Ageing is a natural process. We cannot slow down time but we can slow down the visible signs of ageing, for example dyeing our grey hairs or eating the right foods and exercising regularly to keep our bodies strong & our minds sharp. But let’s not forget the number one thing we wish we could remain looking youthful – our skin. Face, neck and décolletage areas all seem to want to give your age away, so here are a few things you can do to help keep people guessing your age:
Wear sun cream all year round. Yes that’s right. Not just in the sunshine but all year round. You are still exposed to harmful UVA rays even when it’s overcast outside (those rays are sneaky and WILL cause premature ageing of the skin) so be mindful.
Moisturise. Moisturise. Moisturise. This is the single most important aspect you can do to take care of your skin. Dry, dehydrated skin looks haggard, and it ages you. Moisturising daily can help minimise dryness and bestows a radiant glow upon the face. The massage technique you use to apply the cream also helps skin stay supple. The suppler your face, the more youthful it appears. Daily moisturisers such as Jivesse Marine Collagen Cream is packed full of collagen (a necessary component for taut skin) which when applied provides a skin tightening effect that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Stop smoking. Easy to say, hard to do. But it’s a well-known fact that smoking causes wrinkles and can age your appearance by 10 years if not more.
Eat a healthy, balanced diet. Yes I know, it’s all we hear nowadays, but it makes sense. Only if we eat healthily will our body be nourished and that includes our skin. Our body as a whole will be healthier and as a result skin will be, which in turn will look more youthful. Vitamins like vitamin C are essential for collagen production. A lack of it could lead to skin ageing. It’s as simple as that. A lack of essential nutrients stands between you and youthful skin.
Take supplements. Skin supplements like Jivesse Marine Collagen Capsules contain collagen peptides that actively work from within to help boost collagen production, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamins with antioxidant properties (such as vitamins C & E) may also work to help promote skin’s youth.
Make sure your skin care products contain Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid is key to helping restore moisture in skin. It has a unique ability to lock in moisture (approximately 1000ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid). An increase in skin’s moisture has been found to result in an increase in skin smoothness and amelioration in wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid also helps boost collagen production in the body, as well as helping retain skin moisture thereby helping support its anti-ageing benefits to the skin. Skin with increased levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid have been found to be suppler as well as resistant to fine lines and wrinkles. Jivesse Capsules contains both of these ingredients and more.
Reap the benefits of face masks every now and then. At-home face masks have become increasingly popular and work wonders in instantly promoting skin’s health. The Jivesse Gold Collagen Face Mask is the ultimate luxury mask containing 24k Gold Leaf which saturates your skin leaving you with a radiant complexion. It also boasts collagen content which helps skin look and feel suppler and firm resulting in what appears to be an instant face-lift. It’s the perfect pick me up for your skin.
These are just a few top tips for helping slow down skin ageing. There is no cure, so prevention is key. The earlier you start to take care of your skin (late 20’s early 30’s is ideal), the longer it will remain youthful in appearance, giving you one less thing to worry about.
