3 Ways on How To Prevent Premature Ageing

September 20, 2019

The ageing process is different for each person, but there are certain signs of ageing that are considered “premature” if you notice them before you turn 35. Our environment and lifestyle choices can cause our skin to age prematurely. We will discuss here 3 ways on how to prevent premature ageing.

1. Use an anti-ageing sunscreen

The sun emits a type of energy known as the ultraviolet radiation. There are 2 types of UV radiation— UVA rays which is mainly the culprit behind Premature Ageing (wrinkles, dark spots, and sagging skin) while UVB rays is responsible for sunburn, and both contribute to skin cancer.

One way to protect your skin from premature ageing and of course skin cancer is to wear a sunscreen that has SPF and is broad-spectrum.

SPF only measures protection against UVB so it’s important to wear a ‘broad spectrum’ sunscreen which blocks both UVA and UVB.

2. Avoid dragging your skin to reduce ageing effects

Our skin is very delicate and we want to avoid excessively tugging it whenever we apply our skincare or makeup products because this can cause our skin to show early signs of ageing. Mishandling of the skin especially around our eyes like aggressive removal of eye makeup and heavily dragging eye care products and any other skincare product unto our skin can cause eye wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other skin irritations. It is especially important to take extra care with the under-eye area which has thinner and more delicate skin.

The fix: Use your ring finger in applying your skincare/makeup products. Our ring finger is said to have the lightest touch and it distributes an equal amount of pressure when used upon the skin.

Using a Jade Roller is also proven effective in applying skincare products like serum and cream for complete absorption while lifting our skin.

3. Use products with anti-ageing cosmeceutical base

The term cosmeceutical, according to the dictionary, is defined as a cosmetic that has or is claimed to have medicinal properties, especially anti-ageing ones.

Cosmeceuticals are currently used for adjunct treatment of skin conditions, as well as for anti-ageing. Dermatologist incorporates these evidence-based active ingredients for skin healing into makeup.

Here are some active ingredients for anti-ageing

– Phytoceramides

– DNA from salmon roe

– Oligopeptides

Botox Treatment Simplified by a Dermatologist

Botox Treatments by Dermatologist

Botox treatments were originally introduced as medical treatments for muscle spasticity such as cerebral palsy, some forms of headaches and reducing excessive localised sweating in the armpits. The treatment has come a long way since in making an impressionable mark in the beauty industry.

Botox are now a highly sought after, non-invasive and successful medical treatment for those looking to erase those wrinkles or facial lines for the quick dip into the fountain of youth. With rapid advancements in medical technology since the 2000s, there is no reason the late Joan Rivers or well renowned fashion designer Donatella Versace should scare you when it comes to botox.

Let’s face it, aging is both biological and environmental but fret not, there is something we can now do about our laugh lines, crows feet at eyes or scowl lines on your forehead from the constant smiling, squinting and frowning we subject our faces to. A botox treatment could very well be the solution to all of your worrisome lines. By blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, your wrinkles and facial lines tend to relax and soften, giving you a smooth finish. For a youthful glow, discuss with your dermatologist for botox treatments combined with suitable lasers and cosmeceutical skincare.

Side effects of botox treatment

However, to avoid common and significant complications such as ptosis — the drooping of eyelids — or to reduce side effects such as headaches and bruisings, it is advised that you visit an accredited dermatologist (find an accredited Singapore dermatologist here) instead of cosmetologists and aesthetic clinics for your botox treatments.

For a safer and more natural result, opt for a dermatologist who specialises in both medical and cosmetic dermatology. Caveats? Ladies who are expecting and are currently breastfeeding or those with certain medical conditions, botox is inadvisable. Otherwise, it’s the perfect go-to treatment for a fresher renewed look with minimal downtime and quick results.
