When it comes to skin ageing, prevention really is better than a cure. Premature ageing is a common concern for many in their 20’s and 30’s – but it doesn’t need to be! They key is to find products that suit your skin type and naturally feed your skin with the nutrients it needs to function at its best.
First thing: Get to know your skin! Does your skin feel super dry and tight after you cleanse? You might be using the wrong cleanser. Our skin needs a healthy amount of sebum as a protective barrier to lock in moisture and keep it looking supple. Stripping away all oil each time you cleanse can dry your skin, making it appear dull and dehydrated.
Our Comfort Clean Cleansing Fluid, which has all the benefits of a nourishing milk cleanser, with the feel of a lightly foaming gel thoroughly cleanses the skin without stripping it of its necessary oils.
Making sure your moisturiser isn’t too heavy or too lightweight is another key in preventing the signs of skin ageing. A moisturiser such as our Q10 Energy Cream may be too rich in lipids for a combination skin, but is perfect for someone who is dry/dehydrated. Our Oyster Skin Balance Cream is a great option for combination skins, as it balances out oils while adding necessary hydration.
The main culprit of ageing skin? The sun! 80% of premature ageing is caused by UV rays. A good sunscreen is key for anyone who wants to prevent the signs of skin ageing. Dalton’s UVA/UVB Sun Protection Cream provides broad spectrum protection with the added benefits of skincare. It contains spirulina to promote cell renewal and Vitamin E to improve skin hydration while being light weight and non-greasy, making it perfect for everyday use under makeup.
Nourishing your skin and protecting it from the main cause of ageing in your 20’s and 30’s will see you reap the benefits of healthy bright skin in years to come!
