Hydration is one of the most important factors in our skins health and appearance. Hydrated skin is more plump, elastic, and resilient.

Whereas dehydrated skin is weaker, meaning it’s less able to perform its protective role against environmental damage that causes aging - this includes things like UV rays and pollution. You should apply a hydrating moisturiser twice a day, morning and night, to keep skin smooth and supply.

It’s also a good idea to wear a hat and sunglasses, to reduce your overall exposure to sunlight and protect your face from premature signs of aging.

Remove this layer of dead skin once a week using a gentle exfoliator, to reveal a fresh layer of radiant skin. Exfoliation has also been shown to speed up the natural process of skin and collagen renewal, which helps slow the aging process.

Taking supplements, such as Vitamin C and E, can also help to protect your skin and reduce the visible signs of aging.
