Skin Advice


Aging is a natural part of life and with time, we all get visible lines on our face.

It is natural for our face to lose some of its youthful fullness. We notice our skin becoming thinner and drier. Our genes largely control when these changes occur. However, our environment and lifestyle choices can cause our skin to age prematurely.

Skin Aging FAQs

Sun! UV rays account for 80 per cent of skin ageing. Long-term UV exposure can also lead to pigmentation, reduced skin elasticity and a degradation of skin texture, including yellowing.

Wear SPF 50 to protect your skin all year round!

Stay out of the sun
Wear sunscreen
Drink plenty of water
Don’t squint
Sleep on your back
Don’t Smoke
Eat a healthy and varied diet
Use correct skincare products
Always cleanse your face
Treat your neck as part of your face

While there’s no right or wrong time to begin using anti-aging creams to help maintain the appearance of a youthful, radiant complexion, it may be beneficial to start giving your skin extra nourishment at the first signs of wrinkles.

For many people, this may occur in their 20s or 30s. Treating lines and wrinkles before they become deeply set may help to prolong the smooth appearance of your skin’s texture.

Free radicals are chemically-reactive substances generated by the body, especially when it is exposed to UV radiation. These reactive molecules can cause cell damage and premature aging.

We have enzymes and antioxidants to help soak up some of the damage, which leaves more of our cell undamaged and therefore slows down the ageing effect of free radicals.

Using skincare products with antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, resveratrol, caffeine can help neutralise free radicals and prevent premature aging.

The Skin Lab Approach

The Skin Lab Approach

One of the biggest accelerators of the natural aging process is exposure to environmental elements such as the sun’s UV rays and air pollution. At The Skin Lab we believe a tailored skincare regiment is the best way to prevent premature aging.

We take into account your lifestyle and skin condition and devise a treatment plan that includes the most effective ingredients and skincare technologies for your skin.

The best treatment for aging skin is preventing ultraviolet light damage. Anti-wrinkle skincare products are useless if you are not wearing sunscreen. Sunscreen can slow down the aging process by 24%.  And remember, even on cloudy days, up to 80% of UV rays can pass through the clouds!
