Preventing wrinkles and other signs of skin damage can actually be easy... truly! By wearing sunscreen habitually, exfoliating regularly, and using anti-aging products as intended, you can maintain a glow and keep time from showing itself on your skin.
When it comes to moisturizers the golden rule is to choose a lotion that contains SPF. A SPF lotion works double-time to moisturize and protect you from UVA and UVB rays. Plus, sun block is never forgotten since it is already built into the moisturizing part of your skincare regimen.
Typically, dermatologists recommend a sunscreen with a SPF of 15 or higher. For a lightweight and fragrance-free moisturizer we recommend the Oil Free Facial Lotion with SPF 15 by Anthony Logistics. This airy moisturizer combines aloe vera with silk amino acids to help retain skin’s moisture while protecting against environmental damage and helping to minimize the signs of aging.
If you prefer a sun block with a little more protection, try Max All Day Moisture Defense Lotion with SPF 30 by Peter Thomas Roth. This moisturizer is oil-free and rich in anti-oxidants, providing extra sheer protection with a non-greasy feel. Plus, it contains an anti-aging complex and is suitable for all skin types.
Benefits are abundant with skin exfoliation. It helps with unclogging pores, buffing away dead skin cells, improving uneven tone and texture and keeping fine lines and wrinkles in check.
When choosing a skin exfoliant consider your skin type. If your skin tends to be oily, consider a scrub that helps remove oil, dirt, makeup, and other daily toxins that can clog pores. Try the Bamboo Silk Foaming Face Scrub by Lather. For a dryer skin type, opt for a chemical exfoliator. These types of products help tighten and firm skin without drying it out. We love the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant by Paula’s Choice. If your skin is sensitive, look for an enzyme exfoliant which helps to remove dead skin without scrubbing.
Some exfoliating tips to keep in mind: Exfoliate, at a minimum, once a week. If your skin is less sensitive you can exfoliate two to three times, but don’t overdo it! Be gentle, especially when using scrubs. If your skin starts to get irritated by a product, discontinue use immediately, and always remember to moisturize after exfoliating so your skin doesn’t dry out.
It’s never too early to think about anti-aging skincare products. Aging may be a universally human experience, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hide its signs. There are three products that are commonly sought after when it comes to anti-aging products; cleansers, creams, and eye creams. Like exfoliating, remember to think about your skin type.
It all begins with anti-aging cleansers. By switching from your current cleanser to an anti-aging cleanser, you’ll be building defenses immediately.
For a light anti-aging cleanser consider Lineless® Foaming Cleanser by Dr. Brandt. It gently dissolves makeup and impurities while providing a soft, smooth feel without stripping the skin of natural oils.
Anti-aging creams are made for dual duty. When looking for a great anti-aging cream it needs to act as a moisturizer too.
One great anti-aging cream is Peptide Firming Complex by Arcona. It is a powerful anti-aging serum rich in skin-rejuvenating peptides that help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also aids in combating the loss of skin elasticity while repairing age-damage. It does just about everything!
If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, shouldn’t that reflect the young beauty within? We think so! As we age it becomes increasingly important to take special care of the delicate skin around your eyes, and it’s easy to round out your anti-aging skincare regime with anti-aging eye cream.
Consider Advanced SPF 37 Anti-aging Eye Cream with Oat Peptide by Supergoop! This anti-aging eye cream is perfect for sensitive skin and is formulated from a 100% natural oat peptide complex. This multipart formula boosts collagen production while hydrating the skin, reflecting a radiant, youthful appearance.
When choosing any anti-aging product, always consider your skin type. After all, you know it best! If a product starts to irritate, try something else. By following these guidelines you will be able to confidently choose the products that are right for you.
