Figuring out your skin type is the first and foremost priority before using any anti-aging product. The way your skin naturally reacts in a normal day-to-day lifestyle will help determine how effective certain ingredients will be on your skin. Different skin types will help distinguish which anti-aging product will work to lighten your issues and which products will not effectively alter the skin. Each skin concern will determine the best product to target these issues. It’s important to understand why your skin develops more oils and dry patches, certain products will help ease the issue compared to other.

To achieve a healthy and youthful complexion requires a skincare routine, learn to classify your skin type into Normal, Combination, Oily or Dry to select the right anti-aging products.

Normal Skin

Normal skin type often deal with moderate dryness around the cheeks and oils on the nose. To achieve healthier skin, using an anti-aging serum infused with Vitamin C and Retinol will aid in hydrating benefits as well as lightening pigmentation and age spots caused by excess sun exposure. Regular exfoliation with alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) will prevent fine lines and loss of elasticity and help build collagen. A lightweight, oil-free moisturizer will help the skin balanced and aid in healthy circulation for firmer complexion. This anti-aging method will help maintain a fresh, radiant and youthful skin for years.

Combination Skin

Controlling oil and balancing dry spots requires using gentle products to heal the skin instead of cleansing or stripping away natural oils. It’s necessary to use organic ingredients such as Green Tea and Vitamin E to help rejuvenate and smooth the skin. Oil-absorbing lotions should be using on the general T-zone area while the rest of the face requires creams with argan oil or jojoba oil to hydrate and nourish. Using this method will help relieve any fine lines around the mouth and eyes while minimizing oil production for healthier skin.

Dry Skin

Dry skin requires adequate hydration containing natural and organic ingredients to help retain moisture levels while preventing clogged pores. Potent serums and moisturizers containing antioxidants and natural oils will nourish the skin for a smoother and healthier appearance to minimize fine lines and prevent premature wrinkles. Look for anti-aging products consisting of argan oil, grape seed oil and shea butter to help firm dehydrated skin and improve collagen levels. Facial moisturizers containing lightweight organic oils will penetrate deeper layers of skin without blocking pores.

Oily Skin

Oily skin needs to be frequently cleansed to maintain a shine-free, healthier appearance. Routine cleansing using mild soaps, toners and clay masks will help minimize the appearance of large pores and balance oil production. For extremely oily skin, using the right toner will balance and smooth your skin after cleansing where dirt and oil can get left behind. Look for anti-aging products containing Niacinamide and Alpha Hydroxy Acid to penetrate into deeper skin layers to remove stubborn blackheads and oil build up. Using these steps will help to achieve a radiant, youthful glow to prevent aging.

Whether your skin is too oily or too dry, an anti-aging routine should consist of the right products to help balance the texture of the skin’s surface without causing adverse reaction. These tips are great to help you lead the way towards beautiful, healthy skin.
