Looking for anti aging ingredients in skin care products is common as we age. We all want to sip from the Fountain of Youth for an immediate restoration of our once youthful body, skin and hair.  To my knowledge, no one has found this fountain, but have found anti aging ingredients which help to slow down the skin aging process.

Our skin sheds old skin cells regularly- however, the older we are, the slower the process of new cell turnover. Skin becomes dull, dry and loses it’s structure, causing saggy skin. The epidermis is the outer layer of skin that is exposed and susceptible to the most damage shielding us, from sun rays, smoke, pollution. The dermis layer of our skin determines the strength and suppleness of the skin – this is where collagen and is formed. How we care for our skin, determines how our skin will look for us.

Ingredients to Help Stop Aging Skin

Free radicals such as pollution, smog and smoke attack skin cells causing skin cells to weaken faster than scheduled.
