Doubters might think that no cream or lotion could possibly make you look younger. And although a healthy dose of skepticism is always good, when it comes to anti-aging creams like Beautcy, the scientific community has already weighed in: they work. Today, we’re going to take a look at the specific ways that anti-aging creams like Beautcy work on a molecular level to create younger looking skin.
The Power Of Peptides
Ever heard of peptides? These amazing little proteins are plentiful in younger people, and they have one job: keep the body abundant in healthy skin cells. They do this in two ways: first, by constantly stimulating the genesis of new skin cells; and secondly, by repairing existing, damaged skin cells.
As you get older, your body naturally begins to produce less and less collagen and elastin, which are two huge contributors to pert, glowing, and young-looking skin. One of the main reasons that collagen and elastin production declines as we age is actually the fact that our peptide production steeply drops off as we near middle age. So, by using products containing a verifiably effective formulation of peptides, you can jump-start your skin’s production of new skin cells even once you’re past their naturally-occurring peak.
Common Approaches To Anti-Aging
Besides peptides, anti-aging creams have some other tricks up their sleeve to help you look younger. As with most things, the best overall anti-aging regimen will be one that combines several different approaches for an all-around, multi-faceted boost to your appearance. These things will work together synergistically to create the absolute best result possible.
- Antioxidants are natural compounds found in foods rich in vitamins A, C, and E that can help promote exfoliation, clear complexion, and even guard against the development of certain forms of cancer. When you eat a diet rich in antioxidants, and supplement that with a skincare regimen that includes products containing antioxidants, you’re establishing a healthy foundation for the other aspects of your anti-aging treatment.
- Other than aging, do you know what the main enemy of your skin is? If you guessed sun exposure and UV radiation, you’re absolutely right. Let’s put it this way: all the most advanced and high-quality anti-aging creams in the world will only be so effective if you’re not actively guarding against additional damage to your skin. That means using sun protection with an SPF high enough to actually provide some shielding (think 30 SPF+). Otherwise, the sun will age your skin faster than you can repair it.
- Don’t be frightened by the presence of the word “acid” in alpha-hydroxy acids. This particular acid is actually quite good for your skin (in moderation), as it encourages the cycle of skin renewal to continue, helping you exfoliate and shed dead skin cells to make way for the new. Be careful, though -- products rich in alpha-hydroxy acids can make you a little more sensitive to the sun, so always use sun protection as mentioned before.
The New Science Behind Beautcy
- Beautcy uses all the above skincare technology -- but so do many of the anti-aging creams that have been on the market for almost a decade. What truly sets Beautcy apart is its proprietary formula with an active ingredient that has been shown in lab trials to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles to the naked eye in as little as 9 days. The study found that after 2 months of continuous, twice-daily Beautcy usage, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles were dramatically reduced.
A big part of those results has to do with how Beautcy targets your dermal matrix -- the underlying “skeletal” structure of skin that contributes to its firmness and tone. Reducing fine lines by itself is great, but when you can simultaneously restore collagen production to lift and firm a sagging dermal matrix, the overall effect is one that makes you look at a face and think “young skin.”
