Glycolic acid

A powerful and common anti-ageing ingredient easily found in anti-ageing creams. Glycolic acid reduces the appearance of early signs of ageing. It is a humectant that binds and holds water in the cells, increasing elasticity in your skin. A natural exfoliant, it dissolves oil and the outermost layer of the skin cells, allowing the skin to breathe and the skin cells to regenerate.

The absolute holy grail for ageing skin, retinol is a must-have ingredient in your anti-ageing cream if you want to diminish signs of ageing. Retinol or retinoids are easily found in cosmetic products and over-the-counter prescriptions that give your skin a young look. Retinoids are derived from vitamin A also that goes deep into the skin and increases skin cell turnover along with improving collagen synthesis. It’s a proven and beloved anti-ageing ingredient that delivers effective results when used regularly.

Sodium hyaluronate

The last incredible ingredient on our list is sodium hyaluronate. It is a derivative of hyaluronic acid and offers similar benefits for the skin, especially mature skin. Sodium hyaluronate hydrates the skin deeply and reduces visible fine lines and wrinkles by improving skin elasticity. Sodium hyaluronate is a better ingredient for anti-ageing creams than hyaluronic acid because it has a smaller molecule. This helps it reach the epidermis and hydrate the underlying skin layer, ensuring deep moisturisation and hydration.
