As we have seen, in the last dermatips, our skin inevitably ages for various external and internal reasons. However, it is in our daily habits and in our skincare routine that we can slow down the effects of aging.

Therefore, today we tell you several active ingredients that we should use/look for in our skincare routine to maintain a young, radiant and healthy complexion. To prevent what we should look for is to have a good hydration of the epidermis, protect from free radicals and solar radiation (here we will never tire of reminding you of the use of sunscreen):

  • Vitamin C: it is a powerful antioxidant because it prevents damage to cellular DNA, thus delaying aging. Increases collagen synthesis, thereby reducing wrinkles and restoring skin flexibility. In addition, it is depigmenting because it decreases the synthesis of melanin.
  • Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5): increases the synthesis of skin lipids, which also improves the skin barrier, which benefits damaged skin and wound healing. If used in combination with vitamin C it performs better.
  • Vitamin A (retinoic acid): helps cell regeneration and the production of collagen and elastin in skin fibers, it is one of the active ingredients with the most visible benefits in the short term as it reduces wrinkles and fine lines of expression, improves the tone, the texture, it reduces blemishes, it helps to improve the problem of acne and dark spots… all of that!
  • Co-enzyme Q10: it is capable of reducing the depth of wrinkles and restoring turgidity to the skin
  • Hyaluronic acid: its main characteristic is its great capacity to attract and retain water, which is why it has become one of those that cannot be missing in cosmetics. In its topical use, it provides large doses of hydration to the skin, as well as giving it a smoother appearance and helping to fill in small wrinkles and expression lines.

You can look to use several of the assets in each of the steps of your routine. Perhaps the vitamin B5 in the serum, the vitamin A in the eye contour, the vitamin C in the moisturizer, the hyaluronic acid in the sunscreen... in short, if you combine them, you will have better results. And we want for you, the best skin!
