September 11, 2017


Anti-aging skincare is complicated. You have all these skincare brands popping up on every shelf, all claiming to be the best at this, that and the next thing, and you’re left there seriously contemplating if preventing wrinkles is even worth the stress. The beauty industry definitely doesn’t make it easy to find the right anti-aging products and anti-aging skincare regime.

But I’m here to help you out. Being an acclaimed aesthetician and creator of the natural & organic skincare brand, Pure Essentials, I know exactly what it takes to actually reverse the signs of aging. And let me tell you, there’s no magic lotion or pill, nor is there one bottle of skincare.

In order to see the best antiaging results, there are various steps (and anti-aging skincare products) that should be used. After all, you wouldn’t use foot cream on your entire body.

You need advanced skincare products designed to do a specific job and that job exceptionally well. But then you run into the confusion of what skin care products go on first, which ones need time to soak into the skin before applying more and so on and so forth.

Don’t worry. Here at my skincare and makeup shop in Hudson, New Hampshire, I’m always providing specific skin care steps for my clients based on their specific skincare needs and budget. So, I’ve decided to let you in on the secret steps to having a comprehensive anti-aging skincare routine.  


If you have specific skincare concerns, needs or budgets, please contact Anika Skincare & Makeup in Hudson, NH.  


Skincare Steps for the Morning

Your morning anti-aging skincare routine needs to consists of various steps to ensure your skin has all the moisture, protection, and healing it needs to get through the day. As such, you need to cleanse your skin, tone your complexion, firm your eye area, neck and chest, apply sun protection, and the list goes on.

Here are the proper steps you should take when applying a complete anti-aging skincare regime to your skin in the morning.


  1. Wash with a cleanser
  2. Tone with toner 
  3. Apply eye firming gel or creme
  4. Apply stimulating serum to encourage new cell growth
  5. Apply correcting serum to treat discolorations, blemishes, sun damage, etc.
  6. Hydrate with a moisturizer
  7. Apply neck and chest firming cream (optional)
  8. Apply sun protection 


These eight steps will prepare your skin to handle every aspect of the day, from pollution to chemicals, toxins, oil, dirt, and makeup. It also cleanses and protects your skin from various elements while also rejuvenating it to tackle the day. Think of it as a pep talk for your skin.


Skincare Steps for the Evening

Many skincare professionals believe that your evening skincare regime is actually the most important. You’ve spent all day out, subjecting your skin to various pollutants, toxins and elements, and it needs to be cleaned.

On the other hand, if you wash your skin in the evening but don’t treat it properly, you’re giving your pores approximately 8 hours to soak in all the dirt, grime and debris. So, no matter how tired you may be at night, don’t say goodnight until you execute these anti-aging skincare steps.

  1. Wash your face with a cleanser
  2. Tone your complexion with a toner (optional)
  3. Exfoliate skin
  4. Apply firming serum
  5. Moisturize



Types of Antiaging Skincare Products

As the saying goes, ‘You get what you pay for’ especially when it comes to anti-aging skincare. If you’re packing all sorts of chemicals and toxins onto your skin in an effort to treat a skincare solution, you’re only asking for more problems. Chemicals and toxins always have side effects. If you want to treat your skincare concerns without making them worse or risking a new load of problems, the more natural the product, the better. It’s like trying to treat a sore by picking at the scab. Sure, you’ll change the appearance of the sore but you’re in for worse problems in the long run, such as scarring. So, be wise when selecting your anti-aging skincare products.

That doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune nor do you have to purchase the most expensive, luxurious skincare brand out there. You just have to pay attention to the type of skincare ingredients found in each bottle. Remember, the more natural, the better. Think extracts from fruits and plants instead of formaldehyde and parabens.

Here are some of my suggestions for each step provided within the anti-aging skincare routine.
