  1. Discover the latest anti-ageing secret. Becoming younger from within and Future Proof Your Skin

    3
    Article by Dr Stefanie Williams While some people are genetically lucky and, seemingly without any effort, be able to maintain healthy, young looking skin and vitality into high age, most of us are not that fortunate. However, the good news is that genes merely express tendencies and that they are greatly affected by our lifestyle. In my new book, ‘Future Proof Your Skin’, I share the secret of why we are not just a ‘slave to our genes’, but how we can actively influence them. It is about future proofing your skin and future proofing your entire body and mind, by changing the way you eat. This book will change your life as it has changed mine. Slowing down the ageing process I have been painstakingly...
  2. About Antioxidants and the Skin

    Comment
    Article by Dr Stefanie Williams ‘Antioxidants’ is one of the biggest buzzwords in skincare these days. I get countless questions about them in clinic every day. There seems to be a lot of confusion about what exactly antioxidants are and how they should be used. So I have summarized the most important facts about antioxidants here:   What is an antioxidant? Antioxidants are substances, which can neutralize free radicals. By neutralising free radicals, they prevent a harmful reaction called the oxidative chain reaction. Antioxidants in skincare therefore reduce ‘oxidative stress’ in the skin, help to prevent damage and thus reduce the risk of premature skin ageing and possibly even skin cancer.   What are free radicals & oxidative stress? Free radicals (‘reactive oxygen species’ – ROS) are highly reactive molecules, which contain at least...
  3. Living for 1000 years – apparently not so unlikely!

    1
    Article by Dr Stefanie Williams I just watched a highly entertaining talk by the brilliant Aubrey De Grey on the possibility of significantly extending human lifespan (we are talking about hundreds of years!) and that this is actually not an unlikely concept even in people of our generation. This is of course an extremely fascinating theory and what is reassuring is that Aubrey is actually an acclaimed anti-ageing researcher and scientist at Cambridge University. What he says is basically that in the future we will be able to gradually extend our life span more and more and eventually even be able to turn back the clock, rather than simply stopping it. The key is that the gradual extension of life span is not a linear development, but is...
  4. 8 signs of ageing skin

    Comment
    Article by Dr Stefanie Williams. Skin ageing is more than just lines and wrinkles Here are the 8 most common giveaways:  Lines and wrinkles: As we age, we develop ‘dynamic lines’ (i.e. lines caused by repeated movement of mimic muscles such as frown lines and crow’s feet) and ‘static lines’ (i.e. lines which develop independent of mimic movement such as the nose-to-mouth lines).  Irregular pigmentation: With age, our skin tone become less even and we may develop brown patches and ‘freckly’ sun spots. This is a clear sign of chronic sun damage (you never develop them in sun-protected skin areas such as the buttocks!).  Loss of volume: With age we loose volume in our face and one of the first areas our fat ‘padding’ goes, are our upper cheeks. So with age,...
