We all know that fifty is the new thirty. It’s a time in your life when you’re settled, your kids have likely grown up, or you’re in a financially stable position where you can enjoy the finer things in life. Because let’s face it, our thirties weren’t as straightforward as we might have thought at the time. Chances are they were filled with break-ups, messy life decisions, financial strain, pressure to stay out and drink, and still having to worry about maintaining a great figure. Fast forward a couple of decades and the majority of this societal pressure is eliminated, we’ve learned to just not care what other people think and we are in a much better position than we were back then. So all we need now is for our skin to catch up on the memo. Here we take a look at some anti-aging techniques to turn the clock back on your complexion for a youthful glow.
Wash with a gentle cleanser
Cleansing is an important part of any skincare routine as it can remove any dirt, grime, and makeup residue from your skin. Proper cleansing also enables your other products such as toners and moisturizers to be properly absorbed and work their magic. The skin loses its elasticity and tenacity as you get older which is why you will want to use a gentle cleanser that protects the skin from irritation, infection, and inflammation. Opt for cleansers that are designed for sensitive skin and advertise a low pH as they will be much gentler.
Focus on your under-eye areas
When it comes to reclaiming your youth, the eyes can be the biggest tell-tale sign, yet luckily they are easy enough to remedy. Due to the delicacy of the skin around the eyes, they are much more prone to wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles than other areas of the face. To turn back the clock, use products designed specifically for your under-eye areas such as an eye mask or age repair eye serum. We also have a Wrinkle Away Eye Lifting System set we can recommend that is specifically designed to revive and brighten aged eyes.
The majority of eye treatments can be used every day and are recommended to be applied in the morning and evening for maximum impact. When applying products to the under-eye area ensure you always do so with care - pulling, stretching, and harshly rubbing the skin around the eyes can exacerbate lines and wrinkles.
Choose an anti-aging serum
Serums should be a must in your skincare routine and are a pivotal player when it comes to turning back the time and reducing lines and wrinkles. Our 101 Volumizing Anti-Aging Face Serum, light, highly-concentrated liquids, are packed with nutrients and vitamins and designed to penetrate deeply into your skin. Getting into places your moisturizers and cleansers can’t, they can deliver essential nutrients deep into the skin, providing a more efficient outcome. For the best results, gently apply a serum to your under-eye area on clean skin, morning and night. This can be followed by a moisturizer on top for additional hydration.101 Volumizing Anti-Aging Face Serum
Don’t miss your neck
While the skin on your face is important, you don’t want to forget your neck area either! The skin on your neck is also very fragile and thin, making it susceptible to succumbing to age sooner than other areas on your body. When you're on the lookout for a smoother and less wrinkled neck, one of the best products on the market is a neck mask. This is easy to apply and is designed to be a non-invasive way of lifting your neck and improving its appearance. Our Neck Care Microcurrent Dual Mask is a particular favorite and is clinically proven to firm and lift the delicate skin of the neck, hydrating and boosting your natural collagen production along the way. For best results, use twice a week for two weeks, then reduce this to once a week going forward.Neck Care Microcurrent Dual Mask
Regularly use a face mask
Face masks are another form of skincare that you don’t want to skip in your skincare routine. Our Saint 21 Microcurrent Dual Facial Mask concentrated than your regular moisturizer and can replenish your skin's hydration as well as boost it with vital nutrients, adenosine and stimulating collagen production. There are a host of anti-aging dedicated face masks on the market that you can utilize, from simple hydrating masks to more focused Microcurrent masks that often have greater results. Be sure to use these regularly as while a one-off face mask can improve your skin for a short time, regular use ensures the benefits can really be seen.
While we might not be able to turn the clock on many aspects of our lives (and let’s face it, we also probably don’t want to) your skincare is an exception.
