Warning: There is a very scary video of me below.
It’s my first ever video and I had an acute case of verbal diarrhoea (which is nothing unusual when I’m nervous). Oh and a very English accent!
So please be gentle with me 😉
Beauties, you already know I’m a tad over the top when it comes to my skin and how I treat it.
Skin is precious.
It’s also what greets me when I look at in the mirror first thing, every single morning.
I can change my hair, my make-up and my clothes; but I’m stuck with my skin.
That’s why, looking after our skin as we age, is super important.
Personally, my skin has always been dry and very sensitive.
Back in the day though, my skincare routine was almost non-existent.
Hypersensitive skin was not really catered for when I was a lass, so I relied upon the likes of Simple or Nivea.
I remember, my mum’s favourite was skincare product was Oil of Ulay…One day (when she wasn’t looking) I decided (in my teenage wisdom) to give it a go. I slopped on a big handful of the baby pink lotion. Let’s just say, it didn’t end well. Think hot sore blister-like lumps on my teenage face!
From that moment on, I realised I needed to take more care and source the right products ME.
These days, I treat my skin with the best (not always the most expensive) products I can find.
I’m looking for supple, hydrated skin.
To achieve this I have a solid skincare routine – I hit it with the big guns of topical skincare.
Vitamins A B C and E are a daily addition for me.
I use two different cleansers (one with lactic acid) to ensure my skin is squeaky clean and completely free of make-up residue.
I also clean my make-up brushes regularly-ish 😉
Yes, my skin needs may be different to yours, but the one thing we all have in common as we age, is collagen depletion.
The production of collagen in our epidermis is said to diminish at the rate of 1% for every year over the age of 20.
Now that is a scary thought.
Because collagen is what gives our skin elasticity.
It’s fibres help to stop our skin sagging and wrinkling.
Newa works by transmitting thermal heat that penetrates deep into the layers of the skin to reactivate and encourage natural collagen production.
More collagen less wrinkles – simple as that.
How to use:
After applying the activator gel to the electrodes, simply switch on the device to setting 2, and use in one of the 6 targeted areas of the face for 4 minutes.
To gain the best results use Newa 5 times per week for a 4 week period.
Followed by twice a week from then on.
As the Newa can not be used on the eyes and forehead, I find it a great way to compliment my existing facial treatments.
As well as wrinkles, another concern for me is the area around my chin (jowls). Encouraging collagen replacement in this area can only help in my battle for a more youthful appearance.
It’s very soothing and relaxing and can easily be done whilst relaxing with you feet up on the sofa – think of it as a dedicated slice of YOU-time.
Value for money:
When I think of the amount I spend on Botox, this system could be the perfect alternative for anyone that prefers a more of a au-natural approach.
The system costs $499 (which is the average price I spend on Botox) plus $59.95 for the cost of the gel.
· Clinically proven to firm, tighten and lift skin by reactivating your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen, Newa reduces wrinkles by up to 45% in just 12 weeks all in the comfort of your own home.
