1, 2, 3 GLOW!

Kim Maes

Just a few days I ago I saw the most beautiful woman ever. She was 76, very confident and glowing. She smiled so I took my chance and asked her about her beauty secret. Her answer was: Brains! She said if you use your brains right, you just know you have to drink water, eat healthy and take your make-up off EVERY night. If you listen really carefully your brain will tell you to not use crap on your face and invest in clean beauty products instead of buying that new bag. Or she said, have a carreer, and you can buy both!

How to:

1. Take it all off.

This step is the linchpin of the entire thing, and it takes about a minute, for most people. Exfoliating your skin leaves it glowing and smooth to begin with; it also leaves it ready to better absorb treatment ingredients. Dermatologists have been returning in droves to the simplicity and safety of the chemical peel, as they exfoliate evenly—as opposed to physical scrubs, which, can tear at skin. The same is true for at-home peels and exfoliants: the best are powerful and gentle at the same time. The Susanne Kaufmann Enzymepeel is designed to sweep away every last dead skin cell and is especially suitable for thin, sensitive skin. Mild fruit acids from kiwis, apples and papayas remove dead skin without abrasives that can stress the epidermis. The even, thorough exfoliation means that whatever you put on next is going to sink in much deeper, so it’ll be that much more powerful on skin. If you have an other 10 minutes left, try the Hydra Repair Cream Masque. Allow the mask to work for 10 minutes and then remove with lukewarm water. Finish with your day- or night cream and your skin (and your mirror) will thank you for it.



An overnight serum is going to help speed up cell turnover. VERSO super facial serum which has Retinol 8 in it, 8 times more effective than standard Retinol, is anti-aging skincare next level! On top of that you can use Grown Alchemist's Regenerating Night cream that has Hyaloronic Acids and Antioxidants in it. This will restore your skin elasticity and will noticeable reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.



And if you are, start with EVOLVE Miracle Facial Oil. 

This nourishing yet light facial oil contains natural retinol from Organic Rosehip and antioxidants from Organic Argan oil to regenerate and revitalise mature and dry skin. Organic Blackseed oil nourishes and reduces any signs of irritation. 

ROSEHIP OIL - Rosehip oil is rich in essential fatty acids omega-6 and omega-3. The oil helps to fight signs of ageing and keeps the skin nourished and hydrated. It is rich in bio-retinol and helps promote cellular renewal and improves the appearance of scars.
