protecting your skin,
Although wrinkles are a natural part of ageing – they are not the type of company that many people’s skin cares to keep. So while you can’t stop time, you can control how much time your skin chooses to spend with wrinkles over the course of your life.
Without further ado, here is our Managing Director Fiona Tuck’s Top 5: Wrinkle Busting Tips.
Puff & Suff
1. Stop smoking.
Smoking damages collagen by reducing vitamin C bioavailability .Lip pursing and eye squinting that comes with smoking directly can create wrinkles over time. Heavy smokers are almost five times more likely to show excessive wrinkling than non-smokers.
Move that body, baby!
Exercise is another essential key to naturally keeping the skin free of wrinkles. Exercise facilitates oxygen production and the release of toxins.
Eat, Drink & Be Merry.
Choose skin care that contains antioxidants, vitamins and retinol to revitalise and protect the skin. Eat and drink fruit and vegetables that are rich in colour and contain phytonutrients and antioxidants to protect cells
against oxidative stress and premature ageing.
Professional skin treatments can have a wide range of benefits such as stimulating blood circulation to the skin, encouraging the production of hydrating oils, collagen induction, and can also help improve muscle tone
in the delicate facial muscles and prevents sagging and wrinkles.
Be happy! Having an optimistic, laid back approach to life might prevent wrinkles
. At the very least, being happy will help you not care so much about the wrinkles that you do have, as you will be proud of the ‘life lines’ and what they represent.
