Top Ways To Reduce Your Face Age

Hello everyone. One thing that many people fear in life is looking like their age. Many people try lots of different remedies and products to try and reduce the appearance in their ageing face. As much as this is a natural occurrence in life, there are a few things you can do to make your face look and feel younger.

Exercising regularly is a brilliant way to make your skin look more radiant and glowing. Exercising helps your body to circulate more nutrients, as well as oxygen, to your skin, which leaves that nice glowing effect. Exercise can leave you feeling tired and allow you to sleep more at night, the more sleep you get at night the more likely you are to reduce dark circles and bags under your eyes. As well as this, exercise reduces fat and builds muscle in your body, which prevents your skin from sagging.

The key to flawless and young skin is to look after your skin and by drinking water keeps your skin stays hydrated and in great condition. Drinking plenty of water prevents your body from losing its elasticity, which is how wrinkles start forming.

If you are a smoker then giving up smoking is the best thing for your health as well as to prevent your face from ageing. Smoking can cause your skin to wrinkle; it can cause a yellow undertone to your skin, especially on the nails and teeth. This will automatically make you appear older than what you are.

Washing your face too much can cause the appearance of wrinkles in your face. Tap water cause the skin to lose its protection of its natural oils and moisture. Stripping your skin of these factors opens up your skin to bacteria and doesn’t keep your skin moisturised or protected – which can cause wrinkles and dry skin because your skin is exposed.

Finally, as we get older, some of us tend to get the appearance of red veins across our cheekbones and noses. To kill those pesky unwanted veins try Broad Band Light – this helps to restore the skins flawless complexion and stops those veins from appearing.

Winter sun tips

Hello everyone.

Despite the lack of sun we see during the winter, it is still there and so are its UV rays. The rays from the sun still have an effect on our skin; we just can’t necessarily see them. The rays can cause wrinkles; discolouring of the skin that is exposed to the sun during the day and these rays even cause your blood vessels to dilate under your skin, which makes the skin appear red and blotchy.

To prevent this from happening, here are a few tips to help you out:

The number one prevention is to wear sun cream with an average SPF factor. If you’re exposed to lots of UV rays then the higher the SPF you wear the better protection your skin will have. One product I will always suggest is Heliocare 50 SPF (£17.50) for the summer months and 30 SPF for during the colder months.

Even though there is sun in the winter, the wind is still out too, which also has harsh effects on the skin. The wind can cause our skin to crack, especially on our hands, as they’re more likely to be exposed to harsh conditions. Using a moisturizer twice a day, in the morning and night, as well as during the day keeps your body hydrated, soft and prevents the wind from drying out your skin. One hand moisturizer I recommend is the OPI Nail Avoplex High intensity Nail and Hand Cream (around £17) because it is extremely nourishing and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

Carrying around a lip balm is always a good idea throughout the winter to prevent your lips from drying out and cracking, which can be extremely painful as they’re open wounds. Just like sun cream, lip balms with SPF factors in them are ideal for better protection from harsh weather conditions. Balms and creams such as the Natura Bissé Lip Recovery Balm (£42) is high end but it does the job. It saves your dry and flaking lips and soothes them back to health and more importantly protects them all day from the weather conditions.

How to look after your skin this Winter

For most of us, Winter is incredibly tough on our skin. The cold temperatures and lack of natural light means that a good skincare regime is even more important. Your skin can easily become dehydrated and sore from the dry, cold winds and indoor heat dries it out even further.
 
I’ve compiled some of my best tips for keeping your skin cared for in winter.
Winter 2
 
Cleansing and hydrating
 
In winter, we still have to clean our faces, it goes without saying that you should keep your face clean and remove make up. Cleansing the skin removes dirt and oil from the surface of the skin, that otherwise clogs your pores. However, in the winter it is even more important to replace these natural oils that can be lost with cleansing.
 
These nutrients need to be replaced by using a hydrator or serum. In winter, a small amount of intense serum can do wonders for skin, a more concentrated version of a hydrator. I absolutely love Avène Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum (£12.75), which is ultra-hydrating and doesn’t clog up your pores. In winter, we also forget that the skin still needs to be protected with SPF. A great product to use is Eucerin’s Sun Crème For Face SPF30 (£15)
avene
 
Harsh exfoliating scrubs and cleansers that may work wonders in the summer, but in winter, especially for those with dry skin, it’s better to use oil-based cleansers and gentle cleansers.  Shu Uemura (from £30) do a fantastic range of cleansing oils, which gently take off make up. For a balm, try Eve Lom’s Cleansing Balm (£40). Both cleanse the skin, without the harshness of gel cleansers and exfoliaters.
 
