BEAUTY | How To Select Anti-Aging Skin Care Products

Dermatologist Share Their Insider Tips

Shopping for an anti-aging skin care product can feel like a hit-or-miss experience. With so many choices, it can be difficult to know which products to choose. These dermatologist tips can help you shop with confidence.

  1. Start with sunscreen and moisturizer. Dermatologists agree that sunscreen and moisturizer are the two most-effective anti-aging products you can buy. Using these every day can make a noticeable difference.

When shopping for sunscreen, select one that offers all of the following:

  • Broad spectrum
  • SPF 30 (or higher)
  • Water resistance

An anti-aging moisturizer helps to minimize fine lines. It is so effective that moisturizer is the secret  ingredient in many anti-aging products.

Using a moisturizer with sunscreen is fine. Just be sure that the product offers broad-spectrum coverage and an SPF of 30 or higher.

If you will spend time outdoors during the day, you should apply a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection, SPF 30 (or higher), and water resistance. Be sure to reapply your sunscreen every two hours while outdoors.

  • Treat #1 aging- skin concern. Give sunscreen and moisturizer a few weeks to work. Then look at your skin. Is there still a sign of aging that bothers you?

By focusing on one concern, such as wrinkles or dark spots, you’ll get the best results. Look for a product that targets your concern. There are two reasons for this:

  • No products can treat all signs of skin aging.
  • Using more than one anti-aging product in a few days or weeks can irritate the skin, making you look older.
  • Buy a product formulated for your skin type. Your sunscreen, moisturizer, and other anti-aging skin care product will work best if they are formulated for your skin type. For example, if your skin tends to be oily, select a moisturizer made for oily skin. If you have sensitive skin, you want to see the words “sensitive skin” on the label.

This is important because no one product works for everyone.

  • Read product labels and select a product that offers all of the following:
    • Hypoallergenic (The product can still cause an allergic reaction, but there is less risk)
    • Non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic (does not cause acne)
    • Consumer hotline (to contact for questions)
  • Have  a realistic expectations. Exaggerates promises, such as look 10 years younger overnight or quickly reduces all signs of aging, are too good to be true. It’s important to remember that anti-aging skin care products deliver modest results. You cannot get the results of a facelift from a cream.
  • Select a product within your price range. It’s human nature to think the more expensive the product, the better the results. Effective anti-aging products come in all price ranges.

MAXIMIZE THE RESULTS YOU SEE

Once you’ve selected a product, you can maximize its effectiveness by following tips that dermatologists share within their patients.
