1. It is vital to rid the skin’s surface of damaging toxins and free-radicals which accumulate throughout the day, as they are one of the leading causes of skin ageing. Make the most of your cleansing routine by choosing one which does not strip the skin, and contains added skincare benefits, such as moisture-rich and gently exfoliating Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE Cleanser (£38/125ml), to prepare skin for the next step in your regime.
2. Over time, the skin’s naturally occurring hyaluronic acid reserves are depleted, which causes it to lose its plump and firm qualities, so look for products which contain high levels of hyaluronic acid. Be sure to treat yourself to a regular treatment mask at least once a week – Decléor Decléor Prolagène Lift, Lift & Fill Wrinkle Mask /15ml(£32/30ml) has been specially designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by imparting active ingredients where the skin needs it most.
3. Lastly, we know that the thin skin around the eyes is the first area of the face to show signs of ageing. It can often be drier than the rest of the face, as this area does not produce as much natural oil, but traditional moisturisers used on the rest of the face can be too heavy. To combat fine lines and crows feet, gently tap on a light, targeted serum, such as Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum (£46/15ml) using your ring finger. This will help the product to be absorbed, whilst avoiding tugging the delicate skin and overloading it with product.
