Meet Clara, our exceptional skin therapist. She is giving us her top 10 tips on aging skin.
As our skin ages, the production of collagen and elastin decreases causing sagging skin, lines, wrinkles and loss of volume.
A myth about aging that everyone should STOP believing is ”if you start with anti ageing products to early, they won´t work when you really need them.” It is very important that you use products for your skin type and condition but your skin won't get immune to active ingredients. However, it might be unnecessary to use some of these ingredients before any signs of aging are showing, but to start think of anti-aging early helps to keep the signs of aging away for longer.
Most women should start to think about anti-aging products earlier than you’d expect. This can be very individually, but your skin starts to change by the age of 25. You may notice some differences in texture or maybe some fine lines around the eyes, there is usually where our first signs of aging is shown. Eye cream and a serum with antioxidants and hydration is a great start.
I’s important to use anti-aging products because the ingredients in anti-aging products are customized to work against the signs of aging. If we want to reduce fine lines, we need to apply an ingredient that actually can help with that.
The #1 most important thing to look for in an anti-aging product is facts! There are so many products out there, promising to make your skin smooth and wrinkle-free in a couples of weeks. And it might be hard to know what to believe.My best tip is to look at facts, because it´s known, through studies, that ingredients like hyaluronic acid and peptides do make a difference when it comes to preventing aging.
The biggest misconception when it comes to anti-aging skin care is that it doesn't work, that the only way to work against aging is to use needles and surgery. Which, of course, isn´t true. There is a lot we can do with skin care and sun protection!
One thing that everyone NEEDS to know about anti-aging skin care products is that products and active ingredients can do a lot for your skin, but it´s all part of a healthy lifestyle. Combine your skincare with good food, rich in antioxidants, enough sleep and happiness.
A little known fact about a certain ingredient in most anti-aging skincare products is that Hyaluronic acid, actually is not an acid. It´s a sugar, naturally produced in our bodies, with an incredible ability to attract water.
When it comes to aging, the sun causes many unpleasant changes.Except from good skin care routine, sun protections and antioxidants are the key to a healthy looking skin.
When you apply your cream before bedtime, spend 2 minutes to massage it on your face. The massage is good for many things, including activating your microcirculation, helping the skin to better absorb the active ingredients and relax tense muscles. Needless to say that it also feels nice and calming.
