As your skin matures, it becomes more sensitive. Skin develops memory, so it is likely to wrinkle in areas where it is frequently pulled or pinched. What’s more, skin becomes prone to weather damage, which could cause long-term issues.
Prevent these from happening by having a skincare routine and using an anti-aging cream. Generally speaking, there are only three steps to applying all types of skincare products: warm, dab, and massage. Here are more tips to help you establish a routine for keeping your youthful glow.
Know how much and where to use products
You can maximize a skincare item’s effectiveness if you know how your body reacts to it. For example, warm products absorb quickly, while cold ones take some time to seep in. Knowing this is vital for anti-aging potions since they degrade from air and light exposure.
Distribute the cream to the treatment area. Use gentle dabbing or patting motions to help the surface absorb the product. Focus on thin skin like what you find around the eyes, on the forehead, the space between eyebrows, and the area around the mouth prone to smile lines.
Layer your serums, waters, and creams properly
Get the most from your treatment by using your products in the right order. People just getting into skincare get surprised to discover that there is a correct way of using the various products in a regimen. Layer the items from lightest to heaviest in consistency.
Heavy products typically contain emollient ingredients. These essentially form a second skin, which helps in rehydration. While these ingredients help lock in moisture, they also block everything else.
Hence, using an anti-aging cream after an emollient will prevent you from reaping the benefits. Use waters like acid peels and toners first. Follow these up with serums, lotions, creams, and facial oils, in that order.
Apply these products at the right time
The active ingredients in your skincare products will determine the best time to apply them. It’s best to use certain creams in the evening since they can make your skin sensitive to sunlight. Examples of these include anything with a large amount of retinol, retinyl palmitate, glycolic acid, serums with AHA or BHA, and acid-based exfoliating products. Meanwhile, you can use products with Vitamin C or Vitamin B3 at any time of the day.
Generally speaking, anti-aging creams and similar products are best for nighttime routines, even if they don’t have light-sensitive active ingredients. Intensive treatments can affect the consistency and finish of most makeup types, which might be a consideration for some people. Also, the body devotes more energy towards regenerative tasks at night, optimizing the effects of these creams and potions.
One anti-aging nutrient you can apply in the morning is Vitamin C. It enhances sun protection in foundation and sunscreens and typically comes in a light serum form. Since it’s thin enough, it won’t interfere with your makeup.
Skincare goes beyond washing your face two to three times a day. Using items with hydrating and nourishing ingredients like creams and serums will help you retain your skin’s vitality. Make sure you follow the right sequence when using these products and consult your dermatologist before trying a new one. Soon enough, you’ll see results!
