It’s easy to put the breaks on premature ageing – with Lamelle Nourish

Getting older is just a fact of life – but there’s no reason you should have to age prematurely. With the right carefully formulated products and a little help from cutting-edge active ingredients, you can enjoy a more youthful-looking, radiant complexion for longer. 

Still, the emphasis is on the right products and, in a world full of brands vying for your attention, it can be hard to know which can offer you the most benefit. Worse yet, many tend to create ranges specifically for younger skin and then don’t include targeted anti-ageing ingredients, reserving these for their “mature skin” lines. Unfortunately, this isn’t the way to go. In the same way that prevention is always better than cure, the time to use potent and proven anti-ageing products is always as soon as possible. Also, it makes sense if you think about it. You can’t live on a diet of junk food throughout your 20s and 30s and then expect to feel healthy when you suddenly only start paying attention to nutrition in your 40s.

So, let’s get your skin’s “diet” in shape right now, shall we?

Protect and serve  

Sunscreen is often the last thing people add to their routine but it’s one of the first things we like to talk about at Lamelle. Many don’t realise that a good sunscreen is often the most powerful anti-ageing product they possess. After all, more than 80% of premature ageing is caused by unprotected sun exposure. To help protect your skin, you’ll want to use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and apply it every single time you set foot outside. While that one mega-sunburn you got back in the day will always be bad news for your skin’s future, it’s the accumulative damage over time – the little drops in the bucket – that really add up to wrinkles, pigmentation and a loss of elasticity. 

Happily, Lamelle Nourish Multi-active Sun 30 is a heavy-duty protector with a lightweight, non-sticky texture that won’t leave a white cast on your skin. Packed with Pycnogenol, nature’s super antioxidant, it works hard to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals, tamp down inflammation and even helps repair UV-caused damage to your skin’s DNA. In short, it’s an anti-ageing not-so-secret weapon that can protect your skin now – in a way where you’ll reap the benefits long into the future. 

Antioxidants are your friends 

At Lamelle, we’re so confident about the power of proven antioxidants we put them in everything – even our cleansers. Nourish Daily Cleanse, for example, is our best-selling soap-free foaming cleanser. It’s gentle enough for any skin type and you’ll even benefit from it long after you’ve rinsed it away as it leaves cell-protecting antioxidants and anti-inflammatories in its wake. Talk about more bang for your buck!

Speaking of antioxidants, you’ll want to know about astaxanthin. (We know… we know… it’s a real tongue twister. It’s pronounced “asta-zan-thin”.) Essentially the “hulk” of the carotenoid family, its free radical-zapping ability is up to 100 times more powerful than beta-carotene and lycopene. Other superpowers include protecting your skin from UV damage, calming inflammation and bolstering your skin’s immune system (yep, it’s not just your body that has one!) For these reasons, you’ll find astaxanthin is one of the star actives in both our Nourish moisturisers – Nourish Revitalise Cream (for drier skin types) and Revitalise Lite (for oily/combination skin). They also include revolutionary enzymes that actively seek out and repair damage to your skin’s DNA. Clever? We think so too! 

The bottom line 

At the end of the day, it is possible to age as slowly as possible. To ensure you get the very best advice and use the products from which you’ll reap the most benefits, we suggest you chat with a Lamelle skincare therapist. They’ll be able to help you create a routine that will include potent and proven anti-ageing ingredients that can protect as well as repair your skin. Remember, the very best time to start investing in a more youthful-looking future will always be today.
