What does anti-ageing really mean? We can’t stop the clock, but we can slow it down a little with the best anti-ageing skin care so that we can feel confident our skin looks its best at any age. The best anti-aging cream should encourage healthy cell regeneration whilst providing daily protection against external aggressors.
Our genetic (intrinsic) ageing is predetermined but fortunately we do have some control over external factors or (extrinsic) ageing, such as that caused by sun damage or chemical irritants. Apparently, our skin’s production of skin firming collagen starts to slow down in our 20s, so it’s never too early (or late!) to invest in protecting your skin from those influences which accelerate the ageing process.
In other words, anti-ageing skin care is about taking good care of our largest organ and safeguarding it from premature ageing. Getting older is a fact of life – but looking it doesn’t have to be.
Anti-wrinkle creams may disguise wrinkles for a few hours with temporary tightening and optical blurring pigments without addressing the underlying condition. The best anti-aging cream takes a multi-faceted approach to enable the skin to achieve and maintain as youthful an appearance as possible. This involves protection against the known ageing effects of climate, pollution, irritation and inflammation as well as actively encouraging collagen synthesis, line reduction and improvement in skin tone and texture. Thanks to current research we know that Nature has the means to provide all this in spades and we harness those precious bio-active elements in our unique anti-ageing skincare!
We go beyond organic by selecting virgin plant oils and active extracts prepared with minimal processing and without heat to conserve their high levels of anti-oxidants and other vital nutrients so important in anti-ageing skin care.
Rose and Citrus Super Tonics As well as being intense skin hydrators and acid mantle balancers, both contain anti-oxidant vitamin C and polyphenols as well as the toning, calming and cell regenerating benefits of Rose. Choose according to skin type. Great for calming menopausal hot flushes too!
Timeless Rose Moisturiser Light, quickly absorbed and ideal for most skin types. Rose and aloe juice promote cell regeneration and are soothing, toning and calming, helping to combat the redness, inflammation and pigmentation now referred to as inflamm-aging. Vitamins A,C and E are powerful anti-oxidants which protect the skin against solar radiation and free radical generation, both of which accelerate collagen breakdown and wrinkle formation. Sea buckthorn fruit contains nature’s richest source of palmitoleic acid (omega 7), a natural skin component which declines as we age and is important for collagen synthesis and skin firmness.
Avocado 24hr Replenishing cream Also with anti-oxidant vitamins A, C and E it is ideal for dry, devitalised skin and as a night cream.
Superfruit Concentrate A powerpack of anti-oxidants which can be used alone as an instant vitality boost and daily anti-oxidant protection or over Timeless Rose Moisturiser to enhance skin hydration and anti-oxidant protection.
