Anti-ageing skin care regime ’should be started in your 20s’
People who use organic beauty products in their twenties could benefit from decades of glowing, dewy skin.
According to cosmetic expert Dr Rita Rakus, it is best to start anti-ageing skin care routines when you are young "to give your complexion the best possible chance of glowing through the years".
Skin care in your twenties is all about protecting the face against sun damage.
"Never leave the house without wearing a moisturiser that is at least SPF25, to ensure skin is protected around the clock. It’s also advisable to stay away from the ultimate age-inducing habit of smoking," she noted.
"If you don’t smoke, don’t start, and if you do, give it up as soon as you possibly can. Smoking is incredibly ageing on the skin. I know it’s a hard habit to crack, but the earlier you give up, the better your skin will look in the future."
The doctor explained that skin starts losing elasticity when we hit our thirties, so this is the time to invest in a good eye cream, as it is important to keep the delicate under-eye area well hydrated.
Once we reach our forties our natural collagen production plummets, meaning it could be time to give ourselves extra help by way of natural beauty products.
"Plus we lose a lot of volume in our face as a result of fat loss under the skin, which means the fine lines and wrinkles we had in our thirties may deepen and we might see folds appearing on the skin around the ’nose-to-lip’ lines and the jowls, and a general loss of vibrance in the skin," Dr Rakus said.
"Invest in products that will plump, boost collagen production and firm."
In our fifties, intense hydration is "really important", so skin care fans could look into using a serum as well as a moisturiser to keep skin looking fresh and natural.
Healthy living can also play a part in how our skin looks and feels, so make sure you’re drinking enough water every day and try to aim for at least five portions of fruit and vegetables in your diet.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
