As the party season approaches, we asked our skincare expert for her top tips on how to revitalise skin to achieve a luminosity for glowing skin through the festivities!
As our skin starts to age, the natural hydration and collagen production levels start to decline making it harder to retain the skin's vital elasticity. This, over time, results in the gradual appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and a loss in the plumpness and firmness which is seen in more youthful skin.
Our three NEW youth enhancing products are specifically designed to fit into your current skincare regime, to support the reinvigoration of your skin's natural vitality.
Used either as individual products for targeted results or combined as skin saviours to layer on their power-packed skin benefits, we've done the hard work for you and created multi-purpose anti-agers to simplify your choices. Often the hardest part of scaling up your skincare regime can be deciding which are the best products to use.
Here are a few top tips to help you navigate the right products for you.
Why would I use a facial serum?
Serums come in all guises and we like to think of them as an extra blanket for your skin. Sitting beneath your moisturiser, this layer can add huge benefits to the skin's appearance and overall condition.
Designed as a lightweight, fast acting, 'pick-me up' for the skin, serums are packed with a higher concentration of hard working actives than moisturisers since they are not formulated to include the richer emollients and protectors found in moisturisers. They are also lighter in texture and are therefore able to penetrate the skin at a deeper level for truly focused results.
Our Youth Enhancing Hydrate, Smooth & Prime Serum is rich in potent ingredients. British propolis, larch extract and collagen stimulating peptides work in harmony with blackcurrant seed oil to revitalise and re-generate the skin.
Looking to regain your skin's natural hydration?
Hyaluronic acid has been a much mentioned skincare ingredient for some years now. Why? Because it has been proven to help to retain over a 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin, making it a wonderful moisturiser. The body naturally produces hyaluronic acid and almost half is located in the collagen of the skin so it makes sense that replacing it can play a vital role in supporting the production of collagen as it slows down during the ageing process.
We use hyaluronic acid in our Youth Enhancing Plump & Firm Moisturiser, along with our British honey and propolis, and potent raspberry seed oil, rich in moisture-boosting essential fatty acids. Adding concentrated algae to the formulation tightens and strengthens the skin. It's imperative at this time of year especially, to protect the skin's delicate structure against the elements.
A good eye cream can really help to rectify a multitude of issues.
Apply a thin layer of Youth Enhancing Lift & Brighten Eye Cream to brighten the delicate eye area and visibly reduce dark circles. With propolis, oat and silk tree extracts it's designed to strengthen the skin's elasticity over time whilst visibly lifting and plumping on application.
When used in conjunction with an eye mask (try popping Bee Good 3-in-1 Honey & Wild Water Mint Cleansing Water on a couple of cotton wool pads to soothe sore and tired eyes), an eye cream can instantly refresh and combat the signs of ageing.
