Expert Anti-Ageing Skincare Advice For Everyone
It’s completely natural for the skin’s appearance to change as we age. We might not be able to turn back the clock, but there is plenty we can do to improve the appearance of wrinkles and keep skin looking youthful, healthy, and fresh. From eye creams and beauty sleep to cell turnover, dead skin cells and everything inbetween, we’ve collated our best anti-ageing skincare and lifestyle advice for all skin types.
1. Consistency is key
While it’s true that an active skincare routine is essential for helping skin to look youthful, it’s no use if the products just sit on your dresser! Using your cleanser, toner, exfoliator, serum and moisturiser consistently is the real key to help improve any skin damage and prevent premature skin ageing, no matter if you have mature skin or you're just starting to see the first signs of ageing. For personalised advice on curating the right daily skin routine for your skin type, needs and lifestyle, book a live video consultation with one of our skincare experts.
2. Prevention is better than cure
You probably already knew that, but don’t despair if you haven’t been taking care of your skin, start now and you will see results no matter your skin age. A simple regime that includes daily cleansing to rid skin of damaging debris and boost cell turnover, followed by a serum like Rénergie H.C.F. Triple Serum to target the signs of ageing, such as wrinkles and dark spots will make a big difference to the appearance of your skin. Include an eye cream to target fine lines and help improve the appearance of dark circles. Next apply a daytime moisturiser with SPF to hydrate and protect. Once evening arrives, to make this a nighttime routine simply repeat, replacing your moisturiser with a nourishing night cream.
3. Glowing skin looks youthful
This one is a bit of a secret, but younger skin actually is more radiant, let us explain -- as we age, the skin’s natural cell renewal process slows up, meaning skin stops quickly shedding old, dead skin cells, leaving these to build-up on the surface. These older dead skin cells don’t reflect light as readily as the newer, brighter skin cells, so skin starts looking dull. To combat this slow down regularly exfoliate skin or choose to moisturise with Rénergie H.P.N. 300-Peptide Cream, which helps skin regenerate faster, even as you age, specifically in women aged 40-59 years. The formula also includes anti-ageing big hitters – Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide and 300 types of Peptides, it's suitable for all skin types, especially mature skin.
4. Hydration helps
As skin ages, it naturally produces less collagen, less elastin, and less natural moisture or oil. Combine this moisture loss with cumulative environmental and sun damage, the natural weakening of the skin barrier and hormonal changes, and skin can become noticeably drier. Even those who once had oily skin or combination skin report dry skin as they reach middle age, (yep your skin type can change!). A lack of water in the skin AKA dehydration will make fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles look more pronounced too. Look to plump up skin with hydrating serums and ingredients like hyaluronic acid and nurture with rich moisturisers. Other tips include avoid washing with water that is too hot – as this is extremely drying and applying hydrating serums such as Advanced Génifique Serum (which has over 15000 5* reviews online) directly after cleansing, showering or bathing – leave it too long and symptoms of dehydration such as dullness, tightness and itchiness can occur.
5. Eyecare is worthwhile
It is important to use a separate eye product that is specifically formulated to target the delicate skin of the eye area. The skin here is amongst the thinnest and most delicate on the body, and therefore it’s often the first area to show signs of ageing such as fine lines. As we age, skin naturally gets thinner, and this often makes under eye dark circles look more prominent too. Investing in a powerful eye cream and applying it gently every morning and evening is your best defence against the appearance of fine lines and symptoms of premature ageing. We recommend Advanced Génifique Light Pearl to re-energise and de-puff every morning. In the evening, nourish and improve firmness with Rénergie Eye Cream.
It is well documented that UV rays from the sun cause damaging changes in the skin, including premature ageing. In fact, UV rays are usually the main culprit of many skin concerns, including dark spots, reduced skin elasticity, uneven skin tone and wrinkles. If you have previously overlooked sun protection and sustained skin damage, then there’s plenty you can do to improve skin tone, but the first step is start wearing daily sunscreen. If you’re yet to see damage, don’t be fooled by the sun, and always ensure you protect your skin with a daily SPF product. Try our Rénergie Multi-Lift Ultra Cream SPF20 a lightweight anti-wrinkle moisturising cream that provides SPF20 and helps fine lines to look smoother and dark spots on face appear less visible.
Keeping your body healthy will always have some impact on your skin, so try to drink plenty of water and eat a variety of fruit and vegetables. Exercise increases blood flow to the skin, boosts the endorphins that make us feel good and helps us to de-stress, all great for our skin! Unfortunately, stress does have a negative effect on skin health, so try to remain consistent with your skincare routine even when stress peaks and look for ways to manage stress. When we sleep our body works hard to repair damage from the day and that includes skin damage, so getting enough beauty sleep is key for strong skin too.
