1. Keep Your Skin Well Hydrated

Well-hydrated skin is the key to fight premature aging. Always include a moisturiser in your skincare regime. It was found that men with dry skin are more likely to develop deep wrinkles! So keeping our skin plumped up with moisture is one of the most important routines we need to keep. Céll Fùsion C - Endogene K (moisturizer) helps to protect sensitive skin from external stimuli. Skin will also be moisturised and brightened by its nourishing and hydrating effects.

2. Do Not Neglect The Windows to Your Soul

The skin around our eyes is thinner than the skin on the rest of our face. Because of that, the eye contour is always the first to show signs of aging where fine lines may develop into crow's feet and deep wrinkles or dull and puffy eyes may turn into eyebags. Besides applying eye creams regularly, fillers can help to make them less visible and restore youth to our face. 

3. Remember Your Sunblock Wherever You Go!

UVA and UVB rays accelerates aging, causing wrinkles, brown spots, and sagging skin. Many are unaware of this but UV rays can reach you even if you are not under direct sunlight. Hence it is advisable to use a broad spectrum sunblock with both UVA and UVB protection all year round, regardless of whether you are indoors or outdoors. Céll Fùsion C Laser Sunscreen 100 (SPF50+/PA+++) effectively protects the skin from both UVA and UVB while keeping it healthy.

Do not fret if there are already visible signs of sun damage on your skin. Pigmentation can be effectively reduced in a short amount of time when treated with laser treatments like the Medlite HOYA ConBio offered in ASTIQUE.

4. Drink Lots of Water

Skin cells are only able to repair and regenerate when the cells are hydrated. Not only does water give you softer and smoother skin, it is also the vehicle that delivers essential nutrients to the skin cells to keep them functioning properly.

5. Grooming

Messy facial hair ages one by decades! No matter how time strapped you are, do remember to trim your eyebrows and facial hair as a well-groomed person definitely appears fresher and younger. Laser hair treatments can help to reduce or eliminate unwanted facial or body hair so that you no longer have to worry about unsightly hair. Step out looking confident and stylish!

6. Pearly Whites

Wearing a smile on your face can definitely up your x factor. However, if our teeth are yellow or stained, it may be more embarassing than cool. Smoking and drinking of coffee and tea are a few possible causes of teeth yellowing or teeth pigmentation, which makes us look older and unattractive. Brush your teeth with Sensodyne teeth whitening toothpaste at least twice daily for a sparkly smile! 

7. Say Goodbye to Tobacco

Smoking is bad for our health and is linked to lung cancer. However, do you also know that smoking cause our skin to appear sallow and decreases collagen production? Aging speeds up when collagen production is affected. Furthermore, smoking also causes puffy eyes and dark eye circles. But not to worry, with Astique signature eye treatments, masks and lasers (which consists of Vitamin C), eye wrinkles, dark circles and eye bags can be reduced and improved.

8. Eat the Right Food

Be selective of what you eat. Not only is eating healthy good for your health in general, eating the right type of food also gives you better skin and helps you look younger. For instance, consume more healthy fats like Omega-3 acids that are found in salmon, walnuts and seeds to give you more radiant skin but on the other hand, refined sugars should be avoided. Because they attack collagen and elastin, which are the key proteins for us to look young and radiant, sugars make your skin look wrinkly and dull.

9. Don't be a Couch Potato

Do we have to emphasise the importance of exercise? Regular workouts are great for your general well-being but sweating during exercise can also help the skin get rid of toxins. Besides that, it can reduce stress and anxiety, gives you better immunity and help you get a more restful sleep. And with these, you are definitely going to be looking well-rested!

10. Have a Good Sleep

Beauty sleep does not only apply to women! Research shown that those who do not get enough sleep develop eyebags and suffer from dull skin as it loses lustre. Skin repairs and renews itself during our sleep hours so do get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep per day.
