Starting to notice fine lines and dark spots? Are crows feet suddenly appearing around your eyes? When is the right time to start using anti aging products in your daily beauty routine? We have the inside scoop on how you can stay gorgeous and structure your skincare regimen for life!
First, we must of course talk about prevention! For anti aging purposes it is always easier to prevent rather than reverse and the sooner you start assessing your skin concerns and addressing them, the healthier your skin will be in the long run. The best way to prevent aging is by following a daily skincare regimen at every age. Your beauty routine should include cleansing, toning, a serum and a moisturizer each day. And the final product is key; the most important preventative care is wearing a daily SPF foundation! The sun can cause skin damage and premature aging so it’s important to protect yourself! You should also schedule monthly facial treatments to address deeper skin concerns. Regular facials will allow a professional to focus on your areas of concern, provide a deep and thorough cleanse, utilize professional products and treatment masks, and recommend appropriate products as your skin changes. These facials and time with your skincare professional will help guide how to take care of your skin through each stage of your life.
Now it’s time to delve deeper and concentrate on when you will really need to focus your attention on using anti aging products, and it may be a little sooner than you expected; you should start your effort in your late twenties, but you can always start sooner of course! Now just because you are starting the anti aging process at this age it doesn’t mean that you will be using the same products as your grandmother, there are particular products that will help you combat the aging process in the most effective way for your age group.
When you’re starting this process in your 20s your skin could still be a bit on the oily side so using an exfoliating mask 2-3 times a week with cucumber oil which has proteolytic enzymes will help refine the skin and keep pores clean and clear, the One Minute Mask is ideal for getting the job done. The mask has tiny spheres of rice bran wax and lactic acid that provides exfoliation while oil controlling seaweed, astringent lemongrass, fresh cooling cucumber, and blemish fighting lily of the valley leaves skin clean, clear, smooth and balanced. A light, daily moisturizer to hydrate, protect and start providing active anti aging ingredients like thiosomes and oxysomoes is also needed, such as the Hydra 4® Day Protection Cream.
As you approach your 30s its time to boost the nourishment that you’re giving to your skin as your body’s natural ability to renew itself begins to slow down. A perfect treatment is the Repêchage C-Serum Seaweed Filtrate, think of this as a multi-vitamin for your skin!

This power-packed serum with help give your skin the nutrients it will be craving. You can use this serum right under your daily moisturizer.
Once you reach your 40s you’ll want to start incorporating firming products into your daily beauty routine, a rich cream such as the Vita Cura® Triple Firming Cream will help improve skin elasticity along with skin texture and tone. A cream like this is a great introduction into firming products. As you transition into your 50s and beyond you should adopt a full line of anti aging products, this would be the time to start using all of the components of the Vita Cura® Collection, which is chocked full of anti-aging ingredients and exclusive seaweed, that has active ingredients to help nourish, hydrate, and tone your skin for a more youthful looking complexion.
