When I see a collection like the one we have put together for our Todays Special Value on September 17th on QVC UK, it makes me realise what truly exceptional products we have when you see them all together and just how much power the sea really has to offer when it comes to targeted anti-ageing.
Packed with minerals, vitamins, amino acids and anti-oxidants, the powers of seaweed can be harnessed in a number of ways and in this collection - available exclusively at QVC UK - you will be able to discover how this magical marine ingredient can become your new beauty best friend….
The ocean’s plants are able to survive in extreme conditions and often adapt to changing environments, just like our skin has to. It’s this resilience and restorative ability that make seaweed and marine extracts so valuable in skincare terms, and we believe this system contains four of our most potent products that embrace the ocean’s elixir of youth.
This is the very first Todays Special Value to contain Pro-Collagen Marine Oil. This replenishing facial oil has been formulated with a trio of seaweeds - Padina Pavonica, Golden Seaweed and Roaring Water Kelp - to deliver maximum hydration whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. White Poppy Seed oil plumps the skin with moisture and leaves the complexion looking revitalised and radiant. This product should always be applied onto cleansed and toned skin – to combat dehydration you can even use an extra drop on top of your moisturiser to lock hydration in. I recommend that you apply over the face and neck every morning and evening before serum and/or moisturiser. Take 3-4 drops in the palm of your hands, warm and inhale the exquisite aroma. Cup hands and place on your face, avoiding eyelids, and pat onto the face, neck and décolleté. Gently place hands onto your chin and sweep alternate hands along the jawline to the ears. Slide hands to your nose and glide across cheeks to the temples. Slide fingers under the eyes to the bridge of the nose and then to the forehead. Glide from the centre to the temples. Finally, glide hands down the sides of the face and apply from the base of the neck to the tip of the chin using upward, sweeping strokes.
The next step is to apply your Pro-Collagen Eye Treatment. I have to say this is one of my most recommended eye products, suitable for all ages. This advanced eye treatment targets the fine lines and wrinkles around the delicate eye area caused by ageing and dehydration by smoothing the skin for a more youthful appearance. Super-active Padina Pavonica and Blue Flower Linseed help tone and firm, whilst a sophisticated Amino Acid complex attracts and locks moisture deep into the skin. The combination of exceptional moisturisation and regeneration supports fragile skin without overloading it. Simply take 1-2 drops and gently pat around the delicate eye area morning and evening.
We then have our luxurious treatment mask, which contains a unique and powerful algae, Padina Pavonica, to instantly firm and tone the skin. Adaptogenic Noni, Moringa and Argan Tree oil are combined to help support the skin and improve elasticity for a more youthful appearance. This product should be applied onto a cleansed face and neck. Take about the size of a 10p and smooth over the face and neck area, leaving it on for 10 minutes, or overnight for a more intense treatment. Remove with warm water and follow with your regular ELEMIS toner and moisturiser. For maximum benefits, apply over the Pro-Collagen Marine Oil. You can also exfoliate the skin before application of this mask for increased performance twice a week.
Please tune into my QVC show on September 17th to see how you can complete our 10-day challenge with this product.
The final product in this collection is the Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream, which helps with your skin’s natural regeneration process at night. The exceptional blend of Laminaria Digitata and Red Coral helps to maintain optimum skin condition, while the unique Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica helps to improve skin suppleness, firmness and elasticity. This oxygenating benefit is supported with anti-oxidant rich Sesame and Avocado Oils delivering free-radical protection. Wake up with a firmer-looking, radiant complexion whilst helping to delay any premature signs of ageing.
