Get that whole-body anti-ageing regime.
Being ageing experts, we focus on the face. Our anti-wrinkle cream is our most popular product, yet, it’s not just our faces that are prone to wrinkles. Other parts of our body are affected, in different ways.
Our hands get wrinkles. Legs get cellulite and dimples. And, arms can sag. So, take care of your face first, with an anti-wrinkle cream (like Age IQ), then follow healthy lifestyle habits to care for your entire body.
So, how can you minimise the look of wrinkles?
Use an anti-wrinkle cream on your body.
Don’t forget about your neck, hands, arms, stomach and legs. Our Firming Contour Cream is the body version of our anti-wrinkle cream for your face, Age IQ. It smooths and tones your bod and improves cellulite and dimpled skin, all while stimulating circulation.
Why is it an anti-wrinkle cream? It’s got collagen-boosting powers, thanks to peptide matrix (a blend of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycan that restore firmness). This body anti-wrinkle cream has shea and cocoa butters, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, white willow bark, caffeine and green tea in it. Oh, and one of the most amazing anti-wrinkle cream ingredients, sodium hyaluronate.
Make morning walks a habit.
Once you’ve washed your face and applied your anti-wrinkle cream, get your blood pumping with a morning walk. Given that our bone mass peaks at 30, it’s extremely important, after this, to invest in regular weight-bearing activities like walking. It helps increase bone density and, of course, is great for your skin. Why not walk to your favourite café for that first coffee?
Eat a healthy breakfast.
Okay, so you’ve applied your anti-wrinkle cream and gone out for a 30-minute walk. Now, it’s time to nourish your body with a delicious, antioxidant-rich breakfast. Diet is a powerful weapon against ageing (especially when coupled with your anti-wrinkle cream regime).
Avoid the sugary cereals, white flour and process foods. This causes inflammation – something that anti-wrinkle creams help to fight. So, what’s good to eat? Foods high in healthy fats like salmon, avocado and eggs. Fresh fruit is always good, too.
Minimise all unnecessary stress.
You’ve had a lovely morning and you’re ready to start your work day. With your anti-wrinkle cream doing its job on your skin (and you’ve made the right exercise and diet choices), you’re feeling energised… until you’re stuck in traffic.
Don’t let commuting chaos send your body into a state of stress. The heightened cortisol level isn’t good for your skin. A good anti-wrinkle cream will help mitigate environmental stressors, but not necessarily when you’re constantly in a fight or flight state. Know what triggers your stress (and how to manage it).
Take your vitamins.
Even if you’re eating well, stress and exposure to toxins can deplete your energy. Make sure you’re getting enough vitamins and minerals, through your diet, as well as your anti-wrinkle cream.
Look for vitamin A, C, E, D, K, B3 and B5.
