Yes, there are some pretty high-tech anti-aging face creams on the market. Some with ingredients I can't even pronounce!
But, in my opinion, one of the most powerful, natural and over looked ingredients in anti-aging products is vitamin C.
Nothing helps even-out skin tone, increases collagen production, strengthen the skin barrier, reduce inflammation, and help protect and repair the skin from the sun – like natural ascorbic acid (vitamin C).
Although vitamin C comes in many forms, ascorbic acid being the most common, it goes by several other names.
If you can’t find ascorbic acid look for these phrases on the product label when shopping for an anti-aging creams because they are all forms of vitamin c:
However, keep in mind that ascorbic acid has been shown in clinical studies to be the most effective.

These ingredients help to reduce inflammation, firm and plump skin, protect your skin from other environmental aggressors. It's also a great pick-me-up cream to hydrate and brighten your complexion,
