Six Intelligent Ingredients Every Woman Should Be Using In Her 20s - Part One

Posted on

 

Implementing a preventative skincare ritual in your 20’s will fortify your skin against atmospheric aging to maintain ageless beauty. By harnessing the power of highly-effective intelligent ingredients in your ritual, you can protect your skin against the environmental assaults of urban pollution, smoking and UV damage collectively known as atmospheric ageing and the most significant factor that will age you faster than your genetics.      

Vitamin A

Retinol is everything you would expect from an all-rounder superstar ingredient, as it acts on a cellular level within the skin’s epidermis and dermis, where it normalises the skin’s behaviour and gene expression to promote healthy skin. Retinol increases collagen production and skin desquamation (skin slough off) encouraging faster cellular turnover to promote a refined, resurfaced, retextured, even toned, and wrinkle-free appearance.

Containing the highest percentage of retinol in the Ocinium range, the Elemental A + C +E Serum harnesses the power of this ingredient in the form of retinyl palmitate, a natural Vitamin A derivative to provide anti-oxidant and age-defiance benefits without irritation or inflammation. Incorporating this hero ingredient into your routine in your twenties will ensure your skin retains its youthful and dewy glow.

Remember, retinol can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so it is essential to wear a broad spectrum SPF while using any product with retinol in it.

Niacinamide

It is increasingly common for women in their 20’s and 30’s to experience breakouts. Niacinamade, also known as Vitamin B3 is a cellular communicating ingredient that transcends the skin’s surface and reaches to the deepest sub-layers of the skin to tell the cells how to behave, encouraging normal and healthy skin function. Our Immortelle Vitamin B3 Serum contains high-potency Vitamin B3 to balance sebum production, reduce inflammation, calm irritations, decrease breakouts and restore the skins calmness and clarity. This multi-functional intelligent ingredient works tirelessly to increase the skin’s immune response and reinstate a flawless complexion.

Vitamin C

With collagen depleting at 1% per year commencing in your mid 20’s it is important to stimulate the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, while also accelerating the skin’s ability to repair. Dark spots and pigmentation often appears in your twenties due to the impact of oxidative stress, which increases the breakdown of collagen, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Ocinium’s Luminosity Vitamin C Serum contains a highly bio-active form of Vitamin C to effect maximum change in the skin by boosting the production of collagen and specifically brightening your skin for a luminous, even-toned and smooth complexion.

Make sure to keep an eye out for part two where we will discuss three more intelligent ingredients that every woman in her twenties should incorporate into her routine in order to achieve ageless beauty.