Dry skin?
 
In winter, those with dry skin and eczema can particularly suffer.  Sufferers of eczema usually inherit it, but it is made worse by perfumes and some metals, and usually comes along with asthma and hay fever. However, in the winter, eczema can be made a whole lot worse by central heating, which can make your skin itchy, dry, red and swollen.
winter 3
 
It is most important to use eczema products  in the winter, as the skin has a lot more to fight against. Speciality creams such as Dermalex Contact Eczema Cream (£11.99), combat symptoms of eczema. Making sure you use fragrance-free moisturisers can also help with this.
Diet can also contribute to eczema, so avoid foods such as simple carbohydrates (White bread, pasta etc), dairy and seafood, and aim for skin-nourishing foods such as avocado and olive oil.  Oily fish like salmon and tuna are particularly great for skin as omega 3 promotes skin regeneration.
 
Rehydrate
 
Skin can become dehydrated, especially in the winter. My number one tip is always to drink at least two litres of water a day. In cold weather it’s easy just to get by on tea and coffee, but act as diuretics and have the counter effect of dehydrating your body.
 
Water not only gives your complexion a boost, but encourages the production of collagen in the skin, which contributes to plumping and regenerating skin.
 water
Dehydration does not only mean dry skin, but fine lines can often appear on the face when the body is dehydrated, making your skin appear older, and blemishes will be exaggerated and exposed. By drinking water continuously throughout the day, you give your skin a chance to be at its best.
 
Alcohol is our skin’s worst enemy though, the toxins in alcohol drain away all the nutrients in your body, meaning that skin will appear less bright and nourished.  Always make sure if you’ve had a big night to rehydrate completely the next day.

Repairing your skin after Summer

Repairing your skin post summer – you need to factor in the change your skin has gone through and preparing your skin for the cold, winter months.

sunbathing

Sunbathing in the heat, even whilst wearing a high SPF can dry out the skin. Wearing a high SPF is something you need to remember to do. It might take longer for your tan to develop, your risk of skin damage is lower and the tan will last longer too. Trying to tan quickly by using a low factor SPF will increase the risk of damaging the skin and may also result in a sunburn. Once your skin is sunburnt, symptoms include pain and reddened skin are hard to reverse.

 

Products such as Heliocare (www.heliocare.co.uk) are great to protect your skin from UV andageing damage. Heliocare Gel Cream Colour SPF 50 offers advanced protectionboth on the skin and from within. It’s the only UV protection to contain Fernblock Photoimmunoprotection Technology – a plant extract clinically-proven to protect skin from the damaging effects from sun exposure.

heliocare

Dull, no-glow skin

Using sunscreen or a high SPF daily creates a thicker upper layer of skin.

Watch out for high factor sun creams these can stop you skin from breathing. Skin becomes thicker, harder and drier so remember to exfoliate! This will create a dewier look and help produce more collagen (which helps with anti-ageing).  I recommend you use products such as Clinique 7 Days Scrub Cream to create a more even skin tone, de-flakes, polishes and clears pores if you have spots.

 

Suntanned skin looks creased and weathered

Moisturise your tanned skin to keep it hydrated and prepares it for the up and coming winter months. Products such as Clairns’ Beauty Flash Balm are great for instant radiance and healthiness it injects even the most lacklustre of complexions.  For body, The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Body Lotion hydrates skin and leaves it smooth and moisturised.

 

If your skin is in really need of a pick me up, try out a treatment called Dermalux. It’s 30 minute non-invasive treatment that harnesses the power of pure light to accelerate the skins natural rejuvenation and repair process. I think it’s great to restore radiance and it only costs £60 a session or 12 sessions for £660 (www.leegarrett.net). This is also great if you want to reverse sun damage as well.

 

Body feels itchy and dry under clothing.

Skin might feel dry after a hot day and so remember to moisturise, if you unfortunately have peeling skin – keep cool, regular dips into swimming pool or cool shower and use a topical vitamin E cream to reduce the chances of scarring as well. Prevention is the best cure for peeling. Plan ahead and don’t get sunburnt in the first place. By the time your skin starts peeling, that means that the damage has already been done.

