skin goes through as we get older make us more susceptible to developing fine lines and wrinkles.
Wrinkles and fine lines develop as the skin’s deep layers become looser, and the outer layer loses its elasticity and becomes dryer. This loss of structure may cause the skin to fold over on top of itself, forming a wrinkle. Repeated facial expressions – like laughing, frowning and squinting – may also encourage lines to develop.
If you’ve got some wrinkles – you’ve earned them and you should love them! Not only is it important for us to love the skin we’re in, there is no way to completely get rid of wrinkles and some of the cosmetic procedures designed to reduce them are high on risk and expense.
How to minimize wrinkles
Rest assured that some steps you can take now will reduce the chances of those wrinkles getting deeper and new wrinkles forming. Just like exercising and eating a balanced diet, taking care of your skin is an investment in your future that will pay priceless dividends.
Here are our top 4 organic ingredients that you should look out for in your skin care products when looking to minimize wrinkles:
- Essential fatty acids – every cell in our bodies depends on fatty acids for structure, hormone production, and ‘water-proofing’ cell membranes. In skincare, it’s this water-proofing that improves our skin’s function as a protective barrier and helps to retain the moisture necessary for healthy, beautiful skin. High-oleic sunflower oil contains extremely high levels of these barrier-improving fatty acids
- Antioxidants – found naturally in many fruits and vegetables, antioxidants are used in skincare products to reduce the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are super-reactive molecules that are formed by exposure to UV radiation, chemicals, medications and sometimes naturally. Skin cells are damaged when they’re exposed to these free radicals, leading to structural changes in the skin’s layers. Antioxidants, like Vitamins C and E, react with free radicals and take away their capacity to do more damage.
- Aloe vera – this soothing plant has been shown to have an effect on skin cells’ protein synthesis and cell division, according to a study published by Japanese scientists. Cells that are more efficient at making proteins, like collagen and elastin, and which can regenerate more proficiently will help skin look and feel younger
- Glycolic acid – an extraordinary exfoliating agent, glycolic acid has been shown to safely and gently reduce the signs of aging by sloughing off dead skin cells and smoothing the skin’s texture
While ingredients that minimize wrinkles are important, its not effective if they are not properly formulated, the products used in the right skin care steps, and the products are designed work together to benefit the skin. For example, delivery and use of nutrients in the ingredients can be impeded if the skin isn’t cleansed and gently exfoliated before the products containing the wrinkle fighting ingredients are applied. The products must also work together and create a powerful harmony to help the skin be at its best
