NAKIN SKIN CARE - TRIED AND TESTED BY SARA DARLING
With the summer that we’ve been having, my skin is getting pretty dry and weathered. Even though I use sunscreen (natch) my delicate visage has never been in and out of the salty sea so much!
So a bit of TLC on my face is just what I needed... Cue a delivery of Nakin age-defying face creams, which smell just as fresh as they look with classy, minimalist packaging. Promising natural skincare that is designed for sensitive skin AND backed by science, I was keen to give the lotions and potions a whirl.
I am a big believer that Mother Nature knows best, and the small but perfectly formed range of eight essential products are stuffed full of familiar sounding ingredients. The brand takes the best of Green Tea (an antioxidant), Pomegranate (great for sun damage) and Rosemary Leaf Extract (to protect collagen and essential elastin fibres) but I was most intrigued by Hydrolyzed Hibiscus Extract (known as 'natural botox' thanks to its powerful anti-wrinkle properties).
Lightweight, and easy to use (you don’t need much from the pump dispenser), I tried Nakin Natural Anti-Ageing Performance Face Serum. Rich in hyaluronic acid – the latest buzzword in beauty, it promised to hydrate and plump ageing skin. With all the weather damage I had encountered, I am always keen to boost my skin’s hydration, and tackle my sun lines.
Light and easily absorbable, it is advisable to target areas you want to focus on, so I honed in on my laughter lines around my eyes, and smile lines! There’s no denying I like a giggle… After a couple of weeks twice daily use, I could actually see my face looking softer with a less liney. No more tired and dull skin for me!
With face oil containing, jojoba, this is perfect for calming and hydrating and soaked in without feeling greasy; And the Active Dew face cream for everyday use left my skin plump, super soft and hydrated- which didn’t make me feel quite so guilty when i went out for a sunbathe.
The holistic approach of the products means that all products are cruelty free with no nasty chemicals. Going back to basics and using the traditional remedies such as Pomegranate, Cassia, Baobab and Argan, is the perfect combination for boosting hydrated skin, and preventing signs of ageing without a needle or a super high price tag!
