Defy-gravity like Sandra Bullock
Defy gravity like Sandra Bullock
with the organic revitalising skincare range from PRIMAVERA®:
Sandra Bullock, who has famously starred in movies such as Miss Congeniality, Speed and more recently, Gravity, is the envy of many women around the world. At the age of 49, she boasts a flawless complexion and ever-youthful skin tone! So, how do we mere mortals ensure we stay looking as young and radiant as Ms Bullock?
PRIMAVERA® skincare expert, Ingrid Hume, offers her top tips to defy gravity, so that skin stays looking fresh, youthful and radiant:
Banish toxins: The PRIMAVERA® Organic Anti-Oxidant Mask with Rose and Pomegranate (£51.00 for 50ml) contains the miracle-ingredient bentonite - a green healing clay which not only helps to remove skin impurities and toxins but also repairs skin tissue and normalises excessive oil secretion on the skin. This organic Mask is expertly blended with organic pomegranate seed oil, green tea extracts and rose essential oil, which contains anti-oxidants to help prevent free radical damage and skin ageing, leaving skin feeling velvety soft and smooth and looking radiant.
Eat red and purple: Foods that are naturally these colours tend to be higher in anti-oxidants, which can help to fight the signs of ageing and contributes to a radiant and healthy complexion. Berries such as blueberries and raspberries, plus beetroot, pomegranates and purple carrots all provide great nutritional sources.
Exercise your face: To promote youthful radiant skin, regular daily facial exercises can be of great benefit, helping to improve muscle and skin tone, just as you would your body. Each exercise is simple, easy to follow and can be performed anywhere:
- Raise your eyebrows as high as they will go and then slowly relax them, to help prevent frown lines
- Open your mouth as wide as possible into an O shape and hold for five seconds to work your cheek muscles
- To help prevent a drooping jowl, look straight ahead and tilt your head back (as if looking up at the stars), push out your lower jaw and hold for four deep breaths.
Indulge in oil: We all know to cleanse, tone and moisturise our skin on a daily basis. But as skin gets older, it loses its elasticity, firmness and hydration levels. Therefore, it is important to treat your skin to a deep moisturising mask or intense facial oil treatment once a week. The Primavera® Organic Intensive Seed Oil Capsules (£63.00 for 30 capsules) are the ultimate skin indulgence - a perfect blend of pomegranate seed, wild rose, sallow thorn fruit, carrot and grape kernel organic oils to hydrate the skin and help combat signs of ageing.
Chill out with your eyes: Applying something cool to your delicate eye area can help to tighten the skin and decrease puffiness and dark circles. Keep Primavera® Organic Intensive Repair Eye Cream with Rose and Pomegranate (£50.00 for 15ml) in the fridge for a cooling and relaxing treat. Plus, the organic macadamia nut oil in this eye cream contains a very high quantity of palmitoleic fatty acids, which our skin loses as we gain in years, so replacing these fatty acids can help to delay signs of ageing while improving skin tone and firmness to help restore a youthful, radiant complexion.
