Every once in a while, the skincare world praises another new product as the holy grail to anti-aging. One of the most recent to gain notoriety is using retinol to relieve wrinkles.
Retinol may seem like a dream come true but it comes with some serious side effects like dryness, redness, and increased skin sensitivity. After researching some safer options, we’ve compiled the best skincare ingredients that are more safe and effective than retinol!
Your skin cells have the power to regenerate but as you get old, the rate of new skin cells slows down. This is often the cause of wrinkles, sagging, and dullness but rosehip oil is nature’s answer to helping erase wrinkles. This exceptional ingredient comes from the rosehip plant which is pressed into oil for maximum absorption for your skin. It’s even been used in alternative medicine for years on skin.
Rosehip is packed with fatty acids and vitamin A which make it one of the few skincare ingredients that can multi-task at helping take years off the look of your face. It has been proven to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, and increase your cell regeneration rate. This will turn over your skin cells faster allowing them to heal and reverse damage from years past.
Matrixyl Synthe 6™
There aren’t many skincare ingredients that have been proven so effective by science as Matrixyl Synthe 6. It is a cosmeceutical ingredient which means it offers medical-grade cosmetic benefits to anyone who uses it. This is not your drugstore wrinkle ingredient, but instead, it’s a powerful anti-aging peptide that has shown results that are comparable to some botox, filler, and facelift results.
Matrixyl Synthe 6 is made with six different essential nutrients to help rebuild your skin and repair wrinkles. Unlike retinol, it won’t dry your skin out or cause redness and irritation. In fact, in some studies conducted comparing Matrixyl to other ingredients like vitamin C and retinol, Matrixyl Synthe 6 helped decrease wrinkle depth by an extra 18% over the others!
Most people will turn to an ingredient like retinol because it claims to have an amazing power to reduce wrinkles. Sadly, side effects like redness, dryness, flakes, and irritation can make using retinol difficult for most skin types. If you are looking to help banish and plump facial wrinkles, Progage is the perfect ingredient for you – and much safer than using retinol.
Proage is a peptide that helps increase your production of collagen. Collagen is what makes your face look youthful and without it, you will suffer from deeper lines and wrinkles. Turning to a product with Proage, like our Repair and Release Cream will help you fill in and plump wrinkles so they are no longer visible on your face. Studies have proven just how effective this ingredient at reducing wrinkle depth and severity for almost every single skin type.
