Your skin won’t look young forever, so face the future with anti-aging and premature aging prevention products.  Researchers say skin starts chronologically aging around 55, but by using the right skincare products it can make a big difference in your complexion which means your skin will look younger for longer. Here are a few tips and beauty buys to help.

La Mer moisturizing soft cream, Belk

Use rich Face Creams. Oil glands become less active at an older age. Richer face creams help to trap in water that plump up deep crevices and facial lines.

Clinique Exfoliating Scrub, Macy’s

Exfoliate Weekly. As you age, the rate at which your body sheds dull and dead skin cells begins to slow down. Exfoliating helps speed up your skin's process and helps it to behave younger. Exfoliators work against the top layers of the skin to remove dead, dulling surface cells via rubbing and sloughing.

Sunday Riley A+ High Dose Retinol Serum, Sephora

Use Products with Retinol. Retinol has winkle reducing benefits.  In essence, retinol is a form of vitamin A, that is crucial for eyesight as well as maintenance of the skin. As a skin care ingredient, retinol works to stimulate collagen production, accelerate skin turnover, and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles while blurring acne marks and other blemishes in the process.

Anti-Aging Complex Emulsion Broad Spectrum SPF 30, Merle Norman

Increase Your SPF. Broad-spectrum sunscreens with an SPF 15 or higher block out 93 percent of ultraviolet (UVB) rays and filter out UVA rays as well. UVB and UVA rays cause skin to age. The higher the SPF the better chances of blocking the rays, wrinkles and age spots.

Drops of Youth™ Youth Gentle Foam wash, The Body S​hop

Use a Gentle Facewash.  Cleansing a priority. Anti-aging moisturizers and serums can only do the job they promise if they have a clean canvas to penetrate into. It’s important to pick a cleanser that not only rids your skin of debris and other surface impurities but also contains gentle ingredients that help address the common concerns of mature skin.
