Have you ever realized that the way you use your anti-aging products can affect your skin? You can't just apply them all. There are a few unwritten guidelines that you should adapt to get the most out of your anti-aging skin care products. After all, you only want what’s perfect for your skin, right?

Stopping the time and reverse aging is something that no power can accomplish, but you can deceive the mirrors and cameras into believing that you are a younger you. Here we have some tips that maximize the anti-aging products’ performance.

1.    Start With A Single Brand: Using different brands can irritate your skin. Especially, if you apply more than one anti-aging products. An irritated skin makes signs of aging more visible. Stick to one brand at a time.

2.    Test Before Applying On Your Face: You might have seen ‘hypoallergenic’ written on a few products. They are unlikely to cause an allergic reaction on the skin. Still, be sure to test the product before applying on your skin. Depending upon your skin type, different products concern your skin differently. To test the product, apply some amount of product on your forearm twice a day, for 3 to 4 days. If you don’t feel any reaction such as redness or itchiness, it is likely safe to apply on your face. Avoid using products that irritate your skin.

3.    Use The Product As Per The Directions: It is recommended that you read the instructions before using any skincare product. Some products may include active ingredients that can result in clogged pores. In addition to clogging of pores, they can also cause dehydration of your skin, acne, blotchy complexion or other unwanted effects. So make sure that you use the products as directed.

4.    Keep Your Skin Moisturized: As we age, our skin starts getting drier. One of the biggest reasons for dry skin and wrinkles is dehydration. Luckily, there is a quick and easy way to fix it- “moisturize”! Applying moisturizer daily traps the water in your skin and provides you a more youthful appearance. Along with moisturizing your face, you should also pay attention to your neck, hands, and feet, and balm your lips. These parts also show signs of aging. 

5.    Let The Product Work: Moisturizer may cover up fine lines immediately, but that might not be the case with other products. Most of the products need time to show their outcome. This may take up to 3 to 4 weeks. You need to be patient and give the serums some time to work on your skin.

6.    Protect Your Skin From Sun Damage: You may know that UV rays are harmful in many ways. Along with health conditions, it can cause skin problems too. Sun exposure leads to fine lines, wrinkles or age spots. Protect your skin as much as you can. Don’t step out without applying sunscreen, even on cloudy days. Choose SPF concentration depending upon how long you stay exposed to the sun. It will reduce the signs of premature aging and allow your skin to repair. Cover the body parts which can’t be covered with sunscreens such as hands, arms, neck, and chest.

7.    Wash Your Face With Lukewarm Water: You may be washing your face regularly between intervals, but it may not be enough. You should try washing your face with lukewarm water rather than cold. This would help pores and blood vessels in your skin to dilate and help with better absorption of the nutrients. This would, in fact, help repair the skin cells and maintain a healthy balance between good and dead cells.

8.    Don’t Skip Your Skincare Regime: Never ever do that! Be consistent with your skincare routine. It is the only thing that will contribute a lot to healthy and beautiful skin, even after 20 years from now. Your skin needs time and patience to replenish with nourishment to look its best. Show love to your skin by implementing a skincare regime and make sure to follow it daily.

Without any doubt, we know aging is an inescapable phenomenon. But, with the help of anti-aging products, you can slow down the process. And it’s not just the products that can restore your skin health and deceive your age perceived by others. By applying the tricks above, you can maximize the results of your products and expect the best out of them. Even individuals with existing signs of aging can benefit from these tips.

Remember, it’s never too late to care.
