Ageing Skin

The appearance of ageing skin can be reversed without invasive treatments using daily skincare that has scientifically proven results.

 

For example, proper cleansing and exfoliation can smooth the skin surface to decrease pore size and wrinkles within days.

 

Anti-ageing skincare refers to all ingredients that combat skin ageing.

 

The aim of anti-ageing skin care is to preserve skin function and prevent the loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

 

To reverse the signs of skin ageing, four steps are needed:

 

Step 1 - Cleansing

Step 2 - Exfoliation

 

Step 3 -Protection

Step 4 - Treatment

Ageing through the years

20’s

 

Throughout our twenties, environmental damage and exposure to daylight begin to take their toll. Skin cell renewal starts to decline.

 

30’s

 

We will notice our first wrinkles in our thirties as collagen and elastin degrades. The skin may appear uneven and dull.

 

40’s

 

We will notice more prominent signs of ageing during our forties, including dark spots and dullness. Our skin becomes thinner and dehydrated.

 

50’s

 

From our fifties onwards, the skin will continue to develop wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation. The skin's protective barrier weakens, which leads to sensitivity and dehydration.

Skincare Steps for ageing Skin

Skin Cleansing

Proper cleansing with lukewarm water is essential in looking after your skin.

 

Cleansing removes natural oils, sweat, dirt and sebum. Cleansing should not irritate or dry out your skin. A gentle cleanser is imperative.

 

Surfactants in cleansers bind dirt and oil. But they can also irritate. As can the other components. Newer cleansers have fortunately markedly improved.

 

In addition, medications such as salicylic acid and BPO can be added to reduce pore size and smooth the skin.

Skin exfoliation

This step gives the most immediate improvement in the appearance of the skin.

 

Exfoliation removes the outer layer of the skin and can be mechanical (such as masks) or chemical.

 

Chemical exfoliants remove the surface skin cells such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids and retinoids.
