Unfortunately we can’t halt the ageing process, but by keeping your skin healthy and cared for, you have a better chance of looking younger than your age.
Firstly, keep healthy internally with:
- Regular exercise for healthy organs and increased blood flow
- A diet rich in nutritious and healthy anti-aging foods
- Hydrating by drinking plenty of water
- Reducing caffeine and alcohol
Skin is a living organ, like any other in your body, so what goes into it is important.
Externally, there are also many ways you can help prevent the early signs of ageing. Reduce your sun exposure, wear sunscreen and use anti-aging cream to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When selecting an anti ageing cream, look for ingredients such as creatine, hyaluronic acid, magnolia bark extract and Q10 Coenzyme. Scientists have discovered our skin contains this acid when we are younger, but we need to replenish as we age because our ability to produce it naturally decreases over time.
The science behind anti-aging is important to us: it’s why we invest heavily in skin research. For example, in 1933 NIVEA became the first skincare company to register a face care product with UV filters and we have been innovating ever since.
