4 easy (and free) age-halting beauty habits

1. Let it go

"Stress lifts adrenaline (your 'fight or flight' hormone). This redirects blood to the muscles and away from the skin, draining colour. Chronic stress
stiffens facial muscles, leading to expression lines, and weakens the immune system, leaving your skin vulnerable to harsh weather and pollutants."

DO try to maintain a balance and listen to your body. Protect skin with Oil-Free Daily Defense SPF50 £46 kerstinflorian.co.uk

2. Do less crazy exercise

"Exercise boosts the oxygen and nutrient supply to the skin, and aids the removal of toxins, leaving you glowing. However, too much increases stress, causing hormonal imbalances and dehydration. Extreme weight loss also decreases skin elasticity and fat, leading to premature lines and wrinkles."

DO work out three times a week with a balance of cardio exercise, weights and yoga or pilates. Rehydrate skin with Hydra Sparkling Moisturizing Mask £34.78 Givenchy or 27 Bio-Energizing Cell Repair Balm £112 ME Skinlab.

3. Avoid Sugar

"Eating sugar creates advanced glycation end (AGE) compounds, which damage collagen and neutralize antioxidants, including skin ageing. Switch from simple carbs like white bread to complex ones, like brown rice, sweet potato and fruit."

DO protect skin with anti-AGE solutions like Formula 2006+ £120 Dr Frances Prenna Jones or Advanced Night Repair £38 estee-lauder.co.uk.

4. Get more sleep

"While in deep sleep, we produce hormones that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Lack of sleep causes dark circles, bags, sagging grey skin and in the long term, crow's feet and frown lines."

DO sleep seven to nine hours each night. Refresh tired eyes with Eye Contour Lift Patches £49.95 Institut Esthederm or Hydra+ Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream £10.99 Roc.
