Characteristics of Ageing Skin

Lines and wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process, but a combination of both intrinsic and extrinsic factors can contribute to their early development. These factors include:

  1. Age: As we age, our skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner and drier, making it more prone to developing lines and wrinkles.
  2. Sun exposure: Exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause damage to the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, leading to the formation of lines and wrinkles.
  3. Smoking: Smoking can accelerate the aging process and cause the skin to lose elasticity, leading to the formation of wrinkles.
  4. Facial expressions: Repeated facial expressions, such as squinting or frowning, can cause lines and wrinkles to form over time.
  5. Genetics: Some people are genetically predisposed to developing lines and wrinkles earlier in life.
  6. Environmental factors: Exposure to pollution and harsh weather conditions can also contribute to the development of lines and wrinkles.

How To Care For Ageing Skin

Caring for ageing skin involves following a daily skincare routine that addresses the specific needs of your skin type:

  1. Use a gentle cleanser: Ageing skin is more delicate, so it is important to use a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser to avoid stripping the skin of its natural oils.
  2. Use a hydrating, nutrient-rich moisturiser: As the skin ages, it loses moisture and elasticity, so it is important to use skincare products that can help to restore these. Look for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and antioxidants to help hydrate and protect the skin.
  3. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen: Sun damage is one of the primary causes of ageing skin, so it is important to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to protect the skin from harmful UV rays.
  4. Use an eye cream: The skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate, making it prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Using an eye cream with ingredients such as argan oil, vitamin E oil, resveratrol, and hyaluronic acid can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by restoring moisture and nutrients to the skins layers.
  5. Incorporate anti-ageing active ingredients: Bakuchiol and Coenzyme Q10 are natural, anti-ageing actives making waves in the skincare world. Bakuchiol is a potent antioxidant and natural retinol (Vitamin A) alternative that has been shown in studies to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, and improve skin texture and tone. Coenzyme Q10 is a powerful antioxidant which helps to protect the skin from UV damage, stimulate healthy collagen production and reduce substances that wreak havoc on skin’s support structure. Our Super Boost Bakuchiol Serum is a great skincare addition for those wanting to address fine lines, wrinkles, and ageing skin.
  6. Maintain a healthy lifestyle: Eating a healthy diet, staying hydrated, getting enough sleep, and reducing stress can all help to improve the overall health and appearance of aging skin.

By taking steps to protect your skin from the sun, avoiding smoking, following a daily skincare routine, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and promote healthy, youthful-looking skin.
