When Should I Start Using Anti-Ageing Products?
When should I start using anti-aging products?
Let’s talk about aging. It happens to us all, as we grow, as we move through life, our skin is the one constant that’s ever evolving with us. To help support our skin in the best way as it changes, we need to understand how the aging process works and how it affects our skin at different stages because ultimately better knowledge = better decisions.
Understanding the Aging Process
Beginning in your mid-twenties, you start to see the first signs of aging and as you reach your thirties and forties, collagen production, skin cell turnover and natural Hyaluronic Acid in the body starts to significantly decrease. This combined with external factors such as sun damage, pollution, diet, and stress can manifest itself in visible signs on your skin such as fine lines and wrinkles, sagging and loss of skin elasticity. The key here is being proactive with your approach to skincare, always use SPF (whatever the weather) and start to incorporate hydrating and anti-aging products.
Fine Lines: Dehydration vs. Aging
Fine lines may appear because of dehydration, presenting a temporary concern that can be improved by upping your hydration levels with products like Hyaluronic Acid Serum. However, this is different from fine lines caused by aging. Aging lines tend to be deeper and more permanent which need to be approached beyond hydration. To address the underlying causes, it's essential to incorporate products formulated to visibly improve signs of aging.
When to Start Using Bio-Active Ceramide Repairing and Plumping Moisturiser
Maybe you’re late 20s and starting to notice the first signs of aging, or perhaps you’re mid-30s and your skin is feeling a little slacker and there’s a few fine lines where you didn’t used to have them. When you start to notice these signs of change is the ideal time to switch up your skincare.
A familiar skincare ingredient, Ceramides are known for their ability to form the key building blocks of a healthy skin barrier, but traditionally Ceramides are longer chain molecules which work on the outermost layers of the skin.
Next-generation Bio-Active Ceramides take the traditional Ceramide to the next level. Going beyond barrier repair to help reset, strengthen, and protect the skin, it provides dual action targeting for both the outer and deeper layers of the skin’s surface. Delivering multi-level support for aging skin it helps accelerate visible skin renewal to improve early signs of aging including fine lines & wrinkles, loss of firmness and dehydration.
