When do I need to start using an anti-wrinkle cream?

It’s always being glamourised on TV commercials showing celebrities and older ladies with airbrushed and smoothed out wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle creams are always being shoved in our faces by media, but when do we actually need to use them??

When to use an anti-wrinkle cream

Always start with a good skin care routine and my staple base that I always preach about; hydration and a balanced diet! Combine that with a great cleansing routine and then we can get down to business, otherwise you’ll be expecting miracles when it won’t happen!

I’ve read mixed reviews about sleeping in your make up and not cleansing properly. Some say it doesn’t affect your skin, other say it dramatically ages it. But either way, removing any impurities from your face will allow any anti-wrinkle treatment, or even serum and moisturiser to sink in and really work. So make it your mission to find the right cleansing routine to suit your skin and remove all traces of your make up.

Prevention is key

Ask any skin care expert and they will always recommend a sun screen, or product with SPF. The UV rays found all year round are one of the main factors of skin ageing. So using an SPF moisturiser on your face every morning is a must, even if you feel like your skin has enough moisture or is too oily. There’s a great range available for all types of skin! The SPF reduces the effects of UV rays and the moisturiser keeps your skin hydrated and plump!

I’ve noticed a wrinkle! What do I do?

Don’t panic. Yes, it may be unfortunate that you will not be able to erase it now you have it. But it isn’t the end of the world either. We start to lose our skin elasticity at the age of around 21, some people as young as 18 or if you’re lucky 24 will start to notice a reduction in firmness. This is what causes wrinkles. The most common places are around your eye area, where the skin is most delicate; your mouth too, and forehead. So, what do you do? Let’s back track a little and return back to basics. You’ve been using your SPF moisturiser religiously and possibly even wearing sunglasses and a hat whenever you can, but the eye wrinkles are still there! Have you considered an eye cream? This is specifically targeted for that area and may even come with cooling application tools to reduce puffiness.

So you’re telling me I don’t need anti-wrinkle cream until it’s too late?

Basically, yes. Your body can’t tell you what is wrong with it, it shows you. You don’t need collagen and retinol when your body is already producing enough of it. But if you have the funds to use expensive anti-wrinkle creams, then go for it. It’s a process that you will need to upkeep for as long as you want to keep the wrinkles away for, so by stopping it or having an un-regular use of it will make it less effective. And let’s face it, there’s always fillers and Botox if you’re really unhappy and want instant results. I wouldn’t always turn cosmetic surgery, but you need to do your own extensive research as to where to spend your money if you want immediate results.
