Get The Best Treatments For Aging Skin at Blakes Beauty Salon in Canterbury

As we get older, it’s natural for our skin to change. In fact our skin starts to age as soon as we are born!  Over time, the skin experiences a slowing of the natural processes which help to keep it’s youthful qualities such as firmness, radiance and tautness.   Visible signs of aging creep in such as fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.  These are actually a result of our skin’s natural defense mechanisms as well as slower skin cell renewal and recovery as we get older.

What To Expect As Our Skin Gets Older & The Best Treatments

In Your 20s

As early as our 20s, unhealthy lifestyle habits, environmental damage and UV exposure begin to take their toll on our skin, damaging it’s structural integrity.  Faced with an onslaught of free radicals, the skin’s natural ability to repair and renew itself slowly starts to decline, resulting in reduced radiance.

How to look after your skin in your 20s

It’s vitally important to wear a proper SPF everyday, even when it isn’t sunny.   Find out why here and speak to your Blakes skin therapist about our recommended Dermalogica SPF products.    You should also get into a regular skin care routine, choosing the right products for your skin type.  

Speak to us about the Dermalogica Clear Start range if you are troubled by breakouts, blackheads or excess oil.

In Your 30s

During our 30s the collagen and and elastin in our skin start to degrade.  These are what keep our skin firm and elastic (not slack), which is why we can start to see visible wrinkles.  As cell renewal and turnover start to decline, we can see an uneven complexion and duller skin.

How to look after your skin in your 30s

To help your skin look younger, brighter and less blemished, we recommend regular microdermabrasion treatments.  These use specialist equipment to propel miniature grains across the surface of your skin, removing dead cells and revealing softer, tighter, brighter skin underneath.   We also recommend regular cleansing and nourishing facials.  Book a free Face Mapping® Skin Analysis and we will identify your skin type and condition before prescribing a personalised skin care regime.

In Your 40s

During our 40s our skin gradually starts to thin and dehydration can become an issue as the skin’s protective lipids decline.  Hormone imbalances at this time can also lead to adult breakouts and uneven skin tone. More obvious signs of aging start to appear.

How to look after your skin in your 40s
