Not drinking enough water? Smoking? Going without SPF? Not washing your makeup off at night?
Well, we all commit one sin or another against our skin in some shape or form, hell, some of commit more than one, for shame.
Sincare calls us out on our deadly skin sins and gives us a way to correct our skin in the form of a booster serum that you can use prior to moisturizing to enhance your skin and erase the signs of aging, that second cocktail you had during the weekend, or the stress of a long day.
Let’s check out the eight skin sins you may be comitting and the eight ways that Sincare promises to help you!
Sin #1 Smoking
I’m personally not a smoker but I’m around alot of people that are. One of my x-boyfriend’s was Dutch and the man was never seen without rolling papers. Complete Euro experience to the max when I was with him but not so great for my skin, clothes, and hair.
This concentrated serum targets the impacts of smoking on your skin! So if you’re a smoker or you’re around smokers this will do the trick at restoring your skin (or so it promises).
Moringa Seed assists with purification, Germinated Rye Seed helps to prepare skin for the stress of smoking while Hibiscus Seed Extract assists with limiting muscle cell contractions –helping to reduce wrinkles. Smokers’ Secret also contains a cocktail of vitamins, herbs and antioxidants to assist with supporting the skin.
Sin #2 Sun Damage
I’m SPF’ing myself to an early grave. Rain, shine, or snow, SPF is always essential as far as I’m concerned but some folks aren’t as religious with it. Meet my sister who has the perfect olive skin and thinks SPF is completely unnecessary, GASP!
Exposure to the sun is the number one cause of premature aging and skin damage. This little gem promises to help skin that’s been overly exposed to the sun!
Sun Goddess contains cosmeceutical ingredient Phytosphingosine, which has been tested on photo-aged skin. Phytosphingosine aids in increasing collagen synthesis and assists with reinforcing the (DEJ) dermal-epidermal junction – a must have for improving sun damaged skin. Also contains a vitamin and antioxidant cocktail.
Sin#3 High Sugar Diet
I’m not a terribly big sweet person but take me to Britain and I get a little crazy. I have a serious problem when it comes to Lion Bars, Cadbury Clusters, and just about every other lovely little chocolate found in the UK.
According to Sincare…
Sugar consumption is a major cause of premature aging and is believed to cause almost as much premature aging as the sun. Sugar causes collagen within the skin to stiffen, which in turn causes wrinkles, a process called glycation. Sugar consumption can make skin look sallow and increase free radicals, the natural enemy of beautiful skin.
Glycogen and Uva Ursi Leaf assist in protecting the skin against sugar intake (glycation).They also fight free radicals. Lychees assist with promoting a revitalised, brighter and more radiant complexion.
Sin #4 Stress
My father says you’re not American unless you’re stressed out. He’s obviously testimony to a true laid back European as the man never so much as hiccups in sticky situations. I’d like to think I took after him because very little gets me upset or stressed out even though my job can put on alot of pressure. For the most part, you prob have some stress factor in your life or another so this serum is for you!
Marine Glycogen assists with stimulating oxygen consumption, helping to restore energy to the skin. Lychees assist with stimulating radiance, Pineapple helps to reduce signs of fatigue while Rosemary assists with combating skin stress and assists with neutralising free radicals. Chlorella Vulgaris and Lupinus Albus assists with strengthening the cellular complex and stabilising the skin.
Sin #5 Fatigue/Lack of Sleep
Guilty as charged. There aren’t enough hours to get it all done. Work, my life, and my blog don’t allow for alot of sleep but I try to get my eight hours or I’ll end up grumpy. The weekend comes and I seriously get very little sleep. So this serum might be the one I need!
Hyaluronic Acid instantly moisturises and aids in decreasing the appearance of fine lines, while Lychees help to promote radiance and improve the complexion. Horsechestnut assists in reducing puffiness. Pineapple assists with revitalisation and helps to diminish signs of fatigue while Rosemary combats skin stress and aids in neutralizing of free radicals.
Sin #6 Sports Fatigue
Overexerting yourself with exercise and sports? Can’t say I’m a big sports person but those who are might find this serum will help add extra support to your perfect diet and great exercise regime!
Glycophosphoprotein aids in restoring the appearance of vitality and youthfulness. Natural anti-wrinkle ingredient Hibiscus Seed Extract gives the skin that extra boost helping to keep skin toned. Laminaria Digitata and Chrondrus Crispus increase suppleness and supply mineral salts and oligoelements to the skin.
Sin #7 Time Poor
Want to rewind time and start reversing the signs of aging? This serum is the one for you particularly for those too busy to take proper care of their skin!
Natural cosmeceutical Hibiscus Seed Extract (Myoxinol), aids in limiting muscle cell contractions which are a main cause of mechanical wrinkles, helping to reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles. Lychees work to increase the appearance of radiance by brightening the complexion.
Sin #8 Smog/City Living
Smog, City living, traffic….Yup, I’m a New York girl so I’m dealing with all that and more!
Anti-Pollution System™ (A.P.S) containing hydrolysed wheat protein, Biotin and Tilia Cordata Wood extract helps to reduce skin stress. Oxygen Complex™ aids in stimulating oxygen consumption and helps to restore energy reserves. Ginseng extract enhances skin vitality. Yeast assists the skin’s defense system while antioxidants protect against free-radical attack.
