There are certain signs of aging that can occur more quickly in the winter time, with the extra stress the skin has to endure due to the harsh weather and the drying effect of the extra heating in the house and car which can cause havoc to our skins. This happens more especially if you are like me and react with sensitivity when the skin dries out during the winter months.
We recommend to incorporate the use of one of our beauty balms chosen specifically to treat your exact skin type to bring the nutrients needed to the skin and keep the skin nourished throughout the toughest of the seasons.
Which Facial Balm should I choose?
Sensitive, dry, dehydrated skin:
Choose the Intensive Restoring Moisturising Facial Balm if you have a tendency to redness and sensitivity which if left untreated can cause extreme dehydration and dryness, which in turn can cause the formation of tiny fine lines, which don’t always stay fine in texture or depth. Left untreated the lines quickly become a permanent fixture which is a bigger problem and much harder to rectify.
Dull, lacklustre, tired or stressed skin:
If your skin tends to be dull looking and in need of a lift, or if you work in a stressful environment, choose the Vitality Super Vitamin Treatment Balm to brighten and boost the skin. This formula is the perfect solution for weathered complexions or skins suffering from environmental damage because it’s absolutely teeming with healthy nutrients that your skin craves. It’s chock-a-bloc with anti-oxidants and vitamins as the name suggests in the form of rosehip, gogi berry, green tea and watermelon and will bring a new-found radiance to your complexion together with increasing the firmness of the skin.
Age Corrective Anti-Ageing Facial Balm:
The choice of a facial balm is certainly an easy choice of you are over the age of 45 and looking for a formula with an extra dose of prevention as well as the best possible option to anti-ageing in every way. The Age Corrective Anti-Ageing Facial Balm is more than just nutrition for the skin, it is filled with vitamin rich potent anti-aging oils and butters such as argan and rosehip to deeply moisturise and help repair damaged skin tissue together with Co Q10, Vitamin A and Vitamin E to help stimulate cell growth to visibly firm and smooth the skin. The anti-oxidant rich formula of herbs and botanicals such as amla berry and carrot seed stimulate the production of collagen, improve the appearance of pigmentation and reduces the depth of wrinkles. Gently massage the balm into the skin daily to stock up on these moisture binding ingredients to brighten, firm up and leave the skin soft and smooth.
Of course, all of our balms are 100% natural and are completely free from preservatives and artificial fragrances which makes them ideal for use on skin prone to sensitivity, redness or allergies. Yes, the balms smell gorgeous and although we are often told how amazing our balms smell, we use a blend of essential oils never to add fragrance but always for their therapeutic properties.
Essential oils of chamomile, lavender and rose have a healing and calming effect in the Intensive Restoring Balm. Sandalwood, ylang ylang, rose and mandarin have a stimulating effect to help brighten in the Vitality range and neroli, rose and frankincense have a regenerating effect for those of you looking for anti-wrinkle in the Age Corrective range.
How to use Facial Balms:
Apply a small amount of facial balm on cleansed skin after your facial serum and before your moisturiser twice daily to get the maximum benefit. Regularity is the key to maintaining skin health during the winter months.