 

Eye area looks wrinkled and puffy from sunbathing

Use a retinol-enhanced eye cream every evening before going to bed as retinol may make your skin more susceptible to the sun. Retinol improves your skin’s levels of collagen and elastin so will reverse any signs of ageing that might have occurred in thesummer months. Use products such as This Works No Wrinkles Eye Repair (£39.50) as it helps minimize the appearance of dark circles and wrinkles and also contains light-reflecting properties to banish those tell tale signs of a late night.

Treatment of the week

Obagi Skin Peel

 leecolumn1

Acne is a common condition that occurs when hair follicles are blocked by oil or dead skin cells and become inflamed. Adult acne affects 25% of adult men and 50% of adult women at some time in their adult lives. 1/3 of adults affected with facial acne also have acne on their back and body. If you look beyond what the high street has to offer, there are great alternatives to treating acne. I’d recommend getting an Obagi skin-peel as it’s great to treat things such as blemishes, acne and acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles. This is done through a low concentration of Trichloroacetic

Acid is mixed with a special blue base to ensure an even, uniform distribution prior to application. Obagi Blue Skin Peel allows the Doctor to regulate the depth of the peel to remove surface layers of aged and damaged skin.

Chemical peeling does sound scary and brutal but it’s quite the opposite, Trichloroacetic Acid a variant of acetic acid, which is safe to use in practiced hands. The mixture for Obagi is coloured blue, the advantage of this is that as it reacts with your skin and penetrates deeper and becomes a darker blue, which means the practitioner can see exactly how you are responding.

For more information go on (obagi.com) and www.leegarrett.net

Skin Chemists – Bee Venom Facial

 beevemon1

Used by the Royal family, this little oil packs a punch! It helps to soften and calm the skin, as well as reducing lines and wrinkles – these products can help to treat a variety of skin issues. Bee Venom Facial Oil fuses efficacy and potency of the proven results of Bee Venom with the luxury and comfort of an oil to provide skin-tightening, toning and brightening benefits. I’d use this as an overnight treatment as it nourishes the skin after the damage caused from long working hours!

What is Bee Venom?
It sounds scary but it’s not as bad as what you think! Bee Venom contains key ingredients and plumping agents to smooth out the texture and appearance of fine lines. Plant extracts such as watercress, stinging nettles and horsetail help the skin revitalize and allow for sebum regulating. As it’s hailed as a non-surgical facelift and an organic alternative to Botox, it’s no wonder celebrities and Royals have used it! Sounds ridiculously obvious, but do not use if you are allergic to bee stings!

Winter proof your skin

Dry Skin and Eczema

 

The lack of sunlight and the dehydrating central heating as well as the cold weather are not benefiting factors for your skin. I have the secrets that will help prevent bad skin and protect your skin from the bad weather!

 

Dry and Eczema-prone skin can be caused be caused by perfumes, metals or it can be inherited by you family and is related to asthma and hay fever. It can also be caused by the central heating in your home or office can affect sensitive skin, making it dry, itchy, red, swollen, cracked and even weepy.

 

I would say that avoid foods such as dairy foods, eggs, seafood, wheat and nuts, which could flare up and also aim for oily fish that would reduce water loss in your skin so which would help to improve plumpness and moisture. If you are prone to eczema aim for salmon and mackerel help with anti- inflammatory properties, so your skin is less likely to become sore if you are prone to eczema.  Try products such as Dermalex Contact Eczema Cream (£11.99), which is a breakthrough treatment that treats typical contact eczema symptoms such as itching, red spots, dry skin and scaling.

 

 

Dull skin?

 

You cannot moisturize dead skin. Dead skin is dead, dry and flaky and it’s not going to go away with moisturiser. Ashy skin will come back as soon as the moisturiser wears off if you don’t exfoliate. Exfoliation is key to a brighter complexion and you can exfoliate with a flannel (try M&S’s Exfoliating Facial Cloth which helps promote healthy, glowing and radiant skin), or an exfoliating face wash such as Nude’s Miracle Mask (£38), which blends natural AHAs with rice beads to reveal an instantly flawless radiant complexion. You can go deeper with microdermabrasion (go on www.leegarrett.net for more details on prices which revitalizes the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and shallow acne scars, it also stimulates collagen production which helps to thicken and plump out the skin.

The market for skin care brushes has grown considerably – products such as the Clarisonic MIA 2 Daybreak (£125), which is perfect to prepare and protect your skin for the cold seasons. With two speeds, it’s sonic frequency works with your skin’s natural elasticity to thoroughly remove the impurities that come between you and smoother, softer, healthier looking skin and it promises to ‘cleanse 6x better than manual cleansing’, what’s not to love! If you cleanse effectively with these products I’ve mentioned, then your skincare products absorb better!

