Feeling age creeping up to you?
If you’re in your 20s or 30s and to prevent wrinkles, now is the time to get serious. It’s definitely easier (and cheaper) to prevent wrinkles than to worry about getting rid of them.
These are anti aging products you should incorporate in your skin care regime as soon as possible:
Cannot stress more on the importance of sun protection for anti-aging. Did you know, the number one cause of premature aging is harmful UV rays from the sun? The sun is actually your skin’s worst enemy.
Sunscreen protects your skin against harmful rays that causes wrinkles, pigmentation, loss of elasticity, and rough texture. Apply sunscreen generously to your face, neck and exposed chest everyday even if you’re working indoors. As long as there are windows, you need the protection.
Is your morning routine taking too long? Maybe you’d prefer a 2-in-1? Medik8’s Hydr8 Day 360 Ultra is a day moisturiser together with broad spectrum sun protection (i.e. protects you from both UVA and UVB). And that’s not all, this also protects your skin from glycation – the second largest cause of skin aging!
Exfoliation is good for your skin. But as with anything else, it’s possible to overdo it. When that happens, you’ll end up with inflamed and dry skin instead.
The optimal frequency depends on both your skin type (whether it is oily or dry) and age. However, you shouldn’t scrub or use a cleansing brush more than 3-4 times a week. And for scrub, do go for ones with rounded beads as uneven ones could cause micro tearing in your skin.

Antioxidant serums could be either vitamin C or vitamin A (retinol). These can help you fade skin discolouration, promote collagen production, reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, etc. The most important thing to look for when getting your antioxidant serums though, is stability.
Make sure that the products you’re getting is stabilised (i.e. not oxidised and broken down by the time you use them)!

Hydration with Hyaluronic Acid
You might think that the richer the moisturiser is, the better it is for preventing fine lines and wrinkles, however that’s not true (partially anyway). Rich moisturisers are indeed good for you if your skin is very dry.
However, if your skin is normal, combination. acne-prone or oily, then you’re better off with a lighter moisturiser. Especially with our hot and humid weather here. Moisturiser that are too rich might end up clogging your pores and causing blackheads, breakouts.
Hyaluronic acid can provide your skin with excellent moisture and hydration. And at the same time, still stay lightweight and is not sticky at all! This miracle ingredient prevents your skin from losing moisture and creates a smooth, youthful appearance.
One hyaluronic product you should consider is Medik8 Hydr8 B5. It’s a hydration serum with Hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 (additional healing properties). And because it’s water based (won’t clog your pores), you can apply it with ease, even when you’re having breakout.
Medik8 products are designed with green chemistry techniques that is kind to your skin and to the environment. At the same time, they contain the active ingredients in innovative delivery methods that have been scientifically proven to deliver you results!
