Women all over the world spend so much time and money trying to get their skin back to the tight, wrinkle and blemish free appearance of their youth. While there are procedures to aid in this goal, the truth is that having a skincare routine is the most effective way to combat the signs of aging—and it doesn’t need to be complicated either.
Step One: Cleanse Morning and Night
As in any skincare routine, start with cleansing the skin both in the morning and at night. Glycolic acid is a key factor in your routine, because it will exfoliate dead skin cells and lighten pigmentation while stimulating the collagen in your skin. Our Ageless Total Facial Cleanser is the perfect anti-aging cleanser.
Step Two: Masques and Serums
A good micro-exfoliating masque that acts like a mini-peel should be applied several times a week, depending on your skin type and desired outcome. The Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque has a blend of micro crystals and hydroxyl acids to rejuvenate the skin while also containing lightening agents to diminish dark spots. This masque is suitable for application and removal after the skin has been cleansed in the evening.
The Ageless Total Anti-Aging Serum with Vectorize-technology is a blend of alpha hydroxy acids with anti-oxidants that help reduce the appearance of wrinkles by removing dead skin cells, allowing new cells to take their place. This can be applied both day and night.
Retinol is another name for vitamin A, which is an antioxidant. Retinol also increases the collagen production on your skin. It is beneficial in managing discoloration, wrinkles, and acne. The Ageless Total Retinol-A Crème should be applied at night, after skin has been cleansed, and can be combined with any Image serum or crème.
The Ageless Total Pure Hyaluronic Filler will instantly fill fine lines. This serum is especially beneficial for dry, inflamed or post treatment skin. It too can be mixed with any other Image serum or crème and may be used morning and night.
Step Three: Eye Crème
We also can’t forget about that delicate area under the eyes. Ageless Total Eyelift Crème blends retinol and polypeptides. Polypeptides are strands of amino acids and are related to protein molecules. Since collagen is essentially protein, when peptides are applied to the skin, it causes the skin to produce more collagen. The eye crème could be used both day and night.
Step Four: Moisturize.
In the morning, you’ll want to use a moisturizer with an SPF in it, such as Prevention +. The alternative, using a separate moisturizer and then following it up with an SPF is better than nothing, but it will often reduce the effectiveness of both. Thus, a product containing both is ideal.
For the evening, use the Ageless Total Repair Crème, which is filled with nourishing anti-oxidants and exfoliating properties such as glycolic and retinol. Applying the crème at night will promote cellular turnover while you sleep.
