Imagine looking five, ten, or even more years younger than your true age. Here are some natural skin care ingredients that can help you do that. We’ll briefly explain the benefits of each one, and we promise not to get too geeky or technical.
Retinol is a member of the vitamin A family. It stimulates your body to produce collagen, which can reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Firmer and smoother skin – sounds good so far!
Some other benefits of retinol to your skin:
· Rough patches of skin get softer.
· New skin cells are created.
· Age spots fade.
· New blood vessels form in the skin, which improves your skin tone.
The cool thing is that all of those benefits have been clinically proven and are backed up by dermatologists.
Retinol should be used as part of your nighttime skin care regimen and not worn when you’re out in the sunshine. This is because those new skin cells stimulated by retinol are sensitive to sun exposure. Avoid retinol in products like lipstick or foundation that are designed to be worn all day, unless you’re staying indoors.
2. Vitamin C
Vitamin C isn’t just for colds. It’s a powerful antioxidant. That means it fights free radicals, which are molecules that damage your cells.
Vitamin C is also great for your skin. It naturally exists in high levels in the skin, though these levels drop as we age. Exposure to pollution, ultraviolet light, and smoking also reduce the vitamin C in your skin. This leads to wrinkles and dry skin, so replenishing your skin’s vitamin C can help you look younger. Vitamin C from food or pills isn’t helpful here, since very little of it makes it to the skin. You need it in a form that you can apply to your skin.
Like retinol, vitamin C stimulates the production of collagen, so it fights wrinkles and skin lines.
Vitamin C is proven to be more powerful when combined with vitamin E, so let’s talk a bit about that.
3. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is another important antioxidant. Applied to the skin, it has a powerful anti-aging effect. It reduces UV damage. It makes your body create more collagen. It relieves dry and rough skin. It helps reduce age spots and stimulates the production of new skin cells. It even helps reduce stretch marks and heals damaged skin.
All of these benefits of vitamin E are enhanced when it’s combined with vitamin C.
Bonus: Another vitamin you should use in your skin care regimen is vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), especially if you like smooth, soft skin.
Vitamin B5 helps heal the skin and relieves dry or rough skin. It’s a natural moisturizer.

4. Organic Green Tea
Green tea isn’t just for drinking. It’s packed with EGCG, an antioxidant that helps your body protect its DNA, a process that helps prevent skin cancer.
Green tea also contains catechins, which fight inflammation, redness, and swelling. We love the soothing effect of this.
Concerned about puffy eyes or dark circles? Green tea contains tannins and caffeine, both of which shrink the blood vessels around your eyes.
Green tea is antibacterial and unclogs your pores. It helps hydrate your skin and keeps it firm by maintaining the collagen. It can even stimulate hair growth.

5. Botanical Hyaluronic Acid.
Don’t let the tough-sounding name fool you. It’s actually a sugar molecule that can hold 1000 times its weight in water, a property that makes it an amazing moisturizer. It’s produced naturally in our bodies, but the amount drops as we age. This molecule is one of the reasons why babies have such smooth, plump skin.
Botanical simply means it’s natural and derived from plants, not artificial or made from animals. Some companies get theirs from roosters, believe it or not.
Botanical hyaluronic acid keeps your skin feeling soft and smooth. If you want to revitalize and rejuvenate your skin, this little bit of sugar is hard to beat.
