Featuring Michelle, aka Lab Muffin
As my skin has matured, the biggest change is my skin has gotten more dehydration-prone and sensitive. My skin gets drier during the day and fine lines get more obvious. I've been very diligent with daily sunscreen, so I haven't really seen much change in terms of pigmentation, if anything it's faded.
If you aren't already wearing sunscreen daily, you really should! UV damage is the main cause of aging skin.
My favourite anti-aging ingredients are the newer photo-stable sunscreens like Tinosorb S, alpha hydroxy acids and vitamin C. I've also been using more hydrating toners to hide fine lines.
Expensive products aren't necessarily better, and if you can, talk to a doctor about tretinoin (a vitamin A derivative that's the gold standard for anti-aging). It’s the ingredient with the most evidence behind its anti-aging effects.
Hydration is also a quick and easy way to soften wrinkles.
But, don't stress too much about wrinkles - a lot of them only you can see! I also like to think that wrinkles are evidence that you'd lived a good life. Grab a good cream with lots of moisturising ingredients and a little sparkle, and the difference will be huge.
