Anti-Ageing Creams that Complement Retinol: Skincare Guide

Many people make the mistake of relying on only one active ingredient to solve all their skin woes. Is there such a magical product that can heal and repair every one of your skin problems? The answer is a resounding ‘no.’ Using only one active ingredient is not sufficient. The same is the case with retinol. Yes, it helps enhance skin cell production and opens the pores.It lightens dark spots, evens skin tone, and boosts collagen production.

If you are new to skincare you will experience the side effects and stop using retinol. All you need is a good skincare routine with the best creams in India. These face creams will soothe your skin, while retinol works the magic. Here’s how you can use complementary anti-ageing creams to aid retinol in making your skin plump and young.

The Sandwich Method Uses Retinol

Dermatologists recommend using active retinol either once or twice a week. However, it causes purging when directly applied to the skin. The Sandwich Method dilutes the direct application of active retinol so that it causes the most minor damage to the skin. 

Step 1– Make sure to use one of the best face wash to cleanse your face to open your pores. Wash away excess oil with the help of a good anti-ageing face wash that helps purify the skin like the Lotus Herbals YouthRx Firm & Bright Face Wash which has bakuchiol and vitamin C and cleanses your face and deeply unclogs pores. 

Step 2– Apply a thin layer of face moisturizer for women. The moisturizer is a protective film on your skin. Wait for your skin to absorb it.

Step 3– Take 3-4 drops of Lotus Herbals Radiance Boost Ubtan Face Serum  and gently massage your face. Let it completely soak in.

Step 4– Apply another layer of the face moisturizer. It should give intense hydration to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The Lotus Herbals YouthRx Youth Activating Moisturizer penetrates deep into your skin to lift, firm, and slow the signs of aging. 

Anti-Ageing Creams to Accompany Retinol

So, what will you do the other days of the week when you don’t use retinol? You will alleviate and restore your skin from the aftereffects of purging. Also, your skin needs protection so that the retinol does not break down. There are anti-ageing alternative creams to retinol that are not that harsh on your skin.  These creams not only help tighten the skin, but also in diminishing the age spots and discoloration, thus making the skin radiant.

Did you know that the best anti-ageing solution is SPF? Yes! UV rays instantly harm collagen and peptides in our skin that cause wrinkles. They induce free radical production, which damages our skin the most. It is well known that the harsh UV rays of the sun tend to break down retinol and cause hyperpigmentation on our skin.

To protect your skin against sunlight, you must include an SPF-based anti-ageing cream in your routine. They shield the sun’s rays and boost collagen from within the skin cells.

Nourishing Creams for Night

Our body and mind sleep at night to repair the worn-out tissues. So does our face. The nighttime routine is to nourish and repair the skin.
