Most days, I am content if I’ve had a moment to wash and moisturize my face before going to bed, so you can assume that my skin care regimen is at best simple. My skin care regime is minimal, however, if I could pick three things that are the most important it would be cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting my skin from the sun’s damaging rays. Age has brought skincare to the forefront of my mind, and given the often hectic schedule I keep, I’ve been working to be more proactive about caring for my skin.
A few weeks ago, I spent the day at Glen Ivy Hot Springs with Skin Regimen learning about their skincare line, designed for those of us who’s lifestyle has taken a toll on both skin and mind. Formulated by the chemists of [comfort zone] and Davines, Skin Regimen is clinically proven to reduce the effects of stress and lifestyle aging on the skin and the mind.
Skin Regimen was inspired by the Asian multi-layering beauty routine and designed to slow down the aging process. Factors that can affect the skin include UV exposure, pollution, diet, quality of sleep, and stress. When these stressors alter the skin’s normal cellular processes, skin health is hindered.
The formulas in Skin Regimen’s product line were developed with highly concentrated botanicals and high-tech molecules (Modern Plant ChemistryTM) and enriched with the Longevity ComplexTM. The result is a line of products with a a natural rebalancing, reinvigorating aroma, and a cooling, massageable texture. These formulas weave in four essential oils including Juniper, Copahu, Rosewood, and Cedarwood and are free from synthetic fragrances, silicones, animal derivatives, artificial colorants, mineral oils, or parabens. The collection includes products which address common stress-related signs such as dehydration, dullness, imperfections, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Four Step Custom Skin Regimen
This year I turned 40 and have become increasingly aware of the effects of aging on my body, including my skin. One of my resolutions this year was to commit to a simple skin regiment. Skin Regimen offers a simple, custom skin regimen that includes four easy steps:
Step 1 – prepare: a gentle cleanser that effectively removes impurities
Step 2 – recharge: an energizing, illuminating lotion that restores optimal hydration and empowers the skin’s cellular vitality
Step 3 – correct: a customizable assortment created to correct the most common stress-related skin imperfections
Step 4 – reset: an innovative overnight detox, for regenerated skin in the morning
