What type of anti-aging should you use?
Age is just a number: our #1 moisturizer for youthful skin
The ultimate anti-aging solution to keep your skin looking radiant and wrinkle-free!
Youthful skin is characterized by plumpness, a healthy glow, and a bright, even tone. However, as we age, our skin becomes increasingly vulnerable to becoming dry and dehydrated, leading to wrinkles, a loss of elasticity, and a lack of radiance. Still, maintaining a luminous, smooth complexion is possible - it just takes a little extra effort.
The dermis can lose between 20 to 80% of its thickness during the aging process. This results in a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin, thereby slowing the skin’s ability to repair itself and altering the skin’s structure, according to the International Dermal Institute says : that This reality often manifests itself into a loss of volume and elasticity, wrinkles, and pigmentation, which are best addressed through a hydrating skincare regime that replenishes the skin’s water levels, improving its healing and regeneration capabilities. According to Dr. Diane C. Madfes, dermatologist and spokesperson for the American Academy of Dermatology, people only take action once they see the first signs of aging manifest - namely, fine lines, brown marks, smile lines, and crow’s feet. Although a preventive approach is best, it’s never too late to start incorporating anti-aging products into your routine.
The best moisturizer for aging skin
The foremost rule of an anti-aging skincare regime is hydration. As we age, we experience fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of firmness - all of which are largely caused by dehydration. A study published in the British Journal of Dermatology found that for a typical 28 year old woman with dry skin, her wrinkles will have increased by 52% by the time she reaches 36, however, this number could be reduced to 22% if she had simply been proactive in ensuring her skin was well-hydrated. But regardless of whether you’re in your 20s and looking to employ a preventative approach, or if you are in your 60s and are trying to counteract dehydration and thus, minimize the signs of aging, an ultra-hydrating moisturizer is the best course of action.
The Aquasource Gel is the best moisturizer for aging skin and fostering long-lasting hydration in general. An innovative formula that provides up to 48 hours of continuous release hydration, it’s extra-charged in regenerating Life Plankton and moisturizing Mannose to keep the skin optimally hydrated hour after hour, no matter the conditions. Best of all, it has a weightless gel texture that’s as effective as richer formulas so it soothes the skin and makes it look water-plumped without leaving it feeling greasy. With consistent use, the skin looks revitalized, rejuvenated, and more youthful.
Don’t forget that a good skincare routine is essential for youthful skin
Aquasource Gel reigns supreme as our #1 moisturizer for youthful skin, however it’s important to remember that it will work best under the optimal conditions. With a good anti-aging skincare routine, you can work to both prevent and cure signs of aging. Keep reading to see our essential steps to include in any skincare routine.
Wash your face with a mild cleanser
According to dermatologist Dr. Doris J. Day, for women over 40, the skin tends to be drier so it’s best to use a gentle cleanser that will remove dirt and makeup without stripping away natural oils. The Skin Oxygen Depolluting Face Cleanser is the perfect hydrating formula for aging skin. Enriched with Chlorella Algae Extract, it traps and removes dirt and makeup without drying out the skin. In addition to removing impurities so they don’t stay on your skin and cause age acceleration and damage, it leaves the skin feeling smooth, supple, hydrated, and purified.
Use a facial essence for aging repair
As the first step in your skincare routine, a facial essence delivers intense doses of hydration deep into our skin, penetrating into the lower layers of the epidermis for the ultimate hydrating, revitalizing, priming treatment. Life Plankton Essence has highly rejuvenating and nourishing properties, working to keep skin young through moisture, to see newborn skin in as little as 8 days. Keep skin plump and smooth with this lightweight yet powerful texture, and watch skin transform in to the picture of radiance.
Include a serum to directly target aging concerns
The texture of a serum is particularly light, therefore making it increasingly penetrable to directly target fine lines, wrinkles or dark spots. Thanks to its composition of tiny molecules, it can dissolve deep in the the skins’ layers and work its magic. Blue Therapy Accelerated Serum repairs visible signs of aging almost instantly, and dramatically improves skin quality over time. Concentrated in the Algae of Youth, this powerful serum directly targets the three most visible signs of aging - wrinkles, dark spots and loss of firmness - smoothing them out to make skin look younger, more radiant and healthier.
Sunscreen: the best defense against aging
Next time you want to blame aging on your unlucky genetics, think again! While aging itself is inevitable, when it comes to the skin, it is largely in our control. According to the Journal of Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dermatology, the clinical signs of aging are largely influenced by extrinsic factors, especially sun exposure, which is responsible for 80% of the visible facial aging signs. Therefore, when it comes to anti-aging, using sun protection is the most effective way to protect your skin and keep it looking youthful - and not just when it’s particularly sunny. Dr. Angela Lamb stresses the importance of wearing sunscreen religiously as it is the best way to prevent wrinkles, brown spots, and other signs of aging. Although we’re all aware that we need to apply sun protection in the morning as a part of our daily skincare routine, it is less well known that SPF wears off in as little as 3 hours. Therefore, rain or shine, it’s necessary to top up on sun protection throughout the day. The Skin Oxygen Wonder Mist makes this easy; concentrated at SPF50 and encompassing highly anti-pollution and antioxidant properties, this fine mist showers your skin in hydration and sun protection. A study published in the Journal of Dermatologic Surgery concluded that sunscreen does not only protect your skin, but also reverses common signs of photoaging like wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. So whether you’re skin is bright and even-toned or speckled with dark spots and fine lines, sunscreen is always beneficial.
Ultimately, when it comes to preventing and combating the signs of aging, hydrating and protecting your skin is paramount. Whether you’re 25 or 85, it’s never too early or too late to start thinking about anti-aging products.
