Diminish the appearance of wrinkles, reduce pigmentation spots, and rediscover the oval of your face.
There are many ingredients that promise to restore youth to your skin. Discover the list of the 5 most effective anti-aging ingredients to defy the signs of time.
Peptides: cellular boosters
Peptides are tiny chains of amino acids that have the ability to act as cellular « messengers ». Essentially, they « communicate » with your cells to stimulate their activities. For example, they are able to send a signal to your skin cells to produce more collagen, which is essential for firmer skin. Peptides can equally increase the natural production of hyaluronic acid for a smoother, more plump and better hydrated skin. Peptides are key ingredients in fighting the appearance of wrinkles and contributing to younger skin.
Hyaluronic acid: plumping agent
Naturally present in the skin, hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide belonging to the sugar family. With the ability to absorb more than 1000 times its weight in water, hyaluronic acid provides the skin with excellent moisturizing properties. When it has a large molecular weight, hyaluronic acid acts as a surface plumping agent by capturing water molecules to fill-in superficial wrinkles and dehydration lines. When it has a small molecular weight, it deeply plumps the skin by penetrating the dermis to stimulate the natural production of hyaluronic acid. It represents an incomparable anti-aging active ingredient to improve the hydration of the skin and plump wrinkles and fine lines on the surface as well as deep down.
Where to find it: Sensitive Skin Cream, Hydrocell Plus Cream, Lifting Complex Cream, Lifting Plus Gel, Soothing Emulsion for Men, Lifting Cream for Men, VitaLift-C HA Serum, BioTense Micellar Foam, BioTense Serum, BioTense Cream, Eye Contour Gel BioTense
Vitamin C: the antioxidant booster
As a true antioxidant shield, vitamin C is a powerful anti-aging active ingredient that protects the skin cells from the destructive effects of free radicals. As a way to re-densify the skin, vitamin C boosts the natural production of collagen to erase the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and contribute to firmer looking skin. Its brightening and energizing properties make it an ideal ingredient to visibly reduce dark spots and revive the radiance of dull, tired and devitalized complexions.
Glycogen: the energizing shield
Glycogen is a recognized active ingredient for optimizing cellular metabolism and boosting energy within each cell. Studies have shown that glycogen protects the skin from the devastating effects of UVB, one of the major factors in premature aging of the skin. Glycogen also helps promote the natural production of hyaluronic acid to increase the density of the skin and plump wrinkles from within. It also improves the skin’s resistance to environmental aggressions.
Acmella Oleracea: « botulinum toxin» effect
The fight against expression lines is now possible with Acmella Oleracea. This plant extract contains spilanthol, a natural painkiller, traditionally used as an anesthetic for the gums. Used on the skin, it helps to reduce the action of neurotransmitters involved in the involuntary contractions of the skin muscles. When these muscles are relaxed, the features of the face relax and the appearance of expression lines are visibly reduced. This ingredient is thus nicknamed: the « botulinum toxin effect » ingredient.
