Cleanse twice a day, ev­ery sin­gle day Whether you pre­fer a creamy wipe-off for­mula or a face wash, cleanse morn­ing and night to tackle dirt and en­vi­ron­men­tal tox­ins, and then ap­ply a good mois­turiser to keep skin pro­tected and hy­drated.

Ap­ply an SPF Win­ter or sum­mer, this is a key anti-ager, and you prob­a­bly need more than you’re us­ing – a tea­spoon for your face and neck is the rule of thumb. Is there SPF in your foun­da­tion? That’s great – but it’s not enough.

Ex­fo­li­ate reg­u­larly Use an ex­fo­li­at­ing mask or spe­cially for­mu­lated ex­fo­li­at­ing cleanser once or twice a week to help keep your skin glow­ing, re­move dead cells and en­sure that mois­turis­ers and serums ab­sorb well.

Go big on an­tiox­i­dants An­tiox­i­dants pro­tect skin cells from dam­age and age­ing, so get yours in two forms: via a daily serum, and in foods like blue­ber­ries, beans and nuts.

Drink plenty of water A glass when you wake up, be­fore meals, af­ter bath­room breaks and be­fore bed will do the trick.
