Decode your anti-aging ingredients for your most powerful aging repair yet
5 anti-aging ingredients you need to know about
In the quest for youthful skin, we’re willing to try pretty much anything, but what do we actually know about the ingredients that we’re applying to our complexion? Keep reading to understand the science behind 5 of the best anti-aging ingredients, and what exactly they target for younger-looking skin.
Hyaluronic Acid for plumping
Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant molecule, able to hold an incredible amount of water (1000 times its weight in water! ) and to deliver it deep into the lower layers of the skin to help plump and iron out fine lines. Not only does it instantly improve the appearance of skin, but it also has longer-term effects; hydrating and nourishing skin cells to help boost skin’s elasticity and its natural protective barrier.
One of the first signs of aging is through loss of skin’s volume, as collagen levels deplete with age. Therefore, include hyaluronic acid in your beauty regimen with Aquasource Everplump , which contains Blue Hyaluron to replenish, strengthen and smooth skin. This powerful anti-aging moisturizer was assessed by 52 women, and after the first application, participants agreed that on average skin felt 52.3% more toned than before, and after one week, there were 22.4% less visible fine lines.
Retinol to blur away fine lines
For many, retinol is a cure-all anti-aging treatment. When applied topically it speeds up cell turnover, boosts collagen and elastin production by stimulating cellular repair at the deepest layers of the skin, and improves blood circulation by increasing blood-vessel formation to help achieve younger-looking, healthier skin.
If you’re looking to directly target fine lines which may have deepened with age, then regularly using a retinol-based cream is for you. Biotherm’s Blue Therapy Lift & Blur contains Blue Retinol to instantly penetrate every hollow on the surface of your skin to fill out fine lines, making wrinkles look smoother and skin as if lifted.
The Algae of Youth to repair damaged skin
Algae has been around since the beginning of time, however it’s only recently that we’re starting to understand the wonder of this powerful ingredient for anti-aging skin care. Algae of Youth, or Alaria Esculenta, is found native to Greenland’s glacial waters and has been extensively researched with regards to its anti-aging properties. Its effect on the skin is twofold; firstly neutralizing inflammation and boosting age-damaged proteins through the activation of the proteasome, and secondly speeding up cellular repair. In fact, its composition is similar to that of our skin’s natural membrane, so it penetrates the epidermis instantly and can speed up skin metabolism by up to 42% to heal, strengthen and rejuvenate the complexion.
Find this intriguing miracle ingredient in a whole host of Biotherm’s anti-aging serums, including Blue Therapy Accelerated Serum for overall anti-aging care, Blue Therapy Eye-Opening Serum to improve the appearance of under eyes, or for overnight rejuvenation with the Blue Therapy Serum-In-Oil. Benefit from the Algae of Youth’s powerful anti-aging properties, for smoother, depuffed, younger-looking skin in no time.
Marine Connectum to restructure your skin
Another wonder of blue biotechnology, Marine Connectum, is a sulfated sugar deriving from a marine microorganism, which demonstrates a unique affinity for the skin’s membrane, repairing and restructuring our complexion for youthful skin. Not only does it instantly smooth the skin’s surface and reinforce the skin’s natural barrier, but it also boosts the natural synthesis of crucial lipids and proteoglycans and recreates the ideal skin cohesion for better nutrient exchanges, creating a better environment for our skin to thrive in.
Discover Marine Connectum in the Blue Therapy Cream-In-Oil , which nourishes skin and repairs visible aging quickly for smoother, bouncier and more radiant skin. After first use, 41 women assessed this unique formula and found skin to increase in tone by 51% after first application.
Life Plankton to heal skin
Life Plankton is a microorganism which was found deep in the foothills of the French Pyrenees mountain range, and has since been harnessed by Biotherm’s scientists to heal and rejuvenate our skin. Containing a variety of 35 nutrients, vitamins, amino acids, glucids, lipids and trace elements, this powerful ingredient revives the skin’s natural functions to help create newborn skin in as little as 8 days.
Use Life Plankton Essence as a fundamental treatment before any of your other anti-aging products to help repair and renew your skin.