 

Remember to wear a SPF after exfoliating, as your skin is more sensitive to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. Also never exfoliate in the morning, exfoliate at night to make sure that your skin isn’t so vulnerable to sun exposure.

 

Vitamins and Supplements

Boost your skin from within this season and get ahead of the pack with these great products. The new ‘beauty buzz’ is Fountain’s The Hyaluronic Molecule food supplement (£27.99). This promises to naturally delay the ageing process and extend the life span of cells after drinking it. So instead of using lotions and potions to fight anti-ageing – your glow would come from within!

 

Due to city living, our skin becomes more dehydrated and so this ingredient dramatically improve our elastin and collagen structure as it helps our skin retain water. It also plumps out wrinkles and fine lines when it retains water in our skin, which helps with those who are lacking in this ingredient due to age or environment.

People say that beauty comes from within; I always recommend that you use supplements and the right nutrition to make sure you’re in the best position to look your best! Splash out and try Oskia’s Pure MSM (£29.50) that is a nutritional food supplement for healthier, smoother, younger looking skin and stronger hair and nails. It also supports collagen production, what more do you want from a little pill?

 

Are you on a budget? Try bestseller supplement brand Perfectil (£9.15), it’s advanced formula promises formulas that help boost your skin, hair and nails and is also a multi-vitamin as well!

 

Vitamin C Boost

 

You can get your five a day not only from the fruit bowl but also from your bathroom cabinet! A dose of orange juice is good for keeping colds away, but Vitamin C is a power-packed antioxidant that fights off the signs of aging and is also a known skin brightening agent as well. Skincare brand Murad’s Essential-C Day Moisture cream works to restore the sin to its natural health by preventing damage from UV rays and infusing complexion with powerful antioxidants. Use Murad’s Intensive-C Radiance Peel to reverse environmental damage on the skin to give you a radiant complexion.

 

SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum (£TBC) revolutionary antioxidant combination delivers ‘8 times’ the skin’s natural protection against photo aging – which neutralizes free radicals, helps build collagen and provides unmatched antioxidant protection.

 

Moisturizers

 

It goes without saying that you should wash your face twice a day and remove your make up, it gets rid of the oils and dirt that have built up on your skins surface. These oils and dirt can clog pores and leave you with bogged down skin.

 

Washing your skin reduces the natural oils on the surface and leaves it needing a dose of hydration through a moisturizer. If you skip it after washing your face, your skin is more likely to look older and will expose any visible fine wrinkles. Use Soap and Glory’s Bright Here Bright Now’ (£12) for an instant radiance energy boost balm and helps moisturize, smooth and energize the skin!

 

Water

Remember  to hydrate from the inside and out, excessive alcohol and diuretic hot drinks like tea and coffee in the winter months dehydrates the skin. The best and cheapest, way to prevent dry skin is to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out by drinking lots of water and don’t drink white wine as this will dry your skin out along with your purse. Drinking water will make your skin look healthier, but it will feel smoother and softer.

Essential Skincare for Men

Using a simple soap is about as bad as doing nothing at all, this can leave your skin looking taut and thirty. Remember to use products that help replace the moisture, such as Clinique’s Liquid Face Wash Regular Strength (£15), a little of it goes a long way and use twice a day to keep your skin in it’s best condition (remember to use before shaving).

How to maintain healthy skin

Cut out foods that cause outbreaks such as fries, white bread, pasta, rice, potatoes and sweets. These carbs send our insulin levels soaring, and research has shown that it sets off a series of reactions that leads to breakouts. Go for simple food switch, instead of refined white carbs, go for moderate amounts of complex ones like whole-grain bread, brown rice and whole-wheat pasta.

Always on the go?

I would recommend eye products such as No7 Men Rapid Revival Eye Roll On which helps reduce signs of fatigue fast. It does the job and it helps sooth your eye-bags and dark circles. You will definitely notice a difference!

 1271860685_top-10-anti-aging-products-every-man-should-own_flash

Buy a few, effective products that you will be able to use twice a day and have a routine and stick to it.

Popular treatment for men

I have had a lot of requests for my hair loss treatment which is called Nanopetide Mesotherapy which is a treatment involving small microdroplet injections in the scalp, the treatment contains a mixture of ingredients including vitamins, minerals and peptides  but more importantly it helps to strengthen hair and stimulate hair follicles to encourage growth. So areas which were originally balding or thinning are restored.

