How To Fight Signs of Ageing

anti ageing tips

Do you want to grow old gracefully? Then follow our top tips on preventing, protecting and fighting against signs of ageing.

Use Your Skincare Products as Directed

While this might sound like common sense, it’s very common practice for some to go overboard with their skincare. Whether it’s excitement at having a new product or impatient at slow results. Active ingredients can do more harm than good when used too much. Applying more than recommended can cause clogged pores, an uneven complexion and many other unwanted effects. So just be patient and follow instructions to get the best results.

Stop Using Products that Sting or Burn Unless Prescribed by a Dermatologist

Irritating the skin makes signs of ageing more noticeable. Some anti-ageing products prescribed by a dermatologist may burn or sting.  When using a prescription anti-ageing product, this can be okay. Just be sure to let your dermatologist know.

Give the Product Time to Work

As mentioned above, while a hydrator can immediately plump up fine lines, most products take some time for results to appear, so be patient.

Do Not Sunbathe

Regardless of whether you get your tan from natural sunlight or a tanning bed, these are both dangerous practices. This is because you are exposing your skin to harmful UV rays that can accelerate ageing, such as an onset of wrinkles, brown spots and a blotchy complexion. What’s more, it can cause skin cancer. As an alternative, if you are absolutely desperate for a tan, why not apply a self-tanning cream to achieve a summer glow, the safe way.

Sun Protection

Speaking of harmful UV rays, you must wear an SPF year round to protect your skin. 80% of UV rays still penetrate a cloudy sky, so you’re still susceptible to sun damage, even it’s not blazing hot. Why not use the Oclipse® Sunscreen + Primer. This multi-tasking beauty works to protect your skin and doubles as a makeup primer!

If you Smoke, Stop Now!

Apart from the countless health complications, smoking also greatly speeds up ageing skin. It causes wrinkles as well as a dull, sallow complexion.

Avoid Repetitive Facial Expressions

When you make a facial expression, such as squinting or frowning you contract the underlying muscles. If you repeatedly contract the same muscles for many years, these lines become permanent. So try to get out of the habit.

Follow ZO’s Recommended Daily Skincare Program

Improving Dull Skin: Layer Your Skincare Correctly

Plenty of people buy lots of new products and use them at random to find that it has made no difference to their skin’s appearance. This is because slapping on skincare products in any random order is probably one of the biggest cardinal sins a beauty lover could make. To get the benefits of each item, there is actually a correct order to layer skincare products.layering skincare products

An easy way of remembering the order of your skincare application is by going from light to heavy. Before any heavy-weight creams, products with the lightest consistency should be applied first. Keep reading below to find out what order you should be layering skincare products, for optimal results

5 Rules To Layering Skincare Products

1. Cleanse:

Your routine should always begin with you washing your face with a cleanser, regardless of whether it is the morning or the evening. In the morning, cleansing helps to remove the dead skin cells your nighttime products will have exfoliated from your skin. While, in the evening this will make sure that any oils, grime, and dirt that may have clogged your pores are washed away.

2. Scrub:

Unless specified by a dermatologist, exfoliators should not be used every day. Exfoliating up to 2-3 times a week can prevent a dull, lacklustre complexion by removing dead skin cells and promoting cell turnover.

3. Tone:

In order to rebalance the skin, a toner will soothe and calm your skin.

4. Stimulate:

Any serums you plan to use should be applied now. If you need to brighten your skin or treat it for sun damage, the Ossential® Brightalive is the revolutionary skin brightener you need. It uses technologically advanced, multi-action complexes to treat hyperpigmentation and sun damage without the use of retinol and hydroquinone.

5. SPF:

Since it has the heaviest formula and its role is to shield the skin from external factors, your SPF should be applied last. Never forget to apply SPF. Regardless of rain or shine, UV rays still penetrate and damage your skin. So you need to stay protected.

