Turning Back The Clock for Age Defiant Skin
Turning Back The Clock for Age Defiant Skin

Beauty sleep is scientifically recognised as a key agent in the fight against ageing and disease. Our stressful modern lifestyles that require us to juggle hectic work schedules, busy social lives and frequent travel can cause our skin to become tired, lack lustre and dull. Implementing a multi-step skincare routine and getting enough sleep each night is the key to turning back the clock and combatting the effects of a stressful schedule.

A lack of sleep can result in many unwanted skin problems from dark under eye circles and morning puffiness, to premature skin aging and uneven skin tone. Combining your skincare routine with plenty of sleep will ensure it is most effective.

Your skin does most of its healing while you sleep, it is when DNA repair, cell proliferation, moisture loss and barrier penetration reach their peak activity. However, due to hectic schedules many of us do not get the 7-9 hours of sleep recommended for adults each night.

During the day pollutants and irritants build up on the skin’s surface leading to accelerated skin damage, inflammation and aging. Before you go to sleep each night it is vital to effectively cleanse away these impurities to help your skin regenerate overnight and prepare it for the delivery of additional intelligent ingredients.

We use our Ecdysis Bio-Ferment Enzyme Cleanse, a luxurious cream cleanser formulated with fruit derived AHAs and super fruit enzymes to deeply cleanse the pores. This cleanser also gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells and other impurities that build up on the skin’s surface throughout the day for a more refined, youthful and ageless appearance.

Certain high-potency intelligent ingredients, such as Vitamin A (retinol) can actually speed up your skin’s cellular turnover and increase collagen production. Our Elemental A + C + E Serum contains retinol, along with other powerful antioxidant allies of Vitamins C and E to brighten skin and promote collagen. These key ingredients work in synergy to neutralise free radicals, one of the biggest modern contributors to skin damage.

Working with your skin’s natural healing processes and harnessing the power of intelligent ingredients is your best defence against the effects of skin aging, helping you to turn back the clock and take years off your face.

Our lifestyles habits can often leave the skin feeling dry, tired and inflamed. The skin’s moisture loss increases during the night. By utilising our Green Tea + Ginseng Facial Oil you can increase the skin’s barrier to reduce transepidermal water loss and lock in all of the benefits of your active Elemental A+C+E Serum and further hydrate and rejuvenate tired, damaged and sensitive skin. This moisturising oil, suitable for all skin types harnesses the power of green tea and white tea antioxidants to reduce free radical damage, calm inflammation and improve circulation. Use a few drops alone or mixed into a moisturiser, such as our Metamorphis Multi-Vitamin Cream for increased hydration and moisture.

Combining the intelligent ingredients in your skincare routine with plenty of beauty sleep is your skin’s best defence against the effects of a stressful lifestyle and busy schedule. Remember, consistency is key for achieving best results!
