8 Ways You Can Slow Down The Signs of Ageing
by Andrea Young
Easy Tips And Tricks That Can Make A Huge Difference!
Did you wake up one morning and notice a new wrinkle and think, 'how did that get there and how can I stop it?'.
WE FEEL YOU! One thing you must know, it's never too late (or early!!) to start your anti-ageing skincare routine!
So, where do you start? With brands screaming at you left right and centre about their newest product how do you choose? It can be super overwhelming (not to mention expensive when things don't live up to your expectations!).
We know it's tough, so we have it all in one place for you!
Tip #1: Add BodyCo's Anti-Ageing Face Oil to your Morning Skin Care Routine!
Enriched with superfood oils, this all natural Face Oil will leave your skin nourished and hydrated, while visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
As a BONUS - we all know how important it is to protect your skin from UV damage, this product has its own natural, inbuilt UV and DNA protector! (It's like it ticks all the skin care essential boxes!)
Use 3-10 (or however much you want) drops to your hand and apply every morning to clean, dry skin.
It's suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Never be afraid to use oil on oily skin! (It actually helps to balance the sebum and your over all complexion!)
The oil is non greasy and absorbs quickly into the skin so you can get on with your day.
Tip #2: Don't Forget Your Neck! (And the Rest of Your Body, For That Matter)
Just giving your face love alone is not enough!
Give your body some attention with our Body Oil range.
Do you have dry skin? Try our Hydrate Body Oil. (It's specially formulated to give moisture back to even the driest of skins).
Apply the sprays to the arms, legs and torso after bathing. (Washing actually dehydrates the skin, so make sure to keep it soft and supple)
All the Body Oils are natural, non greasy and quickly absorbed by the skin (so you won't need to wait to 'dry' before putting on your clothes!)
Tip #3: Add some Anti-Ageing Foods to your diet
Your skin represents what you put in your body, so treat it well with anti-ageing foods. Choose delicious recipes that include things like;
- Red Pepper
- Avocado (Avocado Seed Oil is also used in our Anti-Ageing Face Oil)
- Sweet Potatoes
Tip #4: ALWAYS Remove Your Make Up.
Never, ever, EVER go to bed with make up on. It can significantly speed up the ageing process!!
Tip #5: Drink More Water
Your skin is your largest organ, and the last of your organs to get the benefits of water. Make sure you're getting AT LEAST two litres in EVERY SINGLE DAY! If you're someone who works out, you'll need more. If you're spending a lot of the day, you'll need more. In the warmer months, you'll need more.
A little trick to get your required amount of water in - aim to have at LEAST 1/2 your daily water requirements before lunch.
Tip #6: Get Some Well Deserved R&R
Stress is absolutely EVIL to the ageing process. Even though it's normal to stress in life, try to give yourself one day a week to switch off. Self love really is so important for so many reasons!
Read a book, go for a walk, relax in a bath... Love yourself first.
Tip #7: Do a Face Mask / Peel Once a Week.
This will help to get rid of dead, old skin and bring out your new, younger skin. Some masks may cause breakouts, and that is fine. Actually, it's great! That means it is working and getting any gunk out of your skin.
If you have a big event coming up, do the mask or peel two nights before. Your skin will still look gorgeous.
Tip #8: Add BodyCo's Night Repair Face Oil to Your Night Time Routine.
Jam packed with AMAZING natural goodies, including Cacao Oil Absolute and Sweet Almond Oil, it is the perfect end to your day!
The omega rich oils used in this will nourish and rejuvenate your skin while you sleep.
Use 3-10 drops to your hand and apply to clean, dry skin before you go to bed. You don't need anything else!
Our secret trick: the oil also has Lavender Pure essential Oil in it, which will not only relax the skin, but also your mind. Put an extra drop on your finger and massage into your temples for a calming feeling to get a better night sleep (particularly for those who have trouble sleeping or are feeling particularly stressed).
Enjoy your younger looking skin,
