Firmer Skin Can Be Yours
As we age, we start to experience fine lines and wrinkles and our skin no longer feels as supple and plump as we hoped for. What causes skin to lose elasticity and vitality? The main cause of this is the loss of collagen and elastin fibers in the deeper layer of the skin – these function as the “mattress spring’ of our skin, holding it up to keep it looking smooth, firm and taut.
However, due to the natural progression of ageing (everyone experiences this, you’re not alone) and a slowdown in collagen and elastin production, these “springs” become weaker and looser, resulting in the inevitable collapse of the skin due to gravity. This ageing process begins in our mid-20s, with collagen depleting at a rate of 1% every year
In addition, our modern digital-savvy life comes with its adverse effects too, in a silent way – digital pollution with blue-light from modern gadgets that we constantly use daily (mobile devices, computer, etc.) accelerate our ageing process.
By the time we notice fine lines and wrinkles and our skin starting to sag, it is an uphill battle to reverse the ageing process. Like most things in life, prevention is always better than cure.
What can be done to have the skin that we desire? Here are some good skin loving tips:
Boost moisture level
Dryness in skin accelerates ageing. When our skin is dry, fine lines and wrinkles will be more visible and run deeper.
Spritz a good amount of toner after cleansing to support your skin’s protective barrier by creating an active antioxidant shield to fight free radical damage, and help prevent the signs of ageing. Antioxidant Hydramist is perfect for the job.
Loading up on a good moisturizer is a great start. Constantly making sure that your skin is bathed in optimal hydration level with anti-ageing properties is key to a more supple, healthier skin. Super Rich Repair provides superb lifting and wrinkle-soothing results to minimize expression lines.
Go for a firming serum
Apart from boosting moisture, a serum that balances your skin hydration and lipid levels and packed full of anti-ageing ingredients will help boost your skin’s radiance. Phyto Nature Firming Serum is an innovative 2-in-1 serum that helps firm, lift and revitalize with biomimetic peptides, powerful botanicals and next generation hyaluronic acid. It doubles skin luminosity and minimizes the appearance of fine lines immediately, and reduces visible wrinkles in 4 weeks.
Invest in a good facial treatment
Apart from our daily homecare regimen, some extra intervention helps. Consider a safe and effective non-invasive facial treatment, like Intense Facelift Therapy with HIFU that gives instant lifting, firming and a defined facial contour – quick anti-ageing results with zero downtime and minimal discomfort.
Facial exercises can tone and tighten facial muscles. For example, jawline exercises reduce the appearance of a double chin. Devices to power up your daily homecare regimen like Bt Sonic can be used to exercise your skin by stimulating blood circulation, encourage lymphatic drainage, as well as 8x better cleansing than manual methods.
Collagen peptides can help replenish collagen that is broken down in the body. Moreover, Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can repair damaged skin cells, protect the skin from free radicals and even assist in collagen production.
