Health & Nutrition With Perricone MD
Fresh-faced beauty and no-make-up make-up is firmly back on the fashion menu for SS14 thanks to the likes of Balmain, Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana sending models down the runway with perfectly-prepped skin and just a veil of sheer coverage. The look is easily created on fresh, youthful skin, but as the subtle signs of ageing begin to appear, the process can become a little trickier; enter Perricone MD, the holistic skincare and beauty brand with a science-based approach to good skin.
1. Reduce inflammation with Perricone MD’s 3-tiered approach to skincare: an anti-inflammatory diet, targeted nutritional supplements and clinical skincare. Inflammation is more than just redness: Dr. Perricone believes that cellular inflammation may be the underlying cause of wrinkles. More than just redness visible to the naked eye, microscopic irritation that takes place within the cell leads to cellular damage that could be responsible for breakouts and skin damage.
2. Eat in abundance by choosing the correct foods. Load up on healthy proteins like grilled salmon, turkey breast and eggs, low-GI carbohydrates including porridge oats, anti-oxidant rich berries, dark leafy greens and good fats found in nuts and seeds. Perricone MD offer a free 3-Day Face Lift Diet that promises instant, skin-boosting results and is a perfect introduction to the 28-Day Diet.
3. Each step is as important as the next. Many of Perricone MD’s favourite ingredients, like chia and acai, can be found in both the skincare and supplements for a double hit of nutrients. DMAE, naturally found in salmon, has vital anti-ageing properties; it promotes a youthful complexion, but also aids brain function, so it is important to take it both topically and orally.
4. Prevention is the key to anti-ageing. Use the Gentle Cleanser in the morning and evening, followed by the Firming Facial Toner and finish with the Face Finishing Moisturiser to combat the subtle signs of ageing before they appear. Of course, Perricone MD products are designed to target and repair signs of ageing too; for a glowing complexion, Cold Plasma fights 10 levels of ageing and is patented to penetrate deeper in the skin, while Blue Plasma is perfect if you need a little extra help – it’s a one-of-a-kind non-acidic peel which means it can even be used in the morning as it won’t cause any extra sensitivity as a chemical peel would.
5. Better skin = less make-up. When you feel healthy on the inside, it shows on the outside: following the Perricone MD diet, taking the supplements and using the skincare products means your skin will naturally need less makeup so the sheer, colour-adapting formula of No Foundation Foundation offers perfect daily coverage and protects the skin from environmental aggressors.
