Anti-Ageing Skincare Tips
It’s inescapable, the ageing process comes upon us all and of course it’s completely natural and we all age in different ways. Everything from your genes to the food you eat play a role in the health and appearance of the age of your skin. While you might not be able to stop it completely you can control how the ageing process runs its course. There’s much to be said and already written on anti-ageing but sometimes it’s good to get back to basics, so we’ve put together just a few essential tips to put you in the driving seat of the anti-ageing process.
Evelina firmly believes as with any skincare treatment, that controlling the anti-ageing process starts with what you put into your body.
Make sure you’re consuming lots of vitamins from fresh fruit and vegetables that are packed with antioxidants.
Fruits packed with vitamin C should be high on your list as this vitamin is essential in the production of collagen. Bell peppers, oranges and grapefruits are all high in vitamin C. Watercress is also another great food packed with vitamin C , which also helps with fighting harmful free radicals and blueberries are your best friend as they contain vitamins C and A. This superfood helps combat sun damage, controlling the body’s inflammatory response and reducing the loss of collagen
Moisturizing is essential to anti-ageing as it feeds moisture back into the skin helping it maintain its elasticity, so hydrating by drinking lots of is essential for skin and your body’s overall functioning. Water is the ultimate moisturizer!
Anti-ageing skincare routine
Cleanse. As is so often the case, start by cleansing your face. To enable the anti-ageing products to do their best work, from promoting cell regeneration to locking in moisture, you need to cleanse your skin to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. Use a gentle cleanser twice a day such as the AUVA Cleansing Milk With Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter, which cleanses without drying. Avoid cleansers containing drying agents such as alcohol.
Exfoliate. Exfoliate twice a week to remove debris and dead skin cells and allow your moisturiser to penetrate deeper. There’s always a temptation to rub too hard. Try using The All Natural Exfoliator, which gently exfoliates without introducing any unwanted chemicals. This exfoliator is also ideal for stimulating cell regeneration as well as removing old dead cells.
Moisturize. Moisturizing is essential for replenishing and locking in moisture that helps increase the elasticity of your skin, a loss of elasticity underlines the development of wrinkles. The Skin Chemists Wild Caviar Facial Moisturiser infuses the power of caviar, which is full of nutrients and antioxidants that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with smoother skin.
Retinol. Retinols are on the forefront of anti-ageing products. They contain vitamin A, an essential vitamin for the health of your skin. We recommend one of the very best retinols on the market, the Retinol Skin Repair Serum, which works to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and regenerates your skin cells. This retinol will leave you with a brighter and healthier looking complexion
Finally, minimize sun exposure. The sun can dry out your skin leading to the faster onset of wrinkles and duller looking skin. Make sure to use a natural sun screen.
