Lumity Life Anti Ageing Products FAQ

- YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED -

-

Youthful-looking skin is the ideal for so many of us. Unfortunately, there’s no way to bottle that youthful radiance into one miracle skincare formula – no matter how much we wish there was! However, there are a few tricks to help turn back the clock where your skin is concerned.

1. Discover the secrets of makeup artists – Makeup artists have all sorts of tricks up their sleeves where skin is concerned. Try some of these:
  • Don’t be afraid of bright colours – dull and dark colours can actually age your face more than you’d like them to. Instead, brighten up your makeup look with your favourite colour lipstick or eyeshadow.
  • Moisturise before applying foundation – this will lead to a fresh, dewy complexion, as well as helping to lock in moisture throughout the day.
  • Less is more when it comes to foundation – too much foundation or a formula that’s too heavy will sit in any wrinkles and pores and drag your complexion down, making you look older. Apply foundation sparingly and use concealer instead to cover any blemishes.
2. Exercise – Regular exercise doesn’t just help to keep you fit and healthy. It also helps your skin by increasing circulation. You’ll find yourself glowing and young-looking in no time.

3. Feed your skin the nutrients it needs – Antioxidant foods, like blueberries and mangoes, will help to protect your skin from environmental pollutants from the inside out.

4. Slough away dead skin cells – Exfoliate around once a week to keep dead skin cells from dulling your complexion. We recommend using a chemical exfoliant, rather than an abrasive one.

5. Get your beauty sleep – Sleep is so important for beautiful skin. Ensure you get 6 to 8 hours a night to help your body renew and regenerate.

6. Moisturise, inside and out – Applying a nutrient-rich moisturiser, such as Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil, is one way to keep skin glowing. It’s also important to ensure your body is hydrated on the inside too, to ensure that your skin cells are healthy and working the way they should.

As a skincare brand, this is a question we’re asked often. As such, we’ve come up with a foolproof routine to help each and every woman look younger, no matter what their skin concern:

1. Stay away from harsh ingredients – Ageing skin (or any skin, for that matter) doesn’t need harsh ingredients to keep it healthy. In fact, these can often do more harm than good in the long run. Instead, seek out a gentle cleanser as an everyday solution to keeping your skin healthy and clean.

2. Moisturise every day – After cleansing, it’s essential that you moisturise to help your skin retain nutrients and moisture that it needs to stay radiant and plump-looking. Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil provides the balance of nutrients that skin craves to help your skin stay looking its best.

3. Don’t underestimate SPF – You should be applying an SPF daily to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. As we age, sun exposure can cause sun spots, wrinkles, dryness and hyperpigmentation, as well as more dangerous conditions like skin cancer.

4. Exfoliate weekly – Exfoliating regularly will help to keep new skin cells at the surface, keeping your complexion dewy and radiant. Be careful no to over-exfoliate, though, as this can cause adverse effects. Once a week should be more than enough.

5. With makeup, less is more – We’re not saying don’t wear makeup, if that’s how you feel most comfortable. What we are saying is to rein in your use of makeup products. A dab of concealer should be enough to cover any blemishes, a touch of highlighter on your cheekbones will keep your complexion dewy and some blush will add a youthful, rosy glow. Eye-wise, apply eyeliner to your top lids as well as mascara to open up your eyes and use an eyebrow plumper to thicken up thinning brows.

6. Keep your teeth and hair healthy – Looking younger isn’t just about your skin. Keeping your teeth and hair in good shape will also help you look younger.

7. Dress appropriately – There are so many great fashion blogs for older women, now and there’s no need to try and dress yourself young. Instead, dress for your age, body shape and personal preference.

Whilst we wish we could stop the hands of time and keep our bodies young forever, ageing is just a fact of life. What we can do, is keep our bodies, minds and skin fit and healthy in order to retain a fresh and youthful glow that radiates from the inside out. Find out how:

1. Keep your face clean – this might sound obvious but bear with us. Washing your face gets rid of the excess dirt and bacteria that can cause irritation and ultimately make skin look and feel worse in the long run. Be sure to use a mild cleanser with a neutral pH and be gentle when rinsing.

