5 ways to reduce premature skin aging

Written By: Ailsa Watson

We can’t stop the clock but we can prevent signs of ageing. 

It’s never too early to start using anti-ageing skincare. We thought we would put together some of our anti-ageing skincare tips, as well as some of our products to help prevent signs of ageing.

Wash with a gentle cleanser

Cleansing is one of the most important steps in any skincare routine. At the end of each day it is crucial to cleanse away any makeup, pollutants and bacteria that your skin has accumulated throughout the day. This will ensure that the rest of your skincare products can work effectively.

Our Blue Volcanic Stone Purifying & Antioxidising Cleansing Gel is a mild, non-drying gel, this aims to effortlessly eliminate excess oil, dirt and make up without leaving skin feeling over-exposed. With a cocktail of antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant extracts, the Blue Volcanic Stone Purifying & Antioxidising Cleansing Gel helps prevent breakouts and soothe irritation. The perfect first step in your skincare regime.

Introduce Retinoids to your skincare routine

As we get older, our skin can begin losing collagen, which is responsible for keeping our skin young and supple. The best way to fight against this is Retinoids. Retinol is one of the most popular retinoids out there. The benefits of retinol include fighting acne, reducing wrinkles and dark spots, and helping to brighten dull skin.

Our Hi-Retinol Restoring and Lifting Serum is infused with powerful regenerating ingredients for flawless skin. It helps to treat oily, overworked and weakened skin. 

Combining signature ingredients including Retinol and Niacinamide, commonly known as Vitamin B3. Retinol helps visibly increase firmness whilst aiming to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, significantly improving uneven skin tone for a mattified complexion. Vitamin B3 aims to visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness and a weakened skin surface.

Upgrade your SPF usage

SPF is the number one way to prevent signs of ageing. And no, it’s not just for summer! We recommend using an SPF of 20 or above, as this can help to maintain a healthy complexion and prevent age spots and discoloration. 

Our Ceramides Soothing & Protective Day Cream SPF 20 works to prevent irreparable DNA damage in order to maintain your skin’s youthful bloom. With a featherweight texture, this non-greasy Day moisturiser, formulated with SPF 20, works to leave no trace, absorb in seconds to quench skin’s thirst and create an impenetrable veil which seals moisture and nutrients in, aiming to deflect harmful effects of pollutants and prevent loss of firmness.

Exfoliate Weekly

Shedding of dead skin cells can lead to dull skin and rough patches. Introducing an exfoliator once a week can help to remove buildup, leading to a brighter complexion.

Our Gentle Rose Beautifying Face Exfoliant is enriched with groundbreaking ingredients to help skin appear smoother and softer, and aiming to help ingredients penetrate the skin's surface 20% better. 

Harbouring intensely hydrating, soothing and anti-oxidising properties, Rose aims to lessen redness, skin irritation and the appearance of wrinkles. Enriched with skin softening, smoothing and healing properties, Vitamin B5 contributes to foster moisture retention by absorbing moisture from the air.

Be Gentle

Love your skin and be kind! Don’t handle your skin roughly or rub abrasively. This is a simple way to prevent any irritation, inflammation and signs of aging.

We love the dab and tap method! Tugging and pulling at your skin, especially around your eye area can lead to premature wrinkles.
