Did you know your skin ages faster than you? Well in most cases, that’s a fact! You might be wondering – if everyone’s skin ages that fast, why do some people look younger than others? 

The truth is that how well your face reflects your age depends on a combination of genetics and lifestyle. For example, do you regularly smoke or go out in the sun without sunscreen? These habits leave marks on your skin right from the beginning.

When it comes to skin ageing, here’s a secret – while you can’t stop the process, you can most definitely slow it down! Early prevention and attention makes it possible to keep the ageing signs from showing on your face, or look much younger than your age. 

Experts have found that skin ageing typically starts around 25, in various ways. If you have started seeing these signs in your 20s, 30s, and 40s, then you might want to read below about what you can do to address them: 

  • After the age of 20, the dermis in skin produces 1% less collagen every year. Collagen and elastin fibres become loose, which means skin loses elasticity and begins to sag, feeling less hydrated and refreshed. 
  • In the early 20s, the skin’s exfoliation process decreases by at least 20%, which means that dead skin sticks around. Sun damage due to harsh UV rays is also a possibility unless preventive measures are taken. 
  • In the early 30s, the transfer of moisture from the dermis to deeper layers of skin slows down, and fat cells shrink. This can make the skin look dull and thin. 
  • The 30s are also when some people begin to notice the first signs of wrinkles, fine lines around the eyes, and folds between the eyebrows. These ageing signs like wrinkles, fine lines and spots are the results of accumulation of defects in cells. 
  • In the 40s, problems with excess pigmentation might arise as sun exposure catches up. The corners of the mouth can turn down, lips might begin to get smaller, and the skin might start to sag. 

How Do You Slow Down Skin Ageing?

Skincare experts recommend that you begin adding anti-ageing products in your skincare routine as early as your 20s! In your 30s and 40s, add anti-ageing products to your routine to maintain a refreshing glow. That way, you can look like the most stunning version of yourself at any age!

How Do Anti-Ageing Products Work? 

The anti-ageing market is full of products that might help you slow down signs of ageing, but very few explain the science behind how this works. Let us explain what anti-ageing products do in general: 

  • Provide antioxidants to neutralise free radicals, which are unstable molecules that damage skin cells. These are a result of factors like stressors, unprotected sun exposure, air pollution and environmental changes. 
  • Allow vital collagen to naturally build in your body, which helps make your skin healthier and radiant, and also strengthens your bones and joints. 
  • Use Retinol to reduce wrinkles in your skin. As Retinol can sometimes result in skin redness, the plant-based alternative of Phyto Retinol is much safer in this case. 
  • Moisturise your skin, which allows water to be retained in the pores, plumps the skin up, and makes fine lines and wrinkles less visible. 
  • Provide Vitamin C, which protect the skin from sun exposure. 

How Can I Get Into Anti-Ageing Products? 

A beginner to skincare and anti-ageing products, but want to try them out? Not to worry! Start with the basics, like a gentle cleanser and moisturiser. Starting in your 20s, sunscreen can be your skin’s best friend – apply it whenever you go out to mitigate sun damage fairly early so that it does not become a concern later, and keep applying it throughout your 30s and 40s. 

The best anti-ageing products tackle the diminishment of ageing signs from the inside and outside! Powerful plant-powered ingredients such as Phyto Retinol, Rose Oil and Tiare Flower can help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin from the outside (through application) while Acai Berry and Acerola Cherry (a powerful source of Vitamin C) can help replenish the body’s natural collagen from the inside.