2. Use moisturiser every day – it’s easy to forget about moisturising but it should be an essential part of your skincare routine. Whether you use a serum, an oil or a lotion, be sure to apply it every morning and every night to retain skin moisture and keep skin looking dewy and plump. The same goes for those with “oily skin” concerns – your skin may actually clear up after applying moisturiser for a few days.

3. Limit sun exposure and always wear SPF – we can’t stress enough how important this is. Even on cloudy days, your skin is still exposed to UV rays which can cause sun spots, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and dryness, amongst other things. Whatever age you are, you should never, ever leave home without an SPF.

4. Stay hydrated – water is the lifeblood of the skin. Hydrated skin looks firm and supple. Drinking more water also helps to flush away the toxins that would otherwise work to keep skin looking dull and sad.

5. Manage stress – this is something that is a constant struggle in our busy, modern world, but it’s vital when it comes to keeping body and mind healthy and happy. For skin, managing stress will help to prevent niggly frown lines from forming as well as help collagen production continue at a normal rate. This helps with skin elasticity, meaning that skin stays looking youthful for longer.

At Lumity, we believe that how you feel inside shows on the outside. Regardless of your size, complexion, colour or style, if you feel confident and happy in your skin, you’ll look beautiful no matter what. Your skincare, hairstyle and make up should make you feel happy and enhance your natural beauty. Here are a few top tips to help you radiate natural beauty:

1. Smile – smiling is an instant way to light up your face with no effort at all. Not only does it keep your facial muscles firm and tight, it also makes you feel great in yourself. And we all know that a happy mind leads to happy skin.

2. Feed your soul – at Lumity, we work to the 80/20 diet. In other words, 80% of what you eat should be healthy and nutrient-packed, with the other 20% being whatever you fancy. So, if you fancy a bowl of ice cream every once in a while, that’s OK. Food is for your mind and mood, as well as for your body.

3. Feed your skin - whilst feeling happy is great for your confidence and self-esteem, your skin will really glow with natural radiance if you feed it the nutrients it needs. Vitamins A, C and E are all great for boosting skin’s appearance and your skin, hair and nails will benefit from a diet that’s high in zinc and selenium too.

4. Embrace botanical beauty – natural beauty is best maintained using natural ingredients. Some of our favourite skin-boosting botanicals to look out for on ingredients lists include:
  • Passion Flower Seed Oil
  • Baobab Seed Oil
  • Marula Oil
  • Safflower Seed Oil
  • Camellia Seed Oil
  • Meadowfoam Seed Oil
  • Evening Primrose Oil
  • Argan Kernel Oil
  • Kukui Seed Oil
  • Jojoba Seed Oil
  • Sesame Seed Oil
  • Sunflower Seed Oil
  • Macadamia Seed Oil
  • Buriti Fruit Oil

For so many of us, makeup can be an instant confidence booster, helping us to enhance our favourite features and hide any unwanted blemishes. Unfortunately, with so much going on in our busy lives, sometimes the hassle of applying makeup is just too much. Never fear, though! We have some top tips to help you look and feel beautiful without any makeup at all.

1. Take care of your skin – Perhaps this goes without saying, but ensuring your skin is always in its best condition will make foundation instantly redundant. For picture perfect skin, we’d recommend following this routine:
  • MORNING: Apply moisturiser and SPF to keep your skin hydrated and protect it from the elements.
  • NIGHT: Using a gentle cleanser, thoroughly clean the skin, getting rid of the remnants of the day. Double cleansing is an absolute must! After this, apply moisturiser or night cream and get at least 8 hours sleep.
  • WEEKLY: We recommend exfoliating once a week, to slough off any dead skin cells and keep your skin radiant.
  • EVERY DAY: Make sure you feed your skin the right vitamins, minerals and nutrients to ensure that it’s getting the best care from the inside out. Make sure you always stay hydrated to keep skin looking plump and supple.
2. Smile – In the words of Annie “you’re never fully dressed without a smile”. Replace your makeup bag essential with a big grin and you’ll instantly feel less stressed and more confident.

