Sea Buckthorn Berry Skincare | The Guide – Omorovicza

Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil is derived from the Sea Buckthorn Berry, found across China, Russian, northern Europe and Canada. These berries have been harvested for years as they are so nutrient rich, and as a result are used within both food and skincare to boost the health of skin, nails and hair.

These nutrients include Vitamins A, C, E as well as Omega 7 and carotenoids (organic pigments that are a vital part of our anti-oxidant defence), making Sea Buckthorn Berry a super important skincare ingredient.

Ingredient Focus – Edelweiss Flowers

The last time I thought about this flower and indeed whenever I think of this flower I automatically think of the musical The Sound of Music, which I have now seen about 200 times.  Remembering the von Trapp children and their father Captain von Trapp aka Christopher Plummer, singing the melodic harmonies of that now familiar song – Edelweiss edelweiss…..every morning you greet me…they sing and now it truly will greet me each morning when I use my new Firming Neck Cream by Omorovicza.

Edelweiss is a powerful ingredient within the new Firming Neck Cream and a natural protector against the signs of ageing. We reveal why this magical flower packs a punch:

How To Apply Neck Cream | An Illustrated Guide – Omorovicza

How to apply neck cream and care for your décolletage

Caring for your neck and décolleté is much more than just a passing trend; it should be a part of your everyday skincare routine. Why? Similarly to the face, the neck and chest is susceptible to the effects of gravity, expression and sun damage but more so as the ski is thinner and more delicate. Therefore this area is likely to age quicker than the face, causing deep wrinkles and sagging below the jaw line, the dreaded ‘tech neck’. What can you do about it? Never underestimate the importance of a neck cream, regularly applying it is key to combating early signs of ageing, allowing you to maintain a youthful appearance from head to toe.

However, neck cream application is as much about when you apply it as how you apply it. Read on to discover our illustrated guide to caring for the neck and décolleté.

Health of the baby boomer generation – FLexercise

England’s Chief Medical Officer has published a report on the health of adults aged 50-70, also known as the ‘baby boomers’. In 2014, 8% of the total population in England were aged 75 and over, this number is expected to rise to 13.1% by 2039.

While this generation benefits from advances made in life expectancy and mortality reduction, there are several opportunities for health improvement. Lifestyle factors such as physical activity and tobacco consumption, modifiable risk factors such as obesity and overweight are all relevant considerations.

Data on the lifestyles of this generation are presented in the report revealing that physical activity levels were low in this generation, and they are less active than those of the same age ten years ago.

The Importance of Skin Fitness

If like me you overindulged at Christmas, too much chocolate, cake and prosecco, then it will start affecting your skin fitness. Blemishes, dull complexion becomes evident, coupled with the cold drying winter weather, it’s time to take action.

This can often mean doing the thing you most want to avoid – exercising. I have written many times about the benefits of keeping fit, particularly as we get older and it is essential in restoring skin to its healthy glow.

Here is what we recommend at Omorovicza:

Skin fitness is essential to achieve healthy, glowing skin. But did you know that physical exercise can improve your complexion, and is one of the best remedy for wrinkles, dull skin, acne and dry skin…? We reveal why in the next post in our Skin Fitness series.

Regular exercise boosts your blood circulation and improves the oxygenation of skin. Enhanced blood flow helps the skin to regenerate and toxins are efficiently removed from the body. Think of it as cleansing from the inside.

Taking exercise can help improve the texture and elasticity of your skin. It boosts the production of collagen, which helps your skin repair itself subsequently delaying the process of ageing and subsequent dreaded wrinkles.

It has been proven that exercise can help reduce the stress hormone cortisol. This hormone can exacerbate skin conditions such as eczema and acne.

When you work out, your skin receives a dose of oxygenated blood which gives you an instant glow as your skin is hydrated and can “breathe” properly. You feel more relaxed when working out, so your complexion instantly appears less tense. When do you start your skin fitness regime?   Photo credit: Rina Kanehara © Laurent Liotardo / Post-production Nik Pate

How to Look Younger at 60 | LIVESTRONG.COM

Having just turned 60 myself, I often find myself thinking about my health and wellbeing, as I want to ensure I am fit and healthy into my 70s and beyond.

I work in the Beauty Industry so always wonder if I am still looking as smart as my younger colleagues or am looking a little long in the tooth.

I found these tips helpful, particularly as I see many 60 year olds trying to hide away – behind baggy clothes, behind heavy make-up or just staying more at home because they don’t feel confident enough to go out.

These tips are really quite handy and I know I shall be checking a few of them off my list this week, starting with healthy diet and exercise. A walking weekend it is in the clean fresh air of Richmond Park.

In addition to eating well, I also recommend regular outdoor exercise, walking is just the ticket. Even in the wind and rain, wrap up well and off you go, along the river bank, in the local park or along a coastal path. Fill your lungs with fresh air and help oxygenate every cell in your body.
