Growing older is an inevitable part of life that none of us has any control over. Ageing, however, is a completely different story! Our skin is usually the first part of our body to show signs of ageing.

As the body ages, collagen, and elastin production naturally slow down leading to the appearance of fine lines, skin laxity and in most cases, wrinkles. It doesn’t matter how old you are, cells need hydration to function efficiently. As the body ages, however, a decline in the production of natural oils combined with hormonal changes and slower cellular turnover can lead to dry, rough, skin.

Consuming more liquids will increase the moisture in each cell to help them function optimally. Results are a hydrated, brighter complexion and more youthful skin.

It’s natural that you’d want to keep your skin looking as healthy and youthful as possible for as long as possible. Achieving this involves a mix of lifestyle choices and proactive skincare and treatments – Clear Skincare are on hand to help you understand both.

How to Look After Your Skin

Healthy lifestyle choices play a vital role in looking after your skin as it ages and develops different needs. Some things to consider include:

Find a good skincare regime that works for you: This includes a gentle cleanser, moisturiser, and broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen. Invest in serums that target specific concerns you’d like to address.

  • Serums are lightweight formulations designed to deliver a high concentration of active ingredients into your skin. The best part about serums is they’re super customisable to your skin type and concerns. Meaning you can choose one or layer several that address your skin’s particular needs, from brightening and hydrating to banishing breakouts, smoothing lines and wrinkles or fading dark spots and discolouration.
  • Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption: Both habits can drain your skin of moisture and decrease cell turnover, leading to dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
  • Maintain a healthy diet: Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it requires a significant amount of nutrients to stay healthy. Ensure you get a good amount of mixed, fresh fruit and vegetables. Drink plenty of water and focus on foods that meet skin needs; things like avocados, walnuts, fatty fish and tomatoes are highly recommended to promote good skin health. These foods contain essential fatty acids, which the body cannot build from scratch and needs from food sources. They help produce the skin’s natural oil barrier, and are critical in keeping skin hydrated, plumper, and younger looking.
  • Avoid excessive sunbathing: Make sure your morning skincare routine incorporates a broad-spectrum SPF, preferably at factor 50 sun protection. Sun Exposure plays havoc with
