The Beauty Ingredients Snob...Part 4! Vitamin A and Argireline for Anti-Aging!
Today I’ll start with the letter A. It seems like a good place to start! A is for apple…but I maintain it’s for Anti-Aging!
In my opinion, if you want your skin to look younger you need key ingredients. Both of which start with the letter A!
Vitamin “A” is the first and “Argireline” is the second. Vitamin A or retinol is great for long term anti-aging benefits while argireline is for those of us who want to look great asap! A great combo in my opinion because while you’re waiting for that retinol to work over time you’re looking great in the interim because of the quicker effects of the argireline.
Vitamin A or retinoid derivatives work by generating new cells from deep within our skin. Argireline, which is a peptide chain of amino acids works by relaxing the muscles within our face to lessen the pronounced look of wrinkles from frown lines and crows feet.
My favorite retinol products in the past have always been virtually retinol only. Meaning a separate container that was retinol exclusively. It made sense to me because retinol is best used at night and so I just used it along with my other night treatments at bedtime. Additionally, I felt that it must be a stronger form if it were in its own container. However, since then I’ve discovered ZO Skin Health Ommerse Overnight Recovery Cream. ZO Skin Health gets an A+ for this amazing product. During precious sleep your skin gets a chance to get amazingly healthy by getting hydrated and repaired. The retinol reduces fine lines and wrinkles while the ceramides nourish the skin.
My argireline pick is one of my favorite skincare products on the market today. However, it’s also the most expensive. You’ll have to dig deep for this precious blend but you’ll be glad you did. Euoko offers Euoko Y-30 Intense Lift Concentrate. This product works both immediately as well as in the long term. It is anti-aging skin care at its finest. Expect to see dramatic results with pore size, expression lines, cell turnover, wrinkles and texture. This product is phenomenal. Another A+!
