(and be thrilled when they say “No way! You look much younger”)

First the bad news…. Over the years, changes occur deep within our tissues that accelerate the appearance of premature ageing.

But the good news is by targeting these areas, we can assist in skin renewal and help to create a more firm, even and taught skin tone. It is time to look as young as you feel and reclaim a radiant and more youthful complexion!

What is premature ageing?

It is only natural to experience changes in the skin as we age, however, some of us experience these changes much earlier than expected. This can be due to certain lifestyle or health factors that accelerate the breakdown of our healthy tissue.

Signs of premature ageing are:

  • Dry, dull skin
  • Fine lines
  • Loss of elasticity in the skin
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Uneven, blotchy complexion
  • Wrinkles and ‘saggy’ skin
  • Crows feet (laugh lines), frown and expression lines, especially on forehead

If you are seeing a number of these changes occurring in your skin before time, this may be an indication that you are experiencing some degree of premature ageing.

Possible causes of premature ageing are:

  • Excessive sun exposure (UV damage can result in loss of collagen)
  • Smoking (damages collagen)
  • Lack of sleep
  • Lack of exercise
  • Stress
  • Environment and pollution
  • High alcohol consumption
  • Poor diet lacking in nutrients and antioxidants
  • High sugar diet (which creates Advanced Glycation End products or AGEs which are harmful compounds that are formed when protein or fat combine with sugar in the bloodstream. This process is called glycation, whereby glucose reacts with your collagen and elastin fibres in your skin and become rigid and lose elasticity and plumpness).

Some lifestyle tips you can do to slow time:

  • Apply SPF to your face every day.
  • Wear a hat and sunglasses when outdoors.
  • Avoid sunbaking.
  • Quit or reduce smoking.
  • Exercise regularly to encourage circulation.
  • Reduce sugar intake.
  • Reduce your intake of refined carbohydrates.
  • Eat plenty of foods rich in Vitamin C, such as strawberries, kiwifruit, blueberries, mangoes, oranges, broccoli, red capsicum, kale to aid collagen production.
  • Exercise regularly to encourage oxygen production and elimination of toxins.
  • Eat an antioxidant rich and balanced diet loaded with plenty of fresh vegies and fruit.
