Gone are the days when skincare was just about cleansing, toning and moisturising. Now we are expected to use a plethora of cosmetic products to keep ourselves looking young and beautiful. There are day moisturisers, night moisturisers, intensive moisturisers; anti-aging serums, perfecting serums, wrinkle-smoothing serums; boosters, buffers and brighteners; concentrates and complexes … and that’s just the start. Make-up has got so complicated that you need a Masters degree to understand it!
Don’t you wish you could return to a simpler time where less was expected of women who want to keep themselves looking beautiful, but still have the fresh, smooth face you’ve been working so hard to achieve? If so, read on! Follow these few simple steps and you will save yourself time and money, and get brilliant results too.
First of all, are you drinking enough water? And I do mean water rather than juice, tea, milk or anything else. Experts recommend that we drink 8-10 glasses a day. The human body is made of more than 60% water, and if you’re not drinking enough your skin will dry out, making wrinkles develop more quickly in the longer term, and become more visible in the shorter term.
Secondly, are you sensible in the sun? Avoid excessive sun exposure, make sure you use a moisturiser of at least SPF 15 all year round, and supplement it with something stronger on sunny days, especially if you have fair skin. Wear sunglasses to protect the delicate area around the eyes: this is where wrinkles tend to turn up first and become most pronounced. Consider keeping covered on the hottest days: choose a hat that shades your sensitive facial skin, and a pale coloured cotton or linen long-sleeved top which will help protect your skin from sun damage, and make you feel less hot too.
Thirdly, think about your diet. Make sure you eat plenty of fruit and vegetables as that’s by far the best way of getting the right balance of vitamins and minerals, but consider taking a supplement too. The B vitamins are particularly important for maintaining healthy, beautiful skin: milk, and green leafy vegetables are great sources of vitamin B2, a deficiency of which can make your skin dry, cracked and itchy; fish, bananas and wholegrains contain a lot of vitamin B6, which helps prevent skin conditions.
Take care of yourself from the inside, and you will have no need to buy ever fancier cosmetic products, and will be able to go make-up free whenever you want to.
It’s this philosophy of encouraging the body’s natural way of staying young that lies behind Kollagen Intensiv: not just another anti-aging cream, but a revolutionary new way to stimulate the natural production of collagen, boost your natural moisturising factors and work on every layer of the skin to keep it young and beautiful. Collagen is what makes your skin naturally flexible, and it is a lack of collagen that causes wrinkles.
Kollagen Intensiv should be used as a daily moisturiser, and to replace serums, boosters and other cosmetic products. One simple, natural, clinically proven way of reducing wrinkles which, along with a good diet, plenty of water and sensible suncare will restore your youthful appearance.
