There is this moment in every woman’s life when she goes to the shop for her first mature skin face cream. The good news is that nowadays – thanks to the latest scientific advancements – the anti-ageing skincare products are more effective in delivering the desired results than their predecessors. Keep reading to know what ingredients such you look for.

Choosing the right mature skin face cream isn’t easy. Some products focus on promoting smoother skin, some fights of sagging, and others again are designed to brighten the discolorations that show up while you get older. No matter which effect you count on the most, these are the ingredients your next cream should be made form:

  • vitamin C
  • vitamin E
  • retinol
  • ceramides
  • coenzyme Q10
  • collagen

All of these ingredients are proven to stop the process of ageing, and even completely remove the appearance of fine lines, spots and dullness.

Cosmetic ingredients that promote youthful-looking appearance

Antioxidants seem to be one of the most potent substances that should be applied to the skin, no matter its age. They fight free radicals that do nothing but cause premature ageing of the skin. Antioxidants are also known for shielding against UV, as well as preventing the appearance of sagging, wrinkles and spots. Rosmarinic acid or hawk beetle extract are two prime examples of strong antioxidants. Polyphenols are also good at neutralizing free radicals by strengthening the skin protective barrier. They also stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.

Probiotics are also important for the skin to remain young-looking. Commonly found in plain yogurts, probiotics are also added to nourishing creams. The good news is that all skin types tolerate them well. Those live microorganisms stimulate skin to perform their self-renewal process quicker.

When it comes to controversial cosmetic ingredients found in anti-ageing products, there is one that evokes mixed feelings – snake venom peptides. This substance is said to have a similar effect to the popular botox injection treatment.

Research shows that skin ages faster when the organism lacks calcium. Its deficiency can be dealt with by supplementing the right medication. There are also some brilliant, yet pretty rare, face creams enriched with calcium. You can use them especially if you want to get rid of sagging.

Formula of mature skin cream

If you count on the best results, you need to find a cream that is able to penetrate all skin layers, reaching the deepest ones. That is why the texture of a given cosmetic plays a huge role when it comes to creating the final effects. That is why there are many anti-ageing products closed in ampoules. Face serums are also considered as one of the best products for mature skin, mostly because they are able to reach the deepest skin layers and start fixing the skin from within.
