Tackling Ageing with Tips from the Skin Doctors Experts
Posted on September 14, 2018

As the weather heats up, we look forward to long days in the sunshine and making the most of the great outdoors. The warmth of the sun on our skin can feel blissful, but can unfortunately leave lasting effects on your skin. One of the most common, yet preventable, causes of skin ageing and damage is sun exposure and prevention is key. It may seem obvious, but it is important to remember that the sun’s UV rays are much stronger in spring and summer, and therefore detrimental to your skin.

Everyone ages differently, depending on your genetics and lifestyle habits. However you can take proactive measures to slow this process, starting with a foundation of good habits. These include wearing a high Sun Protection Factor sun screen every day to protect yourself from direct and incidental sun exposure. Lifestyle choices, including drinking plenty of water and not smoking can also help to slow the ageing process.

Build on this by establishing a quality anti-ageing skincare regime, which draws on active ingredients designed to work with your body’s natural cell renewal process, whilst also delivering a healthy dose of hydration.

Supermoist SPF50 provides high sun protection and prevents premature skin ageing, acting as a shield to help protect the skin from sun damage. This non greasy, broad spectrum formula not only offers high protection from the sun but aids with hydration too. Aloe Vera known as the “plant of immortality” is packed full of antioxidants including, beta carotene, vitamin C and E that can help improve the skin’s natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated especially when exposed to the suns harsh rays. Adding an anti-aging moisturising solution to your regime will stimulate the skin renewal process and fight the signs of ageing.

Apply Supermoist SPF50 every morning after cleansing and under makeup, to ensure that you are fully protected throughout the day. Be sure to reapply every 4 hours, especially during full sun exposure. We also recommend wearing a hat whenever you’re exposed to the sun and remember: you are what you eat! Avoid excessive drinking and consume foods rich in antioxidants like Vitamin C, E, A and B for a beautiful glow.
