Your natural daily face care routine for older skin
More than any other part of your body, your face is the part that needs the most TLC. Not only is it the most sensitive bit of yourself, it’s also the piece that let’s you smile, cry, laugh and show everyone around you how you are feeling. As we get older, the elasticity in our skin goes a little – allowing wrinkles to form and our skin to loosen. This is especially noticeable in the face – and exactly why we need to give an older visage extra special attention, treating it to a natural but simple care routine every day.
Wipe it off
Before we wash our face, it’s important to get rid of any specs of make up that might be left. Make up clogs the pores, which cause blemishes. For an ageless reflection, use a facial tonic cleanser. In just one step, make-up and all traces of pollution are removed, leaving the skin clean and radiant. As opposed to a make up wipe, using a cleanser provides the skin with long-lasting hydration and an extra metabolism boost.
Wash away those wrinkles
When all traces of make up are removed, using an age-sensitive facial wash is essential. Look out for face washes that include argan oil, as this component is believed to prohibit any naturally protective oils from being stripped from the face. Argan oil is also renowned for its high content of vitamin A, E, and essential fatty oils – great for keeping the skin young and plump.
The key ingredients in your moisturiser should be our familiar friends – vitamin A, E and argan oil. These vital components are thought to stimulate cell renewal – repairing any premature lines that may have formed. Aloe vera and algin are also great for a timeless face, as they are thought to provide moisturising qualities which can stabilize the skin's hydration levels. This could increase skin thickness and elasticity. Apply once in the morning and once at night, ideally when the skin is slightly damp, for an extra youthful complexion.

- 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
