Fine lines and wrinkles are the bane of our existence. As we get older, they start to become more and more obvious. They can also cause us to look older than we really are, particularly when we are still young at heart!
Is there an overnight fix for fine lines? Not really, and even botox only masks the problem for a little while. However, a great skincare routine that focuses on hydration and uses targeted products can really help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Personally I believe that it is never too early to start using anti-ageing products, and I prefer to think of them as age prevention products. The earlier your start the better your skin will be! In your twenties you might want to focus more on keeping your skin hydrated, and in your thirties and forties it might be time to start using one or two more targeted products. It really depends on your skin, and the changes you have noticed. And everyone should be wearing sunscreen!
Avene Eluage Gel
Avene has been a bellabox favourite for a long time, and we sampled the Eluage Gel in the August box. This concentrated gel can be used to minimise the appearance of deep wrinkles, lines and furrows. It is great for those with more advanced signs of ageing. Eluage Gel is based on a patented combination of Retinaldehyde and H.A.F. (Exclusive Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid), which are fantastic anti-ageing ingredients. This is a targeted treatment, so just dab a small amount into areas like crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles after cleansing. See avene.com.au for stockists.
Indio Renew Cream
Want to start getting into anti-ageing skincare? Exfoliate, soften and soothe fine lines with Indio’s Renew Cream! This Australian product is designed to address skin density degeneration. It is based around a combination of polypeptides which signal for collagen production, and AHA’s which help to aid cell turnover. This product contains potent ingredients such as Indian Lotus & Hibiscus Extract, Glycolic and Vitamin B3. See indio-skincare.com for stockists.
Intersted in trying something really different? The Foreo Luna is a skin cleansing tool which has an anti-ageing mode. If that sounds a little crazy, bear with me. Basically, many of our wrinkles and lines are caused by squinting, constantly raising our eyebrows or holding our faces in certain ways. These repeated movements result in your skin starting to settle into lines and wrinkles. The idea behind the Foreo Luna’s anti-ageing mode is to relax these areas, and prevent those lines from forming. You hold the Foreo in specific areas of your face, and it vibrates and gives the region a little massage. You can buy it now in the bellabox store!
Alpha-H Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum
Need to give your skin some overnight love? The Alpha-H Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum is the perfect choice. This water-based serum combines the latest Peptide formula and 14% Glycolic Extract to radically reinvigorate collagen production; Vitamin A to accelerate cell turnover, and encapsulated Vitamin E to repair lipid damage and restore comfort, suppleness and flexibility. You can buy it now in the bellabox store!
