We have all had birthdays, anniversaries and celebratory moments to rejoice in. And we have all showered our loved ones with bouquets of flowers to mark these celebrations or been the recipients of the same at some point or other in our lives. Everytime that we receive fresh flowers, you would have noticed that they tend to wither away in a few days. That is almost like inevitable. Every fresh flower has a shelf life. It is a bud to begin with, blossoms beautifully into a full blown, fresh flower and once having reached the zenith of its youth, gradually starts shriveling away to its finale. Our skin and rather even body follows the same life trajectory as a flower. The skin is soft and delicate at birth, blossoms into its youthful potency in the coming years. And just like the petals of the flower, gradually ages and languishes to its peroration in the old age. There is no escape to this aging process, neither for the flower nor for our skin.
But there is certainly a way out to prolong the advent of aging signs and even keep the flower blossoming in all its glory for a longer period of time. If the flowers are neglected and left unattended to, they would desiccate and lose their vitality sooner than expected. Rather, if tended to properly, we would be able to keep them fresh and vivacious for much longer. Trimming the ends, pulling off the degenerated leaves and foliage and placing the bunch of flowers in a vase with fresh water could be just some of the simple ways. Water in the vase needs to be changed every other day and the stems be cut off so that the hydration reaches right up to the flowers and keeps them fresh and alive.
Our skin is nothing different from these flowers. Though, aging and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is inevitable, it is very much possible to delay their onset. It might sound dreamy, but it is possible to have a youthful, glowing, flawless skin for as long as we want in our lives. Just like the flowers, our skin also needs proper tendering to and in time care.
‘BEAUTIFUL SKIN COMES TO THOSE WHO WORK HARD FOR IT.’
Just as the flora needs regular trimming and eliminating the degenerated, similarly our skin needs cleansing, scrubbing and exfoliation for a deeper cleaning and sloughing away of the dead cells. The pores need to be kept clean and tightened. And what water is to the flower, humectants, emollients and moisturizing agents are to the skin. It is a deeply misleading notion that oily skin does not need moisturization. It needs just as much hydration as any other skin type, just that the nature of the ingredients needs to be better fine tuned to the oily, acne-prone skin type.
WAYS TO LOCK THAT YOUTHFUL, GLOWING SKIN FOREVER
The magic doesn’t lie in makeup, filters or any artificial youth restoring implants or Botox, but in a consistent, mindful daily skincare routine. Yes, you heard us right. If one is mindful of their AM-PM skincare regime and regular facial treatments, they can achieve the skin of their dreams and keep it for as long as they want. Achieving a clear, healthy skin is not as much of an elusive phenomenon as it is made out to be. Of course, there are other factors that contribute to reaching these levels of excellence like nutrient rich diet, regular physical exercise, alleviated stress levels and practicing mindfulness and spirituality in day-to-day life. But external application of natural skincare products holds a very distinguished importance to this well-rounded approach.
Our skin cells need to be fed consistent levels of nutriments and hydration to keep them nourished, glowing and in optimum health. For this we suggest using a few of our stellar skincare products religiously both in the morning time and before going to bed at night.
1. GLO RADIANCE HYDRA SKIN CLEANSER – A micellar water formulation that cleanses skin without the need to rinse with water. Organic ingredients neutralize the toxins and super clean skin pores, lending an overall flawlessness to the skin texture. An ideal skin clarifying water formulation that can be used as many times in the day to clean off impurities and dirt.
2. CUCUMBER/ ROSE WATER TONERS – Skin experts strongly advocate the inclusion of a toner in our skincare regime to keep our skin looking youthful forever. An effective toner tightens pores and also enhances the tone and complexion of the skin. They say “those who use a toner never seem to age”. Depending on the skin type, choose between our Classic Cucumber toner for oily skin and Classic Rose Toner for dry skin type and dab it every time before you use a moisturizer on a well-cleansed skin.
3. EXFOLIATORS/ SCRUBS – Just as plants need to be rid of the tampering weeds that hinder growth, the same way our skin needs to be unloaded off the luster-dampening dead cells. That way the skin maintains its healthy, youthful glow. Chose from our wide array of skin exfoliators and scrubs suiting your particular skin type – Glo Radiance Skin Purifying Polisher, Glo Radiance Cell Renewal Exfoliant Scrub, Jasmine Scrub, D-Tan Face Scrub.
4. CELL RENEWING DAY CREAM – Hydrate is the watch word. To cease your skin from aging or exhibiting any signs of skin aging, experts recommend feeding it with a s much moisturization as possible.

Enriched with Shea Butter, Aloe Barbadensis extracts, Almond Oil, Lavender Oil and Mango Seed Butter, the cream is best suited for all skin types.
5. FACIAL OIL – We all love facial oils, don’t we? They keep the skin luminous, glowing and rich. For a youthful skin, our Glo Radiance Facial oil is your best bet. This cult Facial Oil is a ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of our skincare products. An enriched amalgamation of emollient oils, this formula reaches into the deepest skin layers and repairs and heals the flaws from within. Non-greasy formula that squishes a magic wand giving you a supple, firm, and radiant skin within a couple of applications.
6. NIGHT SKINCARE – No skin care regime is complete without a well drawn out night care ritual. Trust on our Glo Radiance Repairing Night Cream to replenish your skin and energize it deeply for that youthful firmness, the first thing you notice in the morning. And, at the cost of sounding monotonous and repetitive, we can’t reiterate the vitality of a sun protective lotion. No matter how many times we put this point forth, but applying a thick coat of a sunscreen is sacrosanct to preserving your skin.
As an advanced step in skincare, concern-specific facial treatments are what one needs to supplement our skin with that extra dose of care. Our ‘YOUTH-RESTORING TREATMENT’ is one of its kind avant-garde 7- step facial that addresses the concerns of an aging skin deeply and wards of any signs of premature aging like sagging skin, wrinkles, age spots or blemishes. It might not be an exaggeration to claim that the facial actually restores youth and blesses the skin with firmness, bounce and a flawless glow. The treatment is a professional facial procedure and is only available at the salons.
It is an undeniable fact that we all will age with time. Our bodies, skin, hair, everything will reflect the signs too. But just like a nutritious diet and a regular exercise regime are vital to putting away any age related ailments, similarly an effective skincare can actually prolong the appearance of any skin aging signs.
