Naturally ward off the wrinkles
As we get older, our skin loses two types of protein: collagen and elastin. These nutrients are the vital ingredients to keeping our skin young, smooth and wrinkle-free. Without turning to over-priced moisturisers or opting down the cosmetic surgery route, there are many natural ways that we can get back these nutrients, keeping our skin youthful and supple.
A good diet
We all know that takeaways and alcohol gave us spots when we were younger, but some would be surprised to know that the self-same things wreak havoc with our skin as we age. Drinking lots of water and eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables are wrinkle-free essentials. This doesn’t mean you have to cut out every treat, as long as the majority of what you put in is beneficial. Experts say that as long as you know that 80 per cent of the time you’re eating fresh, your skin will glow!
Having a vitamin-rich moisturiser
Many moisturisers claim to tackle wrinkles overnight, but the key to long-term success is knowing exactly what you’re putting on your face. Your moisturiser should be packed with vitamins A, C and E, sworn fighters of the wrinkle, keeping those unwanted lines at bay.
Lots and lots of sun-block
UV damage is the number one cause of visible aging – it breaks down all those vital nutrients our skin needs to stay supple. It’s really important to have a good sun-block on every day, even when we think we don’t need it. Look out for moisturisers with a built in SPF, that way we can’t forget!
We’ve all woken up from a broken nights sleep to the mirror greeting us with a face of puffiness and lines. The skin’s ability to retain water is enhanced by sleep, thereby keeping skin moisturised and supple.
Have you ever had someone ask you why you’re looking so cheerful, and for them to tell you it’s ‘written all over your face’? Well, it’s the same with wrinkles. The happier and more relaxed you are, the less likely wrinkles are to bother you. Plenty of laughs, sleep and exercise will guarantee this, and secure the brightness of your face!

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
