I was doing a little makeup shopping with a friend recently and realized that we’ve suddenly become conscious of preventing wrinkles. Sounds a little crazy since we’re in our mid-twenties, right? But I find that “decreasing the appearance of fine lines” is now a key characteristic of the makeup and products I buy. I see nothing wrong with a little prevention in my twenties and I try to choose products with simple ingredients to help keep aging at bay. Of course, the tried and true daily SPF is a must have, but here are a few easy products, free of harsh wrinkle-fighting ingredients, which can be used on younger skin for a little prevention.
1. Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder
This product is your morning cup of OJ amplified. It’s 99% Vitamin C, a strong antioxidant to prevent premature aging, fight off environmental damage and improve the overall texture of your skin. The powder simply mixes in with your daily moisturizer. Easy.
2. Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer
I clearly like the idea of combining wrinkle-fighting ingredients with daily moisturizers….No need for extra steps in your morning routine. I need products that do doubly-duty and this moisturizer does just that. It boosts the production of collagen and elastin while it hydrates to give your skin a little plump.
3. Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel
The skin around our eyes is the most sensitive and is usually among the first to show the signs of aging. Love that this product is all natural. It’s packed with cucumber, flower and fruit extracts to tighten, energize and revitalize the sensitive skin around the eyes fighting off the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
