As we age, our skin starts to show signs of aging like wrinkles, sagging skin, and age spots. Regarding anti-aging skincare, there are a few key ingredients you should always look for.
There are so many anti aging products on the market these days, and it can be hard to know which ones will work. That's why we've put together a list of the best anti aging ingredients for 2023. These ingredients help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and they can also help improve skin elasticity and firmness.
Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that can help to protect the skin from free radical damage. It can also help to improve skin moisture levels and elasticity. Vitamin E is in many skincare products, including serums, creams, and oils. It has been used in dermatology since the 1960s, and it is still one of the best anti aging ingredients today.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. It helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump. Unfortunately, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid as we age, leading to dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles. As a result, the skin can become dull, dry, and wrinkled without the right amount of moisture. Hyaluronic acid is a potent humectant that can help to improve skin moisture levels.

Shea butter is a fat derived from the shea tree's nuts. It has been used for centuries in Africa for its skin-healing properties. Shea butter is an excellent emollient, which can help soften and moisturize the skin. It is also rich in vitamins A, E, and F, which can help to protect the skin from free radical damage. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to soothe the skin.
Citric acid is another powerful antioxidant that can help to protect the skin from free radical damage. It can also help to brighten the skin and even out skin tone. Lemon or other citrus-based skincare products contain Citric acid. It promotes exfoliation and can help to unclog pores. This ingredient is considered safe for any skin type, especially oily skin.
Topical applications containing citric acid have been proven to treat acne vulgaris or common acne effectively.
You would probably think about wires when you hear about copper. But copper is an antioxidant for skincare, it aids wound healing and helps collagen and elastin production, so it is essential in any topical anti-aging treatment. It can also prevent and combat acne due to its biocidal properties, and it aids the skin in reducing inflammation and heal after shaving and after treatments like laser, stimulating new skin growth.
Copper enhances firmness and density, texture, and tone. Overall, it improves skin's well-being. Skincare products marketed as "anti-aging" contain copper.
Beyond its traditional uses, copper has several attributes that can significantly benefit our health. For example, Manuel Olivares, a researcher at the Institute of Nutrition and Food Technology (INTA), confirms that "copper skin care is essential for the production of melanin (skin pigmentation), as well as for the function that produces the cross-linking of collagen and elastin fibers, which are involved in skin elasticity." Specialists say that the lack of elasticity can be caused by a lack of minerals such as zinc, copper, and silicon.
Zinc is another essential mineral that assists antioxidant enzymes in the skin. It also helps to regulate sebum production and protect the skin from environmental stressors. Zinc can be found in many skincare products, including sunscreens, serums, and creams. In addition, zinc is essential for preventing wrinkle formation. It strengthens the cell membrane, helps to produce collagen and elastin, and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Skin cells are mainly dependent on zinc's powerful properties. Therefore, topical zinc for skin is essential as it works to maintain youthful skin, even if your skin has already been damaged by the aging process, primarily because it stimulates the immune system and antioxidant defenses against aging and age-related diseases.
Preventing and treating wrinkles and fine lines may seem challenging, but topical zinc is the way to slow down the aging process. Surprisingly (or not), UVA and UVB rays cause 90 percent of skin damage, according to physician Ivona Percec from Penn Medicine. In addition, this anti-aging mineral has one of the highest UVA and UVB coverage of all sunscreen ingredients in America. Discover more zinc benefits for the skin!
Redox Technology is a science that uses electrons to reduce skin oxidation. This technology simulates the effect of an ionic zinc-copper superoxide dismutase. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme found in all cells. This enzyme helps to protect the cells from damage caused by free radicals.
AETHEION® Redox Technology combines the power of copper and zinc to create a SOD effect that reduces the daily free radicals that damage the skin cells. The AETHEION® Redox Technology comes with 98% pure cationic copper ions, allowing it to be synergistic with zinc and act as the perfect redox mechanism for your skin. Copper is exceptional for the skin. It is required for collagen production, maintaining the cellular communication of connective tissues and the myelin sheath. Learn more about Redox Technology.
