More often than not, when we hear phrases like “skincare regimen” or “skincare routine” it’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed. With an abundance of products available, it can be difficult trying to find a product that will suit you, and when you add “anti-ageing” to the mix, it only confuses you more! For those of us who are nearing the golden years, we begin to wonder “when should you start using anti-ageing products?”; is it still too early, or worse are we too late?! Keep reading to find out about what happens to our skin as we age and the products, we can use to combat it.
What Happens To The Skin As We Age?
Gradual changes happen to the skin as we get older– that’s inevitable. There are changes beneath the surface of the skin as the collagen and the elastic fibres of our skin begin to degrade and wear off, causing the skin to droop a little and wrinkle. Also, as we age, our skin becomes thinner, giving it a papery look to it which increases the visibility of blood vessels.
How Do Anti-Ageing Products Help?
Anti-ageing products can help the skin in many ways, from preventing the formation of wrinkles, reducing dark spots and even tightening the skin; anti-ageing creams and serums can truly work wonders, especially if you start them relatively early. It is recommended to start using anti-ageing products between your 20s and 30s, but the golden rule is to start using sunscreen as early as 20 because this can aid in the prevention of ageing skin from an early age.
What Products To Use ?
At Spa Ceylon, we believe that a natural anti-ageing skincare routine is the best. However, please keep in mind that everyone has a different skin type and they must use products suited for them. With that in mind, for the best anti-ageing skincare routine the way in which you layer your products can significantly affect the effectiveness of your regime. Before you apply any products on your skin you must first cleanse your skin, after that the products change depending on the time of day.
For the morning: cleanser, toner, moisturiser, and then sunscreen.
For the evening: cleanser, exfoliator, toner, and moisturiser.

Suncare Moisture Care Anti-Age Face Cream SPF +50
Sunscreen is perhaps the easiest and most effective anti-ageing product to use. UV rays from the sun are very harsh on the skin and can accelerate ageing. Spa Ceylon’s Suncare Moisture Care Anti-Age Face Cream is a lightweight easy absorbent cream which is best applied over your moisturiser.
White Rice Nourishing All Day Protector
The best moisturiser for ageing skin should moisturise, hydrate and protect the skin, and this is exactly what our White Rice Nourishing All Day Protector does. The rice bran oil contains gamma oryzanol which gives the skin a youthful look, while the green tea and bearberry reduces skin cells from darkening. This moisturiser will keep your skin hydrated throughout the day and the mattifying finish won’t make your face look oily or shiny.
