The anti-aging ingredients of the skin are similar to those found in anti-aging supplements. That is to say, when you treat the skin, it needs the same nutrients for ageless beauty on the outside and on the inside.
Antioxidants are the foundation of any ageless beauty program. Antioxidants have been found to be anti-aging because of their harmful effects on cells and the repair of free radicals. Our body produces antioxidants, but many more free radicals, so we need to draw these essential nutrients from our diet and our supplements.
The effect of antioxidants on aging skin can be immediate and dramatic. Wrinkle creams or serums containing antioxidants help fight cell damage, but they also give the skin a shine. They also play an important role in helping the skin produce its own collegan and elastin. These two nutrients in the skin diminish over time due to poor diet, weather conditions, neglect and aging. This leads to the falling and loosening of the face and wrinkles.
Minerals are another important element anti-aging skin ingredient. A broad-based mineral product, used as a spritzer and toner, will help give the face extra shine and mitigate cell damage. Mineral mud masks, seaweed masks and clay masks are the best way to get minerals into the skin.
Essential fatty acids are another important anti-aging ingredient that helps moisture repair, firm, brighten and act as a carrier for other nutrients. When a woman or a man reaches the age of 38, it is advisable to add an oil-based serum to the skin care regimen. Hazelnut, macadamia, olive and flax oils are considered as anti-aging oils for the skin. Combine all this with good nutrition and internal nutrition and you get the base of an ageless beauty.
