Skincare is something I religiously follow. You may not hear me talk about makeup as much but I am actively speaking about the skincare products I use at all times. You are going to get older and why not age your skin gracefully? Over my 3+ years of skincare experimentation and learning, I have learned that these 3 skincare products will prevent premature aging and keep your skin healthy and glowing. Keep reading below to know what the products are:
1. Vitamin C
Long before I knew about what acids to use or not to use on the face, I just knew that Vitamin C does wonders for the skin. When I got into skincare, I used Vitamin C for over a year before I started adding more acids to my skincare regime. Along with having antioxidant properties, it is amazing for brightening uneven skin tone (or hyperpigmentation to say) and also gives you some UV protection. I always recommend that you apply it in your morning skincare routine.
If you are in your late 20s, you probably might already have retinol in your bathroom closet. Retinol/Retinoid which is also a form of Vitamin A is one of the go-to products for premature aging. It pretty has a bit of everything when it comes to benefits. Whether you are experiencing acne, looking to even skin tone and reverse any signs of aging, then this ingredient should be your go-to. Retinoid vs Retinol can get a bit confusing to explain. And I am going to leave this topic for another day. But for now, here are some of my favorite Retinols:
Last but not least, if you are not applying sunscreen then there is no point in using the other two ingredients mentioned above. Our face is exposed to the sun on a daily basis which is one of the main reasons for premature aging. The sunscreen will prevent your skin from UV rays, can reduce your risk of skin cancer, help you maintain an even skin tone, and as mentioned prevent premature aging.

So everyone, here are top 3 anti-aging products to add in your skincare routine. Are you already using any of these products?
