As we age, our skin becomes more prone to fine lines, wrinkles, & other signs of ageing. If you would like to slow down this process, there are skincare ingredients that can help us to maintain a more youthful complexion. Today, we'll explore the top 3 skincare ingredients that you should look for in youth-promoting products.
Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-binding ingredient that occurs naturally in our skin. It helps to keep our skin hydrated & plump. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases, leading to dehydration & the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. By using products that contain hyaluronic acid, we can help to restore hydration to our skin & improve its overall elasticity. Look for products that contain high concentrations of hyaluronic acid, such as serums or moisturisers, to get the most benefit.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect our skin from damage caused by free radicals. It also helps to brighten our skin & improve its texture. As we age, our skin can become dull & uneven in texture, making us look older than we are. By using products that contain vitamin C, we can help to improve the overall appearance of our skin & reduce the signs of premature ageing. Look for products that contain a stable form of vitamin C, such as L-ascorbic acid, for maximum benefit.
Bakuchiol is a plant-based ingredient that has been shown to have similar effects to retinol, but without the potential for irritation. It helps to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines & wrinkles, & increase skin firmness. As we age, our skin can lose its elasticity. By using products that contain bakuchiol, we can help to restore the firmness of our skin & reduce the signs of premature ageing. Look for products that contain high concentrations of bakuchiol, such as serums or moisturisers, to get the most benefit.
Incorporating these three skincare ingredients into your youth-promoting routine can help to improve the overall appearance of your skin & reduce the signs of ageing. At Hark & Zander, we use these ingredients in many of our products, for example our award-winning HempRestore Good Night Crème which contains Bakuchiol! Additionally, our newest product, the HempHydrate Refreshing Gel Toner contains Hyaluronic Acid to keep your skin hydrated and plump! We also use Kakadu Plum (the highest source of Vitamin C found in nature) in our HempBright Face the Day Crème so that your skin can glow all day long!
