1. Stay Hydrated

Proper hydration is key to healthy skin. Drinking an adequate amount of water each day helps maintain skin elasticity, flush out toxins, and prevent dryness. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water daily to keep your skin hydrated and supple. This is absolutely crucial and to keep on top of this try to drink a glass of water first thing to kick start hydration before breakfast. Then drink a glass of water before lunch and dinner it will help fill you up prior to eating and ensure a good routine to keep up with hydration. Lastly a glass before brushing your teeth in the evening makes it easier to keep up with hydration on the go.

2. Use Sunscreen Daily

Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is crucial in preventing premature ageing. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, even on cloudy days. This simple step not only prevents wrinkles and sunspots but also lowers the risk of skin cancer.

This is one of the most important steps to premature ageing. Its super hard to follow as the greasy formulations cause acne or can feel sticky when used. Why not try a mineral based spf 50? Non-sticky and good for acne prone skin! Try using a roll on or stick spf for the face if you are super busy and on the go. Maybe even a day cream with spf 30 can help as moisturising and protection is done in one step.

Remember to reapply during the day but also keep out of the sun or face shaded between 11-3pm. Use a SPF daily even during cloudy or winter months. Don't forget to apply to undereyes, upper eyelids, neck and lips.

3. Follow a Healthy Diet

Eating a diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals is beneficial for your skin. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats in your meals to nourish your skin from the inside out. Avoid processed foods and excessive sugar, which can accelerate ageing. Remember to take regular fish oils containing omega 3 and supplements like vitamin c and vitamin e will help.

4. Establish a Skincare Routine

Consistent skincare habits can significantly impact your skin's health. Cleanse, tone, moisturize, and use serums suitable for your skin type regularly. Don't forget to exfoliate weekly to remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover, revealing fresh and glowing skin. Usually

salicyclic acid based exfoliants like deep cleaninsing pads, washes or even face masks can help. We recommned to exfoliate the skin chemically or mechanically using face scrubs. Using a retinol is one the best things you can do to anti-age the skin. Retinol from 0.1% can help the skin from ageing and is advised to be used at night 2-3 times a week. As the skin adapts you will notice the skin remodelling and feeling smoother and tighter.

Dermatologist tip:

Boosting collagen in the skin helps keep the skin looking healthier, glowing and more plump!! Collagen drinks and supplements have no evidence base to help promote better skin as the molecule is simply too large to be absorbed into the blood. The best way to boost collagen is either by trauma like lasers/microneedling to encourage skin to heal or stimulation by injecting high dose hyaluronic acid injections in the skin like dermal fillers or skin boosters. This helps to slow down our ageing process whilst reversing effects of sundamage.

5. Get Sufficient Sleep

Quality sleep is essential for skin regeneration and repair. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night to allow your skin cells to rejuvenate. Lack of sleep can lead to dull skin, dark circles, and premature ageing, so prioritize restful sleep for vibrant and youthful-looking skin. Try using a silk pillow case for gentle compression on the face and improve hair quality.

Incorporating these five strategies into your daily routine can go a long way in protecting your skin from premature ageing and maintaining a healthy complexion. Remember, consistency is key in skincare, so make these habits a priority for long-lasting skin health.
