Many women ask our green beauty experts, “What is a good age to start using anti-aging products for our skin?” Our advice: Start ASAP!
It’s inevitable! As you age so will your skin.
A (not so) fun fact, our skin begins to age in our early 20s. Scary isn’t it? So, if you don’t start using anti-aging skincare products early, by the time you’re 40 you may look 10 years older than your actual age.
Now, we don’t mean you go full-on crazy buying hundreds of different products. Instead, take it step-by-step and start incorporating tiny changes here and there to prevent & reduce signs of premature aging.
The first step in preventing premature aging is applying daily sunscreen.
Why? Because UV rays coming from the sun, damage our skin’s firmness and allow wrinkles to develop. Sun exposure is also responsible for those “age spots” or more widely known “liver spots” you see on hands, face, and other exposed areas.
A solution: Always wear sunscreen! Choose products with SPF 20 or more. Your hands and face are the most frequently exposed areas, apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you leave your house & keep replenishing during the day.
The next step in your battle with aging is choosing products with key ingredients that help prevent aging & retain your youthful glow.
Use ultra-strength, antioxidant-rich serums that contain superfoods such as papaya, avocado & acai berry that can help your skin look smoother, firmer, and ageless.
Rose oil is another life-changing product that supports and enhances the age-defying benefits of antioxidant ingredients like acai.
One of our favourite tried, tested, and proven Ac+R Serum contains all the benefits of powerful acai and rose oil. Perfect for age-defying results.
(Did you know: this Ac+R | Youthful Glow serum is the winner for the Best Anti-Aging product at the Elle Eco-Beauty Awards!)
Another point to keep in mind is how you layer your anti-aging products. The correct layering is the key to getting the highest possible return on your skincare investment.
In the morning you should – cleanse, gently exfoliate, use toner, serum, treatment cream, and then sunscreen.
At night you should – cleanse, gently exfoliate, use toner, serum, and anti-aging face cream, anti-aging eye cream.
High-performing nighttime face creams and eye-creams are crucial.
Choose products that contain ingredients like Rose Hip oil, Aloe Vera, Lavender, and Hyaluronic acid that reduce the appearance of fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness.
Now, the next question you may ask is what if you didn’t use anti-aging products in your 20s? What if you didn’t use SPF daily? Or you never invested in anti-aging eye-creams? And the harsh signs of aging are now catching up to you.
We have a solution for that as well. Start using youth renewing creams. These creams deeply moisturize your skin, to deliver intense hydration and relax the look of expression lines and wrinkles. Look out for ingredients such as Moth Bean Seed Extract, Cocoa Bean, prebiotics, and collagen-boosting Vitamin C in products to reduce signs of aging.
