It’s no secret that aging is inevitable, and eventually, it becomes harder and harder to hide our age as it starts to reflect on our skin. Did you know that as early as 25 your skin starts to lose key nutrients by 1 percent each year? But, here’s the good news! We have control over how we treat our skin and what we put on it every day to combat, slow, and even reverse signs of aging. So, to help you win the war against wrinkles, we have put together the ultimate anti-aging guide with tips, tricks, and ingredients that will help you postpone the appearance of wrinkles as long as possible!
The earlier you start using anti-aging products and developing a daily skincare routine of your own, the more optimal results you will get. Start in your 20’s with a few simple products to focus on prevention, then vamp up your regimen in your 30’s for maintenance with more powerful actives and ingredients. Continue the trend as you say hello to your 40’s and then 50’s and beyond to actively smooth and reverse!
Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen
Protecting your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays may arguably be the single most important preventative tactic in avoiding premature aging of the skin. Unprotected sun exposure causes not only wrinkles, but also reduced elasticity, dehydration, hyperpigmentation, and compromised texture. Lather up with a zinc oxide-based sunscreen every morning to ensure proper prevention of harmful damage over time.
Not all skincare is created equal. Many products and treatments that claim to be beneficial can actually cause long-term damage and even expedite the aging process. Do your research and read the labels. Reach for products that enhance circulation and blood flow, increase production of collagen and elastin, boost skin nutrients, repair a compromised barrier, and support lipids. Osmosis boasts 4 all-star serums that are proven to be among the most powerful and effective in age prevention:
- StemFactor utilizes our advanced exosome technology which maximizes the delivery of over 600 growth factors and skin proteins derived from adult stem cells to stimulate new cells and encourage the rebuilding of collagen and elastin. A perfect recipe to reveal a brighter, more youthful you!
- Vitamin A is widely recognized in the skincare and esthetics world as a must-have for your anti-aging routine. The difference is, Osmosis uses a form of Vitamin A called retinaldehyde (a “precursor” to retin-A) that is more easily recognized and absorbed by the skin which makes it non-irritating. In addition, it is coated with phosphatidylcholine (try saying that 3 times fast!) to help penetrate the molecule deep into the dermal layer of the skin through our exclusive liposomal delivery system for boosted results and nutrients. Your skin will thank you, trust us.
- Epidermal Repair is a crucial piece of the anti-aging puzzle, especially as you enter your 30’s and 40’s. Rescue targets the wound repair aspect of aging by utilizing an oxygen molecule to neutralize toxins, activate your skin’s innate wound repair systems, and provide the skin with the tools it needs to treat age spots and texture concerns. This revolutionary serum will change the way you skincare!
- DNA Repair is vital to your anti-aging efforts in that it is clinically proven to increase skin elasticity and firmness while repairing sun damage and pigmentation. Catalyst AC-11, our DNA Repair Serum, flaunts our patented zinc finger technology that works hard long after you apply it to transform your skin cells for powerful results!
The overall health of your skin will assist in warding off wrinkles much longer than compromised or nutrient-deficient skin, and this happens from the inside out. Support your topical skincare efforts by diving inside the body, too. Food and drink that contain a high content of sugar, caffeine, or preservatives will deprive the skin and body of essentials it needs to stay smooth, hydrated, and brilliant.
