How anti aging creams work?

Updated: Jan 15, 2021

Anti-aging creams work in combination with several components. These components are retinoids, hydroxy acids, antioxidants, peptides, hyaluronic acid.

Retinoids (Vitamin A compounds) are known for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and improving skin elasticity.

Hydroxy acids, like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and citric acid, are exfoliants and help remove dead skin cells to allow for a newer skin layer to surface more quickly.

Antioxidants have gotten a lot of attention for their ability to fight free radicals, which are unstable molecules that cause cell damage and skin aging.

Peptides, like pentapeptides and copper peptides, are proteins that stimulate the production of collagen and promote wound healing. In addition, they can also help reduce the look of wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid is good for moisturization. As you age, your skin starts to lose moisture and that can make wrinkles more visible.
