What causes signs of aging on our skin?
Aging is unavoidable, and over time we begin to see this reflected in our skin in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, dull or discoloured skin and a loss of elasticity causing sagging. Much of this is the result of both external damages from the sun and pollution, as well as our bodies' natural decline in collagen production.
Luckily, anti-aging skincare products, like anti-aging creams are scientifically formulated to diminish, and even slow down, these signs of aging.
The difference between anti-aging creams and regular moisturisers
While general hydration is extremely important for our skin, the most effective anti-aging night creams also contain active ingredients that target skin concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, loss of collagen and hyperpigmentation.
Essentially, regular moisturiser does one thing, while an anti-aging day cream does that and more due to containing active ingredients like peptides, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants.

How to use a Lancôme anti-aging cream
After cleansing, toning, and applying your serums, work the anti age cream into your skin from the middle of the face outwards. Complete your routine by tapping your fingertips lightly over your entire face.
If you’re looking to save time in the mornings, choose an anti-aging day cream with SPF, like the Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturising Day Cream SPF 15 which protects your skin from damage as it hydrates. Alternatively, after applying your anti-aging day cream, apply an SPF liberally across your entire face and neck to protect against harsh UV rays.
