Earlier this week I visited a large department store near my home, only to discover that the Christmas decorations are already out in full force. This is always a good indicator that we are moving into a new season; for Australians a hot summer lies ahead, and on the other side of the world many people are probably dusting off their snow boots.
A change in seasons also means that many people will switch to a different skin care regime. In winter I need a generous application of Rich Anti-Aging Moisturiser, whereas I find the Lite Anti-Aging Moisturiser sufficient for the summer months. I especially love the coolness of our Duo Eye Gel to reduce the dark circles under my eyes, and to smooth out the fine lines.
Martin Buxbaum (Director of Public Relations and Communications for Marriott Corporation from 1953 to 1976, and author of 11 books) famously once said: “Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty – they merely move it from their faces into their hearts.” I agree, although I see no reason why beauty should “move” from the face to the heart. Keep the beautiful face, I say.
Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. And who wouldn’t be comfortable in a skin that is being pampered by products that are packed with superior ingredients, and which give visible results?
We at JK Secret Cosmeceutics believe that our range of 10 essential products is exactly what everyone needs to care for their skin. Throw in a few basic skin care tips and rules, and you are set to go – whatever the season is in your part of the world.
3 Tips for a glowing summer skin
- Exfoliate: Your body sheds skin cells at an astonishing rate every minute of every day. If you don’t get rid of these dead skin cells, they’ll just stay on the surface of your skin, causing it to appear dull and dry. Our Detoxifying Scrub comes in powder form, so you decide how much to use. Simply mix it with a cleanser, or with a little water, and gently exfoliate your face. You can use any excess to exfoliate your hands.
- Look after your hands: Our Intense Handy and Body Moisturiser contains generous amounts of vitamins and natural oils to protect your hand and make them look great. It also contains Zinc Oxide, a non-chemical mineral sunscreen, which protects your skin from the sun. Look no further than our Rescue Vita Oil for a miracle cuticle repair. Rub into your cuticles every night before bed, and you will have the best nails & cuticles ever!
- Get enough sleep: A well-rested person is a healthier person in general. Sleep allows our bodies to recover and restore. Sleep deprivation speeds up the aging process, which can most easily be noticed in the appearance of our skin . . . a major motivation to catch more zizzes’.
