Here at SkinBase, we’re forever looking at how we can banish the dreaded onset of fine lines and wrinkles. Here are our top tips and minor routine changes.
Not wearing sun cream
If you ask, friends, family and colleagues, the general consensus of opinion is that fine lines and wrinkles are unavoidable. How wrong can they be? In fact, up to 90 per cent of visible ageing is caused by repeated sun damage. Whilst spending a long day in the sun won’t immediately show the dreaded fine lines and wrinkles, they build up over many years, arguably makes the effects even worse. At SkinBase, we are firm believers that prevention is the best form of protection. That’s right ladies and gents, apply sun cream every. single. day!
Cut down on sugar
Sugary drinks, chocolate, sweets, ice cream – whilst we usually associate overindulging sugary treats with a little extra wobble, if you knew they are also to blame for fine lines and wrinkles, would you cut down? When the blood sugar level is sky high, the collagen in your skin becomes damaged. This process is called glycation. Once the skin is affected, the collagen hardens, which creates sagging and wrinkles.
Squinting your eyes
The dreaded crows feet around your eyes is often the first visible sign of ageing. This can be provoked by unconscious frowning or squinting, caused by a deterioration in eyesight. Whilst it may not be the top of you to do list with your hectic lifestyle, a simple way to avoid this is by regularly getting your eyes checked out. On bright days, up the glam and make sure you grab your sunglasses on the way out of the door.
The state of your mind contributes to your appearance. If you suffer from chronic stress, cellular ageing can accelerate, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. To help keep the wrinkles at bay, try out some different ways to alleviate stress, such as yoga and meditating.
Poor skin regime
Whilst we all know the importance of moisturising, why not try something a little new to keep your skin looking plump and full. Here at SkinBase, we have the answer to all your problems; microdermabrasion. The SkinBase Facial is an effective anti wrinkle treatment, which removes dead skin cells, as well as increasing the production of collagen. With no recovery time and no discomfort.
