Ageing is a natural process that no one escapes; wrinkles, fine lines and even age spots are coming for us all. Prevention is always better than cure, and while there’s no right time to start using anti-ageing products, if you’re yet to see many changes to your skin, these tips are a good place to start. The information is relevant to those with more mature skin, and for men too.
The most important thing to remember is that with the right skincare routine everyone, no matter their age, can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. So whether you’re new to anti-ageing products or if you’ve already got your own anti-ageing routine, our top ten tips for younger-looking skin will have some useful advice for you.
Cleanse Away Impurities with a Gentle Cleanser That Doesn’t Strip Skin
In order to ensure that the rest of your skincare routine is as effective as it should be, you need to ensure you start with clean skin. Cleansing gives skin the chance to absorb further products more efficiently. From an anti-ageing point of view it’s important to find a cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils. Why? Well, as we age, skin usually becomes drier so it’s important to use a cleanser that won’t dry the skin out further. We recommend avoiding harsh formulas, instead opting for a gentle option such as Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash. Enriched with Calendula Extract, the creamy gel formula lifts away impurities without stripping skin, leaving it feeling soothed, refreshed and instantly revitalised.
Introduce Your Skin to an Essence
If you’ve always kept your skincare routine to the bare minimum, embracing the world of anti-ageing products means taking your skincare routine to the next level, starting with using an essence. An essence is a light liquid formula that includes concentrated active ingredients and can have benefits for dry and ageing skin. They’re used after cleansing (but before applying serum) to help prep your skin for the rest of your routine. We recommend Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence, an anti-ageing formula that helps smooth skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and boost radiance. It’s formulated with Iris Florentina Extract, Lipo Hydroxy Acid (a form of Salicylic Acid), and Sodium Hyaluronate, and it’s suitable for all skin types — including sensitive skin.
Use a Vitamin C Serum in the Morning and a Retinol Serum in the Evening
Wake up with Vitamin C! Formulated with 12.5% Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid, our Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate hydrates and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The result? Smoother and more radiant looking skin.
In the evening, we recommend using a Retinol serum, such as Retinol Skin Renewing Daily Micro-Dose Serum.
Enriched with a daily-strength dose of Pure Retinol, Peptide and Ceramides, our serum visibly reduces the look of wrinkles, refines the feel of skin’s texture and firms the feel of skin. The formula promotes surface skin cell turnover while strengthening the skin barrier function to better receive optimal effects of our Retinol-enriched serum and visibly renew skin for younger-looking appearance.
New to Retinol? It can be hard to separate fact from fiction. Our award-winning serum is suitable for first-time users, helping to achieve visible results with a minimised likelihood of discomforting side effects including redness, dryness and peeling. 90% of users, including first-time Retinol users, agree skin feels comfortable and 93% agree texture feels refined.*
