Beat Premature Ageing With These 7 Skincare Products

Beat the cold.

Combined with winter fatigue, exposure to freezing temperatures can add years to a man. If you’re a regular on the slopes, it’s time to think beyond the customary factor 50 to stem the downhill effects of premature ageing.

In the meantime, put ageing on ice with these cool techniques from facialist Sarah Chapman:

1.Frozen Assets: When blood vessels get cold, they constrict. Reduce redness by rolling a cling-wrapped ice cube over your face.

2. Chill Factor: Treat blotchy skin by storing your moisturiser in the fridge: use it to soothe razor burn or whenever you’re looking a bit puffy.

3. Water Works: After cleansing, splash on iced water. The temperature shift will help to tighten skin
and drain fluid for a face-sculpting effect.

Course Correction

Arid air sucks moisture out of your face and causes deep wrinkles. Counter this with collagen boosters, which smooth out your wrinkles, and tripeptides that relax your facial muscles,
so your deepest crevasses look less cavernous.

Nightime Hydrator

Retinol, is one of the most powerful skincare ingredients for fighting the signs of ageing. It helps accelerate skin cell renewal and stimulate collagen production to help reverse the appearance of lines and wrinkles, along with pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Made For Many’s Rentinol and Night Serum combines retinol with a bunch of anti-ageing Australian native organic botanical super ingredients for a super concentrated formula.


Sight for Sore Eyes

The skin around your eyes can crack up in the cold. This cream deploys omega fatty acids to strengthen cell membranes, while antioxidant copper tripeptide helps to undo any damage. Its rapidly absorbed amino acids keep the weather out, but moisture locked in.
