Anti-aging is a really popular topic amongst men and women, and the truth is, you don't need the next miracle product. You just a good skincare routine and healthy lifestyle choices.
ONE: NOURISH YOUR SKIN The skin is the body’s largest organ and it defends us against the environment. The skin on our faces is constantly exposed and requires a little help to stay in top shape. Protecting and hydrating your skin is crucial for healthy aging; topical antioxidants, in particular, are excellent for protecting the skin from free-radical damage that causes the signs of aging. Use a good quality serum and moisturizer daily, hydrate according to your specific skin type – lightweight textures for oily and combination skins, and rich textures for dry skin types. If you're unsure of your skin type please get in contact with us we can help.
TWO: BE CONSISTENT Giving your skin regular attention will pay off in the future. If you’re busy, stick to the basics of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing daily, exfoliating twice a week; keep your skincare on your bathroom vanity to remind you to use them. Alter your routine by adding in a mask and serum regularly.
THREE: BE KIND TO YOUR SKIN Over time, the way we apply and remove our makeup and skincare can cause wrinkles and sagging. Use a light touch when applying skincare, and be as gentle when removing your makeup. Avoid upsetting the skin’s natural barrier with over-cleansing.
FOUR: EAT THE RAINBOW Eating a variety of vegetables and fruits provides a range of antioxidants, essential for healthy skin and graceful aging. Don't forget to include plenty of healthy fat in your diet! Think avocado, oily fish, olive oil, nuts, and seeds.
As well as focusing on fresh produce, aim to reduce your sugar and alcohol intake. Sugar ages the skin prematurely, causing collagen to break down and wrinkles begin to show.
FIVE: REDUCE STRESS Your ace muscles hold a massive amount of tension, especially during times of stress. As we get older, our life starts to show on our faces. Make stress management and a priority, not only for your looks but your ongoing health. Give yourself a gentle facial massage or a head massage, find a quiet place to rest while your face mask drys, take a walk, take time out to sit, and have a cup of herbal tea.
