Your Guide To Healthy Skin
Here are Gernetic’s 7 top tips for healthy, vibrant skin this Spring – you will soon be on your way to emerging from that winter cocoon as the beautiful butterfly that you are!
Moisturise, Moisturise, oh and did we say Moisturise?!
While a rich, thick moisturiser is great for Winter when skin becomes dry, as the weather warms up many of us find that heavy moisturiser leaves skin feeling too oily. It could be time to switch to a lighter moisturiser. Gernetic’s hero product, Synchro, with its unrivaled anti-inflammatory, regenerating and healing capabilities is rich in biological compounds, vitamins and essential fatty acids. The essential nutrients enhance the function of the skin cells and deeply hydrate. However, Synchro is rich and creamy. If you prefer a lighter cream, Synchro 2000 is Synchro’s Light version. It is equally nutritive and revitalising with the very same nutritive composition to the classic Synchro but with the lightness of a feather. You will love it!
Exfoliate or Not Exfoliate?
There is much debate on the do’s and don’ts of exfoliation but ultimately any aggressive stripping of the skin is a big no no! Gernetic’s Marine Cleansing Gel contains microcapsules that dissolve when rubbed to release a polyolefine gel that gently lifts away superficial dead cells. The perfect spring clean for your skin, Marine cleanser is rich in extracts of sea sediments to remineralise and energise your skin.
Spring Clean your Skin.
Continuing with a strict skincare routine is essential to beautiful, healthy skin. The warmer temperatures can exacerbate skin conditions such as acne so to prevent oil and dirt clogging pores, cleansing each morning and evening is vital. Gernetic recommends using a gentle cleanser on the face to nourish and protect the skin. Glyco cleansing Milk is rich in glycoproteins and calendula oil to hydrate, remove dead cells and encourage cellular renewal. Follow with a toner such as Fibro, with its complex of amino acids, to re-balance the skin’s PH and decongest the skin for a complete clean every day.
Don’t Hide those Hands!
Our hands are exposed to the elements throughout Winter not to mention being immersed in hot water and exposed to various cleaning chemicals. Be sure to lather them in a rich and nourishing hand cream such as Gernetic’s Manno – your hands will be soft and ageless in no time!
Load up with Superfoods.
You are what you eat and it goes without saying that what we choose to put into our bodies will reflect in the health of our skin. Load up with nature’s superfoods to nourish your body with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Green, leafy vegetables like kale, spinach and chard are rich in vitamin A and manganese which help to restore hormonal balance and keep skin clear. Nuts and seeds will give your body essential omega 3 fatty acids to nourish your skin. Berries are packed with Vitamin C to maintain skin elasticity and reduce the signs of ageing. Add the freshest superfoods to your diet and your skin will thank you for it.
Now Get Moving!
Regular exercise boosts blood flow, which maintains healthy skin cells. Not only is exercise great for your skin but it’s also great for your mental health as well as your physical wellbeing. Enjoy the warmer mornings and evenings to fit in a walk or workout and reap the benefits.
Drink Lots of Water!
I know you know this one, but I thought I’d just remind you of the importance of drinking lots of water (and I don’t mean coffee!). Whenever a skincare company talks about a cream or a serum hydrating the skin, it’s not that simple. You see, water molecules simply cannot penetrate the skin. We can only hydrate our skin by drinking the water. What some skincare products do is support the skin to retain the water in your skin for a longer period. Or even some products, like Gernétic’s Cells-life, will create more space in your skin cells, to store the water you drink.
So now you’re on top of your skincare routine, step out into the sunshine with the confidence to know you are looking and feeling ready for a fun-filled Spring!
