The main difference between an anti-winkle treatment and an anti-aging treatment is their range of actions. Both treatments offer the promise of hydration, but while an anti-wrinkle cream focuses solely on treating surface lines and wrinkles, an anti-aging cream penetrates deep down to treat a greater number of age-related skin symptoms (spots, wrinkles, firmness).
Anti-aging cream: is it really useful?
Some people might think that an anti-aging cream has no specific effect and that a basic moisturizing cream is enough. However, this is not the case because anti-aging creams have specific formulas that contain several powerful active ingredients that act on the signs of aging: wrinkles, sagging skin, spots...
However, there is no point in starting to use this cream too early. Instead, young women may prefer a simple moisturizing cream or an all-in-one cream (foundation, moisturizing, nourishing, day cream...) to be applied every day.
Anti-ageing: day care or night care
Although there are anti-ageing creams to put on during the day, it is preferable to apply an anti-ageing night cream on a clean face. The metabolism of the cells is not the same according to the hour and it is during sleep that the skin repairs itself best.
For an even greater effect, the cream can be applied on the face with light massages as this provides a draining action on the skin.
The application of the anti-aging cream
The importance for an anti-aging cream is that it is applied as much on the face as on the neck and décolleté. Indeed, although we tend to forget them, the neck and décolleté also experience the signs of aging and these areas should therefore receive the same attention as the face for anti-aging care.
When should you start applying anti-aging cream?
Even if wrinkles do not necessarily appear when you are young, preventive measures begin much earlier. The use of an anti-aging cream can begin as early as the age of 25.
However, we can already start taking precautions at the age of 20 to prevent the appearance of wrinkles. Thus, it is necessary to take care of your skin by removing make-up and moisturize it regularly. It is also recommended to carry out a regular exfoliation to remove the dead skin and to release the pores.
Finally, it is essential to protect your skin from the sun by using anti-UV (UVA and UVB) protection because it is the main factor of premature aging of the skin.
Anti-aging: natural solutions for younger skin
At a time when looking young is essential, the cosmetic sector offers many products designed to rejuvenate our skin. However, all these anti-aging skin care products sometimes lack this "natural" aspect.
Fortunately, there are effective and natural solutions to keep your skin looking young and beautiful.
Health, even that of our skin, starts with a healthy lifestyle. A balanced diet can reduce wrinkles and improve skin quality.
Here are some tips for a young, healthy and happy skin.
Stop alcohol and tobacco: Alcohol and tobacco consumption disrupts blood circulation, dulls the complexion and makes the skin greasier.
Drink at least 1.5l of water a day: water helps to renew skin cells.
Eat foods rich in omega 3 and 9: these are rich in natural anti-inflammatories and can prevent certain skin diseases.
Eat products rich in vitamins: Vitamins A, C and E are antioxidants that eliminate free radicals responsible for premature aging and loss of skin tone. Vitamins K and E play a role in maintaining the elasticity of the epidermis.
Practice a regular physical activity: sport stimulates blood circulation, eliminates toxins and tones the epidermal tissues. It also reduces stress, which is a factor in cellular aging.
Get enough sleep: a restorative sleep or "beauty sleep" is known to have a beneficial effect on our body and skin. It is during the night that our cells regenerate best to prevent premature skin aging.
Protect yourself from the sun's rays: UVA rays are dangerous for the skin because they are the most common signs of aging. Brown spots, sagging skin and aging can therefore be prevented by applying sunscreen.
