People often asked me what ingredients in skin care products are necessary. I think my order would be 1) hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid; 2) anti-aging ingredients such as antioxidant; 3) proteins such as collagen, amino acids.
- Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate polymer often described as a goo substance. Simply put, the main functions of hyaluronic acid on the skin are hydrating, promoting wound repair, improving wrinkles, and smoothing the skin, etc.
- Antioxidants – are compounds that inhibit oxidation, a chemical reaction that can generate free radicals and chain reactions that can damage the cells of an organism. Antioxidants are essential for maintaining the health of vital organs, and the skin is no exception. Especially sunburned skin basically is caused by oxidation. Free radicals can oxidize and subsequently degrade the structural components of the skin, such as collagen, leading to a weakened skin barrier and subsequent sagging, wrinkles, and fine lines. Therefore, antioxidants can actively prevent this skin damage. Vitamins C, E, and various fatty acids, plus many plant extracts are rich in antioxidants.
- Protein – Protein is one of the key components of skin tissue, and adequate protein intake is essential for plump, healthy skin. To allow the skin to absorb protein directly, the effect is better. Healthy, plump and smooth skin needs collagen and amino acid.
However, the structure of human skin is amazing and complex. For the above ingredients to be effective, various nutrients must be present to play a role.
