While ageing itself isn’t reversible, tweaks to skincare and lifestyle choices can help reduce its impact on the skin. Signs of premature ageing are exacerbated by environmental and lifestyle factors, as well as structural changes to the skin such as the thinning of the epidermis over time, the slowing of sebum production and cell turnover, and the skin’s compromised ability to retain moisture.
We all age, but if you’re starting to see the signs of it on your skin (cue fine lines, pigmentation and skin that looks a little dull) don’t freak out, smart skincare choices can help to combat the physical effects of ageing on the skin.
We all know Skinstitut. The OGs of cosmeceutical skincare, who are renowned for their transformative products at prices that won’t break the bank. They have recently launched their new ageing-focused EXPERT skincare range. This range was created in close collaboration with their Medical Advisory Council, a panel of leading Australian dermatologists and doctors, to ensure maximum results through stable formulations and active ingredients at therapeutic thresholds.
The six-product range features a combination of four innovative hero complexes of powerful active ingredients to create change in the skin and specifically target the signs of premature ageing.
