As we head into winter most of our focus moves upwards towards our faces and away from our exposed bodies! With a sigh of relief we can hide a multitude of sins with warm baggy winter woollies (the over -sized jumper is very ‘in’ this winter you will be please to know)!
For this reason we have decided to focus our special around boosting and plumping those deeper layers of the skin so that the’ bits’ that stick out of our warm winter woollies can look their best.
Many product houses believe the only way to plump the skin is with animal or marine collagen. As you well know we have proved them wrong! Our collagen products are plant (acacia) and mineral (hematite) based and can rival any other animal or marine collagen.
FOR THE MONTH OF MAY ONLY:
If you would like to spoil yourself and/or a loved one this Mother’s Day – ask to have your collagen product gift-wrapped by us… free of charge.
So why as we age does the word ‘collagen’ prick up our ears?
Collagen is a fibrous protein in the dermis that gives structure to the skin and provides the foundation for the retention of elastin and hyaluronic acid. Elastin is an elastic protein that helps maintain shape, while hyaluronic acid cushions and lubricates to keep the skin moist. More collagen enables the presence of more elastin and hyaluronic acid.
With age and environmental damage, collagen is lost, and as time goes on, the body’s natural production decreases. The damage to the underlying structure of the skin reduces the skin’s ability to maintain elasticity and retain moisture.
The beginning of winter is a perfect time to treat yourself to a Rich Regenerating Elixir facial before the cold weather sets in. Hydration is the key to reverse ageing. Ask your salon for details of this facial.
Stay warm and remember to spoil yourselves.
