If you happily spend money each week on having your hair or nails done, how would you feel about spending that money on your skin instead? What are we trying to say? Well, we aren’t knocking a nice set of well-kept nails or a great haircut, these things are definitely on our agenda too, but so is looking great when we are 70. If we don’t start investing in our skin now we could come to regret not putting our resources where they were needed.

How does that saying go? Prevention is better than cure?

Looking after your skin now will ensure you aren’t left wishing you’d done something sooner. It is much harder to turn back the clock 10 or 20 years down the line. We spend a lot of time researching and reading about skincare, we’ve come to the conclusion that, yes, there are a handful of people who have great genes and look great in their 70s without really trying, for the rest of us, there’s some work needed if we want to have skin we are happy with at 70.

What can we do then?

There are some small habits you can start now that will put you on the path to great skin in your later years. Here they are:

  1. Exfoliate
  2. Moisturise
  3. Drink lots of water
  4. Wear sunscreen – ALWAYS!

Ingraining these habits in your life will help to keep your skin in great condition. We also have a few treatments available for you to consider.

Microdermabrasion – The ultimate exfoliating treatment

Microdermabrasion treatment uses tiny exfoliating crystals and a powerful vacuum action to both resurface the skin and stimulate the blood flow, encouraging the skin to rejuvenate itself and produce collagen and elastin. A course of treatment followed by a monthly maintenance will keep skin in optimum condition. Find your nearest therapist here.

Radio Frequency

Dubbed the ‘Facelift’ facial this treatment uses radio frequency energy to heat the tissue causing a tightening and lifting of the skin. This non-surgical facial is a great alternative to fillers and injectables so if you don’t like needles but do like results, this could be the perfect treatment for you.

IPL Photorejuvenation

A SkinBase IPL Photorejuvenation facial removes the effects of premature ageing caused by repeat exposure to UV. This non-invasive treatment will help reduce wrinkles, redness, melasma and improve the texture and appearance of your skin for a more youthful appearance. Just make sure you start protecting skin with a high sun protection factor every day.
