Most of us are concerned about ageing and wrinkles. Always researching or buying the best products, even though we can’t be so sure if its going to work or not. That’s why I listed some interesting ingredients found in research, very rich ingredients for an anti ageing skin care regime.
What Are Wrinkles And Its Causes:
Our skin surface has three layers known as epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue. As we get older, the dermis creates visible fibre deterioration called wrinkles. Intrinsic aging process leads to epidermal and dermal atrophy, where elastin and collagen are affected.
Besides, factors like UV skin damage and smoking and alcohol, make your skin reduce its elasticity, creating these large set wrinkles.
Also, for women who are going through menopause, literally the hormonal imbalances stimulate the aging processes like skin sagging. Not maintaining collagen levels can create more problems.
Fortunately, for the extrinsic aging prevention, antioxidants can help our skin a lot.
What Is Antioxidants:
Antioxidants can be artificial and natural substances, which protect against the cell damage created by free radicals. Free radicals are waste substances known as oxidative stress produced by cells, which harm healthy cells and body function.
