Every time you blow off a candle on your birthday, especially in your 30s, the thought of developing wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of ageing definitely cross our minds. While ageing is natural and one can’t do much to stop it, you can definitely take some steps to delay the signs of ageing from appearing. Yes, you read that right. Ahead, we’ve listed some common ageing concerns and the best ways to deal with them to maintain that flawless, youthful skin for as long as possible…
01. Dull skin
As you age, your skin starts to accumulate a lot of dead skin cells making your skin appear dull and lacklustre. This is one of the first signs of ageing. Since your skin’s natural cell turnover process slows down with age, it becomes difficult for your skin to restore its natural glow.
BB pro tip: The best way to fight dull skin is to include a brightening skin serum in your skincare routine. You can try the Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum Brightening Vitamin C Serum that delivers three times more vitamin C to your skin and makes it appear brighter, firmer and more radiant.
02. Dry skin
Another very common sign of ageing is dryness, which is also known as crepey skin. This is because your skin loses its ability to produce as much natural moisture as it once did, thereby leaving your skin dry, parched and rough.
BB Pro Tip: You can apply the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum every night before bed. The inclusion of Moroccan argan oil helps to deeply nourish your skin to ensure that you wake up to beautiful, soft and glowing skin.
03. Age spots
A lot of people develop dark spots on their skin as they grow older. These spots occur anywhere on the body and are not just restricted to the face. One of the major reasons for this skin concern is constant exposure to the sun which leads to increased melanin production in the area leading to age spots.
BB pro tip: The best way to avoid this is to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen such as the Pond’s Sun Protect Non-Oily Sunscreen SPF 30, which offers both UVA and UVB protection to prevent further damage. Additionally, limit sun exposure by spending less time in the sun especially from 12 pm to 4 pm.
04. Wrinkles and fine lines
Fine lines and wrinkles are related to skin dryness. With age, your skin tends to lose collagen, elasticity and moisture leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly in areas where there is maximum muscle usage such as areas around your eyes, forehead and mouth.
BB pro tip: The best way to fight fine lines and wrinkles is by increasing your skin’s natural moisture levels and making it look plump. The Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Night Cream is enriched with intelligent pro cell complex A to plump up your skin and banish those fine lines and wrinkles.
