Where’s the Best Place to Work an Anti-Aging Product Into Your Skincare Routine?
Looking for a way to work an anti-aging product into your skincare routine, but aren’t sure which product type to choose? “A serum is the cornerstone of a good skincare regimen,” says Dr. Colleen Crandell, a dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group. They’re fast absorbing and contain higher concentrations of anti-aging ingredients than creams, lotions, or oils, she explains. “They are the workhorse for keeping skin youthful, and they surpass all other skincare products in delivering potent, active anti-aging ingredients into the skin.”
Cleansers stay on your face for less than 10 seconds which isn’t enough time to make an impact, Dr. Crandell says. “Inexpensive, over-the-counter facial cleansers do a great job at cleansing the skin,” she says. As for creams and lotions? Anti-aging moisturizers help target a variety of skin issues but aren’t as effective as serums, and anti-aging oils are only meant to add moisture. They don’t repair damage the way serums do, Dr. Crandell says.
