It might come as a surprise to learn that your skin behaves differently during the day than it does at night. And no, it doesn’t go into rest mode either. Instead, it does even more work. Or rather, your skin cells work together to do more work. See, while you lie sound asleep in bed, your skin cells turn their attention inwards and put themselves to work rejuvenating and rebuilding the framework of your skin that they had spent all day protecting from the constant onslaught of environmental factors that cause your skin stress. They do this every night without fail, no matter what. Pretty cool, right?
And since your fabulous and always hard working skin cells are constantly working on rebuilding the integrity of your skin and putting out the proverbial fires of premature aging that get started by free radicals during the day, doesn’t it make sense to help them along? We think it does! And there’s nothing we love more than being apart of the natural intelligence that is our skin, unless of course we get to add the natural intelligence of the plant world to it.
So how can you help? By using the ideal skincare products you can support your skin to do what it does best, when it does best. For the daytime, give it products that help it protect itself from the onslaught of environmental pollutants, sun and other stressors that manufacture free radicals. Ingredients like this include vitamin C, adaptogenic substances like Jojoba oil and antioxidants like vitamin E. During the night, your skin benefits from substances like plant peptides and stem cells, soothing and anti inflammatory essential oils like Helichrysum and Rose, as well as richly anti aging carrier oils such as Tamanu.
Even though they can’t talk, your skin cells will be thanking you in spades- and you’ll know it by the glow of your skin.
