In It for the Long Haul: Anti-Aging Skincare For Your Future Face
Planning for the future is always a good idea, but it’s not just our financials, family and career that we need to account for. Thanks to the various anti-aging revolutions in the beauty world over the past few decades, we can add our skin to the list. Planning for a youthful future face doesn't need to be complicated and can actually be fun! Take a look at the anti-aging skincare you should be using now to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and spots down the road.
The skin around your eyes is the thinnest on your entire body. It needs more protection to prevent fine lines from forming as you age. Look for serums, day creams and night treatments that pamper your delicate eyes for extra preventative protection.
Our skin begins losing collagen and elasticity as early as our twenties. Ever wonder how that affects your face? To put it simply, collagen gives your skin its structural integrity and elastin keeps it firm and springy. You can give your complexion a helping hand starting now by applying anti-aging serums.
Serums are skincare treatments with smaller molecules that absorb better into your skin than say a face cream or oil. They also tend to have higher concentrations of results-driven ingredients that your skin needs to fight the aging process. You especially want to look for ones loaded with hyaluronic acid and peptides that will help improve the appearance of plumper, smoother skin.
There’s no better way to keep dark spots and wrinkles at bay than being vigilant with your SPF. When your skin is exposed to UVA and UVB rays it triggers free radicals, which damage your skin and accelerate its aging process. Try to find an everyday moisturizer with SPF 30 and remember to reapply as the day goes on.
Free radicals aren’t just generated by UV rays. Pollution is also a top offender. City dwellers especially need anti-pollution treatments with free-radical blockers to protect their skin for the future. Look for cleansers that deep clean your pores to remove the ultra-fine pollution particles and find moisturizers with added antioxidant protection to prevent environmental aggressors from acting on your skin.
