Anti-ageing Skincare For Healthy And Happy Skin

Get to know the signs of ageing & our anti-ageing tips so you can maintain your youthful & healthy skin for longer.

Common Signs of Ageing Skin

Everyone's skin is different and when the signs of ageing will begin to show is dependent on how healthy skin is. Knowing how to keep skin healthy means you need to learn about what your skin needs and recognising what signs are present, then you can discern the best anti-aging tips for you.

The most common signs of ageing skin are:

People naturally age at different rates depending on things such as lifestyle and genetics. Even healthy skin is susceptible to signs of ageing, understanding the various signs of ageing is an important part of learning about how to keep skin healthy & young. Here are the most common signs of ageing at these stages in your life:

Signs of aging at 20 +
Your skin is likely to experience a slight loss in moisture and some minor fine lines of ageing may appear. You may need to consider light day creams to give your skin a radiant boost and keep it protected from environmental factors. Not using SPF in your 20s can accelerate the signs of ageing caused by the sun's UV rays.

Signs of aging at 30 +
Your skin is likely to produce less lipids and the first lines of ageing may appear on your forehead from facial expressions, including vertical frown lines. Using products that give nourishment to skin whilst actively targeting signs of ageing will be your friend here.

Signs of aging at 40 +

Your skin is likely to become much drier and thinner, and you will experience your first wrinkles around your eyes as your skin begins to lose its elasticity. Different to your 30s you will want products that provide more intense moisture as well as having skin firming properties.

Signs of aging at 50 +
At this age, your body will be supplying fewer nutrients like CoQ10 for your skin.  Because of this you'll experience a pale complexion and less elasticity on your face. Your skin cell turnover will be much lower in your 50s and therefore it will be important to use products that will help to boost this.

Signs of aging at 60 +
During this period, you'll experience a loss of density of your skin, your contours will blur, skin will sag and pigment spots will start occurring. As your skin reaches full maturity its once strong natural defensive barrier will become weaker, in line with cell turnover continuing to fall. It will be more susceptible to dryness and redness so using deeply nourishing day and night creams that help the skin's natural renewal process will be vital to maintaining healthy skin.

When Should You Start an Anti-Ageing Skincare Routine?

Unsure of exactly when you should start using anti-wrinkle and anti-ageing skincare products? The simple answer is that there is no correct time! It can never be too early to start using a moisturising cream with SPF included or to start exploring different anti-ageing skincare products, and it’s certainly never too late to adopt a healthier lifestyle to help prevent the appearance of premature ageing. Adopting anti-ageing products into your routine is key in how to keep skin young.

Giving your skin a daily energise with NIVEA Q10 Energy Healthy Glow Day Cream with SPF 15 will help to give your skin a boost each day as this cream contains 100% Skin Identical Q10 and Vitamin C which have a host of benefits for your skin such as: skin firming, enhanced protection, increased cell turnover, increased skin hydration and reduced facial redness.

The rate of the appearance of ageing on your face will completely depend on your lifestyle and genetics. While ageing is a natural and beautiful process; which is completely individual to each one of us, none of us want to look older than we are and we all want to know how to keep skin young! Keeping on-top of your 24h skin care routine as your skin matures will enable you to keep healthy skin that looks young.

An effective anti-ageing skincare routine needs to be personalised to your individual needs, and include anything from eye cream, day and night cream to serums, and cleansers. 


Coenzyme Q10 is naturally found in the skin cells of our body and is essential for keeping skin healthy and young. Q10 is released as an antioxidant to combat oxidative stress that can be caused daily by things such as environmental and lifestyle factors. Collagen makes up most of our skin and gives it support and structure, Q10 plays a pivotal role in giving skin cells the energy they need to produce collagen, therefore meaning without Q10 our skin's ability to regenerate and repair can diminish. As we age, our natural levels of Q10 begin to fade, and with it the production of collagen slows. NIVEA's ranges of Q10 products contain Q10 that is 100% identical to that found in your skin and are fantastic for combating signs of ageing, keeping skin healthy and young.

Anti ageing tips: Your Short Guide to Safeguard Skin from Premature Ageing

  • In your early twenties, protect your skin from the sun whenever you can with medium to high SPF. Use light skincare products, cleanse, and exfoliate as often as you feel the need.
  • In your mid-twenties to mid-thirties, keep your skin hydrated, protected from the sun, and introduce NIVEA’s Q10 skincare range. These products contain Q10 that is 100% identical to that found in your skin can give your skin cells the energy they need to revive the appearance of your skin.
  • In your mid-thirties to mid-forties, intense hydration for your skin is important in how to keep skin young. High SPF sun cream for sun protection is an absolute must. Active use of creams containing coenzyme Q10 to energise your skin is advised for an effective anti-ageing skincare routine.
  • Once you hit your mid-forties, you should start using non-drying cleansers such as NIVEA Daily Essentials Caring Micellar Cleansing Water. Sun cream is an essential and you should start including your chest and neck to your anti-ageing skin care routine. Why not try Protect & Moisture Moisturising Sun Lotion SPF30 to keep those harmful UVA / UVB rays at bay!
  • From 55 years, and onwards, try and include all the above but these products should be part of a regular, daily anti-ageing skincare routine. Use products that are more deeply nourishing for your skin to provide yourself with additional nutrients.

Anti-Ageing Sun Skincare

UV light from the sun is one of the most common causes of premature skin ageing. And as much as we all love to lie back in the sun to get tan, it is so important to properly protect your skin from the sun. This protection is essential every day, not just on holidays for healthy skin. 

Sunlight contains both UVA & UVB radiation. UVA rays are able to penetrate deep into our skin, causing it to darken but also damaging our skin's DNA. UVB rays only penetrate the outer layer of our skin and are mostly responsible for onset premature ageing signs such as wrinkles, dark spots and a loss of skin elasticity. Using a day cream containing SPF or sun screen is essential to defend against the damage that can be caused by both UVA & UVB rays and for how to keep skin young. The higher the SPF of the sun care cream you use, the less amount of UV radiation will reach your skin. 

Sun protection will also protect your skin from sunburn and destructive free radicals. Sun-cream should be a fundamental part of your anti-ageing skincare routine.

5 Anti-Ageing Skincare Tips

  1. Care for your insides as much as your outsides
    A healthy diet and lifestyle will directly affect how you show signs of ageing and lead to healthy skin. Drinking lots of water every day and cutting back on processed foods are a great start. Be kind to yourself and your skin!
  2. Care for your skin regularly
    Feel happier and healthier as you show your skin how much you care! Use of day and night cream regularly, utilise eye creams and moisturise. If you don't already have one, adopt a regular skin care routine and you should start to see (and feel) the effects.
  3. Love and care for your skin 
    Don't wait for your skin to start showing signs of wrinkles and dryness before you adopt an anti-ageing skincare routine. Be kind to your skin and feel beautiful inside and out! 
  4. Wear sun-cream or an SPF moisturiser every day 
    It will protect your skin from UV rays which can cause premature ageing. 
  5. Remove your make up every evening 
    When you wear makeup, your skin is exposed to various chemicals. If you don't cleanse your face after a long day, you’ll be exposing your face to these chemicals all night long too. These chemicals can break down collagen in your skin.
