Factors resulting in ageing! There are primarily two factors.
Intrinsic factors – Natural ageing process.
Extrinsic factors like diet, disease, environmental pollution and UV radiation.
We can’t avoid ageing or reverse ageing but we can slow down the ageing process if we eat right, exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Also, by including some ingredients in our daily skincare routine, we all can age gracefully!
🔵Sunscreen – The most significant of all! Do not skip a SUNSCREEN even if you are indoors. No skincare product will work if you avoid Sunscreen. It is indispensable.
🔵Niacinamide – or Vitamin B3 is touted as the general skin all-rounder as it renders a multitude of benefits and improves overall skin health. You can incorporate it into your skincare routine if you want to alleviate skin damage caused by pollution and blue light, fade acne scars and pigmentation, reduce the appearance of fine lines, get rid of uneven skin tone & discolouration, make your skin blemish-free, stimulate collagen and enhance skin elasticity, reduce acne, reduce sebum production, hydrate your skin, reduce redness and inflammation

I prefer to take one Evion 600 mg capsule once a day after my first meal. You should always consult your medical practitioner before taking any such vitamins.
🔵Omega -3 Supplements – can balance oils in the diet and can help lengthen the telomere. It reduces oxidative stress and slows down the ageing process. It is found in soya oil, flax seeds, walnuts, seafood and fish to name a few Try and include them in your daily diet and obtain them from regular food items.
