There is a lot of talk that creams have a superficial effect and therefore cannot provide effective anti-aging protection. It is worth knowing that ani-age creams are effective, but they must be used properly. It is worth learning more about this subject.
Which anti-age creams are worth reaching for?
The best ani age creams are those that contain active ingredients with proven anti-aging effects. These include vitamin C, retinol or hyaluronic acid. The latter is a natural component of the skin and provides it with the right level of firmness and hydration. It fills the gaps in the structure of the skin and prevents water loss, effectively binding water molecules. It is worth knowing that one molecule of hyaluronic acid can bind up to 1,000 water molecules. It is still important to remember that this ingredient can have different forms, and therefore reach different parts of the skin. It is worth reaching for products that contain both low-molecular, medium-molecular and high-molecular acid. Instead of vitamin C, you can choose anti-aging creams with vitamin Cg. It is worth knowing that this vitamin C derivative increases the effect of sunscreen products, so it better protects the skin from the harmful effects of oxygen free radicals, which contribute to the development of skin diseases, hyperpigmentation and premature aging. Instead of retinol, the cream’s formulation can include the milder pro-retinol. It works well even on sensitive skin. In addition, in the composition of anti-age creams you can look for niacinamide, which regulates sebum secretion and promotes collagen and elastin synthesis. Also important are peptides and micelles for a healthy hydrolipidic barrier.
How to use anti-age creams to be effective?
In order for anti-age creams to be effective and actually reduce hyperpigmentation, provide hydration to the skin on different layers, as well as eliminate wrinkles or firm the skin, it is important to use them in conjunction with proper skin cleansing and after using a matching facial serum. It is worth knowing that serums penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and can rebuild the skin at that level. The cream will do a good job of protecting the outer layer of the skin and erasing shallower wrinkles. Note that the anti-age cream should not be applied immediately after applying the serum, there should be a minimum interval of several minutes so that the first cosmetic can be well absorbed. Also, the creams should not be spread, but preferably gently patted in. You can also use a massager to improve the absorption of cosmetic ingredients.
Is it worth opting for a skin cycling evening skin care routine?
Anti-age creams can be used as part of an evening skin cycling skin care routine. For those containing retinol, this is recommended. The vitamin A derivative rebuilds the skin best precisely at night. This is when all the repair processes take place. Skin cycling allows you to maintain an interval in the use of serums with retinol. With them, you can protect the skin from irritation, and at the same time have a comprehensive and anti-aging effect. Two days of skin regeneration and nourishment is enough to return to the cycle of exfoliation and retinoid treatment. With a proper evening skin care routine, skin can look radiant in the morning. All you need to do is cleanse it of impurities and excess sebum, and then you can get on with your makeup routine.
