While aging is a natural process, it’s no secret that most of us would prefer to minimize the signs of aging in our skin: wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. Luckily, we intervene with skincare to help reduce the appearance of signs of aging – it’s all about choosing the right treatment for your skin type and concerns. There are countless products labelled ‘age-defying’ and ‘anti-wrinkle’, but what’s behind these claims? Let’s explore a few key ingredients to look out for, and our top anti-aging products to incorporate into your anti-aging skincare routine.
Protecting your skin from the sun is absolutely essential in helping slow down the development of signs of aging. This is because exposure to the sun’s UV rays results in photoaging – wrinkling, loss of elasticity, and dark spots on the skin. UV radiation causes collagen (the protein needed for healthy, plump skin) to break down at a much faster rate than usual. Thus, it is important to incorporate products with sun protection into your daily skincare routine.
Try No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Day Cream SPF 30 for broad spectrum sun protection. It’s formulated with No7’s powerful anti-wrinkle peptide technology, as well as hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C for skin tone that appears more even, wrinkles appear visibly reduced, and firmer looking skin. Alternatively, try No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream SPF 30. This award-winning day cream hydrates skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just two weeks.
