When Should I Start Using Age Defence?

A fact of life is that over time, our skin won’t be as bouncy and as efficiently hydrated as it was on your 21st birthday. Sorry pal. Look at the good news though, you are living! Taking action early can prevent your skin from looking drab and dull too early. Do remember though, you can’t stop your skin from ageing completely. As a rule of thumb, don’t believe any product that claims to be a wrinkle remover for men or  good anti wrinkle cream for men.

Instead you should be looking out for words like age defence cream.

In Your 20s

As a rule of thumb, your collagen levels start to drop in your mid-twenties (this varies according to genetics and lifestyle of course). So, it wouldn’t go a miss to start protecting your skin from environmental aggressors now.
FYI collagen is the main protein found in skin and other connective tissues. As we age, it depletes which is manifested through sagging skin and wrinkles.

One of your skin’s number one enemies is pollution. Pollution can damage collagen which could then cause premature skin ageing. Make sure you use a face wash every night to remove pollutants and a good moisturiser with antioxidants.  Antioxidants protect your skin from free radical damage caused by pollution.

Our Age Defence Moisturiser is the best face cream for men who are concerned about free radical damage as it contains a potent blend of antioxidants like rosemary, echinacea and vitamin E.

In Your 30s

You might have already experienced a couple of fine lines around the eyes and laugh lines when you hit your 30s. To help perfect signs of skin ageing, you need to up the skincare ante.

You should already be using the best face cream for men (the Age Defence Moisturiser ahem) but what about your body too. 

Smart looking man

Your hands give away your age even if your face is as youthful as a vampire’s. Keep them hydrated with Original Hand Cream and introduce yourself to our Original Body Lotion too. It contains aloe vera, green tea and camelina oil.

SPF – Sun Protection Factor

We may not seem to get much over here, but the sun above us has a huge effect on the way our skin ages – even if you can’t feel the rays yourself

Now that you have the best cream for men, best body products and a symphony of antioxidants in your grooming arsenal, we just have one more thing to talk to you about and that’s SPF.

Broad spectrum sunscreens with an SPF15 or higher block out 93% of UVB rays and filter out UVA rays. These can contribute to skin ageing so, if you block out the rays, you are more likely to protect your skin from premature skin ageing. Use an SPF daily.

Protective Moisturiser contains a broad spectrum SPF. Use this in the morning and our Age Defence Moisturiser at night for your ultimate age defending armour.
