How to combat premature skin ageing

Unfortunately, none of us can avoid the inevitable fact that we will naturally age, (intrinsic ageing) but we can do our best to look after our body and our skin so that we don’t age prematurely through bad lifestyle choices (extrinsic ageing.) \

Wear sunscreen and limit your tanning. 

Spending hours under the sun is a mistake that many young women and men make, but every time you get a suntan you are compromising your skin. Make sure you wear sunscreen (at least 30 SPF) every time you expose your skin to the sun, but even so, don’t lay suntanning for 8 hours straight if you want to keep a youthful complexion. 

Don’t Smoke. Seriously.

You’ve heard this one before, but for good reason. Smoking is commonly known to prematurely age our skin and give us a sallow and dull complexion, so take steps to quit while you’re young. 

Moisturise Daily.  

Moisturising your skin is like giving it a nice glass of water, it keeps it supple and hydrated throughout the year. Consider finding a moisturiser than contains Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid, which may reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

PERSONALISED TIP:

Try adding walnuts, flaxseed and hemp seeds for the ultimate mood booster breakfast! 

Supplement with Selenium and Vitamin C 

Selenium is known to help the body preserve tissue elasticity, and Vitamin C is known to repair free radicals. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to get your daily dose of these minerals. 

PERSONALISED TIP:

Although you can get these vitamins from a balanced diet, you can also supplement Selenium and Vitamin C to make sure you’re getting your daily dose in. Take our quiz today to find out how we can tailor your daily vitamins.
