Do you want to stay young forever?
We don’t know how to turn back the clock, but we can help you fool cameras and mirrors into thinking you’re a younger version of yourself. Here are some helpful hints for creating an anti-aging skincare routine.
Use a gentle cleanser
Cleansing is essential for removing any skincare products or makeup you’ve applied throughout the day, as well as natural skin oils, pollutants, and bacteria that have accumulated.
You should use a gentle cleanser to protect your skin’s barrier and keep it resistant to dehydration and damage. Cleansers with a high pH, such as natural soaps, are extremely harsh and can expose your skin to irritation and infection.

Exfoliate with a physical or chemical exfoliant.
Your skin’s ability to replenish itself slows as you age. Because dead skin cells are not replaced as quickly as fresh cells, your skin begins to look dull and uneven, and may even crack. Exfoliants are an excellent way to remove dead skin cells from your skin.
Serums for anti-aging
Serums, on average, have a higher concentration of active ingredients than moisturisers. Vitamin A derivatives known as retinoids (retinol, tretinoin, and tazarotene) and vitamin C are the best anti-aging ingredients.
They not only increase collagen in your skin, but they also act as antioxidants, soaking up the biological and environmental oxidative stress that causes ageing.
Sebum production decreases with age. While this reduces the likelihood of acne, it also causes your skin to dry out more easily. One of the major causes of fine lines is a lack of skin hydration, which is easily remedied with a good moisturizer.
Look for a moisturiser that contains humectants that attract water, such as glycerine and hyaluronic acid. To keep water from evaporating from your skin at night, use an occlusive such as petrolatum (commercially known as Vaseline, though Aquaphor also works) and mineral oil.
Always use sunscreen
Sun protection is one of the most effective ways to keep your skin looking young. The sun is responsible for many of your skin’s visible signs of aging. UV rays from the sun can cause aging by:
- Breaking down collagen and causing elastin abnormalities
- Thinner skin and wrinkles that cause uneven-pigmented patches to develop
So use sunscreen on a daily basis, not just at the beach. According to a recent study, a daily application of a broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen can reduce age spots, improve skin texture, and flatten wrinkles by 20% in just three months.
