We are all looking for that miracle elixir to freeze our faces to look 21 forever. Unfortunately, we can’t completely stop wrinkles and lines from happening. However, we can slow it down! But with so many magical potions out there, which ones are the best, and what should you be looking for?
Let’s first understand what exactly aging skin is.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and firmness, and we may notice fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Did you know that the natural aging process starts around the age of 25! However, how your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors such as lifestyle, diet, and other personal habits. For example, smoking can produce free radicals in the skin which can cause premature wrinkles. On aging, the skin becomes drier and thinner, which causes wrinkles to form. Skin cell regeneration slows down, dead cells sit on the surface, dulling our natural glow. Using anti-aging products that can target these symptoms, slow down the aging process and prevent premature aging.
Let’s explore our staff’s favourite anti-aging products for keeping their skin looking youthful and healthy.
