What Are Worry Lines and How To Stop Brooding Over Them

No matter how consistent you are with your skin care routine, there are certain things that will happen to your visage over time as you age. One of those things is none other than worry lines. Like the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, the news may not be what you want to hear. However, it’s important to note that ageing skin is a part of life. As you navigate through the inevitable process, you’ll want to revamp your regimen to help you maintain radiant and healthy-looking skin. While there is no magic button that can keep us looking young forever, you can help stave off signs of ageing by following an anti-aging skincare routine. Consider our four tips below to keep your skin in tip-top shape.

Tip #1: Use A Nourishing Cream Cleanser

One of the best things you can do for worry lines is to add a milky or cream cleanser to your regime. It works wonders to replenish your skin with moisture, which helps to reduce the look of visible signs of aging. Start things off by using a cleanser, like the L’Oréal Paris Milky Cleansing Foam or L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Classic Facial Cleansing Milk. These formulas will also gently remove all traces of makeup and cleanse skin without overdrying.

Tip #2: Reach For A Facial Moisturizer

Moisture is the key to minimising the look of worry lines. So, it’s vital that you add a Day Cream or Night Cream to your regime. Remember, you’ll need a formula that goes the extra mile to provide your skin with lasting hydration. We love the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Day Cream, which is formulated with nurturing oils and manuka honey extract. This face cream works to replenish skin with long-lasting, non-greasy, and non-sticky nourishment.

Tip #3: Grab A Face Serum

A facial moisturiser shouldn’t be your only line of defence for nourishing your skin. Face serums are another skin care staple that can immediately restore hydration to your skin—an excellent tactic for dealing with worry lines. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Filler 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which works to enhance the skin’s moisture-retention to provide nourishment that goes the distance. It also visibly reduces the look of wrinkles in just two weeks.

Another fabulous serum that should be on your radar is the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Laser X3 Retinol Serum, 0.2% Pure Retinol. This pick is formulated with our highest concentration of pure retinol and fights key signs of aging like deep wrinkles. It also helps to smooth and brighten your complexion for a luminous finish.

You’ll need to take a gradual approach with this (or any) retinol serum, so the skin can acclimate. During week one, start by applying two to three drops to clean, dry skin twice a week. Week two, use every other night. Week three, use nightly if your visage can tolerate it. Always follow up with a broad-spectrum sunscreen in the a.m. to protect the skin from the sun when using retinol.

Tip #4: Always Protect Your Skin From The Sun

Sun protection should be a key part of your routine. Spending prolonged periods in the sun without adequate protection can cause premature signs of aging like worry lines to become a reality faster than they normally would. Play it safe and apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 15 daily as directed. Try the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 SPF15 Day Cream formulated with Pro-Xylane, renowned for it's strong anti-wrinkle properties to stimulate and strengthen the skin. Your sun protection measures shouldn’t start and end with sunscreen, however. Limit your amount of time in the sun (especially between 10 am to 3 pm, which are the sun’s peak hours), seek shade when outdoors, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.
