Most of us want to look as good as we can whatever our age. And we’re not alone. In a recent customer survey, an overwhelming number of Australian and New Zealand women told us that their single biggest skin concern is signs of ageing.
The Two Types of Skin Ageing
There are two types of skin ageing. The first is chronological ageing which is the normal and natural ageing of the skin. As we mature our skin becomes thin and looser because natural elastin and collagen stores slowly break down. But chronologically aged skin can still look radiant and flawless – think Helen Mirren.
The second type of skin ageing is photo-ageing and this is basically premature ageing caused by sun damage. Repeated sun exposure breaks down our natural collagen and elastin stores much more quickly and fine lines and wrinkles begin developing far earlier. Skin becomes thicker and coarser and pores can be enlarged giving an ‘orange peel’ look. Brown sun spots and scattered red veins make the tone and texture of the skin look tired and older.
Anti-ageing formulated for Australian and New Zealand women
According to research, and quite a lot of it, up to 90% of the signs of skin ageing are caused by UV exposure. And here in New Zealand and Australia we live with the harshest UV rays in the world. In fact, a recent study from Monash University in Melbourne found that Australian women are ageing faster and look more than 20 years older than their Northern Hemisphere counterparts. You can read more about that here.
All of which sounds rather gloomy. But the great news is that the signs of photo-ageing can be reversed and it is really never too late to start a dedicated anti-ageing skincare regime.
At Oasis Beauty, we have researched and developed a proven 3-Step Healthy Skin Anti-Ageing Programme™. It brings together effective products formulated to combat the damage of UV exposure or photoageing. These essential products will help to repair sun damage including fine lines, sun spots, redness and pigmentation as well as protecting collagen. So, what are you waiting for? Let's get started!
The 3-Step Healthy Skin Anti-Ageing Programme™
At Oasis Beauty we base our skincare philosophy on proven, robust science and we always follow three steps:
Healthy Skin Anti-Ageing Programme™ : Step 1 - Cleanse
