Dry skin often feels itchy and uncomfortable and may be flaky, rough or cracked.
It often gets worse as you age or when you’re stressed, causing premature lines and wrinkles due to a lack of elasticity and suppleness in your skin.
With the respect! Foaming cleansers that strip your skin are a massive no-no, as are toners containing harsh alcohols or unnecessary parabens and sulphates.
Also be careful with potent active ingredients like glycolic acid and retinol as applying these too often or in high concentrations could compromise your skin’s barrier function, making your dryness so much worse. So, what about the things you should do?
Look for moisturisers that are rich in oils like our Imperial Moisturiser and Night Elixir.
And, because dry skin is lacking in sebum, it’s a good idea to further replace missing oils with Organic Age-Defying Facial Oil.
This is skin that’s lacking in water rather than oil.
A certain tightness, skin that looks duller than normal, dark circles around your eyes and fine lines that weren’t there yesterday are all signs that your skin is temporarily lacking in water.
Step one is to loosen dead skin cells with Natural Luminosity Scrub to help your serums and moisturisers penetrate your skin better.
Then, for rapid hydration for thirsty skin, our 100% natural Organic Hydration Gel is perfect. Designed specifically to boost water in your cells for instantly soothed skin thanks to its organic aloe vera and vegetable glycerin.
Pre-Eminent Beauty Serum is perfect for this to provide a double, thirst-quenching hit. Better still, use the serum and the gel together – applying the serum first, followed by your hydration gel.
"When the stern-faced consultant told me at just 34 I had breast cancer and would face months of chemotherapy, with no certainty I'd be OK I broke down and 'hit the floor'. How could this happen to me?!
I went from super-happy Mum of two young children who prided herself on looking her best to losing all my long blonde hair, my eyebrows, my tan. I looked pale and ill and nearly lost my life." Said Tracey.
There are few things if anything harder on your skin than the chemotherapy Tracey faced.
"Up until my breast cancer diagnosis I'd been really lucky with my skin but my treatment wreaked havoc! It really wanted to age me!" Said Tracey as she pinpointed the 7 top age revealing problems women are constantly nagged by:
Tracey tried pretty much everything in an attempt to regain her skin tone and self esteem. Dozens of different products and routines and yet none really made much difference. She was fed up, frustrated and struggling. She needed to find a solution.
And that's when it hit her ...
YES! If she was going to find something that worked ...she would have to do it herself!
Pre-Emiment Beauty Serum to naturally rejuvenate your youthful face. Imperial Eye Gel to help ease puffiness and dark circles around your eyes. Imperial Moisturiser to help lift and firm your face and neck and rebuild youthful appearance and Night Elixir for the ultimate overnight skin rejuvenation. Helping you look and feel young, happy and full of energy no matter what!
Only 18 months after being so thankfully cleared of breast cancer and judging by the photos and videos, Tracey is looking as good as ever. She's one of those lucky beauties with good features, luminous skin and now it's regrown, long blonde hair. Yet, she spends only a few minutes a day on her face before she's out the door.
As women age she says, looking fresh, rather than made up is the key.
Tracey lives with Henry and their two children Henry (junior, he's 10) and Matilda (she's 9) by the sea away from the hustle of her much loved London.
"Discovering I had breast cancer was both the worst and yet most inspiring time of my life. I'm so grateful to still be here that I will do everything I can to help as many women as I can look and feel fantastic and at the same time help end to breast cancer for good," says Tracey.
"I'd worked with some of the World's Top Skincare Brands run a chain of beauty salons, owned my own salon but never had the courage to really follow my passion and start my own skincare company. So I started with what I needed," she says. "Natural, nasty free skincare that really helped me look and feel better about myself and had people saying I looked great!"
So literally right after finishing her treatment for breast cancer she took her last few hundred pounds and she went into the skincare business herself. The response has been overwhelming with women all over the world ditching expensive high street products to switch to HighBorn and more positive feedback than Tracey had ever dare dream of.
