Skincare for Premature Ageing

At Dr Sam’s, we’re all for ageing at your own pace. Our products keep your skin nourished, moisturised, and packed full of retinoids for skin that stays bright and strong as you age.

We’ll help you age gracefully while reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. Our serums include retinoids, an ingredient that thickens the skin’s epidermis and dermis, thereby reducing the signs of premature ageing.


What Causes Premature Ageing?

Several factors can lead to ‘premature ageing’, or fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. Some of the most common causes of this are:

  • Alcohol consumption
  • Lack of sleep
  • Poor diet
  • Smoking
  • UV exposure

While these environmental and lifestyle factors can contribute to premature ageing, your skin will naturally age as you grow older.

Using the right products with the right ingredients, like retinoids, can help
reduce premature signs of ageing.

When to Start Using Anti-Ageing Cream

There’s no set age at which you ‘should’ start using anti-ageing products. The key ingredients that tackle premature ageing are retinoids.

Visible ageing happens when the skin’s collagen production slows, which typically begins in your mid-20s. Retinoids reduce inflammation and regulate the growth of skin cells, compensating for the loss of naturally produced collagen and slowing the visible ageing process of the skin.

How to Use Retinoids

Our retinoids come in the form of serums, which should be used after cleansing your face. You’ll want to build up your use of retinoids so as not to overwhelm your skin, so start with half a pump of product every other day.

Gradually increase this to a full pump and daily use.
