Wrinkles… we know they’re inevitable. Yet the first hints of crow’s feet and laugh lines still catch most of us off-guard. While we can’t completely stop aging in its tracks, there is no shortage of skin-preserving products that can definitely slow down the advances of time and gravity. Before you get swayed by the latest cult product that’s got every beauty influencer talking, it’s important to first understand what your skin needs and which ingredients can rejuvenate and restore its youthful glow.
Products to Add to Your Routine
Whether you approach skin care with a minimalist attitude or opt for an elaborate routine, there are certain product types that we can all agree are the mainstays in any anti-aging regimen. Read what they are below:
- Moisturizer—Dryness and dehydration often make your skin more prone to displaying early signs of aging. This makes having a reliable moisturizer in your beauty arsenal a must. Moisturizers restore the protective barrier of your skin and prevent water loss. We love Lumière de Vie Super Crème for this! Additionally, it prepares your skin and acts as a base for more targeted anti-aging treatments and ingredients such as retinoids, growth factors and antioxidants.
- Serum—Serums are concentrated bottles of high-performing actives that are able to go deeper into the skin’s layers. They offer the most lightweight formula and give the most intensive results. Anti-aging serums counter the effects of free radical damage, boost collagen and elastin production and prevent premature wrinkles and fine lines from developing. Our favorites? Lumière de Vie Needle-Free Serum and Lumière de Vie Renewal Elixir
- Eye Cream—The skin surrounding the eye area is up to five times thinner than the rest of your face. This is why it tends to be drier and show the first signs of aging. In most cases, face creams and moisturizers are not enough to nourish this delicate area. It requires gentler and more targeted ingredients to reduce the risk of irritation and address anti-aging concerns specific to the eye area. We love Lumière de Vie Eye Balm. Eye creams help to moisturize the skin under your eyes, making it plumper and reducing the appearance of fine lines.
- Sunscreen—The sun’s UV rays are bad news for your skin. Not only are they linked to a number of skin conditions, including skin cancer, they are also responsible for most of the damage that your skin endures. Sun-induced aging or photo-aging occurs when skin is continually exposed to the sun without adequate protection. This can lead to age spots, wrinkles, pigmentation and sagging or drooping skin. The best sunscreen for anti-aging? Cellular Laboratories® De-Aging Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+.
