What is Ageing & What Does Anti-Ageing Skin Care Do?
Ageing can be broken down into either intrinsic or extrinsic ageing. Intrinsic ageing is the natural process the body undergoes, whereas extrinsic ageing is caused by external environmental factors such as sun damage. Intrinsic ageing is inevitable and best understood as a steady decline in collagen and elastin production; the qualities that give bounce to the skin. When the elastin fibres diminish—the structure of the skin—our complexion begins to sag, fold and eventually wrinkle. This happens as early as the age of 20. Simultaneously, the rate of exfoliation also goes downhill. Dead skin cells then clump and collect on the skin; giving the skin a lifeless veil. Flat, sunken and wrinkled skin is the end result.
Yet we can play our part consciously—and feed the skin with the most potent and pure vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants that anti-ageing skin care has to offer. We say: combat the signs of ageing and opt to fill your skin with pure and potent organic anti-ageing care products that give a bouncy, youthful glow.
How do we Restore Skin to Thrive?
Free radicals are infamous for wreaking havoc on our healthy skin cells. They are simply incomplete cells that further trigger damage to cells that surround it. This is unless an antioxidant is introduced to neutralise the chain reaction. Factors such as smog, smoke, sunlight, and stress are to blame and why we believe antioxidants are our hero! We naturally create both free radicals and antioxidants, in our bodies. Yet the ratio is often tipped in favour of free radicals. We know that what we take out, by way of lifestyle, we have to consciously give back. Applying antioxidants topically through nourishing anti-ageing skin care products—as well as taking them internally, by way of skin food supplements—is the key to vital health and glowing skin. Our star Noni Glow Skinfood is one of the most nutritious and delicious ways to feed your body, and your skin. It is anti-ageing skin care at its best. Giving thanks to powerful antioxidants such as Noni Extract, Acai, Blueberry and Matcha Green Tea!
What Anti-Ageing Skin Care Products Should I use?
Embracing a twice daily ritual of cleanse, mist, oil and moisturise is the first step to feed the skin the nourishing lipids it needs to blossom with fullness and bounce; the attributes skin naturally boasts when it is young. When choosing anti-ageing skin care, the KORA Organics 3 Step System for Dry Skin is most suited for this regime, as are Noni Glow Face Oil and Age-Defying Phytox™ Oil. Miranda likes to draw on the qualities of Noni Extract, as well as Rosehip, Sea Buckthorn and Pomegranate Oils for her nightly routine, so she wakes with the “Noni Glow”. The powerful duo of Age-Defying Phytox™ Oil and Age-Defying AHA Facial Exfoliator can be used in conjunction to aid in ridding the skin of its redundant cellular tissue for a fresher and softer texture. While its counterpart contains a rich source of anthocyanins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids—infused with natures elite: Acai, Rose Otto, Jasmine, Sandalwood and Frankincense—to aid in softening the look of fine lines and wrinkles. We also know the importance of a weekly skin ritual in the form of a mask to rejuvenate and replenish the skins moisture levels; and for this we hail Hydrating Mask for its calming and restorative nature.
Anti-Ageing Skin Care for the Body?
The skin on the body can often need the most TLC as it has been exposed to the sun, the longest. When it comes to choosing anti-ageing skin care products to nurture, replenish and repair—we call on the trilogy of Body Exfoliator, Noni Glow Body Oil and Essential Body Lotion to truly nourish. Although most would not place Gradual Self-Tanning Lotion in an anti-ageing skin care category, we do, as we believe prevention is better than cure! Adding a little colour to your skin, gradually and naturally, means you can lessen the need for harmful rays of the sun while glowing at the same time!
