MAINTAINING A YOUTHFUL GLOW
Thanks to Mother Nature, we have some of the best pro-ageing ingredients for those who prefer the natural path to beauty and a glowing complexion. All our formulas are rich in Vitamins, minerals and nutrients that have been developed to work with the skin.
In addition to maintenance of the skin, regular exercise, eating a well-balanced diet and drinking plenty of water are all important.
Developing regular skincare habits early on keep the complexion looking beautiful, balanced and vibrant. Book regular maintenance facials with your favourite OmVeda Therapist as both can help delay the need for artificial procedures later on.
investing in an effective range of products and practicing good skincare with a morning and night-time routine goes a long way in keeping our skin healthy and vibrant.
During the colder months we may want to add more nourishing elements to our everyday mix. At this time maybe switch to a creamier cleanser, more richly textured creams and add a facial oil to our routine for example.
Cleanse morning and night:
Takes care of debris, grime and make-up. Cleansing at night is particularly important as leaving make up on overnight can cause breakouts and dryness. Our Aloe Cleanser is perfect for dry skins and removing make up and it leaves the complexion hydrated and smooth. An effective cleanser for oily and combination types is our Cream Soap or Neem Facial Cleanser that respects the pH of the skin and does not leave behind a tight or uncomfortable feel. Sensitive and irritated skins, Sandalwood Cleanser.
To keep pores free of impurities and the skin bright and beautiful, exfoliation is a must. Once a week for drier complexions and twice per week for oilier types keeps dullness at bay, clears away dead skin build-up and also helps our products penetrate and work more effectively. Avoid aggressive exfoliators that can damage the skin. Dry skins love our Walnut or Gold Scrubs and, oiler skins can benefit from our Scrub Grains, neither of which contain microbeads.
Add a Mask:
As they’re the perfect add-on to our skincare routine and to address specific concerns … helping to hydrate or draw out impurities. For oilier skins, our clay-based Protex Mask is a great one to purify and another is our Fruit Mask which is loaded with Citrus and healing Zinc. Both can reduce visible and clogged pores and absorb excess oils. Now some news that you may not have known, our Masks also work to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin as they’re designed to be removed with a little water which is worked in circular motions. Afterwards the excess can then be rinsed away. For skins on the dry side, our Diamond Mask is rich in Fuller’s Earth and Diamond Ash to rejuvenate and renew.
Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise:
Applying a good day cream keeps the skin looking hydrated and dewy. A night cream is vital as, when we sleep, the body goes into repair mode. In turn our skin is more responsive and receptive to the active ingredients in our products, making it more conducive to rejuvenation.
When applying our day and night creams take a little extra time to gently massage into both face and neck as this will help keep the skin firm, lush and soft and, at the same time improve circulation and send nutrients deep within the cells. Our day and night creams are designed a little differently and are a little thicker in texture. To get the best from them, dot the face … cheeks, chin, neck and forehead, dampen fingertips and boost the massage in with Saffron Oil.
The eyes have it:
Squinting, smiling, sun damage and constant movement can cause finer lines and deeper wrinkles, not to mention dark circles. As the skin around the eyes is quite fragile it’s where issues first start to show. Everyday application of an Eye Cream is a beauty essential to keep the area smooth, hydrated and soft and, it can also help protect from further damage. As versatile as it is vital, our Eye Cream can also be applied to the lips and around the mouth.
Limit exposure to the sun (yes even during Winter):
Exposing our skin to UV rays can damage the collagen and elastin fibres and these fibres are the ones that keep our skin firm. UV rays can break down these fibres which leads to wrinkles and accelerates the ageing process. Get into the habit of protecting the skin with our natural protective bases like our Sandalwood Protective Base or Natural Sun Protection. Use a SPF on top for further protection if you are out in the sun for a long time. Of course, in high summer, wear a hat and take cover in the shade whenever possible.
