Our most powerful anti-ageing solution
Shopping for skincare can be an overwhelming task, especially when so many brands and products promise to do the same thing. This can result in people buying products that won’t actually work for their specific skin type, or worse again, make their skin condition worse. It’s never a good idea to copy someone else’s skincare routine because everyone’s skincare requirements are different. In saying that, when it comes to general skin health, experts have said there are 3 main products we all need in our skincare routines, Vitamin C, Retinol and Sunscreen. A combination of these products helps to protect your skin from environmental and UV damage while giving your skin the necessary ingredients required to continue producing collagen, helping to maintain a youthful complexion for as long as possible.
Let’s discuss Vitamin C…
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, meaning it protects our skin from free radical and environmental damage, helping to prevent oxidative stress and premature ageing. Our skin also requires Vitamin C for the production of collagen, helping to maintain our skin elasticity and prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Pigmentation or uneven skin tone? Vitamin C also helps to fade discoloration, helping to promote a more even skin tone. Vitamin C is also an excellent anti-inflammatory and helps to promote wound healing, improving skin texture. Always look for Vitamin C is the form of ascorbic acid, the more potent type, and make sure the percentage is between 15%-20% to ensure efficiency. Vitamin C should be used every morning and applied to cleansed skin before moisturisers and sunscreens.
Why use Retinol?
Retinol is thought to be the best non injectable form of anti-ageing as it stimulates collagen production, keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Did you know Retinol is also excellent for acne? Retinol increases skin cell turnover, which helps to keep pores unclogged, less clogged pores means less breakouts. And finally. Retinols ‘exfoliation’ effect means it’s a powerhouse for helping to brighten dull skin and to shed off discolouration, promoting a brighter more even skin tone. Retinol should be used in the evening on cleansed skin. It can be used alongside a moisturiser and it is essential to wear sunscreen when using a retinoid as it can make your skin photo sensitive.
And Finally, Sun Protection…
Experts say that if we just used sunscreen from day 1 we would prevent years of premature ageing and skin damage. The sun is the number 1 cause of ageing skin, so there is no point investing in money into skincare products and treatments if we are not going to protect our skin from harmful UV rays. Nothing looks as good in your 50s as sunscreen in your 20s.
