Age-Proof Your Skin Naturally

Posted by Alice Conolly on

We don’t like the term ‘anti-ageing skincare’. We think age and experience are to be valued, and smile or laugh lines are inevitable and show a life well lived. However, we’re happy to help you show your best and most vibrant skin at any age.

What causes skin ageing?

There are two key causes of skin ageing - intrinsic ageing (a.k.a. the one we can’t control) and extrinsic aging (a.k.a. the one we can).

Intrinsic Ageing

Intrinsic ageing is dependent on genetics and happens naturally as our skin cells biologically age, which causes a drop in the production of collagen - the structural support for the skin which gives it its plump, youthful firmness - and elastin, which provides it with resilience and elasticity.

Extrinsic Ageing

Extrinsic ageing – sometimes called photoageing – is caused by long-term external stressors. What’s surprising is that this is the key cause of visible ageing, so this is where those late nights, smoking, environmental factors and sun exposure start to take their toll! Photoaged skin not only has the effects of intrinsic ageing but also shows an increase in skin surface roughness and wrinkles, further reduced firmness and elasticity, as well as dryness and increased uneven pigmentation.

What are the signs of ageing?

The drop of collagen and elastin production causes the deterioration of skin structure and function, making it lose firmness, volume and become thinner. This in turn causes skin to become looser and form fine lines and wrinkles - these are often first spotted in areas where your skin is naturally thinner, such as the skin around your eyes.
Another part of ageing is cell turnover slowing, which can cause skin to take a duller appearance. The skin barrier function can be compromised too, making it harder for your skin hang onto moisture, causing it to lose its natural glow and for fine lines to become more pronounced.

Caring for ageing skin

Ageing is inevitable and a part of life, but we have a few tips and tricks to help you prevent premature ageing and to bring your more vibrant skin to light:
  • Always use SPF With sun damage being a massive culprit of premature ageing, it’s important to protect your skin on the daily. This isn’t just limited to summertime! Rain or shine, inside or outside, protection is a must all year round.
  • Hydration As skin ages, it may struggle to retain moisture and dehydrated skin can show fine lines and wrinkles, so it's important to get enough hydration on the daily. Drink plenty of water and incorporate water-packed foods such as cucumber into your diet.
  • Lifestyle & diet Life is for living, so those late nights and beach trips are inevitable! However, there are some simple rules that can make a big difference in the long run. Get plenty of sleep to limit stress and help your skin regenerate overnight and keep alcohol intake to a low. Smoking is a major key culprit of premature aging as it causes the narrowing of blood vessels, limiting blood flow and preventing oxygen and nutrients from reaching, so if there is one thing we’d recommend foregoing completely, it would cigarettes.
  • Consistent skincare routine Finally, it’s important to keep a good, consistent skincare routine to care for your skin and keep it glowing throughout the years.
