Why does our skin change with time?
Throughout our lives, our skin is exposed to a large variety of factors that contributes to aging, from sun exposure to genetics, bad habits, and even an unbalanced diet.
As we grow older, usually over 40, the perimenopause begins, and it’s when our skin changes the most. Unfortunately, estrogen levels start to decrease at this age, leading to a series of changes that result in a drier, dull and less elastic skin.
Additionally, we experience deeper wrinkles as the result of a loss in facial volume; also enlarged pores, capillaries, and pigmentation marks become visible.
What can you do to reverse or delay the skin ageing process?
Using the right moisturiser with SPF every single day all year is one of the most important beauty tip to prevent the skin dryness and wrinkles that come with age. Furthermore, it is important to have a balanced diet, avoiding foods that increase the production of free radicals, such as processed meats, saturated fats, sugar and alcoholic beverages.
Moreover, adopting a healthy lifestyle with regular exercises, a healthy sleep schedule, a comfortable home environment surrounded by loved ones, no smoking and being future-minded is extremely important for your skin. Don't be afraid to make big changes in life, allow yourself to dream and always have in mind that a young mind equals to a young body.
To reverse the signs of ageing in days rather than months combine the above tips with professional anti-ageing skin treatments, along with a tailored to your skin needs daily skincare routine.
