Psst, we reveal the secrets to looking five years younger.
Your beauty sleep could have an ageing effect. When you sleep on your side or front, your skin presses against your pillow and develops fine lines over time. So sleep on your back, and invest in satin or silk pillowcases to reduce friction when you toss and turn.
Don’t allow your skin to bake in the sun. It not only ages your skin at record speed, but also causes it to look thin and lined. Half your time in direct sunlight, and invest in a hat, sunglasses and broad spectrum sunscreen.
Powder formulas tend to be more dehydrating and accentuate fine lines. To soften the appearance of wrinkles, switch to a moisturising liquid foundation.
Since our skin colour tends to change as we age, it also helps to regularly update your foundation shade – a mismatched foundation will make you look older.
For an antioxidant boost, stock up on green tea and honey, which won’t cause inflammation and ageing like sugar does. Also fill your fridge with wild salmon that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids for inside-out moisture, as well as free radical fighters such as blueberries and strawberries.

Less Is More
Heavy makeup accentuates your age, and tends to crease around expression lines. Forgo dramatic eye and lip colours and go for neutral eyeshadows, and soft pink or nude lipstick. Trade your full contouring kit for cream or liquid highlighters that make your face look fuller and healthier.
Kickstart Self Repair
Cellular repair slows down with age, and the key signs of ageing start to creep up. To reactivate cellular mechanism and teach old cells to behave like young cells again, Yves Rocher Serum Vegetal is formulated with the Ice Plant from the South African desert.
Cultivated at Yves Rocher’s farm in La Gacilly, and processed with a cutting-edge technology, it is delivered deep into targeted cells. Known to withstand harsh weather conditions, this plant accelerates cellular regeneration to fight wrinkles. Skin looks more youthful and makeup glides on flawlessly.
