Rooibos skin care products demand grow

Rooibos skin care products demand grow

A growing preference for natural products free from chemicals, along with a concern for the environment is driving the demand for herbal beauty products. This means Annique, and its key ingredient Rooibos, is perfectly placed to suit your needs.

The high concentration of polyphenolic compounds (micronutrients) in Rooibos tea is what makes it so sought-after as a health and beauty enhancer. Polyphenols act as antioxidants that protect the body against inflammation. It neutralises harmful free radicals that would otherwise damage cells and cause premature ageing. Drinking Rooibos tea should form part of your daily beauty routine to ensure healthy and hydrated skin.

It also contains an abundance of the enzyme superoxide dismutase, which is an effective anti-ageing substance. As such. Rooibos reduces wrinkles and boosts the production of healthy skin cells.

The high flavonoid levels in Rooibos also help to improve skin disorders like eczema.  It’s natural anti-inflammatory properties will help soothe and relieve inflamed skin.  Rooibos teabags can be directly applied onto the affected skin for a few minutes.  Bathing regularly or rinsing inflamed areas with the tea will provide a healing effect.  Or, add rooibos in a spray bottle and apply throughout the day or when discomfort is experienced.

Inflammation is a major cause of acne and when your skin is damaged, it’s more vulnerable to bacteria which can aggravate acne. In addition to the tea’s anti-inflammatory response, it also contains antibacterial properties that will help fight acne. Drink it regularly and/or use it as a face rinse instead of water.

The polyphenols or antioxidants in Rooibos tea also strengthens hair follicles and promotes shiny and soft hair. Rinse your hair at least once a week with a strong brew of cooled down Rooibos tea for glowing locks. This is also good for treating a dry, itchy, or irritated scalp. Tired and sensitive eyes can also be treated with lukewarm Rooibos. Place tea bags on eyelids or rinse the eyes gently with the tea. Rooibos is also hypoallergenic and is therefore ideal for people with sensitive skin.

What is a combination skin?

What is a combination skin?

Combination skin occurs when two or more different skin types are prevalent on the face at the same time. Combination skin can at times be dry in some areas – usually on the cheeks, and oily in other: on the T-zone – over the nose, forehead, and chin. The T-zone can differ substantially from person to person – from a very slim zone to a wide extended area.

The oilier parts of combination skin are caused by an over-production of sebum or oil, while the drier parts of combination skin are caused by a lack of sebum and a corresponding lipid deficiency. Numerous people have this skin type and it can be challenging to care for optimally, as the cheeks need moisture while the nose, forehead and chin needs the oiliness to be regulated.

Add to that seasonal influences on the skin’s condition, and one soon has many skin challenges to address simultaneously. The oilier parts of combination skin are caused by an overproduction of sebum or oil. The drier parts of combination skin are caused by a lack of sebum and a corresponding lipid deficiency.

Few people are blessed with a normal skin type. The characteristics of this skin type are:

  • Not too dry and not too oily
  • No or few imperfections
  • No severe sensitivity
  • Barely visible pores
  • A radiant complexion

Inside Scoop into the Best Times to apply Moisturiser

Inside Scoop into the Best Times to apply Moisturiser

Knowing how and when to moisturise is just as important as the actual moisturiser you use on your face and body. Keep reading to learn the best times to incorporate moisturiser into your skin care routine – and how to apply it – for your most gorgeous looking skin yet.

Use moisturiser in the morning

Set your skin up for success by moisturising before you head out for the day. Moisturising should be the last step in your skin care routine before applying make-up, so don’t forget to use a face cream or lotion before applying your Annique foundation or BB Cream.

Use a moisturiser when you are breaking out

The first thing you may think when an unwanted breakout occurs is that you need to remove all moisture from your skin. And that’s totally the case, right? Wrong, in reality drying out your complexion won’t do you any favours! Keeping your skin care routine consistent, including moisturising up to eight times a day, is always a good idea.

Use a moisturiser…before you doing your make-up for a night out

As we mentioned earlier, applying a moisturiser should be the final step in your skin care routine, before you apply make-up for a night out – without repeating your skin care routine – it’s still important to moisturise. Using a moisturiser will hydrate and smooth out your skin, giving you the ideal complexion for applying your make-up look of choice.  Seriously, try it!

How to apply your moisturiser

Press moisturiser onto your face; do not rub it in

  • Pressing a moisturiser onto your face is a super gentle and non-irritating way of moisturising
  • Pressing gives the skin a concentrated dose of moisturiser
  • More of the moisturiser gets into your skin rather than rubbed into your hands
  • Pressing pushes moisturiser ‘in’ rather than stretching your skin

 

Your eyes reveal your age

Your eyes reveal your age

There are several factors that make the area around your eyes more vulnerable.

  • The skin around your eyes is extremely thin, so it is more susceptible to deterioration. As a result, it’s more prone to laxity, developing fine lines and wrinkles, becoming looser, and even thinner.
  • The tissue below the eyes is naturally missing a lot of essential elements that make your skin strong-there’s very little soft tissue, like fat or muscle. Lack of those supporting elements increases the likelihood of the skin caving in.
  • There is also the issue of dark circles and puffiness that can be a result of lack of sleep, diet and stress.

When it comes to restoring a youthful look, your eyes are your greatest opportunity. Whether it is wrinkles, hollowness, puffiness, or just fatigue, your eyes reveal ageing before any other part of your face.

As you age, your skin becomes thinner, especially around your eyes. You need collagen type Ill to combat this and Ampsyncol stimulates its production.

Annique’s Eye Therapy is a rich, nutritious eye cream, especially formulated for the minimising of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area.
