Best Anti-Aging Skincare Routine

Do you want to stay young forever? Unfortunately, that isn’t possible, but there are ways you can fool everyone around you into thinking you are much younger than you are. Here are some of the best tips for a classic anti-aging skincare routine:

First, wash your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser. It is especially important to wash your face at night to get rid of makeup, dirt, and oil from the day. It also helps your anti-aging skin care products work more effectively as you sleep. Look for cleansers that are specific to your skin type, such as oily, dry or combination skin. Avoid cleansers with sodium lauryl sulfate because it can be too harsh for aging skin.1

Next, use an exfoliant at least a few times a week. As you age, dead skin cells aren’t replaced by fresh cells as quickly. This can lead to dull and uneven skin more easily. Exfoliants can help get rid of dead skin cells much faster. Avoid any harsh exfoliants for your face, such as sugar scrubs or scrubs with beads. They can make your skin sag. Look for a gentle physical exfoliant or try a chemical exfoliant. Chemical exfoliants are great for aging skin because they dissolve the bonds between skin cells and allow them to detach gradually. Look for chemical exfoliants with alpha-hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid or lactic acid. Not only will they exfoliate your skin properly, but they can help hydrate your skin and fade uneven skin tones.1

Serums are also crucial to an anti-aging skincare routine. Remember that you should pat, don’t rub on your anti-aging serums. Look for serums with anti-aging ingredients like retinoids (derived from vitamin A) such as retinol, tretinoin, and tazarotene. You can also look for vitamin C ingredients like L-ascorbic acid and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate.1

Next, make sure to moisturize. Aging skin often dries out much faster than younger skin. Look for a moisturizer that contains glycerine or hyaluronic acid. If your skin is very dry, you can try Vaseline in your extra dry spots.1

Never forget your sunscreen as damage from the sun can make your skin age faster! The sun’s UV rays can cause aging by breaking down collagen which can lead to thinner skin and wrinkles or cause uneven pigmented patches to show up on your skin. Use sunscreen daily, even if you aren’t going to be outside for very long. Aim to use an SPF 30 or higher. You can also wear skin protective clothing, hats and sunglasses in addition to sunscreen. Never use a tanning bed as it damages your skin.1

Lastly, remember to take care of your body to take care of your skin. Eat a healthy diet, stay hydrated, get enough sleep and quit smoking. Some great foods for your skin are olive oil, salmon, walnuts, and almonds.2
