The 7 Best Anti-Ageing Skincare Ingredients

As the largest organ in our body, skin acts as a barrier between our body and the environment. Our skin protects our body from extreme temperatures, harmful elements and pathogensDue to the constant exposure to internal and external ageing factors, skin is often the first organ in our body which shows signs of ageing.

Skin Ageing Process

Ageing happens because our skin can no longer renew and replace all the damaged cells. The skin ageing process is hugely influenced by genetic predisposition, lifestyle and daily skincare routine. There are 3 major skin components known as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which provide a structure and give our skin its strength, elasticity and resilience. Ageing causes the degradation of these components; resulting in the appearance of wrinkles, lines, age spots, dry and sagging skin.

The 7 Best Anti-Ageing Skincare Ingredients

Studies showed that some skincare ingredients slow down and reverse the signs of ageing. If you look for anti-ageing skincare products, make sure they have one or few of these 7 best ingredients:

1. N-Acetyl Glucosamine

Naturally extracted from the outer shells of shellfish, studies showed that n-acetyl glucosamine reduces wrinkles, fine lines and age spots while also firms and lifts up the appearance of the skin. Clinical data indicated that n-acetyl glucosamine increases the production of collagen in the skin by 33% and hyaluronic acid by 107%.

2. Resveratrol

Naturally found in the skin of red grapes, resveratrol is the most powerful antioxidant to date which possesses greater anti-oxidative effects than vitamin C, E, and A. Studies showed that resveratrol neutralises free radicals, prevents oxidative damage, diminishes wrinkles and pigmentation spots.

3. Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is another very powerful antioxidant which provides energy to cells and increases skin's ability to regenerate and reverse signs of ageing. It also helps prevent skin damage due  to UV rays, blue light and pollution.

4. 24-karat Colloidal Gold Peptide

Studies showed that 24-karat colloidal gold peptide has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and skin healing properties. With a particle size less than 0.0000001 meter, colloidal gold peptide brings active ingredients, nutrients and oxygen deeper into the skin to revitalise and renew cells.

5. Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)

Unlike niacin which is not suitable for sensitive skin, niacinamide is the gentle and soothing type of vitamin B3 which reduces the signs of ageing and prevents the appearance of pigmentation spots. Studies showed that it increases the production of collagen, elastin and other proteins in the skin by up to 100%.

6. Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid)

Hyaluronic acid plumps up the skin, reduces wrinkles and lines. However, not all hyaluronic acids are the same. For best results, look for sodium hyaluronate. Sodium hyaluronate has a smaller molecular size compares to the one of hyaluronic acid, therefore it can penetrate deeper into the skin.

7. Bakuchiol

You may not hear this name before but studies showed that bakuchiol which is extracted from the seed of psoralea corylifolia plant is better than retinol at reversing the signs of ageing. Unlike retinol, bakuchiol doesn't cause photosensitivity so it is suitable for day and night time use.
