Coco Chanel once said, ‘nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty’. And when it comes to maintaining gorgeous skin starting early is key. Signs of ageing occur when ceramides, a critical component of skin, decrease with age, making the skin vulnerable to irritation and environmental stress. Loss of collagen and elastin, the two major proteins that keep skin firm and elastic and damage caused by free radicals all lead to wrinkled and aged skin. “After we turn 25, the moisture barrier layer tends to weaken and our body loses its collagen protein. So, the sooner you start using anti-ageing products, the longer your skin will be firm, smooth, and supple,” cautions Mandeep Kaur, trainer, Elizabeth Arden. If you are skeptical about the actual benefits of using these products, Dr Apratim Goel, consultant, L’Oréal Paris assures you that they do work but in moderation. “Don’t get carried away by the company claims. Try and understand your skin needs and set your expectations accordingly. Sometimes if the problem is really bad, you might want to do a combination of homecare products along with cosmetic treatments like peels, lasers, microdermabrasion and fillers,” she suggests. Ensure you use the products consistently and don’t expect instant results. Most products will only start showing results after a month of continued use. “When using night creams, massage them in for a minute gently to see that they are properly absorbed,” says Goel. Also, it works better if you stick to one company as far as possible. “If you use multiple brands, you will never see the benefits of any brands,” believes Anjali Gaekwar, sales and education manager, Estée Lauder. Though, relying on products only to get great skin would not be wise. Beauty equals good habits. Meeta Awatramani, training manager, Clarins, believes that a balanced diet, using sunscreen daily, following a proper cleansing and moisturising routine, managing stress, drinking plenty of water and treating your skin gently can all delay the on-set of ageing.
