3 Signs Your Skin Is Ageing Faster Than You

The only thing worse than growing up is ageing. The two may sound similar but are poles apart on practical grounds. But how do you know your skin is ageing? We don’t have a birthday to remind us of that. But one can look out for these signs to point out skin ageing before it’s too late.

  1. Expression Lines

These usually are the first to noticeable signs appear. The expression lines include super fine wrinkles at the corner of your eyes, near your mouth and on your forehead.article-2288444-1873986C000005DC-774_306x357

 

  1. Turkey Neck

The skin starts to lose its tautness and becomes less firm resulting in a dull, rough and dry skin. This is visible especially around the neck area.skin-age-mistakes-400x400

 

  1. Spots

Spots or discolored skin is also a clear giveaway. The loss of collagen results in thinner skin and moreover fine and delicate skin.webmd_rf_photo_of_age_spots_on_face

 

Raise your hands if you can relate to the signs mentioned above. It’s okay, I’m typing with my toes right now. What’s not okay is identifying the signals and sitting back.

Say hello to your new BFF, ladies! The L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream. The anti-ageing potion is enriched with organic microencapsulated immortelle essential oil and organic immortelle cells extract; all of which combine and combat skin ageing.

 

Why Should You Use It?

The immortelle oils and extracts help stimulate microcirculation, increase collagen synthesis and protects against free radicals break-up, while smoothening out your skin.

Adding to the natural goodness of immortelle, seven naturally derived ingredients – Marsh Clover, Myrtle, Honey, Bellis Perennis, Hyaluronic Acid, Evening Primrose Oil and Camelina oil – help fill up wrinkles, even out complexion, reshape facial contours and intensely nourish the skin among a number of other benefits.LOCCITANE SKINCARE 3253581271957 VIEW1

Envy tips for healthy hair

healthy hair journey

Who would have thought that hair’s the first thing to start ageing, right from when you’re 12?
And consequent hormonal, nutritional and health changes don’t really slow down the process either. Invest time and energy into your hair – right from the early days – and you’ll have little to worry about.

We give you some tips for a healthy hair journey…

  • Moisturised hair equals healthy hair. So, don’t overdo the styling, heating or drying as it dehydrates your locks.
  • Watch what you eat: A protein-rich diet is essential for strong, healthy hair. Don’t worry though, it’s not like you need to avoid carbohydrates and fats. The key is to eat in moderation.
  • Spend two minutes a day kneading the scalp. It increases circulation to boost the health and thickness of your hair.
  • Get yourself a head massage every other week. It’ll do wonders to maintain hair health and also help relax your mind.
