There are a lot of anti-aging tips around, but most are geared at preventing fine lines, wrinkles, and sun spots before they happen. Which is great if you are in your late twenties or early thirties, but what if you are already starting to visibly notice the signs of aging? Fear not, there are a lot of things you can do to treat existing signs of aging and reveal younger looking skin. Here are our favorite tips and products for mature skin.
- Start with the right cleanser. You may have been able to buy cleansers from the supermarket when you were younger, but now it’s time to take your skincare seriously and invest in more effective, concentrated, and richer products. Switching to a rich cleansing balm like REN No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm will take away the day’s makeup and grime while softening and pampering your skin.
- Brighten up. You have probably noticed that your skin has lost a little of its sparkle as the years have gone by. Cell turnover slows down as we get older which, coupled with sun spots or rough texture, can make your complexion look dull and sallow. Regularly exfoliating your skin will remove dead skin cells and reveal brighter, fresher skin. Try a facial peel, which gently exfoliates the skin without the harshness of a mechanical scrub. Filorga Age – Peel is a two-step peel that refines skin texture, brightens dark spots and smooths out wrinkles for professional results at home.
- Use technology to your advantage. Gone are the days when a surgeon’s knife was the only way to look younger. Today’s technology allows you to achieve clinical results without even leaving your home. Apart from surface issues such as wrinkles or hyperpigmentation, aging skin can also lose its volume and muscle tone. The Slendertone Face for Women was specially developed to rebuild muscle volume and lift the face for a younger appearance. It couldn’t be easier to use, just apply the pads to your face to gently but effectively exercise them for a natural ‘facelift’ and improved firmness.
- Don’t forget your neck. We often forget the neck and décolletage when it comes to applying our products, which is a very big mistake as the skin on the neck is quite thin and shows the signs of aging before many other areas. Elemis Pro-Collagen Lifting Treatment Neck and Bust smooths, firms and lifts the skin on the neck and chest, while increasing skin elasticity and reducing wrinkled skin in just 28 days.
- Take time for yourself. Stress can cause your skin to look older, so make sure you take time to relax and always try to get a good night’s sleep. A relaxing bubble bath before bed will ease your worries away and help you drift off into slumber land. Try a soothing bath essence like Dr. Hauschka Lavender Calming Bath Essence to calm and relieve any tension.
