But, not anymore. I have dug deep, researched through many A-lister facialists and cosmetic surgeons to unveil the Pandora box of well-kept beauty secrets. And today, I want to enlighten ageing women all over the world about these treatments. Ready to join the next big things that defy the age clocks? Read on…
1. Exfoliate with caution:
Never, ever and I mean neverrrr, everrrrr rub those granular scrubs of exfoliator harshly on your skin. Your facial skin should be treated as gently as an exquisite glass masterpiece. It needs all the tender, love, care and affection in the world. Hence. always buy a good quality exfoliator, which doesn’t have glaring particles of sea salt, crushed shells or anything too rough. And boy, if you have sensitive skin or rosacea then totally steer clear yourself from using physically abrasive ingredients in an exfoliator. Always look for an exfoliator with finest particles possible to slow down the cell turnover of your facial skin.
2. Toning your skin is the key:
While cleaning and exfoliating rip your skin off its natural oils and sheen, it is this pivotal step of toning that gives it its natural state. Toning helps you in maintaining the pH balance of your skin, while also helping with diminishing dark spots. Religiously follow up the cleaning, moistening and toning process by applying a generous amount of sunblock on your face and hands to keep away fine lines away at bay.
3. Sleep hygienically and with care:
This might seem like a misplaced advice in an anti-ageing skin care tips read, but my dear, this is one of my secret weapons of getting that flawless, toned skin. Wondering how? I make it a point to swap my pillow case and bedsheet in every few days as sleeping on dirty ones can lead to excessive oil build up leading to acne, freckles, blemishes and breakouts. Also, I make it a point to consciously sleep on my back.

In fact, I also make it a point to add a few drops of essential oils to my humidifier at night during winter months in order to keep my skin supple and hydrated.
4. Sensitive and non-surgical dermatological treatments like thermage, botox and filler treatments:
Those of you who are susceptible to severe skin problems such as acne or any type of scarring can take the shield of sensitive dermatology treatment, opting for treatments like thermage, botox and filler treatments under a certified dermatologist is the way to go! I have personally undergone the botox treatment in this famous South Delhi-based cosmetologists’ centre and boy was I surprise with the end result! My mindset was clear, I wanted a natural-looking skin with a lifted, toned and radiant effect by the end of it. And that is what I exactly got. Wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and under-eye dark circles are some of the displeasing signs of ageing that can make your cheery mood gloomy at once you notice them. You can combat against these signs and shoo them away by undergoing treatment under a board-certified cosmetic and plastic surgeon.
