The Importance of Nourishing Aging Skin
Daily moisturizing keeps your skin plump and youthful; however, that is not the only benefit. Using products that nourish your skin with antioxidants and gentle nutrients help slow down the aging process and diminish damage from external factors.
If you are struggling with signs of aging skin right now, we know it is frustrating to deal with loose skin, thin skin, slower healing, spots, wrinkles, and fine lines. Trying to cover up these parts of your skin with makeup or trying to “cure it” with a skin care product that promises rapid results, only to be disappointed, is even more frustrating. To truly nourish your skin and minimize the signs of aging, it is necessary to ensure that you are using gentle and effective ingredients and have a consistent skin care routine. When it comes to skin health, there are no quick fixes.
Moisture is essential to helping your skin repair itself. This all starts at the outer layer, the epidermis. The epidermis is a physical barrier that helps block toxins and microorganisms that might cause damage. Another job of the epidermis is to hold moisture and nutrients that keep your skin smooth and moisturized. Without this moisture, your skin will show signs of damage. Your skin won’t be able to build new cells or protect itself from tearing or collagen breakdown.
Your skin can only perform its protective tasks if it has enough moisture and nourishment. This is why it is important to have a balanced skin care flow that includes a combination of the right ingredients, including antioxidants, acids, and extracts that work to remove impurities and supply continual moisture.
How the Navinka Skin Care Flow Supports Aging Skin
At Navinka, our entire skin care line is designed to support healthy moisture and nutrient balance to keep your skin looking plump and dewy. In addition, our products work to support cell renewal, healing from UV damage, and encourage collagen production. Here’s how it works!
Step 1: 2-Step Cleanser
Our 2-Step Cleanser is a double cleanser that melts away impurities and cleanses pores to clear and repair skin from stress. Step 1 contains sea buckthorn oil, apricot kernel oil. These ingredients work together to not only cleanse skin but also help reduce irritation from UV exposure, promote skin elasticity, and reduce dryness. They also add moisture, so you can start your skin care for the day on the right foot!
Step 2: T-Zone + Cheeks
After cleansing, it is time to apply a moisturizing serum to lock in the moisture your skin needs to stay protected throughout the day. T-Zone + Cheeks contains nutrients that work together to deeply hydrate, lock in moisture, and plump your skin by stimulating collagen production. One of the most important ingredients in this serum is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body and found in skin, eyes, and connective tissues. Its main function is to keep your tissues lubricated by retaining water.
Half of the hyaluronic acid in your body is in your skin. Because of how much moisture it holds, it can help increase skin moisture and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The addition of hydrolyzed marine elastin helps stimulate cell growth and turnover, which keeps the surface of your skin looking smooth and youthful.
What makes T-Zone and Cheeks unique is that you apply T-Zone to your forehead, nose and chin, followed by a small amount of Cheeks into your cheeks. This is to support the different needs of these areas on your face, since the t-zone tends to be oilier and the cheeks are drier.
Step 3: Eye Transformer
The next step is using the Navinka Eye Transformer. Did you know that the skin around your eyes is thinner than the rest of the skin on your body? It is essential to be especially gentle when taking care of this part of your face. This is a brightening eye serum that contains ceramides and tripeptides to replenish nutrients and restore moisture. Plus, these ingredients provide protection from environmental damage, such as UV rays. Vegetable-derived ceramides are identical to lipids found in the skin, delivering advanced moisture. The addition of copper tripeptides help diminish the appearance of premature aging and help visibly reduce wrinkles when used over time. They also promote collagen production and help soften skin quickly. And if you’re still worried about puffiness after moisturizing, coffee extract helps depuff and reduce redness. Another benefit of the Eye Transformer is that you can apply it over makeup if it is needed throughout the day.
Step 4: Nightly Calibrator
After cleansing again with the 2-Step Cleanser to remove build-up and impurities from the day, the Nightly Calibrator uses acids to dissolve dead skin cells and pollutants, including makeup, sweat, and grime from the environment. What differentiates the Nightly Calibrator is that these acids are gentle and will not strip away moisture from your skin.
Alpha and beta hydroxy acids even out skin texture, which can lead to a more youthful appearance. The purpose of hydroxy acids is to smooth, firm, and brighten your skin.
Furthermore, the Nightly Calibrator contains mandelic and phytic acids. Mandelic acid derived from almonds fades irregular pigmentation while strengthening collagen. Phytic acid is a gentle acid derived from rice. Because it absorbs calcium, it helps break down oils on our skin, allowing pores to clear and restore to their normal size.
The addition of reishi mushroom extract promotes skin health with beta glucans that work to soothe skin. Reishi mushroom also delivers antioxidant protection to the skin, helping to scavenge free radicals from the environment. Finally, elderberry extract helps fight acne with flavonoids. Elderberry extract also contains high amounts of Vitamin A that may help fade age spots and minimize deepening wrinkles.
If you really want more youthful looking skin, don’t cover up your natural radiance. With the right skin care products that are used consistently over an extended period of time, you can heal and nourish your skin properly -– and have glowing skin for years to come!
