TOP 3 WAYS to STOP Ageing Skin in 2021! ⁠⠀

💌There are three skin care essentials that help reduce and reverse the signs of ageing. In this post, I mention a few of my favourites for you to use in 2021⁠⠀

⁠⠀

⁠⠀

☀️1. Sun Protection⁠⠀

- Stops ageing before it occurs aka. Primary prevention ⁠⠀

- UV rays are most prevalent between 10am to 4pm, although in the winter the hours of exposure can be much less! ⁠⠀

- Use broad spectrum sunscreen covering both UV-A and UV-B rays. Some sun lotions also protect against High Energy Visible Light (HEVL) and Infrared (IRA) rays ! ⁠⠀

- Use SPF 30 or higher ⁠⠀

⁠⠀

My favourites:⁠⠀

- Heliocare 360 Oil-free Gel SPF 50+⁠ @heliocareuk

- La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Invisible Fluid SPF50+ Sun Cream ⁠

- OBAGI Matte Sun Shield SPF 50⁠

⁠⠀

⁠⠀

🧴2. Retinoids⁠⠀

- Reduce and reverse the appearance of ageing skin ⁠⠀

- Increase type I + III pro-collagen genes in skin⁠⠀

- Improve the skin environment for better skin blood supply ⁠⠀

- Start at a low dose, and go slowly, only 2-3x per week ⁠⠀

⁠⠀

My favourites:⁠⠀

- OBAGI Retinol 1.0⁠⠀

- ZO® Skin Health Wrinkle + Texture Repair⁠⠀

- OBAGI Retivance® Skin Rejuvenating Complex⁠⠀

⁠⠀

⁠⠀

🍊3. Anti-oxidants⁠⠀

- Antioxidant use can either stop or reverse the effects of ageing skin⁠⠀

- Vitamin C especially reduces the effects of photo-damaged skin cells and redness after UV-radiation (from sun exposure)⁠⠀

- Avoid for those with acne-prone skin ⁠⠀

⁠⠀

My favourites:⁠⠀

- ZO® 10% Vitamin C Self-activating⁠⠀

- Skin better Science Alto Defense Serum ⁠⠀

- OBAGI Professional C Serum 15% ⁠⠀

⁠⠀
