The Seven Signs of Skin Aging
Having a healthy complexion starts with knowing your skin’s strengths and priorities and recognizing what your skin needs. If you’re looking to take proper care of your skin, learning about the seven signs of aging can help prevent future damage and set your skin up for success. Vichy’s Skin Consult AI scans your skin for these aging skin concerns and then provides solutions for how to achieve a brighter, more youthful-looking complexion.
Fine lines and wrinkles
One of the telltale signs of aging skin is fine lines and wrinkles, but they’re a natural part of getting older. As we age, skin begins to lose collagen and elastin, both of which are responsible for giving it structure. When we begin to lose that support, skin starts to wrinkle. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun, pollution, genetics and repeated facial expressions all contribute to the forming of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin Consult AI looks for this specific sign of aging in the skin and recommends a personalized skincare protocol that will work to minimize fine lines and help slow down deeper wrinkles from forming over time.
Anti-aging skincare to try for fine lines and wrinkles: Vichy Liftactiv Supreme H.A. Wrinkle Filler and Vichy Liftactiv Pure Retinol Serum are two bestselling serums that can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and boost collagen production in the skin.
As previously mentioned, collagen and elastin provide support and structure to the skin; they also play a huge role in how firm the skin is. When these protein levels begin decreasing (we typically start losing both when we’re in our 20s), skin becomes less plump, which causes sagging. Skin firmness is another sign of aging skin that is recognized during a Skin Consult AI session.
Anti-aging skincare to try for skin firmness: Vichy Liftactiv Collagen Specialist is an anti-aging moisturizer that’s rich in bio-peptides, vitamin C and Vichy volcanic water to brighten and firm skin.
The skin around the eyes can be up to 10 times thinner than the skin on the rest of the face. This is typically why the first signs of skin aging occur around this area. Because this skin is so delicate, it often requires targeted skincare products to help tackle individual concerns such as puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles and dark circles.
Anti-aging skincare to try for the eye contour: Vichy Mineral 89 Eyes is an ultra-gentle daily eye serum that contains Vichy’s mineralizing thermal water, hyaluronic acid and caffeine to strengthen and plump the skin around the eye.
Dull, lacklustre skin is another common sign of aging skin. When we’re young, our skin has a gorgeous glow (thanks to high levels of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid and proteins). As we get older and our moisture levels decrease—and our skin is exposed to more UV damage and other external aggressors—we begin to lose that radiant finish. Skin Consult AI scans the skin for radiance levels and can then advise which skincare products are recommended to restore that luminosity.
Anti-aging skincare to try to restore skin radiance: Vichy Liftactiv Supreme 15% Vitamin C Serum is formulated with superstar antioxidant pure vitamin C, vitamin E and pine polyphenols to help reverse oxidative damage and dullness and restore that healthy glow.
Another common aging skin concern? Hyperpigmentation. A condition that causes skin to be darker in certain areas (known as dark spots), hyperpigmentation occurs when damaged cells start to produce more melanin, which is what gives skin its colour. Dark spots are often caused by exposure to UV damage and other environmental aggressors but can also be the result of hormonal changes in the body. They are also often also referred to as age spots or liver spots.
Anti-aging skincare to help tackle dark spots: Vichy Liftactiv Specialist B3 Dark Spots Serum contains a blend of superpowered actives including niacinamide, glycolic acid and vitamin CG to act on the skin’s surface as well as its deeper layers to minimize dark spots.
While breakouts are often associated with the hormonal changes that pop up in our teen years, pimples can be a constant for many people who have aging skin. A result of hormones and levels of oil produced by the skin, pimples—including white heads, blackheads and cystic acne—can arise at any time and at any age. Vichy’s Skin Consult AI skincare diagnostic tool recognizes blemishes in the skin as one of the seven signs of skin aging.
Anti-aging skincare to help curb blemishes: Packed with concentrated dermatological actives, Vichy Normaderm BHA Peeling Serum works to target inflammation, pimples and pore size. Its blend of salicylic and glycolic acids gently exfoliates the skin, removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores for a more even skin texture.
Whether its due to skin sensitivities, sun damage or hot flashes, redness is a common skin concern for people of all ages. What typically presents as a ruddy complexion or red blotches in specific areas, redness in skin can be a sign of irritation or inflammation. Skin Consult AI assesses signs of redness in the skin and provides tried, tested and true skincare recommendations to help soothe and calm any areas of redness in aging skin.
Anti-aging skincare to help minimize redness: Providing 72 hours of lightweight hydration, Vichy Mineral 89 Moisture Boosting Cream is a non-irritating, fragrance-free moisturizer that’s safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to re-plump and boost ceramide production, leaving skin feeling soothed and protected.