Sensitive Skin Misconceptions

Moisturisers are popular products, especially among women. More than 90 percent of the population seek a program that offers moisturisation for a temporary feeling of skin smoothness.  sensitive skin

Moisturisers and Sensitive Skin

Moisturisers can only offer momentary relief for symptoms such as irritation, roughness or itching. The improved surface texture through artificial smoothing or plumping of the skin is fleeting and a superficial improvement. The truth is that these products are ineffective and lack any real benefit.While the occasional use of hydrators when absolutely necessary is acceptable, to depend upon them for hydration and calm skin on a daily basis is wrong. What’s more, repeatedly using moisturisers has a remarkably negative impact on your skin, making it weaker and drier. It is detrimental to skin cellular functions, arresting the skin’s ability to renew itself, leading to the appearance of ‘sensitive skin’ and an acceleration of skin ageing.

sensitive skinCompanies Fuelling The Sensitive Skin Market

Companies within the cosmetic industry are in constant competition to try and outdo one another. They produce a wide variety of moisturisers (plain, light, heavy, with or without anti-ageing claims, etc.) to appeal to everyone. Many consumers assume that any product that causes burning, exfoliation or redness is bad for the skin. While moisturisers are marketed as ‘gentle’, ‘non-irritating’, ‘soothing’, etc., to appeal to all.  Due to this general intolerance to skin discomfort and the belief (and fear) that any form of irritation is bad, many believe they have sensitive skin. This ‘sensitive skin’ trend, has provided a new market for companies to create and sell products that contain stronger moisturisers, which can actually make skin more sensitive.

sensitive skinSensitive Skin in Women

You will notice that the emergence of ‘sensitive skin’ is mainly seen in women. Men and children commonly do not use moisturisers, while women are often taught to use moisturisers from their teenage years. As a result, their skin becomes addicted to this product and brings a whole host of other issues with it.

Overall, skin sensitivity is not really a sensitivity disorder. A sensitivity disorder can be seen with certain cases of genuine skin dryness (not dehydrated skin) or genetic disorders. In fact, ‘sensitive skin’ could more accurately be labelled a skin weakness or intolerance.

Redefining Skin Rejuvenation with Dr Zein Obagi

The Rise in Skin Rejuvenation

The popularity of skin rejuvenation procedures has increased drastically over the past decade. The access patients have via the media and the internet has undeniably had an influence. It has allowed them to become better informed and educated on all the different treatments that can be offered. Furthermore, more practitioners are now offering skin rejuvenation procedures of varying degrees in clinics, salons, spas and even on the High Street.

However, it could be disputed that this wide-spread information has resulted in patients becoming overloaded and overwhelmed with information, leaving them unsure where to start or what treatment to choose for the most effective result. Dr. Zein Obagi explains that in fact, genuine skin rejuvenation cannot work with just one type of procedure or a single topical treatment. Rather, that one should have a collective approach and create a treatment plan.

The Optimal Skin Rejuvenation Plan

Practitioners should design a treatment plan with both short and long-term goals, formulating a topical protocol and overall strategy that is suitable for each patient’s needs. Patients should be made aware of the overall plan and be informed on the reasoning behind each step.

The main objective should be returning the skin to its original state. This can be achieved through the use of topical agents to restore general skin health as well as for the treatment of existing skin conditions (i.e. acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation) when they are present. Procedures such as lasers, energy-based devices, chemical peels, fillers, and/or neurotoxins should be included when topical agents alone cannot completely repair and return the skin to its original state.

Once the skin has been restored, practitioners need to then design a bespoke protocol and treatment plan to ensure the maintenance if the patient’s skin health.

Why Hot Showers Are Bad For The Skin

In those cold winter months, long hot showers may seem tempting but they can actually be quite damaging to the skin. A piping hot shower can dehydrate the skin, stripping it of its natural oils and causing a loss of water and electrolytes. What this means is that your skin will begin to appear scaly, taut and irritated.

What To Do

Instead of hot showers, take it down a notch to lukewarm water and shower only once a day. This way you avoid dehydrating and damaging your skin. Plus keep your showers as short as possible. The longer you’re under the water, the more you’re exposing your skin to harm as the chlorine in tap water can be harsh and damaging to the skin. Try to keep your showers better 5-10 minutes.

