In this article, we tell you about the key anti aging ingredients to look out for on the packaging when selecting skin care products such as moisturizers and anti aging serum. Knowing the ingredients to look for, will help you to select a product that will address your particular skin issues. For example, if you have wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, you want to select an intensive anti aging serum that contains Retinol or Hydroxy acids. In addition, the serum you select should contain emollients to moisturize the areas you are treating.
As the demand for effective anti aging products continues to increase, consumers will benefit by extensive new research for ingredients that deliver noticeable results. In the past 15 years, Retinol and Hydroxy acids have been the active ingredients in most products. Today, there are new ingredients that have demonstrated amazing results when used regularly. These amazing ingredients demonstrate the ability to repair cells and hydrate the skin to reduce the signs of aging.

Sirtuins are protein enzymes that were initially studied at prestigious research facilities such as MIT. These enzymes demonstrated the ability to increase the life of cells in laboratory research. To date, the enzymes are the only known substance to extend the life of cells under current laboratory testing. The enzymes can repair damaged cells and can boost collagen production. Sirtuins are making their way into many anti aging skincare products and dietary supplements.
Currently, this amazing ingredient can be found in products by Avon, Estée Lauder, and Clinique. One of our favorite products is Estee Lauder Time Zone Anti-Line and Wrinkle Eye Creme suitable for all skin types (pictured above)
