Youthful and vibrant-looking skin is sought after by many people. Fortunately, the skincare market has a plethora of products that are readily available to help you achieve the best looking skin so you can continue to look healthy and young. Although there are a large number of products available, choosing the correct skin care products can make a monumental difference in your complexion and the reduction of aging skin where fine lines and wrinkles may be present alongside dullness and pigmentation. The right skin care products and skin routine can make a significant difference in your appearance so that your skin can stay youthful and bright in the long run.

At Skin Society, we offer a range of treatments that can effectively reverse any signs of aging and restore your youthful glow but they prove to be most effective when coupled with an at-home skincare routine. Here are 7 of the best anti-aging skin care tips that you can do at home in between your treatments:

1. Apply Sunscreen Daily

We all love sitting in the sun during the most beautiful days of the year without realizing the damage it can do to our skin. We recommend applying sunscreen every day to the face and neck as it is crucial for skin protection against UV rays. The UV rays that the sun emits can be extremely harsh on the skin and cause long-term damage or even sunspots. Prevention is key when it comes to damaging or aging your skin and although aging is a natural process, wearing SPF 30 or higher every day will reduce the detrimental effects of the sun on the skin.

If you have found that you are already suffering from sun damage with the appearance of sun or age spots, you may want to consider a non-invasive cosmetic treatment with us at the Skin Society. Our most effective treatments used to reverse any damage made from UV rays to your skin includes laser or light therapy, microdermabrasion or dermabrasion and chemical skin peels. Depending on your skin type and individual needs, we can discuss the best procedure for you that will give you the radiant skin that you deserve. In the meantime, continue to apply SPF30 or higher to avoid further damage and protect your skin as best you can.

2. Use a Gentle Face Wash

Applying cleanser every morning and night is an integral part of any skincare routine. As we age, our skin becomes more sensitive and oily so it is important to use a face wash that won’t damage the epidermal layer of the skin. We recommend using a gentle touch cleanser that is light to avoid any irritation to the skin. As a bonus, the face wash should have the essential fatty acid ingredients to hydrate the skin and fight against damage from compounds that can attach to the skin, also known as, free radicals. When applying your face wash, it is recommended to do so in a circular motion as aggressive scrubbing can in fact accelerate aging and irritate your skin.

3. Moisturize

As we get older, the skin produces less sebum which means although there is a lesser chance of acne, the skin will dry out easier. After your cleansing routine, applying a rich anti-aging moisturizer is essential to hydrate the skin and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Many of the creams on the market will contain nourishing ceramides or hyaluronic acid to help with attracting water into the skin and sealing it in.

4. Apply Serum

The application of serums is a targeted step that allows you to address your most obvious skin concerns with some of the most powerful ingredients. We recommend using two different serums during your skincare routine that should be lightly patted to your skin; one for the daytime and another for the night. For the day, you should opt for a Vitamin-C serum to help with firming and toning the skin but at night, a retinol serum is recommended. Retinol is great for the production of collagen, reduction of pigmentation and increased cell regeneration. There is a variety of serums available on the market that will cater to your skin’s needs.

5. Exfoliate

Exfoliating regularly, at least once a week, can do wonders for your skin. Not only does it work to regularly remove any dead skin cells on the skin’s surface but the process of exfoliation can help to brighten your complexion and even out the texture of your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The best exfoliants available for aging skin usually contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as lactic, hyaluronic and glycolic acid.

We also recommend coming in for tailored skin treatments such as oxygen infusion therapy or skin resurfacing at least once a month where we can exfoliate your skin beyond the surface to boost the production of collagen and address any imperfections.

6. Apply Eye Cream

Eye creams are a great way to prevent signs of aging which are usually present around the eyes first. The eyes are very delicate and eye creams contain special ingredients that can address your specific needs without any irritation. The right eye cream can target fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles and even bags. We recommend using a lightweight eye cream for the morning and a rich formula that contains retinol or hyaluronic acid for further hydration and soothing factors for the nighttime.

7. Watch What You Eat

A nutritious diet and the type of food you choose to eat can significantly impact and accelerate the natural signs of aging. It is recommended that you eat food that will nourish and hydrate your skin to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. You should do your best to avoid alcohol which causes dehydration and anything that is high in sugar. Instead, you should opt for Vitamin-C-rich foods and increase your protein intake with lean meats, fish and beans or legumes to help with the process of building strong collagen. You may also want to incorporate Omega-3, fish oil or flaxseed supplements to keep your skin moist and prevent the formation of wrinkles.
