After the summer season,
I always recommend having an anti-oxidant-rich facial to help your skin repair itself from the extra UV exposure built up over the summer months.
Increased exposure to UV light (it doesn’t have to be hot, or even warm, just not dark 😂) speeds up the rate at which collagen fibres are broken down in the skin structure.
Decreased collagen leads to the visible signs of ageing that we all want to delay as long as possible – wrinkles, lines, increased pigmentation, bumpy texture and enlarged pores.
Luckily, anti-oxidants are Mother Nature’s antidote to decreasing collagen quality. Our bodies already produce our own anti-oxidants at cellular level to repair damage to our cells but, like everything, the availability of these natural resources slows down as we age.
Supplementing your intrinsic supply of anti-oxidants with your daily skincare will keep things ticking over nicely for you, and adding a deep boosting anti-oxidant repair facial when necessary will recharge your skin’s ability to battle UV-induced damage.
(Skin Essentials homecare products are ALL high in anti-oxidants. Specifically for anti-ageing and tackling UV ageing, use Hydra Collagen Serum daily under SPF30 and Lipid Repair Concentrate at night).
Even if you use SPF daily and liberally, your cells will still experience a surge of UV induced oxidation just from the longer hours of daylight.
