“How to look younger: Expert shares 5 anti-ageing skincare tips for ‘brighter’ skin”

Healthy, fresh and radiant skin is a key part of an attractive appearance. While there are plenty of products and treatments out there to help, there are also some very simple and cost-effective ways of boosting the skin’s appearance. It really doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult.

Express.co.uk asked Dr Ross Perry, founder and Medical Director of Cosmedics Skin Clinics, to provide his expert input for their list of 5 anti-ageing skincare tips for ‘brighter’ skin.

1/ Hydration

Dr Ross Perry started with the issue of hydration, explaining:

“Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. It’s no myth that by drinking at least eight glasses of water a day will keep skin looking healthy, smooth and plump.”

He said that when it is dehydrated, the skin can look “dry” and “flaky”. In addition, “wrinkles are more pronounced”.

Ross continued:

“Drinking water also helps to flush your system of toxins whilst reducing the risk of acne and other skin problems.

“If your skin is oily, then your pores will clog up, eventually leading to acne breakouts.”

2/ Sleep

The next tip for more youthful-looking skin is to ensure you get plenty of sleep.

Dr Ross Perry explained:

“It’s not called beauty sleep for no reason. Your body needs time to restore itself overnight and that includes your face, too.

“While you sleep your skin is making new collagen and busy repairing DNA damage from the day before.

“Fewer wrinkles means younger looking skin. Well rested skin looks more healthy, brighter and indeed we lose the puffiness under our eyes which can make us look older.”

3/ SPF

Dr Ross Perry’s top product recommendation is to “wear an SPF all year round” – even on colder, darker days. He explained:

“A large percentage of ageing is down to wrinkles. Even in winter we should be wearing a sunscreen every day before applying make-up.

“Just because it’s a cold, cloudy day it doesn’t mean you won’t be exposed to the strong UVA rays that cause premature ageing and potential skin cancer.

“Even if your make-up has added SPF do use a separate SPF as part of your skin care routine.”

4/ Exfoliation

Next, Dr Ross recommended regular exfoliation treatment to help remove dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin.

He explained:

“It’s important to exfoliate the skin because as we age our skin’s natural ability to shed skin cells slows down, which can lead to dull, flaky and congested looking skin and can therefore make you look older.

“Cleansing won’t do quite the same job as an exfoliator and actually the dead skin cells left on the skin can inhibit other products working.

“Therefore, to make sure skin is looking tip top and working well with other products and indeed giving the skin a good base for make-up.

“Exfoliation every few days will prove to have a real benefit on the overall appearance of the skin.”

5/ Serum

Finally, Dr Ross Perry recommends a hydrating serum to replenish the skin and make it appear “brighter, firmer and smoother”.

Dr Perry told Express.co.uk:

“Serums are also rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C which targets uneven skin tone and helps with anti-ageing.

“Molecules in serums are smaller than molecules in a moisturiser which allows the product to absorb much deeper into the pores, again creating a fresher, younger appearance.”

How to use serum

Dr Ross Perry recommended cleansing and toning as normal, then applying a few drops of serum to the hands and patting into the skin. This should ideally be done, twice a day before moisturising. It doesn’t replace moisturiser, but adds and extra dimension to your skincare