3. Own it – Even if you hate the feeling of leaving the house without makeup, stand tall and exude confidence. You might have to fake it at first, but you’ll soon find yourself loving your makeup-free look.

4. Embrace your flaws – we all have flaws; this is what makes us human! Instead of trying to hide your skin flaws away, wear them proudly and remember, they’re not nearly as obvious as you think they are!

At Lumity, we believe that age is just a number and all women are beautiful. Whether you’re 25 or 55, your skin just needs the right nutrients, internally and externally, to ensure it stays healthy and glowing for as long as possible. Whilst there’s nothing wrong with embracing your age here are a few tips to keep skin looking young:

1. Get active – exercise is important whatever age you are, but it can be especially helpful once you hit your 50s. A regular routine which includes both cardio (running, dancing, anything that gets your heart rate up) and strength training (yoga, Pilates, etc) is the key to getting your blood pumping and staying fit and healthy. Along with shedding any unwanted pounds, your skin will benefit from the increased circulation as it will receive more oxygen and more of the nutrients it needs. All of this will leave your skin glowing and radiant.

2. Stress less – we know, this is easier said than done. However, stress is one of the main causes of less-than-perfect skin and can lead to breakouts, rashes and premature wrinkles. Take a moment out of your day to do something that eases your mind. A quick walk, ten minutes of meditation or a few deep breaths should suffice.

3. Laugh more – it’s a well-known fact that happy people are instantly more attractive people. Not only will laughing ensure that you radiate positivity to those around you, it’s also scientifically proven to increase your dopamine (the happy hormone) levels so that you’ll feel instantly less stressed.

4. Straighten up - standing up straighter will give you an instant aura of confidence and is a quick trick to improving the whole of your appearance.

5. Exfoliate – using a gentle chemical exfoliator (like glycolic acid), slough off dead skin cells at least twice a week. This will help to keep your complexion bright as well as help to speed up the cell turnover process which naturally slows as we age.

A fresh-faced youthful look is a beauty ideal sought after by women the world over and it’s only natural that so many of us want to claim back the radiance of our youth. Whilst there’s no way to stop time from marching on, there are some tricks to help you stay looking young, whatever your age.

1. Change up your hair – Believe it or not, your hairstyle can make all the difference when it comes to ageing your face. Of course, what suits you will depend entirely on personal preference, but generally speaking lighter tones and shorter cuts are the most youth-boosting looks.

2. Take care of your hands – Your hands can reveal a lot about your age; even with the best facial skincare routine in place, if you’re not looking after your hands, they’ll give you away! Keep your hands moisturised and manicured as much as possible to keep them looking as young as the rest of you.

3. Plump up your lips – Lipstick and lipliner should be an essential part of your makeup routine. Plumped lips give the illusion of a plump and supple face that will instantly shave away the years.

4. Moisturise your skin daily – Whatever age you are, moisturiser is a must. Moisturising can help skin retain moisture and nutrients, helping it to stay plump and healthy-looking all day long.

5. Stay hydrated – Hydration on the outside is one thing but making sure your body’s getting enough water on the inside is just as important. Not only does it help your system to flush out toxins that can cause internal damage, it also helps your skin cells to stay healthy and maintain their normal functions.

Regular skincare is key to helping your skin look and feel healthy, whatever age you are. Achieving the glow you’ve always dreamed of comes down to one thing; sticking to a regular skin- and self-care routine. Whilst we can’t turn back the hands of time, we can share a few of our top tips on getting younger-looking skin.

