The answer to any truthful response lies in a 360-degree approach to beauty. Because as much as we all want to believe there’s one silver bullet product that keeps us looking youthful and glowing with radiance, an inside-outside approach is the only way for true skin transformation to occur.
We’re here to lay down our top four tips for a holistic approach to enviable skin.
Suncare We bang on about this one a lot, but with good reason. The delicate ozone layer above the long white cloud that is Aotearoa doesn’t have our skin’s best interest at heart. For a sunscreen that can be worn everyday, we reach for Everyday Sun Fitness SPF 15+. And if 15 doesn’t sound enough, keep in mind it shields 94 percent of UV rays (only 4 percent of separation from the coverage you’re granted when reaching for a thicker SPF 50).
Skin serum Prevention really is the best medicine, but Joyce Blok’s Super Serum actually takes things one step further. Enriched with peptides, antioxidants and moisture enhancers, it helps reverse the effects of environmental damage and enhance the appearance of the skin. This paraben-free serum acts to repair, re-densify and rejuvenate, working to firm and smooth the face, neck and décolleté areas to reveal a more radiant complexion.
Internal supplements When it comes to skincare, it really is what’s on the inside that counts. We’re loving The Beauty Chef’s Collagen Inner Beauty Boost. A bio-fermented probiotic vegan collagen drink with vitamin C, which contributes to normal collagen formation, and zinc, which contributes to normal skin structure and the maintenance of healthy skin, hair and nails.
Facial massage Doing something to your skin every day makes a significant difference which is why we’re big advocates of facial massage at home in between treatments with your JB Expert. The biggest benefit of massaging your face daily is boosting blood circulation - when we do this, fresh oxygen and nutrients are brought to the surface of the skin, and toxins and waste eliminated. This leaves skin looking radiant, reduces puffiness and relieves tension.
Introduce these few simple changes to your routine and wait for the skin compliments to follow.
