Adulting is not easy. You’d find yourself navigating through a rough terrain of the unknown. And soon, as age catches up, so do its effects. One side effect that many of us fear is ageing skin – and, of course, the wrinkles that come with it.
At what age does skin wrinkle?
On average, women in Singapore start to notice fine lines and tiny creases at the age of 25 – and for some, as early as in their early 20s.
These signs of premature ageing can be caused by an amalgam of external and internal factors. The former includes exposure to UV lights, which breaks down collagen and elastin in the skin, as well as exposure to free radical oxidative stress and other environmental pollutants. The latter can be attributed to reduced collagen production and slower function of oil and sweat glands that keep skin moist.
As the adage goes, “prevention is better than cure”, and the same applies when it comes to skincare. So if you’re looking to keep wrinkles at bay and retain your youth, taking the proper preventive steps is absolutely imperative.
Read on for 4 wrinkle prevention methods that could change your life!
How do you prevent skin wrinkles?
1. Facial therapy
Facial therapy not only helps to minimise large pores to reveal baby smooth skin, but it also restores skin luminosity, lightens pigmentations for a flawless complexion, improves skin elasticity, smoothens skin texture, and forms and lifts facial contours for a youthful look. Not forgetting that with consistent facial therapy, you can achieve a porcelain-like skin that looks ever-so-flawless and even-toned.
Take some time out of your busy schedule to treat yourself to a Holistic Deluxe Facial Therapy. An 8-in-1 Collagen Rejuvenation that comes with a Deep Pore Refining Facial and Illuminating Glo-skin Face Spa, you can anticipate a translucent glow (read: youthful).
2. Replenish your skin’s moisture
Healing and maintaining your skin’s moisture barrier are vital steps towards preventing wrinkles.
Your skin regenerates while you sleep, so it’s only logical that you supercharge it with all it needs before you go to bed. Invest in a good anti-ageing essence that penetrates deep into your skin and repairs it as you snooze.
If you ask us for recommendations, we think there’s nothing like the Polypeptide Cellular Activating Essence, a do-it-all elixir. With Blue Copper Peptide as its key ingredient, each drop of this treatment essence leaves you with a radiant complexion the following day – and the days after.
3. Targeted anti-ageing skincare
The first and most obvious signs of skin ageing usually appear around the eyes (while we all wished it weren’t so). And if you haven’t made eye serum part of your daily skincare ritual, now’s the time to do so – before you start to notice those crow’s feet, dark circles and under-eye bags around your peepers!
If you’re looking to fight against wrinkles and fine lines around the eye area, the Sheroxi High Performance Time Defence Eye Serum is the best, if we could say so ourselves. Work it into your skincare routine and watch it give literal life to your eyes.
4. Lead a healthy lifestyle
What you put in your body, habits and how you live matters. Unhealthy practices such as consumption of tobacco, insufficient nutrients in your diet, dehydration, stress and lack of sleep can all contribute to the early onset of skin wrinkles. So the best way to prevent skin wrinkles is to adopt healthy lifestyle habits – and that means eating well, sleeping well and getting regular exercise. Complement all of that with proper skincare and look forward to a younger you!
