No matter what age, it’s disheartening to look in the mirror and notice new wrinkles, frown lines or just drier and duller skin than you remember. Unfortunately, this is all part of our natural skin ageing process, normally beginning in our mid-20s.
This is a continuous process where collagen production slows and elastin (which enables our skin to snap back into place) has less spring. Dead skin cells do not shed as quickly, and the turnover of new cells decreases. But don’t book in the Botox yet! Thankfully, there are a number of ways you can reduce (and prevent) these signs on your skin for an anti-ageing effect, starting with the right skincare routine and active ingredients such as retinol and peptides.
What is causing my skin to age?
Many factors can lead to premature ageing and contribute to the speed at which our skin ages, including diet, genetics, sun exposure and smoking, amongst other things. Research shows there are two distinct types of ageing – intrinsic (internal) ageing from the genes we inherit, and extrinsic (external) ageing, caused by environmental factors such as photodamage from the sun, a bad diet or the wrong skin care.
What is the best skincare for anti-ageing?
If you’re looking to build an anti-ageing skincare regimen, whether it’s at the first signs of ageing or at a more mature skin stage, you’ll need to look for proven active ingredients in high enough percentages to actually make a difference, set in biomimetic bases to ensure these ingredients are actually transported into your skin cells to do their job!
Key ingredients you’ll be looking for are Retinol, peptides, Vitamin C, niacinamide, plant-based EGF, hyaluronic acid and moisturising natural oils for hydration. On top of this, it’s imperative that you’re applying a SPF 30+ daily to prevent further signs of aging. Ensure you’re cleansing your face each night with a non-drying cleanser, and exfoliating once or twice a week, with a gentle scrub or lactic acid. Moisturising masks can help with giving you a hydrated, dewy glow.
