TIP TUESDAY: Anti-Aging Products For Every Skin Type


Skin care is not a one-size-fits-all thing, and what works for some doesn’t work for all. Hopefully these products will keep you looking fresh that you don’t need to have so much Botox to the point where your face can't move. Here are the best anti-aging products to use based on your skin type.

Dry


Dry skin is most likely due to the lack of oil in your skin. You have the least amount of elasticity, so when you make any facial movements — your face is likely to crease and stay that way forever. To prevent aging and wrinkles you need to load up on moisturizing your Sahara Desert face so that you preserve that elasticity and movement. Try something heavily moisturizing, like Dermalogica's Super Rich Repair. It will revitalize your skin and smooth out your cracked, peeling face; uneven tone; and any fine lines you already have.

Oily

Oily skin is the least likely to age because your facial fluids keep your skin from overly stretching out. You still need anti-aging products, but since you don’t need to add MORE oil you'll need something that won’t dry out (or your face will produce more oil), won’t trigger acne, and will keep those wrinkles from ever coming. The secret to wrinkle prevention with oily skin is constantly shedding skin buildup by using a retinol cream like Dermalogica's Overnight Retinol Repair. This keeps your oils evenly distributed so you get optimal skin flexibility, and it prevents acne. If you have health insurance, it’ll be cheaper to get a prescription-grade retinol cream from a Dermatologist.

Don't want to use a retinol? Exfoliation with Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant is the next best step. This exfoliator gently eliminates impurities and detoxifies pores, leaving complexions looking brighter, smoother, and younger.

Combination


If you have combination skin, it means you’re oily in some places and dry in others. Unfortunately for you, this means you may have to use different products for different parts of your face. Combo skin usually means you’re oily in the t-zone (forehead, nose, chin, and cheeks) so for these spots, especially if you have acne, use a retinol cream (or exfoliant) to keep that oil distributed.



It also means that really delicate skin areas (eyes and lips) are dry and these are the worst spots for wrinkles to pop up. Get a heavy eye cream, like Dermalogica's Age Reversal Eye Complex, to moisture those areas.

For your lips, Dermalogica's Renewal Lip Complex is the best! 

Sensitive
If you're prone to dryness, you'll need something that will keep you from getting wrinkles, but also mild enough that it doesn’t cause your skin to break out in a rash, peel, or otherwise ruin your life. Your safest bet for minimal irritation is to use a serum like Dermalogica's Ultracalming Serum Concentrate. It calms redness, burning, and itching that is really prevalent in sensitive skin, while smoothing out lines and rough patches. 

Normal


People who have pH-balanced skin that isn’t dry, isn’t oily, isn’t sensitive, and doesn’t have acne, pores, or imperfections have normal skin. You will, however, still need to use an anti-aging moisturizer that won’t make your skin too oily or it'll dry it out. The secret for you is to keep your normal oil levels steady as you get older with Dynamic Skin Recovery (w/ SPF 50) from Dermalogica

It's ALSO vital to apply SPF on your hands, ears, lips and neck! Seriously, the biggest giveaway to someone being old is their hand skin. No one thinks to protect them from the sun until it’s too late. I assist in surgery everyday at work and no one ever thought about applying sunscreen to those areas.
