You probably know too well how overwhelming shopping for anti-aging ingredients can be. Serums, masks, creams - there are a lot of products to choose from and every one promises to deliver a different result. So how do you choose the right one for you?
The answer lies in the ingredients. Knowing exactly what to look for in the seemingly endless list, you'll be able to narrow down the product that can give you the results you want.
Today, let us break down the top contenders for you so you can skip to the good part and discover the right match.
1. Hyaluronic Acid
A naturally occurring substance that can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, this ingredient can give hydration, firmness, and volume to the skin. This particular substance depletes as we age, thus causing the fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and all the other unwanted premature signs of aging.
Products with hyaluronic acid have the power to help reverse the damage caused by free radicals (UV Rays). Simply put, you can expect firmer and plumper skin with regular use.
YEOUTH's Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum is the answer to dull, dry skin. Get it here.
These amino acid chains can deeply penetrate skin and help in the functions of the proteins, particularly collagen. Collagen breakdown often leads to thinning of the skin and the appearance of wrinkles.
Using peptide-laden products encourages the skin to make more collagen, renewing skin for a more youthful-looking you. Peptides actually trick your skin into thinking that it has lost collagen, so it produces more. How cool is that?
YEOUTH's Hyaluronic Acid is infused with Tripeptide 31, an ingredient which beautifully imitates the anti-aging properties of Retinoic Acid , sans the unwanted side effects. It is a safe alternative and provides excellent anti-aging benefits.
It is proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, shrink pore size and reduce hyperpigmentation in skin. Get it here.
A recurring favorite in a lot of beauty and wellness products, Vitamin C acts as a powerful antioxidant, guarding skin from free radical damage and slowing down the damage and signs of aging.
Vitamin C also boosts collagen production, proving once again that it's one of the most beneficial and versatile ingredients in the beauty world. Because of the amount of exposure that the sun receives (it is after all the largest and most unprotected organ in the body…), it has the highest predisposition to UV ray exposure. Good thing that Vitamin C is able to rejuvenate the skin’s cells and provide a strong antioxidant protection against such damaging free radical exposure.
YEOUTH's Vitamin C Serum is formulated with high-quality ingredients that significantly help reduce fine lines, enhance skin tone and texture, and nourish your skin with deep penetrating hydration. Get it here.
A Vitamin A derivative, retinol is a power wrinkle-fighter. It normally takes several weeks to see results, however retinol is one of the best ingredients when it comes to unclogging pores, smoothing wrinkles, improving skin tone, and lightening brown spots.
Retinol is a remarkably unique and diverse ingredient that is key in retarding the unwanted anti-aging process. Applied regularly, retinol turns into retinoic acid, which promotes the growth of new and healthy skin cells.
This 2.5% Retinol Serum with Hyaluronic acid, Aloe Vera, and Vitamin E from YEOUTH promotes healthy, youthful cell behaviour for optimum skin cell function, fights free radical damage from UV Rays which cause fine lines and wrinkles, and fades age and sun spots more quickly by increasing collagen production and encouraging cell turnover.

5. Glycolic Acid
For a lot of people, their anti-aging skincare routine will not be complete without the use of glycolic acid. Glycolic acid is a natural skin exfoliator that sweeps away dead skin cells, thus enabling the skin to not just look younger but also feel younger. Glycolic acid does this by increasing the skin’s collagen and elastin production, which are the two naturally occurring elements in the skin responsible for keeping the skin hydrated, soft and smooth in texture, and of course, free from every other premature sign of aging.
YEOUTH’s Glycolic Acid Anti-Aging 30% Gel Peel is ideal for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, rough and uneven skin, and shrinking pores. Glycolic Acid is also known to help fight visible signs of acne and acne scars. Get it here.
