Let’s get one thing straight; there is no such thing as “too early” to start following an anti-aging skincare routine. In fact, the sooner you start, the better are the chances for the wrinkles and fine lines to not show up soon. However, if you are already struggling with the signs of aging, it’s still not too late to start.
Together, with our experts and certified dermatologist, we have come up with a highly effective anti-ageing skincare routine for both day and night. There are some key ingredients like Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, which if you include in your routine, will give you younger-looking, healthy, fresh and radiant skin.
Let’s begin Morning Routine
Step 1: Cleanse
The first step in the morning is to cleanse to take off the accumulated oil and impurities that have gathered over the night. Identify your skin type and purchase a cleanser accordingly. Make sure it does not strip your face from essential oils, leaving it very dry. A good cleanser should be gentle and non-drying on your skin. If you have acne-prone skin, a cleanser with salicylic acid would be a good choice.
Once you have deeply cleansed, apply a toner gently to maintain the pH of your skin and tighten the pores.
Step 2: Use Anti-ageing Serums
Since wrinkles and fine lines are your biggest concern, it’s important to give your skin a special treatment with two of the most effective anti-ageing ingredients, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid.
Vitamin C is a highly known anti-oxidant and skin brightening agent. With frequent exposure to the sun, an increase in the free-radicals results in the premature ageing of skin cells, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Vitamine C serum will help restore your skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots and age spots.
One of the reasons your skin ages quickly is because it is not getting enough hydration. Hyaluronic acid will ensure your skin has the right amount of hydration to bear the stress of the long day ahead.
Step 3: Use Eye Cream
The area around the eyes is as important as your face and can quickly give away the signs of ageing if not taken care of. Use as revitalizing eye lift cream to combat wrinkles under the eye, puffiness and dark circles.
Step 4: Moisturize
Using a good moisturizer to lock in the moisture in your face is an essential step that you should never miss. There is a range of anti-ageing daily face moisturizers and you can get one according to your skin type. Apply evenly on your face and neck after your serums have dried.
Step 5: Use Sunscreen
Even if you plan to stay inside and the weather is chilly with no sign of sun outside, never skip your sunscreen. Exposure to harmful UV rays is the main culprit behind the early signs of ageing on your skin. A good sunscreen will provide you protection against it, keeping your skin healthy and young.
Step 6: Exfoliation (for nighttime)
For the nighttime routine, after you have thoroughly cleansed your skin, it is beneficial to exfoliate. You can do it on alternate days in the start before becoming more regular. Exfoliating your skin will enhance cell turnover, extract the dead cells to reveal new and fresh-looking skin. Glycolic acid, salicylic acid and lactic acid are great chemical exfoliants that gently exfoliates your skin, making it more youthful.
Similarly, the use of retinol on your skin twice a week at night will help with wrinkles and rejuvenate your skin. After these serums, finish off your nighttime routine with the night cream and moisturizer.
