Time stops for no man (or woman) and unfortunately that means you might wake up one day and wonder what happened to your youthful complexion. Here at BasharaCare, we believe that it’s never too late or too early to start thinking about anti-aging, and a great skincare routine is the first step.
Since aging can mean so many different skin issues, we thought we’d tackle the most common ones for you today.
Fine lines and wrinkles: Definitely one of the most common signs of aging, fine lines and wrinkles really tend to creep up on you, seemingly appearing out of nowhere! Microdermabrasion, usually performed in a dermatologist’s office, is a great treatment for these. It uses round crystals to gently smooth the surface of the skin and stimulate collagen production. If you’d prefer an at-home treatment, Exuviance Rejuvinating Complex contains retinol which will slowly exfoliate to reveal fresher, smoother skin.
Sunspots: Living in a gorgeous, sunny place like the Emirates seems like a dream, but having year-long sunshine also has its downsides; like sunspots. Sunspots are little dark spots that occur from sun damage. Luckily, these can be faded by using products containing hydroquinone or Vitamin C.
Sagging skin: Oh, that cruel, cruel gravity! Along with keeping us grounded, gravity also has an effect on our skin as we age. To be fair, it’s not just gravity that causes sagging skin. Genetics and UV exposure also play a part. To fight the effects of all of these, use a plumping treatment. Dermalogica’s Extra Firming Booster was created specifically to tighten and plump up the skin.
As with most skin concerns, having a proper diet and getting some exercise can really help. A proper diet will ensure that your skin gets all the nutrients and vitamins it needs, but if yours isn’t perfect, you can always try taking a multi-vitamin. Exercise is also beneficial because it gets the circulation going, making sure that your skin cells get all the oxygen and blood supply they need to repair themselves. So get ready to hit the gym, ladies!
