How to Target Wrinkles Using Natural Skincare
Have you been looking in the mirror and wondering what you can do to reverse the signs of ageing? Are you noticing fine lines appearing more often than you would like or perhaps you think it’s time to zap those wrinkles! The best way to target lines is by using all-natural skin products.
If you’re lucky enough to have line-free skin you know what you are doing is right but it’s always useful to know about the benefits of natural skincare. We all already know great skin is a combination of what’s in your gene pool, using quality skincare, having a good skincare routine and taking care to protect your skin sufficiently from harmful elements such as the sun. At Naturology, if we were to give women our best advice it would be to start looking after skin as young as possible because once you are in a good skincare routine your will reap the benefits later in life. Cleanse, tone, moisturise and always using natural skincare products. That means free from nasty chemicals (such as parabens or phthalates), colourings and other preservatives. Women should always be kind to their skin because it has to last a very long time.
Tips To Prevent Premature Ageing
- Never sleep in your make-up! It clogs pores, dries skin and makes lines appear deeper than they are the next day.
- Get a good night sleep, at least 7 hours so skin can replenish lost moisture and the body can refresh itself overnight.
- Always use night cream, while your body is working hard to replenish lost moisture and tighten up facial muscles give it a helping hand with a natural ingredient night moisturiser.
- Use sunscreen (see below)
Change Your Products!
Once you have an established routine for your skin, it becomes second nature but it’s vital you update your products regularly as a moisturiser you’ve used since your twenties won’t work for you if you’re in your late thirties. As you reach your forties lines will be more noticeable and it’s great to have some crinkles round your eyes as you smile and laugh – lines give character to a face. They are so much more attractive than a face with far too much Botox or filler, a face that has no expression and looks unnaturally younger than the rest of its body! We still don’t know the effects of Botox and the different fillers on the market. However, sensible thinkers know injecting substances into the skin such as botulism cannot be beneficial – naturally young-looking skin is something that you earn and you can achieve it.
Sun-Sense & Line Prevention
There’s no excuse - always use a good sunscreen or choose a moisturiser/serum with UV protection to prevent harmful penetration of the sun’s rays. We know the sun causes ageing. The Daily Mail reported on a study in the medical journal Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology which found that UV rays accounted for 80% of skin ageing including wrinkles. So as the song tells us, Always Use Sunscreen! Follow up after a light sunscreen with a good, deep moisturiser such as our very own Stem Cell Active Youth Moisturiser. There’s a reason it’s packed full of organic ingredients and a combination of vitamin C, E and B5, it is full of antioxidants to defend the skin against free radicals. You won’t find parabens, sulphate or phthalates in our moisturiser! To combat ageing, this unique formula also contains marine collagen extract and Hibiscus – otherwise known as the Botox plant giving skin a NATURAL lifting boost and diminishing fine lines. This is a superb prelude to make up and your complexion will look dewy and refreshed, lines reduced with continued use and certainly not frozen!
At night, give your skin everything it needs to fight ageing with Age Reform Night Cream. It contains replenishing Vitamin C to help boost lost collagen and reduce dryness. It also has Argireline an ingredient targeting wrinkles (let’s call it natural Botox) and apricot which revitalises, nourishes and softens. These are just some of the incredible tried and tested ingredients in our Age Reform Night Cream – we urge you to try it because you’ll wake up with beautiful skin.
Get Serious With Serum
Take your anti-ageing care one step further with our Naturology Age Defying Vitamin C serum. This is an unbelievably brilliant product which you use underneath moisturiser or before your night cream. Try it; you will notice visibly improved skin. This serum hydrates deep beneath the dermis, soothing tired, lacklustre looking skin and repairing as it calms. Additionally, it’s a great protector from UV rays and minimises fine lines and wrinkles.
If eyes are your problem area, we have our excellent Pro Age Eye Gel superb if you suffer from dark circles and bags. Often the appearance of shadow and puffiness under the eyes makes women look older than they are. Using the Pro Age Eye Gel significantly helps this with continued use and sooths aggravated skin too.
Avoiding Nasty Chemicals
Naturology uses plenty of natural ingredients extracting many benefits found in plants, fruit, and marine life. You should never use anything with sulphate, parabens or phthalates as these interfere with your body’s hormones. Always check the ingredients of what you’re buying.
You Are What You Eat
Skin is also about what you eat – plenty of green vegetables and fruit rich in vitamin C, K and natural minerals helps to keep skin looking and feeling great. Drink 2 litres of water a day (no need to drink more than that) to cleanse the body and start the day with a hot water and slice of lemon. Remember, what you put into your body will tell on your skin so eating well and nourishing skin with kind products will make a dramatic difference.
Put our advice to the test – spend a month eating good quality organic produce, a diet rich in green vegetables and fruit. Drink water and use Naturology anti-ageing skincare, we are sure you will reduce your skin age appearance by 5 to 10 years!
