5 Tips To Get Youthful Skin With An Anti-Ageing Serum
When it comes to targeted skincare to prevent and reverse ageing, an anti-ageing serum can be your best friend! Serums contain high concentrations of active ingredients that can repair your skin and encourage faster skin renewal.
Hence, they show the fastest results in terms of reducing pigmentation, fine lines, and skin texture. Moreover, there are tips and tricks to using a serum that can further enhance its efficacy. If you want to get youthful skin at the earliest with the help of an anti-ageing serum, do try out these tips!
#1 Choose The Right Ingredients For Your Anti-Ageing Serum
When it comes to picking the best serum for ageing skin, pay attention to the ingredient list. Aim for a combination of ingredients that help with dead skin removal and collagen production. Here are some tips on selecting the right anti-ageing ingredients for your serum.
Best Anti-Ageing Serum Ingredients
Anti-ageing serum ingredients broadly consist of collagen-boosting ingredients and skin-renewing ingredients. Peptides and Vitamin C stimulate collagen production in the skin, making it supple and elastic. Retinol and Niacinamide are skin-renewing ingredients that encourage faster cell renewal, leading to brighter, youthful skin. These anti-ageing ingredients can be paired with hydrating and barrier strengthening ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and ceramides, to offer all-round care to the skin.
How To Pick The Best Anti-Ageing Serum For Your Skin Type?
If you have sensitive skin, Niacinamide and Peptides can be the best anti-ageing ingredients for you. These ingredients strengthen the skin barrier while preventing the signs of ageing. They are also gentle enough to suit most skin types.
If your skin is more resilient, then you can add a Vitamin C serum to your regimen too. Retinol, on the other hand, is a potent anti-ageing ingredient that is not recommended for dry or sensitive skin. However, it can work well for oily skin if you start with a low concentration.

#2 Layer Your Serums Correctly
Many of us get lured into buying multiple serums and emulsions but don’t know how to use them together. If you too are wondering how to layer skincare, these tips can help you out.
The Golden Rule For Layering Skincare
The golden rule for how to layer skincare is to move from the thinnest to the thickest product. Also, you should apply water-based products before oil-based products. So, start by using a toner on your cleansed skin and then apply your serums, moving from the thinnest to the thickest formula. Then, seal everything in place with a moisturizer or face oil.
Serum Combinations To Avoid While Layering
With skincare, the “less is more” approach usually works better than the “more is more” approach. Hence, avoid using too many active ingredients in the same routine. Avoid pairing exfoliating acids (AHAs and BHAs) with retinol, and don’t use Vitamin C and Retinol in the same routine either. Instead, you can use these products separately on specific days of the week. To enhance the benefits of your anti-ageing serum, layer it with a hydrating serum or cream instead of pairing it with other actives.
#3 Pat Your Serums, Don’t Rub Them In
Being gentle with your ageing skin should be your topmost priority, even while applying skincare! Have you been applying your serums correctly? Let us find out!
How To Apply Face Serum Correctly?
Due to their thin consistency, serums penetrate the skin with ease and do not need to be worked into the skin. All you need to do is gently pat the anti-ageing serum all over your face with your fingers. It will get absorbed into your skin within seconds on its own! So, don’t rub your skin while applying a serum as you will only end up irritating it!
Best Tools For Applying Serums
Your fingers are the best tools for applying serums, but you can also use a jade or quartz roller as the last step of your skincare routine. A gentle massage with a roller will soothe your skin and will allow the products to spread evenly on the face.
#4 Use Different Serums For Day And Night
If you wish to leverage the benefits of multiple anti-ageing ingredients, you can incorporate different serums in your routine for the day and night respectively. Moreover, certain anti-ageing ingredients are more effective during the daytime while others work better at night. Here are some daytime and nighttime serums you can try!
Best Serums For The Day
Vitamin C serums work really well during the day, provided you add sunscreen on top. Vitamin C brightens the skin, reduces pigmentation, and firms the skin by boosting your collagen levels. The Angel Skin Bright Lumi Serum is another excellent daytime serum that contains brightening vitamins and strengthening peptides!
Best Nighttime Serum
Retinol is an excellent nighttime serum because it hastens the skin renewal process, which is already faster at night. Hence, when you use retinol at night, you will wake up to glowing, supple skin in the morning. It also makes the skin sensitive to sunlight, which is why you should avoid it during the day. Similarly, you should reserve any serums containing exfoliants for the night, but do not use them in conjunction with retinol!
#5 Always Use Sunscreen After Applying A Serum
Even the best anti ageing serum will be ineffective if you do not wear sunscreen during the day. Anti-ageing skincare and sunscreen go hand in hand and complement each other beautifully. Here is why you need both of them in your life!
Why Do You Need To Wear Sunscreen Daily?
The UV rays from the sun can damage your skin in multiple ways. UV rays break down the skin’s collagen, leading to wrinkles, fine lines and sagging. Sun exposure also causes pigmentation, dullness and sunspots on the skin. Moreover, active anti-ageing ingredients make the skin more sensitive to sunlight, further speeding up photoaging. Hence, you need to protect your skin by using a good quality sunscreen every single day.
Which Is The Best Anti-Ageing Sunscreen?
The Angel Skin Radiance Glow Sun Shield is an excellent anti-ageing sunscreen. It contains SPF 50 for optimal sun protection, along with fullerenes and peptides to boost skin regeneration. Hence, it not only protects the skin from sunlight but also repairs it and prevents ageing. You must use it every day for supple, radiant skin.
