How to keep your skin looking young at every age, Nimue, SKN-RG Organic
Collagen is a protein produced by our cells that helps “hold” the skin together, giving it firmness and elasticity. When we’re young, our skin stays plump and smooth because it constantly regenerates itself. But as we age, collagen production slows – and existing collagen can get damaged due to sun exposure and bad skin habits. The results? Wrinkles and sagging skin going south.
Luckily, there’s lots you can do to preserve your collagen and even boost its production.
Exfoliate your skin
Exfoliation means removing the top, dead layer of skin that helps speed up the natural process of skin and collagen renewal.
My favourite way to exfoliate is with Nimue Exfoliating enzyme with glycolic acid that helps to refines skin texture and cell renewal. They dissolve the glue-like substance that bonds dead skin to the surface leaving the skin looking healthier and more radiant.
An organic alternative is SKN-RG super rich exfoliant with micro-fine jojoba pearls that provide effective exfoliation without irritating skin, whilst antioxidant rich sea buckthorn and manuka honey deliver powerful anti-ageing nutrients, leaving skin soft and beautifully youthful.
Add antioxidants to your skincare regime
Antioxidants help protect against free radicals that can cause ageing skin.
Free radicals attach themselves to healthy skin cells and basically suck out the electrons they need, leaving healthy skin cells damaged. This process triggers an enzyme in the skin that breaks down collagen. Antioxidants help protect against free radicals that can cause ageing skin.
Look for creams and serums containing antioxidants complex: such as Nimue Multi day Plus, Nimue Multi rejuvenating Serum, Nimue Alpha Lipoic Activator, Nimue Skin Refirmer (your Botox alternative), Nimue rejuvenating mask.
Don’t forget to wash your face before you go to sleep
A British Skin Foundation survey published in January 2010 found that an astonishing 50 per cent of people who wear make up in the UK are damaging their skin by not removing make up before they go to bed.
Just because you’re exhausted doesn’t mean you get a free pass because neglecting to cleanse your skin leads to an oily and dirty skin, which causes breakouts, dull and ageing skin. Makeup doesn’t allow your skin to breathe and can clog your pores, resulting in acne.
Remember to use Nimue cleasing gel and conditioner to have super clean and glow skin in the morning and for all day!
An excellent Organic alternative is SKN-RG rich cleanser which contains micro-nutrients including minerals, vitamins and omegas including omega-3, 6 and 9.
You don’t wear sunscreen
Here’s the truth: If you’re using the wrong sunscreen, it might clog your pores and brew blemishes. However, Nimue SPF 40 has a winning combination that will keep your skin clear and protected from the sun’s harsh rays, which breaks down collagen and elastin, causing fine lines and wrinkles, and can also lead to sun spots later on in life if you don’t prevent them with SPF early on.
For healthy skin: apply moisturizer every day
Moisturizing is important because it protects the skin from the weather and from drying up and looking dull. It helps your skin maintain its natural moisture levels too, because it seals in the water already in the skin or slowly release water into the skin.
If you have dry skin avoid alcohol-based products and if you have oily skin avoid oil-based products (use water-based instead). The best products in the market are: Nimue Moisturizer plus, Nimue day and Nimue super hydrating Mask.
Organic best product is SKN-RG Cellular Repair moisturiser Enriched with Eco Certified Non Animal Hyaluronic Acid to surge moisture deep into skin cells to leave skin plumped up and full of life
