Does a Skincare Routine really Smooth Fine Lines?
Some things in life are unavoidable, and aging is one of them. Some people age and others age gracefully, and the difference between them is in their skincare routine (or lack of one).
Fine lines and wrinkles are the inevitable signs of aging, but there are plenty of natural ways to smooth them. Fine lines are superficial and often caused by repetitive facial expressions, sun exposure, and dehydration, while wrinkles are usually deeper and happen because, as we age, our skin reduces the production of collagen and elastin.
The 6 Key Steps in an Anti Aging Skincare Routine
All skincare routines have similar steps that allow your skin to be prepared for your products’ active ingredients and maximize their efficiency. For example, you would only polish a wooden table after cleaning it, right?
Well, you should not apply a serum on skin that is covered in makeup. Because the makeup creates a barrier that stops your skin from absorbing all the skin-loving ingredients the serum has, there are proper ways to care for your skin. But don’t worry, I will walk you through it.
Cleansing: The foundation of a healthy skincare routine
Cleansing is the most essential step in caring for your skin. Our skin gets covered with sweat, dust, pollutants, makeup, and much more. Being the first defense against the outside world, many impurities fall on it, and we must get them off to reduce the risk of irritation or clogged pores. A cleanser designed to reduce fine lines is one that, while it cleanses, it nourishes the skin as well. The Nectar De Rose | Revitalizing Cleansing Oil is my go-to daily cleanser. The rose petals infused in it deliver a natural source of hydration, as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Nectar de Rose
A nourishing oil cleanser formulated with jojoba, argan, olive oil, and rosehip oil to gently clarify and restore the skin without over-drying it for healthy, dewy-looking skin.
Double Cleansing is a technique created by a Korean/Japanese woman to achieve clear skin. The first step is an oil-based cleanser to remove oil-based impurities such as makeup, sebum, or sunscreen. It is then followed by a water-based cleanser to remove water-based impurities such as sweat and pollution. Starting your skincare routine with Nectar de Rose gives your second water-based cleanser a better chance to work its magic. A logical next step would be our , infused with rose essential oil, which not only lends a delicate floral fragrance but also delivers a multitude of benefits to the skin. They work together as if it were magic.
Fleur de Rose
Carefully crafted with a sumptuous combination of natural ingredients, which gently but effectively cleanse the skin without disrupting its natural moisture balance.
Exfoliation: Removing dead skin cells and promoting cell turnover
Exfoliation is a step that should be done between one and three times a week, depending on your skin type. A gentle exfoliation is more than enough, harsh products can irritate and damage the skin. Continuing to take advantage of the great properties that rose has on mature skin, I recommend our Wild Rose & Geranium | Radiating Face Polish. Geranium essential oil helps control breakouts and inflammation, while the exquisite aroma of rose essential oil uplifts the mood and leaves the skin smelling heavenly.
Wild Rose & Geranium
A gentle exfoliating gel infused with rose petals. Peeling particles, extracted from rice grains and sun-dried rose petals, rid the skin of dead cells and impurities.
Toning: Balancing the skin’s pH and preparing it for treatment
When the skin’s pH is balanced, it becomes more receptive to the absorption of serums, moisturizers, and treatments applied afterward. This maximizes the effectiveness of subsequent skincare products. Being a symbol of regeneration, rose water is a great natural ingredient to fight skin aging effectively. Fields of Yarrow’s Bulgarian Rose | Soothing Toner made with Damascus rose water will turn back the clock while making you feel like you are in a spring rose garden.

Its healing action allows it to dry out imperfections quicker, leaving you with healthy skin without blemishes.
Serum: Targeting fine lines and wrinkles with specialized products
Serums are lightweight, highly concentrated skincare products that contain a potent dose of active ingredients. They are formulated to address specific skin concerns and deliver targeted benefits such as reducing the signs of aging. Our C-COMPLEX DROPS|Revitalizing Serum is a natural gift from nature that helps minimize skin cell breakdown, boosts collagen production, and reduces the signs of premature aging for a brighter, smoother, and more youthful complexion.

Sun Protection: Shielding the skin from harmful UV rays
Protecting the skin from harmful UV rays must be done every day. Look for a non-comedogenic sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more if you have sensitive skin. Premature aging is mainly caused by unprotected sun exposure.
Bonus: Eye Care
Taking care of the skin around our eyes must be done with care. This area is more sensitive, and the skin is thinner here. The fine lines and wrinkles around the eye are some of the most visible ones, so a product targeted to reduce them can make a great difference. Ingredients like hibiscus, or “The Botox Plant,” are natural marvels packed with antioxidants. Fields of Yarrow’s Hibiscus & Vitamin C | Brightening Eye Cream is the best product to reduce those fine lines and wrinkles.
