Top 5 anti-ageing products
We all strive for younger, healthier skin and the older we get; the more we yearn to achieve this. And so begins our long haul in trialling hundreds of products, and unfortunately not all anti-ageing skincare products give us the results we want. This is because most of them show results that eventually fade and are just temporary ‘on the surface’ miracle workers.
Skin ageing can start as early as your 20s so by the time you are 40, you will be able to noticeably see a difference in your skin. Some of the common common signs of ageing in skin is uneven skin tone, dull complexion, roughness and age spots.
Younger and healthier skin is a reflection of a healthy mind and a healthy body. What you put in your body, including what you eat, your workout lifestyle and environmental factors influences your physical appearance and overall ‘glow’. Finding the right anti-ageing skincare products along with all of those external factors can be challenging. So how do we go about it? What are the best products to achieve that miracle younger and healthier skin? Is it easily attainable to achieve?
To find out more here are the 5 best anti-ageing tips and products to obtain youthful looking skin:
Your skin is the body’s largest organ and accounts for about 16% of a person’s total body weight. So understandably, it is important to look after and retain the health and appearance of your skin. As you age, your skin begins to experience a gradual decline in hyaluronic acid levels.
If you’re unsure of what hyaluronic acid is, it is a natural substance found in the skin to keep it hydrated and stable and encourages skin cell renewal. As your skin ages, it becomes drier and its ability to retain water reduces, causing an increase in firmness and fine lines. What hyaluronic acid does is it will rehydrate your skin for a firmer appearance and in effect, minimize the appearance of fine lines. Not only does it nourish and re-freshen your skin, it also contains antioxidant properties that protect your skin from environmental factors including pollution, sun exposure and harsh chemicals.
That is why; one of the more important tips on how to have younger and healthier skin is to stay hydrated. SkinCeuticals is an advanced professional skincare line that incorporates science to achieve optimal skin results. One of their popular anti-ageing products is the H.A. Intensifier, a multi-beneficial corrective serum to help amplify skin’s hyaluronic acid levels. Containing a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, proxylane and botanical extracts of licorice root and purple rice, their unique ingredients visibly delivers surface hydration to improve your skin’s overall texture. This includes reducing the look of crow’s feet, nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
It is suitable for all skin types including normal, oily, combination, dry and sensitive skin.
Focus on your eye area
The skin around your eyes is delicate and thin, and with age this area becomes even more important to retain in order to discourage the appearance of skin ageing. Typical facial expressions, UV and free radical damage all contribute to the weakening and sensitivity of the skin around your eyes. It’s important to focus and preserve this area of your face so that it can stay younger and healthier for longer. A lot of people often tend to forget about the under eye area or even worse, use harsh creams and serums that does more harm than good. Incorporating an eye cream in your skincare routine can help improve the overall look of this area.
To refresh your under eye appearance and reduce overall sagginess, including fine lines and crow’s feet, try Obagi ELASTIderm Eye Products. Obagi Medial is a global pharmaceutical company founded by leading skin care experts in 1988, to help minimize the appearance of premature skin ageing, as well as skin damage, hyperpigmentation, acne and sun damage. Their eye products have been formulated with clinically proven ingredients, so you can rest assured that you will visibly notice a difference.
ELASTIderm Eye Cream includes proprietary bi-mineral complex and malonic acid for tighter, smoother skin around the eyes, giving you that refreshed and youthful appearance.
The ELASTIderm eye complex serum is an extra pick-me-up that uses a rollerball technology and includes a boost of caffeine to brighten the appearance of your eyes. This miracle worker also includes the same formulation as the ELASTIderm Eye Cream to retain elasticity in your under eye area.
Incorporate sun protection into your routine
Excessive sun exposure, (especially our Australian sun) not only burns and causes tanning, but also penetrates deeper into your skin, causing long term effects such as wrinkles and sun spots. In fact, nothing ages your skin faster than sun exposure. So whilst, it’s still important to get that dose of Vitamin D, ensure that you protect your skin as much as possible to retain your youthful skin.
UVA and UVB rays are the main skin-damaging components from the harsh sun. UVA is what causes long term changes to your skin that quickens the look of skin ageing. UVB rays are from the suns intensity, and because our atmosphere doesn’t do a very fine job of filtering out UVA rays, inadequate protection causes redness and burning of the skin.
Introducing, ASAP Skin Products, Australia’s number one cosmeceutical skincare range that is scientifically formulated for working on sun damaged and ageing skin by drawing on active ingredients including AHA’s and vitamins A and C.
One of the more effective ways to protect your skin from prematurely ageing as well as the suns harmful UVA and UVB rays and reduce anti-ageing effects is to incorporate a daily moisturising sunscreen. Their moisturising daily defence SPF 50+ sunscreen contains zinc oxide for broad-spectrum protection and Niacinamide to prevent pigmentation and promote elasticity.
Target uneven skin tone
It has actually been proven that pigmented and uneven skin tone looks more aged than skin with fine lines and wrinkles! Hyperpigmentation is a result of excessive Melanin by the melanocytes, a pigment producing cells. This can be caused by sun exposure, hormones in our body and the most common, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This includes inflammation such as acne, eczema and allergic reactions and trauma to the skin such as laser, chemical peels and surgery.
One of the biggest ways to prevent skin ageing is by using a brightening serum to get that glowing and hydrated finish that is present in youthful skin. Aspect Dr. is a new direction in active, clinical grade skincare that uses ingredients with proven anti-ageing qualities that’s also gentle for the skin.
If you’re looking for a brightening serum that’s also suitable for sensitive skin, a must try is their Active C Serum Dr. 30ml, an oil soluble Vitamin C serum to help you achieve younger and healthier skin. Mixed with powerful antioxidants and soothing botanicals, it reduces redness and assists in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles whilst giving you a bright finish.
Use foundation that covers but also nourishes your skin
A common foundation mistake for ageing skin is wearing the wrong type of coverage. It seems only natural that we should apply foundation changes as our skin changes. When choosing the right foundation for you, look for products with moisturising properties that give a diffused blur to pores and soften the appearance of fine lines and creases.
