Q. What is the only organ of the body that physically shows you what’s wrong with it and can often signify changes in your health?
Our skin is the largest organ of our beautiful bodies, but it is often neglected due to our busy lives. I’d like to share with you a step-by-step guide to improving common signs of ageing, hydration, skin tone (including pigmentation), radiance, wrinkles, skin laxity and blemishes. Let’s look after what has been looking after us our whole lives.
To compliment the leading-edge technology utilised at Body Catalyst, we have chosen a highly advanced medical grade skin care range – FILLMED. FILLMED is a professional cosmeceutical range of products, specifically designed to work in synergy with non -surgical cosmetic procedures as a preventative measure to skin ageing. FILLMED was formulated in a French laboratory over 40 years ago by Doctor Michel Tordjman, a medical expert in cellular ageing. The range consists of active ingredients we can safely use at home. Our compact range consists of cleansers, serums and moisturisers, as well as masks and the famous NCTF skin booster (in-clinic treatment).
I’d like to show you my favourite 3 step skin routine using these incredible products, but I need you to understand what they do and how they work. Yes, I work for Body Catalyst, however I am an enthusiast when it comes to my skin and it’s appearance, and I have finally (and I mean FINALLY) found what works for me. Coming from a nutritional background based on science, I strongly believe in the old white paper evidence, the good old scientific studies, and FILLMED have provided just that. Let me share with you.
What are the products I use at home? Well, I use 3 in the AM and 3 in the PM. I understand the 3 step process of looking after our skin; a cleanser, a serum and a moisturizer. I have been practising this now religiously for over 2 months, and my skin is loving it. I see it in the mirror, and I’m receiving more compliments than I ever have on my glowing skin.
WOW! FILLMED Cleansing Oil is fantastic for removing waterproof makeup, but don’t take my word for it – try cleansing your face with micellar water and a cotton pad (it’s what I used to use), then try using FILLMED Cleansing Oil and you’ll notice how much more the cleansing oil takes off. I used to think my micellar water was good until I started using the cleanser. It’s designed specifically to take off all the ‘gunk’ and ‘grime’ of the day. No fuss, simply apply and massage onto the face and rinse off with water. With ingredients such as Ricin and Coco oil, it leaves a beautiful soft protective layer on the skin.
Yes, ‘of choice’, because there are 3. Why? Because each addresses the 3 biggest concerns we have with our skin – laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, and hydration. So let me explain each of them, then you can choose, mix and match what works best for you.
FILLMED Hydra Serum: Let’s talk Hyaluronic acid and Vit B5 to help balance the skin’s moisture barrier and smooth the appearance of dehydration and wrinkles. It’s water for our skin, like water for our plants to grow. Both of these ingredients act as skin repairers and water balancers. FILLMED Hydra Serum is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin, and with scientific evidence of 15 day usage contributing to +42% hydration and +36% skin laxity/smoother skin improvement, it’s honestly a no brainer.
FILLMED Lift Serum: This bad boy is enriched with collagen and elastin peptides to firm and boost the skin. Collagen is the natural protein in our body that ensures elasticity and regeneration of tissue, but its production slows down as we age. FILLMED Lift Serum however, helps boost the production of collagen to help tone the skin.
FILLMED Re Time Serum: Hello to Vitamin A (retinoic acid), our miracle mineral and the golden standard for visibly rejuvenated skin. What is this mineral well known for? It acts on the four signs of photo induced skin ageing; dryness, loss of elasticity, refinement of the skin and wrinkles by stimulating fibroblasts and the synthesis of collagen. Not only does it contain Vitamin A, but 3 important key ingredients – Hyaluronic Acid, Arg-Lys and Wakame 14GA. Allow me to make it simpler. Hyaluronic acid keeps water on the skin surface and acts as a water reservoir. Arg-Lys is a powerful skin relaxer for action on wrinkles, and Wakame 14GA (taken from seaweed) is an amazing skin rejuvenator. Because we do have a good dose of Vitamin A here, it is not recommended for pregnant or lactating mothers.
Not only a moisturiser, but also a fantastic primer for makeup! The 5HP Youth Cream, as the name suggests, is high in Vit B5 which acts as a skin repairer, improving hydration, reducing roughness and inflammation. The other 2 important ingredients are Hydroxyproline A (stimulating production of collagen +160% and improving the amount of skin cells by +96%) and Oleo Complex (containing Argan Oils and mango butter to give comfort and softness to dry skin.
