Advanced Anti-Aging Skin care

Skin aging is caused by two main processes; intrinsic, or chronological (natural), and extrinsic, or environmental (atmospheric), they both contribute to the visible signs you may see on your skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, and discoloration. SkinCeuticals product philosophy of prevent, protect, and correct is designed to shield skin from extrinsic factors causing skin aging, while improving the overall appearance of skin as it ages naturally.

Aging Skin + Anti-Aging Skin Care

Skin aging may be an inevitable process, but understanding how and why it happens can help you manage the signs of skin aging more effectively and help you better select anti-aging solutions to improve skin’s overall health and appearance.

Skin Aging Explained

What is intrinsic or chronological (natural) aging and what are the visible signs?

Intrinsic aging, also known as chronological or natural aging, is largely driven by genetics. The visible signs appear most commonly as dry skin, wrinkles, loss of firmness, and increased pore size. With age, the skin’s oil glands produce less oil and necessary fats, resulting in dehydration, lines, and more vulnerable skin. Simultaneously, skin naturally loses collagen and elastin, causing wrinkles, laxity, and enlarged pores. Furthermore, years of constant facial expressions such as smiling, laughing, frowning, and squinting, also contribute to wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and forehead.

What is extrinsic or environmental (atmospheric) aging and what are the visible signs?

Extrinsic aging or environmental and atmospheric aging is due to external factors like UV, pollution, smoking, sleep deprivation, stress, alcohol consumption, and poor nutrition that ultimately cause skin to prematurely age. While there are many external factors that contribute to skin aging, research has shown UV and pollution to be primary causes. Both of these atmospheric factors create free radicals that “eat away” at skin’s collagen and elastin, and reduce healthy cell turnover, resulting in skin roughness, wrinkling, and sagging. Persistent or constant exposure to the sun’s rays also affects skin’s natural production of melanin causing discoloration, most commonly found on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.

Anti-aging products for a targeted skin care regimen

Regardless of the cause of skin aging, it is never too early to start incorporating anti-aging products into your skin care routine. Prevention and protection are the two essential steps of the best anti-aging skin care regimen. Using a topical vitamin C antioxidant and sunscreen every morning helps prevent and protect skin from direct UV damage as well as damaging free radicals that cause premature skin aging. Anti-aging skin care products can also be incorporated into your routine to help improve the appearance of existing signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, skin discoloration, dehydration, loss of elasticity, and more. For optimal effectiveness, a SkinCeuticals skin care professional can create a customized anti-aging regimen based on your skin’s needs and your goals. To find a professional near you, click here.


What ingredients should I look for when purchasing anti-aging products?

When shopping for anti-aging products, it is best to look for ingredients and formulations that are backed by evidence-based science and clinical studies to support their claims, meaning the claims are made on the final formula and the studies are performed on human subjects vs. in-vitro (cell cultures or reconstructed skin). This helps sift through the hype and ensure that anti-aging benefits have been proven. Many ingredients may have powerful claims or supporters behind them, but it does not mean these ingredients have been proven effective when used on live skin, or even in your formula. With that said, some ingredients have been researched more than others and are backed by years of real life research. Vitamin C is one of the most effective and extensively studied antioxidants available in skin care today, it is favored by skin care professionals for its preventative and anti-aging benefits on skin. However, there are many different forms of vitamin C. For optimal free-radical protection, look for pure ascorbic acid (l-ascorbic acid) on the ingredient label. In addition to neutralizing free radicals and preventing premature aging, l-ascorbic acid has anti-aging benefits that include improving the appearance of wrinkles and loss of firmness. Additional antioxidants that also provide prevention against premature aging and anti-aging benefits are ferulic acid, vitamin E, phloretin (in its alpha-tocopherol form), and resveratrol.


Retinol is the essential anti-aging ingredient. It is a form of vitamin A, a retinoic acid, and has decades of research and proof behind its efficacy on sign of aging, such as fine lines and discoloration. Similar to vitamin C, there are many forms of retinol. For maximum anti-aging results, always look for”retinol” on a product’s list of ingredients. Other derivatives such as retinyl palmitate, retinyl acetate, and retinaldehyde are not as effective.

What anti-aging aesthetic procedures or treatments can help improve visible signs of aging?

While effective skin care is the basis of any anti-aging regimen, advances in aesthetic procedures and treatments offer the ability to powerfully transform skin’s appearance, in the form of lasers, chemical peels, injectables, like neurotoxins and soft tissue fillers, and more. We recommend consulting with a SkinCeuticals skin care professional who can create a customized treatment plan according to your needs, goals, and budget.

When should I start using anti-aging products?

At SkinCeuticals, we believe prevention is the best anti-aging correction. Prevention is key for delaying the appearance of visible signs of aging. Studies have shown that those who start a consistent sun protection routine early have less premature aging. To keep skin looking its best is to ward off the damage caused by environmental aggressors like UV rays and pollution. Using a SkinCeuticals vitamin C daytime antioxidant and sunscreen will ward off premature aging caused by environmental aggressors such as UV rays and pollution.
