Learn How To Prevent the Signs of Ageing
Ageing starts earlier than you think. From your early 20s, your body starts producing less collagen, and your skin starts to lose its youthful glow.
But it’s not all bad news.
Whether you’ve started to notice fine lines around your eyes or your skin doesn’t quite glow like it used to, there are lots of things you can do to stop ageing in its tracks.
How To Keep Your Skin Looking Youthful and Healthy
Here are the top 6 ways you can prevent the signs of ageing, according to our skin experts here at b clinic.
It’s scary how many people brave damaging UV rays each day because they don’t apply adequate sunblock – and they’re looking older as a result.
Always wear 50+ SPF sunscreen to prevent facial brown spots and skin discolouration, red veins and blotchiness. Sunscreen also helps slow down wrinkle formation and premature ageing of your skin.
Make sure you apply at least 30 minutes before you head outside. If you’re outside for an extended period, re-apply to keep your skin protected. Alongside sunblock, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes and prevent excessive squinting that can cause crow’s feet and fine lines to appear around the eyes.
If your skin is already showing signs of sun damage, medical-grade peels can be an effective way to tackle uneven skin tone, photodamaged skin, and fine lines.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation can be a fast and effective treatment for more stubborn pigmentation like spider veins and freckles. Unlike many laser therapies, it also involves little to no downtime.
You’ll have heard this before, but it’s so important to keep your skin hydrated. A quality hydration cream like the Shield Day Moisturiser is a must-have for your skincare routine. Dry skin can make your complexion dull, but it also makes visible signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles look worse.
Everything from the air conditioning at work to the water you rinse your face with is pulling moisture away from the skin. It’s a constant battle to keep your skin hydrated.
You can add a Humidify deep moisturising cream to your daily routine to protect against dehydration and boost skin integrity. A hyaluronic acid serum can also help to lock moisture into the skin and prevent dryness and visible signs of ageing.
A Beauty Booster Treatment is a powerful anti-ageing treatment that uses micro injections of dermal filler for more intense hydration. It’s an excellent treatment to hydrate the skin and target problem areas where fine lines and wrinkles are beginning to form.
Cell turnover starts to slow down with age. Your skin doesn’t regenerate as fast as it once did, which can leave you with a dull complexion.
Regular exfoliation is the best way to encourage cell renewal and keep your skin looking healthy and glowing. You can remove dry, dead, and dull skin so that new, healthy cells can come to the surface.
Using an at-home treatment like the triple acid Defy Exfoliation Cream can refresh the skin and help the active ingredients in your other skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin.
If you want to see noticeable results faster, a microdermabrasion treatment is a great way to banish dull skin and get your glow back. It exfoliates the outer layers of skin to help prevent signs of ageing and create a smoother, vibrant complexion.
Getting enough sleep each night helps your skin stay fresh and youthful. When you’re sleeping, cell renewal is at its peak. Your body is repairing and renewing your skin.
When you’re sleep-deprived, dark circles and bags under your eyes make you look years older. Also, getting enough sleep inoculates you from feeling down in the dumps for 24 hours – which means you’re more likely to have the energy to eat well and look after your skin.
If you’ve burned the candle at both ends for too long, your skin might need a pick-me-up to get its glow on again. Light Peels, Microdermabrasion, DermaPen skin needling, and our Beauty Booster Treatment can all improve your skin’s texture for a fresher, more radiant appearance.
Target Wrinkles Early
Most people start to notice fine lines and wrinkles in their 20s. The first area these annoying signs of ageing appear is usually around the eyes – crow’s feet.
The best way to prevent crow’s feet is to avoid damage to the delicate skin around the eyes. Make sure you apply sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays, and wear sunglasses to prevent excessive squinting.
Using a serum or cream containing retinal can help protect your skin from free radicals and prevent crow’s feet from forming. The Renaissance Night Cream contains both retinal and niacinamide to reverse the appearance of skin ageing and increase moisture retention.
If you’re already seeing lines appear, prevent them from deepening and becoming permanent with the latest Muscle Relaxant Treatments. Anti-wrinkle injections can eradicate wrinkles and achieve natural-looking results.
Keep Skin Full and Fresh
Healthy, young skin looks plump and smooth due to collagen and elastin. These essential proteins are the building blocks that provide structure for your face.
But the body produces less and less collagen once you hit your mid-20s. This loss of skin structure and volume usually starts to show around the eyes, the cheeks, and the jawline.
You can keep your skin looking plump and full for longer by using antioxidant ingredients like niacinamide, peptides, and vitamin C. Adding a Mellow Peptide Cream to your skincare routine can boost collagen production and improve skin integrity.
To see faster results, ask our skin experts at b clinic about a Sublime skin tightening treatment. Sublime uses infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and encourage cell renewal.
If you’ve started to notice hollowing or skin laxity, dermal filler treatments are a simple and effective way to restore lost volume. It’s great for nasolabial folds and your tear trough area where wrinkle lines and volume loss can become a problem.
