WE NEVER GET ANY YOUNGER, BUT WITH THE RIGHT SKINCARE, WE CAN LOOK FRESHER AND BETTER WITH AGE
At The Body Shop, we don’t believe in age. We believe in the power of positive energy. Because when you look after your skin, mind, body and soul, your age really is just a number.
CAUSES OF PREMATURE SKIN AGEING
As we get older, our skin faces more challenges. Cell production slows and environment and genetic factors such as sun damage, pollution and poor diet become more evident. As a result, mature skin looses its firmness and moisture, and requires more nourishing textures and active ingredients to work deep inside the skin.
TIPS FOR TAKING CARE OF MATURE SKIN
• Get to know your skin. It’s important to understand how your skin reacts to changes in environment so you can treat it effectively.
• Follow a simple daily skincare routine. You should at least cleanse and moisturise, everyday, and ideally add in a serum to treat.
• Stay hydrated! Drink plenty of water everyday.
• Use sun protection daily.
• Eliminate stress as much as possible. Take a look at our Spa of the World™ hub for ideas on relaxation techniques.
DR KIM ROS MASSAGE TECHNIQUE
“Massaging your skin is great for boosting circulation, bringing oxygen to the area and helping to remove toxins. It also warms the skin, which makes it easier for moisturising formulas to sink in.” – Dr. Christine Choi Kim
THE COMPLETE FIRMING AND SHAPING ROUTINE
Our 100% vegan Roots of Strength™ products can be used morning and evening in a simple three-step routine.
