How Do Anti-Aging Creams Work?

Want a younger, more perfect-looking you? Skin can stay firm and stretchy thanks to protein fibers called collagen and elastin in the tissue beneath the surface. But environmental factors like smoking or ultraviolet rays from the sun can produce free radicals that damage skin cells’ ability to make more of these supports. Anti-wrinkle products claim they keep the skin surface fresh and rejuvenate these cells, but does their chemistry legit?

  1. Awesome video, subscribing! It would be great if you guys had a video on all the vitamins, I saw Ms.Beautyphile had one on vitamin D that was quite informative. It seems like a topic that keeps coming up.

    Thankfully, atleast science, can’t be called fake news 😉

  2. Alright cousin!!! Great job both informative and interesting. Well done Trina, proud of you.

  3. i love your content and i subed i was thinking if i can get a shoutout or if you can sub to my yt thanks see yah!

  4. Great video! learned a lot, but what about scar-removing creams? are they effective? Just a suggestion for another video

  5. I had a facial skin problem that didn’t go away for months. I washed daily and used creams but nothing helped. I suspected a bacterial infection. So I soaked a paper towel with Listerine mouthwash and applied it to my face, leaving it there for half an hour. The next day, there was a significant sign of improvement. A few days later, it was gone. I repeated this for a week just to make sure that whatever bacteria was there was not coming back. But as a bonus, my skin got even healthier, softer, smoother and looked younger than before.

  6. Great video! I learned a lot — and will definitely think twice before spending $$ on creams with dubious scientific evidence that they actually work.

  7. At 0:19 there is a slight flaw.
    There is a LOT of living skin cells in the epidermis; the melanocytes that help protect the skin from UV-radiation is found in the basal layer (stratum basale) of the epidermis, and you have tons of immune cells in the spinous layer (stratum spinosum), just above the basal layer.
    Only the outermost layer, the cornified layer (stratum corneum), is composed of dead cells 🙂
