5 Ingredients For Dramatically Younger Skin

Age is just a number, but no one likes looking old before their time. At a certain point, most of us are going to wake up one morning and realise that the days of carefree partying, casual drinks and late night talks can no longer be covered up by our youth alone. We start to notice the tell-tale signs of ageing - lines that shouldn’t be there, cheeks that weren’t supposed to sag, and sun spots that should not have spread. 

The truth is we can’t turn back the clock, but that doesn’t mean we can’t slow the hands of time. And yes, there are some ingredients that are better at helping you do this than others. Here are 5 ingredients that can help you attain dramatically younger skin: 





Japanese women are known for their youthful good looks and one of the reasons why is because of their love for CoQ10 - an enzyme that is naturally produced by the body but diminishes with age. Found in nearly all Japanese drugstores, this cult favourite ingredient is the ultimate insurance against ageing. Studies have shown that CoQ10 not only reduces the depth of wrinkles, it also helps your skin to produce collagen.

Near the end of July, dozens of Finnish grandmothers put on their boots, and head into the woods. The reason? To pick berries! Finland is home to all types of berries - including lingonberries, a superberry with a surprisingly high amount of resveratrol. This high amount of resveratrol is what gives lingonberries its amazing cell regenerating properties, making it one of the most potent superfoods for anti-aging.

Another Japanese classic, Matcha is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and antioxidants called polyphenols. One of the major polyphenols found in Matcha is called EGCG (or Epigallocatechin gallate), an age-reversing catechin that contains hundred times the antioxidant power of vitamins A, C and E. Matcha also has excellent anti-inflammatory properties, making it the perfect antidote for stressed and reactive skin.

What are peptides? When amino acids are combined in certain ways, peptides are formed. There are hundreds of different peptides but not all of them are created equal:

  • Carrier peptides deliver trace minerals to the skin and help boost collagen. 
  • Enzyme inhibitor peptides slow the skin’s natural breakdown of collagen. 
  • Neurotransmitter peptides can produce a ‘botox-like’ effect, blocking the release of chemicals that cause muscle movements. 
  • Signal peptides can help tell skin when to start producing collagen and elastin.

At Rooki Beauty, we are big fans of Rejuline - a biomimetic peptide that can induce the synthesis of collagen and elastin to create dramatically younger skin!
