Check out these anti-ageing skincare trends and see what we think of them!
In 2012, just under 800 million people were aged 60 or over. By 2050, that figure will have grown to an eye-watering two billion. As we live longer and the population swells, more and more of us are looking for high-quality skincare regimes and techniques that help us hold onto our youthful looks and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.
It’s little wonder, then, that the anti-ageing skincare market is booming. Consumers are both looking for curative treatments that halt, heal, reverse and rectify the signs of ageing, and preventative treatments, which protect and preserve the skin. As a result, there are dozens of weird and wonderful skincare trends that are growing in popularity. We’ve rounded up six of the best for you to try out below. Be sure to get in touch and let us know what you think!
Skincare trends: Anti-pollution skincare
If you live in a metropolitan area, the chances are that your skin is suffering. Beauty brands are now producing cleansers, toners, and moisturisers that were specifically formulated to fight back against harmful chemicals and elements that not only pollute the air but our skin.
From dirt to dust and soot particles, living in a city can wreak havoc on your skin, causing you to suffer from dryness, breakouts, and premature ageing. Shop around for products that are “supercharged” with antioxidants which can help to fight against free radicals, which will help to slow down the signs of ageing. We’ve put together a guide to anti-pollution skincare.
Age spot correctors
Do you suffer from sunspots or age spots? As we age, these spots grow in size and become more visible, making us look older than we are. Correctors are designed to brighten and exfoliate your skin, reducing the appearance of age spots and dark spots. Many of the products on the markets are infused with antioxidants like Vitamin C and azelaic acid, which counteract the free radical damage and help you to restore your skin to its former glory.
Granted, they won’t remove these spots entirely, but they reduce their appearance over time.
Shop around and look for products that can promote skin turnover. This is the key to “tricking” your body into revealing more youthful-looking skin without going under the knife.
Oralift anti-ageing device
Cosmetic surgery is not only prohibitively expensive for some, but it’s also dangerous and can result in permanent damage to your face and overall health. An increasing number of women are shunning cosmetic procedures in favour of more natural alternatives such as the Oralift anti-ageing device. Our groundbreaking facial rejuvenation technique is sold around the world and is particularly popular in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Korea.
The mouthguard-like device is designed to be worn for short periods of time over several months. Over time, your teeth will separate by a much greater distance than their original freeway space, which helps to create a new resting length and freeway space. The process requires greater protein activity, meaning that capillaries which have been damaged due to ageing are repaired. This repair process triggers the body’s natural healing and rejuvenation process which, with ongoing use, helps to slow down and reverse the ageing of the face.
One trend that’s exploded in recent years is sleep creams. Designed for women who are looking to hold onto their youthful looks or “turn back the clock,” there are several brands that offer overnight creams and masks that can smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and hydrate the skin. Some creams also promise to brighten and lighten the skin, reducing signs of ageing.
The truth is that these creams can only do so much, so don’t expect to wake up looking like Keira Knightley after a couple of applications. But when used religiously, you should notice a subtle improvement in the appearance of your skin on a morning. Though remember that getting a good night’s sleep will work more miracles than an expensive branded face cream.
Asian anti-ageing skincare
Asian skincare brands – particularly those from Korea – are making their way to the West, offering a more natural alternative to some of the chemical-ridden creams we’re used to. K-beauty brands offer everything from acne-clearing solutions to soothing sheet masks designed to hydrate and refresh your skin. One product – known as the Private Doctor Minus Serum – contains microscopic needles which helps the formula absorb into your skin. The cream can sculpt and contour your face, jaw, and neckline – all without the need for surgery.
What’s particularly interesting about K-beauty is that women in Korea begin thinking about ageing at a young age, and use preventative measures to hold onto their youthful looks. We have put together a guide to Korean anti-ageing techniques that you should consider trying.
Anti-ageing body creams
It’s not just your face that shows visible signs of ageing. Your neck, hands, and legs can all be weathered as you get older. But luckily, there are now body creams designed to fight the most common signs. When you’re applying a body lotion, be generous. You don’t need the whole bottle, but you shouldn’t scrimp on product. You should also be sure to apply it to your whole body – from your neck down to your legs and toes. Finally, you should choose a lotion that’s moisturising – look out for the nutrients, vitamins and ingredients that will keep your skin hydrated for a while. It’s even better if you can choose products with natural ingredients.
Remember that the skin can look older and more wrinkled when it’s dry, so choosing creams that are moisture-enhancing is the key to reduce their appearance. Opt for an anti-ageing cream that’s packed with antioxidants can also help to repair free radicals created from the sun. Peptide ingredients should also be considered, as they support collagen production.
