Our skins change with the seasons. Environmental factors such as sun exposure, hormonal changes, medication, chronic illness, tobacco, alcohol, stress and fatigue all have a huge impact on the skin. Biologically, the skin starts aging in women from the age of 25. Most commonly mature skins show signs of increased dryness, prominent wrinkles and sagging, due to the loss of elastin and collagen. While it is always necessary to adhere to expert advice to ensure that your skin stays healthy, it is vital that you listen to your body. If your skin feels tight and dry, then that could mean that you will probably need more moisture. If your skin becomes too oily and burns easily, then a treatment with less harsh products may be important – such as gel cleansers and clay masks. Acne-prone skin usually dries out in the summer and as the surface of the skin thickens, the pores begin to clog, resulting in breakouts. It is important to take care of the skin by also not using too many harsh products.
The best way to start is to understand the type of skin you have. That is whether it is dry, oily or dehydrated. As we age, our skin’s sebum production slows down; the metabolism of the cells is slower and the active number of fibroblasts reduce, including synthesis of collagen.
Kalahari has developed a range of innovative skincare solutions that consistently deliver exceptional results for all skin types. The products are phyto-effective formulations which are carefully created using superior botanical oils and extracts compounded with innovative and scientifically-based ingredients. The first step is to prepare the skin using a gentle milk cleanser, which is enriched with jojoba oil, shea oil and soothing rooibos tea extract. The natural ingredient gently removes impurities, while restoring the skin’s natural, protective lipid balance. The second step is to use the rich anti-oxidant toner with allantoin and Kalahari melon seed extract, which offers a dual action function to effectively balance the skin and leave it rejuvenated and hydrated. The essential daily moisturiser with botanical-based vitamins and anti-oxidants is then applied to the skin, which will help nourish and hydrate the skin. The evening moisturiser with argan oil and kigella Africana acts as a de-ager and helps to deeply moisturise and restore the skin whilst you sleep.
The kigela Africana extract found in Kalahari products help firm and tighten the skin. It is also effective in calming and soothing irritated skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Kalahari products are made from natural ingredients that are super moisturizing, rejuvenating and anti-ageing capabilities. A reduction of fine lines and wrinkles are noticeable, which also helps in the healing produce. The skin is noticeably soft, hydrated and the appearance of the skin is improved.
