Your Anti-Ageing

Skincare Regime

While the holiday season where the principle of ‘the more, the merrier’ may say otherwise, your skin would beg to differ, especially when it begins to show the first signs of ageing. A dizzying range of products can have you all confused and overwhelmed if you’re planning on mapping out an anti-ageing skincare regime (or even expanding on your current one). The best way to approach your anti-ageing skincare regime is to integrate vital changes to your basic 5 step routine.

Step 1: Cleansing

Lay your foundation right for the skincare above to do its job

This first and most important step needs to also be gentle and hydrating to protect your skin’s acid balance and moisture levels. Dry skin often emphasizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so opt for cleansers with hydrating ingredients like Hyaluronic acid to avoid stripping your skin of natural oils.

Step 2: Toning

Balance your skin's p.H.

Toning helps in re-balancing your skin’s pH level which is why it’s a must to use a mild toner to remove any cleanser residue or impurities. In an anti-ageing regime, be mindful of avoiding harsh alcohol-based toners which spell dryness and irritation.

Step 3: Exfoliation

Accelerate your skin's cell regeration

As the skin begins to age, our cells do not turn over and get replenished as fast as they did earlier paving the way for dull, dehydrated and tired-looking skin. Investing in an acid-based exfoliant promotes collagen synthesis for fresh and healthy skin. Glycolic and lactic acid are popular AHAs that break down the bonds between skin cells, clearing away dead cells and promoting regeneration of fresh cells.

Step 4 & 5: Moisturizing

Keep your skin plump and fine-line free

As the skin matures and is subject to constant environmental and lifestyle damage, it depletes its own source of vitamins and antioxidants. A good anti-aging serum should include plenty of active ingredients like retinol and antioxidants like Vitamin C & E which refurbish the skin’s collagen production. Retinol works hard to prevent new wrinkles from forming, as well as smoothens out any fine lines that you may already have. Follow it up with a nourishing moisturizer loaded with Hyaluronic acid or ceramides for additional hydration and remedying any damage caused by strong acids or retinol.

Step 6: Sun Protection

Preserve your skin's age

Probably the only aging factor within your control, sunlight takes the crown for contributing the maximum to ageing and skin damage. It is a no-brainer that this is the most vital aspect of an anti-ageing skincare routine. Applying (and reapplying!) your trusty SPF goes a long way in preventing visible signs of age, and your skin will definitely thank you for it!

Additional Anti-Ageing Tips

  • Applying a drop of facial oil before applying the moisturizer helps rebuild elasticity and firmness of supremely dry skin.
.
  • Oily skin beauties would benefit a lot by switching to products containing salicylic acid, a chemical exfoliant that unclogs pores and exfoliates the skin.
.
  • If you have sensitive skin, it is advisable to introduce potent serums with retinol and AHAs gradually, for instance, only once a week in the beginning.
.
  • The weekly activity you simply can’t miss, masking is a great way to hydrate and strengthen the skin barrier and reverse the signs of skin ageing.
.
  • Invest in eye-creams to brighten and hydrate the under-eye area and help make wrinkles less noticeable as the skin around the eyes is forty per cent thinner than anywhere else on your face.
.

It’s never too late or early to target premature signs of ageing. Being proactive and intervening the minute you spot signs of damage, along with maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the key to healthy, glowing skin no matter your age.
