Fine lines and wrinkles are things that concern pretty much every woman. And while they seem to crop up overnight, there are some signs you can look for, and a few things you can do to keep them at bay.
Our skin naturally begins to thin and lose elastin and collagen as we age. Collagen and elastin are important because they are responsible for the structure of the skin, keeping it smooth, firm and pliable.
Once we start to lose them, our skin starts to droop and we begin to see fine lines and wrinkles develop. How severe they are depends a lot of factors; like skin type, genetics and the environment (sun exposure is one of the main causes of premature aging, so make sure you slather on that sunscreen!) Even every day movements like smiling, laughing or frowning can contribute.
While fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, that doesn’t mean you have to go down without a fight. When it comes to skincare, there are some ingredients you can look for to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles.
Here are some of our favorite wrinkle-busting ingredients and products, each available right here at BasharaCare:
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which means it can protect the skin from free radical damage caused by the environment. Phyto-C Supreme Serum is packed to the brim with vitamin C and will keep your skin protected against sun damage, keeping hyperpigmentation and fine lines at bay. It will also increase collagen production, which will help smooth out scars and even stretch marks. Use this serum all over your face, neck and chest for tighter, more even, younger looking skin.
Hyaluronic Acid: While the name might sound scary, hyaluronic acid is an ultra-gentle, yet ultra-potent anti-wrinkle ingredient. It works by binding moisture to the skin, keeping it plump and supple. Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler DayCream uses hyaluronic acid to smooth wrinkles from within. It also provides a great base for makeup and UVA protection, making it a great option for daytime.
Caffeine: The skin around your eyes is incredibly thin and is usually where fine lines pop up first. Caffeine can help tighten and plump up the skin, making it fantastic for getting rid of puffy, tired eyes and dark circles. Reviderm Eye C Perfection contains caffeine to immediately tighten the skin and smooth out fine lines. It also contains a special blend of ingredients that boost skin’s moisture levels, keeping your eyes looking youthful.
Retinol: If your fine lines have become stubborn wrinkles, it’s time to bring in the big guns. Retinol is a vitamin A derivative and a powerful ingredient that not only erases sun damage and wrinkles, it also increases collagen production. Murad Time Release Retinol Concentrate for Deep Wrinkles mixes retinol with plumping peptides and healing vitamin E to visibly reduce deep wrinkles by 45% in just 6 weeks.
