& # 39; The first thing that comes to mind to prevent signs of aging is sunscreen. Your best skin insurance policy, a good sunscreen will never disappoint you, & Lucy wrote for Mecca website.
Which ingredients should you look for in skin care?
* Green tea
* Hyaluronic acid
* Glycolic acid
* Lactic acid
* Vitamin C
The expert also mentioned green tea as an ingredient of a hero for slowing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age pigmentation.
& # 39; Green tea is an absolute master in maintaining your skin, especially if you live in Australia and New Zealand or are exposed to a lot of UV radiation, & # 39; she said.
Lucy said you can find green tea in a number of skin products, including her favorite, the AmorePacific skin care line.
This is grown in extreme weather conditions such as the southern hemisphere and is & # 39; full of restorative, anti-inflammatory and UV / pollution neutralizing antioxidants & # 39 ;.
Elsewhere, the expert said you should look for the words hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, jojoba, and vitamin C in the products you buy.
The areas you need to take care of most with your anti-aging skin care are the eye area and the neckline, which are both more delicate and thinner (stock image)
When it comes to where you need to be careful with your skin, Lucy said it's all about the smaller, more delicate parts of the skin.
& # 39; The funny thing is that the areas where we see aging for the first time are often the last places we care, especially the area around the eyes and the neckline, & # 39; she said.
This is because the skin in these places is thinner and more sensitive and is also in the direct fire line of the sun.
& # 39; One damage has been caused, it is difficult to reverse, but the skin is an extremely intelligent organ that spends most of its time rolling back damage, & # 39; said Lucy.
One of the best products you can include in your routine here is retinol – which works to repair the skin and minimize skin problems such as wrinkles, lines, sagging and pigmentation.
If you want to try treatments to delay the effects of aging, the Mecca expert has recommended LED light therapy (photo: Dr. Dennis Gross & # 39; s LED mask)
Finally, if you want to try treatments to help slow the effects of aging, Lucy said that LED light therapy is the best way to spend your money.
These can often be purchased as treatment at various skin clinics, or you can purchase your own home mask, such as the LED light mask from Dr. Dennis Gross.
If you have an LED light treatment, she recommends that you include both a blue and a red light in your regime.
Red lights stimulate collagen and build up the skin so that lines and wrinkles look better.
Blue lights help smooth the texture of the skin and get rid of acne.
