How to Get the Glow and Pause the Ageing Look
Prevention is ALWAYS better than cure which is why is it best to start looking after your skin from an early age.
So here are a few tips to more radiant skin:
Preventative Measures from Ageing
Wear sunscreen every day of the year, use SPF 15 or higher. The sun takes no prisoners on unprotected skin.
Exfoliate regularly 1-2 times a week or use a cleanser with gentle alpha hydroxy acids, do not overdo it.
Moisturize, never skimp on hydration dry and dehydrated skin ages quicker. Buy the best moisturiser you.
If you can afford and get the best option for yourself – a light cream or lotion if your skin is oily or a combination.
A rich cream if it is dry and dehydrated. Buy a day moisturiser with an SPF if you are not keen on layering.
Boost your antioxidant intake with a daily supplement high in omega 3&6, Vit C and E.
Practise Good Habits
Eat a healthy and balanced diet. Good foods for the skin include salmon, avocados, almonds, blueberries and green veggies like spinach and broccoli.
Hydrate, drink your 2-3 L of water daily.
Get enough sleep.
Smile because your face tells a story
