Beat the signs of ageing with targeted nutrition and skincare

Did You Know?

As we age, our skin’s needs for care and support change in order to keep it looking healthy. Youthful and healthy looking skin appears smooth, radiant, hydrated, even toned, and firm without the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and redness.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology: Production of collagen and elastin slows down a dramatic 65% between the ages of 20 and 80. The thickness of the skin decreases a staggering 6% every 10 years. The sun causes 90–95% of wrinkles, lines, as well as brown, red and white discolourations on our bodies.

Our biology and genes account for only about 10% of the visible signs of ageing.  In general, the darker the skin, the less visible the signs of ageing. and thicker skin does not show ageing as fast as thinner, more fragile skin types – which is why men’s skin ages more slowly.

The other 90% of our skin age is down to external factors such as smoking, too much alcohol, poor nutrition, and – the biggest culprit –  sun exposure. Free radicals are considered to be a major contributor to the ageing process. Free radicals are created by UV exposure, pollution, stress, smoking, and normal metabolic processes. Free radicals bring about changes that lead to the degradation of the skin’s firmness (collagen) and elasticity (elastin) that is characteristic of photo aged skin.

The visible symptoms of extrinsic ageing include: wrinkling, sagging, discolouration, pigmented spots, thin skin, spidery lines, and lack of colour.

We all want radiant, youthful-looking skin. So what can we do to minimise – or reverse – the process? Continue reading “Beat the signs of ageing with targeted nutrition and skincare”

You’re just 30 days away from a more healthy lifestyle

We are learning so much about how our diet and lifestyle affects every part of our well-being. Many of the most common killers are avoidable, and we all know the impact obesity is having on our society and health system.

I use and recommend the Arbonne 30 Days to Healthy Living and Beyond. It’s not a diet, it’s a way to incorporate better eating habits into your life. It has changed my life and it could change yours.  Continue reading “You’re just 30 days away from a more healthy lifestyle”
