Outsmart The Sun: Beat The Most Common Reasons For Skin Ageing

Dr Emma Kearney, Principal Scientist at Oriflame offers us a little expert advice on how to moisturise and take care of your skin during summer to prevent premature ageing.

As an educated and intelligent woman, I've learned that, though the sun's rays make me – and the rest of the world – happy, they're harmful to my skin. Tanning can age my skin (and, as I'm closer to 40 than 30, this really isn't what I want). I also know sporting a really deep tan has gone out of vogue – but I still yearn for that golden, healthy-looking glow. The good news is that it's possible to have bronzed skin while glowing with health, too. We asked Dr. Emma Kearney for her tips on how to take care of my skin throughout the summer.


How to prevent premature ageing
“Use a lotion with an SPF of 15 or higher, and UVA protection. Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going out and reapplying every two hours – more often if you've been swimming or sweating,” suggests Emma.

How to prevent premature ageing
“Daily suncare is essential; use a face cream containing an SPF – and apply generously!”

How to prevent premature ageing:
“Don't skimp on the moisturiser; use it day and night to maintain hydration and skin tone.”



“Cover up your skin, stay in the shade, protect your eyes, and stay hydrated and glowing from the inside by drinking plenty of water and eating well.”
