Slow ageing – how does the new trend work?

Slow ageing – it goes perfectly with the concepts of slowing down that allow us to rediscover a natural rhythm of life again. The trend is catching on in many areas and not only works for cosmetic treatments but can also influence your entire way of living. Discover here what slow ageing is about and how to slow ageing for yourself.

What is slow ageing?

Slow ageing accepts that our bodies are subject to the unstoppable phenomenon of ageing. We cannot stop these developmental processes. However, it is possible to slow down the ageing of the body, and the skin itself along with it, using various methods. In which areas of life can you influence ageing? Things you can do include:
  • Adopting a healthy lifestyle

  • Eating a balanced diet

  • Drinking enough fluids

  • Using skincare that promotes the regeneration of the skin and offers good protection from harmful environmental influences

  • Attaining mental equilibrium

Those who opt for the slow ageing method will not lose their composure with the appearance of every little new wrinkle. Mature skin that is optimally supplied with nutrients and moisture can radiate youth, even with lines and small wrinkles. With a positive attitude, you calmly accept the unavoidable external changes and make the best of them for yourself. Expression lines on the face can be evidence of frequent smiling or laughing. A few grey hairs can be signs of wisdom. To ensure you still feel good in your own skin and keep it healthy, use selected high-quality skincare products that give your complexion radiance.

Why does the skin age?

Your skin, like the entire human body, is subject to the natural ageing process. How fast this happens depends on your genetic predisposition as well as external influences. As the ageing process progresses, many metabolic processes happen more slowly than in youth, including skin regeneration. Your skin is not as well supplied with moisture. It becomes less elastic and firm. Fine lines and wrinkles therefore appear over time. Due to the influence of UV light as well as medications or skin intolerances, pigment spots or redness occasionally appear.

What is the difference between slow ageing and anti-ageing?

The difference between slow ageing and anti-ageing lies primarily in the philosophy behind these two methods. With slow ageing, you accept that your body is not always perfect. Instead of combating wrinkles or fine lines with Botox and beauty procedures, you can opt for less harsh treatment methods. You gently achieve an improvement in your skin with regenerating, nourishing and protective cosmetics. The goal is not to halt the ageing process completely but just to slow it down. With anti-ageing, a stricter beauty ideal is often what people strive for. Admittedly, the lines between the two methods are fluid.


You should not underestimate the importance of sun protection! Skin ageing is significantly influenced by UVA rays. Therefore, make sure to wear sunscreen as often as possible. While textures used to be unpleasantly sticky and whitish, today manufacturers use the latest formulations that make sunscreen with a high sun protection factor wearable in everyday life.

Promoting the natural regeneration of the skin with serums

With a facial serum and an eye serum, you can boost the regeneration of the skin on your face. Apply the highly-concentrated active ingredients immediately after your cleansing routine and allow them to sink in a little before you apply a day cream or night cream.The Advanced Génifique Serum from Lancôme contains hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and prebiotic as well as probiotic extracts. It promotes skin regeneration, supplies moisture and improves your skin tone. Visible signs of premature skin ageing are reduced and your skin’s protective barrier is strengthened.The Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye and Eyelash Serum from Lancôme is especially designed to care for the sensitive eye area. It firms your skin, while defining the eye contour. Plus, it reduces the signs of skin ageing, such as crow’s feet, wrinkles and bags under the eyes.


As you see, slow ageing is the perfect way to slow down premature skin ageing with gentle methods. Don’t just pay attention to cosmetics but integrate your entire lifestyle into the concept. In doing so, not only your complexion, but also your health, will benefit from slow ageing. Don’t stress when fine lines and wrinkles or a few grey hairs appear. Simply decide for yourself whether feeling good is better than looking good. Soft, smooth skin does not lose anything in its function due to a few small wrinkles or pigment spots. It protects your body perfectly, lets it breathe and allows it to make important connections to the outside world via the senses of touch and temperature. Treat your skin to high-quality skincare that will help with its regeneration process every day. Discover the perfect skincare products for your slow ageing routine at parfumdreams now!
