It's never too early to age elegantly

Unfortunately after the age of 20, the collagen produced in the dermis layer reduces by one percent, EVERY year! But you can disrupt the natural ageing process by treating the individual layers with targeted skincare.

There’s no right or wrong age to start with anti-ageing treatments and skincare. To look fresh and vibrant no matter what your age, the earlier you start the better!

From around the age of 25 the first signs of aging will start to become apparent on the surface of the skin. Fine lines usually appear first, followed by wrinkles, a loss of volume and a loss of elasticity that becomes more noticeable over time.

Your skin is made up of different layers so to disrupt the natural ageing process or “age your best life”,  these layers need to be looked after in a specific way.

The epidermis or outer layer of skin protects against environmental factors such as UV rays from sun exposure and bacteria. We keep this layer clean, and nourished with powerful antioxidant ingredients. Protected from UV rays with high SPF and well hydrated through a good diet and water.

The next layer is the dermis. This is rich in collagens and other proteins and is responsible for the skin’s strength and elasticity.

Unfortunately after the age of 20, the collagen produced in the dermis layer reduces by one percent EVERY year! As we age the existing collagen and elastin fibres becomes weaker, thinner, less elastic while the muscles and fat cells become smaller. All these changes contribute to wrinkles and sagging.

I like to think of the dermis layer as the scaffolding of the face. It’ also where you will carry muscle tension. And tension can affect how the skin appears on top of it. Think of fondant on a badly baked cake.

Enter the Face Sculptor, a roller able to mimic the techniques and manipulations used in manual facial massage: a technique btw that dates back many, many years and has roots in China.

Using manual massaging techniques will benefit the skin in many ways but for the sake of time let’s focus on 3 key benefits to the dermis:

  1. Drains toxins from the lymph nodes
    Lymph nodes are located across the face and neck. Toxins that are left to stagnate can leave your skin looking puffy, dull and grey.
     
  2. Increases blood flow to the skin
    Increased blood flow means more oxygen and more nutrients. Both of which will help this layer to produce more collagen
     
  3. Releases muscle tension
    We squint at small screens and clench our muscles from stress every day. So when you work away tension, especially in the jaw, neck and 11 lines (the two vertical lines between your eyebrows), you will feel a noticeable difference in the firmness of your skin.
