When you are working on preventing or even treating the beginning signs of aging, the skin care products you use and the way that you take care of your skin is just as important as getting regular anti-aging skin care treatments. Using high-quality products with a higher percentage of key active ingredients that are designed to penetrate into the skin barrier is key.
Your skin care regimen doesn’t have to be complicated in fact it’s pretty simple. Making sure you have and consistently use these 5 essential skin-care products is a surefire way to address, and prevent any of your aging concerns.
Good Skin Exfoliator
Exfoliation is a much-needed process in any and every skincare routine. Having weekly exfoliation session at home will increase cellular turnover which promotes smooth healthy skin that is bright, clear and helps to flush out pore-clogging dirt and debris that can lead to breakouts and cause the skin to look dull. Exfoliation is also wonderful at assisting in better penetration of active ingredients from other skin care products such as serums and masques.
Preventative & Corrective Masques
Masques are terrific products when used weekly. They work to infuse anti-aging ingredients into the skin barrier to nourish, hydrate and prevent key aging signs.
Targeted Treatment Serum
When you are looking to treat and address specific anti-aging issues your best bet is to invest in a quality serum. Serums are full of active ingredients that have a small molecular structure to ensure the key ingredients are able to penetrate the skin barrier.
One of the most important skin care products that you can include within your skin care regimen. Often this is the most overlooked product. Daily use of SPF will help prevent overexposure to the sun’s rays. Sun damage accounts for a majority of aging-related issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, loose sagging skin, sun spots and skin texture issues. Not to mention the fact that regular SPF application and avoiding tanning beds can help decrease your risk of developing skin cancer.
Dark circles, puffiness and those fine crepey lines that form around the delicate eye area are frustrating to deal with especially when applying makeup. This is when a good eye product can come in handy. An eye cream or eye serum can address many of the issues listed above and improve the hydration and appearance of the undereye area.
