What is Global Anti Ageing?

After your 20s, your skin is no longer as plump, smooth, and radiant as it once was and once you enter your 30s, you probably start looking up a dozen different things to address your anti-ageing concerns. From anti-ageing skincare products to products for mature skin, the skincare industry is inundated with ingredients and products and it seems like there is a new term thrown at you every other day. One such anti-ageing skincare term you might have come across on your quest for younger-looking skin is global anti-ageing. What exactly is global anti-ageing? Will it help you get youthful skin at 40? Read on and take a look at the specificities of global anti-ageing skincare, often confused with its sister, anti-wrinkle skincare, and how important it is at all ages.

• Anti-ageing, anti-wrinkle, global anti-ageing, isn’t it all the same?
Though they all sound like different words to address the same anti-ageing concerns, anti-ageing or global anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle are not the same thing. The first difference between them is their aim. Anti-ageing and global anti-ageing skincare products act on all signs of skin ageing, such as age spots and dark marks, fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity and volume, dullness, and dryness. On the other hand, anti-wrinkle skincare products just focus on fine lines and wrinkles, which is only one type of the various signs of ageing.

• So what exactly entails global anti-ageing?
Unlike anti-wrinkle skincare, which is used when wrinkles are setting in or are already established, mostly in the eye contour area, global anti-ageing skin care is preventative and takes care of the whole face. It is therefore chock-full of antioxidants and has great moisturizing properties. This winning combination ensures that the skin has the right amount of moisture for its cells to work properly and helps skin to fight against oxidative stress caused by the sun and pollution, to renew its cells, and to produce collagen and elastin.

For example, the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5 % Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a lightweight and non-sticky serum, that helps get instant visible results and see your skin getting better day after day! This hyaluronic acid serum penetrates deep into the skin and instantly hydrates your skin! With regular use, it increase your radiance by upto 42%*! After applying the serum, you can apply a day cream like the, L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Moisturizing Day Cream with SPF 35 PA++ that not only addresses your anti-ageing concerns, but also provides UV protection and shields your skin from the damaging sun rays. The moisturizing day cream instantly boosts the skin texture for a smoother, brighter, and youthful look. Created with Dermalift Technology and enriched with Pro Retinol A and Centella Asiatica, the Revitalift Moisturizing Day Cream re-firms, restores, and re-plumps the skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and boosts skin radiance. Global anti-ageing in its true sense!

Another key characteristic of a global anti-ageing skincare product is its anti-inflammatory properties. As skin ageing is 80% caused by inflammation, some anti-ageing products also contain anti-inflammatory ingredients to further protect and soothe your skin.

• What are some of the must-have global skincare products at different ages?
Whether you are 25, 30, 40, 50 or beyond, global anti-ageing should be of utmost importance in your daily morning and night time skin routines. But, of course, for it to be as effective as possible, you need to choose the right product for your age, skin type, and concern.

At 25, for example, choose an anti-ageing skincare product that prevents or delays the first signs of ageing. At 30, try a more “targeted” anti-ageing product that acts on fine lines, wrinkles, and expression lines. Your skin also starts to experience loss of moisture when you enter your 30s, so look for creams that hydrate and nourish your skin. For example, the Revitalift Moisturizing Night Cream by L’Oréal Paris hydrates your skin and boosts the cell regeneration process overnight so you want up to skin that is radiant, plump, and fresh. The Revitalift Night Cream is also enriched with anti-ageing elements that reduce fine lines and wrinkles and boost skin firmness and youthfulness.

At 40, go for anti-wrinkle skincare that targets established wrinkles and anti-ageing products that prevent loss of elasticity. Your 40s are when wrinkles are deep set and make a permanent mark on your face. But with the right skincare products, you can keep these unsightly lines at bay and keep your soft and youthful skin.
