Fighting against early ageing signs

When it comes to fighting against the common signs of ageing, the earlier you start to take action, the better. However, that doesn’t mean that it is ever too late to make improvements. Here, we are going to be talking about a few ageing issues which a lot of people worry about, as well as a few ways to fight back against them. Let’s get started.

Sun Damage

As well as causing premature ageing, too much sun exposure can also lead to more serious conditions such as cancer. So, you need to wear sunscreen products which protect against UVA and UVB ultraviolet rays whenever you can. Remember, you can still get sunburned on cloudy days as well. If you notice some skin damage, you can work retinol into your skincare  routine which plays a big role in diminishing the appearance of sunspots.

Fine Lines

A good moisturising routine should be an integral part of your daily life if you are intending to fight back against the appearance of fine lines. You could also try out visiting a cosmetic clinic & aesthetic treatments centre. Another technique that you could try is to change your makeup as the wrong formulas can end up emphasising the appearance of lines. Be careful of powders as these tend to absorb oil and moisture. A cream foundation or tinted moisturiser tend to be the better options.


As you get older, the top layer of your skin starts to become dull and you may lose some of your glow. A relatively easy remedy to this issue is to exfoliate on a regular basis with glycolic acid to improve cell turnover and give your skin a boost. If you are looking for quicker results, you could try heading to your dermatologist for a pro-strength glycolic peel.

Puffy eyes

The area of skin around your eyes is already thin, and this is only set to get thinner as you get older. Two factors which can exacerbate the appearance of Dark circles  or puffiness around your eyes are salt and alcohol, so you should try to reduce your intake of both of these substances. A cold compress and some eye cream are two techniques which you could look to incorporate into your skincare routine. The worst thing that you can do to your eyes is to rub them, so this is a habit you should aim to get out of.


Dry skin is a natural sign of ageing on its own, but it also plays a role in making a lot of the other ones even worse. Moisturiser should become your best friend, and it is the best line of defence in battling an environment which is always trying to dry out your skin. A hydrating mask from time to time can also make all the difference.

So, hopefully these techniques provide you some joy when battling against early ageing signs. Ultimately, these are things that you can incorporate into your daily life to keep your skin looking its best.

How to Spend Less Time on Your Morning Beauty Regime

If you’ve ever woken up in a panic because you’ve pressed the snooze alarm one time too many and now you don’t have time to complete your morning beauty regime to your satisfaction, then it might be time to make a few changes.

What if I told you that you could sleep in a little longer every morning and still have ample time to primp and preen yourself to your satisfaction? You’d be delighted right? Well, let me tell you that it is possible to always look your best in less time – all you need to do is make a few simple changes…

Plan in Advance

The key to reducing the time spent on your morning regime is thinking about it in advance. Work out what kind of look you want to achieve in the morning and which things are taking up time in the A.M that don’t need to. Then, take steps to eliminate them. For example, if you’re forever battling with facial hair have permanent facial hair removal done or if you have trouble taming an unruly head of hair in the morning, get a more practical cut that is easy to look after and which can be tamed in a matter of minutes. Do this to cut out as many of your morning ‘essentials’ as possible by taking care of them ahead of time, and you’re halfway there already.

Wash with Cold Water

If you wash with cold water instead of hot, not only will it help to really wake you up, but it will firm up your skin, which means you can skip the toning part of your morning Beauty  routine. Trust me, it really works.

Use Dry Shampoo

If you often wake up with hair that’s a little oily and in need of a wash, skip the shower and head straight for the dry shampoo. That way, not only do you not have to wash it, but you don’t have to worry about getting it dry before you get out of the door either.

Use Heated Rollers

Most women don’t use heated rollers much anymore, but if you want your hair to have lots of volume and you want it to be basically ready-to-go when you get up in the morning, using them is a great way to achieve your aims, and they’re cheap!

Invest in a Multiple Use Makeup

If you use separate serums for the face and eye area, you are wasting time, especially when you can buy numerous products like  which will cover the whole of your face and help you to maintain your youthful good looks. In fact, any beauty products you can find that serve more than one function, such as foundation with SPF protection, which eliminates the need for a daily sunscreen application, should be used instead of separates if you really want to save time.

If you implement even half of these ideas, you will shave some serious time off your morning beauty regime, and you know what that means – more sleep!

Speak soon,

Lotsa love
