These days, there’s an app for everything, and anti-ageing is no exception. We’ve tried and tested some of the top anti-ageing apps on the market, so if you want to turn back the clock using your smartphone, look no further. Let us present to you five apps we’d recommend.
FaceYoga – Facial Health & Fitness
The chances are that you’ve heard about facial yoga by now.
If not, it’s a type of facial exercise that works your muscles and skin to strengthen your face and increase blood circulation, ultimately relieving dress and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a favourite of celebrities like Meghan Markle, and the good news is that it’s really simple.
With the FaceYoga app, you can enjoy a bunch of facial exercises that have been selected to strengthen muscles, increase blood circulation, lift and improve the condition of the skin and relieve stress.
Facial yoga can also aid your anti-ageing routine, helping to keep crow’s feet and other unwanted wrinkles at bay.
It can even diminish the appearance of dark shadows beneath the eyes and tone muscles, reducing your double chin. Time for a session!
As more and more of us consider cosmetic surgery to reverse the signs of ageing and regain our confidence, Oralift offers a natural (and affordable) alternative.
The device is similar to a mouthguard and forces the jaw into a new resting position for short periods with rest breaks.
This puts facial muscles to work and helps reverse the damage done by the ageing process.
The app enhances the experience, allowing Oralift users to properly fit their device, track and monitor progress, receive reminders on when to wear their device, and instantly access helpful guides and videos.
Once you’ve purchased your Oralift kit, you’ll receive a unique code to open the app. From there, you’ll onboard, and start your journey towards a more youthful appearance.
TroveSkin: Your Skincare Coach
If you’re trying to improve your skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, then you should consider the TroveSkin app, a personalised and convenient skincare coaching app, designed to help you look your best.
You can track and analyse changes to your skin, see how your lifestyle and diet is affecting the way you look and understand the status of your skin and your spots, fine lines and texture using unique artificial intelligence technology.
You can even take a skin type quiz to determine your exact skin type, making it easier for you to identify and purchase the right moisturisers and cleansers for your skin.
What sets the app apart from competitors is that you can take part in challenges and earn TrovePoints that can be redeemed for discounts on skincare products, but always check that you’re getting good value for money as free apps often work on an affiliate basis and earn a commission.
Drink Water Reminder
The Water Drink Reminder app encourages you to drink more water through the day, which will ultimately keep you properly hydrated and help your skin maintain its hydration and natural elasticity.
Once you download the app, you’ll be asked to input your current weight, and Water Drink Reminder will determine the right amount of water your body needs every day. Every time you have a bottle of water, you can update the app, and you’ll be reminded when you’re overdue a drink – ideal if you’re trying to clear up your skin and stay in shape.
The app can be customised to your water bottle size, you can add a start and end time to each day so you’re not woken up with an alert, and you can export graphs and logs of your water schedule, syncing to your fitness and weight loss app. What’s more, it sends data to Google Fit and Apple Health, giving you one less thing to type in when monitoring your diet.
SkinSmart – Personal Skincare Journal
If you’re the sort of person who likes to try out the next-big-thing in skincare the second it’s on the market, you’ll love SkinSmart.
It’s a personal skincare journal. Once you’ve signed up for an account, you’ll be able to complete your current skincare routine and track every product you use. Log how your skin feels to find the ideal skincare regime for your needs.
You can even add photos so you can track your progress, and track multiple skin concerns like eczema and acne. You can even schedule routines for specific days of the week, which is great if you’ve just bought a facemask and need to remember to apply it every Tuesday.
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of SkinSmart is that you can select products and see their active ingredients, so you can determine what products work for and against your skin.
