Choosing An Anti-Aging Skincare Routine for Youthful Skin

We all want to glow with natural beauty but sometimes it feels like gravity and time are against us. To help you glow, we have gathered our best natural anti-aging skincare products – all without parabens, alcohol, synthetic chemicals, and other nasties, so you can safely take care of your skin at every age. 

There are many factors that influence skin aging. The natural aging process & your genetics play a key role. With time our skin loses some of its youthfulness and fine lines and wrinkles appear, skin becomes drier and thinner.

Our environment and lifestyle choices can cause our skin to age prematurely. By taking some preventative actions, we can influence how this type of aging affects our skin and can slow the process down. 

The sun plays a major role in prematurely aging the skin. Whether spending a day on the beach or running errands, sun protection is essential. If you have spent a substantial amount of time in the sun without using sun protection, you are likely to see the effects as your skin matures. Age spots and larger areas of dark patches can appear on your face, arms, hands, neck, and chest. Applying a sunscreen everyday can help fade age spots, prevent new spots from forming and reduce your risk of skin cancer. 

Cleanse your skin gently. Scrubbing vigorously and using harsh products that contain sodium lauryl sulphate can irritate the skin. Irritating your skin accelerates aging so you will want to use a gentle cleanser to preserve your skin barrier and keep it resistant to dehydration and damage. It also means your skincare products will be able to absorb into your skin and work more effectively. 

Moisturizing your skin everyday traps moisture, giving it a more youthful appearance. As we age the skin loses its ability to retain water and produces less oil, giving the skin a dull appearance. Using a moisturizer that contains water-binding humectants like hyaluronic acid will help to instantly quench thirsty skin. 

As we age the skin loses collagen and as collagen diminishes, our skin loses its firmness and begins to sag. Jowls appear, permanent lines from the nose to lip line, expression lines become more visible and increase in depth, large pores due to the lack of firmness and vertical lines due to loss of elasticity appear. To reduce visible wrinkles, prevent wrinkles and increase skin firmness and density use products that contain collagen-stimulating ingredients. 

Around 50, the skin’s pH level changes and with this change, the skin becomes more sensitive and more prone to inflammation and irritation. If you notice any of these changes you should use fragrance-free products that are safe, anti-irritant and non-allergic to the skin. 

It is never too later to benefit from anti-aging skincare. By protecting your skin from environmental factors and using high performing products, you can smooth wrinkles, tighten, and improve your complexion for a young-looker skin. 

How to select anti-aging skincare products: 

  • Start with a sunscreen and moisturiser: Team Dr Joseph’s Ultra Intense Hyaluronic Age Repair Cream is a highly effective, luxury facial care for demanding skin. Super antioxidants make the skin feel firm and smooth and can support cell renewal. The natural hyaluronic acid has an intensive moisturizing effect. A composition of unique functional ingredient complexes for daily use and timeless beauty. Our sun care offers professional protection against harmful UV rays through optimal UVA and UVB filters and strengthens the skin's resistance and self-protection through plant-based functional ingredients. So, you can enjoy your time outside without worries.
  • Treat your number one anti-aging concern with a serum: Team Dr Joseph’s Hyaluronic Age Repair Booster Serum is a rich luxury cream serum with deep-acting functional ingredient complexes and plant-based functional ingredients for the intensive care of demanding facial skin. The unique combination of firming, skin-smoothing and muscle-relaxing active ingredients makes this serum a natural botanical Botox-like alternative and ensures a firm and even complexion. For long-lasting beauty and a vital appearance.
  • Use a fruit acid exfoliator: Exfoliants are a great way of getting rid of dead skin cells, improving skin tone and appearance. Team Dr Joseph’s Fruit Acid Peel is a gentle peel with natural, bio-active fruit acids for demanding skin. Delicate fruit acids from apple, citrus and grape gently remove dead skin cells and can stimulate the skin's natural renewal process. For a smooth and soft skin feeling.
  • Targeted treatment for the eyes and lips: The skin around our eyes and lips is particularly thin and, therefore, more prone to wrinkles. That is why they need specialized moisturizing care products with highly effective, natural functional ingredients. Team Dr Joseph’s Daily Vitalizing Eye Treatment is a nourishing eye care product with highly effective natural ingredients such as Adonsonia Lifting Complex which has a ‘face lift’ effect and is powerfully moisturizing. Intense Hyaluronic Lip Treatment is a concentrated lip care product with deep-acting, natural functional ingredients. Enriched with natural hyaluronic acid, this specialized care provides intense moisture and can cushion fine lines and wrinkles around the lip area.
  • Give the products time to work and have realistic expectations: Be patient and give the products time to work. We advise giving new products six weeks to three months to see the long-term effects and to continue using the products to see results.

The earlier you start taking care of your skin, the better! This means incorporating well-aging products into your skincare routine, drinking enough water, eating wholesome foods, and staying out of the sun, whether you are in your thirties or seventies. Team Dr Joseph products work, and you can see measurable improvements in skin firmness and hydration and a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles. The above-mentioned products are star performers with powerful high-tech ingredients to target multiple signs of aging.
