Anti Ageing


Reena Sukdev Homeopath View profile

The age a woman would consider using anti wrinkle cream depends upon her individual state of skin health. The best would be to come into our WellSpa and get one of our qualified therapists to have a look at your skin condition and advise you on products that would suit your needs. The skin is exposed to many influences – both internally (eg. Nutrition) and externally (eg climate, sun exposure). This can result in a lack of moisture and ultimately premature ageing in the form of wrinkles. A general guideline would be to use skin products in the 20’s to promote hydration and not be too focused on anti-wrinkle creams at this stage. It is important to use a high factor sunblock of at least factor 20, as well as wearing a cap when out in the sun. Dermalogica has an excellent range of sunblock which is both hydrating and protective (many moisturisers have got sunblock in them so it makes it easier to make this part of your daily routine). You can inquire further about this at our WellSpa. It is also important to wear eye protection in the form of sunglasses when in bright conditions. This will not only protect your eyes and reduce the chance of cataracts, but also stop wrinkles as it it prevents you from squinting and the resultant wrinkles. It is also important to keep hydrated from within by drinking plenty of water, 2-3 litres a day. The most wrinkles that would be experienced in this age group would likely be related to laughter lines and not ageing wrinkles. And I think laughter is an excellent expression, so please don’t stop that. I would maybe consider using an anti wrinkle cream in the late 30’s only if really necessary.
Using an eye cream is a good idea because it is a very sensitive area and one of the first places where one notices wrinkle lines. The muscles in this area are generally too weak. Again, I would recommend a hydrating eye cream in the 20’s rather than a firming cream.
Do not use creams with mineral oils. Mineral oil is a petrol chemical derivative and very toxic. It prevents your skin from breathing. So even though your skin might feel soft initially it actually dries out your skin. Feel free to explore our range of Dr Hauschka, Decleor and Esse products which is not based on mineral oils but rather essential oils. Regards Reena
