How to prevent skin ageing: according to those who should know

How to prevent skin ageing: according to those who should know

No doubt there are a number of contributing factors to skin ageing. Genetics, diet, stress levels, smoking, hydration, sleep loss all play their part, but the overwhelming contributing factor is sun exposure.

You don’t have to take our word for it, there are plenty of reputable institutions who will confirm this including some highlighted below:

The American Academy of Dermatology say that the most important factor is to "protect your skin from the sun every day”. The second most important way to reduce premature skin ageing is to apply a self tanner rather than get a sun tan. “every time you get a tan you prematurely age your skin”. The Academy also highlights how it is never too late to benefit from protecting your skin from the sun.

The National Institute on Aging have four recommendations to keep your skin healthy:

  1. Limit time in the sun
  2. Use sunscreen
  3. Wear protective clothing
  4. Avoid tanning

According to WebMD most of the skin changes associated with ageing are avoidable. And most of them are due to one cause: sun damage.


WebMD outlines four ways to prevent further skin damage:

  1. Stop intentionally sunbathing
  2. Always wear sunscreen
  3. Wear a hat with a brim 
  4. Avoid the sun between 10am and 3pm, when its rays are strongest
