How to choose your first anti-wrinkle cream?

It's decided, it's time to swap your moisturizer for a more anti-aging version: the fault of a few small wrinkles that settle a little too quickly for your taste, or that tired look that you have trouble getting rid of... And it's perfectly normal: as time goes by, our reserves of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are no longer as large as they were at our 20s. The skin regenerates less quickly. Add to that stress, fatigue, pollution, UV rays or even smoking, and you get an explosive cocktail. We help you to take the lead in accompanying your skin through this change.

Before thinking about anti-wrinkle care, think about double cleansing

Did you know that your very first anti-aging gesture doesn't start with the cream? It actually starts long before... Every night, thanks to a scrupulous make-up removal. Why? You rid your skin of the impurities accumulated during the day, especially the hyper-irritating pollution particles that accelerate premature aging. The skin, thus cleansed, "breathes better" and can fully regenerate itself at night. The effectiveness of the anti-aging treatments applied afterwards is thus boosted, and cell renewal can take place in an optimal way.

What is the best anti-wrinkle cream to start with?

There is no such thing as ONE best anti-wrinkle cream: simply because your skin is unique. First of all, its nature, which must be systematically taken into account (this is the famous skin type, which you can determine with our online skin diagnosis tool online skin diagnosis tool), but also by your own concerns in terms of skin aging. Some worry about sagging skin (typically the oval of the face becoming less defined), while others focus on their wrinkles, which are starting to show, or on skin that lacks density. For some, it is a less clear complexion, sometimes even blurred by small brown spots that begin to seriously bother them... As you will have understood, the best anti-wrinkle cream for you is the one that fits exactly with what you want to treat, while matching your skin type.

Finally, you should be particularly careful if your skin is sensitive or has a tendency to have imperfections. In this case, avoid anti-aging creams that contain too many stimulating active ingredients, as they may cause your skin to react. Prefer light creams with a retinol base if your skin is prone to pimples: you will treat both the signs of aging and even the blurred complexion, while boosting its healing.
