It’s a common misconception that anti-aging products should only be used by people over 40.  This simply isn’t true!  Achieving beautiful, healthy skin is a process that continues throughout your life.  Learn about the benefits of lifelong, preventive anti-aging skincare below.  


What is preventive skincare? 


Preventive skin care is a proactive approach that combines clinical-strength active ingredients that prevent and correct aging skin at the cellular level – long before the signs of aging are visible.  The key is both correction and prevention—dual-action. 


According to Revercel’s co-founders, Drs. Arlene and Rick Noodleman, the best time to begin preventive skincare is in childhood with the use of sunscreen and sun-protective clothing.  Remember, sun damage is cumulative. This means that by the age of 18, you’ve already acquired most of the sun damage you’ll have in your life. Although it may not be visible, it’s important to prevent and treat this damage early.  In addition, fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and discoloration begin to develop in your 20s and 30s. Proven cosmeceutical formulations help reverse the aging process and protect against further damage.   


What are the best preventive anti-aging skincare products? 


The best products to use to prevent and correct the signs of aging are those that are formulated with active ingredients such as antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, retinoids, alpha-hydroxy acids, and peptides.  


Antioxidants brighten dull skin and protect it from damage caused by free radicals and environmental stressors. Revercel’s CE Serum features a synergistic antioxidant combination of vitamins C and E to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while firming and brightening your skin.  


In general, our skin gets drier with age.  Hyaluronic acid deeply hydrates the skin by locking in moisture while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Consider trying AM Daily Moisturizer SPF 45+.  In addition to hyaluronic acid, AM contains vitamins B5 and E and SPF 45+ for powerful sun protection.  


Alpha-hydroxy acids, or AHAs, brighten skin and increase cell turnover to reveal the new skin layer underneath. AHAs such as glycolic acid also help correct uneven skin tone, prevent breakouts and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Perfect Glycolic Cleanser is formulated with 15% glycolic acid, antioxidants, and botanicals to leave dull skin looking bright and fresh. Perfect Glycolic Treatment 15% increases cell turnover for brighter, fresher skin. It also reduces uneven skin tone and helps clear acne, blackheads and milia. Once your skin has accommodated to the 15% strength, step-up to Perfect Glycolic Treatment 25%.  


Copper peptides are formed when peptides bind with copper enzymes.  They’re strong antioxidants that promote skin regeneration and increase collagen production and skin elasticity. They also can ease inflammation. One of our bestsellers, Eye Perfection Serum with Retinol, contains copper peptide-1 to improve the texture and overall appearance of the delicate eye area.  


Preventive daily skincare 


Using SPF daily is essential to protect your skin from dangerous UVA & UVB rays. We recommend Triple Duty Plus Sunscreen SPF 35+, the perfect daily, all-in-one sunscreen.  Triple Duty has a powerful 3-in-1 advantage: a blend of all-physical sun protection, a sheer tint, and anti-aging ingredients such as vitamins C and E. 


Lastly, cleansing and moisturizing morning and evening helps prevent the signs of aging.  Papaya Cleanser contains papaya fruit enzymes and salicylic acid to deeply cleanse and exfoliate for a bright, even complexion. PM Anti-Aging Moisturizer contains powerful anti-aging ingredients such as CoQ10 and peptides to stimulate collagen production and increase hydration and resilience.  As a result, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced and the skin has increased clarity and radiance.
