Regenerating cream, a type of moisturizer, may help reduce the signs of aging. The ingredients in regenerating cream vary depending on the manufacturer, but the goal is the same -- to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and hydrate and plump the skin. Most companies recommend leaving regenerating cream on overnight, since these intensive moisturizers tend to be thick, but you can also use it in the morning if your skin feels dehydrated. Regenerating cream may also be called anti-aging cream.

Things You'll Need

  • Makeup remover or olive oil
  • Cotton pads
  • Facial cleanser
  • Washcloth
  • Towel

Take off your makeup with makeup remover and a cotton pad. If you don't have makeup remover, try using olive oil.

Wash your face with a gentle exfoliating cleanser or regular facial cleanser and a soft washcloth. Lather the cleanser with warm water in your hands or on the cloth and massage your skin in a circular motion. Splash your skin with cool water to remove the cleanser and pat your face dry with a clean, soft towel. Follow with toner if desired.

Dip your finger into the regenerating cream and rub it between the fingertips of both hands.

Massage the regenerating cream into your face and neck with a circular motion, working upward from your neck to your hairline. Work the cream into your jawline and eye area, including your brows, being careful to avoid getting the cream into your eyes.

Sleep with the regenerating cream on overnight and wash it off the next morning.

Tips & Warnings

  • Although you can apply regenerating cream in the morning, you should always use facial sunscreen when going outdoors. A lighter moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30 may be all you need for daytime if you've used regenerating cream at night.