Blueberries are fast becoming the hit ingredient for skincare products as well being a great berry to eat to get glowing skin. Blueberries are rich in anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C and Anthocyanins to help fight the formation of free radicals that can damage the skin’s microstructure. It’s a superfood as it has the highest level of antioxidants of any food and can even help reverse the aging process. With the right diet you can virtually stop wrinkles in their tracks. There is a link to blueberries helping tackle acne, even though acne is attributed to hormones. It can neutralize and normalize oil levels in the skin, making it healthier and less likely to accumulate sebum.

  1. Pomegranate

Pomegranate has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. It’s an incredible antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging abilities it’s no doubt that it’s incorporated into skincare, especially anti-aging and sun care products. It can help with a number of skincare issues that can attribute to people with darker skin such as dry skin, age spots, hyperpigmentation, acne and acne scars. For sun protection it can protect against skin cancer because of ellagic acid, a polyphenol antioxidant found in large quantities in pomegranates, which researchers have found inhibits the growth of skin tumors. Extracts of pomegranates help protect the skin from the detrimental effects of UV exposure and slow down the degradation of collagen Also it enables to promote smooth, firm skin by promoting collagen and elastin production.

  1. Pumpkin

There are many benefits to Pumpkins, it’s rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and both the flesh and seeds of the pumpkin provide many health-boosting, disease-fighting nutrients. This is great during the colder month; we need more exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. Pumpkin is an amazing natural skin treatment helping to restore and reserve skin damage from the skin. Make it into a body scrub with brown sugar and cinnamon and you’ll love the results!

 Unknown

  1. Olive oil (not to be used for sunbathing)

Olive oil helps protect your skin from developing skin cancer specifically the deadly form known as melanoma and helps to fight the effects of premature aging. The skin on your lips are very thin, so it leaves them prone to drying out or becoming chapped – apply a light coating of oil to your lips a few times a day to heal the damage and give you smooth lips. Don’t use olive oil if you’re prone to breakouts as it is essentially oil!

 lemon-juice

  1. Lemon juice

The juice of one lemon daily is a great body cleanser as it helps detoxify any toxins in the body and helps to bring a glow in your complexion internally. Lemon has Vitamin C, which is also responsible for building up collagen in our skin, which is necessary to keep the skin firm and young. Also, it’s great to lighten blemishes and any scars or dark spots. Use lemon juice externally on the body only at night. It makes your skin photosensitive (sensitive to light). Exposure to sun would be extremely harmful so use sunscreen diligently after using lemon on your skin.

 Cucumber on White

  1. Cucumber

Fresh raw cucumber are rich in fluids that hydrate the skin, joints and tissues as well as giving you a great boost of Vitamin C, magnesium and ionic potassium. Cucumbers are often used topically to enhance skin function. The natural ascorbic acid and caffeic acid found in cucumber acts to prevent water retention in the skin. This reduces swelling under the eyes and helps the skin heal from sunburn, inflammation, and eczema. Cucumbers are also very effective when eaten and applied topically for removing unwanted cellulite. Cucumbers act to draw out excess fluids and tighten collagen, which has the effect of a natural cellulite reduction. Simply eat some cucumber, juice it, and/or place the cucumber on the regions of water retention.

cantaloupe

  1. Melon

Want skin as firm as a melon? Melon’s anti-ageing secret is carotenoids. These allow vitamin A to be formed which is vital for maintaining cellular health and protecting skin from oxidative stress – this is what accelerates the internal ageing process and manifests itself externally as wrinkles.

Unknown

  1. Avocado

Whether you choose to blend, slice, or mash them, avocados will give you a hefty dose of nutrients your skin loves, including lutein, vitamin E, oleic acid, folate, and monounsaturated fats.Good nutrition is a main component of healthy skin, try and use avocado into your diet to combat dull winter skin and is extremely soothing to sensitive skin. It’s a known bactericide and helps mobilize and increase collagen production in your connective tissue.

Unknown

  1. Broccoli

There are multiple studies that suggest that broccoli could be sunscreen against cancer as it contains sulforaphane, a compound found in broccoli could help block sunburn and prevent the skin disease. The vitamin C in broccoli aids in collagen production and keeps your skin healthy and supple, while vitamin E protects your skin cell membranes and guards against UV radiation damage.
