Ladies, let’s talk about anti-ageing. I used to think of old or elderly women when I heard about anti-ageing treatments a few years ago because I assumed they were the people who needed them. After all, I’m still a young lady. What do I need anti-ageing products for? This is how the majority of young women feel. But when I took the time to think about it and do my research, I realized I had been wrong all along. It’s called “anti-ageing” because it’s supposed to slow or prevent the ageing of your skin. However, if you wait until your skin is already ageing before using it, it will not produce the desired results. Anti-ageing products do not reverse ageing; rather, they prevent the visible signs of skin ageing.
You should not wait until you are older to begin using “anti-ageing” products. The best time to get started is right now. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that you still have time or that you still look young. While you’re waiting, your body is reducing the production of collagen and other anti-ageing properties. These are some product recommendations for maintaining a youthful complexion:
1. Sunscreen: Sunscreen is the most effective anti-ageing product. It shields us from harmful UV rays, preventing premature ageing, sunburn, and other side effects of sun exposure. Find a formula that you like with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30!
2. Retinol serum: Retinol is a vitamin A derivative. It is one of the best ingredients for anti-ageing. It not only smoothes and prevents fine lines and wrinkles, but it also stimulates collagen and elastin production, which we lose as we age. Other retinoids include tretinoin, adapalene, and tazarotene, among others.
3. Moisturizers: Young skin is soft, supple, smooth, and hydrated. Moisturizers can help with this. They aid in the hydration and retention of moisture in the skin. Choose moisturizers that have a good balance of emollients (softening and soothing ingredients), humectants (ingredients that add moisture to the skin) and occlusives (ingredients that prevent moisture loss). For added hydration, humectants (such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and panthenol) can also be included in the form of serums and toners.
4. Antioxidant serums: Antioxidants help to protect the skin from free radicals, which can cause hyperpigmentation, lines and wrinkles, inflammation, and dullness. Antioxidant serums not only protect the skin and the body from oxidative stress but also have anti-inflammatory properties. This means that they reduce swelling and redness while also promoting a more radiant and youthful complexion by smoothing wrinkles, plumping the skin, minimizing acne scars, and repairing sun damage. Examples include Vitamin C, Resveratrol, CoQ10, Vitamin E, etc.
