Spring is a great time of the year: the vibe is bustling, the days are longer and you don’t need to lug extra layers as soon as you step foot outside. But while the extra sunshine brings up the mood tenfold, it also means stronger UV rays, which aren’t exactly the best thing when it comes to your skin.
UV light is, pretty much, the biggest environmental factor that leads to premature ageing – it can weaken the collagen in skin and affect the very foundation of your skin, which in effect can lead to dark spots by increasing production of pigment, more visible pores, as well as redness and broken capillaries by causing blood vessels to grow.
Because after all, there’s only one outfit you wear every day. No, not your pyjamas… we’re talking about your skin.
So, where do I start?
The skincare market is an overwhelming one: from budget supermarket buys to luxury options whose prices will make your eyes water, it really is a minefield out there.
Coming in hot to help solve that problem, is men’s health platform Mosh – a health website specifically tailored to men’s health needs like skin, sex and hair loss. They have a selection of affordable, easy and tailored options to get you on the right track including…
Prescription skincare for anti-ageing
When it comes to Mosh’s prescription skincare for anti-ageing, you don’t even have to visit the doctor’s office. All you have to do is jump on their website, fill out a simple quiz and a doctor will get in touch with you via text, call or video chat to confirm the treatment plan is right for you. Then a personalised skincare kit will be delivered to your doorstep.
The products in their range use ingredients like vitamin A (great for wrinkles), retinoid (clears blocked pores) and niacinamide (improves skin elasticity) so you know you’ve got a good thing coming.
Mosh also has a non-prescription range that will make finding the ultimate skincare trio as easy as going to this link. These three products – a Fresh Cleanser, Anti-Ageing Moisturiser and Dark Circle Eliminator – target dark circles, impurities and ageing, and will arrive at your door every 3-months via their subscription service.
A combination of topical/oral solutions
If you do choose to jump in and do the free consultation, the Aussie doctors that work with Mosh could prescribe you with a combination of treatments depending on your skin and what you’re looking to treat. Your bespoke treatment plan could include one or a combo of the following: over-the counter cream/gel/ointment, prescription cream/gel/ointment or topical/oral antibiotics.Look, younger- and healthier-looking skin is really about only two things: Keep your routine simple and always use products with scientifically proven ingredients.
