“Keeping your skincare routine simple is key”, says Virginie Claire of V.Claire Natural
Cosmetics.

Alison Canavan is constantly on the go, as are most women juggling it all while trying to
find time to take care of themselves. I have been looking after Alison’s skin care for the
past two years and simplicity is all there is time for! While putting The Full 360 Series
together, promoting, studying and travelling her skin had become tired and dull. Knowing
she will not have the time or patience for using numerous products I recommend two.
PHYT’S Concentré Reviderm for day and PHYT’S Serum Antirides at night.

Sallow skin can lose its lustre quite easily. PHYT’S Reviderm oxygenating line specialises in
bringing radiance to a dull, tired skin. Its content of Chlorophyll from Alfalfa, Avocado,
Kombu Algae and Acerola (high in Vitamin C), energises, revitalises and brightens the
complexion. Chlorophyll carries oxygen to the cells and encourages microcirculation,
where it provides powerful anti-oxidant effects.

CONCENTRE REVIDERM Skin

        PHYT’S Concentré Reviderm is available from the PHYT’S Online Store

 

Serum Antirides is a highly nutritional phyto-complex, rich in nourishing vegetable oils
(Wheatgerm, Castor Oil) and regenerating essential oils and herbal extracts (Rosemary,
Thyme, Cypress) shows its full strength on wrinkles and slack. It reduces the number,
surface area and length of wrinkles for smooth and visibly younger skin. It is important to
massage in well with fingertips to stimulate connective tissue and circulation.

SÉRUM ANTI-RIDES Skin

                   PHYT’S SÉRUM ANTIRIDES is available from the PHYT’S Online Store

The key to having good skin being consistent and committed to a good skincare routine.

As I have been facialist and skincare specialist for over 20 years I get asked quite a lot by
my clients ‘Virginie, Why should I choose a natural skincare or makeup?’

Virginie Claire Group

Virginie Claire (Right)

My answer is simply ‘Why not choose a natural quality product if you have the choice?’ It is up to us to take control of our skin through:

  • Consistency and Commitment
  • Ingredients
  • Knowledge & Education

There can be a lot of confusion and concern regarding ingredients in our cosmetics, one of
the most talked about is parabens. Here I hope to inform not alarm you on what they are and why they are used in cosmetics. So you can choose your products based on an informed choice. Virginie, V Claire Natural Cosmetics.



What are parabens?

Parabens have been in use since the 1950, and are frequently added to cosmetics to prevent the growth of bacteria. The majority of cosmetics use a combination of them because they are cheap and effective.

What are parabens made of?

Parabens are man made, they are a chemical compound of para-hydroxybenzoic acid. They regroup into methylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben.

What are the effect of parabens on our wellbeing?

Parabens are xenoestrogens, meaning they mimic oestrogens in the body and unsetle the body natural hormones. Also, they can be stored in the body, resulting in a cumulative effect that can damage health overtime.

This overload of oestrogens has been linked to health issues such as breast cancer and reproductive disfunction, including early onset of puberty and reduced sperm count.

What is the natural alternative to parabens?

Many ingredients can be used to preserve cosmetics such as:

Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic acid, glycerin, sorbic acid, essential oils such as thyme, oregano, rosemary, clove cinnamon, tea tree and many more.

Using a few parabens is harmless, but using a multple amount of cosmetcs including parabens may afect your wellbeing.

Take control of your skin and wellbeing by KNOWING THE INGREDIENTS your cosmetic is made of. Be curious and ask questions, then you can make the right choice.
