Anti-ageing creams are big business. However, while all promise miracle results, what are the ingredients to look out for that could actually make a difference? After all, a skin product is only as good as what goes in it.

Coenzyme Q10

This is a nutrient that helps to regulate cell energy production, and can help to protect against sun damage as well as help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Unlike some harsher ingredients, it’s safe to use on your eye area to help with crow’s feet.

Retinol

This is also known as Vitamin A, and has anti-oxidant properties. It’s often used in many non-prescription skin creams. The anti-oxidant effects of this cream help to fight free radicals, which are responsible for many signs of ageing.

Copper Peptides

Copper peptides combine trace elements of copper with small pieces of protein, which can help to boost collagen production in your skin. This can give a plumper, fuller complexion as well as boosting anti-oxidants.

Hydroxy Acids

There are a few types of hydroxyl acids, but they all work in similar ways. Each works to exfoliate your skin, removing the outer layer of dead cells revealing smoother, fresher skin, as well as helping this new skin to grow.

Tea Extracts

You might have heard of the tea-bag-on-the-eyes trick to reduce tiredness, and tea extracts work on the same principle. They reduce inflammation and contain anti-oxidants, which helps to get rid of free radicals.

So called miracle creams can often be expensive, and quite frequently don’t fulfil all their promises.
