As we age our skin changes. It loses collagen and elastin which can leave it looking thin, dull and less plump than it did in our younger years. We also begin to notice fine lines and wrinkles creeping up on us, and our skin begins to droop. But it doesn’t have to be this way, here are our top tips for anti-ageing skin!
Diet & Supplements
It’ll come as no surprise that our diet plays a huge part in our skins health. Eating the right foods and taking the necessary supplements can really help enhance our skin. We recommend adding Omega 3 into your diet as it is great for keeping cells strong, helping to maintain a youthful appearance. Vitamin D is also advised as an anti-ageing supplement as it promotes skin cell turnover, which in turn keeps fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
Exfoliation is key when it comes to anti-ageing, as it works to remove the dead skin cells. If you do not exfoliate, the dead skin cells soak up all the products you apply, and therefore do not penetrate through your skin. If you want a super exfoliation then we recommend trying our Jet Facial. Using hydradermabrasion it works to remove dead skin cells and impurities from the skin, whilst also reducing fine lines and wrinkles as well as hydrating the skin in the process. Leaving you feeling super refreshed and rejuvenated.
It goes without saying that a great skin care routine can have drastic effects on skin. Ensuring you cleanse and moisturise each morning and evening is vital. However, another anti-ageing skin care product that should be in everyone’s routine is Retinol. A form of Vitamin A, retinol works to diminish visible signs of ageing, including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving uneven skin tone and minimising the appearance of pores. If you haven’t got a retinol in your regime, we recommend trying SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0. Formulated with the highest concentration of retinol, it’ll have your skin looking younger before your know it. Another item everyone needs in there morning skin care routine is an SPF. Even when the sun is not visible there are still harmful UV rays, which can have extremely ageing affects, including wrinkles and pigmentation. When it comes to SPF, DermaQuest SheerZinc SPF30 is a firm favourite of ours, the light weight formula absorbs quickly without leaving a white residue.
If you’re suffering from loose, sagging skin then our 3D SkinLift by Ultraformer could be the perfect treatment for you. Using high intensity focused ultrasound it works to instantly tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production in the weeks to follow, leaving you with a plumper, more youthful appearance.
As well as the obvious lines and wrinkles, pigmentation is another big issue for ageing skin. We have a range of depigmentation peels that will work to eliminate any hyperpigmentation and brown spots, leaving you with a much more even skin tone.
If lost facial volume is one of your biggest concerns then we’d recommend trying Dermal Fillers. They work to smooth out wrinkles and have a wonderful plumping effect. When used alongside Anti-Wrinkle Injectables, which work to relax the facial muscles, preventing lines and wrinkles from forming, they can have great anti-ageing effects.
