Understanding How to Prevent Wrinkles
As we age, it is part of the natural process for the skin on our face to lose some of its youthful brightness and firmness. Fortunately, the combination of small lifestyle changes with cutting-edge skincare science can prevent those premature wrinkles.
What Causes Our Skin to Age?
As we age, it’s natural for skin to become fragile and lose elasticity. But why? Natural oils and fat in the deep layers of the skin both decreases, causing skin to become dry and loose, creating lines and wrinkles. Though these body processes can’t be controlled, there are other aging factors we can control.
Both external aggressors – like sun exposure and pollution – and internal aggressors – like a poor diet, stress, or lack of exercise – can amplify the natural effects of aging. But they can be changed. And while a healthier lifestyle can have a positive impact on signs of aging, a good anti-wrinkle cream and anti-wrinkle serum and anti-wrinkle eye cream can help repair skin damage and prevent further wrinkles. Let’s take a look.
From Biotherm’s Blue Therapy range, the Blue Retinol Night Serum, Blue Pro-Retinol Multi Correct Cream, and Blue Pro-Retinol Eye Cream work to reverse damage and signs of aging to reveal more youthful-looking, luminous skin.
Combat sagging skin with a skincare routine that includes Blue Therapy Red Algae Uplift for day, and Blue Therapy Night Cream. Combined with gentle yet effective Blue Pro-Retinol Eye Cream, this routine restores plumpness and firmness to dry, aging skin.
To focus on adding nutrition and glow, the Blue Therapy Revitalize Day Cream, Blue Therapy Revitalize Night Cream, and the Blue Therapy Accelerated Serum combination is the routine that intensely revitalizes and restores youthfulness to skin.
Own It: Making the Choices that Protect Your Skin
There are a few simple choices that can help prevent wrinkles from showing up and getting worse.
- Avoid the sun whenever possible, especially by wearing a hat and sunglasses, and using a moisturizing sunscreen. Ultraviolet radiation can speed up the aging process by breaking down connective tissue in the skin, namely collagen and elastin. Staying out of the sun is a simple way to help prevent wrinkles.
- Stop smoking! Most likely due to smoking's negative effect on the skin's collagen, smoking speeds up the aging process within your skin, causing wrinkles. Without the natural buoyancy of collagen, skin tends to sag and wrinkle.
- Try to notice what facial expressions are typical for you and make an effort to avoid making them. For example, wear sunglasses to avoid squinting in the sun. Constantly contracting the same facial muscles can contribute to those wrinkles and lines.
- Maintain a well-balanced diet. Studies show that eating fresh vegetables and fruit can help prevent the cellular skin damage that leads to early wrinkles. On the other hand, eating refined carbohydrates and sugars can accelerate this damage. Your choice!
- Try to exercise at least four days a week. Moderate exercise improves circulation, giving your skin a healthier and more youthful appearance.
- Use anti-aging skin care products that work with, boost, repair, and regenerate the skin's natural, healthy properties.
Biotherm Anti-Aging Skin Care: Why and How It Works
Life Plankton™ is the powerful natural microorganism with the unique ability to stimulate skin regeneration that lies at the heart of all Biotherm anti-aging products and routines.
Super concentrated in Life Plankton Elixir, in this bestselling anti-aging serum it’s combined with Vitamin Cg to repair, recharge and reveal luminous, healthy, and smooth skin.
Recently, Biotherm Scientists discovered the power of Life Plankton™ to increase the efficacy of Pro-Retinol 1.5 times over. Pro-Retinol is a next-generation form of Retinol that makes even the sensitive eye skin smoother and more even-toned. In Blue Pro-Retinol Eye Cream, Pro-Retinol is combined with caffeine to brighten dark circles as well as reduce wrinkles, crow’s feet, and sagging eye contour skin. The addition of Life Plankton boosts all the active ingredients in the Blue Therapy range, amplifying their power to heal and rejuvenate skin. Skin is left with a bright, youthful healthiness and renewed firmness.
What's the difference between retinol and pro-retinol?
Retinol has long been the gold standard in anti-aging skincare, but recently Pro-Retinol has taken its place as the newest gold standard in anti-aging actives.
Because Retinol is unstable, changing in odor and color, it has not been advised for use on sensitive skin. In addition, it requires a period of tolerance, while the skin adapts, and can cause redness and irritation.
Pro-Retinol is a more stable form of Retinol, making it comfortable for all skin types, and especially for sensitive skin or the delicate skin around the eyes. How does it work? It breaks down into retinol and palmitic acid when applied to skin, which allows for the progressive release of retinol into the skin, rather than all at once. So, skin doesn’t need to get used to this gentler form of retinol. It’s still highly effective, but much softer on the skin, offering greater efficacy in less time. Retinol is still recommended for night use only, but Pro-Retinol can be used for a morning or evening routine. And unlike Retinol, its gentler approach means that sun exposure is less of an issue – although we still recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen, like Biotherm Urban UV Defense.
Finding your Power Trio in Your Anti-Aging Skin Care Routine
A daily skin care routine designed to prevent wrinkles and repair aging damage generally involves an anti-wrinkle eye cream, an anti-wrinkle serum, a cream for wrinkles, and UV protection.

The Best Eye Creams for Wrinkles
Why is Blue Pro Retinol Eye Cream seen as one of the best eye creams for wrinkles? Because it activates Life Plankton™, Pro-Retinol and caffeine to eradicate dark circles that can form under the eyes, as well as being rigorously tested under ophthalmological control. It also works to prevent wrinkles in order to reveal youthful, luminous skin.
