If you are serious about achieving healthy skin, a healthy plant based diet along with a great morning and night time natural skin care routine that includes products that contain antioxidants is important for all skin types.
Our Savar natural skin care products are formulated with anti aging antioxidants which are found in colourful fruits, vegetables and plants such as pomegranate, blackcurrant, goji berries, kiwi fruit and rosehip.
The role of anti-oxidants is to fight off carcinogens, and carcinogens are things that have a negative impact on our skin and increase the rate of ageing. Examples of carcinogens are things like pollution, smoking and over-exposure to sun.
Natural antioxidants are one of the best ingredients to include in your plant based diet and natural skin care routine as they counteract these carcinogens and work to assist in repairing any damage caused. However, it’s important to take a preventative approach and not see natural antioxidants as a cure-all!
Every skin benefits from a decent natural skincare routine, the basics of which should consist of a good natural cleanser that removes make-up and dirt. Ideally if you can make the time to double cleanse then your skin will thank you for this; our natural Essential Cleansing Lotion is ideal for the job.
If you can add a toner to your routine, then all the better! This isn’t an essential step, but it does mean that you’re ensuring skin is completely clear of cleanser and primed and ready to accept moisturiser. View our natural Instant Boost Multi Toner here. Follow up with our Essential Hydration Moisturiser for normal dry skin or if your skin is normal to combination/oily we suggest using our natural Essential Hydration Moisturiser Light Day.
For your night time routine our Antioxidant Night Cream is the best moisturiser and don’t forget to take a few moments to massage it in. The organic pomegranate in our Night Cream is one of nature’s best anti ageing antioxidants. The pomegranate will nourish, restore and replenish your skin overnight – helping you to wake up with a beautiful, glowing complexion.
We also suggest including a natural eye cream and a natural serum like our Savar Wonder Lift Serum or Rosehip Ultra Brightening Serum under your natural moisturiser every morning and night. A natural serum is a more concentrated formula than a facial moisturiser and a lot lighter in texture, therefore works well under your moisturiser. The trick is to apply your serum and leave it for 2 to 4 minutes to let it absorb. This way your skin is prepped and ready to receive your natural moisturiser.
If you want to wakeup with a healthy nourished complexion, thoroughly cleansing and moisturising your skin is an absolute must, no matter how tired you are.
Your body and skin uses the sleeping hours doing everything it can to repair any damage – however minor – the previous day may have created.
