My skin was young, I had no pigmentation problems and no idea what fine lines or wrinkles meant. I liked my jawline then – tight. Photos were taken with ease, I didn’t have to find a flattering angle to camouflage a jawline which would disappear into the neck 15 years later. Fast forward to 38, I wished I knew how aging began.

From your late 20s, it’s time to invest in anti-aging treatments and have your skin thank you for all you have done later. In this article, SKINMAG interviewed 3 doctors from the SW1 Clinic (who formerly from The Sloane Clinic) for some Continue Reading

Women will do anything to look young, revealed a recent study. Just what is this obsession with youth and how should we go about to ensure we look younger than we feel? Research shows that there are in fact two distinct types of aging, intrinsic and extrinsic aging. Intrinsic aging, also known as the natural aging process, is a continuous process that normally begins in our mid-20s. Collagen production slows down and turnover of new skin cells may start to decrease. Genes control how quickly the normal aging process unfolds. While these changes usually begin in our 20s, the signs of intrinsic aging like wrinkles, sagging skin etc may not be visible for years.

Don’t wait until it’s too late to start on your journey to more youthful skin as if you start early to maintain the Continue Reading
