First Signs of Ageing? Tips On Getting Your Glow Back
First Signs of Ageing? Tips On Getting Your Glow Back


The first signs of ageing are dull skin, bigger pores and fine wrinkles. Most of us lose our young healthy glowing skin when we reach our mid or late 30s. While modern day beauty products and treatments keep us younger for longer, our lifestyle pushes us a step back. Long working hours, lack of natural light, sleep deprivation and parenthood all take their toll when it comes to ageing.

So I decided to share with you my morning and evening routine that combats all three signs of ageing is suitable for all the skin types. And I promise you will notice the difference in your skin appearance right away.


A good brush is a must in your morning and evening cleansing routine. Besides effectively removing all traces of makeup, it exfoliates and stimulates your blood circulation and paves the way for optimal absorption of any topical products applied thereafter. I personally prefer CLARISONIC (sensitive head).


Glycolic Acid essentially removes the “glue” from the upper layer of skin that holds onto the old, dead skin cells. Old skin layers prevent penetration of nutrients necessary for the regeneration and protection of the ageing skin. As glycolic acid exfoliates it removes this old skin, stimulating normal regeneration of skin cells. It also stimulates fibroblasts (connective tissue cells), which are responsible for the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin. Fine wrinkles appear considerably smoother, deep wrinkles become much less pronounced and your skin produces more moisture.

I’m a big fan of SkinCeuticals Blemish & Age Cleansing Gel. Not only does it provides all the above-mentioned benefits, it also prevents occasional breakouts and removes makeup better than any other cleansers I’ve tried. My Clarisonic brush always remains white and clean after I use it with this gel.


I always follow-up with SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5. I can’t stop mentioning enough this product in my reviews because I’m completely addicted to it. It’s one of the best products to use on dehydrated skin. I use it alone or before my serum or moisturiser. I even add it to my foundation when my skin feels particularly thirsty.


Finally, I apply Vitamin C.  Whilst fighting against environmental damage, Vitamin C also brightens your complexion. At the moment, my favourite is Dermarché Labs BioREWIND AM Full-Spectrum Antioxidant Serum.  This product is packed with free radical-fighting antioxidants (Vitamins C and E) to deflect everyday environmental stress, while a cocktail of peptides supports synthesis of elastin and collagen to maintain your skin’s suppleness, resilience and glow.


If you feel like you still need more moisture, follow-up with a moisturiser. I love Chantecaille Flower Harmonizing Cream. This wonderfully complete moisturizing cream feels like “cashmere” on your skin. It contains a full menu of essential oils, seaweed, vitamins and flowers, which feed the skin, reducing inflammation, increasing cellular turnover and promoting collagen production. Furthermore, it contains jasmine, mimosa and narcissus flowers which stimulate cell turnover and purify the skin. Blackcurrant and beech tree are included for their anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities. And finally, Edelweiss adds natural sun protection against the effects of UVA and UVB rays. It always leaves my skin silky smooth, hydrated and blemish free.

    Dear Mbinsider, thank you for recommending belmish and age cleansing gel. My blemishes dried and I have not noticed any new break outs. The skin feels smooth and clean.

  • Grace Newman says:

    My mother jumped for joy when I shared this post to her. She’s also a big fan of SkinCeutical products which made her even excited. She told me she’s going to buy the blemish and age cleansing gel. Thank you for this post!

  • Charlene G says:

    This is just perfect! I’ve been eyeing on skinceuticals cleansing gel ’cause my skin is really sensitive and I can’t seem to figure out how to lessen my breakouts.

  • Mikaella Clair says:

    I have been taking vitamins C and E and I just love how it nakes my skin glow better than before. Thanks for your reviews, it’s great that I had read this before trying to buy skincare products. You look amazing!

  • Rain says:

    If I may add as well that it helps to drink a lot of water, eat clean and not smoke. 🙂

    On top of the beauty regimen to combat aging.

  • Fany says:

    I know all beauty products has all of it’s unique offering but I’ve been reading a lot about alternative skin care like organic herbs and vegan diets. Avocado works great for skin care. I guess I could use a little of both.

  • Mau says:

    Great tips. I haven’t tried cleansing brushes yet and now I want to try one. Good lifestyle habits and skincare regimen are a must for those who wants to maintain their healthy, glowing skin.

  • Rebi says:

    Wow thanks for this recommendations! I would love to try these products too!

  • Anna says:

    I’m in my late 30’s now and it’s true, I can now see that my skin needs some attention. I just normally wash my face at night and moisturizer. What I like most about your articles are the recommended products that you have tried yourself. Thank you again for sharing your beauty regimens!

  • Bianca says:

    My normal beauty rituals are only during nighttime. Always rushing during the day. Reading what these products can do helps to know that somehow you can use just one product and still be able to achieve what you want with your skin.

  • Lovely says:

    I always take good care of my skin because I believe that glowing skin really makes you beautiful even without make-up. I use moisturizer and lotion.

  • Ayna says:

    Good cleansing brush is one of my beauty secrets. It really helps my skin glow. I never tried using serum but I heard so much good things about it. Will try to include it on my beauty regimen. Thanks for sharing these beauty tips.

  • Alex Summers says:

    I do water therapy. At least 6 glasses a day. It is not much but it help me alot.

  • Scott Summers says:

    I agree on you Alex. If I may add having no vices helps out too.
