Fine lines, wrinkles, crows feet?
When we’re done here they won’t stand a chance!
You’ve heard it before but we’ll say it again, the quickest, most foolproof way to prevent ageing is sunscreen. Apply a broad spectrum formula that protects against ageing UVA and burning UVB rays.
Schedule a scrub
Whether you write it down or set it as a reminder, a weekly exfoliation is a win-win in the battle against fine lines. Not only does it promote cell renewal (leaving you with a smoother, healthier complexion) it also makes skin more receptive to the active anti-ageing ingredients in your skincare.
Fine lines not so fine? If you’re looking for a quick, non-invasive fix, try targeted line-filling products that are packed with humectants like hyaluronic acid – they attract water and temporarily fill in fine lines and wrinkles, giving you a smoother appearance. Looking for a more long-term solution? Speak to a trained aesthetician at a Skin Renewal Clinic near you about dermal fillers.
Make friends with antioxidants
Say what? Antioxidants are ingredients like green tea, retinol, vitamin C and idebenone that fight against the nasty free radicals that cause ageing.
Go to bed
When you call it a night, add an extra pillow under your head. The elevation helps prevent fluid from settling under your eyes, which can cause puffiness.
Extra Tip: Had an extra late night and don’t want others to know about it? Apply a small amount of cooling eye cream or gel with a tapping motion to your eye area (avoid rubbing it in). This summer, beat the heat and keep your skin cream jar in the fridge for an extra cooling treat.
