Just when you are just in the middle of enjoying your life then boom, you're suddenly in your 30’s. Whether we like it or not we cannot escape or stop ourselves from aging, to put it more harshly, there is now way we can stop from getting old.
Surprisingly, our skin starts aging at 25 years old. Yes, just at 25 years old our skin starts showing signs of skin aging like wrinkles, lines, sun spots and dark spots. Our skin elasticity also decreases as time goes by, that’s why our skin tends to be more dry than usual.
Although there is no way to stop yourself from aging (well not yet, probably in the future a scientist or miracle will be discovered, *cross finger*) there are so many ways you can try to delay these signs of skin aging, especially in skincare.
But what specific ingredients do you need to look for to help slow down skin aging? Here it is.
Snail mucin or snail secretion filtrate is rich in antioxidants and has the ability to stimulate the collagen production in our skin. It also has high moisturizing benefits that help to strengthen the skin barriers and retain or lock in moisture to the skin.
I highly recommend using Snail serum like the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, DEOPROCE Snail Recovery Brightening Ampoule. If your skin is more dry than usual I recommend not only using serum but also using a snail cream such as the COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream. The BENTON Snail Bee High Content Essence is also worth a try because it does not only have snail but also bee venom that also have anti aging benefits. If you are looking for a complete anti aging skincare set, best to try Snail Galac-Tox Revital Trio Set (Toner + Emulsion + Cream).
We naturally have collagen in our skin, it's a protein that not only can be found in skin but also in bones, muscles, ligaments or tendons. But as we age, the collagen in our body decreases, which results in dull skin, lines, wrinkles, weak bones, muscle ache and hair loss.
Collagen helps to make your skin healthy and aide to make your muscles,nails, bones and hair stronger and healthy. If you are looking for a collagen in face application form, I recommend GRITME C Enriched Nutri COLLAGEN Ampoule Serum, Neogen Sur.Medic+ Super Peptide 100 Collagen Lifting Serum and Coreana ORTHIA Perfect Collagen 24K Rose Gold Essence.
If you are looking into collagen with overall benefits, Collage supplements are best suitable for you. There are Collagen in powder form like the LEMONA Gyeol Collagen with Vitamin C Powder (FISH Collagen) and Collagen S & You 30 sachets (non halal). In tablet form, you can try the IHC Premium Quality Collagen Tablets (500mg x 120 tablets) (halal), IHC Premium Quality Collagen Tablets with Hyaluronic Acid (500mg x 120 tablets) (halal) , and Mega Collagen Tablets 15,000mg x 30 Tablets.
You can also get Collagen in gummy form like the GNM Collagen Gummies and in yummy jelly Innercol Collagen Pomegranate Jelly Stick -1,000 mg Low Molecular Collagen.
3. Peptide, Ceramide, Lactic Acid and Salmon
These powerful ingredients are one the building blocks of most effective anti aging cream or ampoule. Peptides make your skin tighter and firmer. Ceramides help to lock in moisture. Lactic acid brightens and smoothens the skin. On the other hand, Salmon or salmon oil have anti inflammatory benefits from fatty acids (omega 3) that balances skin hydration and prevents wrinkles and breakouts.
For skincare rich in peptides and ceramide, i highly recommend JEU DEMEURE Intensive Regenerating Cream and JEU DEMEURE Cell Boosting PEPTIDE Ampoule and JEU DEMEURE Intensive Regenerating EYE Cream. For Lactic Acid, try the Missha Time Revolution Night Repair PROBIO Ampoule and with Fatty acids get the CRE8SKIN Salmon Oil Cream.
