Have you ever wondered why, when you feel tired on the inside it often shows on the outside too?
A dull complexion, dark circles and seemingly deeper lines can all develop on your skin when you’ve had less than those optimum 8 hours of sleep, no matter how religiously you stick to your skincare routines.
Your skin follows natural circadian rhythms, creating waves of activity which trigger cells to perform important processes at specific times of the day, with skin renewal being boosted during the night. The timing of these processes is vital for skin balance, health and, ultimately, achieving that elusive glow that we’re all aiming for.
However, it’s a fact of modern life that our circadian rhythms don’t always stay perfectly on track. The harsh environment, rising pollution levels, UV rays, disruptive sleep patterns and late-night screen time (yes, we’re talking about those bedside scrolling sessions) can all have an effect on your circadian rhythm, causing it to become out of sync. As a result, you’re likely to wake up with a complexion that looks tired.
So, what’s the answer? Cue Peptide 24/7: the latest skin-balancing collection from ELEMIS.
This pioneering collection cleverly kicks your complexion back into sync. Combining skin-synchronising Peptide4 technology with ELEMIS’ world-exclusive plant oils, Birch Sap and nutrient-dense Peat, this powerful trio of products helps to visibly restore, replenish and renew the appearance of tired-looking skin through the 24hr cycle.
“It doesn’t take much to disrupt our natural circadian rhythms; travel, lack of sleep and modern living can easily throw us out of sync. 20% of skin cell structure is determined by our miraculous body clocks, and so we created our Peptide 24/7 range to support the skin’s natural processes, around-the-clock.” explains Noella Gabriel, Co-Founder and creator of ELEMIS Therapies.