Avoid unnecessary moisturisers and go for a cleanser that has moisture boosting ingredients like sodium hyaluronate, panthenol, and allantoin. We recommend the ZO Skin Health Hydrating Cleanser.

Immediately after towel drying, apply ZO Skin Health Body Emulsion Plus, which works to both exfoliate and hydrate the skin. For optimum results apply it while your skin is slightly damp and your pores are still open, allowing for better penetration and absorption.

 

How To Make Skin Healthier and Stronger

Ensuring Results are Consistent to Make Skin Healthier

Most traditional dermatologic treatments address the skin surface and symptoms without addressing cellular function or improving overall skin. This approach may improve the skin’s appearance but the improvement is usually limited and short-lived since the source of the problem is not addressed. At the end of a traditional treatment, the results always vary. Some patients improve more, others less and some not at all. The fault may lie with one or more of the following variables:

At the end of a traditional treatment, the results always vary. Some patients improve more, others less and some not at all. The fault may lie with one or more of the following variables:

  • The physician’s personal approach
  • Patience compliancy
  • Efficacy (penetration, amount of application) of the products
  • Patient skin type (thick, thin, oily, dry)
  • Development of resistance to certain products

In the ZO® approach, most (if not all) of these variables have been eliminated with a standard treatment approach to any skin problem. By using this method, the results of the programs are consistent, reproducible by any physician and achievable by any patient.

How To Make Skin Healthier and Stronger

Eliminating Variables to Make Skin Healthier

Several steps are necessary for identifying and isolating factors responsible for treatment variables using the ZO® Skin Health Restoration Approach. These are the necessary steps:

  • Establishing a Definition of Skin Health

According to ZO® Skin Health Restoration Attributes, “healthy” skin is smooth, firm and tight, even in colour, hydrated, tolerant and free of clinically apparent disease.

  • Introducing an Essential and Practical Skin Classification

To aid in clinical treatment and selection of the proper procedure and depth, skin is classified by thickness, colour, oiliness, laxity and fragility.

  • Introducing and Expanding the Principles of Skin Health Restoration

The ZO® Skin Health restoration program begun from an expansion of Dr. Obagi’s original principles. “Hydration and Calming” replaced “Moisturisation.” The expansion also includes the addition of “GSR™ Getting Skin Ready” and “Stabilisation,” two new and important principles.

Both ZO® Skin Health and ZO® Medical products follow similar principles and steps that make it easy to transition patients from a medical program to a maintenance program, or from basic skincare and prevention to a medical program. However, ZO® Medical utilises specific principles and steps not shared by ZO® Skin Health, as certain topical agents are reserved mainly for the medical line.

Expired Cosmetics: When Should You Bin Your Beauty Products?

cosmetic productsExpired cosmetic products come with a host of problems. It is not just that they begin to break down, become gloopy, change colour or smell funny, it actually also means that they likely harbour bacteria. If you use expired beauty products this could likely result in irritating the skin or worse causing an infection. Consequently, it is very important for you to regularly replace all your cosmetic items.

Unfortunately, beauty products are not legally required to have an expiration date on them. Nonetheless, most products do tell you how long the item can be used for and this is referred to as The Period After Opening or ‘PAO’. The PAO is usually symbolised by a jar with a number followed by the letter ‘M’ which indicates the number of months the product can be used for, once the product has been opened. This does, however, mean that you need to keep track of when you open any new product.

NOTE: It does not matter if you only opened or used the product a few times. Once the seal has been broken the PAO applies and you must throw away and replace the product, even if it has not been entirely used up.

5 Factors That Increase Risk of Sun Damage

Summer is coming and we are ecstatic because when the sun is shining, our spirits just seem to get an instant lift! However, we don’t want your skin to get damaged by the summer sun, so we believe it is important to be informed about the dangers of sun exposure at all ages. Keeping reading below for everything you need to know about sun damage, what it does to your skin and what you can do to protect yourself. sunscreen

Why is sun exposure so bad for the skin?

