How To Treat The Most Common Skin Concerns: The Best Ingredients For Your Skin

Common skin concerns come with age. While it is normal for your skin to change as you age, you should treat concerns like sagging, wrinkles, large pores, etc, so they are not visible to others. You will feel more confident and will have a better look at your skin. These are some of the ingredients that are great for treating the most common skin concerns. 



When you are young you think blemishes are your biggest problem. However, we need to say that blemishes can appear at any age and that no one can tell the reason why they appear. Acne showing up at an older age is not rare, and some of the causes can be hormones, clogged pores, or unsuitable skincare products. 


What You Can Do?

Azelaic Acid: This powerful acid is bacteria-killing and can slow down the signs of aging. People with rosacea should try azelaic acid - it should fade the marks that are left behind. It will brighten, smoothen, and boost the cell turnover. 


Salicylic Acid: Beta hydroxy acid derived from willow bark increases cell turnover. It is also great for hydration since it penetrates deep into your pores. 

Large Pores

Even though you can’t shrink the pores, you can actually make them look smaller. The sizes of pores on the face are usually genetic, but it isn’t the truth that you can’t do anything about them. With age the skin loses its elasticity, causing it to sag and stretch so it is normal for pores to appear larger than before. 


What You Can Do?

Alpha hydroxy acid: Glycolic acid should be one of the essential ingredients in your skincare. It removes dead skin cells, that are known for clogging the pores and creating dull skin appearance. 

Retinoids: There is little they can’t do. They promote skin cell turnover, and elasticity, and unclog the pores. The retinoids make skin firmer and allow the pores to appear smaller. 


Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Wrinkles and fine lines appear with age, which is completely normal. The skin loses collagen, elasticity, and the ability to hold the water for better hydration. Sun exposure, not wearing an SPF, and pollution can also speed up the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. With these two skin concerns, you can also experience bumpy skin which usually comes as the result of a build-up of dead skin cells. 


What You Can Do?

AHA: AHA’s are great for giving that instant glow to your face. They work on removing dead skin cells and promote smooth skin appearance. 


Hydration: Skin that lacks hydration can appear dull, with fine lines and wrinkles even more visible. Using a proper moisturizer and a serum that hydrates your skin (regardless of skin type) is crucial for this skin concern. 

Loss of Skin Firmness

Collagen and elastin are responsible for skin firmness. As with other skin concerns as we age, elastin and collagen production decrease, leading to loss of skin fullness and firmness. Then expect the appearance of the following skin concerns: sagging, bags, lines, and folds. 


What You Can Do?

Peptides: The most important thing in collagen production are strings of amino acids - peptides. They are essential for the functioning of the body and can be found in every human cell. 


Retinoids: Retinoids stimulate collagen production, keep the skin firm, and work on laxity prevention.
