What does an anti-aging skincare regime mean?
This means that you use different products that target the signs of aging and prevent further lines and wrinkles. Depending on what products you use you can get some that help fades age spots and helps to stop the skin losing its elasticity. An anti-aging skincare regime is something that you should slowly start to introduce in your mid-20s as overtime your skin loses collagen and you want to prevent that for as long as possible.
What does it include?
Depending on how intense you would like your routine to be, you could go all out with Vitamin E, caffeine, ceramides, glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C in as many of your products as possible. For example, you would use an anti-aging cream cleanser, foaming cleaners tend to be drier, and drier skin tends to look older. Go for cream cleansers for a plump and line-free face. For a toner you don’t want to be using just rose water or something mixed with water, instead, try using something like a glycolic toner. Retinol toners are available now. Something with acids to exfoliate and treat your skin. Next up is a serum or retinol, retinol is amazing for helping reduce the signs of aging and preventing them. Afterwards, you’ll want to use a really thick and nourishing anti-aging cream. If you’re going out for the day, make sure to add a high SPF.
Ingredients to look out for?
Vitamin E is really the star ingredient to look out for. Not only does it help with pollution and UV rays, but it’s amazing at helping the signs of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A, also known as Retinol is the main one to look out for, but be careful and do research before starting to use any products with it in. Especially if they are solely retinol. Vitamin C, as we all know, is another fantastic ingredient and not just for your insides! For your skin, it helps with UV damage. Hyaluronic acid is a seriously impressive ingredient as it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water and therefore helps keep your skin hydrated.
