Aging and Wrinkles: A Guide to Anti-Aging Skincare Routine
Although aging and wrinkles and typical signs of mature skin, the term is loose in terms of when a person is expected to have signs of skin aging.
Experts believe that the first signs of aging skin appear towards our late 20s or early 30s. Of course, this is only the average and not a rule. Although genetics can be a factor, the way we live our life also plays a role in premature aging and wrinkles.
No worries! Here’s the only anti-aging guide you’ll ever need!

What Is Considered Aging Skin?
Possible Causes of Aging Skin and Wrinkles
Although it is a natural process, there are still known causes behind it:
UV damage or photodamage
The air we breathe, the harsh skincare chemicals, the water we drink – all of these things accumulate and can cause wrinkles. The very least you could do is use clean skincare brands free of any parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oils, formaldehyde, DEA, TEA, MEA, methylisothiazolinone, alumina, or derivatives.
Areas Prone to Aging and Wrinkles
Typically, the areas most prone to aging skin and wrinkles are the ones that are the most exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays:
- Facial Skin;
How to Treat Aging Skin and Wrinkles?
When it comes to mature skin, prevention is the best. Anti-age skincare routine should ideally start even before noticing the first signs of aging. But, if you already show wrinkles, don’t despair – there are still ways to treat wrinkles and fine lines.
Cosmetic procedures (non-invasive or slightly-invasive) commonly used against aging and wrinkles are:
- Dermal fillers
- Chemical or mechanical exfoliation
How to Prevent Aging and Wrinkles?
Daily use of sunscreen
Never leave your home without an SPF of 30+, more on sunny days. UV rays are a significant cause of premature skin aging and beauty concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, etc. Plus, UV rays break apart collagen formations and contribute to the loss of skin elasticity.
For the best anti-age results, use Halal and clean beauty skincare formulated from high-quality ingredients that will deeply hydrate your skin. For instance, our NUME Lab’s advanced renewal face cream contains snail mucin extract plus hyaluronic acid and vitamin C for an added moisture boost. Our ingredients are Halal and cruelty-free and don’t contain any harsh phthalates, sulfates, parabens, etc.
An effective way to prevent wrinkles and fine lines is to use exfoliating cleansers or serums. We prefer chemical peels based on AHAs instead of mechanical ones that can be too rough to the skin. You could try our Resurfacing Night Peel Serum made with 10% glycolic acid and vitamin B3. Plus, we added snail mucus extract and betaine for hydration and skin protection.
