Overexposure to the sun is the main cause of premature skin ageing - also known as photoageing. UVA rays from the sun are primarily responsible, but high-energy visible (HEVIS) light can also cause oxidative stress that damages cellular DNA. As a result, skin starts to form wrinkles, sag and develop pigmentation issues prematurely.
Ensuring skin is properly protected year-round, using superior sun care products and the correct skincare products, at different ages, can help to prevent and tackle photoageing.
In your 20-30s
Early signs of photoageing start to show in your mid to late 20s, such as fine lines and mild blemishes.
It’s important to start applying sun protection on a daily basis at a young age, to prevent long-term damage. We also recommend that you look out for suncare products that include protection from blue light such as Skin Affair’s Organic SPF15 Moisturiser which provides the ultimate prevention against sun damage and UV rays whilst moisturising the skin.
Also look for skincare containing vitamin B3 to get ahead of sunspots. Skin Affair’s Brightening Serum visibly brightens, helps revive dull skin and targets dark spots caused by pollution & harmful UV rays.
In your 30-40s
Mild photoageing, smile lines, prominent pores and early age spots are common in your 30s.
Protect skin against further photoaging with Dr Grandel’s UV LSF 30 Serum. Without having to forget the usual care products. This product comes into action when UV protection is needed and contains Vitamin E which protects the skin against free radicals.
Look at skincare that contains Hyaluronic Acid which plumps up the skin and visibly reduces signs of ageing such as Skin Affair’s Hydra-Boost Serum. This serum consists of hyaluronic compounds for multi-depth hydration while plumping and smoothing the appearance of wrinkles.
50s and over
Advanced photoaging, deeper wrinkles, visible age spots and dilated capillaries are some of the skin concerns we can expect in our 50s and onward.
Products containing peptides and retinol are amazing for skin of this age.
GRANDEL Renew III rich is a regenerating cream protecting collagen fibres and improving elasticity. The cream contains peptides and nourishes and rejuvenates tired skin.
Skin Affair’s Anti-Aging Serum contains retinol and stimulates collagen synthesis for plumper looking skin.
