Skin care routines for ageing and problem skin

As you age, your skin's collagen and elastin fibres degrade, plus the quality of your body's hyaluronic acid is reduced. As a result your skin becomes less elastic, rougher and often dryer.

Some of the contributing factors cannot be changed such as your individual genetic code and biological clock, but changes to lifestyle habits and skin care routines can make a huge difference to skin problems.
 
Using our skin analysis technology we can show you the condition of your skin and then recommend appropriate skin care products, skin treatments and supplements to reduce the signs of ageing, or problem skin, and help you look your best.

ACE skin care

The quality of skin care products that you use makes a huge difference. To reduce your signs of ageing you should be using skin care products that contain Vitamin A, C and E. When used correctly Vitamin A helps build collagen to smooth out wrinkles and along with Vitamin C reduces skin pigmentation. 
 
Combine vitamin skin care with pure mineral makeup, such as Jane Iredale, which allows the skin to breath and function normally, whilst still protecting the skin from UV light and air born pollutants.

Always use sun protection

Sun damage is the single greatest cause of ageing resulting in freckles, sun spots, pigmentation, wrinkles and at worst leading to skin cancer.
 
This doesn't mean you can't have fun in the sun - looking bronzed is a great way to look healthy, but always wear sun protection and avoid excessive periods of strong sun exposure.
 
In scotland during the autumn and winter months we recommend you use a minimum SPF 15 and during the spring and summer months at least SPF 30. When going on holiday to hot countries you should use Heliocare SPF 50.  
 
Using sunless tanners is a great way to top up that sun kissed look, but never use sun tanning machines as they accelerate skin damage and put you at risk of skin cancer.
