HOW DOES OUR SKIN AGE?
The first signs of ageing can start in the late 20’s when the skin begins to lose moisture and the surface barrier becomes compromised. There are a number of influences that can upset the surface skin barrier, and when the skin is not protected it can be exposed to factors such as UV rays, pollution and free radicals which cause dehydration and damage to collagen fibres. This eventually leads to the appearance of surface lines and wrinkles.
WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT FIRST SIGNS OF AGEING?
- Protect the skin with a broad spectrum sunscreen daily
- Follow a good skincare regime – Cleanse, Care, Protect, SPF
- Exfoliate the skin twice weekly to increase cellular turnover
- Pay particular attention to delicate areas that can age faster – eyes, lips, neck
