Don’t just moisturise, moisturise smarter

Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, which helps skin to retain moisture with each use. Lotions and cream which contains hyaluronic acid as well as peptides and niacinimide (Vitamin B3 reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve texture and elasticity.

Cut back on Sugar

Step away from those donuts! Foods high in sugar can cause insulin levels in your body to rise. This results in inflammation, which breaks down collagen and elastin, the vital framework of the skin that keeps it plump and firm. Opt for naturally sweetened items (i.e. fruit) and whole-grain complex carbohydrates over white breads and other simple sugars.

Carry a SPF infused hand cream everywhere!

Using sunscreen on your hands, particularly when driving (harmful UV rays can penetrate car windows), staves off brown spots, one of the telltale signs of age. Be sure to stash some in your purse for handy use on the go.

Don’t neglect your neck

Your neck gets as much environmental exposure as your face, but it rarely gets the same level of treatment. It only takes a few seconds longer to dab down below your chin – and it's just as important. The amino-peptide-rich formula works overnight to help plump and regenerate surface cells and add hydration.