1. It’s all about moisturising – whether you’re an oil, serum or cream fan, moisturising is essential when it comes to reducing fine lines and boosting your complexion. Make moisturiser a central part of your skincare routine to shave years off of your skin’s appearance.

2. Smile more – don’t just take it from us. It’s scientifically proven that smiling can increase the levels of dopamine our bodies produce. In other words, the more you smile, the happier you’ll feel. Increased levels of dopamine lead to decreased levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, helping skin to recover from the ageing effects of stress.

3. Take care of your eyebrows – this might not be the first thing that springs to mind when it comes to keeping your face youthful, but eyebrows can do incredible things to the way our faces look. Incorporate a little eyebrow plumper to your makeup routine and we promise you’ll see an instant difference!

4. Treat your skin to regular facials – this one’s simple; when you’re giving your skin the care it needs, it will thank you with a glowing, youthful-looking complexion.

5. Make sure you’re eating enough protein – protein is the backbone for hair, skin and nail health. If you’re running low on protein, you’re likely to notice your hair thinning, your nails becoming brittle and your skin losing its lustre. Make sure you’re eating plenty of healthy, protein-rich foods, like organic salmon and eggs to ensure your skin stays healthy.

Whatever your age, regular skincare is key to helping your skin look and feel healthy and youthful. Loving the skin you’re in is all about sticking to the right routine and making sure you’re taking care of yourself in the best ways. Regrettably, we can’t stop the hands of time, but we can give a skin the care it needs to stay looking its best. Here are our tips on looking younger naturally, whatever age you are:

1. Moisturise daily – whether you prefer an oil, a lotion or a serum the product you use should be applied morning and night and provide the moisture your skin needs to stay supple throughout the day.

2. Nourish your skin from the inside – like any other organ, your skin needs to right nutrients to stay healthy and working the way it should. Feed your skin foods that are rich in vitamins A, C and E as well as zinc and selenium and we’re sure you’ll notice a difference.

3. Get moving – exercise is important at every age, but as we get older its more important to keep active. Ensure you’re getting your heart rate up with exercise like running or cycling and stay strong with yoga or Pilates. You’ll find that the increased circulation will have your skin glowing and you may even lose unwanted pounds in the process.

4. Think about your posture – when it comes to looking younger, confidence is key. Standing up straighter will instantly give you an air of confidence as well as improving your appearance altogether.

5. Breathe – we all know how bad stress is for our skin, and yet so few of us do anything to combat it. If you feel yourself getting flustered simply take five minutes to stop, clear your mind and breathe deeply. We can guarantee you’ll feel better for it, and so will your skin.

With so many stressors affecting the health of our skin, it can be difficult to keep it looking young, fresh and radiant. However, there are a few ways you can keep your skin looking and feeling youthful:

1. Provide the right nutrients – you’ll no doubt have heard that you need to “feed your skin”. What you put in your body is just as important as what you put on your body when it comes to skincare. Some of the best nutrients for skin include: vitamins A, C and E and zinc.

2. Destress your mind – whilst this is easier said than done, taking some time to relax and unwind can work wonders for your skin. Simply take 5 minutes to yourself to stop and focus on nothing but your breathing. Just those few minutes will do your skin the world of good when it comes to keeping skin glowing.

3. Don’t leave home without applying SPF – when it comes to ways to make skin look younger, there’s nothing more important than sunscreen. UV rays have a habit of causing wrinkles, sun spots, hyperpigmentation and reduced skin elasticity. All of these can add years to your skin’s appearance. Even if it’s cloudy outside, make sure you slather on a good quality SPF to protect your skin from the elements.

4. Practice facial yoga – we know it sounds weird, but a few facial exercises every day will tighten up your skin and facial muscles, helping to smooth out any wrinkles and skin niggles.

5. Exercise – this is good for mind and body as well as your skin. As you run/ cycle/ swim, you’ll find yourself destressing as the endorphins kick in. This, in turn, is a great way to prevent frown lines from forming.

