Exciting ingredients reach deep into skin to revitalize, protect, smooth and hydrate. It’s even better when active ingredients in products are natural – derived from plant sources or naturally-occurring in the skin. That’s the case with this Kristals skin care professionals’ line-up of natural anti-aging all-stars. Look for these in products aimed at supporting healthy, younger-looking skin.
Kristals Skin Care Tips: All-Star Anti-Aging Ingredients
Pomegranate, green tea and coffee extracts
Natural antioxidants from these delicious sources shield skin cells from damaging free radicals and lend a hand to help repair them. Essential for helping shield your skin from the daily onslaught of free radicals triggered by sunlight, smoke and pollution.
Nope, not the artery-clogging kind in bacon ‘n eggs. Turns out cholesterol’s part of the natural lipid layer that keeps your skin hydrated and healthy. Added to creams, lotions and serums, topical cholesterol – often listed as “wool extract” or “lanolin extract” – has big benefits.
Another all-star antioxidant, resveratrol helps shield your skin from damage by the sun’s rays. Resveratrol may also help maintain the collagen that’s part of the matrix that keeps skin looking firm. Read more about topical resveratrol’s anti-aging powers here.
Grape seed extract
This natural substance fights free-radical damage. It’s a team player, often combined with other antioxidants to boost the effects on skin. Bonus: Grape seed extract is renowned as a wound-healer and may help discourage wrinkling, too.
Curcumin, found in the popular curry spice turmeric, is garnering an international reputation as an inflammation-soother. As a topical ingredient in skincare products, curcuminoids may help discourage side effects of sun exposure like discoloration and cell damage that can lead to premature skin aging.
These compounds sound high-tech, but they actually are part of the skin’s structure – called the intercellular matrix. Adding ceramides via skincare products can replace losses due to exposure to sun, wind, low humidity and over-drying.
Replace toxic skincare ingredients with these anti-aging all-stars and you’ll retain youthful-looking skin well into the future.
