Anti-Ageing- Prevention is better than cure!
You might think you don’t need to start thinking about anti-ageing products until you start getting lines and wrinkles when in fact, its far more beneficial to start PREVENTING lines and wrinkles than it is to try to get rid of them when they’ve already formed.
The ingredients in anti wrinkle products are beneficial to skin in general, not just for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. AHAs (such as Lactic Acid) and Vitamin A (Retinol) help to keep skin exfoliated thus speeding up cell turnover (giving you glowing skin) and keeping collagen production boosted (a reduction in collagen is what causes lines and wrinkles).
There are also other beneficial ingredients like Vitamin C which is an amazing antioxidant and free radical scavenger, preventing environmental damage to your skin. Environmental damage (whether from the sun or pollution) wrecks havoc with the skin leading to dull, lifeless skin and accelerates ageing. Vitamin C also stimulates collagen keeping skin plump for longer.
So where to start?
Simply adding one or two products into your routine in your mid 20s to early 30s will make the world of difference to preventing ageing.

It contains Arginine which is an amino acid and also contains Ameliox which is a dipeptide that decreases the formation of AGEs by attaching to the glucose that would normally attach to collagen fibres causing glycation.
Or introduce any AlumierMD product containing Matrixyl Synthe’6 (which is most of them!!) – Matrixyl Synthe’6 is a powerful anti ageing peptide that strengthens the skin, improves elasticity and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is found in most AlumierMD products and is an amazing anti ageing ingredient.
