One often wonders what should one apply to delay signs of ageing ?

The main ingredient  of all anti ageing creams is – Vitamin A. It’s also called retinoid. Main retinoid present in majority of anti ageing creams is – tretinoin.

As wall is made of bricks, skin is made up of collagen. Collagen is the main strength providing block of skin. As collagen becomes weak, skin becomes loose.  Ageing, sun, stress, junk foo , lack of exercise are the key causative reasons behind collagen weakening.

Vitamin A or retinoids boosts new collagen production. As new collagen forms skin becomes tight and bright. It also keeps exfoliating the superficial dead layer of skin. The pigment formed due to excessive sun exposure sheds off with superficial dead skin. Thus,  keeping the pigmentory changes under check.
