We can't fight the signs of time indefinitely, but that doesn't mean we have to give up! Here are some things you can do right now to prevent those pesky wrinkles and fine lines from appearing sooner than they should:
Use the right skin care products
While you cannot stop the ageing process, you can reduce its impact on your skin by using products that promote cell renewal and collagen synthesis. Here are a few things to look for:
1. Vitamin C
We absolutely love this multitasking ingredient for its skin brightening and anti-wrinkle properties! Try The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution Serum, which contains 12% Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, a stabilised source of vitamin C that does not oxidise as easily as other serums.
By using antioxidant-rich products, you can help your skin defend itself against free radicals and thus delay the appearance of signs of ageing. The best part is that antioxidants can be found in a wide range of skin care ingredients, from cleansers to moisturisers.
3. Alpha Hydroxy Acids
AHAs such as Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid are not only great chemical exfoliants to clear your pores, but it can also help brighten any dark spots and keep your skin radiant and smooth.
4. Retinol/ Tretinoin
Retinol is a topical form of Vitamin A which helps to increase skin’s thickness and collagen production, firming and refining the complexion and restoring its vibrancy – a literal fountain of youth.
