WHEN SHOULD YOU START TAKING CARE OF YOUR SKIN?
Published January 9, 2023
It's a well-known fact that our skin changes and evolves throughout our life. Skin aging is a natural biological process. But, there isn't really a specific age to start taking care of your skin. You can reveal your skin's natural beauty at any stage of your life.
Although our cells age naturally, environmental factors, like sun exposure, smoking, pollution, stress or poor diet, can accelerate aging. In fact, these factors contribute to skin aging by causing oxidative stress in cells. Luckily, you can do something about it by adopting the right skincare habits.
STRENGTHEN THE SKIN'S BARRIER FUNCTION
First of all, it is important to hydrate your skin properly with a moisturizer. The more hydrated the skin is, the stronger its barrier function will become, allowing it to play its protective role against outside aggression and water evaporation.
The FILORGA solution: The HYDRA collection, which contains a combination of hyaluronic acids to hydrate and plump the skin.
FIGHT OXIDATIVE STRESS
Providing antioxidants to boost the skin's natural defenses and fight against oxidative stress is essential. Antioxidants are molecules that can trap free radicals, toxic components that trigger oxidative stress in the cell. The cells then become overwhelmed, they regenerate less effectively, the skin loses its radiance, and this is what we call premature skin aging.
The FILORGA solution: The C-RECOVER treatment has a high concentration of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, to give the skin a radiance boost.
STIMULATE THE CELLS
Choose regenerating ingredients to stimulate the cells and boost collagen and elastin synthesis.
The FILORGA solution: NCEF, the Laboratoires FILORGA core formula, contains a unique combination of active ingredients that provide the nutrients the cells need to function properly. The NCEF-REVERSE collection contains NCEF, which works to visibly improve skin quality and reduce the appearance of aging by acting on wrinkles, slackening skin, and uneven skin tone.
PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM UV RAYS
You must always protect your skin from the sun because it can be harmful to your health and lead to skin cancer. What's more, UV rays are one of the major factors in skin aging. They alter the skin structure and cause deep wrinkles and hyperpigmentation spots. Protecting your skin from the sun every day is therefore essential.
The FILORGA solution: Apply daily sun protection such as from our favorite sun care brand, EltaMD, to slow down skin aging.
Although there is no specific age to start incorporating an anti-aging skincare routine, the key word is PREVENTION. The sooner you start to care for your skin, the better off you will be in the long run. So, don’t wait. Start your healthy skin habits today!
