Sarah cultivated her own personal philosophy about beauty: a clear, glowing complexion is the perfect foundation and a beautiful glow is the essence of beauty. Her commitment to living a clean, conscious lifestyle, and her deep understanding of the body-mind-beauty balance, Sarah has pioneered a philosophy of ‘Beauty is Simplicity’, a holistic approach to simple, healthy radiance.
‘External ageing’ or ‘environmental ageing’, is caused by external factors that often act together with the normal ageing process to prematurely age our skin.
Although skin ageing is a biological certainty, and there is no natural products to turn back time there is still much that can be done to make the process as slow as possible. By simply looking after yourself, body & mind and provide your skin the right nutrients it needs. Vitamin C has been linked to collagen production and it is also known that Vitamins A (Retionol) and E both play roles in the maintenance of skin health and youth. Both key ingredients that can be found in high levels in Cacay Oil. According to studies outlined that skin ageing is only 3% genetic and over 90% assigned to diet and lifestyle choices referring to external and environmental triggers. While skincare is not a magic wand, it is true that skincare products on their own cannot work miracles, and a holistic approach needs to be applied to bring balance to your life.
Factors which influence ageing include and are not limited to the below:
- Weather / Sun
- Smoking / drinking
- Lack of sleep/rest
- Repetitive facial expressions
The ageing process, both intrinsic and extrinsic, is influenced by the formation of free radicals.
What are free radicals?
Free radicals have lost an electron and thus unbalance atoms. Free radicals are generally not dangerous and part of life. They can be formed during normal bodily functions such as when cells burn food, or the body is fighting off bacteria or viruses etc. Free radicals are part of life. However, when our cells are exposed to pollution, environmental triggers, smoking, other stressors these will create a larger quantity of free radicals in the body. Thi
