Our skin go through multiple changes throughout our lives; two of the most drastic phases are during the teen hormone raging puberty and premature ageing.
Some of us are not so blessed during our teenage days as we battled with breakouts. Read our previous blog https://keworganics.com/from-the-blogs/how-to-lighten-acne-marks-scars/ to find out how to lighten acne marks and scars from post-acne.
Ageing is inevitable, looking our age is optional. We can’t stop ageing, however, we can delay it with precious organic and active botanical ingredients which enhance our skin’s performance so our skin age can look younger than our biological age. Read on to find out which magical products can keep ageing at bay.
- Focus on exfoliation
Our skin naturally regenerates itself every 28-40 days. Its natural ability to shed old skin cells slows down as we age. Over time, this leads to rough, dull, uneven, flaky and patchy skin.
Awarded as the ‘Best Eco-Friendly Exfoliant’ by Harper’s Bazaar, use Kew Organics Sugar Cane Royal Flush Exfoliant on our face, under-eye and crow feet area to exfoliate, reduce fine lines and firm our skin for a youthful complexion and bright, sparkling eyes.
It also helps to increase the absorption of the rest of our skincare ritual by removing the excessive layers of dead cells which act as a barrier between the products and our real skin. This maximises the delivery of active botanical ingredients and essential nutrients to the deeper layers of our skin to reverse ageing.
This unique formula is a no-rinse and leave-on treatment optimised to work all night and penetrate deep into our skin layers to break down the “glue” aka glycocalyx. Exfoliate to unveil fresh and young layers of new skin to deliver radiance, lighten pigmentation and minimise pore size. It not only helps to shed off our excessive dead skin cells, but also renews our skin cells on a cellular level and stimulates collagen production. Therefore, it strengthens our skin immunity and increases elastin to diminish wrinkles; delivering a more youthful look.
2. Game-up with an essence
The essence is an essential skincare step as our skin acts like a sponge, it is more absorbent when it is slightly moist. Therefore, it helps to prep our skin for better absorption for the rest of our skincare and boosts their efficacy.
With over 90% of certified organic ingredients, Clear Skin Treatment Essence not only primes and adds hydration to our skin, it is also packed with high concentrations of antioxidants and active botanical ingredients to feed our skin cells with essential nutrients on a cellular level.
Organic Rose is great for anti-ageing as it is packed with Vitamin A, C, D and E to reduce fine lines, plump and firm the skin by increasing collagen production. Also, with Gotu Kola, it can firm and tighten our skin as it is rich in amino acids and fatty acids to stimulate new cell growth and build collagen. It is a skin booster to rejuvenate and hydrate to deliver dewy skin and natural radiance without makeup.
3. Hydrate and hydrate
Hydration is key! While we attempt to slather on thick layers of heavy creams and oil to moisturise our skin, we often neglect to hydrate. We need to replenish the skin with water-based products as dehydrated skin will lead to premature ageing.
Enriched with 100% organic chamomile water, Elixir Hydrating Concentrate Serum by its name screams magical potion and ultra-hydrating elements. It restores the skin’s water level with organic plant-based stem cell therapy, strengthens the natural regenerative power and accelerates cell renewal. Reduce fine lines to deliver firmer, smoother and finer skin.
Megaboost Hyaluronic+Concentrate Serum contains hyaluronic acid to attract and bind water molecules to our skin cells. This water-loving ingredient is a humectant which acts as a magnet to retain and lock in water, leaving our skin looking plumped and bouncy. Yes, well-hydrated skin increases our skin’s elasticity to be more supple, firm and taut.
4. Powered by antioxidants
Just like our diet needs a mix of healthy wholesome food to receive all the nutrients that our body needs, so does our skin. Our skin is the largest organ, feed it with yummy vitamins and antioxidants for a healthy and youthful complexion. Therefore, the more we apply, the better it is for our skin.
A revolution in anti-ageing treatments, Apple Stem Vitaglow Creme contains apple stem cells which can boost cell production of human stem cells by a staggering 80%. It also protects our skin from the harmful effects of the UV rays, effectively restores the potential of skin stem cells, eliminates wrinkles and fine lines for youthful-looking skin. In addition, it acts as a catalyst to escalate collagen production, reduce visible signs of ageing and revitalize dull-looking skin.
Made with 17 organic flowers and plant extracts, Cell Regeneration Facial Oil Serum is a youth preservation serum which provides your daily dose of natural Vitamins A, B, C, E, & K. It contains camellia oil, an anti-ageing elixir filled with antioxidants and omega fatty acids to plump our skin cells, erase fine lines, prevent wrinkles and firms our skin. Add 2 to 3 drops into our serum for a healthy glow from within and achieve a luminous complexion.
5. Prevent premature lines & wrinkles on our eye area
The first signs of ageing appear around our eye area as it is more delicate and thin. Hence, it is important to use products that are specially made for our eyes to prevent and delay our crow’s feet.
Use skin treatment essence for our face and this eye essence is specially made for our eyes. Total Restorative Eye Essence is ultra-lightweight and deeply hydrating at the same time. Forget about morning coffee, this refreshing and cooling gel-like texture helps to reduce water retention, puffiness and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles. Wake up dull and tired-looking eyes to look fresh and young instantly.
Thick and oily eye creams may sometimes lead to milia seeds under our eyes which are difficult to remove. Our Cacao Okra Age Defying Eye Serum is nourishing, yet does not feel heavy on our skin. It is velvety soft which spreads on easily and does not clog our pores. Formulated with shea butter and sunflower oil, it has great moisturising properties which help to increase our skin’s elasticity for firmer and lifted eyes. On the other hand, cacao increases blood circulation and provides oxygen flow to our skin cells; leaving our eyes looking sparkling and gorgeous.
6. Not forgetting our neck
The skin on our neck can betray our age! We put in a lot of time and effort to prevent ageing on our face, however, we have a wrinkled and blotchy neckline. Our neck starts to show ageing before our face as it is thinner, drier and does not have much sebaceous glands to produce sebum. Therefore, start taking care of our neck before it is too late.
Worry no more! Get a non-surgical neck lift with Q10 Pomegranate Line-Reducing Serum. Formulated with Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids provide essential nutrients that improve firmness and elasticity. Increase collagen production while it minimises visible signs of ageing with CoEnzyme Q10, peptides and pomegranate. Achieve a youthful and beautiful neckline.
Prevention is always better than cure. Start incorporating anti-ageing products with antioxidants and active ingredients as early as 21. However, remember to choose a product with formula and consistency that is appropriate for different skin types. Oily and acne-prone skin must avoid rich and thick creams as it causes clogged pores, breakouts and congestion. Hence, use anti-ageing products that are light-weight and focus on hydration instead of moisturisation. On the other hand, dry skin is more prone to premature ageing due to the lack of oil. Hence, use a more intensive and nourishing formula with fatty acids and lipids to replenish our skin’s moisture.
Beauty is from the inside out. Always remember to get good quality sleep, eat a healthy and balanced diet, stay physically active, exercise regularly and always stay well-hydrated. Also, don’t forget to reduce stress because “me time” matters. Take some time off and pamper with heavenly facials to unwind and recharge.
