What is a Complete Photoaging Routine?
Have you heard of a photoaging routine? It is a common type of skin aging that occurs as a result of excessive sun exposure, and it can eventually lead to premature fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and a rough skin texture.
While it may seem impossible to keep up with the effects of aging, there are steps that you can take to help combat photoaging. This can be achieved by following a comprehensive skincare routine.
The components of our comprehensive photoaging routine include:
Shielding Your Skin from UV Ray Damage
The most important aspect of the photoaging routine is protecting your skin from UV ray damage. The sun’s UV rays are the main culprit behind photoaging as they damage the skin and significantly accelerate the overall aging process.
The last step in your morning skincare routine should always be to slather on an SPF sunscreen of at least 30 or higher. It’s important to apply sunscreen to any part of the skin that may be exposed to the sun, particularly the face, neck, ears, and hands.
Repairing Free Radical and Protein Damage
Skincare products with nourishing, damage-reversing ingredients should be the first item on your photoaging routine.
Antioxidant-rich serums can help strengthen your skin’s natural defense against free radical damage as well as promote protein repair. Retinoids are also highly effective in stimulating collagen and elastin production which will help rejuvenate your skin.
Reversing Visible Signs of Aging
In order to most effectively target existing signs of aging, you should use nourishing moisturizers that reduce redness and tighten loose skin. Niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, caffeine, green tea extract, ceramides, glycolic acid, and lactic acid are all good ingredients that will help make a difference.
