Wrinkles are caused by the decrease of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. As we age, these substances (which keep our skin smooth) decrease. In young skin, a typical structure of the skin tissue and a large amount of collagen and elastin, which contribute to the building blocks of the skin's structure, ensure that the skin looks and feels firm. Over time, the internal aging process preceded by our genes in combination with externally induced oxidative stress, for example, exposure to sunlight, affects the appearance of the skin. Wrinkles can then form.
An annual decrease in the collagen of 1% and an increasingly disrupted skin structure make the skin less firm, and wrinkles arise. Another critical factor in the development of wrinkles is a decrease in the production of hyaluronic acid. This is the binding substance that encloses the cells and gives the skin a youthful, smooth appearance. The skin structure loses its full and firm feeling by decreasing this skin-specific substance, and it forms folds more quickly. These general aging processes also contribute to a loss of density and loss of volume.
Lines in the forehead furrows, between the eyebrows, and laugh lines appear. As we age, they develop into more visible wrinkles. Fine lines around the mouth and nose can become deep and visible, the so-called nasolabial folds appear.
Wrinkles can appear in various places on the face and neck. Unlike the loss of volume or density, wrinkles are evident because they appear as clear lines or folds on the face. They usually appear first in certain areas:
These skincare ingredients are found in anti-aging products. They all have different functions in the skin and, together with other components of cosmetic products, can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles in different ways.
Using anti-age products can help make wrinkles less visible.
Substances such as coenzyme Q10, AHAs, pentapeptides, hyaluronic acid, saponin, magnolol, and arctiin are active ingredients in the formulas of anti-aging products.
Act like super scrubs. They break the bonds that hold dry and damaged cells together to allow new skin to appear.
Argan oil (also known as Argania Spinosa kernel oil) comes from the kernels of the Argan tree. It contains up to 80% essential fatty acids (omega-9 and omega-6). The body uses fatty acids to produce and repair cell membranes and strengthen the skin to perform its vital function and protect the body. Argan oil is also rich in vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant) and has an anti-inflammatory effect.
A naturally occurring substance in the skin that can bind up to 30 times its molecular weight in water. As an active skincare product, it has a strong skin firming effect that can effectively reduce wrinkles. The main active ingredients in I.D. Swiss botanicals deep hydrating serum.
