We’ve all got that one friend who looks as though she isn’t ageing, and there’s a good chance that’s because she has a strict and stringent anti-ageing regime. A proper routine will consist of using several products to target several individual areas, rather than expecting one product to do everything. With this in mind, we thought we’d take a look at which products you should be using for each area which is most susceptible to the different signs of ageing, to help you bring your routine up to scratch:
The eyes are one of the first places that people report the signs of ageing. This is because of a combination of things – the skin in this area is thin and it’s an area of high movement, which leads to accelerated collagen loss. To combat this, you’ll need to invest in a good anti-ageing eye cream like Decleor Jasmine Eye Cream.
The mouth is another high movement area, and things like smoking will also cause accelerated ageing. As well as looking unsightly, fine lines around the mouth play havoc with cosmetics, allowing lipstick to bleed into the lines, giving you a feathered look. Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment is an anti-ageing lip and perioral treatment that smoothes the appearance of laugh and feather lines while you sleep.
Loss of definition around the chin is another tell-tale sign of ageing and can give the face a very droopy appearance if not tightened up. Investing in a good tightening treatment like Elemis Pro-Definition Night Cream, which combines cutting-edge plant stem cells with super-lifting arjuna and facial-shaping lupin, to help reduce the appearance of sagging jowls, cheeks and chin.
Neck and Decolletage
The neck and decolletage are a prime spot for the signs of ageing, and one that people often neglect. Regular face cream is often not ideal for dealing with the skin of the neck and decolletage as this area is thicker than the face, so opting for a specialist cream like Elemis Pro-Collagen Neck and Decollete Balm is important. It’s a potent formula which will firm and smooth the delicate skin of the neck and decollete, whilst reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
You may scoff at the idea of an anti-ageing cream for your hands, but it’s a fact that the hands are highly susceptible to the signs of ageing. From wrinkles to dark spots, the hands will show your age quicker than almost any part of your body, so we recommend a proper anti-ageing hand cream to combat this, such as Jan Marini Luminate Hand Cream. Its multi-functional solution is shown to brighten overall skin tone and decrease the appearance of wrinkles, uneven texture, and discoloration on the hands.
