There are many things that change for the better as we age. However, ageing also has some downsides to it such as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As we age, our skin becomes thinner and loses elasticity. Coupled with changes in hormones, gravity and other factors, it can lead to the appearance of early signs of ageing. While ageing is a natural process and we cannot control it, there are certain steps we can take to reduce it.
What is the secret of younger-looking skin?
Ageing is primarily caused by two factors – extrinsic and intrinsic. Intrinsic factors are inevitable and are genetically determined. Extrinsic factors, on the other hand, include our lifestyle and environmental factors such as diet and exposure to the sun. While we cannot control intrinsic factors, there are certain steps we can take to reduce and prevent ageing caused by extrinsic factors.
1. Eat a healthy, balanced diet
A diet rich in leafy green vegetables, fresh fruits, proteins and carbohydrates not only keeps your body healthy but supports your skin health with vital minerals and vitamins.
2. Keep yourself hydrated
Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day to keep your body hydrated and replenish the skin tissues. This in turn keeps your skin soft and plump.
3. Reduce your exposure to the sun
The ultraviolet rays from the sun can penetrate your skin and damage elastic fibres which keep the skin firm. This can lead to the formation of wrinkles and make your skin sag. Always apply a mineral-based sunscreen 15 minutes before you step out.
4. Cleanse your face with a natural face wash
Throughout the day, your skin gets exposed to many elements such as makeup, pollution, dust and dirt. These can accumulate on the skin’s surface and clog pores which can lead to acne, blackheads and more. It’s best to choose a natural cleanser that is suitable for your skin type and use it twice a day to cleanse your skin and remove impurities.
5. Always moisturise your skin
Our skin loses its ability to retain moisture as we age which makes it prone to dryness. By moisturizing your skin daily, you can ensure that your skin remains hydrated, maintains firmness and stays healthy.
6. Reduce intake of foods high in salt and sugar
Sugar causes inflammation and may also damage collagen and elastin fibres which can lead to wrinkles and skin sagging. Too much salt, on the other hand, can dehydrate your skin and make your skin more prone to wrinkles.
7. Avoid smoking and drinking excessive alcohol
Alcohol is known to dehydrate the skin while smoking speeds up ageing by reducing oxygen flow and causing blood vessels to narrow. These can make signs of ageing such as crow’s feet more prominent.
8. Avoid repetitive facial expressions
Whether you frown, laugh or smile, when you make a facial expression you contract the underlying muscles. When the same set of muscles is repeatedly contracted over the years, these lines become permanent.
What is the best natural anti ageing skincare?
It’s important to use the right anti ageing skincare products in your late 20s to reduce signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles and restore skin firmness and improve uneven skin tone. Throughout the day, our skin gets exposed to elements such as the harsh rays from the sun, dust, dirt and pollution which can cause problems for our skin. These elements can build up on our skin, clog pores and leave it dehydrated.
And that’s why it’s important to have a facial anti ageing routine that protects and nourishes your skin from morning to night.

What is the best anti ageing cream that really works?
When it comes to choosing anti ageing creams that really work, it’s important to look for the right ingredients. While Retinol has always been touted as the go-to ingredient for anti ageing skincare products, it has some drawbacks. Retinol is known to cause redness, flakiness and sensitivity. Retinol also makes skin more sensitive to UV light and should be used at night. Products with Retinol are also not safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Instead, choose anti ageing creams with Bakuchiol – a natural alternative to Retinol that works just like it without the side effects.
Derived from the Babchi plant, Bakuchiol reduces early signs of ageing such as fine lines and facial wrinkles, improves skin elasticity and promotes collagen production. It is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin and can be used throughout the day.
The Moms Co.’s Natural Age Control Night Cream is the best night cream to give your skin the benefits of Bakuchiol and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps replenish moisture to your skin, restore skin elasticity and firmness with the safest ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide. The Natural Age Control Night Cream is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin and is Australia-certified toxin-free. It is also dermatologically-tested and PETA-certified cruelty-free.
