Fine lines and wrinkles – we all want to stop them in their tracks, before they ruin the youthful appearance of our skin.
These signs of premature aging often start on the forehead, worry lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet in the outer corner of the eyes, and smile or laugh lines near the mouth of someone with mature skin. In their early stages, these aesthetic issues are barely noticeable and are easily concealed. Without proper treatment, however, fine lines and wrinkles deepen to change the overall cosmetic appeal of your skin.
Ever wonder how to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on your face?
Effective treatment for lines and wrinkles starts with a finely-tuned balance of ingredients. In the early days of wrinkle repair, skincare professionals had only a handful of ingredients to work with. Fortunately, through decades of research, clinical trials, and consumer feedback, chemists, researchers, and skincare professionals now know how to remove fine lines and wrinkles safely, effectively, and with long-term results. Today’s anti-aging products contain scientifically-proven formulations containing potent substances that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Ingredients to Help Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Revinia® products contain a potent formulation of ingredients that help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin C can help visible signs of premature aging by protecting the skin from untimely wrinkles and lines from sun exposure. This essential vitamin is an antioxidant, which means it helps protect skin cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.
Vitamin C also helps protect against wrinkles by boosting the production of collagen, a protein that provides elasticity and structure to the skin. A youthful body produces an abundant amount of collagen. As the body ages, though, its production of this important protein declines in ways that allow wrinkles and fine lines to develop. Vitamin C keeps collagen production at the highest levels possible to prevent signs of premature aging from developing.
Vitamin C is often found in serums, which consist of smaller molecules and are therefore thinner in consistency than are creams or lotions. The smaller molecules allow the serum to penetrate deeper into the skin, where the vitamin C can produce the greatest anti-wrinkle benefits.
The human body uses peptides as “building blocks” to make collagen, elastin, and other proteins the skin uses to stay healthy, firm, and youthful-looking.
Peptides may be found in vitamins, creams and serums.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a sugar molecule naturally present in skin. It helps bind water to collagen, which plumps up the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
HA is present in serums, sheet masks, and moisturizers.
Polyoprepolymer 15 creates a “reservoir” of active ingredients in the upper layers of the skin, and creates a suitable environment for those active ingredients to go to work. This ingredient increases the efficacy of the active ingredients and reduces irritation.
Retinoids first came to the consumer market as an acne-fighting drug in the early 1970s. Found in creams and serums, retinol minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, plumps up the skin, improves skin elasticity and slows the breakdown of collagen.
Retinol is a type of retinoid, one of the most widely-researched anti-aging ingredients available. Retinoids are derivatives of vitamin A, often touted as the gold standard for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Like other retinoids, retinol works to address the visible signs of aging by neutralizing the free radicals that may be damaging the collagen in skin.
Retinol and other retinoids work by prompting surface skin cells to turn over and die rapidly, which promotes the growth of new skin cells underneath. Retinoids also hamper the breakdown of collagen and thicken the deeper layer of skin where lines and wrinkles get their start. Retinol and other retinoids also reduce visible signs of aging by sloughing off brown spots, also known as age spots, and curb the production of the melatonin that causes these skin discolorations to appear in the first place.
While retinol is effective, it can have its drawbacks. Manufacturers use chemical processes to make retinol; certain processes, such as the purification process, can be extremely complex. These processes can also cause the formation of undesired byproducts. Retinol can also cause unwanted dryness, irritation, and possibly photosensitivity at the site of treatment, for example. Finally, daily use of retinols can take a long time to produce meaningful results.
Many anti-aging professionals are turning to alternatives to retinol that are more natural. ac-11® is one of those alternatives. ac-11® provides a wide variety of benefits when it comes to reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Made from the woody Uncaria tomentosa vine harvested from the tropical jungles of the Amazon rainforest, the active ingredient in ac-11® can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by repairing skin damage associated with sun exposure, restoring optimal function of skin cells, and promoting the healthy aging process of cells.
Retinols are available in creams and serums.
