Your skin type predicts skin wrinkling
You might be cursing your oily skin for when your makeup run, but there’ll come a day when you’re thankful for it. Compared to skin types that are inclined to dryness, oily skin has the benefit of stayinng moisturised naturally, and tends to wrinkle much later in life. If your skin is prone to dryness, make sure you keep it adequately moisturised and well hydrated to scale back on potential Botox bills in your latter years.

Debts incurring vices
A drag of ciggie or another shot of Tequila may give you a hit of pleasure at that moment in time, but they’ll do nothing to the way you look in the years to come. Days of hard living with many a night drinking and partying it up be reflected on your appearance long after those dancing shoes were hung.
The eyes may be the windows to the soul, but they are also a dead giveaway to a woman’s actual age. The skin around the eyes are naturally thinner with a paucity of sebaceous glands, often bearing the brunt of aging and displayed the first signs of it. While previous technologies failed to deliver consistent results or cannot be safely applied to these sensitive areas, the situation is revolutionised by the introduction of NeoGen PSR therapy. Proven to have a high safety margin without any risk of injury to the eyes, NeoGen PSR employs a unique nitrogen plasma technology to provide consistent, controlled rapid heating over treated areas, stimulating collagen remodeling in deep tissue to regenerate and restore the skin’s natural architecture with significant resultant tightening. It can be safely applied to both the upper and lower eyelids, as well as the wider periorbital region, providing exceptional all round periorbital rejuvenation by addressing fine under-eye lines, Crow’s Feet, dark eye circles and droopy eyelids, restoring aging peepers by putting back that twinkle that somehow got lost with the passage of time.

U.V. I don’t love you
If you grew up in the late 70s and spend hours upon hours at the beach, by the pool and in the solarium roasting yourself to a sickening golden tan that rivaled then poster girls, Bo Derek and Farah Fawcett, it’s most likely that you’re now faced with repercussions with a heavy price to pay. As we age, our skin tends to show sun damage that we accrued from a lifetime of sun exposure, and the UV destruction often starts deep in the dermis and surfaces many years later.
Our skin contains two vital proteins, collagen and elastin that help maintain its structure, and when one is constantly exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays, these proteins start to break down giving rise to changes associated with sun damaged skin. Unlike natural aging which is characterized by thinning of skin and the accentuation of expression lines into fine wrinkles; accelerated photo-aging is distinguished by coarse wrinkles, leathery textural alterations, abundant freckling, lost of firmness and skin discoloration.While agreeably the warmth of sun rays is one of Life’s simplest pleasures which shouldn’t be denied, enjoy it in moderation and responsibly with the judicious use of sunscreen.

Make the best of your sleeping hours
“Beauty sleep” is not just an old wives’ tale as it has been shown that clocking enough hours of eye shut is essential for healthy, youthful looking skin. Sleep allows the skin to restore its natural balance and increases the effectiveness of certain skin care ingredients, potentially providing more benefits to your complexion. Poor sleep habits will bear it’s toll on the skin, ranging fro dark eye rings to dehydration and acne breakouts.
“Growth hormone is released during our sleep cycle and studies have linked this to collagen stimulation and rebuilding of tissues for healthy looking skin.” Explains Dr. Toby Hui, senior medical consultant with SW1 Clinic (formerly known as The Sloane Clinic). “The application of specially formulated skincare products with anti-aging and nourishing ingredients is best done before bedtime as cellular renewal of our skin is most active while we sleep, helping your skin gain the most benefits with peak absorption of these nutrients.”
