The beauty rules for your skin keep changing; you cannot use the same skincare products you used in your 20’s through your 30’s. Collagen is what keeps your skin firm, plump and youthful and as you age the collagen production slows down. External stressors such as pollution, UV rays, smoke and other factors wreak havoc and produce free radicals in your skin. Therefore just like eating right and exercising is important, protecting your skin’s collagen from an early age is essential too.
Use products that contain antioxidants
Environmental stressors can cause wrinkles, dullness and sagging skin, topically applied antioxidants have the ability to halt these effects. Antioxidant rich skincare products stimulate collagen as well as protect it. Vitamin C and E are two antioxidants stimulators that you should look for while choosing skincare products. The Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Crème evens skin tone and protects it from the harmful effects of the environment. Certain antioxidants also have calming effects on the skin and visibly soothe skin redness.
Never skip a sunscreen
Use an effective sun protection formula on a daily basis to avoid sun damage. Whether you work indoors or have to step out in the sun constantly, using a broad spectrum sunscreen is an absolute must. The UV rays of the sun can accelerate aging therefore apply a broad spectrum formula such as the Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Gel Sunscreen to stay protected all around the year.
Do not underestimate a night cream
Your skin has self-healing properties which it does at night, when your body is relaxed. Applying a night cream only accelerates this process, helping your skin repair faster as well as prevents certain skin issues. The Lakme Youth Infinity Skin Sculpting Night Crème contains insta collagen boosters that improve skin elasticity and the overall texture with regular use.
