Dry, aging skin may seem like a simple fix. In reality, your skin may need a specialized anti-aging regimen. Layering your skincare products has been found highly-effective in reducing skincare woes like eye wrinkles, dark eye circles, hyperpigmentation, and skin dryness.
Of course, the right products make all the difference. To get the most out of your skincare routine, learn the proper way to layer products.
1. Start with a Cleanser and Toner
Always start your skincare routine with a cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and makeup residue from your skin. Your skincare products will absorb more effectively into freshly cleaned skin. Use a generous amount of cleanser and gently massage it into your skin starting at the hairline. Rinse thoroughly with tepid water and pat dry with a towel. Afterwards, apply a toner that suits your skin type.
2. Nourish with a Serum
Next up is a face serum. A serum acts as a multivitamin for your skin, delivering essential nutrients for younger looking skin. For an all-over facial serum, try Fibroblast Growth Factor Serum. This anti-aging cream boosts skin density, firmness, and texture for skin that looks and feels healthier.
3. Firm Up the Eye Area
As you age, it’s normal for your skin to lose some elasticity. A highly-concentrated anti-wrinkle eye cream like the Elastifirm Eye Serum is an excellent solution. This serum strengthens capillaries and reduces puffy eye bags. If you suffer from dark eye circles, use a targeted product to brighten the eye area, such as Dark Circles No More.
4. Spot Treat Imperfections
Freckles, age spots, liver spots, and other unwanted dark spots on skin can be corrected with the use of a pigmentation treatment. As part of the Dr. Sylvia Advanced Clear Skin Program, the Skin Lightener is a powerful skin lightening cream for pigmentation on face caused by excess melanin. (Rx only)
5. Hydrate with Moisturizer
If you have dry or mature skin, a moisturizer is a must. The choices are plentiful, ranging from light daytime moisturizers to rich night creams. To ensure that you get the right amount of hydration for your skin, choose a moisturizer based on your skin type. Apply in an upward motion to increase circulation and your lymphatic system.
6. Slather on Sunscreen
Sunscreen is the ultimate anti-aging product. Applying a daily sunscreen like the Oil Free Sun Protection SPF 30 helps protect against damaging UV rays and is essential when using serums with active ingredients that make your skin more photosensitive. This sunscreen for sensitive skin contains antioxidants to prevent premature aging.
If you have dry or mature skin, you need a special skincare routine to help replenish lost moisture and nourish aging skin. When layered correctly, anti-aging skincare products have the power to transform skin from dry and dull to healthy and vibrant.
