Are you wondering why to use an anti-wrinkle cream and when to start? Or if it’s useful to use anti-aging creams on young skin? If you are concerned about the appearance of the first visible signs of aging, we explain this fascinating mechanism in detail and guide you in choosing the right anti-aging products.
The importance of taking care of your skin
Understanding skin aging
Skin aging is a complex mechanism related both to external factors and internal changes. Skin aging can therefore be the result of:
- Natural aging processes (genetic, hormonal changes)
- External stressors (stress, sun exposure, certain facial expressions, tobacco, pollution, hygiene, and lifestyle choices)
Cell renewal slows down with age. Dead cells therefore accumulate on the surface of the epidermis. At the same time, collagen production as well as elastin and hyaluronic acid production slow down. The appearance of the first signs of wrinkles can then be observed.
What is the difference between anti-aging products and anti-wrinkle products?
Before asking yourself why to use an anti-wrinkle cream and when to start, it’s important to differentiate between the products at our disposal.
Anti-aging treatments are complete treatments. They target the mechanisms involved in skin aging to prevent them or slow them down.
An anti-wrinkle treatment acts on the appearance of wrinkles that are already visible, which it will fill and smooth with its active ingredients. The aim is to give you a radiant glow!
When should you start using anti-aging products?
The different recommendations from the experts
At age 30, formulas with the appropriate doses of active ingredients should be chosen. Then, around the age of 40, 50, or 60, you should rely on treatments that target specific needs: sagging skin on the oval of the face, wrinkles around the eyes, loss of elasticity, etc.
Since the renewal of skin cells starts slowing down in our twenties, care should be taken to ensure good daily hydration (especially if you have sensitive skin) from this age, as well as related treatments.
The differences between prevention and treatment
Acting before the appearance of visible signs of aging helps limit the effects of aging. Prevention is therefore the strategy to adopt from a young age.
Treatment (using serums, creams etc.) helps treat wrinkles and signs of aging that have already emerged or those in the process of appearing.
How to choose the right anti-aging products
Now you understand why to use an anti-wrinkle cream and from what age. We will now explain how to choose the right product.
A suitable skin care regimen
Several factors should be observed before choosing your beauty products, such as age and skin types.
Dry skin, which is more vulnerable than oily skin to signs of aging, should therefore be particularly pampered.
The time of application is also very important. There is a distinction between a day cream and an anti-aging night cream. However, most PHYT’S creams are suitable for both day and night use.
What are the habits to adopt to prevent skin aging?
Consider adopting these gestures to preserve the beauty of your complexion and regain a youthful glow:
- Keep your skin hydrated (whether you have young or mature skin);
- Protect yourself from sun damage;
- Adopt a balanced diet;
- Use a moisturizing cream daily;
- Cleanse your skin properly.
All you have to do is create a suitable daily skin care routine, regardless of your age!
