Signs of Ageing & The Ordinary

What does signs of ageing look and feel like? 

As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin and becomes drier. Ageing skin has wrinkles and folds. It becomes thinner, less elastic and has less volume. There is more pigmentation, and skin tone becomes uneven. You can find lots of information by Deciem all about signs of ageing in the Knowvember campaign.

Which The Ordinary products should I be using for ageing skin? 

  • The Ordinary Mineral UV Filters SPF 30– Sunscreen is the single most effective preventative treatment for ageing, it really is a must.
  • Retinoids. Granactive Retinoid or Retinol can improve all signs of ageing.
  • Vitamin C. Any of the Vitamin C products could improve the signs of ageing, The Ordinary has a great selection, 23% Vitamin C Suspension, 30% Vitamin C in Silicone, 100% Ascorbic Acid Powder.
  • Buffet. Buffet and the other peptides, Matrixyl and Argireline can rebuild lost collagen and help firm the skin.
  • Glycolic Acid Toner. Glycolic acid has good evidence to show that it can improve skin texture and reduce wrinkles

Which products should I avoid?

There are no specific products to avoid if you’re trying to treat ageing. Any product or ingredient that flares up inflammation within your skin should be avoided.
