Mastering labels: Which ingredients to look for in anti-aging makeupWhat a product claims to do is one thing, but how's your makeup know-how when it comes to selecting the best anti-aging products? Technology is always evolving, but here are a few key ingredients you should look for when selecting the best of what the beauty world has to offer today.

Good Housekeeping editor Rosemary Ellis appeared on Good Morning America on Monday to share what the industry's leading makeup artists and dermatologists have to say on this issue. According to Ellis, matte makeup or foundation without the proper moisturizing ingredients can emphasize fine lines, so look for products with glycerin and hyaluronic acid.

Retinol and peptides are also the best wrinkle fixes on the market today, as they help boost collagen production and cell turnover. Ellis recommends combining these products with a good SPF to maximize the anti-aging effects.

Finding a good night cream that uses one or more of these ingredients will also dramatically enhance your results. Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Night uses a blend of eight anti-aging peptides and neuropeptides, retinol, glycolic acid, aloe vera, vitamins A C & E and pro vitamin B5.
