Discover the ideal anti-aging skincare routine to follow from your early adult years to prevent and reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Intensive anti-aging routine for skin rejuvenation

Our skin starts to change as we age, and it’s completely natural for it to begin losing elasticity and developing wrinkles and fine lines. There’s no way, or need, to stop the effect thatgrowing older has on our skin, but the best anti-aging skincare routine forms a solid foundation to improve the appearance of any aging skin concerns.

Getting a head start with your anti-aging skincare routine and incorporating the most important anti-aging ingredients can help to support a more youthful, radiant-looking complexion at every age.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at the best ingredients for anti-aging and the essential steps in the ideal anti-aging routine.

Key ingredients for anti-aging

If you’re wondering how to improve aging skin, then there are a few key ingredients that you should keep an eye out for in your skincare products:

  • Vitamin C: Protects skin from sun damage and free radicals.
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids: Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), like glycolic acid, remove the “cement” that binds dead skin cells and acts as an effective chemical exfoliant.
  • Humectants: Humectants, like polyglumatic and hyaluronic acid, attract moisture to the skin and bind it to the cells. They are powerful skin hydrators.
  • Vitamin E: Naturally found in the skin’s sebum, vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps to create natural barriers that retain skin moisture.

The best anti-aging skincare routine

It’s important to remember that there’s no one-size-fits-all routine for anti-aging skincare, and the products you use will depend on a variety of factors - the most important being age and skin type.

When should you use anti-aging products? Every day! You should start your anti-aging routine in your 20s, but the products used at this age will differ from those you should use in your 50s, so it’s important to know the products best suited to your stage of life.

Always consider your skin type when buying skincare products, as something that is perfect for an oily face could irritate a dry or sensitive skin type and vice versa. Look for products

that have been designed specifically with your skin type in mind.

Having said that, there is a foundational anti-aging skincare routine that you should follow. Simply find the perfect products for your skin and fit them into this routine seamlessly.

Start with a cleanser

Regardless of your skincare concerns, skin type, or age, daily cleansing is non-negotiable. Those in their 20s and early 30s can go for a foaming cleanser; however, maturing skin may need something more nourishing.

Stay away from cleansers that contain specialized ingredients to reduce acne or physically exfoliate the skin, as these will be too harsh for mature skin. fresh’s best-selling Soy pH-balanced Hydrating Face Wash is a gentle yet effective choice for every age group.

Exfoliate once a week

Exfoliating your skin comes with numerous benefits, such as brightening, removing dead skin cells, and more. It’s an essential part of an effective anti-aging routine. While many physical exfoliators have been used in the past, chemical exfoliators such as glycolic acid and other alpha hydroxy acids can be as effective and less irritating for the skin. Add a mask or treatment with alpha hydroxy acids into your routine once a week.

Use antioxidants to prep for other products

Apply a facial treatment essence both morning and night to prep skin for your serum and moisturizer. The Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence is an antioxidant prep step made of kombucha, artemisia flower extract, hyaluronic acid, and an advanced metabiotic. This powerful essence deeply penetrates 20+ surface layers to hydrate and deliver healthy luminosity.

Apply a facial serum

Serums are one of the most important aspects of any skincare routine. They provide a higher concentration of active ingredients than your run-of-the-mill moisturizers, as they have smaller molecules, which allows them to penetrate deeper into the skin.

fresh’s Crème Ancienne White Truffle Face Serum is a silky anti-aging serum expertly crafted with exclusive white truffle extract—verified to be high purity and quality—to visibly rejuvenate skin for smoothed expression lines, redefined facial contours, and enhanced radiance.

Incorporate targeted eye products

You should invest in a targeted eye product, no matter your age. Find an eye cream and eye cream that is specifically formulated for your skin concerns. Anti-aging eye serums and creams address numerous signs of aging, such as under-eye bags, fine lines, and dark circles.

fresh’s Crème Ancienne White Truffle Eye Serum is a potent eye treatment proven to deliver a more defined and lifted eye contour with visibly smoothed crow’s feet and a brighter, awakened appearance. Follow with Crème Ancienne Eye Cream to intensely nourish and reduce the look of wrinkles and puffiness.

Moisturize for your skin type

Find a moisturizer that has been specifically formulated to target signs of aging for your skin type. Some of the highest-quality products will cater to all skin types, however, like Crème Ancienne.

This super restorative moisturizer is handmade in a monastery. It has a luxuriously rich texture that’s suitable for even the most delicate skin. Nourishing meadowfoam seed oil, chamomile wax, vitamin E, and beeswax work together to improve skin stability while smoothing the look of lines and wrinkles.

Apply SPF every day

UV damage is one of the biggest contributors to the early signs of aging, and it’s essential to protect your skin from the sun as early as possible. Make sure that you apply high-quality SPF every day after your skincare routine and before you put on makeup.

Use sleep to your skin’s advantage

Sleep is the ideal opportunity for your skin to refresh and renew itself. You can take advantage of your body’s downtime by applying a wrinkle-fighting night cream or facial mask before you fall asleep.

Explore the fresh range of anti-aging overnight products to find the perfect fit for your skin and age range. With overnight products, you give your skin extra encouragement to visibly reduce the signs of aging.
