Co-founder Rebecca shares the story behind our new Restore and Replenish Overnight Repair Mask and we get her tips for sleeping well.
Why is it important to care for skin whilst we sleep?
The body will naturally enhance its ability to fight environmental and natural damage while you sleep which in turn will result in a brighter and more balanced complexion.
Sleep reduces the stress hormone cortisol which is responsible for thinning skin, discoloration and stretch marks, while it increases the sleep hormone, melatonin which acts like an antioxidant to fight the visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and age spots.
Sufficient slumber can also improve the efficiency of special growth hormones that repair and regenerate collagen-producing cells, responsible for the skin’s tone and elasticity.
The length of time we sleep is equally important as the majority of rejuvenation and cell turnover occurs during our deepest sleep, known as rapid eye movement (REM).
Why was Restore and Replenish Overnight Mask created?
Customer feedback, our own skin concerns and industry research gave us the desire to create a highly potent night treatment which would slowly release moisture while skin was at rest, hence more receptive.
Skin is under increasing pressure from external factors such as weather, pollution as well as internal stresses like sleep deprivation and anxiety. Over time a combination of these elements will show in our faces and we need to respect and reward our skin accordingly. Restore and Replenish Overnight Repair Mask features additional skin hydrators to complement the natural peptide complex found in our Collagen Boost Range [Restore and Replenish Face Cream and Restore and Replenish Cream Cleanser] to ensure our natural peptide complex functions 24/7.
This is our most luxurious product; it has a rich indulgent texture and new innovative ingredients. Can you tell us about the benefits of these?
The combination of our cutting-edge naturally active ingredients; Aurealis, Day Moist, Tri-peptide and the super luxurious, velvet-y texture to appease stressed, dehydrated skin; combined with the restorative yet sophisticated aroma of neroli, benzoin and lavender makes this our most innovative product to date.
If you’ve tried any of our Collagen Boost range you’ll be familiar with our natural Tri-peptide complex, which already includes the following highly sophisticated ingredients:
Tri-peptide: A chain of amino acids that mimics broken down collagen molecules, tricking your cells into producing more. At the same time it blocks the enzymes that destroy collagen
Hyaluronic Acid: This can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water so is super plumping
Pea peptide: A source of essential amino acids and rich in protein to help restore the strength of the skin’s cell
Blackberry Seed Extract: An anti-oxidant rich extract which helps to boost collagen production and protect skin from everyday stresses
We have chosen to add two cutting-edge ingredients to our new night mask, whose primary properties are hydration.
Day Moist: A complex of natural plant-derived active ingredients that instantly raise the hydration levels of the upper layers of the skin. A fast-acting plumping effect is achieved, which lasts for up to 24 hours
Aurelias: An extract from Moroccan Bitter Orange Flowers, this cutting-edge ingredient boosts the production of Hyaluronic Acid within the epidermis over a longer period of time
