SkinElixir Healthy Aging FaQs

What Causes Premature Aging?

There are multiple factors that contribute to premature aging. Most of these factors are related to lifestyle and external pollutants. Some of these factors include:
Psychological stress
UV radiation in sunlight
Excess alcohol consumption
These factors cause the formation of free radicals, which cause premature skin aging. Free radicals are chemically-reactive substances generated by the body, particularly when exposed to UV radiation.
Our SkinElixir range is specially formulated to address

When Should You Start Using Products?

Again, aging affects people in different ways. As a general rule, however, it is advised that people start using anti-aging products between the ages of 26 and 30. You can expect the use of anti-aging products to show progress when you use them often.

What Ingredients Should I Look For in Age Defying Products? 

Just because a product has the words “anti-aging” on the label doesn’t guarantee it actually does anything to address signs of aging. However, there are a few proven ingredients that can make a difference : 

    • Retinoids: It is the active form of vitamin A in the body, and it combats fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the skin’s collagen. By stimulating the production of blood vessels underneath the skin, retinol help to balance skin color and get rid of unwanted hyperpigmentation. 
    • Vitamin C: As a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin C keeps skin looking firm, healthy, and vibrant by neutralising free radical damage from sun exposure and environmental irritants and lightening hyperpigmentation and melanin displacement. It is also an effective exfoliant that triggers cell turnover, which causes skin to think it’s being “damaged,” sending collagen production into overdrive. 
    • Niacinamide: A form of vitamin B3, niacinamide helps to fortify the skin’s natural barrier—similar to retinoids, while acting as an antioxidant to fight free radical damage and reduce redness and irritation. 
    • Hyaluronic Acid: A carbohydrate naturally occurring throughout the body, hyaluronic acid is able to hold 1,000 times its weight in water,  and helps address depletion as we age and skin loses its moisture. When applied topically, hyaluronic acid locks in moisture and improves texture, creating a protective barrier for the skin for a plumper, more supple (and therefore wrinkle-less)
