What are the Most Effective Skincare Ingredients?

Top 5 Ingredients for Anti-aging Skincare


Having a healthy-looking, glowing complexion is absolutely within reach through our 40’s and beyond. Reviewing your skincare routine is a good place to start. Knowing which ingredients are effective for helping mature skin look as healthy and beautiful as possible.

Hyaluronic Acid: When skin is dry, Hyaluronic Acid is one of the best ways to bring back moisture. This is why it’s one of our favorite ingredients for aging skin. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in skin and can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water! Yes, 1000 times! Having Hyaluronic acid in your day and night creams and serums considerably boosts moisturization. Tip: Try our Ultimate Hyaluronic Serum for amazing results! Also try Botanical Oil-Free Moisturizer and Botanical Facial Moisturizer both with moisture boosting Hyaluronic, as well as our Vitamin C Bundle, Marula and Pumpkin Lip & Eye Moisture and Triple Ceramide Collagen Serum.

Vitamin C: Scientific studies show that vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of aging and sun damage. Vitamin C delivers nutrients deep into tissues helping support natural collagen production, while it brightens, firms and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Tip: Try our Peptide Rich Eye Cream, Vitamin C Bundle or individual Vitamin C products to best suit your skin needs.


CoQ10: CoQ10 is not only critical to the cells ability to produce energy, it’s also critical to the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is important because it makes skin appear firm and smooth, while elastin gives your skin the appearance of flexibility and elasticity. The loss of collagen and elastin can cause skin to appear wrinkled and sagging. It’s no wonder this amazing ingredient made our list! Pro tip: CoQ10 works synergistically with caffeine so we have included both in our Peptide Rich Eye Cream! Tip: Try our Wrinkle Defense Curative Mist and our Vitamin C products for a healthy does of CoQ10!

Alpha Hydroxy Acids:
Exfoliation helps reveal fresh skin which becomes more important as we age. AHA’s act as a tool to help skin refresh itself a little more quickly to uncover a youthful glow and renewed look.
Tip: Try our Vitamin C Skincare products all with AHA’s, our Wild Rose Skincare line containing AHA’s, as well as our Love Fruit Enzyme Mask, Deep Refining Face Wash + Youthful Glow® Cell Renewal Complex and Botanical Facial Moisturizer + Elasti New®

Ceramides: Ceramides are lipid molecules found in cell membranes that help skin retain moisture. Ceramides help restore moisture and act as a natural barrier protecting the skin from our environment and from drying. These powerful little molecules are a must have for aging skincare. Basically put, they're the fat that traps water beneath skin's surface. Without Ceramides your skin cells wither. (Interesting note - Ceramide deficiency even contributes to eczema, says Dermatologist David Horne). Boost those Ceramides and boost critical hydration! Tip: Try our Triple Ceramide Collagen Serum for healthy skin at any age!
