Great skin is an investment, and the earlier you can start looking after your skin, the better - especially when it comes to the signs of ageing. 

Whether you'd prefer to age gracefully or with a little extra help, there are steps you can take right now to help keep your skin looking its best for years to come. 

Nail your skincare routine 

Get the basics right, and your skin will thank you for it. Cleanse daily, follow that up with a nourishing moisturiser, and always top it off with broad spectrum sunscreen during the day to ensure your skin is healthy, hydrated and protected.  

By taking regular care of your skin, you can avoid some of the premature signs of ageing that can occur when skin is lacking enough moisture or is exposed to the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays.  

Nourish your skin from the inside out 

What you eat and drink can have an effect on skin, too. Nourishing, nutritious foods and a well-balanced diet not only make you feel great, it can help support healthier skin and a more youthful appearance. 

Look for antioxidant-rich foods as they're a natural anti-ageing powerhouse, working to minimise the effects of harmful 'free radicals' that can contribute to the signs of ageing. These include citrus fruits, berries, nuts, and brightly coloured vegetables such as capsicums or red cabbage.

Starting from your 20s, getting appearance medicine as a preventive measure can help stop deeper lines and wrinkles from forming later.  

This is because anti-wrinkle injections work by temporarily 'freezing' the muscles below the skin. This reduces the look of the fine lines that form in the overlying skin, as the targeted muscles are no longer in constant movement.  

If you're considering cosmetic injections, whether as a preventive measure or to target the signs of ageing, we'd recommend coming in for a free consultation at your local Caci clinic to find out more.
