The best way to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles is to stop them coming in the first place. Knowing how to prevent aging skin is an effective tool in delaying the damage that leads to visible signs of aging.
A targeted skincare regime focused on preventative measures, backed by science, can help slow down the signs of early aging and result in plumped, brighter, more youthful-looking skin.
Here are the three top ways to prevent or delay the signs of aging.
1. Defend your skin against free radical damage
Antioxidants are the superheroes of skincare, shielding skin from free radical attacks and preventing damage to the delicate skin barrier.
What is skin damage? Environmental aggressors such as pollution, UV exposure and stress weaken the skin, making it more susceptible to damage that shows up in the form of lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and a dull complexion.
Worship Skin Defence Antioxidant Serum fortifies skin against this oxidative stress, making it better able to fend off attacks and keeping it looking its youthful best. The water-based serum is enhanced with a nutrient-dense superfruit complex from boysenberries, blackcurrants, and kiwifruit, along with the antioxidant extract Vinanza® Grape from grape seeds, which work together to absorb and neutralize free radical damage. In fact, Worship has been scientifically shown to inhibit oxidative stress in-vitro by up to 90%*.
Glow Ritual Vitamin C Serum also offers a powerful dose of antioxidants – this time in the form of Vitamin C – to protect, hydrate, and strengthen your skin. The gel serum’s key ingredient is Kakadu plum, nature’s highest source of Vitamin C (with up to 100x the Vitamin C of oranges), which helps neutralise skin damage caused by free radical attacks. Glow Ritual has been scientifically shown to inhibit oxidative stress in-vitro by up to 33%**.
Vitamin C also brightens skin tone and boosts collagen production, resulting in a firmer, more luminous complexion.
2. Prevent pigmentation
It’s natural for your skin to contain melanin – the pigment responsible for skin tone, eye colour, and hair colour – but too much leads to pigmentation. Hormones, pregnancy, inflammation, and exposure to UV light can all be causes of premature aging, as they increase the production of melanin in your skin, which shows up as pigmentation and an uneven skin tone.
The new glow-enhancing moisturiser, Diem Vitamin C Pigment-Correcting Water Cream, is powered by a high-performance peptide, Melanostatine™ 5, that’s been scientifically shown to help target pigmentation. It acts as a melanin inhibitor, resulting in brighter, smoother skin with less discolouration.
Diem’s natural Vitamin C teams with hyaluronic acid and bakuchiol – a natural alternative to Vitamin A – to deliver a plumped, more-youthful appearance with exceptional skin clarity.
3. Keep skin hydrated and support optimum collagen levels
The production of collagen, which gives skin its strength and elasticity, decreases as we age, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines. Supporting the skin’s natural collagen levels can mean more supple skin and fewer visible signs of aging.
That’s where Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream comes in. It’s high in nutrient-rich avocado oil that delivers an abundance of antioxidants to skin, plumping lines and boosting collagen production.
Skin is further enriched by a dose of manuka honey, which draws moisture to the skin, and Vinanza® Grape, which helps to neutralise the effects of free radical damage that can lead to premature aging. Skin is plumped, firmed, nourished, and more youthful-looking.
The scientific results speak for themselves: Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream has been scientifically shown to help stimulate Type I collagen production by up to 92%†.
