Struggling With Ageing Skin? Try This Simple, Doctor-Approved Routine

Anti Aeging Skin Treatment Singapore

Everyone experiences the process of aging and the skin is often the first place to show signs of this. Fortunately, a good skincare routine can keep your skin looking younger for longer.

Contrary to what most people believe, your skincare routine does not need to include expensive products with fancy ingredient names you cannot pronounce. Focus on what matters – which in this case, is anti-ageing.

To help you with this, our doctors share tips for improving or refining your skincare routine. We’ll also share about skin booster treatments in Singapore that can complement your skincare

Use a Gentle Ceanser

Cleansing your skin is the first step in any skincare routine. Your skin thins and becomes more delicate as you age, and is hence more prone to irritation and damage.

Many traditional cleansers can be harsh and abrasive, which can damage the skin’s natural barrier and cause irritation. Gentle cleansers, on the other hand, are more effective at preserving the skin’s natural moisture, preventing dryness and dehydration.

It is best to choose a gentle cleanser that removes impurities without stripping the skin’s natural oils, and is free of harsh ingredients like sulfates, parabens, and fragrances.

Use a Chemical or Physical Exfoliant

Exfoliation is a crucial step in any skincare routine, especially for ageing skin. As we age, our skin’s natural exfoliation process slows down, leading to a buildup of dead skin cells on the surface. This can make the skin look dull and increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

To combat this, we recommend that you use a chemical exfoliant such as alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) or beta-hydroxy acids (BHA), once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells.

Physical exfoliators typically contain microbeads that are more abrasive and can scratch your skin. They are not recommended for sensitive, ageing skin because they increase the risk of scarring and bacterial infection.

Use Anti Aging Serums

Anti-aging serums are a must-have in any skincare routine for ageing skin. These serums contain active ingredients that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Look for serums that contain these ingredients to improve the overall appearance of your skin:

Retinol

Retinol is one of the most popular ingredients in anti-aging serums – and for good reason. For one, it is an effective multi-tasker made from vitamin A and can penetrate the outer layer of your skin to regulate skin turnover and promote collagen and elastin production.

This results in shedding excess dead skin, preventing comedone formation, improving skin elasticity, and making the skin appear brighter. This is why retinols are a popular choice in anti-ageing products.

When using a retinol serum, it’s crucial to start with a low concentration and gradually increase usage to avoid any adverse effects. Retinol can cause sensitivity and irritation in some individuals.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from free radical damage.

Free radicals degrade collagen in your skin, causing wrinkles, sagging skin, pigmentation and sun spots. Vitamin C stops the free radicals before they can harm your skin. Using a vitamin C serum can thus slow down skin damage and preserve the youthfulness of our skin.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a staple in many skincare products because of its amazing ability to retain moisture.

Hydrating your skin with hyaluronic acid puts it in an optimal condition for collagen production, which tightens the skin over time and reduces wrinkles.

Use a Moisturiser

Our skin becomes drier, loses elasticity, and is more prone to wrinkles and sagging. This means that our skin loses hydration more easily. It is important to use a moisturiser that not only hydrates the skin, but also restore its protective barrier which prevents moisture loss.

Some of the best ingredients to look for in a moisturiser are ceramides, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients can help plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Apply Sunscreen

Always apply sunscreen as the last step in your skincare routine. Ultraviolet exposure may account for up to 80% of visible signs of aging in the skin including wrinkles, and pigmentation.

Therefore, it is crucial to wear sunscreen, especially in sunny Singapore. Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30 that will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.

Skin Booster Treatment

A good skincare routine can reduce the signs of aging, but not completely eliminate them. For clients who have moderate to severe wrinkling, we recommend a skin booster treatment.

A skin booster treatment is a non-surgical method for reducing wrinkles, restoring your skin’s hydration levels and improving the size of your pores. It involves injecting hyaluronic acid fillers with an injector gun or the manual injection method.

The microinjections are delivered to your skin at specific areas of your face, based on the recommendations by your doctor for optimal results. A skin booster treatment in Singapore can also treat the fine lines on your hands and decolletage.

Our clients in Singapore, especially if they are busy, opt for a skin booster treatment because of its minimal downtime of 2-3 days.

The first three treatments should be performed two to four weeks apart.Then, it is recommended that you go for a maintenance treatment every six months.

Ageing Skin Deserves Good Skincare Too

Ageing skin requires extra care and attention to maintain its health. By following a consistent skincare routine, you can reduce the signs of ageing and keep your skin looking radiant and youthful.

If your deep wrinkles and lines are still noticeable after a change in your skincare routine, you might want to consider going for a skin booster treatment in Singapore.
