When it comes to saving our skin and fighting the signs of aging, there are some things we can control: for example, eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. But there’s one thing that’s seemingly beyond our control, and it also happens to be the number one cause of skin damage and aging: the environment. Exposure to the sun’s damaging rays and pollution can do a number on our skin, and lead to damage like fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and discolouration – that is, if you’re not protected from them.
We all know that sunscreen is one our best defenses in our skincare regimen, but antioxidants, and namely the power antioxidant idebenone, can help prevent and reduce the look of signs of aging caused by environmental assaults. This hero ingredient is a powerful antioxidant and it is the key ingredient in Elizabeth Arden’s PREVAGE® range of skincare products.
The lineup includes everything from serums, to eye cream, day and night creams and lotions, all infused with this potent antioxidant, which has an EPF rating of 95 out of 100. Both immediately and over time, PREVAGE® protects the skin from environmental damage and reduces the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, giving the skin a firmer, fresher look. Here’s how we’re incorporating PREVAGE® into our skincare routine:
Cleanse. Start with the moisture-rich PREVAGE® Anti-aging Treatment Boosting Cleanser, which gently removes makeup, impurities and surface pollution from the skin. It also lightly exfoliates with bamboo microbeads and enzymes, and prepares the skin for treatment products.
Treat. Next, apply the PREVAGE ® Anti-aging Daily Serum, a treatment with idebenone to protect against and combat environmental damage. The serum targets fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, and helps banish dullness and discolouration for more even, smoother and brighter skin.
Protect. Seal in your treatment with PREVAGE® Anti-aging Moisture Cream SPF 30, which replenishes moisture and defends against dryness. Also packed with idebenone, the cream helps even skin tone and correct signs of aging, while UVA and UVB sunscreen filters protect skin from sunburn. Skin is softer, smoother and more radiant as it stays hydrated throughout the day.
Meanwhile, don’t forget about the skin around the eyes; as the skin in this area is the most delicate on the body, give it special care with an eye care product like PREVAGE® Anti-aging Eye Cream SPF 15. This cream intensely hydrates and protects with idebenone to help smooth the look of crow’s feet and wrinkles. Meanwhile, broad spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen protects the skin without irritation.
And while we may be entering the winter months soon (and therefore not exposed to as much sun as in the summer), we’re keeping this regimen going all year long, because you can never be too protected when it comes to aging.
