As the years pass, signs of aging start to show on our faces. But this doesn’t mean you can’t take care of your skin or minimize the signs. There are a bunch of antiaging ingredients that can rejuvenate your skin’s natural appearance. Here are a few K-beauty antiaging ingredients you should know about:
• Snail Mucin
Snail mucin is one of the most potent K-beauty antiaging ingredients. It might sound weird, but snail mucin is rich in peptides that can help your skin boost collagen production naturally. Snail mucin also contains hyaluronic acid and glycolic acid that hydrate and gently exfoliate the skin. It’s a powerful ingredient you can use to reduce hyperpigmentation, scarring, and fine lines, making your skin plump and soft.
Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, offers tons of benefits to the skin. It supports the skin’s protective barrier, helps retain moisture more effectively, evens out hyperpigmentation, brightens dull complexions, and boosts collagen production. It’s very similar to retinol but can cause less irritation and redness.
You’ll notice peptides, which are formed from amino acid bonds, in various K-beauty products. The most popular peptides in skincare are collagen peptides and copper peptides. Collagen peptides help the skin generate more collagen, making skin look younger and fresher. On the other hand, copper peptides can boost the healing process and lower redness and inflammation.
• Green Tea Extract
Green tea is a popular drink with various health benefits, but it’s also a notable antiaging ingredient in Korean skincare. Green tea boasts an abundance of antioxidants that combat skin damage. Furthermore, the caffeine found in green tea aids in reducing puffiness, while the polyphenols facilitate skin self-repair.
• Licorice Root Extract
Licorice root extract is a gentle and effective ingredient for brightening the skin, as licorice contains glabridin and liquirtin. This ingredient can reduce hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and melasma. Licorice is also rich in antioxidants that help the skin repair and fight damage.
