What really happens when your skin ages
From tiny creases along your eyes to increasing dullness, we go deep beneath the surface to discover what’s really happening to your skin’s appearance over time.
Maybe you’ve noticed that your skin isn’t as bouncy as it used to be recently. Or it’s the surprise appearance of little dry patches that doesn’t seem to go away, even though your skin has always been perfectly balanced. Change is one of life’s few constants, and that applies to your skin too — even if you can’t always see what’s going on. Here’s what’s really happening when your skin ages, and how you can help prevent these visible skin aging signs to keep your skin looking gorgeous.
It loses its natural glow
Radiant skin glows naturally, but maintaining it takes work. As you get older, your skin gets thinner and drier, and has a harder time getting rid of old dead skin cells from the surface. Over time, these skin cells build up to give you a dull, ashy appearance — basically, the gunk on your face starts stealing your glow.
Reclaim your radiance with a clarifying toner using Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids, which helps remove dead skin cells to reveal healthy, youthful-looking skin beneath. A gentle nightly massage while applying your moisturiser will also boost blood circulation to your face for a rosy-cheeked flush that looks like you’ve just stepped out of a facial.
