Whether you have dry skin, sensitive skin or oily skin, there is an anti-aging skin care routine that is right for you. Prevention is your golden ticket to having radiant skin no matter your skin type, so setting up a routine will benefit you down the line. Here are a few tips on how to adopt an anti-aging skin care routine good for you starting today:
What to apply for every skin type:
This day it’s no secret that the number one product for a happy and healthy-looking skin, no matter your skin type, is sunscreen. Protect your skin from the sun as much as possible and always make sure to wear a medium to high SPF. POND’S® Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer with SPF is formulated with broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen, which can help protect skin from aging UV rays. This face lotion has a moisturizing, lightweight formula that quickly absorbs into the skin making it a great daily moisturizer. Two birds with one SPF.
What to avoid and do for every skin type:
An unhealthy diet, excess alcohol consumption, smoking, and stress can all be factors of premature aging, so basically your lifestyle choices affect the appearance of your skin. First, get acquainted with a gentle cleanser. Cleansing removes potentially damaging impurities from your complexion but be sure to find just the right one for you. Effective anti-aging cleansing should incorporate only gentle products that protect your skin's acid balance and moisture levels Second, keep your skin hydrated, protected from the sun, and introduce anti-aging skin care, like POND'S® Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 2 weeks. This moisturizing and anti-aging cream –which is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, and won't clog pores– is also formulated with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and collagen. AHAs is an ingredient known to gently remove dull surface skin cells and smooth fine lines, while collagen is a fiber known to support skin firmness and elasticity. Never go to sleep without your Rejuveness, so keep it right next to your bed.
Now that you got the basics, let’s get a bit more personal with these specifics for your skin type:
You need to find products that deliver full hydration, be mindful of your environment for any harming factors –like cold weather and UV rays– and keep in mind that hydration comes from the inside out, so stay hydrated. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and pack and extra fruit or veggie to go when you need a good-for-you snack. Many fruits and veggies are made up almost entirely of water, so this will also help you to keep up with your hydration goal. Having dry skin may seem like a handful, but it’s just a matter of getting a hang of it. Learn what works best and keep it consistent.
You may need to focus on preventing breakouts and minimize unwanted shine with products that clarify and mattify. However, don’t make the mistake of thinking your skin doesn’t need moisture if it’s oily; Oil and water are not the same. Oily skin can actually be caused by dehydration. So, even if you have oily skin, you need to moisturize your skin, so the appearance of aging and fine lines is not enhanced by dryness.
- If you have sensitive skin:
Go for gentle formulas, effective active ingredients, and most importantly; ‘Listen’ to your skin. If you notice that a certain product doesn’t feel quite right on your skin i.e. stings or burns, you might want to pay attention to those red flags. You can always ask your dermatologist for a second opinion but remember that even if a skincare product was a miracle worker for your best friend, it doesn’t mean it will be the same for you. Everybody’s skin is different so it’s all about your personal skincare journey.
A good anti-aging skin care routine consists of great products that work well for your skin type, but most importantly, consistency, so be patient and keep it up.
And there you go, these anti-aging tips can help you achieve that fresh radiant glow you were looking for no matter your skin type. Clear some shelf space for these POND'S® anti aging skin care holy grails starting today.
