Your Top 11 Anti-Aging Questions Answered article image by Mayerling Skincare

Aeging is a natural process that every person will have to go through. When we’re younger, we don’t really think about it that much, almost as if thinking our body would magically maintain its youthful vibrance and energy. 

However, there comes a point in many of our lives when we start paying attention to the words “anti-ageing” when it comes to skincare and come up with questions about turning back time, the credibility of such as fountain of youth, or, well, at least, ageing gracefully. 

Sounds a little bit like you? Well, worry not! Many skin ageing concerns can actually be prevented and we’re here to help! Below we’ve answered the top anti-ageing questions women around the world regularly ask and sprinkled our best anti-ageing tips, so read on to find out more.

1. What causes skin ageing?

Getting older is inevitable. As time goes on, our skin naturally loses its suppleness and elasticity. But certain factors can accelerate this process. Sun exposure and bad lifestyle choices like an unhealthy diet, smoking, drinking, and stress can contribute to premature ageing. 

2. What are the signs of ageing I should look out for? 

The ageing process looks different for everyone, but the most common signs are: sun spots, fine lines, crow’s feet, dryness, dullness and sagging. 

3. How can I prevent skin ageing? 

While we can’t stop time, it’s possible to delay skin ageing and age beautifully by using sun protection, like Mayerling’s Sunscreen SPF 30+ Lotion, every day. It also helps to have a healthy lifestyle and a good skincare routine.

4. Which vitamins are important for the skin? 

Vitamins, as with our general health, play a huge role in our skin’s metabolism. The ADEC Vitamin Facial Moisturizer​ is a great addition to your skincare routine as this provides a full range of antioxidant vitamins A, D, E and C that protect the skin from free radicals and keep it nourished. 

5. When should I start using anti-ageing​products? 

Studies show that signs of ageing already start showing in your mid-20’s. Especially if you lived your young adult life soaking up the sun, doing sports, drinking alcohol, smoking, and pulling all nighters. The effects of these may appear on your skin fast. So we definitely recommend starting early. 

6. How can I use anti-ageing products? 

Anti-aging products come in different forms, like cleansers, serums, and moisturizers. Mayerling’s Forte Day and Night Face Creams​ are a great duo that not only brightens and hydrates the skin but tightens it and reduces fine lines and hyperpigmentation also. 

7. Is eye cream really important? 

Yes! The skin around the eyes is the thinnest and most delicate on your face, so signs of ageing are first visible here. Eye creams, like Mayerling’s Eye Cream, are specially formulated to target skin ageing concerns like wrinkles, dryness and dullness.

8. How does serum work? 

Serum is made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and bring a very high concentration of active ingredients. Regularly using a serum can give your skin a firmer, smoother texture, make pores appear smaller and increase moisture levels. The Dermal Transfer Serum Vitamin C ​is the perfect anti-ageing ​serum as this instantly brightens, hydrates and firms the skin while combating fine lines and hyperpigmentation.

9. Is moisturizer necessary? 

Definitely! Moisturizing your skin is vital in preventing breakouts and reducing the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness. Breakouts and acne can appear when your skin is too dry so make it a point to use facial moisturizers.

10. What Are the Most Important Parts of a Skincare Routine?

With so many skincare products out there that seemingly add up to more steps in your daily routine, it’s normal to feel confused. To narrow it down, the three most important steps in your skincare regimen are proper cleansing, sun protection, and moisturizer. But of course, other steps or products like serum, regular exfoliating, or face mask could make a huge difference in delaying aeging.

11. How soon will I see the effects of anti-ageing ​products? 

Results don’t happen overnight. For your anti-ageing products to work, it requires consistency. Make it a habit to regularly apply, consider switching up your lifestyle, give it four to six weeks and you should be able to see improvements.
