Fresh Face, Smooth Skin: 6 Ingredients for Youthful Skin

Written by  

From lips to eyelashes and dull skin to brown spots, there are many areas of concern that lead clients to seek help in combatting the signs of aging. To help them maintain hydrated, lustrous, youthful-looking skin, these key ingredients are essential in effective antiaging products.


Seaweed is popular in antiaging treatments because it promotes skin hydration and tightening. In addition, seaweed provides the skin with nutrients such as vitamins, mineral salts, and amino acids. These nutrients help minimize redness and inflammation. Rich in vitamins C and E, this skin care ingredient also helps boost collagen production and protect from ultraviolet damage. 


Arnica flowers have long been used in homeopathic remedies for their anti-inflammatory properties. Stimulating blood flow, they help to reduce skin discoloration. Arnica is also valued for its antibacterial properties and has been found to help reduce swelling caused by injuries, bruising, and bug bites. 


This form of vitamin C is a favorite in antiaging skin care because it defends the skin from free radical damage, stimulates collagen production, and fades hyperpigmentation. Compared to other forms of vitamin C, it is also more suitable for sensitive skin, like the area around the eyes. According to studies, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate's fatty acid component aids its penetration. A stable, oil-soluble form of Vitamin C, tetrahexlydecyl ascorbate, when used topically, can help against damage caused by ultraviolet exposure. This ingredient's use is wide in skin care. It can be found in creams, lotions, makeup, gels, and sun and lip care products.


Found in many eye and lip products, octyldodecanol is an emollient and emulsifier prized for its lubricating properties that leave the skin feeling soft. An odorless, clear, water-soluble fatty alcohol produced from non-animal, natural oils and fats, octyldodecanol is known for its solvent properties, as well. Like tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, this ingredient is also widely use in skin care and can be found in products such as lotions, cleansers, cosmetics, and lip care. 


A form of hyaluronic acid, this ingredient helps to hydrate the skin and seal in moisture, making it a natural choice for combatting signs of aging, as the skin naturally loses water as it ages. It is also known to have a plumping effect on the skin. Because sodium hyaluronate occurs naturally in the dermis, it is a top ingredient of choice in antiaging skin care, as it is safe, non-toxic, non-irritating, and helps to replace the hyaluronic acid that is lost in the natural aging process. 


or puffy eyes and dull skin, lactic acid restricts blood flow and helps remove dead skin cells, brightening the skin and decreasing the appearance of swelling. It is a popular sensitive skin ingredient because it is a non-irritating and gentle alpha hydroxy acid. Great for almost all skin types, lactic acid also helps stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture.
