Skin-Healthy Ingredients to Look for in Your Beauty Products

We all want to look younger and have healthy, glowing skin. So, we must fight against environmental factors, sun damage, and aging so we can continue to look our best. With so many products on the market, however, it can be overwhelming to find skin care products and makeup that’s perfect for our skin type (dry, oily, sensitive, or combination) — or even our skin tone. On top of that, have you ever tried to read the back of a beauty product label? It can be pretty hard to keep track of which ingredient does what.

At Ageless Aesthetics and Salt Lounge in Indianapolis, our expert team uses only the highest quality skin care ingredients so you can get the results you’re looking for. Today, we’d like to share a few of those secrets with you. Here are some of the skin-healthy ingredients you need to look for in your beauty products so you get the most bang for your buck. 

L-Ascorbic acid

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals and slow the signs of aging. It can help reverse sun damage and may stimulate collagen production at the cellular level, which ultimately helps your skin look firmer. When applied topically as part of a daily skin care routine, vitamin C helps to improve skin texture and quality.

Resveratrol

Resveratrol is not just found in wine. This powerhouse antioxidant found in grape skins, berries, and dark chocolate helps protect your skin from the environment and the sun. It can brighten your complexion, soothe irritated skin, and minimize redness. It also works at the cellular level to help combat the signs of aging.

Alpha-hydroxy acids

Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) are derived from both plants and animals, and they combat the signs of aging by exfoliating the skin. Exfoliation is the normal process of shedding dead skin, so it looks refreshed instead of dull. AHAs can promote blood flow to the skin, correct discoloration like sun spots, and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Retinol

Retinol is made from vitamin A. It boosts collagen production so your skin looks plumper, which means wrinkles and fine lines are less noticeable. It can also improve skin texture and discoloration from sun or age spots and scars.

Don’t settle for anything less than the best when it comes to your skin care and beauty routine. Look for products with these ingredients to keep that healthy glow and slow the signs of aging for years to come.
