Wrinkle, Age Spot Removal & Dry Skin Relief
The sun has been and still is our enemy, especially when it comes to premature aging. Dry skin, fine lines, wrinkles and age spots are slowly appearing and not only taking our looks away, but also our confidence. Looking young is something that we all thrive for and we have all heard the phrase “40s is the new 30s”, but how do they do it, how do they keep their youthful glow, texture and of course tone? The answer is in the ingredients!
Rumex Extract: This extra ingredient is used in moisturizing creams that target pigmentation problems. It’s a natural compound but effective in regulating melanin production, so if you have or want to prevent age spots, try a product that uses Rumex extract.
Hyaluronic Acid: This is probably a very know ingredient if you are interested in combating fine lines and wrinkles with your regular moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring, but decreases as we age. A topical form of HA will help your skin look and feel younger because it makes the skin firmer.
Snail Secretion: Yes, the secretion of the land snail Helix Aspersa Muller is a great ingredient to have in any moisturizer. It is very popular due to the fact that this incredible compound can tackle just about any skin condition you might have in addition to boosting the proliferation of collagen and elastin and restoring water holding molecules to protect and repair the skin. Snail secretion, ladies and gentlemen, are nature’s way of gifting us the power of skin regeneration.
