5 signs of premature ageing and how to combat them
Getting old is something many of us don’t like to think – or talk about. However, it’s good to embark on a proper daily care regimen at an early age (as early as 25), because if you wait until your 30s or 40s to start, irreversible damage may already have been done. Different factors can accelerate the ageing process, leading to premature ageing. The good news is that this can be prevented with proper daily care, and treated with the right skincare. Is your skin is showing any of these five signs of early ageing? Read on to find how you can counter them.
1. Sun spots
Sun damage is a major cause of premature ageing, and can show up in the form of uneven skin tone or pigmentation. Use sunscreen on a daily basis and a skincare product rich in Vitamin C to counter existing pigmentation. Whitening Essence contains Vitamin C derivatives which penetrate the skin to prevent a buildup of melanin, which is responsible for pigmentation. It also targets stubborn pigmentation by expelling and preventing the accumulation of melanin in deeper layers of the skin.
2. Fine lines and wrinkles
Lifestyle habits such as smoking, persistent frowning, and sleeping on one side of your face more than the other can all result in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, which appear due to a loss of collagen and elastin within the skin. Combined with UV-induced damage, smoking can also accelerate the degradation of collagen, stimulate free radical damage and restrict blood supply to the skin. The ORBIS =U series is an anti-ageing skincare regimen that repairs damage, restoring skin to its ideal condition.
If your skin looks and feels dry and dull, it can also be a telltale sign of ageing. Dehydrated skin can also feel itchy and may even flake or crack in extreme climates. Replenish and plump dehydrated skin with a strong night time regime. Besides using ORBIS =U, which delivers moisture to the skin, Excellent Enrich Essence further flushes the skin with moisture.
4. Sensitivity and inflammation
UV rays, free radical oxidation or a combination of both can cause dry, sensitive and inflamed skin on the neck and other delicate areas of the body. Designed to be used at night when the skin’s absorptive functions are the strongest, Overnight Whitening Gel EX is a concentrated sleeping pack which helps to block the transmission of UV damage and inhibit the production of melanin.
5. Sagging skin
Sun and oxidative damage are the main causes of sagging skin due to a loss of collagen, the primary source of the skin’s plumpness and elasticity. Lift Bright Essence cares for skin that lacks firmness by lifting and tightening skin and pores, improving its elasticity.
