You may not know it, but your skin is a hero to your body. As you go through your life, your skin is exposed to various dangers–harsh UV rays, external irritants, unhealthy air–that your skin is charged with protecting the rest of you from.

In return, it only makes sense that we do our best to keep our aging or mature skin looking clear, bright, and healthy overall.

With a daily, dedicated anti-aging skin care regimen, your skin can better withstand all that comes with it. Whether you’re in your thirties or your seventies, going through the steps to properly care for your complexion–day in and day out–can lead to strengthened, supported skin from the inside out.

Our Skin Health Experts have curated an easy-to-follow anti-aging skincare routine for anyone looking to protect against daily wear and tear, no matter your stage of life.

The Essentials: Day and Night

What causes forehead wrinkles and fine lines on our face? Genetics, skin type, unhealthy habits, and mort can accelerate skin aging. That’s why having a solid anti-aging skincare routine is essential to treat and prevent. Some skin care steps are necessary; you need them both at the start and end of your day. Start with these products in both your daytime and nighttime routines.


A work of art always starts with a blank canvas. Make sure to prep your skin by removing any oil, dirt, or makeup buildup with a gentle facial cleanser. Regarding anti-aging skincare routines, we’ll emphasize the importance of gentle products: they shouldn’t dry out your skin, and preserving hydration is crucial in visibly improving the appearance of wrinkles.


While toners are usually suggested for acne-prone skin, many are jam-packed with nutrients to sustain bright, firm skin. After cleansing, try using a toner with ingredients like niacinamide, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid. These replenish the skin and promote skin cell renewal, promoting a youthful, plump glow.


If there’s one tip to take away from this article, it’s this: hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

Ensure you’re following your toner with a moisturizing cream that refreshes and nourishes your skin, as this can encourage proper hydration, repair the skin barrier, and skin elasticity. For the morning, we recommend a lighter, water-based moisturizer, like the HydraKate(tm)Recharging Water Cream, while richer moisturizers should soak in while you sleep.

Steps to Boost Your Morning Routine

Like the coffee that helps you to shake off sleep each day, some steps of an anti-aging skin care regimen are best to use in the morning. Add these products after the essentials of skin care to wake your skin up and be ready to face the sun.


Sun damage remains the leading cause of premature aging. There’s nothing more important than sunscreen in preventing signs of aging. Sunscreen protects us from more than just sunburn; it also shields our skin from skin cancer, UV damage, dark spots, and–that’s right–premature aging. It can also help minimize the appearance of uneven skin tone and age spots.

Apply at least three-fingers-length sunscreen to your face and neck after your moisturizer to help guard your skin against sun damage. Also, reduce your sun exposure by wearing clothes that cover your skin or using an umbrella with UV protection.


A good skin serum can give your skin a bright morning boost in only a few drops. Since serums are made to be lightweight (while still packing a punch of beneficial active ingredients), they’re perfect for layering between moisturizer and makeup. All the nourishment, none of the bulk. Some of the most common skin serums contain active ingredients like vitamins E, A, and C and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and balance the skin. For morning-time serums, look out for hyaluronic-acid-forward products. Try the HydraKate(tm) Recharging Serum for one that combats dullness and dehydration.

Additions for an Ideal Evening Routine

Nighttime skincare usually features more affluent, heavier, and more intensive products. As we sleep, they can penetrate our pores more profoundly and thus offer more robust effects.

Consider introducing these products to your evening skincare routine for maximum skin rejuvenation.


These days, no anti-aging skincare routine is complete without retinol. Derived from vitamin A, this product can penetrate deep into your skin to boost collagen production, increase skin cell turnover, reduce the look of dark spots and age spots, and visibly improve the appearance of wrinkles. It can also brighten dark under-eye circles if used correctly.

Adding a retinol like the DERMALQUENCH LIQUID LIFT(r) +RETINOL to your evening routine is ideal, as it will have more time to soak in while you rest. In addition, it’s best to apply retinol at night–and follow with sunscreen in the morning–as retinol can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

A Tip from our Skin Health Experts: Retinol is an active solid ingredient. You should visit a board-certified dermatologist or skin health expert to determine if retinol is the right solution for your skin concerns. If you have dry skin, sensitive skin, or acne-prone skin, slowly introduce the retinol in your skincare routine so your skin gets used to it. That way, you’d know whether it is compatible with your skin. Retinol is an effective anti-aging ingredient when used correctly under the supervision of a skincare expert.

Lip mask

Perhaps you haven’t considered it before, but your lips deserve attention during your skincare routine. You’d surely want your mouth to match if you’re already working hard to keep your skin looking young.

Lip masks use butter, oils, and creams thicker than any old pocket lip balm (and deliver far more powerful hydration), making them much more suited to nighttime use. The rich hydration of these masks can help prevent lip wrinkles, dryness, and dullness.
