Did you know that the anti-aging market is worth around $42 billion, and it’s expected to increase to $60 million by 2027?
Whether your grievance is fine lines or crow’s feet, there’s a product that promises a cure. The anti-aging industry has even progressed to helping with preventative treatments to ensure signs of aging never develop (within reason, of course).
But with so many anti-aging products available, how do you choose the best one? Selecting a great product goes beyond which brand has your favorite packaging. The best way to choose a product is based on formulation and company morals.
Read on to find out more.
Choose a Responsible Company
First, choose a company that works for you. This goes beyond looking at reviews. Check whether they have natural anti-aging products that won’t harm your skin, whether they use organic or local ingredients, and their rationales for why theirs are the best anti-aging products.
All responsible companies will be able to tell you where they source their ingredients and provide a certificate of analysis to prove the composition of their product.
Additionally, check whether they test on animals; this is no longer necessary in the cosmetics market.
Shop for Your Skin Type
Next, don’t forget that your skin is unique, so a one size fits all approach to skincare isn’t appropriate. Different products will give you the best results depending on whether you have dry, oily, hybrid, or acne-prone skin.
To find the top anti-aging products for your skin type, you should consult a registered esthetician for personalized advice.
However, look out for these key ingredients that are included in the top anti-aging products:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin A
- Alpha-lipoic acid
- Glycolic acid
- Hyaluronic acid
You only want one main active ingredient in a serum, so make sure not to buy a product that has each of these listed as their main ingredients.
Prioritize Your Skincare Routine
Finally, don’t forget the importance of consistency. There’s no point covering yourself in anti-aging products if you treat your skin poorly the rest of the time. Make sure to prioritize a skincare routine that includes washing, cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and adding anti-aging products.
And, don’t forget that the very best thing you can do for your skin is improve your lifestyle. If you smoke, try to quit. Stay hydrated every day, and eat a healthy and balanced diet to nurture your skin.
