As we get older, skin produces less collagen and elastin (youth-boosting fibres that keep the complexion smooth and plump), which are also damaged by unhealthy habits such as smoking and sun exposure. The result is the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, however, there’s lots you can do to reduce their appearance, and prevent them from forming prematurely, too. Here are our top tips:
Moisturise – it plumps up skin making fine lines and wrinkles appear less deep.
Be sun savvy – wear sunscreen to protect cells from damaging UV rays.
Try face massage – to relax pent-up expressions like frowning and worry lines.
Add miracle molecules – products with Matrixyl, retinol and vitamin C help boost collagen.
Exfoliate – to remove dead skin cells which exaggerate the appearance of fine lines.
Use a wrinkle-filler product to instantly plump up skin or a primer with light-diffusers to soften the look of fine lines
