Top 10 Natural Anti-Ageing Skin Care Ingredients

When it comes to skin care, you are what you eat. Your skin more readily absorbs natural anti-ageing ingredients that also work more effectively with the body’s natural skin protective mechanisms. So, here are our top 10 natural anti-ageing ingredients to incorporate into your skin care routine.

Natural Anti-Ageing Skin Care Ingredients

1. Green Tea

Green has amazing health benefits for your whole body and contains a wealth of compounds that studies have shown to be effective for anti-ageing. Green tea has antioxidant properties to reduce the effect of free radicals on skin cells and helps the skin to retain moisture.

2. Pomegranate

Pomegranate is a super food with a big reputation for its anti-ageing properties. Recent research has shown that pomegranate contains urolithin A which prevents muscle cells from degenerating, and reduces sagging. It also contains high levels of vitamin C, which contribute to collagen production for firmer skin.

3. Hyaluronic Acid

Hydrated skin is youthful skin, and for optimal skin hydration, nothing beats hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a compound that naturally occurs in the body but diminishes as you age. It binds and retains water, and is responsible for cell communication and encourages collagen production. Use hyaluronic acid topically, as a dermal filler, or ingest it through starchy root vegetables and leafy greens.

4. Coffee Oil

Coffee oil is high in vitamin E, plant sterols, and caffeine. Plant sterols support cell reproduction and help slow down collagen degeneration, while vitamin E helps combat the signs of photo ageing by reducing oxidative stress and eliminating free radicals. However, it is the caffeine content that makes coffee oil a favourite ingredient for skin care products due to its powerful diuretic properties to reduce under eye bags and sagging.

5. Retinol

Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A and is used for chemically exfoliating the skin as it accelerates the skin renewal process. It binds to dead skin cells that block pores making it the perfect ingredient for giving you a fresh, dewy look and evening out skin tone and texture.

6. Sources of Vitamin A, C, E

These powerful antioxidants pack a big punch, whether you use them individually or as a natural skin care cocktail. Vitamin C helps to regulate the production of collagen to improve your skin’s structure, vitamin E neutralises free radicals to protect the skin’s elasticity, and vitamin A stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin for firmer, more supple skin. Many anti-ageing treatments in Stevenage use a combination of these vitamins to enhance their skin care properties.

7. Carrot Tissue Oil

Carrot tissue oil is created by macerating dried carrots in a neutral carrier oil. Carrot oil contains a powerful one-two punch of vitamin A and vitamin E, which fights the damaging effects of UV rays and environmental pollutants by stimulating collagen and elastin production and fighting free radicals that cause skin oxidation.

8. Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip oil is touted as the ultimate anti-ageing oil due to its high concentration of anti-ageing compounds and its ability to penetrate to the deepest layers of your skin. Rosehip oil is packed with vitamins A and C, antioxidants and fatty acids. It is also high in linoleic acid which allows it to be readily absorbed into the skin. It is a fast-acting oil that repairs photodamage and regenerates collagen and elastin.

9. Soy Bean Extract

While soy products have been used for hundreds of years in China for skin care, they have only recently gained popularity in modern times as studiesincreasingly show the huge range of benefits that soy bean extract has for yourskin. Soy bean extract contains soy isoflavones, which can reverse the signs of photoaging due to UVB exposure and stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid to help the skin retain moisture.

10. Sunflower Seed Oil

Sunflower seed oil has one of the highest concentrations of linoleic acid of any plant-based oil, which helps to regulate sebum production to keep your skin supple and accelerate cell renewal. It also contains high levels of vitamin E for UV protection and beta-carotene, which is converted to vitamin A in the body to improve the structural stability of your skin.
