3 Steps to Taking the Sting out of Wrinkles
Posted on September 14, 2018

Fine lines and wrinkles are an inevitable fact of life as we mature into our older years, but there are certain lifestyle habits that accelerate the natural ageing process. Factors such as smoking, sun exposure, hormones, certain medications and poor diet can contribute to skin becoming drier, thinner and less elastic. However, there are proactive steps you can take to slow down the signs of ageing.

Wrinkles tend to creep up on us slowly. You might have looked in the mirror and spotted fine expression lines or perhaps you’ve noticed them now, as they’ve developed over time. Either way, it’s not too late to take corrective measures against your wrinkles without resolving to drastic painful plastic surgery procedures.

Skin Doctors Beetox is an effective facial cream that combines nourishing manuka honey with bee venom and the powerful peptide Trylagen to create a unique anti-wrinkle treatment.

Bee venom has been used in beauty treatments for centuries as the primary compound, melittin, creates a reaction which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Reproduction of these connective tissues helps skin to remain taut and bounce back into shape, reducing long term ageing of the skin. Skin Doctors Beetox is proven to triple the formation of collagen in just 7 days.

For the best effects, we recommend the following routine:

  1. Cleanse face thoroughly with Skin Doctors pH balancing cleanser and pat dry.
  2. With dry fingertips, apply small amount of Skin Doctors Beetox treatment to your face, neck and décolletage, be sure to avoid the eye area.
  3. Apply your choice of Skin Doctors moisturising product. We recommend following with Skin Doctors Supermoist SPF50 protection during the day and Skin Doctors skinactive regenerative night cream at night.

Additional measures that you can take to tackle wrinkles in the long term are addressing your nutritional requirements, ensuring your diet is varied and high in antioxidant rich fruit and vegetables, along with drinking plenty of water.
