When it comes to your skin, it’s never too early to think about putting together an anti-aging routine. In fact, there are certain steps you can take to help reduce the look of the first signs of aging or even protect against some of them. Below, three easy anti-aging steps you can incorporate into your skin care routine starting now.

1. Wear Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen Daily

Is it rainy or cloudy outside? Well, we’re here to tell you that you should still wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen! When you spend prolonged periods of the time in the sun without wearing protection, this can lead to damage, which can lead to visible signs of aging down the road, like dark spots and wrinkles. What’s more, you can get burned even on cloudy days. A broad-spectrum sunscreen can help protect against both UVA rays (the ones that cause damage) and UVB rays (the ones that burns).

The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using a broad-spectrum sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher and reapplying it every two hours. There are other steps you can take to stay sun-safe as well. Try to avoid the sun during its peak hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.), wear UV-blocking sunglasses and a broad-brimmed hat, and seek shade as much as possible—especially if you are out during those peak hours. The Skin Cancer Foundation notes that there are certain areas that people tend to overlook, such as the lips, ears, around the eyes, neck, scalp, hands, and feet. So, make sure to show those areas some love!

Sunscreen should be the last step in your morning skin care routine, after cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer. However, if you want to multitask, you can reach for a moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum sunscreen to cut down on the number of steps in your skin care routine—just remember to reapply sunscreen every two hours.

The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30 is formulated with glycolic acid, vitamin C, and Pro-Retinol in a hydrating moisturizer to help correct the look of dull, uneven tone. It’s also formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen to help protect against the sun’s aging UVA/UVB rays. Immediately, skin will look brighter, while dull, uneven tone are renewed with continued use over time. Apply 15 minutes before going outside—and throw it in your bag so you can reapply every two hours!

2. Add an Eye Cream to Your Regimen

It’s never too early to start using an eye cream. The L’Oréal Paris Eye Defense is a light, non-greasy gel-cream that is specially formulated to defend against signs of premature aging around the eyes. Formulated with caffeine and hyaluronic acid, it can help reduce the look of puffiness, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles. Apply it in small dots around your eye and smooth until absorbed, morning and night. When you’re applying eye cream, be gentle, as the skin around your eyes is thinner than the rest of your face’s skin.

3. Use a Peel Pad at Night

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, your skin repairs itself while you sleep—meaning that nighttime is a great time to use targeted skin care products. Beyond wrinkles, dull, uneven tone can make skin look older. And as your skin’s natural ability to shed surface dead skin cells declines with age, dark spots and uneven tone become more visible, leaving skin looking older and duller. Enter the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads. They’re formulated with glycolic acid to help gently yet effectively resurface dull, uneven tone. Plus, the multi-ply textured pads also physically resurface dead skin cells. Immediately, skin will look brighter, while skin tone will look more even with continue use over time. Just smooth a pad gently over cleansed skin at night. Since alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic acid can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, be sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen in the morning.
