What are the steps for an anti-aging skin care routine?
What goes into an anti aging routine doesn’t need to be complicated to be effective. ZO® Skin Health’s proprietary innovations include cutting-edge products and treatment protocols that support your skin health. A ZO® Skin Health anti aging skin care routine is comprised of the following steps:
STEP 1: GETTING SKIN READY®
The initial Getting Skin Ready® (GSR®) protocol consists of cleansing, exfoliating and toning. GSR® is the first step to prevent skin aging and bring skin back to its most healthy, balanced state.
STEP 2: PREVENT + CORRECT
ZO® Prevent and Correct protocols address your specific skin concerns with medical-grade treatments and proprietary technologies to address premature aging, brightening, hydration and more.
STEP 3: PROTECT
The Protect step is based on ZO®’s Triple-Spectrum Protection® technology that goes beyond conventional sunscreens with scientifically superior, total skin defense.
Sunscreen + Retinol: Essentials of the Best Anti-aging Skin Care Routine
ZO® Skin Health experts, notably the dermatologists who study skin the closest to effectively treat the skin concerns of their patients, are unanimous that the best anti aging skin care routine begins with a sunscreen for face in the AM.
In addition to protecting from skin cancer, a daily facial sunscreen is proven to be effective at preventing photodamage, aka sun damage, and the subsequent signs of premature skin aging, known as photoaging.
According to the National Library of Medicine at the NIH, “Clinical signs of aging are essentially influenced by extrinsic factors, especially sun exposure. Indeed UV exposure seems to be responsible for 80% of visible facial aging signs.” ZO® sunscreens offer Triple Spectrum Protection® to protect against sun damage.
At night, an anti aging skincare routine should feature a retinol face cream to help correct signs of damage and promote long term skin health.
What Does Retinol Do For Your Skin?
Among the most important benefits of a retinol night cream is its proven ability to accelerate skin cell production. By stimulating the production of new skin cells, retinol helps improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin by allowing new, healthy skin cells to replace old, damaged cells.
ZO® retinol skincare products focus on using a wide range of ingredients to provide a comprehensive offering of products to repair every skin concern.
What Is The Best Retinol For Aging?
The ZO® Radical Night Repair is a retinol-infused night cream formulated with 1% encapsulated retinol to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, visible firmness and surface discoloration.
What Are the Best Anti-aging Products for Wrinkles and Other Signs of Aging?
Preventing and correcting the appearance of wrinkles with sunscreen and a retinol serum or cream is just the beginning. In addition to lines and wrinkles, the common signs of skin aging include: hyperpigmentation and dark spots, loss of firmness, sagging skin, uneven skin tone, dullness and rough skin texture.
ZO® products are specifically designed to address both the visible signs and key triggers of aging at every phase. Browse our extensive range of the best anti-aging products designed to address your specific skin concerns.
What Is the Best Anti-aging Skin Care Routine?
The best anti-aging routine should comprise products with effective concentrations of proven active ingredients to help prevent, correct and protect.
An antioxidant face serum can help to prevent environmental damage due to pollution, UV and free radicals. A retinol night cream can be your most effective tool for correcting signs of aging topically. While a well-formulated, broad-spectrum sunscreen helps prevent photodamage and the signs of premature skin aging.
To take the guesswork out of what can be a complicated regimen, we asked our team of award-winning dermatologists to recommend a complete anti aging skincare routine in a step-by-step routine to prevent wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
The ZO® Skin Health Anti-Aging Program is a moderate skincare regimen consisting of five steps that combine to target the reduction of early signs of environmental and chronological aging. Browse this anti aging regimen here.
