The human body is an amazing and complex organism. If you provide appropriate fuel, it can replenish and rejuvenate itself. The founders of the Astara skin care range believe that the body works best when it is powered by raw ingredients that contain all of the vital nutrients required to support the formation and renewal of living cells. Every item in this natural range is produced from high quality botanical ingredients. During the manufacturing process, temperatures are kept below 40.5 degrees Celsius or 105 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure that potent enzymes are preserved.
Launched in 1997, Astara is a young, vibrant brand that delivers highly effective cleansers, toners, and moisturisers. The company listens carefully to customer feedback and has developed new products, such as the Green Papaya Nutrient Mask, in response to customer demand. Almost immediately after it was introduced to the market, the Astara range began attracting celebrity followers. Over the years, Hugh Jackman, Tina Fey, Liv Tyler and supermodel Iman have all been known to use these luxurious botanical products.
Astara skin care products are suitable for both men and women. Whether your skin is dry or oily, young or mature, you can build a skin care regimen that will help to nurture and nourish your complexion. Begin by removing all of the impurities and dead skin cells that can clog the skin, making it appear dull. Astara’s aloe-based Daily Refining Scrub is gentle enough to be used every day. With regular exfoliation, the skin is better able to absorb the nutrients contained in moisturisers. Daily exfoliation is particularly important for mature skins. When skin is young, cell renewal takes place every 24 to 28 days. As we grow older this process slows down and skin cells can take 40 to 50 days to be renewed. Sloughing off the unwanted cells that cling to the surface of the skin sends a message to the lower layers of the skin to create fresh, new cells.
Moisturisers should be added to cleansed skin every morning to protect and hydrate the complexion. The botanical ingredients contained in Astara help to shield the skin from environmental aggressors, such as pollution and over-cooled or over-heated air. In the evening, apply a night cream that is rich in vitamins and antioxidants that can replenish and repair your skin while you sleep. The delicate eye area requires special care, which can be provided by Astara’s gentle but effective Botanical Eye Treatment.
For those seeking a more youthful complexion, Astara offers multiple anti-ageing treatments to reduce wrinkles, firm the skin and increase skin elasticity. Try an age-defying masque or moisturiser, containing vitamin A, C and E, from the Astara Activated or Astara Antioxidant range.
