Skindicators: How to Tell If Your Skin is Aging Well

how to tell if skin is aging well

Lines, wrinkles, spots, sagging — they’re more than signs of aging . . . they’re clues to your skin’s story. Our skindicators can help you decipher these clues and more importantly, help you give your skin what it needs to age well.

Skindicator: You’re Seeing Spots

Sometimes called the moisture barrier, the skin barrier is made up of cells and lipids that work together to protect skin. Imagine it’s a brick wall, with solid mortar in between each brick. Nothing can permeate this wall, either from the inside out, or the outside in. That’s a healthy barrier. But now imagine that the mortar is weakened. It’s no longer the impermeable wall and in that compromised state, everything can come and go (water, vital nutrients out; irritants, bacteria, pollutants in).

What You Can Do

Since the sun is one of the biggest aging accelerators, always try to cover up and avoid the sun whenever possible. And always use SPF it’s a must. Don’t like how SPF formulas feel on your skin? No problem. StriVectin’s Repair Protect Moisturizer and Advanced Retinol Day Moisturizer combine serious skincare benefits with broad spectrum SPF protection. Plus target signs of sun damage with these other sol survivors:

Volumizing Hand Cream: Minimize discoloration while visibly plumping and smoothing hands.

Advanced Retinol Concentrated Serum: Even out skin tone for a more radiant complexion.

Skindicator: Your Face Looks Dull

Sure your social life may be exciting, but sometimes all that fun can leave your skin lackluster. Stress, lack of sleep, unbalanced diet even a few glasses of wine can add up to dry and dull skin.

What You Can Do

The good news is, you don’t have to change your lifestyle to banish dullness. You just need to help your skin make up for all that fun:

Multi-Action Active Infusion Youth Serum

Advanced Retinol Concentrated Serum

Skindicator: Sagging Skin Along the Jawline

You’ve made it through your younger years and wouldn’t change a thing. Older, wiser, happier. But in your late 30s, 40s and 50s you may be experiencing some sagginess or loss of definition around the jaw line that doesn’t match your positive mood. This is a sign of lost volume and elasticity.

What You Can Do

To target slack, loose skin on the neck, the changing shape of the eyes and mouth, the appearance of jowls, check out our Tighten & Lift collection, formulated to improve elasticity for visibly tighter, lifted, toned skin on the face, neck and body. It’s the best way to bag the sag and get skin tight.

Skindicator: Your Hands Look Gaunt

Hands are often one of the first places to show age. The skin on our hands endures a constant barrage of age accelerating aggressors, like frequent washing, the drying alcohol of hand sanitizers and exposure to harsh elements. Not to mention that hands don’t always get the same TLC we give to our faces. If you’re noticing spots/discoloration, a gaunt, “sunken” appearance and veins looking a bit more prominent, your skin is experiencing thinning and loss of volume.

What You Can Do

Take matters into your own hands to address these issues, and get educated about collagen. Because over time collagen levels begin to decrease, and can be accompanied by skin hollowing out and the appearance of surface lines and wrinkles. Fill out your skincare regime with this great product:

Skindicator: Your Neck is ‘Ringing’

Everything seems to be going along fine and then one day you look in the mirror and say out loud, “what happened to my neck?” Horizontal neck lines - sometimes called “necklace lines” or “rings” - appear as skin loses strength and elasticity. Sometimes it can be accelerated by repetitive motion (like constantly looking down on your phone throughout the day). You might also notice some patchy, ‘crepey’ texture along with those lines.

What You Can Do

Don’t neglect your neck. Stick your neck out with:

TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream

TL Advanced Light Tightening Neck Cream

Tightening Neck Serum Roller

Skindicator: You’re Seeing Your Eyes Differently

No, you’re not seeing things...the shape of your eyes changes as you age. Eyes can become horizontal and less round over time. Combine that with the fact that the skin around your eyes is extremely delicate and withstands years of wear and tear (squinting, pulling and tugging while applying eye makeup, rubbing tired, itchy eyes) and it’s no wonder that you might also see dry, crepey texture, dark circles and fine lines.

What You Can Do

Keep the skin around your eyes visibly healthy and maintain a youthful looking texture. These products will have you seeing eye to eye again:
