Well… It has come to the end of the Simple as 1,2,3 series. This time I am going to share tips on how to take care of ageing skin.

Everyone ages, there is no deny on that and we all hope we will age gracefully, don’t we? For those who do not wish to seek for immediate and drastic results such as plastic surgery, do read on as I share three products that will help prevent ageing skin. And if you already have signs of ageing, hopefully these will help in reducing the signs.

3 key things to remember for people who has ageing skin: –

1. Dark Spots

Always wear sunscreen before you start your day. I cannot stress this enough. UV is the number one cause of premature ageing. Not only UV damages your skin by giving you fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots will also appear.

If you live in Australia like I do, I recommend a sunscreen that is at least SPF30+. Remember, if you apply 2 layers, it does not equal to SPF60. So please remember to reapply within the recommended hours as indicated on the package of your sunscreen.

For this, I recommend Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50. It is currently priced at $106.00 for 50ml.

2. Dull Skin

It may be inevitable for ageing skin to look dull and lose the glow you had when you were younger. The slow regeneration of skin is the cause, so it is worth to add one more product to your beauty regimen.

A product that will help to regenerate skin cells and restore your glow would be the best.

Therefore, I recommend Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate which also helps with wrinkles.

It is currently priced at $68.00 for 30ml.

3. Sagging and Lines

Lines and sagginess are just one more thing for us ladies to worry about, isn’t it? One more big problem throwing at us after what we go through daily. Sigh… Fear not! There is a product that I highly recommend as I am approaching my thirties and fine lines begin to appear and show no signs of budging.

This Repairwear Uplifting Firming Cream from Clinique work wonders as it reduces the lines on my face. It also claims to restore firmness and elasticity. Perhaps it is worth to try if you begin to have ageing skin problems.

It is currently priced at $110.00 for 50ml.
