Charlotte Vøhtz was a pioneer for the organic skin care industry when she launched her beauty brand Green People back in 1997, but it was on turning 50 that she started to formulate her signature Age Defy+ by Cha Vohtz range, to address the needs of mature skin.
Here she guides us through the most effective organic ingredients for building a natural, anti-ageing summer night skin care routine.
REFRESH WITH ANTIOXIDANTS
An antioxidant-rich sun cream is an essential for a summer’s day, defending the skin against ageing sun damage. However, even when the sun isn’t shining, you can’t be complacent about sun protection as skin-ageing free radicals can linger within the skin long after the sun has gone down.
Antioxidant-rich ingredients help to address free radical activity so always thoroughly cleanse the skin before bed using a hydrating cream cleanser made with natural, antioxidant-packed ingredients.
Green People uses Aloe Vera to formulate its Age Defy+ by Cha Vohtz Purify & Hydrate Cream Cleanser and this plant-based skin soother is also rich in hydrating natural antioxidant oils including Cranberry, Rosehip and Pomegranate. Sweep a little of this synergistic blend over your face and neck before bed and skin will feel fresh, soft and armed with the antioxidants it needs to fights off skin-ageing free radicals come the morning.
REPLENISH WITH BAICALIN
Spending too long outside in spells of sunny, warm weather can dehydrate the skin making fine lines and wrinkles look more pronounced. Thick, richly-hydrating moisturisers can be too heavy for the summer months but a lightweight serum will sink deeper into the skin to reach and replenish the areas where wrinkles form.
To best support skin cell regeneration, opt for a serum containing Baicalin. This remarkable natural ingredient helps to repair the skin from a cellular level and is a key ingredient in Green People’s Age Defy+ Hydrate & Renew Serum.
REST & RESTORE WITH AN ORGANIC SLEEP MASK
Skin regeneration mainly happens overnight whilst you rest so get plenty of shut-eye and support your skin while you sleep with an intensely nourishing night cream.
Ideally a face mask should be applied 2-3 times a week and exfoliating the skin beforehand will help your skin to best absorb the natural ingredients in your skin care.
To make your evening skin care regime effortlessly easy, Green People developed its Age Defy+ by Cha Vohtz Hydra-Glow Sleep Mask. The silk-textured cream face mask is suitable for mature and sensitive skin and contains 35 beauty-enhancing actives including collagen-supporting Green Macro Algae and skin-firming Caesalpinia spinosa. It’s also fragranced with citrus notes which conjure up a calming sensation and help you to relax.
The skin around the eyes is exceptionally thin and delicate so avoid applying a mask to the eye areas. Instead, apply Green People’s Age Defy+ by Cha Vohtz Line Eraser Serum to gently deliver the natural anti-ageing ingredients mature skin needs to feel plump, firm and bright come morning.
