Spend a little too much time soaking up the sun in your youth, or caking irritating, skin-damaging products onto your skin? The good news is, hope is not lost! While you’ll never be able to unwind the clock and go back to the youthful, carefree skin you had in your teens and 20s, much of the damage done can be reversed – at least to some extent. Signs of aging skin, like dark spots, discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles can be treated with the right products and a little dedication. Keep reading to find out the four ways you can reverse skin damage and aging!

4. Banish Dark Spots and Skin Discoloration

Whether you’re dealing with dark spots from spending one too many sunny days in the sun or red marks from acne, you’ll want to act now to prevent discoloration from getting worse and treat the already-existing problem areas. One of the easiest ways to prevent more dark spots (and wrinkles, too, for that matter) is to make sure you always wear a good sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher). To treat existing discoloration, find products that contain melanin-inhibiting ingredients, like vitamin C, niacinamide, acetyl glucosamine, and retinol. You should also aim to use an AHA or BHA exfoliant every day to help fade dark or red spots. You might not see results right away (most products take six to eight weeks of consistent use), but stick with it and you’ll soon see a definite improvement in your skin!

3. Fight Wrinkles with More Retinol

You’ve likely heard the name retinol before. That’s because retinol is a primary ingredient in many anti-aging skin creams and products on the market today, and there’s a good reason for that. When used properly, retinol can tighten skin, improve texture and create healthier skin cells. Retin-A is a doctor-prescribed retinol that you can get from your dermatologist, but many over-the-counter skincare products contain a weaker version of retinol called retinoids. For more serious skincare concerns, however, talk to your dermatologist about starting a retinol regimen.
