10 Anti-Aging Beauty Products You Wish You Knew About

10 Anti-Aging Beauty Products You Wish You Knew About

Do you know someone who just doesn’t seem to age? What’s their secret? We all long for more youthful looking skin, but often the products we’ve used for ages just don’t seem to do the trick. You might feel like you’ve tried everything, but it may be that you just aren’t aware of some of the most effective ways to fight aging skin out there. Here are 10 surprising anti-aging beauty products that you can use to turn back the clock.

1. Hyaluronic Acid

This superstar ingredient is everywhere right now! Found in everything from moisturizer to makeup, hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates your skin, instantly smoothing out fine lines like nothing else can. It can retain up to 1,000 times (yes, you read that right!) its weight in water, so it’s no wonder that it is a major player in the anti-aging world.

2. Coconut Oil

It’s not just for cooking! Daily use of coconut oil under your eyes and as an overall moisturizer has been shown to prevent wrinkles, and gives your skin a dewy glow. And bonus, it’s all-natural and smells great! coconut oil

3. Antioxidants

If you find a beauty product that contains a lot of antioxidants, chances are it will improve the overall health of your skin. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, protecting your skin from damaging elements like sun, wind, and pollution.

4. Water

It’s not really a beauty product per say, but it has such an effect on your skin’s health and appearance that is made the list! It’s so easy to forget to drink water throughout the day, but keeping your skin hydrated is key to keeping it looking young. Want soft, smooth, supple skin? Keep chugging that water!

5. Avocados

Who doesn’t love to eat avocados? Aside from being packed with nutrients and healthy fats, you may be surprised to learn that avocados have the ability to penetrate deeply into the your skin cells, keeping it nourished and looking young. That’s great news for avocado lovers…so bring on the guac!

6. Vitamin C

If you look closely, you’ll find that the best anti-aging serums and creams contain vitamin C. This is due to its antioxidant properties and ability to smooth out wrinkles and diminish age spots.

7. Almond Oil

Another skin-friendly secret is the use of almond oil in anti-aging beauty products. Think that’s nuts (bad pun!)? Think again. Fatty acids in the oil act as an emollient, and the oil is a natural exfoliator, ridding skin of excess dirt and oil and encouraging cell growth and moisture retention.

8. Sugar

We should limit our intake of sugar, but there’s nothing wrong with using it on your skin. Sugar mixed with a little olive, coconut, or almond oil works as a wonderful natural exfoliator. And as we all know, exfoliated skin is happy skin.

9. Retinol

Chances are you’ve heard of this ingredient, but do you really know what it does? As one of the most-used anti-aging ingredients, retinol—or more commonly known as Vitamin A—is a superstar when it comes to smoothing and firming up the skin. It works by encouraging cell turnover and collagen production in aging skin. Check out this Anti-Aging Retinol Cream from Geneva Naturals.

10. Sunscreen

Ok, you probably already knew about this one, but it’s so important it’s worth mentioning again. Nothing ages skin like the sun. If you make it a rule to never go outside for a prolonged period of time without the protection of a good sunscreen, you’ll be doing your skin a major favor! Anti Aging Skin Care Line So there you have it! Some might not have been too surprising, but it’s good to know there are products out there that can actually help in the fight against aging. Now you can fill your arsenal with effective products, such as the line from Geneva Naturals pictured above, to keep your skin radiant!
