Dove Younger looking skin

Tips for resilient skin: younger-looking skin for longer

If you ask us, mature skin care isn’t about how to look younger. It’s about how to keep your skin acting youthful – keeping that skin production cycle going at the same speed it always has.

    Don’t just apply your products; work them in. 

    Giving your body a good massage, like with our DermaSpa Uplifted+ Body Roll-On, during your skin care routine won’t just get those products sinking in; it’s said to stimulate collagen and elastin production, too

    Protect your skin from sun.

    The biggest thing you can do for healthy, younger-looking skin is to protect it from the sun. The UVA rays it emits leads to photoageing (and this damage can cause wrinkles, age spots and loss of elasticity), so using SPF, keeping your skin covered up or staying out of the sun when it’s at its strongest could help keep your skin healthy and damage-free longer
