How to Combat Premature Aging of the Skin | SIMPURE

Skincare has come such a long way in the past decade and the industry continues to flourish. We have even gotten to the point of anti-aging and reversing skin damage. Although we cannot control our increasing age, we can keep others guessing our true number based on the looks of our glowing skin. Staying active and hydrated, eating balanced meals, and a proper skincare regimen will be your skin’s best friend in the process. The best part is, you can start at any age and see amazing results with consistency.

When to Start Using Anti-Aging Products

First things first, it is never too late to start. Along with that, it is really never too early either. Of course our younger crowd does not need to purchase anti-aging specific products, but daily SPF and a nice moisturizer will keep you soft and supple. We recommend implementing anti-aging ingredients in your 20s, if possible.

Around age 40-50, we should have a designated, consistent, and effective routine that targets anti-aging. This includes focusing on wrinkles and fine lines, dark and sun spots, and dry skin. As we age, we are more prone to these as our skin loses elastin and collagen. Luckily, there are amazing active ingredients in skincare products that can help us slow down the aging process and help regain that youthful appearance.

When choosing your products, you should know which ingredients to search for to target your problem areas. Some anti-aging products may be labeled as such, but may not contain the active ingredients to do what they promise.

Best Ingredients for Anti-Aging

Retinol/Retinoid (Vitamin A)

  • Boosts collagen and elastin production
  • Lessens the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Improves discoloration

Alpha-hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

  • Encourages skin cell renewal
  • Brightens your skin
  • Reduces sun spots and dark marks from sun damage and hyperpigmentation

Hyaluronic Acid

  • Acts as a moisture retainer and plumps skin
  • Reduces scarring and can help heal damaged skin

Vitamin C

  • Protects skin from UV rays, pollution, and free radicals
  • Brightens dull-looking complexion
  • Allows superficial skin cells to repair hyperpigmentation

Copper Peptide

  • An antioxidant that boosts elastin and collagen production
  • Helps reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles


  • Protects skin from UV rays
  • Allows other products to work, without it they are counteracted

All of these ingredients can be used daily, except AHAs which should be used 2-3 times a week, or every other day if your skin can handle it.

How to Find Anti-Aging Products that Actually Work

That may seem like a daunting amount of ingredients to start a routine with. The 3 most important products to use while crafting your perfect anti-aging routine are vitamin C, sunscreen and retinol. These are the only products scientifically proven to be effective when it comes to anti-aging. The rest will definitely help with your skin’s appearance, but these are your essentials.

SPF is your BFF when it comes to anti-aging skincare, as UV rays are responsible for more than 90% of skin aging. You need to be using at least SPF30 and a sunscreen that is broad spectrum to protect your precious skin from UVA and UVB rays. Our Weightless SPF50 is perfect for all skin types as it is non-comedogenic, meaning it will not clog your pores, is extremely lightweight but effective, and leaves no white cast.

SPF protects your skin a strong amount, but pollution and free radicals can still make their way through that barrier, so pairing sunscreen with vitamin C is an effective way to protect your skin from thos environmental factors.

Our REFRESH line is vitamin C based, and consists of our Mud Cleanser, Vitamin C Toner, and Vitamin C Moisturizer. Starting your day with this combination will not only help give your skin the environmental protection that it needs, it will also help with any hyperpigmentation and fade away dark spots.

Retinol is the third product in this magic trio. Retinol should be used at nighttime as it makes your skin more sensitive to UV rays, and can decrease its effectiveness. Retinol is also known as vitamin A, and is used to stimulate skin cell renovation and accelerates collagen production. This will help repel fine lines and wrinkles while reversing pigmentation and improving skin texture.

We recommend using our Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, which is packed with both vitamin A and vitamin C, 1-2 times per week, and our Fade Away Peptide Serum followed with our Night Cream every night to provide extra hydration and allow the vitamins to soak in while you rest.
