We're here to share how to best incorporate the popular retinoid into your everyday life, what you should know about it, and how to best use it to achieve the most benefits and results.
Retinol is a commonly used ingredient in skin care products world-wide, but why? It's all because of the many benefits found in this derivative of Vitamin A.
Collagen within skincare has been a talking point within the beauty industry as a whole. But what does collagen actually do, and how can you include it in your regimen?
If you experience sensitivity in your skin but want the benefits of Retinol, the plant derived alternative Bakuchiol may be a good substitute. With antioxidant properties, Bakuchiol Serum embodies many of the properties of its Vitamin A counterpart and works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As we age, our skin can change and natural cell production and regeneration begins to slow down which brings new concerns to the surface. This generally begins to take place from the age 25+ , which is when we recommend introducing and adjusting your regimen to support cell rejuvenation.
The Inkey List co-founder Mark Curry chats to Dermatologist Dr Liu and beauty expert Sali Hughes about all things retinol. Here’s everything you need to know…
The skin on our neck often gets grouped in to our facial routine or receives a dose of our body care products but can often be neglected as an independent area of attention. Unfortunately, the neck is a key place that shows the signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and uneven texture as well as hyperpigmentation and discoloration - so it can be worth isolating for tailored TLC. Find out what products can be used to target the delicate skin on your neck.
There are a number of factors which can determine when under-eye wrinkles begin to appear, but generally speaking, many people tend to see them first forming in their late twenties and early thirties. This is when the skin’s production of collagen and elastin starts to slow down, making wrinkles and other lines more likely to show up. Learn more about what you can do to prevent and treat under-eye wrinkles here.
When it comes to anti-ageing, peptides are a powerful ingredient that you may have heard of, but what are they? Peptides, also known as polypeptides, are amino acids which form proteins in the skin. Find out more about Peptides, how they can be beneficial in your skincare routine and what INKEY List products contain this super ingredient.
It’s a term often connected to ingredients like collagen and peptides but what is ‘plump’ skin and why do we want it? Plump skin can be regarded as well-hydrated, firm with a natural fullness, roundness and bounciness. Its decline can be considered a sign of ageing and can also affect the brightness, texture and tone. Learn more about how to get plump skin, the best INKEY List products to support the production of elastin and collagen whilst giving hydration and other tips to help plump your skin.
Fine lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of our aging journey and, although they tell the tales of smiles shared and memories made, we can welcome some assistance to make their appearance a little more subtle. Learn about the science of collagen, elastin & peptides, what causes fine lines & wrinkles and what INKEY products target signs of aging.
