New Year’s Resolution: Get More Veggies

“Weeks of indulgence has left me with dull, dehydrated skin. I need a good boost of health.”

Hands up if the festive break has left you feeling groggy with a strong craving for green juice, carrot sticks and healthy salads? We’ve got you.

If your skin is showing signs of imbalance, dullness and dehydration this January, it’s time for a Superfood shot. Think natural extracts of Avocado, Broccoli, Kale and Cucumber from our Superfood Healthy Kickstart collection. Like a juice cleanse for the skin, the nutrient-dense ingredients in our unisex Superfood kit are combined with a natural sugar-derived Pre-Biotic to support skin’s microflora and clear the way for a radiant, beautiful 2019.

Ready to restore skin health, slough away dead cells and protect your complexion with vital hydration as we enter the winter months? Discover four simple steps for a healthy-looking glow this New Year.  

What is a Pre-Biotic?

A Pre-Biotic is a food source for the skin’s ‘good’ microflora, more commonly known as good bacteria.  Without a good balance of bacteria, the skin’s ecosystem has less protection, meaning that environmental aggressors like pollution can penetrate more easily and trigger damage and irritation. The Pre-Biotic found in our Superfood range is a vegan-friendly, natural, sugar-derived gluco-oligosaccharide, shown to stimulate the growth of ‘good’ microflora and is combined with nutrient-dense Superfoods to leave the complexion looking luminous and bright, with an outdoor-fresh glow.

What makes something a Superfood?

A Superfood is any food that contains a super-high-density of vital nutrients and minerals combined with things like anti-oxidants, enzymes and fats such as Omega-3 and 4. In skincare, extracts of actives like Flax Seed, Daikon Radish, Pineapple and Pumpkin can all help boost the skin’s hydration, help fight off free radicals and promote a beautiful balance.

How do I use the Healthy Kickstart collection?

Step 1

Superfood Facial Wash

Packed with extracts of Avocado, Broccoli and Pumpkin Seed, use this nourishing facial wash morning and evening. Mix into your palms adding warm water and gently massage over the face. Rinse off and pat dry to reveal fresh, glowing skin.

Step 2

Superfood Facial Oil

Massage 3-4 drops of this highly concentrated oil over the face and neck every morning and evening while inhaling the refreshing, gingery aroma. Anti-oxidant and omega-rich Broccoli, Flax Seed and Daikon Radish feed the complexion for stunning radiance. Plus, the oil also be used as a delicate highlighter along the cheekbones, bridge of the nose and Cupid’s bow. Simply dot a small amount on your fingertips and apply lightly.

Step 3

Superfood Day Cream

The active Pre-Biotic in this illuminating moisturizer helps to balance, smooth and hydrate dull skin. Use daily, every morning and follow with your regular SPF.

Step 4

Papaya Enzyme Peel

Twice a week, exfoliate your skin with the natural fruit enzymes of Papaya and calming Pineapple to smooth and clarify the complexion. Warm into the palms and apply to cleansed skin, avoiding the delicate eye area. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and remove with lukewarm water.
