The right anti-aging skincare products can do wonders for your skin and youthful appearance, but what exactly is it that makes them work? Here’s a rundown of all the top special ingredients which help you get that magic glow.
The stimulating deliciousness of oranges is not only great for your insides but works wonders on your skin too. Who knew? Vitamin C is a great attacker of fine lines, wrinkles and scars on its own; but it also leads collagen, elastin and Vitamin E straight to the charge. Vitamin E actually depletes during its battle with free radicals; but luckily Vitamin C regenerates those energy levels. Vitamin C also helps stimulate the cells that produce those lovely, anti-aging friends named collagen and elastin.
One of nature’s superior antioxidants, Vitamin E stops visible signs of skin-hungry free radicals ravaging our dermis. Our bodies don’t produce this sublime moisturiser and anti-inflammatory, so we use capsules and lotions to invite it in. Triple bonus: Vitamin E doubles as a delivery system by helping our skin absorb other great ingredients. How amazing is that?
Pomegranate oil is rich in omega 5 fatty acids which penetrate deep into your skin and go through the skin layers to hydrate well. While it’s penetrating, it also protects the outer layer from sun and environmental damage, boosts new cell production in the skin’s inner layers, softens your skin, and assists with collagen and elastin for increased production. A pomegranate’s ability to do just about everything makes it one of the best skincare ingredients for a radiant complexion.
Drink it, bathe in it or moisturise your skin with it. Green tea and oxidative stress (which those icky free radicals cause), have an antagonistic relationship. Fortunately, green tea wins when they have a confrontation making oxidative stress run away and wrinkled, saggy skin stay on the sidelines for another day. As an anti-inflammatory, it also kicks inflammation (another skin ager), to the curb.

Our bodies host enzymes that survive by sucking on collagen and elastin. As we age, they multiply and have great appetites, but white tea, however, places the enzymes on a strict diet by inhibiting their cravings. White tea also lets loose its catechins and powerhouse antioxidants, to slow down the appearance of wrinkles by giving a lecture to free radicals who get bored and run away.

You might better recognise ubiquinone by the name CoQ10. Our bodies produce this coenzyme, but its production, like many other proteins and enzymes, slows as we age. We want this naturally occurring antioxidant because it stops free radicals and revives collagen and elastin production. It also energises and rejuvenates skin cells inside the cells, making it one of the best known skincare ingredients for anti-aging.
Grandma was more right than she knew in touting veggies as good for you, so the next time you’re at the grocers load up on cucumbers. As eye pads, this delicious green vegetable refreshes puffy, tired eyes which can add years to your appearance. Cucumbers are rich in Vitamin E and potassium which also help in fighting fine lines and wrinkles, and their cleansing properties soften the skin and increase its suppleness.
