Updated: May 30

With each birthday that passes, our skincare routine becomes a delicate balance of embracing our age while preserving our youth. Aging is a beautiful thing that should be celebrated, for your body has allowed you to experience all that life has given you; however, preventative care will ensure your skin looks and feels its best at any age. 


As we age, our skin undergoes several changes that can reveal signs of aging. This is mostly due to a decrease in collagen production that begins as early as our mid-20's. Visual signs of collagen levels decreasing include fine lines and wrinkles, loss of moisture, reduced elasticity, and overall skin appearance, which are attributed to aging. Understanding where these signs of aging appear and how to reduce them can help us take proactive steps to maintain a youthful, glowing appearance.

Aging Around The Eyes


From your mother to your aesthetician , there's a reason we are told to be so gentle around the contours of the eye. Thinner than the rest of your skin, the delicate skin around the eyes is the first area to show visible signs of aging. This thin skin is prone to damage and becomes more susceptible to fine lines, wrinkles, under-eye puffiness, dark circles, and skin laxity. Factors such as sun exposure, unnecessary roughness, and facial expressions contribute to these aging changes.


It's crucial to be incredibly gentle around the contours of the eyes. This means avoiding unnecessary tugging, such as pulling your eyelid to apply eyeliner and incorporating an eye cream into your daily skincare routine. Starlight Skin's Bright Eyes includes ingredients that target crow's feet, dark circles, and puffiness, with the added benefit of advanced peptides and orchid stem cells to boost elasticity and resilience in the eye contour for an open eye effect. Designed for all ages, Bright Eyes targets loss of moisture, skin laxity, and wrinkles associated with environmental damage.


Kaye's tip: apply your eye cream using your ring finger. Why? Because it is the finger with the least strength, meaning you will apply product more gently.

Aging On The Neck


Often overlooked in skincare routines, the skin on the neck displays age-related changes as early as your 20's. Looking down at screens throughout the day and poor posture can accelerate these changes. The natural decline of collagen over time leads to horizontal lines (also known as "tech neck,") loose skin, a crepey appearance, and skin discolouration. Sun damage also contributes to these changes.


To maintain a youthful appearance on the neck, we recommend treating your neck as you would your face. Embracing a comprehensive skincare regimen with proper cleansing, toning, and moisturizing to maintain a youthful appearance will help to reduce signs of aging. Additionally, a daily SPF sunscreen is crucial to combat signs of aging. A targeted treatment like Starlight Skin Eternal Glow Youth Serum 2.0 followed by StarLUX or StarLIGHT Moisturizer (catered to your skin type,) is your best defence against signs of aging on the neck. Apply these products with gentle upward strokes to help combat the effects of gravity on the neck.

Aging On The Chest


The skin between the neck and chest, also known as the décolleté, is prone to similar signs of aging. The thin and delicate skin of the décolleté can reveal wrinkling, crepiness, and skin discolouration, like age and sun spots. Lack of attention to this area may result in more significant visible signs of aging and should be cared for accordingly.


To address signs of aging on the décolleté, we recommend extending your skincare regimen to the décolleté area. Cover the area with SPF, and use a targeted treatment like Starlight Skin Eternal Glow Youth Serum 2.0 followed by StarLUX or StarLIGHT Moisturizer (catered to your skin type.) To seal in hydration and for a glowy appearance, apply a few drops of Argan Glow for ultimate suppleness. For advanced signs of aging and sun damage, Starlight Transformation treatments like IPL and laser can enhance the chest's appearance.

Aging On The Hands


Our hands often betray our age first and can appear older than the face, neck, and chest. Exposure to sun damage, harsh chemicals from cleaning, and constant daily activities cause the skin on the hands to start thinning, become wrinkled, and experience skin discolouration.


To combat these signs of aging, we recommend using StarLUX Moisturizer with a few drops of Argan Glow to give your hands the hydration they crave. These results-driven products have the same age-improving benefits for the back of the hands as for other areas. Additionally, ensure that you regularly apply SPF throughout the day, especially after washing your hands, to prevent further sun damage.
