5 Age Management Tips that work for your Skin

//5 Age Management Tips that work for your Skin

Getting older is inevitable, looking older is not.

There are many ways you can restore, refresh, and rejuvenate your skin without invasive skin procedures.

So, let’s start with your major skin concern…

  • fine lines
  • uneven skin tone
  • loss of firmness
  • dull skin
  • sun damage

You can improve these concerns with a homecare program that includes booster serums with proven age management ingredients.

  1. Achieve Even Skin Tone

There are many causes to uneven skin tone and it certainly goes hand in hand with ageing and sun exposure, especially if you don’t apply sunscreen daily. Fortunately, there are ingredients that can make an impressive, noticeable difference. Look for concentrated doses of ingredients proven to brighten dull skin, increase radiance, and refine skin. One of the best ingredients to address all of those issues. Vitamin C!

  1. Reduce Fine Lines

Skin loses its youthful firm, lifted appearance primarily due to age and unprotected sun exposure (wearing an SPF 30+ is a must). Experts around the world know that Retinol (Vitamin A) is the undisputed superhero anti-ageing ingredient.

Retinol works is by increasing collagen and Hyaluronic production in the skin. This helps increase volume in the skin, which in turn helps to plump out fine lines and wrinkles.

Retinol also regulates the growth and development of skin cell, increasing cell turnover which can help to refine dry, dehydrated, or rough skin. Retinol is often recommended in targeting other skin concerns such as age spots, acne and photodamaged skin, as it helps regulate the formation of excess skin cells around follicles (which can lead to acne) and inhibits UV-B stimulated pigment formation on the skin surface.

  1. Smooth Roughened Skin

Exfoliate for the smoothest skin possible with a daily application of a leave-on AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) or BHA (beta hydroxy acid, also known as salicylic acid) exfoliant. A daily AHA is best if your concerns are rough surface skin, crepey skin, and/or loss of firmness.

These exfoliants gradually, gently, and without skin-distressing abrasion, naturally remove built-up layers of dead skin to reveal an unbelievably smoother, more radiant complexion.

A daily BHA is ideal for dealing with clogged pores and those stubborn, tiny, hard, white bumps that occur primarily on your cheekbones but can show up in other areas too. It is even suitable for milia-prone skin.

If you have blackheads, acne, or enlarged pores a combination of Mandelic Acid (AHA) and Salicylic Acid (BHA) will help improve the appearance of open pores.

  1. Results for the Eye Area

It’s true that no product can completely get rid of fine lines or puffiness around the eye area. However, you can make it look better and improve the appearance of the dry, dull, flaky skin that’s sagging around your eye area. An extremely emollient cream loaded with skin-replenishing ingredients will temporarily plump and brighten skin and give a tired eye area the moisture it needs to look supple, smooth, and young again.

  1. And finally, the best tip of all…

The solutions to your skin concerns and slowing down premature ageing are only as good as practising sun-smart behaviour. The path to smoother, younger-looking skin is paved with daily broad-spectrum sun protection. Without this core step, nothing else you do to help diminish signs of ageing can give you the long-term results you’re seeking.

That’s because even the best products and ingredients cannot overcome the type of damage the sun does to your skin. And that also applies to injectables such as Botox and Dermal fillers.

Adding these ingredients singularly or in combination to your skincare routine pulls everything together and, with daily use, can visibly improve signs of ageing.
