PREVENTION is the first step in avoiding premature aging.
Do’s: Drink more water, eat a well balanced diet, exercise, and wear sunscreen everyday (even in the winter!) and keep your skin hydrated.
Don’ts: Over expose your skin to sun, smoke, or drink excessively.
So, how should women approach anti-aging in their...
The most common mistake we make in our 20’s is not focusing on prevention. It is never to early to begin an anti aging routine. Daily sunscreen is a must and hydrating the skin is essential (even if you have oily skin). As we age, we naturally lose moisture in our skin so it is important we consistently replenish. Most people can benefit from using a hyaluronic acid everyday. Think of it as a drink of water for your face. It comes in serum form and a moisturizer can be used over it to work as a barrier.
Hydration is the most essential way to keep our skin healthy feeling and healthy looking. Hydration is the main focus for this product from Lucrece. Fortified with Hyaluronic (33%) and Panthenol (Vitamin B5), the Hydration Serum w/ Peptides provides an especially deep and complete hydration. With the addition of peptides, it also assists in tightening and firming the skin while allowing for maximum absorption and effectiveness.
Directions: The product should be applied directly after cleansing the skin, as the 2nd step in skin care regimens for all skin types (morning & night).
This is often the age in which you can expect to see the early signs of aging and you will begin thinking about treating the skin and not just prevention. Common concerns are losing elasticity in the skin, uneven skin tone often caused by hormones or over exposure to sun. One key ingredient to look for in products is Vitamin C which is great for brightening the skin. Vitamin A is also a key ingredient that should be used in the evening. It is a retinol and is great for smoothing the skin and making it look more youthful and radiant.
Sanitas Vita C Serum
Vita C Serum delivers an extremely high does of lipophilic Vitamin C to help restore the skin's youthful tone and elasticity.
As our skin matures, we want to reverse the signs of aging. Incorporating Alpha Hydroxy acid creams into your skincare regime is beneficial along with professional treatments. Some other really results driven ingredients to look for in your skincare products to reverse the signs of aging are peptides and plant stem cells. You may not see immediate results but this team of ingredients will provide results over time, that last.
