Top Tips for Glowing Skin
How to best achieve glowing, flawless skin? We asked the founder of the Organic Pharmacy, Margo Marrone for some tips.
You may think that ageing is inevitable and how you age is genetic. Science now shows that only 25% is down to genes and a whopping 75% is to do with lifestyle. Whilst none of us can stop ageing, we can use preventative measures to live healthier lives, look fantastic and feel amazing!
Wash your face
Avoid harsh detergents and foaming cleansers, and opt for an oil-based cleanser like our Carrot Butter Cleanser. It removes dirt, pollution and make-up in one easy step leaving skin fresh, clean and glowing.
Reset your skin with a mask
Removing dead skin from the face is key, as the moisturisers you apply afterwards will sink in quickly. Harsh scrubs can cause more irritation so it is sometimes difficult to know what to do. We recommend using our Enzyme Peel Mask, which exfoliates without irritation. This refreshing gel mask will transform your skin in just 10 minutes.
Toss harsh products
Be sure to shy away from harsh ingredients such as alcohol in your favourite toner. It dries-out and damages your skin, especially if your skin is exposed to the sun, and can irritate sensitive skin. Instead, use products that contain Aloe Water and Witch-hazel as an alternative, like our Herbal Toner, which revitalises, tones and hydrates the skin.
Age gracefully with antioxidants
As we get older, it’s normal for our skin to gradually lose its elasticity and thin out. Antioxidants are well known for their ability to protect your skin from damaging free radicals that age speed up in your body and skin. Start your anti-aging routine today with our Antioxidant Face Firming Serum and Gel and consider it “age prevention.”
Stay away from parabens
Use skin care products without parabens. These are the healthier choices for your skin: It’s been clearly proven that parabens cause skin irritation. Look for products that contain Sorbid Acid (found in our Antioxidant Face Cream), Sodium Benzoate or Dehydroacetic Acid (found in our Rose Diamond Face Cream) all from a natural source which protect the products but don’t damage your health.
Take care of your eyes and lips
The delicate lip and eye areas work hard and these areas are fragile, requiring extra care with effective, quality products. Try our Lip & Eye Cream, infused with Shea butter, bilberry, evening primrose, rose hip and frankincense to keep the eye and lip area plump, moist and to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Great skin comes from within - detoxification and nutrition is key
Toxins in the gut contribute to illness, accelerate aging and poor skin. Drink plenty of filtered water and eat a healthy diet with loads of fresh fruits and veggies. Cut sugars and carbs for a glowing complexion. To cleanse your gut of nasty toxins, try our 10 Day Detox Kit. Not only does it get rid of the toxins in the gut and the entire body, but also helps resolve malabsorption and maldigestion.
