Question: Are natural products effective?
"The most effective antiaging natural ingredients are generally alpha hydroxy acids that are derived from fruit enzymes," Sarkar noted. "They help to uncover glowing, fresh skin and banish the dull layer of dead skin that many people have. They also make skin look more even toned by addressing dark spots."
If you prefer a more grainy exfoliate, try sugar! "Brown sugar is gentle enough to not irritate skin but has enough heft to get rid of dead skin cells."
Facial oils are another natural antiager that help to moisturize and keep the skin looking plumper. "Naturally occurring retinols aren't as effective as the ones made in a factory, but because they're generally formulated as oils, they're much less irritating. Rosehip oil works well, but be prepared to wait some time to see results," Sarkar said.
