If you’re interesting in fighting the signs of ageing there are lots of things you can do. You will need to make some small lifestyle changes to see the results but we’re sure you’ll think it’s well worth the effort. Read our list to get top tips on how to stay looking beautiful as you get older: 1)    Quit smoking Smoking will accelerate the rate at which your skin ages, meaning you will experience wrinkles and dull skin before your non-smoking friends. If you quit while you’re ahead you may be able to remove any lasting damage caused to your skin and overall health. 2)    Wear sun cream everyday Everyone knows that prolonged exposure to the sun can cause skin cancer, but it will also age your skin and give it a leathery look. You can apply one of our moisturisers with in-built sun protection factor (SPF) every day to help combat the effects of UV rays which are present even on cloudy days. 3)    Eat more fruit and veg Getting your five a day is incredibly important as it will give your body all of the vitamins and nutrients that it needs to stay healthy and efficient - and you’ll notice an improvement in your skin almost immediately too! 4)    Get some exercise You should get at least half an hour of exercise at least once a day, which will help to keep your skin cells oxygenated, as well as your body in shape. 5)    Drink more water Water will help to hydrate your skin, which will reduce the signs of aging. Drink around six 200ml glasses of water a day if you can. 6)    Stay calm Stress is one of the main causes for early signs of ageing, so try to figure out what it is that is creating your stress and eliminate it from your lifestyle. 7)    Enjoy a cup of green tea Green tea is packed with antioxidants and can really help to improve the youthfulness of your skin and keep your digestive system healthy. 8)    Use good skin care Make sure you use good quality skin products in your daily regime. We have a special line of anti-ageing skin care products that have been designed to boost the production of collagen, which is key to plumped up, youthful looking skin. 9)    Consider a surgical procedure If you’re serious about talking anti-ageing there are a number of procedures you can have done, such as a face lift or eye bag removal. You can also have Botox, dermal fillers or a skin peel, all of which are non-invasive. Check out our website for more information. 10)     Invest in some good makeup When it comes down to it, makeup can often be a woman’s best friend. You don’t have to wear a lot of it to give you a youthful appearance, just make sure you buy high quality, mineral-based products as they will work better and be kinder to skin.
