Anti-Aging Skin Beauty Tips

Level 1: Beginner

A daily moisturizer with sunscreen: “The most inexpensive way to prevent skin aging is to use sunscreen,” says Fort Lauderdale dermatologist Dr. Will Richardson.

A night cream: Hydrated skin is supple skin. So it’s important to replenish the natural oils and water that you lose daily.

An exfoliator: Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and smooths texture.

Level 2: Intermediate

An antioxidant serum: A serum will help prevent and repair environmental damage from sun and pollution that destroys skin cells and collagen.

A retinoid product: Retinoic acid, a vitamin A derivative penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production, causing cell turnover.

A peptide cream or serum: Peptides are short chains of amino acids that form proteins such as collagen.

An eye cream: The skin around the eye has few oil glands to keep it hydrated, so that’s usually where wrinkles appear first.

Level 3: Advanced

Chemical Peels: Best for: Sun damage, brown spots, fine lines, and a dull and leathery texture.

Injectables: Best for: Fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and hollows under the eyes.

Fractionated Lasers: Best for: Fine lines, sagging, sun damage, rough texture, and uneven tone.
