Every girl wants a fresh, crease-free complexion, but with all the products out on the market, how do you know which one is best? Follow our five-step guide for smooth, healthy and vibrant skin and a wrinkle free future.
Everybody should start the day by cleansing their skin. Not only does it remove the build-up of dirt and dead skin cells after a night of sleep, but it makes other products do a better job. Start your regimen with a quick cleanse, day and night. Go for a mild product that will be gentle on your skin as over cleansing can be dangerous. Try Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser, £15.00
Serums can help to slow down the ageing process including damage from the sun. When picking a serum make sure you go for one packed with antioxidants and peptides which help to produce collagen in the skin. Try Origins, Plantscription £45.00
Keeping your skin hydrated is the key to a dewy and healthy complexion and also helps in combating breakouts. As we get older our skin slows down the production of it’s natural moisturiser sebum, so we need to give a helping hand. Regularly moisturising will help to restore your skin’s barriers and keep it feeling supple and firm – which is key in preventing wrinkles. Try Clarins Extra-Firming Day Wrinkle Lifting Cream, £46.00
The sun may give you a nice tan, but that golden glow comes at a price, with sun damage being one of the main causes of ageing. The sun causes hyperpigmentation, damage and cell breakdown, all of which contribute to wrinkles and sun spots. In the summer, foundation with an SPF isn’t enough, so make sure you are using a sun cream as well with UVA and UVB. Try Clinique, Face Cream SPF 30, £16.00
Retinol is vitamin A and is essential for our skin care as it helps to produce collagen and gives your skin an overall healthy glow. Use this as a night mask to help rejuvenate your skin overnight. Your skin will do most of it’s repair work while you sleep, so make sure that you get plenty of it, and give it a helping hand with retinol based anti-ageing products. Try Vichy, Lift Activ Retinol HA Night Cream, £29.00
