1. Use a retinol based product
The most revered, biologically proven topical anti-ageing ingredient is vitamin A, known as retinoid or retinol. We recommend our Age Prestige Anti-oxidising & Detoxifying Rose Serum for people in their 20s, if you start using a retinol product consistently now, then you should never have to switch over to a stronger prescription. The idea is that you’re getting ahead of the wrinkles by using it preventatively. That said, those in their 40s and 50 can use this product to help boost radiance while aiming to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
“Look for an anti-wrinkle cream that features retinol high up on its list of ingredients, they significantly reduce wrinkles” Dr Robin Stones, Dermatologist
2. For wrinkle prevention, use sun protection—365 days a year, rain or shine, inside or out.
How to prevent wrinkles? Sunscreen, when applied generously during your morning routine and then reapplied as needed, is the MOST effective way to preventing wrinkles. Daylight and sunlight (even when coming through windows) are causing a considerable amount of DNA damage to your skin without you even realising it.
“90% of wrinkles are caused by sun damager so I also recommend using a good sunscreen - because if you want to avoid wrinkles, it is better to prevent sun damage in the first place.” Dr Robin Stones, dermatologist
We recommend our Ceramide Soothing & Protective Day Cream with SPF20 a potent, free radical-fighting blend, this neutralises the effects of everyday exposure to environmental aggressors – preventing irreparable DNA damage, to maintain your skin’s youthful bloom.
