Three Anti-Ageing Ingredients For Younger-Looking Skin

Three Anti-Aging Ingredients For Younger-Looking Skin

As we age, we often focus our skincare regime on minimising fine lines, combating pigmentation, and decreasing dullness, reaching for products that repair and protect. These three highly effective natural skincare ingredients can help address the visible signs of ageing, while promoting collagen production, improving skin tone, and brightening the complexion.

Antioxidants to protect and defend

Antioxidants are critical to help slow down the appearance of ageing by protecting skin from free radical damage, caused by UV exposure, pollution, toxins, and other stressors of modern living. Our soothing Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream contains ingredients that are high in anti-ageing antioxidants to boost the skin’s protective barrier, and also features a natural source of Vitamin C to target elasticity.

Anti-ageing benefits of Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream

Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream firms and protects the delicate eye area thanks to an antioxidant extract sustainably sourced from Vinanza® Grape seeds, from sauvignon blanc grapes grown on Marlborough vineyards. Scientists discovered that the seeds of grapes grown in these vineyards have double the levels of polyphenolic antioxidants of grapes grown anywhere else in the world. The result in a potent dose of anti-ageing benefits in a luscious yet light cream.

The eye cream also contains kiwi seed oil from kiwifruit, which is very high in Vitamin C, to help stimulate collagen within the skin around the delicate eye area and keep it plumped and looking youthful. Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream has been scientifically shown to stimulate Type I collagen production in human fibroblast skin cells by up to 82%*.

Vitamin C to brighten and re-energise

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, famous for its anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory, and protective properties. Vitamin C anti-ageing benefits include skin brightening, a firmer, more even skin tone, and a reduction in fine lines and dark spots. Our ultra-light day cream, Diem Vitamin C Pigment-Correcting Water Cream, features a natural source of Vitamin C, along with peptides to encourage skin renewal.

Anti-ageing benefits of Diem Vitamin C Pigment-Correcting Water Cream

Diem features Kakadu plum, nature’s highest source of Vitamin C. Native to Australia’s tropical north, the Kakadu plum has developed a powerful self-defence system to protect itself from extremely high exposure to the sun’s harmful rays: a potent mix of antioxidant molecules to fight off sun-induced free radical attacks. As a result, Kakadu plum boasts up to 100 times the Vitamin C of oranges, the most ever recorded in nature.

Vitamin C from natural sources has a much higher bioavailability than synthetic Vitamin C, meaning your skin is more able to absorb the vitamin from a product. It’s also much gentler on skin than synthetic Vitamin C, which can irritate some skin types, so Diem is suitable for all skin types.

Diem Vitamin C Pigment-Correcting Water Cream also contains peptides to target pigmentation, plant-based hyaluronic acid for hydration, and bakuchiol, a natural alternative to Vitamin A, to further enhance its impressive anti-ageing properties.

Omega-rich oils to hydrate and repair

Omega-rich oils offer a wealth of benefits for your skin, including improved hydration, a reduction in inflammation and a softening of fine lines. Our ultra-rich anti-ageing moisturiser, Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream, boosts collagen, strengthens the skin barrier, and helps skin retain moisture for longer, resulting in a plumped, rejuvenated, more youthful-looking complexion.

Anti-ageing benefits of Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream

Avocado oil is one of the most nutrient-rich oils, helping to increase collagen production and revive tired, stressed skin. It boasts natural anti-ageing oils Omegas 3 and 9, and Vitamins A, B1, B2 and D, as well as a plant compound called sterolin, which helps support healthy collagen levels.

Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream has been scientifically shown to stimulate Type I collagen production in human fibroblast skin cells by up to 92%**, and clinically shown to reduce wrinkle appearance by 22% and reduce skin dryness by 85%†. It’s an anti-ageing dream cream!
