The change of seasons always bring a time of renewal and regeneration. Weather changes, nature goes through its cyclical pattern and we ready ourselves for different routines, habits and undertakings. When it comes to our skin, as seasons change, our skin must adapt as well. Some months it may need more nurturing and hydration, other months more protection against the external factors that life throws at us, such as UV rays and pollution.
At the moment, the act of regeneration – from skin to nature – is something that has piqued our interest and commands our attention, especially when it comes to skincare. Like most things, throughout your life, your skin will change – sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. The skin’s regenerative process happens (or shall we say, renews) every 27-35 days – depending on your age. The good news is: yes, even your skin is embracing change and constantly evolving. The not so good news, as we age this renewal process slows down and can result in dull, sluggish looking skin. But here at Romilly Wilde we believe in truly embracing the process of regeneration as an organic part of life and doing everything in our power to increase this process of renewal.
In order to aid the skin and its regenerative process, it’s important to prioritize skin health through a clean lifestyle, a luxuriously clean skincare line that enhances our skin’s true glow and a routine that endorses health, performance and protection.
So, here are our top tips to aid skin regeneration:
Invest in quality clean skincare with a focus on skin health and renewal – there is no use caring for your skin with inferior products that use fillers and toxic chemicals. Prioritising skin health means using products with quality ingredients that enable the skin to flourish and perform.
Double cleanse with an organic muslin. There is nothing that will help aid skin cell renewal and rid the top layer of dead skin cells (stratum corneum) than a thorough cleanse with gentle exfoliation. Double cleansing is also a great combatant against the effects of pollution.
Hydrate – hydration starts from the inside out, so fill up your water bottle and remember to stay hydrated as well as invest in a quality, enriching night oil or cream. During the colder months it is all about creating a barrier to the external elements and locking hydration in.
Face massage – invest in a pure, quality oil and help the skin cells turnover by getting into a short face massage routine at home. Face massage also increases collagen (that ever popular buzzword found in your dermis that gives the skin that bounce and sadly we lose as we age!).
Use SPF – Protection is key in preventing future damage from external forces such as UVA/UVB rays.
Eat a clean diet rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants – such vitamins as A and C can promote skin healing and create new skin proteins
So as we move into a new season, make skin regeneration a priority and give your skin that extra nurturing helping hand to reach its full glowing potential.
