We hold these truths to be universal among skin professionals: First, you should moisturise. Second, don’t ever forget sunscreen—not even during cold weather. Then again, your anti-ageing skin journey shouldn’t be boxed into a 2-step routine. So what should we do to slow down the signs of ageing and is it ever black and white? You’ll find out after reading this article.
Why Do I Need an Anti-ageing Skincare Routine?
A complete and easy-to-follow anti-ageing skincare is an investment, which is why we can’t just be on the lookout for every influencer-generated skin trend. While others are queuing up for the latest serum buzz, you’d want to go for richer, top quality, and advanced skin technology-formulated buys. It makes sense to follow word of mouth. And we are none the wiser if we see raving reviews on every platform possible.
However, not all skin is the same and not all skin would have the same results and reaction to a specific product and its ingredients especially without knowing what you need.
Where Should I Start?
Start as soon as you can but make sure to get a professional skin analysis. No matter how simple your regime might be, many benefits come with an expert’s advice. A skin professional will analyse your skin type and guide you through the products and practices towards healthy-looking, younger skin. Your trip to the drugstore with everything from cleansers to hydrators could mean an allergic reaction or a useless spree for products with ingredients that would cause more harm than good.
Once you get proper skin advice, you can commit to a skincare routine that would boost your anti-ageing efforts.
No, you’re not too young for this.
There’s no such thing as being “too young” when it comes to targeting early signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and dullness.
Hyaluronic Acid Serum is legit.
While using the same products can mean different things to many people addressing different skin concerns, one thing is clear by now. By far, hyaluronic acid is everyone’s holy grail, tested by time to smooth wrinkles in its moisture bender power. Get your share of a product capable of holding its weight in water by thousand times over. Use hyaluronic acid serums to fight skin ageing and more.
It’s not about the product. It’s about the need.
It’s not enough to wash your face. Choose your cleansers wisely. A great cleanser respects your skin’s natural oils and keeps it hydrated so go ahead and look for a gentle foam cleanser.
It’s always good to tone.
So you got your cleanser solved. Now it’s time to tone because it’s a necessary part of any skincare regime for people with oily, acne-prone skin.
Start the day with Vitamin C.
You can never go wrong with a Vitamin C serum wherever you go, whatever age group you belong to in or after your 20s. You see a lot of hype with Vitamin C right now and with good reason. It contains antioxidants that protect the skin from the sun and early signs of ageing.
Don’t forget to moisturise.
We already said it and we’re only too happy to keep reminding our skin advocates and stakeholders to please moisturise. So, if you have dry skin, Germaine De Capuccini’s advanced hydration cream contains three different weights of hyaluronic acid for every layer of the skin. This is perfect for intense hydration which will leave your skin glowing within a few days of use.
Be sun-protected, all day, every day, all seasons.
The warm, sunny outdoors with the seemingly year-long summer breeze. With the outdoorsy Australian lifestyle comes unhealthy sun exposure. It goes without saying that next to a sanitiser and your mobile phone, never leave the house without sunscreen. Or at least, make sure you’ve got your SPF incorporated in your skincare routine. Do it daily and not only when you remember or when it’s hot outside.
Don’t let time dull you down.
The more even your skin’s surface is, the more light it will reflect, and the more light, the brighter your glow. Therefore, it’s best to add retinol or licorice extract to help illuminate the skin and look for glycolic acids in at-home facials and other related products to get rid of dead skin cells and increase collagen levels.
Fight the shadows under your eyes.
We mean it. Dark circles in the eye area can be the most aggressive signs of ageing than fine lines and wrinkles. Consider using our Timexpert Rides Eye Duo made with BTX-Tripeptide, which has a Botox-like effect to get rid of dark circles, crows feet, and wrinkles. Then, you’ll see a better, more rejuvenated, hydrated eye area from day 1 by using this as the best anti-wrinkle cream Australia skincare can give you.
Beat premature ageing with a cheat-sheet regime
- Cleanse and tone. But also, moisturise and apply eye cream.
- Put on serum next and layer one to two of them for best results, targeting a couple or more skin concerns in one application. Then moisturise.
- Depending on the time of day, you’ll need sunscreen as the final product in the morning and you can use retinoid as the routine’s counterpart at night
