If so, you're not alone. As we age, our skin goes through a lot of changes, and it can be tough to know how to combat the signs of ageing. It's time to learn how to glow your way through the natural process of ageing, which is why we've put together the ultimate Medik8 skincare routine for ageing skin, from the best cleansers to the most effective serums & moisturisers.

Whether you're in your 30s, 40s or beyond, this simply routine will help you achieve the healthy, radiant skin you've always wanted!

What is ageing skin?

Before we dive into the ultimate Medik8 skincare routine for ageing skin, it's important to understand the changes that occur in our skin as we age. As we get older, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, two proteins that help keep our skin firm and elastic. This is what leads to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Oh, and it doesn't stop there...

Our skin's natural oil production decreases, which can lead to dryness and flakiness. Yep, there's more...

Finally, our skin's natural exfoliation process slows down, leading to a build-up of dead skin cells and a dull, tired-looking complexion. We're here to find a perfect routine that will allow you to Age Well and Glow!
