The Get-Started-Now Guide to Slowing Down Ageing

February 06, 2013

These days, 'anti ageing' is a buzz term in beauty, where wrinkle-reducing potions reign supreme. But there's more to creating a younger-looking you than just buying the latest products for your skin. Here are some other things to consider when age-proofing your lifestyle:


You'd be surprised at how big a difference this can make to your overall skin quality. Chronic sun exposure can cause skin pigmentation, wrinkling, and discolouration, but a good sunscreen can help keep signs of ageing at bay.

Healthy eating and living

Eat healthily and staying fit benefits more than your insides. Regular workouts and nutritionally balanced meals can help slow ageing, and even increase your life span. So avoid dieting dangers and opt for sensible food habits to nourish your skin.

Alcohol and cigarettes

While we all love to let our hair down, cocktails and smoky bars aren't the most revitalizing choices for our youth and beauty. For glowing skin that turns back the years, consider cutting back on booze, and for a fresher look that's not only healthier, but cheaper too, get help to ditch the cigarettes.


It may take a little more time each day, but a good skincare routine makes for not only healthier skin, but younger-looking skin too. Washing and exfoliating can help prevent everything from blemishes or blackheads to wrinkles or fine lines. And consider your unique skin type - it could require special care, whether it's oily, normal, dry, or combination.


Apart from choosing a healthier lifestyle, make sure you incorporate as much professional advice into your anti-aging plan as possible, including a qualified naturopath if necessary. Ideally you should be able to incorporate their suggestions about vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fats, and more into your everyday routine.

Cosmetic procedures

When it comes to turning back time, surgical treatments can often reverse any skin damage that has already occurred, and slow down visible signs of ageing. A range of non-surgical treatments, such as lip enhancements or anti-wrinkle injections, are another way to trim years off your age and look younger, faster.
