Top 5 Anti-Aging Ingredients

Choosing the right products for your anti-aging needs can be overwhelming at times. Luckily, at Lucere Dermatology, we carry the top medical grade skincare available in Canada. These lines are hand-picked by board certified Dermatologist, Dr.Taher.

  1. Retinol

Retinol, also known as Vitamin A, is the number 1 powerhouse ingredient to address all signs of aging. As we age, cellular turnover slows down and retinol has the ability to speed it back up and tell the skin cells to behave properly! Collagen breakdown is another sign of aging and retinol decreases the amount of that breakdown and stimulates new fresh collagen. This incredible product firms and tightens the skin, decreases pore size and blackheads, improves skin texture, and brightens pigmentation.

  1. Peptides

Peptides are proteins; chains of amino acids in the skin. Without them our skin would fall apart; they rebuild and repair the skin. Peptides also have the ability to relax certain facial muscles: the perfect addition to Botox!

  1. Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid is a skin care staple. It works by gently dissolving the upper layers of the skin. It’s an exfoliant without the abrasiveness of a traditional scrub. This makes glycolic acid a great choice for sensitive skin. Glycolic acid evens out skin tone and gives the skin a beautiful texture.

  1. L-Ascorbic acid

Also known as Vitamin C, L-ascorbic acid is an antioxidant that helps to prevent free radical damage resulting from pollution and UV rays. It is perfect when combined with a daily SPF. Vitamin C also helps to eliminate dark spots and smooths fine lines and wrinkles.

  1. Zinc Oxide/ Titanium Dioxide

No surprises here: sunscreen prevents photo damage and also reduces the risk of skin cancer by 80%. There are countless studies that prove that, even during the winter, a daily SPF needs to be applied. At Lucere Dermatology, we carry a wide range of sunscreens to suit your daily needs. From organic, to tinted, to primers, to moisturizers, we have anything and everything to make applying an SPF as easy as 1 2 3.
