General Tips & Advice

  • Reduce toxins (alcohol, processed food, chemicals), drink more water (aim for 2 litres per day) and get more sleep! If you smoke - try to give up - smoking depletes oxygen at cellular level, a major factor in ageing skin, causing a dull, lifeless look.
  • Use home care recommended to you, this will have been specifically chosen to address your skin issues – do not mix with other brands
  • Ageless products are active and work at cellular level to correct, prevent and nourish the skin – if using anything from this line you may notice changes in your skin as you become acclimatised. It is important to introduce these products slowly. Start 2 x per week and gradually increase. The following are considered normal and may last a few weeks into usage;
    • tingling on application
    • tightness or feeling of dryness
    • mild shedding
    • mild irritation
