4 daily steps to prevent skin aging

    1. Use a daily, topical antioxidant formulation

    Recent studies indicate that sun protection alone may not provide complete protection from environmental damage. For broad spectrum protection against all sources of environmental insults, use a topical antioxidant in conjunction with a daily sunscreen. We recommend Obagi's Professional-C serum, which provides maximum daily antioxidant protection against free radicals, which cause premature signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles.

  • 2. Renew your skin by exfoliating regularly

    Every 28 days skin renews itself leaving your skin with a fresh layer of cells. As skin matures this shedding process slows down, causing an excessive build-up of dead skin cells and a hormonally driven loss of skin moisture that work to prematurely age one’s face. This process is accentuated by makeup.

    Exfoliation stimulates new cell growth by removing the cells your body is no longer shedding. It helps your body strip the dead epidermal cells on the outer surface of your skin, exposing a fresher layer of living cells. Within days, skin looks healthier and more youthful. Our favourite is Swissline's Mild Exfoliating Refiner.

  • 3. Apply "broad spectrum" suncreen

    To adequately help to protect skin from the damaging effects of the sun, sun protection needs to be a part of an every day skincare routine. Options include ingredients that help to reflect the UV light, or ingredients that help to absorb UV light, or a combination of both. It is also important to make sure that your sun protection is deemed "broad spectrum". This indicates a level of protection from both UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays. We recommend Yonka Solar Care SPF 50.

    4. Add an extra layer of defence, and reapply

    Did you know that SPF (sun protection factor) only indicates the length of time one is protected from the UVB rays? We recommend adding Jane Iredale's broad spectrum UVA/UVB mineral makeup to your routine; this easy-to-apply extra layer allows for easy reapplication throughout the day.
