I don't know about you, but ageing does get to me some days. As much as I'd like to age gracefully, I still want to do what I can to look good and keep my skin looking it's best. This is why I decided to share 5 of my top tips with you, so you too can benefit.
Glow is the Essence of Beauty
One thing I would like to you remember is that beauty comes from within. We must embrace ourselves, and our beauty will shine though. And, we can help ourselves along the way with these 5 beauty tips.
Beauty Tip No 1
Cleanse, Tone, Exfoliate, Moisturise - Yes this is important if you want to maintain the skins natural defence barrier and keep it looking nicely hydrated, supple and glowing. You will want to be doing this both in the morning and before bed. It's good practice to remove your makeup before bedtime.
Step 1 - CLEANSE using one of the recommended cleansers below. Double #cleanse the face, ensuring all traces of makeup and dirt are removed. Even if you don't wear makeup, a gentle double cleanse will help to keep the pores free of environmental congestion. I recommend our Intelligent Nutrients cleansers they are #organic, gentle, hydrating, effective and they contain plant stem cells:

IN - Nourishing Cleansing Creme
IN - Purifying Cleansing Gel
Step 2 - EXFOLIATE the skin to remove dead skin cells to keep the skin looking bright, and to even out the texture in the skin. #Exfoliation helps to keep the pores clean, but too much can make the skin reactive, so make sure you choose one like our Intelligent Nutrients refining micro polish, with #Jajoba beads, it contains plant stem cells to help calm the skin, reduce redness, and even doubles up as a deep hydrating mask. What more could you ask for in an exfoliator!

STEP 3 - #TONE the skin, it's especially essential for skin that is needy, or those suffering from insomnia, jet lag, or seasonal changes that will affect the skin. It's extremely refreshing, it will help to bring new life to your face makeup, furthermore, it will feed your skin with hydration and help push your moisturising products in to the skin after you have #cleansed and exfoliated.

Step 4 - TREAT the skin, particularly if you are over 40, with a #serum and eye gel. Serums will work at a cellular level, increasing cell turnover, diffusing dark spots, and supporting #regeneration. Serums also reduce #wrinkles and #smooth the skin. You can see how important this step is. Deeply hydrating in winter, and light in summer, our serums work instinctively and align with the body's sebum. This is your last step prior to moisturising.
Treat your eye are with our #Renewal Complex Eye Gel, for a reduction in puffy eyes, fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, and to hydrate the very delicate skin around the eye. Your eyes will feel refreshed and more awake. Use day and night for the best results.

Step 5 - #MOISTURISE is your final step in your facial routine at home. This may sound like a lot to do, but you know, it takes me 5 minutes. #Hydration helps the skin to remain balanced, supple, it helps improves #skin elasticity and tone. Our moisturisers contain strong anti-oxidants to hydrate, and rebuild.

Beauty Tip No 2
WATER - Yes this is essential for keeping the skin supple and youthful, as well as your body. Aim for 2 litres of water a day, more if you are exercising. This will help to flush out the toxins, keep our bowls moving, and being properly hydrated will give your skin a healthy glow.
Dehydration causes the skin to become stressed, and tired looking, inducing more fine lines and wrinkles. The body's tissues and skin cells need replenishing, staying hydrated and it will keep you looking more youthful.
Beauty Tip No 3
LIMIT ALCOHOL AND CAFFEINE - In moderation alcohol can have some health benefits, but too much alcohol and caffeine can have a negative impact on your health and your appearance.
By over-indulging you are depleting your body of vital nutrients. Your skin will start to look red and flushed, and will result in spider veins, which is a sure way to age prematurely. Remember, everything in moderation.
Beauty Tip No 4
EXERCISE - If you want to slow ageing by nearly a decade, then get active daily, and do some high intensity interval training, this will really boost you at your cellular level. Exercise increases blood flow around the body, moving oxygen and vital nutrients around the body, feeding them for health and vitality.
Beauty Tip No 5
THINK ABOUT AN AESTHETIC PROCEDURE - As much as we try to do our best on the inside, we may need a little extra help on the outside. There are many more natural alternatives to botox and cosmetic surgery these days.
CACI non-surgical facelift is great natural alternative treatment for keeping the muscles of the face nicely toned, and the skin repaired. Think of it as a monthly work out for the face and neck. To start you have a course of treatments over a short time period of 5 weeks, after which you move to monthly maintenance. It's like going to the gym, you need to maintain the placement of the muscles.
Collagen Induction Therapy or micro needling, is a small course of treatments, that work by means of a roller with hundreds fo tiny needles that puncture the skin. This will work at a cellular level by encouraging the collagen back up to the skin's surface, helping to improve fine lines and wrinkles, and scars.
#FIBROBLAST #PLASMA THEREAPY is a lower cost alternative to #surgery with surgery like results. The hot current from the plasma device is targeted very close to the skin, to create tiny holes or micro-injuries in the skin.
#Fibroblast will help to tighten skin, and improve skin texture, namely around the eyelids, under eyes, and the targeted, ageing areas of the face and neck. Downtime is around 1 week.
