There are many different ways that age and time take their toll on our skin. Some of these are inevitable and unable to be stopped. There are many signs of aging that are preventable and can be slowed by changes in your habits and lifestyle. Let’s explore the best age to start using Anti-Aging Products.
Here Are Some Initial And Important Changes You Can Make In Your Life To Slow The Signs Of Aging
A. Sun Protection
Staying out of the sun, covering your face and body with clothes, and applying a broad-spectrum, water-resistant SPF of 30 or higher each day before going outside (even if it’s cloudy or cold) can decrease the damage the sun’s rays do to the skin. It also means using a self-tanner instead of going outside to tan or using a tanning bed because of those options’ harmful and sometimes cancerous results.
B. Stop Smoking
In addition to being harmful to your lungs and mouth, smoking cigarettes can speed up the aging of the skin and contribute to increased wrinkles and a sallow, dull complexion.
C. Eat A Healthy And Balanced Diet
Eating a healthy diet can prevent premature aging. Unhealthy foods can contribute to accelerated aging. Drinking alcohol can also contribute to dehydration of the skin and an older-looking appearance.
D. Exercise Multiple Times A Week
Moderate exercise can improve circulation and make your skin appear youthful.
E. Be Conscientious About Skincare
Even products that aren’t specifically targeted toward anti-aging can be helpful with protecting your skin. In addition to an SPF of at least 30, it’s essential to cleanse your skin twice a day as well as after you sweat heavily. When cleansing, be gentle and don’t use harsh or stinging skincare products on your face because they can irritate the skin, which can make it look older.
How Anti-aging Products Are Helpful To Reduce Signs Of Aging
Although skincare products generally help slow the skin’s aging process, anti-aging products designed specifically for this purpose can be even more effective when combined with other skincare products.
If you feel overwhelmed by all of the product recommendations and choices, consulting a dermatologist specializing in beauty treatments in Stevenage can help you determine what works best for your skin.
Many people have concerns about anti-aging products, however, and some of these concerns are addressed below.
1. Starting Age
Dermatologists have stated that you’re never too young to begin incorporating anti-aging products into your skincare routine because it is never too early to prevent signs of aging. However, they stress that it’s essential to find products that work for your skin type.
Some people worry if they start using anti-aging products, their skin will become reliant and dependent on the products they use. The skincare community doesn’t fully believe this. Still, they agree that there’s a phenomenon called tachyphylaxis, wherein the skin can adjust to a particular product, and the product can lose its effectiveness. It is best to switch up your products if you feel they’re not working for your skin as much as they could or should be.
Many people worry about the drying nature of certain harsher anti-aging products. Still, if a product gives you dryness, breakouts, or other discomforts, your skin is likely reacting negatively, and you shouldn’t continue to use it.
Anti-aging products help reduce signs of aging from any age. Below is more information on which anti-aging skincare products to use throughout your life.
Product To Be Used For Anti-aging At Different Age
In your 20’s
Most people agree you don’t need targeted anti-aging products yet, but it’s best to apply sunscreen regularly and moisturize to keep your skin healthy.
In your 30’s
When you reach your thirties, it might be time to get retinol, a pure vitamin A concentrate that can help with acne and aging. Some retinoids are available over the counter; a dermatologist can prescribe more potent products. If you’re not already using them, you might want to start using hyaluronic acid to moisturize, glycolic acid to exfoliate, and Vitamin C to brighten.
In your 40’s
In your forties, you may start to see signs of declining elasticity in the skin. You can combat this with a more emollient moisturizer on the skin and products with more antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients. It might also be worthwhile to look at your lifestyle and consider healthier choices you could make.
In your 50’s
As you age, your sebaceous glands (which produce oils) become less productive, leading to less acne and dryer skin. Consider a richer moisturizer and switch to a milder and creamier cleanser to relieve dryness if this is happening to you.
In your 60’s
At this point, fine lines become more prominent, and an entire skincare routine is more necessary to nourish and replenish your skin. A dermatologist can customize your approach to skincare and recommend products or services that can improve your complexion.
