Prevention is key! A prescribed anti-ageing skincare routine for your individual skin type is invaluable. A consistent routine helps to speed up the skin’s regeneration process, leaving your skin more hydrated, firmer, brighter, and even-toned. We’ve selected some of our best-selling anti-ageing favourites for you that celebs are also loving!
Sunscreen is a must!
A staggering 90% of skin ageing is caused by exposure to UV rays. Wrinkles form due to a breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin, which are primarily broken down by environmental damage. Invest in a broad spectrum SPF sunscreen – this will protect you from both UVA and UVB rays, and prevent further damage from occurring. Model, Lily Cole loves Dermalogica: “I have so much make-up plastered over my skin all the time, I worry what it’s going to look like when I wash it off. That’s why I only use Dermalogica products on my face -they definitely do the trick.”
Antioxidants work wonders
Antioxidants are a must-have in your skincare routine. Antioxidants have anti-inflammatory, skin repairing and firming benefits, and are also proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improve the appearance of minor scarring. Using products containing antioxidants can also reduce the effects of free radical damage. Sienna Miller has named SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum as part of her daily detailed skincare regime.
You need retinol in your life
There are various forms of Vitamin A that can be used in skincare. Retinol helps to stimulate cell regeneration and build collagen to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and uneven skin tone. Additionally, retinol helps to minimise the appearance of enlarged pores, correct blemishes and treat pigmented scarring often associated with problematic skin. Jennifer Lopez credits her great skin to using retinol from a young age.
Build your barrier
A weakened skin barrier can mean you’re more susceptible to general ageing and damage. Support and build up your skin’s natural barrier function with Copper Amino Isolate from NIOD. Targeting all aspects of skin ageing by keeping the skin in an ongoing heightened state of repair, this product addresses visible signs of ageing to treat skin from the lowest depths upward. Makeup artist and Youtube personality, Wayne Goss loves NIOD, a new international brand to arrive at Adore Beauty.
Say goodbye to pigmentation
One of the most visible forms of skin damage is pigmentation. Pigmentation occurs when the body produces too much melanin triggered by tyrosinase (an enzyme that converts tyrosine to melanin). Tyrosinase activity is stimulated by aggressors including UV exposure, skin inflammation (acne and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation), and hormonal fluctuations. Using pigment inhibiting products will assist in gradual fading. Rebecca Judd loves the Aspect skincare range.
