Fine lines and wrinkles are two common signs of skin aging that go hand-in-hand. Unfortunately, as we age, our skin naturally loses moisture and elasticity—it’s just a fact of life. And while we’re all for embracing aging skin, that doesn’t mean that you should neglect it! On the contrary, aging skin needs extra TLC to help replenish lost moisture and stave off things like fine lines and wrinkles. Wondering what the best facial treatment and skin care products for wrinkles really are? Keep reading to learn about our best anti-aging tips for fine lines and wrinkles and add these into your skin care routine, ASAP.
Of course, you already know what fine lines and wrinkles are, but you may not realize how one progresses and turns into the other. Like we said, it’s normal and natural for our skin to eventually lose fullness and become thinner and very dry, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). While we can’t control the natural aging process, or our genetic predisposition to aging skin, we can control other environmental factors that contribute to aging skin (re: cause or make wrinkles worse). Things like sun exposure, smoking, and air pollution can all age our skin more quickly than it naturally would, according to the AAD. That aside, your skin care routine also plays a huge part in keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Consider adding the following tips to your repertoire to maximize the benefits of your anti-aging routine.
Skin naturally loses moisture as we get older, and the key to any good anti-aging routine is to put back what’s lost. In other words: One of the best facial treatments for wrinkles that’s out there isn’t anything complicated—it’s just giving your skin more moisture. To give your skin just that and maximize your skin’s hydration levels, layer serum under moisturizer. As the AAD explains, moisturizer literally traps hydration on your skin, which helps minimize the appearance of fine line and wrinkles over time. After you step out of the shower or finish cleansing your complexion, follow these next two steps, in this order: face serum and face moisturizer. Below, we’re sharing our best serum and moisturizer options for aging skin. Just remember to be patient (we know, it’s hard!), as most products take at least six weeks to work, according to the AAD.
L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Golden Serum: This serum stimulates surface skin cell renewal to reveal more youthful-looking skin. After you cleanse, apply a light layer of serum onto your entire complexion, then wait about 30 seconds before reaching for your moisturizer.
L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum: If hydration is what you’re after, this serum is for you. Formulated with hyaluronic acid (which can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water), this serum works to replenish skin and reduce wrinkles with continued use over time.
L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Honey Day Cream: Formulated with nurturing oils and manuka honey extract, this creamy face moisturizer penetrates the skin’s surface layer to restore moisture to the driest of skin. Use every single morning, right after your face serum.
The skin around your eye area is very delicate—it’s the thinnest on your entire face—so it needs extra moisture. Whatever your age, skin type, or skin care concerns, consider investing in a quality eye cream that will keep the eye area hydrated. Try the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Eye Gel, which will nurture dry skin, de-puff under-eye bags, and help brighten dark circles. Apply your eye cream twice daily, every morning and evening.
We often place so much thought and energy into caring for our complexion that we forget about another area that’s quick to show signs of aging skin—the neck. Wondering why you should pay attention to your neck? Well, here’s another question for you: Why should your skin care routine stop at your jawline? The answer: It shouldn’t! Having a perfectly hydrated and plump complexion is great, but it’s definitely detracted from if your neck hasn’t received its fair share of TLC. Follow a skin care routine for your neck that’s similar to what you have in place for your face. Apply a moisturizer and SPF onto your neck and chest daily, and double down on the moisturizer at night before hitting the hay.
Here’s a super scary fact that will convince you to slather on your SPF: Every time you are outdoors without sun protection, the sun’s rays are damaging your skin, according to the AAD. This is true even if you don’t get a sunburn! Over time, this damage builds up and, per the AAD, it can make you look years older than you naturally would. The solution? You guessed it—SPF! Sun protection can help slow down the signs of sun damage. The key is to use it every single day, rain or shine, and reapply it at least every two hours, plus immediately after swimming or sweating. If you’re the type to forget this last step in your skin care routine, consider using a face moisturizer that’s also formulated with SPF, such as the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Anti Wrinkle Firming Day Cream SPF 25.
Beyond wearing sunscreen every day, taking other sun protection measures should be part of your anti-aging skin care routine. Heed the FDA’s advice and seek shade between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM and wear protective accessories like a broad-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
Give your skin a moisture boost and address your aging skin concerns while you sleep with the help of an overnight mask, like the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Intensive Overnight Mask, or a night cream, like the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Honey Night Balm. Even though you’re resting up, your skin is actively refreshing itself while you catch your z’s, making it the prime time to wear a super-hydrating mask or cream!
