Anti-aging

Damage from the sunlight causes 80% of skin aging. The main anti-aging skincare strategy is:

  1. Sun protection - a daily sunscreen that protects both from the UVA & UVB.

  2. Repair existing sun damage. Actives like Retinoids, Vitamin C, Niacinamide and others help with this.

Learn more about anti-aging skincare in our guide here.

Top anti-aging actives

Ingredients to look for in skincare products to help with fine lines & wrinkles, elasticity loss & age spots. You do not need to use all anti-aging actives in your routine. Sunscreen is a must, but then you can include 2-3 other anti-aging actives and get good results. Do not go overboard with your actives: you want to avoid skin irritation (irritation contributes to skin aging and can undo the benefit from the actives).

This is the US version of our simple well-rounded routine. It works for all skin types except very sensitive. It relies on these actives: - Broad spectrum new generation UV filters - Niacinamide 2x daily (4% in the AM & 2% in the PM) - Retinoid (HPR 0.2-0.3% estimated) - Bakuchiol 0.5% estimated - Peptides - Centella Asiatica actives. Note on the moistruizer: the product is marketed for acne-prone skin, but it is excellent moisturizer for any skin type and, beyond supporting skin barrier, has an anti-aging benefit (because of niacinamide). The total routine price tag: $134

This is a simple well-rounded routine. It works for all skin types except very sensitive. It relies on these actives: - Broad spectrum new generation UV filters - Niacinamide 4-6% (estimated) - Retinoid (about 0.3% or HPR & 0.3% or retinol - estimated). The total routine price tag is about €78. Note for the cleanser: We recommend to use it directly onto the skin, without a cotton pad, in a generous amount. Rinse off with tepid water. (The brand instructions tell otherwise). Rinsing will help to remove all residue of the cleansing agents, and skipping the pad will decrease the rubbing (and save a cotton pad 😊).
