CAUSES OF PREMATURE SKIN AGEING
As we get older, our skin faces more chnallenges. Cell production slows and environment and genetic factors such as sun damage, pollution and poor diet become more evident. As result, mature skin looses its firmness and moisture, and requires more nourishing textures and active ingredients to work deep inside the skin.
TIPS FOR TAKING CARE OF MATURE SKIN
- Get to know your skin. It's important to understand how your skin reacts to
changes in the environment so you can treat it effectively
- Follow a simple daily skincare routine. You should at least cleanse and
moisturise, everyday, and ideally add in a serum to treat
- Stay hydrated! Drink plenty of water everyday
- Eliminate stress as much as possible.
- Take a look at our
Spa of the World Hub here for ideas on relaxation techniques.
THE STRENGTHENING & DEFINING TREE MASSAGE
"Massaging your skin is great for boosting circulation, bringing oxygen to the
area and helping remove toxins. It also warms the skin, which makes it
easier for moisturising formulas to sink in"
