Counteract the loss of elasticity and hyperpigmentation with a skin kit that includes a hydrating cleanser. You can use it twice a day, followed by a treatment serum. Use a sunscreen with an SPF above 30, and facial oils at night. Pamper yourself with a home spa, and use a firming mask.

1. Treat

Find a facial oil that combines skin-friendly properties such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin boosters that stimulate the cells to produce its own. A glow-giving formula that provides an extra portion of care for enhanced elasticity, leaving the skin hydrated and with a firm, smooth appearance is preferable.

2. Cleanse

Prioritise a mild face wash that gently removes makeup, excess oil and other impurities without stripping the natural oils away. This also helps to maintain the natural acid balance of your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed, with a more radiant appearance.

3. Protect

Try a broad-spectrum sunscreen for daily use that provides effective and immediate UVA/UVB protection against sunburn, which results in premature ageing.

Beauty editor’s tip:

Be careful not to pull the thin, delicate skin on your neck when applying a cream. Use upward-sweeping motions and be gentle.

4. Moisturise

Ingredients like mineralising water and hyaluronic acid can help strengthen and revitalises the skin, delivering a daily boost of hydration that protects against damage caused by pollution, stress and fatigue. This kind of moisturise will help your skin recover its natural glow.

5. Mask

Try a convenient peel-off sheet face mask to use at least once or twice a week, to boost the skin’s hydration and natural plumping power. They are typically soaked with concentrated beneficial ingredients to improve your skin.
