Given our hectic schedules, packed with everything from meetings to grocery shopping and gym sessions to hot dates, it’s not surprising that we’re often sleep-deprived. Unfortunately, lack of sleep can wreak havoc on our skin, causing a dull and tired look that nobody wants!
Luckily, ELEMIS released their Peptide 24/7 range, which is inspired by the body’s remarkable inner clock, causing the skin to experience different processes at different times of the day. Peptides are chains of amino acids that come from yeast extracts, and this ELEMIS range is made with Peptide4, a group of four of them. What’s more, the range is created with unique seed oils, from plants grown especially for ELEMIS in the UK, and which contain vital ingredients for healthy skin.
These are the three products from the Peptide 24/7 range that we swear by:
1. Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil (R1 100 for 30ml)
With this gem in your beauty routine, your skin will enjoy the hydration of a moisturiser and the protection of an oil. It includes the cold-pressed seed oil from night scented stock, a bloom that radiates its sweet fragrance only in the evening. The flower flourishes in the English countryside of East Anglia and is loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin E. To add to that, Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil contains nourishing perilla seed oil.
2. Peptide4 Recovery Eye Cream (R915 for 15ml)
Thanks to this cream, you can kiss those designer undereye bags goodbye! It’s formulated with cold-pressed seed oil from Star Avensis- a star-shaped bloom that’s an excellent natural vegetable source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. The flower’s seed oils have been proven to make fine lines less noticeable, and increase the feeling of elasticity in the skin surrounding the eyes. The product also boasts hawkweed and daisy extracts to lighten dark shadows.
3. Peptide4 Thousand Flower Facial Mask (R890 for 75ml)
This magic mask has a matte texture like no other and will glide across your skin like velvet. It’s made with sustainably sourced Nordic peat, consisting of several fallen herbs and flowers. These balance the skin’s acidity levels since they are rich in vitamins, minerals and amino and fatty acids. Plus, sweet clover softly tones and tightens the skin. To top it all off, a blend of willow tree extracts, lactic acid and Brazilian black clay, tenderly exfoliates the skin to leave it smooth and glowing.
