Why do we need anti-ageing ingredients?
The body’s ability to turn over new skin cells and produce moisture-boosting ceramides starts to slow down as we grow older. That's why adding skincare products that are mindfully formulated to help prevent the signs of ageing are important. Our skin is affected by over-exposure to sunlight or pollution or even things like internal stress, which can further oxidise our skin cells, hence the usage of antioxidants are important.
What should I use in my routine?
A good skincare regime is essential when it comes to delaying the onset of ageing.
First start off with a good cleanser - cleansing is an important step that is often overlooked!
A good cleanser will help to ensure that your skin is going to absorb the maximum benefits of your skincare routine.
Our multi-award winning Kaleanser helps to remove all the dirt and grime, even waterproof makeup! It contains antioxidants like soy and kale to leave your skin feeling nourished and supple after every wash!
Regular exfoliation is key to unclogging your skin and removing dead skin cells to promote metabolism of our skin cellular turnover - this slows down as we age.
However, be careful not to opt for harsh exfoliants with physical abrasives that may do more harm to your skin than good! Choose exfoliants that are gentle on the skin and don’t leave your skin feeling stripped.
Use a gentle peeling gel - Bright Skies that helps to instantly remove dead skin cells without disrupting your skin barrier. It is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. For oily skin, exfoliate 2 to 3 times a week while those with normal to sensitive skin, 1 to 2 times a week is sufficient.
Serums deliver a high concentration of specific active ingredients to the skin. Incorporating an anti-ageing night serum into your routine will help to target and minimise fine lines.
Youth Beam contains a proprietary tribiotics complex that helps to rebalance and soothe the skin from stress and irritation. It also helps to reduce fine lines and improve skin texture.
It is important to keep your skin hydrated throughout the night. Using an overnight sleeping mask will help to prevent water loss while you sleep. Don’t be confused by this term - it is used and applied the same way you would a night moisturiser!
Dream Capsule contains squalane and purslane that help to retain moisture. It also contains bakuchiol, a star ingredient that smoothes the skin texture, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and helps with overall firming of the skin.
The last but most important step! All will be for nothing if you don’t use sunscreen on a daily basis - it is your anti-aging BFF!
Use Morning Glow, a physical sunscreen that protects you from the harmful UV rays. It is also waterproof, so apply everyday even if you’re indoors.
