If you see time leaving marks on your skin, don’t worry. Learning how to embrace those marks is vital to ageing gracefully. Ageing is a natural process, and as time goes by, our skin will go through various changes. When our skin starts to regenerate more slowly, it loses radiance, elasticity, and produces less collagen. These then appear in the form of dullness, dehydration lines, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and loss of firmness.
While ageing gracefully, there’s no harm in keeping these marks in check either. With the help of the right skincare products as well as a healthy lifestyle, you can maintain a youthful complexion and look great at any age.
1) When Is The Best Age To Start An Anti-Ageing Skincare Routine?
Experts agree that our skin starts to age as early as 20 years old. That’s because the cell regeneration cycle and the production of collagen and elastin in our skin start to slow down at that point. An unhealthy lifestyle, lack of sleep, increased stress, and overexposure to the sun may even speed up the ageing process. It is recommended to start the road to prevention as early as you can, and ideally between 20 to 25 years old. Nutox Renewing Treatment is the perfect range to start with as it keeps your skin deeply hydrated and boosts youthful radiance.
2) Do I Need To Change My Anti-Ageing Skincare From Time To Time?
Not necessarily. If your skincare is working just fine and giving you the results you’re looking for, there is no reason to. That is why the Nutox Youth Restoring range and its holy grail serum have been and remain loved by many Malaysian women throughout the years. It’s easy to see why too – the range is formulated with powerful ingredients like B’Nest Collagen (a potent ingredient to protect our skin against visible signs of ageing) and Actigenic+ (a special technology that promotes skin’s collagen production and cell regeneration).
3) Must I Use The Whole Range From The Same Brand?
It’s advisable to use the full range if you want to maximise the results. However, you can also consider some hybrid combos. For example, if the Nutox Youth Restoring Advanced Serum Concentrate suits you but a moisturiser from the same range is too heavy for you, you may consider switching to a different moisturiser from the same brand, even if it’s from a different range.
4) If I Want To Reduce Signs Of Ageing, How Often Should I Use The Facial Mask?
There are many types of masks, with the most common ones being sheet masks and sleeping masks. Let’s start with sheet masks. These can be used 2-3 times a week, and are best applied after your serum for 15 to 20 minutes. Remember to not leave your sheet mask on for too long, as it will dry up your skin.
As for sleeping masks, these can be used daily as the last step of your night-time regime. They tend to have a more intensive moisturising effect, with strong anti-ageing benefits. For even better results, be sure to apply a serum before your sleeping mask too. Apply and massage gently onto the entire face and neck. If you have other skin concerns, Nutox has a variety of masks that might just be the answer.
5) I Have Always Prioritised The Needs Of My Sensitive Skin Over Ageing Concerns. Is There Something I Can Use To Take Care Of Both?
Of course! All skin matures, and sensitive skin is no exception, with women of this skin type still being prone to fine lines, dullness, wrinkles, loss of firmness, and hyperpigmentation. It may seem extra tough to pick the right products, but the first – and easiest – thing to do is to read the labels before purchasing. The Nutox Youth Restoring range for sensitive skin has all the labels and criteria that someone with sensitive, ageing skin could ask for. Why? It contains no paraben, no colourant, no fragrance, no mineral oil, and no alcohol. Its formula is hypoallergenic and dermatologist-approved, with the added age-defying ingredients of Actigenic+ and bird’s nest extract.
6) I’ve Been Using Anti-Ageing Skincare Products And Practicing A Healthy Lifestyle, So Why Am I Not Seeing Results?
The products you’re using may not suit your skin’s needs or type. Over time, our skin concerns and type may change due to environmental factors, stress, age, and hormones. For instance, one could have oily skin in their youth and dry skin in their later years. Skip the time-consuming trial and error, and go straight to the easy Skincare Finder from Nutox to get recommendations that suit your skin in its current condition.
7) Is It A Must To Apply Sunscreen To Defy Signs Of Ageing?
Yes. The sun plays a bigger role than most of us realise and overexposure to harmful UV rays leads to premature ageing. When UV rays penetrate our skin, they will damage the elastic fibres within and cause wrinkles. They could also induce the production of melanin and cause dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Luckily, these can all be countered with sunscreen. Go for a broader spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. If you’re pressed for time, you can also use an anti-ageing moisturiser with SPF like the Nutox Youth Restoring Moisture Emulsion SPF25 PA++ (Morning).
