A lot of people find the topic of fat a hard one to swallow. After all, the last 70 years or so of modern medicine has preached that fat makes you fat. We are only now realising that this is not true in the case of good saturated fats from fish, avocados, coconut and nuts. The real culprits are gluten, processed foods and sugar. In fact, eating these foods everyday help you to burn that dangerous tummy fat. It’s the processed foods, refined carbohydrates and sugars that are the real culprits when it comes to your health and anti aging routine.
When it comes to health and anti aging, you want to be a well oiled machine, well lubricated like your car. It reduces inflammation in the body, helps your body to fight off disease and keeps your cells nice and plump. Healthy plump cells are the key to reducing fine lines and dullness that leads to ageing.
The same applies for the topical care of your skin. All Eminence products contain lipids, this is how product penetrates the natural skin barrier, even our clear skin products. If there were no lipids, nutrients wouldn’t be able to penetrate and feed the skin, instead just evaporating off the surface. As we get older the skins natural lipids and fats deplete, often people will need to switch to heavier more nourishing moisturisers as each decade passes, starting from your 30’s as a general rule. Ageing skin needs nourishment to strengthen, nourish and support collagen and elastin production. Ingredients like bamboo, hyaluronic acid, coconut and oils like calendula become essential.
Using face and body oils are a great way to support the natural lipids in the skin without being greasy, the skin loves oil. Coconut is another favourite, your body can use and metabolise everything in coconut oil as opposed to other saturated fats making it the ideal super food for skin and body. Seabuckthorn Berry is another star ingredient used in quite a few products, this nifty ingredient actually protects your cell membrane.
All of these ingredients are designed to heal, strengthen and protect your skin while you correct any skin condition concerns you may have. Even though you may be going through a course of laser or peels it is so important to nourish the skin in between these treatments, it won’t lesson the effect, in fact it will enhance the result.
