It’s all about the collagen
It’s no secret that collagen is good for the skin and is known as a bit of a ‘fountain of youth’ ingredient, especially when wanting to fight the signs of ageing like wrinkles. Collagen is a substance that we produce in our skin that helps to keep a youthful appearance, but as we age, our collagen production starts to slow right down - cue the wrinkles! You can give your body a boost of collagen in a number of ways including drinking water, taking supplements and eating Vitamin C dense foods. Getting your daily dose of H2O flushes out unnecessary toxins and promotes the formation of collagen fibers. Alongside your 8 glasses per day, try to incorporate Vitamin C rich foods like citrus fruits and leafy greens to boost collagen production. “Aside from aging, the top reason people don’t have enough collagen is poor diet,” Dr. Elizabeth Bradley, MD says. “Your body can’t make collagen if it doesn’t have the necessary elements. To make sure your body has enough ingredients to make collagen, you may need to change what you eat or take dietary supplements. The same way you nourish collagen stores throughout your body will nourish your skin too.”
Say yes to eye cream
Eye products have been specifically formulated to treat under eye area concerns, specifically under eye bags, wrinkles and puffiness. Just like you wouldn’t miss your moisturising step in your skincare routine, you shouldn’t miss out eye cream either. Our eye area needs extra attention and considering our eyes age the most between the ages of 20 and 50 years old, it should be a ritual that we start while we’re young. One of our favourite eyes creams is Lifting & Firming Eye Serum, that aims to provide a radical anti-ageing solution. Combining ingredients R.N.A, Hyaluronic Acid and the magic C for Collagen, this powerful eye serum helps to revitalise skin for a firmer, younger looking eye contour area. Not only does it lift and firm the eye area, but it also combats puffiness, dark circles, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, whilst intensively hydrating the eye skin area.
Sleep yourself to brighter eyes
We all get a little worn out, especially at this time of the year, which is why getting at least 8 hours of beauty sleep per night is really important, not only for our health but also for a more youthful appearance. While we sleep, it gives our skin cells time to repair and regenerate before we start a new day. Collagen is also made while we snooze, so getting more shut-eye at night can also help fight the appearance of wrinkles. Aside from wrinkles, adequate sleep will also help ditch the dark circles and send those bags packing for good.
