Natural Skincare : 10 Tips to Prevent Wrinkles

Thursday, November 12th, 2009
Amino acids from potentized fruits and vegetables go into making Organic Apoteke's advanced Natural Peptide Complex.

Amino acids from potentized fruits and vegetables go into making Organic Apoteke's advanced Natural Peptide Complex.

  1. Eat a well balanced diet that includes many and varied fruit and vegetable, preferably raw to provide your skin with the nutrients it needs.
  2. Drink at least 2 litres of water every day. Drink even when you don’t feel thirsty – your body needs plenty of water.
  3. Obtain fatty acids from cold pressed vegetable oils. Avoid saturated and animal fats.
  4. Do not smoke and avoid alcohol and caffeine. All of these substances dry out the skin, making it more vulnerable to wrinkling. In addition the smoking habit means pursing ones lips hundreds of times each day. The creases that form when you inhale form a cigarette often develop into wrinkles at a comparatively early age.
  5. Protect yourself from the sun. Always apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to all exposed areas of skin, regardless of the season of the weather.
  6. Get regular exercise. Like other organs of the body, skin gets its nourishment form the blood. Exercise increases the circulation of the blood to the skin. Products that stimulate microcirculation also increase blood flow to skin cells.
  7. Avoid alcohol based products as these dehydrate the skin, making it more vulnerable to wrinkling. This is the reason I ensured that all Organic Apoteke products are alcohol free.
  8. Avoid using harsh soaps which dehydrate the skin. They rob your skin of essential moisture which causes wrinkles. Use a liquid cream soap not solid creams or soaps as these contain hardened saturated fats that can go rancid rapidly and then create free radicals which cause premature wrinkling. Use an organic facial cleanser  which is moisturising and cleansing.
  9. Use on certified organic, anti-aging products and moisturisers that are able to penetrate into the dermal layer of the skin. It is in this layer that new cells are born. Ensuring the new skin cells are healthy is the only way to maintain younger looking skin.
  10. Use products high in natural peptide and amino acid complexes as these help rebuild collagen and elastin structures in the skin. Rasayana Rejuvenating Serum is an intense anti-aging serum that contains high percentages of natural amino acids and antioxidants.

Anti Aging, Organic Eye Cream – I’m Hooked

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

RECI have been known to tout the glory of getting older and embracing the aging process but I have a confession: I am addicted to the Organic Apoteke Rejuvenating Eye Cream. I don’t mind the gray hairs that are beginning to show here and there (though I secretly hope they grow in a nice streak), but the thought of no longer being as wide-eyed bothers me.

About a year ago, I thought: I am not as vain as I used to be, but it turns out I was just too busy to care. As soon as life mellowed a bit it, it turned out I was as vain as before. It grabbed me when looked in the mirror and I saw my age for the first time around my eyes. I decided that when it came to my eyes I would rather defy my age than embrace it and now I apply our eye cream whenever I think of it.

Thank goodness – I slammed on the brakes and kicked it into reverse: wide-eyed again!

I imagine myself many years from now, sitting on my rocking chair with my silver mane and the eyes of a thirty-something. I’ll take pleasure in knowing I did it without Botox! Yes I’ll still be able to smile – isn’t that what it’s all about?

Who is it for:

The skin around the eyes is so thin and delicate, it is never too soon to start protecting it by keeping it nourished, firm and smooth.

Why I love it
• Reduces Wrinkles in as little as two weeks
• Diminishes dark circles by strengthening the tiny capillaries under the eye
• Reduces under eye puffiness
• It is a bargain! Organic Apoteke products don’t aim to be the “budget” option. After all they use certified organic, fair trade ingredients in recycled glass bottles, and a patented production process, but I have to say it: at $27, this is the best value you’ll find.

Key Ingredients:
• Natural Peptide Complex boosts collagen to smooth and firm the skin
• Bilberry extract is a super antioxidant that helps to build capillary strength

What about you?

Do you defy your age or do you embrace it?

Maybe a bit of both?

Please share you views on aging and vanity.

Damask Rose provides antiaging benefits to your skin.

The anti aging benefits of a good facial cleanser are often overlooked.  Finding the right organic facial cleanser can be key to achieving the best antiaging skin care results.  The following advice may help …

What to look for in an organic facial cleanser:

• Gentle exfoliation (preferable from enzymes or lactic acid)

• Antioxidants: repair free radical damage at every stage of your anti aging routine

• High percentage of organic ingredients: free radicals are everywhere – don’t let your skin care product speed up the aging process

What to avoid in an antiaging cleanser:

• Alcohol: leads to increased age spots

• Harsh cleansers like sodium laurel sulfate: they dry out skin that is already prone to loosing moisture

• Petrochemicals: they speed up the aging process

Organic Apoteke’s Buttermilk Cleanser is an ideal cleanser for your anti aging regime:

  • It supplies antioxidants
  • It gently exfoliates with milk acids
  • Fades age spots
  • Smooths fine lines
  • Provides protection against moisture loss
  • Nourishes
  • Prepares the skin for maximum absorption of an anti wrinkle cream
  • Improves circulation (for younger looking skin)

Organic Apoteke offer a range of organic anti aging skincare including an effective organic facial cleanser and anti wrinkle cream.

Wrinkle Reduction and Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009
Collagen Chain: Gives skin its structure and stability

Collagen Chain: Gives skin its structure and stability

Why does skin start to look less radiant, dryer and more lined as we age? What are the causes?

As we grow older the subcutaneous fatty layer that lies under the skin becomes thinner, we often notice this in teenagers when we say they have lost their puppy fat. As we grow older we lose more and more of the fatty layer which nourishes the skin.  Skin cells in youth are tightly packed together, but due to environmental and dietary effects as we age, the spaces between cells can become larger; larger spaces increases water loss through the skin, something known as TEWL (Tran Epidermal Water Loss). TEWL is aggravated by skincare products that contain high amounts of alcohol; alcohol is a great steriliser, but increases water loss.

Furthermore collagen and elastin in the dermal layer of the skin starts to break down because the body absorbs less of this from our diet as we age. All of the above conditions cause the skin to appear less radiant more lined and dehydrated.

What are the appropriate skincare products to use to help these 3 areas? Here’s what you should be looking for, illustrated by a selection from our own range of all-natural products:

  • Deep moisturising with alcohol free products will help prevent dryness and skin will appear more radiant. Alcohol dehydrates the superficial skin cells, thus causing them to become less plump; this increases the spaces between them allowing essential water (moisture) to be lost and also toxic ingredients to enter. Organic Apoteke products are alcohol free.
  • Gentle exfoliating with a mild abrasive-free cleanser will get rid of dead skin cells; hence skin will appear more radiant.
  • Using a skin firming, anti-oxidant rich serum will help reduce the appearance of lines.

What ingredients should you be looking for to tackle these 3 areas?

A hugely important factor is how easily the treatment is absorbed into the skin. Oil and wax based products are not easily absorbed and just lay on the surface of the skin. It is a common misconception that anti-aging skin care products need to be thick, rich and oily to nourish the skin; they actually have to be light and easily absorbed, so they reach the parts of the skin that need it.

Ingredients good for smoothing lines and wrinkles:


Look for products and treatments that don’t themselves add problems – alcohol-free products and treatments are good.

Look for light, penetrating cosmetics, not thick waxy treatments.
