There comes a time for most people where we look in the mirror and realise some changes in our skin. Maybe you can see dark spots, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, loss of fullness or changes in the texture of your skin. Rest assured, everyone’s visible signs of ageing manifest in different ways and these are all very common skin complaints with ageing skin. Luckily there are plenty of ways to care for your ageing skin every single day.

A basic every day routine focussed on anti-ageing

With any skincare routine that uses products that contain acids and other active ingredients, it is always best to consult a skin specialist first, especially if your skin tends to be on the more sensitive side. Generally speaking, there are several steps that you should follow to have your skin looking radiant as soon as possible.

Step 1 . Cleanse

Remove dirt and other pollutants from your skin with a cleanser that has an active ingredient in it like Salicylic Acid or Vitamin C, Glycolic Acid or Retinol. 

Step 2. Serum

Apply a serum with ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides, Vitamin C or Niacinamide to help work against dehydration, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and collagen production.

Step 3. Moisturiser

Moisturise with your favourite product, as the serums you have applied previously will help to maximise and lock in the hydration to keep your skin looking supple and less parched. 

Step 4. Sunscreen

If you skip this step during your morning routine, there really isn’t much point doing the other steps, as the sun is the number one factor when it comes to exacerbating visible signs of ageing. Get yourself a broad spectrum formula and use it as directed on the label.

For your night time routine, repeat this process only replacing Step 4 with your Retinol serums, hydrating oils or other overnight treatments like moisturising masks and denser hydration creams with active ingredients. 

Treatments for younger looking skin

Your daily routine is a must and needs become second nature to you before you delve into anything more invasive.
