Do you feel like you are ageing faster than your friends? Do fine lines seem to appear overnight? Ageing is inevitable for all of us, however there are some things we may be doing that are speeding up the process.

We don’t simply need to accept an ageing appearance. When we understand what causes skin to age faster we can address these factors. We give you our advice for the leading facial rejuvenation treatments that can slow down and in some cases, reverse the signs of ageing.


Causes of Premature Ageing

Not wearing sunscreen

This is often sited at the number 1 cause for early onset of ageing. The sun is powerful and can even cause our skin damage on cloudy days and through glass when we are indoors. In the harsh Australian sun, it’s essential to wear a good quality sunscreen every day. This leads us to the next point;

Don’t forget your hands and neck

The majority of people will just apply sunscreen and moisturiser to their faces. But our necks and hands are exposed to the elements just as much and as such, suffer the signs of ageing in the same ways. Our hands and neck can show signs of ageing with sun spots, dryness and loss of elasticity and firmness. Applying sunscreen and a good moisturiser to our face, neck and hands daily will assist in slowing down the ageing process.

Lifestyle choices

Next to sun exposure, certain lifestyle choices can also be negatively affecting our skin. Smoking is a key contributor to premature ageing as well as drinking alcohol, a poor diet and stress. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, balanced diet and exercising regularly will assist in keeping your youthful glow for longer.

Failing to remove makeup before bed

It can be easy to forget or fall asleep before you get the chance, but removing your makeup before bed is essential for maintaining youthful and healthy skin. Leaving makeup on clogs up our pores and can lead to breakouts, complexion issues and dryness. A good cleanser to remove all the dirt and makeup will minimise these issues.

There are many treatments for treating the signs of ageing, depending on your concerns, goals, budget and individual issues and needs, several options may be available for you.
