When should you start using anti-aging products?
Most of the time, when we hear phrases like "skin care routine," it's easy to feel a little overwhelmed. With an abundance of products available, it can be difficult trying to find a product that suits you, and when you add "anti-aging" to the mix, it only confuses us even more! For those of us approaching our golden years, we're starting to ask ourselves "when should we start using anti-aging products?" Is it too soon, or worse, too late? Read on to find out what happens to our skin as we age and the products we can use to combat it.
What happens to the skin as we age?
As we age, gradual changes occur in the skin - this is inevitable. There are changes beneath the surface of the skin, as the collagen and elastic fibers in our skin begin to degrade and wear away, causing the skin to sag a little and wrinkle. Furthermore, as we age, our skin becomes thinner, giving it a papery appearance, which increases the visibility of blood vessels.
How do anti-aging products help?
Anti-aging products can help the skin in many ways, from preventing the formation of wrinkles, to reducing dark spots and even tightening the skin; Anti-aging creams and serums can really work wonders, especially if you start using them relatively early. It is recommended that you start using anti-aging products between the ages of 20 and 30, but the golden rule is to start using sunscreen from the age of 20, as this can help prevent skin aging from an early age.
What products should I use?
At Spa Ceylon, we believe that a natural anti-aging skincare routine is best. However, keep in mind that everyone has a different skin type and should use products that are suitable for them. With this in mind, for the best anti-aging skincare routine, how you apply your products can significantly affect the effectiveness of your regimen. Before applying any product to your skin, you must first clean your skin, after which the products change depending on the time of day.
For the morning: cleanser, toner, moisturizer and then sunscreen.
For the night: make-up remover, exfoliant, toner and moisturizer.

The best moisturizer for aging skin should hydrate and protect the skin, and that's exactly what our White Rice Nourishing Facial Cream does. Rice bran oil contains gamma oryzanol, which gives the skin a youthful appearance, while green tea and bearberry reduce the darkening of skin cells. This moisturizer will keep your skin hydrated throughout the day and give a mattifying finish that won't make your face look oily or shiny.
Virgin Coconut- Facial cleansing
This gentle foaming face wash is infused with virgin coconut oil, which is rich in nourishing vitamins and protective antioxidants that help remove any pollutants sitting on the skin and restore skin balance. Virgin coconut oil gently cleanses the skin without drying it, so it can be used up to twice a day.
Virgin Coconut- Moisturizing night cream
A good night's sleep goes a long way in preventing skin aging, but combine that with our White Rice Overnight Hydrating Treatment and you have a great nighttime skin routine! This is the best night cream for aging skin as it contains wheat, virgin coconut oil, avocado infused with rice bran oil, which helps soothe and comfort tired skin and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles. Sweet almond oil and aloe vera also help improve skin elasticity.
The White Rice Moisturizing Treatment can also be used as a night mask. All you have to do is apply a thick layer of the formula and keep it on for an hour or two before going to bed. After that, the mask can be washed off or you can wipe off the excess and leave it overnight for a deeply moisturizing treatment.
These products will certainly help you reduce or delay the effects of skin aging, however, don't forget that a good diet, drinking lots of water and exercising regularly also help.