Sun exposure induces chronic inflammation. This type of inflammation is a destructive process that leads to abnormal cellular function and weakens skin’s immunity, specifically the immunity that helps skin repair itself (reduced Langerhans cells). Sun exposure will weaken skin’s ability to repair damaged DNA. With repeated sun exposure, more damaged DNA-mutated cells appear (pre-cancerous cells that will eventually cause skin cancer). Sun exposure will also disturb many cellular functions and normal skin texture, resulting in:

  • Discoloration due to abnormally functioning melanocytes or their mutations (melanoma or lentigo maligna)
  • Dryness and roughness due to increased transepidermal water loss and the appearance of hard keratin due to the abnormal functioning of keratinocytes
  • Sensitivity and redness, as skin becomes photosensitive due to inflammation induced by sun and disruption of skin-barrier function, initiating a negative body response, creating abnormal blood vessels (telangiectasia) and redness
  • Damaged skin collagen and elastin from repeated sun exposure, which will be apparent later in life as leathery skin texture and accelerated skin aging (earlier and deeper wrinkles and folds)

sunbathe

Sun Exposure Before Age 20

Before the age of 20, the skin is rich with vitality due to proper and active cellular function and repair. The earliest sun-damaging effect seen in this group is the appearance of freckles in light-skinned individuals. This freckling is an indicator of early photosensitivity and susceptibility to severe sun damage later in life (due to unstable and false melanin, known as pheomelanin) that can affect skin texture and lead to a high possibility of skin cancer.

Individuals who tan well may have less chance of skin cancer in the future as tanning represents the presence of strong natural resistance (due to stable, real melanin, also known as eumelanin). However, they will suffer from severe textural damage, resulting in skin with a leathery feel and solar elastosis. It should be clear that no one escapes sun damage if their skin is not protected at an early age. This is true even in individuals who tan well, as tanned skin is essentially skin that is screaming “help.”

Sun Exposure After Age 20

After the age of 20, sun damage is manifested by skin dullness, discoloration, and roughness. In your 30s and 40s, it is characterized by the appearance of actinic keratosis and lentigines. During your 50s, full-blown textural damage and precancerous lesions are evident, as is the appearance of skin cancer in some.

5 Factors That Increase Risk of Sun Damage

hyperpigmentation

  • Skin Type: Fair skin will have more damage than darker skin; thin skin will show earlier sun damage signs compared to thick skin.
  • Skin Diseases: Skin diseases that cause inflammation (i.e. acne, rosacea) can increase susceptibility to sun damage.
  • Autoimmune Diseases and Certain Genetic Disorders: Certain diseases and genetic disorders (i.e. lupus, xeroderma pigmentosum) can increase photosensitivity, accelerate the appearance of sun damage and result in skin cancer.
  • Location: Sun-damaging effects are stronger near water, snow or at high altitudes.
  • Medication: Some blood pressure medication, antidepressants, Isotretinoin and Tetracycline are among the many medications that can induce photosensitivity.

So What Can You Do To Protect Yourself?

In the ZO® sun protection principle, a combination of organic and/or inorganic sunscreens plus fractionated melanin offer protection that is both short-term (with the sunscreens) and longer-term (with the fractionated melanin). By increasing skin tolerance, stimulating skin renewal and using proper sunscreen, the skin will be better protected. The ZO® Triple Approach combines tolerance, renewal and protection for safe and healthier sun exposure. The table below displays what this approach consists of and how each step helps your skin.

Final Notes on Avoiding Sun Damage

A few final pointers on how to avoid sun damage excluding the obvious that you should avoid sun exposure whenever possible are:

• Wear protective clothing
• Observe proper sun exposure guidelines
• Limit exposure to before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m.
• Avoid daily exposure (follow one day of exposure by a day of minimal or no exposure)
• Use sunscreen (organic and inorganic blockers)
