Which skincare products are best as we age? There are so many skincare products today that it can become confusing trying to figure out which ones would be most beneficial to our skin. While there are many helpful things you can do for your skin, there are 3 key products that are very beneficial to the aging process.
- Sunscreen with SPF 30+ every single day, whether rain or shine. This is the number one anti-aging product everyone needs to use and will benefit from. In every season, sunscreen helps prevent sunburn, early skin aging, and skin cancer by protecting you from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.
- Using a product that contains Retinol nightly. Everyone benefits from Retinol, as it helps with sundamage, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, and even acne. Our body’s collagen production begins decreasing around age 25, so a retinol can provide many benefits even in your 20’s and 30’s.
- An antioxidant that you use in the morning under your sunscreen. Benefits to your skin from antioxidants include skin brightening and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
While we cannot undo sundamage, these are three products that can easily be incorporated into your skincare regimen that will have a positive impact on how your skin ages.
