5 Essential Steps from a Dermatologist

1. Cleanse

Never go to sleep without cleansing your skin. Your skin renews itself at night as you sleep and cannot do so effectively if it is clogged with impurities.

2. Exfoliate

Have a chemical peel once a month to speed up cell renewal and to give your skin a healthy glow. As you age your cellular turnover slows down and causes a build up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin that makes it dull – they cannot be removed with ordinary cleansers.

3. Target

Use Retinols, Antioxidants, Vitamins A, Vitamin C and Growth Factors for collagen stimulation and to enhance your skincare regimen. As your skin gets older and drier you may need to call in the troops for some additional help.

4. Moisturise

Buy the best moisturiser you can afford – never skimp on hydration and always research the best option for yourself – a light cream or serum if your skin is oily or combination and a rich cream if it is dry and dehydrated.  It is best to buy a day moisturiser with an SPF.

5. Protect

Use a good quality, high factor broad spectrum sunscreen every day and for double protection use an antioxidant. No matter what expensive products you buy or what anti-ageing treatments you undergo, if your skin is unprotected in sunlight it is counter-productive. Sun Ages Skin.