6. Remove make up properly – before you go to bed, make sure all of your make up has been washed away from your skin. Not doing this can cause bacteria to build up causing enlarged pores and other skin concerns. Make sure you follow a nightly regimen of cleanser and moisturising oil, cream or serum to ensure that your skin has the best chance to repair during the night.

When it comes to tackling the niggly signs of skin ageing, like frown lines, wrinkles and dull-looking skin, Botox and cosmetic procedures are often the first place people turn to reverse the visible effects of time.

Whilst there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, some people may feel squeamish about procedures like Botox. There’s nothing wrong with this either! There are actually many alternatives out there to help you keep your skin looking and feeling its best.

1. CACI treatments – this non-surgical wrinkle-busting option is perfect for those who are looking for an instant boost. CACI treatments work by transmitting tiny electrical currents through muscles and bones in the target areas, helping to lift them to their original position. These treatments work with your body’s natural bioelectrical system to lift the skin and rejuvenate the complexion.

2. Retinol products – whilst these might not be the best for everyone’s skin (sensitive skin sufferers should stay well away), retinol products can be great for instant illumination. Working to smooth out the skin’s surface and promote skin’s natural collagen production, retinol is a popular choice to add in to your nightly skincare regime.

3. Chemical peels – chemical peels are another popular option when it comes to rejuvenating the skin’s appearance. Whilst it might take slightly longer to see the results post-treatment, you’ll soon notice smoother and brighter-looking skin.

4. Eat for your skin – beauty comes from the inside too, and the nutrients you eat can have a big impact on your skin’s appearance. Colourful fruit and veg and plenty of protein should ensure your skin stays plump and young-looking.

When it comes to making your face look younger, there are plenty of tricks in the book to shave years off your appearance. From skincare to makeup, we have some favourites to share with you:

1. Warm up your hair colour – Instead of opting for ashy blondes, which run the risk of looking dull and grey, ask your hairdresser to pop in some warm highlights. This will help to frame your face and lend it a nice subtle glow.

2. Fill out your lips – Plump and defined lips create the illusion of plump and defined skin. Fake it with a lip liner that matches your natural lip tone and then top with some hydrating gloss for a perfect pout in minutes.

3. Use an acid peel regularly – The logic is simple: the more you use a peel, the more your skin will glow. Invest in a mask that contains both salicylic and glycolic acid for the best results.

4. Pay attention to your brows – Apart from fine lines and wrinkles, thinning brows are perhaps the most common signs of ageing. Try to resist the temptation to pluck your brows and fill and shape as part of your makeup routine.

5. Lift your cheekbones with a shimmery blush – This will help to create the illusion of youth and a naturally dewy complexion.

6. Invest in a retinol product – Retinol helps your skin to carry out the process of cell renewal and should be applied every night to give your skin the best chance to recover.

-

With so many skincare products and active ingredients to choose from, knowing which one to pick up off the shelf can be a struggle, to say the least. When it comes to the world of products for ageing skin, the case is no different. To help you decide what’s right for your skin, we have some suggestions:

1. Glycolic Acid – This popular chemical exfoliant is gentle enough to use every day, but tough enough to refresh and renew tired looking skin. Look for it in a cleanser form to easily incorporate this into your skincare routine.

2. Green Tea – Whether you drink it or you apply it on your skin, green tea can have some serious benefits. Rich in polyphenols, compounds found only in plants, green tea is rich in nutrients and can help to maintain normal collagen production for better looking skin.

3. Retinol – This has been a bit of a buzzword in skincare for a few years now, and there’s a reason. Retinol, a form of vitamin A, is used to smooth out the surface of the skin, helping to maintain normal turnover of skin cells to keep new cells at the surface.

4. Biotin – Also known as vitamin H, biotin has long been used in the supplement world for its skin, hair and nail maintaining properties. Found naturally in foods like eggs and avocado, it’s the perfect excuse to indulge in Sunday brunch!
