8 Antiaging Skincare Tips
Dr Veronique Simon Blog December 2016

Find the right cleanser for your skin type

Cleansing is a mundane task, but it is the backbone of a great skincare regime. The trick is finding the right cleanser that washes without stripping your skin. 

Foam cleansers: Good for oily skin types or those prone to breakouts. 

Oil cleansers: If your skin is feeling dry, it's worth swapping your evening cleanser for an oil-based one. They're great for taking off make-up too. 

Cream cleansers: These work on all skin types, but for a deeper cleanse employ a muslin cloth to remove it. 

Take off your make-up every night

Never go to bed with a dirty face. Always remove all makeup and wash your face with a mild cleanser before bed. Going to bed with a face full of make-up can cause break outs.

Eat your hydration

By eating your water, you are not only hydrating with H2O, but you are also helping your body to be strong and healthy.

Cucumbers are a great example as they are 96% water, and they also contain nutrients, vitamins and fibre.

Don’t over look eye cream

The skin around your eyes is the thinnest, so it shows the first signs of aging. Even if you’re in your 20’s, preventive care now will keep your eyes looking healthy for years to come. 

Applying your eye cream 

Using your ring finger gently pat your cream into your skin, from the inner corner outwards. Dragging and rubbing too hard can exacerbate wrinkles.

Beauty sleep

You hear this from me regularly but sleep deprivation and stress can cause hormonal changes that make your body more susceptible to break outs. It can be tricky for some but your skin will thank you.

Don’t squeeze

As tempting as it might be, popping and picking those spots will just push more dirt and bacteria into your pores, which results in more break outs.

Seal your skin with moisturizer

Moisturizer protects & improves your skin. Even if you have oily skin or breakouts, you can use a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer daily, and the best time to moisturize your skin is within minutes of getting out of the bath or shower.
