Anti-Aging & Wrinkles
Start Wearing Sunscreen SPF 30 or Higher Every Day Wear a broad spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or higher every day. Even if it’s cloudy. Sun damage is the number one cause of skin aging. Telltale signs of sun damage include skin discolorations (aka dark spots), fine lines, wrinkles, and rough skin texture—all of the signs we also associate with aging skin Don’t Sleep in Your Makeup Give your skin a break by washing away your makeup and all the environmental stressors your skin has been exposed to during the day. Washing off all your makeup before bed also gives you the opportunity to apply anti-aging treatment products to perfectly cleansed skin for maximum absorption and maximum benefit. Develop a Daily Anti-Aging Skincare Routine • Research the best skincare products for aging skin to find ones that are high-quality. Also, select products that are formulated for your skin type. For example, if you have oily skin, don’t choose a rich moisturizing cream. • Start simply with facial cleansing and moisturizing in the morning and evening. Make sure your daytime moisturizer contains SPF 30 or higher. • Depending on your skin’s specific needs, add in non-astringent toning, non-abrasive exfoliation and serum/treatment steps to round out your anti-aging skincare regimen. Lead a Healthy Lifestyle Finally, the best anti-aging skincare includes caring for yourself as a whole, so remember to: • Take care of your body - eat a healthy diet, stay hydrated, exercise regularly, set a regular sleep schedule, and don’t smoke. • Take care of your mind - spend time with loved ones and practice stress reduction and relaxation techniques.
Anti-Aging & Wrinkles
The best anti-aging skincare regimen starts with strengthening and protecting your skin to help it function at its very best regardless of your age. The following steps should form the foundation of your anti-aging skincare regimen. Use these as a starting point and then add and adjust to fit to your specific skin type and anti-aging concerns. 1. Use Broad Spectrum Sunscreen With SPF 30 Or Higher Every Day Although it’s generally not the first step in an anti-aging skincare routine, wearing sunscreen every day, rain or shine, is absolutely the most important step. That’s why we’re putting it first on our list. The sun’s rays, even when you can’t see them, are the number one cause of skin aging (i.e., brown spots and discolorations, and fine lines and wrinkles). So it’s vital that your anti-aging skincare routine include daily use of a broad spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or higher. Otherwise, all your other anti-aging skincare efforts will not produce the results you want. 2. Wash Your Face Twice Daily Cleanse your face twice per day with a gentle face wash formulated for your specific skin type (i.e., oily, dry, or combination). Be sure to remove your makeup before you go to bed! Leaving your makeup on overnight can clog pores leading to breakouts, blackheads, and skin inflammation. Plus, during the day, your skin is exposed to dirt, sweat, oil and environmental pollutants, all of which can cause your skin stress so wash it away before bed to give your skin rest. Bonus reason: perfectly cleansed skin will help your anti-aging treatment products absorb better. 3. Consider Using Toner With Anti-Aging Ingredients Although it’s not an imperative, you may find you want to restore balance to your skin post-cleanse with a gentle facial toner. Look for a toner that contains ingredients known to soothe skin and be beneficial for anti-aging such as antioxidants, ceramides or hyaluronic acid. The idea here is to restore and boost your skin’s natural barrier, so avoid astringent and/or alcohol based toners that can strip your skin and cause irritation. 4. Exfoliate Regularly with Either a Chemical or Physical Exfoliant Aging skin does not shed skin cells as quickly as younger skin. Regular exfoliation helps correct this process and reveals smoother, more radiant younger-looking skin. Chemical exfoliant treatments such as alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs) or Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA or salicylic acid) help to gently slough away rough, dead skin cells and unclog pores. Physical exfoliants, such as jojoba beads, physically clear away dead skin cells on the surface of skin. If you use a physical exfoliant, beware of harsh, abrasive face scrubs that can tear at your skin and cause damage. 5. Treat Your Skin With An Anti-Aging Serum or Moisturizer Follow the exfoliation step with a facial serum or moisturizer formulated with ingredients geared to your specific anti-aging concerns. For example, you may want to try a vitamin C serum for firmness and discolorations or a moisturizer that contains retinol for fine lines and wrinkles. If you choose a serum, be sure to follow it with a sunscreen during the day. If you are opting for a moisturizer during the day, make sure it contains SPF 30 or higher.
