Which to choose: anti-wrinkle or anti-aging skin care?!
It’s inevitable that, one day, standing in front of the mirror, it becomes clear it’s time to adapt your skin care routine to counter the signs of aging. That’s the moment when women jump into the wonderful world of anti-wrinkle and/or anti-aging products – but without really knowing where to start. There are so many different choices, the terminology varies, and each product offers its own unique benefits.
What if we started with the very basics?
Which type of product should you choose: anti-wrinkle or anti-aging?
Anti-wrinkle skin care, as the name suggests, specifically targets wrinkles and fine lines. These products usually contain hyaluronic acid, which retains water and fills the grooves of fine lines and wrinkles with fruit acids. This stimulates the production of collagen or retinol, promoting cell regeneration.
Since anti-wrinkle products can target very specific areas, the recommendation is to use them right when fine lines first appear.
Meanwhile, anti-aging skin care has a more global effect on skin. These products zone in on hydration, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, complexion, sagging, etc. A key consideration: anti-aging treatments usually contain antioxidants, which are essential for healthy skin. (We talked about the benefits of antioxidants in a previous article.)
Since anti-aging products are preventative, it is possible to start integrating them into a treatment routine at around 25 years old.
It’s most important to know how to select the right product for your skin type.
