A Minimalist’s Anti-Aging Skincare Routine

The Anti-Aging Skincare Routine

Step 1: Cleanser

While you might be eager to lather on the SPF after learning about the effect of sun exposure, it's essential that you first start your anti-aging skincare routine by applying cleanser. Applying a high-quality cleanser in the morning can support your skin’s barrier and help ensure that your skin is clean and make-up free. It can also help prepare your skin for the other steps in your anti-aging skincare routine that contain key ingredients.

Step 2: Exfoliator

It should come as no surprise that our bodies undergo changes as we age—especially our skin. Over time, dead skin cells aren’t replaced by new cells as quickly, which means our skin may start to look dull and uneven. By using an exfoliant during your anti-aging skincare routine, you can help sweep away impurities and buildup so your skin feels soft and smooth. The good news? It’s not necessary every day; just try to exfoliate every two to three days in the morning or during your nightly skincare routine.

Step 3: Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C can support the body in many ways, and using a serum can give your skin the support it may need. Many believe that vitamin C serum benefits the feeling of skin firmness as well as helping to brighten and even skin tone. It can also help protect your skin against pollutants in the air. You may notice that many products claim to be the best vitamin C serum for face wrinkles that are visible. So, which one should you choose? To deeply hydrate the skin, look for serums containing hyaluronic acid, like the Artistry™ Intensive Skincare Advanced Vitamin C + HA Treatment. This powerful plumper contains wrinkle-targeting technology and antioxidant protection. What does this mean for you? It can help smooth, reduce, and repair the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles within weeks. 

Step 4: Moisturizer

Now that you’ve applied your vitamin C, it’s time to seal the deal with moisturizer. But, before you grab the first one you find on the shelf, make sure it’s formulated for your skin type—combination, normal, dry, or oily. Finding moisturizers with the right ingredients – like retinoids, peptides, and hyaluronic acids – can also help limit the total number of products needed for your routine.

For Your Nightly Skincare Routine

Have extra time in your evening? Level up your nightly skincare routine with additional products based on your needs and how much time you have. We recommend:

  • A mask: Skip your daily exfoliator and opt for a mask to help supply your skin with extra nutrients.
  • Anti-aging serums: Targeted skin serums can help further lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Eye cream: As a final step, consider applying eye cream to help provide extra moisture to the sensitive skin around your eyes.

Your anti-aging skincare routine doesn’t have to require a lot of effort. With just a few products, you can give your skin the support it needs without sacrificing too much time or money.
