Stop Premature Ageing With These Products
Although we cannot stop ageing completely, we can treat our skin and use products that will slow down the process significantly. Prevention is far more effective than treating skin that is already damaged. Damage to our skin can come from the sun, our diet, cigarette smoke, stress, and even a lack of sleep. When we prioritise a healthy lifestyle and the use of quality skincare, we reap the benefits. Consistency is key when it comes to skincare, it’s like diet and exercise, your results won’t occur overnight - patience and persistence!
Let’s take a look at the 3 main culprits for premature ageing:
Stress - stress wrinkles are a thing! When we are feeling overwhelmed and under a lot of stress, our body produces a hormone called Cortisol. Cortisol is responsible for breaking down collagen in the skin, so the more stressed we are, the faster we lose collagen. This also goes hand in hand with lack of sleep, the less sleep we get, the more stressed we are! Remember, you’re too blessed to be stressed!
Sun - this one is a no brainer because we’ve lectured you about it multiple times (and will continue to do so thank you very much). The sun and our skin do not mix well, they don’t play well together. When our skin is exposed to UV rays, the formation of free radicals takes place. These free radicals then damage the elastin fibres in the skin and in turn increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ageing can also come in the form of pigmentation and crepey skin texture - also caused by the sun.
Smoking - oh boy, smoking is a big no for so many reasons, ageing skin is one of those reasons. Along with the huge health risks this bad habit has, it will do a number on your skin. Smoking damages skin cells and increases the production of an enzyme that breaks down the skin’s collagen supply. As this enzyme reduces the skin’s elasticity by breaking down important fibres, it causes the skin to sag and wrinkle - no thanks!
Now that we’ve scared the hell out of you with some skin ageing facts, we’re now coming to you with the solution. Let’s take a look at products that will be a game changer for your skin and will stop premature ageing.

The inclusion of AHA’s and anti-inflammatories work together to remove dead skin cells and impurities of the skin. Double cleansing with this cleanser will reduce congestion, clear pores and give you an instant glow. This product combines Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Lactic Acid and Vitamin E which will improve the skin’s texture and stimulate cell renewal and exfoliation. This is the first step to rewinding the clock as thoroughly cleansed skin allows for the absorption of your active products that follow.
Regenerative Serum - as the name suggests, this serum will work incredibly hard to regenerate the skin. To encourage cellular growth we’ve included Epidermal Growth Factors and peptides - the peptides strengthen the skin’s barrier and the EGF’s improve the skin’s elasticity.
