1. Sunscreenalways no 1. Wear sunscreen. No excuses. Doesn’t matter if it is cloudy, you live close to work, you hardly go into the sun, Sun damage developes in little bits over time. It doesn’t happen just from one bad exposure. This is the no 1 anti-ageing product you will ever buy.
  2. Double cleansingThe 1st step is always the most important. If your skin is cleansed properly the rest of your products will not penetrate through the oils, make-up and sunscreen left on your skin. It will also cause breakouts. The 1st cleanse will remove all the products and excess oil, the 2nd to cleanse the skin.
  3. No smoking– Smoking has been shown to make acne worse and speed up the ageing process since it diminishes the delivery of oxygen to the skin and robs it of nutrients.
  4. Good oils- Omega 3’s are the best thing that can happen for skin. Nuts, fish, avocado all boost hydration in the skin and gives it a wonderful glow. I see it like feeding the skin. Drinking water will help hydrate to a degree, but omega’s will feed the skin.
  5. Neck and dec Everyone forgets about this area until they are in there 40’s and 50’s and then freak out. This area the skin is a lot finer, has to fight gravity more and is always forgotten. The easy remedy is to bring all your products down. (but massage up)
  6. Eyes as above- once it has started ageing it is harder to fix. Best to get onto this before you get the lines and you will have beautiful eyes well into your older years. That is why eye creams are made especially for this area to be stronger and lighter as this area is thinner and more fragile than any other area. It is also the most effected by expression lines.
  7. Exfoliation- This is a step a lot of people either miss, over do or under do.  Depending on your skin type you should use a light-med grain 2 times a week. For acne- 3 times or use an aha exfoliant. If you start you will notice an immediate difference to the radiance and smoothness of your skin
  8. Glow There are a few ways to do this with make-up. Add a small amount of shimmer to your foundation to give you a dewy glow. Don’t use powder- it mattifies your skin giving you a dull finish. Or use a light shimmer on top of your cheekbones.
