#AskStella: An Explanation of Skincare Ingredient Buzzwords

Most buzz words are popular for a time but are temporary at best until a new and more trendy word comes along. The problem with them is they can have an unnecessary influence on consumers if they are not properly understood. Today we offer an explanation of some of the most popular buzz words in the skincare industry today.

Anti-aging – A broad term which relates to products focused on the prevention or correction of aging of the skin.

Peptides –Link together amino acids and when used in skin care products, act like Botox does for the skin, by keeping it in place. This effect can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smooth the skin lasting up to 9 hours per application

Collagen – A protein which essentially holds the body together. With relation to skin, it is the reason we have firm, elastic skin (or not). As we age we lose on average 1.5% of our body’s collagen. This is why we see the skin begin to sag. Collagen is used in skin care to fade the appearance of wrinkles. It’s also effective when taken as a liquid supplement because it helps the infrastructure of the dermis and stimulates collagen production internally.

Hyaluronic Acid – Has the ability to retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water so when it’s used in skincare products it helps to reduce established and pronounced wrinkles as they are plumped with water.

Vitamin C – An antioxidant used in skincare products to protect the skin from environmental damage caused by UVA/UVB rays and free radicals. It corrects and prevents visible signs of aging.

Botox – a prescriptive medicine used in skin care to treat frown lines and crow’s feet.

Fillers – Cosmetic tissue fillers used to fill deep wrinkles making the face appear smoother.

They may be trendy words but many of them are highly effective when used in quality skin care products. When you are shopping for skin care, be sure that the active ingredients you are interested in are listed in the top 5 ingredients or they aren’t likely to be very effective.
