Anti-Aging Skincare Routines for All Ages
We all want to grow old gracefully, with a radiant complexion unmarred by wrinkles, dark spots, and loss of skin elasticity that can be common with mature skin. The secret to a lifelong glow is this: take care of your complexion with high-performance products—made from potent active ingredients—that encourage optimal skin health.
The best skincare routine for anti-aging addresses the typical concerns of mature skin while also nourishing the all-important moisture barrier on the skin’s surface. A strong and healthy moisture barrier is important because it locks in hydration (so skin looks plumper and firmer) and locks out irritants and pollutants (so skin is better protected from environmental damage). You reap the benefits at any age when you give your skin the hydration, vitamins, and nutrients it needs with luxury anti-aging skincare.
When Should You Start Your Anti-Aging Routine?
It’s never too early to start a skincare routine for anti-aging. Conditioning your skin with powerfully innovative products in your 20s and 30s gives you a head start in combating the appearance of lines, uneven texture, hyperpigmentation, dullness, and sagginess later on in life.
The one product you should use, no matter your age, is a high-quality, broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of 30 SPF. Sun exposure is the main culprit responsible for the changes in aging skin, so you should apply sunscreen every day to your face, as well as your neck, chest, hands, and other areas of your skin regularly exposed to UV rays.
Next, you’ll want to develop a skincare routine for aging skin that complements your sunscreen use and fortifies and strengthens the skin barrier. A deep cleanser and gentle exfoliant are essential for clearing away not just daily grime and buildup, but also dead skin cells. As we get older, skin cell turnover slows down and makes the skin appear dull and rough. Once skin is cleansed, hydration helps your complexion look plumper, smoother, and more youthful. Options for moisturizing include creams, oils, and serums.
Adding Products to Your Routine
The best skincare routine for aging skin is adaptable; you can customize it to your age, your skin type, or even the season. For instance, you may choose to add a product with retinoids as you enter your late 30s or 40s to support cell turnover and diminish the appearance of wrinkles. You may opt for a lightweight moisturizer if your skin tends to be oily or use a thicker cream if you live in a cold climate that can dry out your complexion.
Start with your cleanser. The Cream Cleansing Gel works with all ages and skin types because it gently and thoroughly cleans skin without stripping the moisture barrier. You can also see a visible improvement in your complexion’s tone and texture for a fresh, revitalized appearance.
You may not be concerned about daily exfoliation for dead skin cell build-up if you're young. But as you get older, you may want to start incorporating it into your daily routine to maintain a healthy-looking glow. The Essence contains salicylic and phytic acids to gently and effectively exfoliate for everyday use while ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid moisturizers. Your complexion looks purified and balanced, with a reduction in redness and the appearance of oversized pores.
You may go right to your moisturizer if you’re in your 20s, but as you age, you’ll want to take advantage of serums. These lightweight formulations target specific skin issues and should be applied to a clean face before a moisturizer. The Serum is a valuable component in any skincare routine for anti-aging. It addresses the major issues of mature skin—lines, discoloration, sagginess, and loss of elasticity—with known anti-aging superstars like vitamin C, squalane, and resveratrol, as well as botanicals such as pomegranate seed concentrate and edelweiss extract.
Skin that needs extra nurturing will soak up The Face Oil. It’s rich in antioxidants that mature skin loves, and the oils are quickly absorbed into the moisture barrier, leaving your complexion plump and lifted. To use The Face Oil, mix a few drops into your moisturizer, or dab a little on after applying your day or night cream.
Choosing a Night Cream and Eye Cream: What to Consider
And speaking of cream, a skincare routine for anti-aging needs a high-powered moisturizer for long-term skin conditioning and support. Look for:
- Retinoids to encourage cell turnover and minimize lines and wrinkles
- Antioxidants that brighten the skin for enhanced radiance
- Hydration to strengthen the moisture barrier
- A clean formulation free of irritants such as fragrance and dyes
The Cream has the retinoid vitamin A (retinyl palmitate), the antioxidant power of vitamin C, and softening Vitamin B (panthenol) to add a supple, youthful-looking vitality to your complexion. Pair it with The Eye Cream for an ultra-moisturizing skincare routine for aging skin.
The skin around your eyes is naturally thinner and more delicate than elsewhere on your face, and it can more readily show signs of aging, such as lines, dark circles, and bagginess. The Eye Cream gently glides over your skin thanks to the lightweight, botanical-rich formulation. Its moisturizing power improves the overall appearance of your eye area, so it looks firmer, brighter, and lifted.
