Nothing makes you feel better than when people complement you on how well you look. There is no real quick fix to get long term glowing skin without taking care of it on a daily basis but with the tips and suggested products below let us help take the stress out of your daily routine and help you to look the best you can be, naturally.
Everyday your skin is challenged and damaged by unavoidable environmental factors— the sun, pollution and blue light from computers and phones. Sun exposure is the worst when it comes to ageing skin, it makes it look dull and creased. It is vital to always wear a good sunscreen when you are out and about in the sun outdoors.
Most of us just see our skin as a visible outer layer, but in fact the skin is the largest organ in the body. Underneath the surface of the skin there is a lot of busy work going on!
The skin is the top layer of your entire immune system, protecting you from the outside world with all its germs and bacteria and enabling our sense of touch which is crucial for every day function.
You cannot stop growing older and indeed we should celebrate this; but if you take care of your skin you can help control the signs of ageing skin as it becomes thinner and drier causing wrinkles, age spots and more.
To keep your skin and face healthy you should maintain a good skincare regime every day, protect your skin from UV Rays and refrain from doing abrasive treatments. You will reap the benefits. Always remember to treat your neck and décolletage as an extension of your face as this is a prime place for the early signs of ageing such as dryness, pigmentation and wrinkles.
I am an avid believer in gentle chemical exfoliants for dehydrated and sensitive skins - unlike physical exfoliants they don’t cause micro tears. Mx Skincare uses gentle lactic acid as an exfoliant in the Cosmeceutical Exfoliate+. Respecting the integrity of the skin, it attracts moisture and gives a boost to its cellular regeneration allowing the pH of the skin to lower with excellent results and no damage.
Serums are very important as part of any skincare routine and show impressive results, Mx Skincare has three serums designed to answer all the skin’s needs. These give the skin a more even tone and also help with the skin barrier function. Cosmeceutical Serum Vitamin A+ which is to be used at night is a hero of an anti-ageing serum and will noticeably treat lines and wrinkles.
Dehydration can cause wrinkles and shows in the face, so be aware of this and ensure you drink plenty of water. Eat fresh fruit and vegetables with plenty of greens plus each week a serve or two of an oily fish like salmon [ which has abundant omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin D to help you get your full glow potential.
Cosmeceutical Hydrating Masque + contains hyaluronic acid which retains 1000 times its weight in water. This is a top product to use anytime during the week when ever your skin needs a boost of hydration and is a must have for long haul flights enabling you to land with fresh glowing skin.
If you prefer a facial oil, the Cosmeceutical Facial Oil+ has a cocktail of active ingredients and antioxidants which allow your skin to shine with good health! It is always a good idea to gently massage your face with a little Cosmeceutical Facial Oil+ as this will stimulate the skin and increase blood flow which in turn means elevated collagen production. Always be gentle, never drag the skin. Finger pad pressure is excellent as it stops and then releases the blood flow with fresh blood. Light to medium pressure is best
Enjoy your natural healthy glow, you deserve it!
