Kiss Dull Skin Goodbye!

Dominate dull skin and get your glow on!
It’s time to tackle dull, lacklustre skin…and we’ve got some great tips and a few secret weapons (a.k.a. products) to get your skin glowing again!
First, the bad news. Dull skin is often caused by a combination of things—dehydration, environmental stressors, not exfoliating, stress, not using a daily moisturiser and much more.
Now, the good news! A few simple changes can have you well on your way to combating dullness and boasting the glowing, bright, beautiful skin you deserve!
Skin-Revitalizing-Essence_Blog_June_2020
Dehydration plays a significant role in a dull complexion. Why? Well, when we fail to hydrate properly, we’re practically welcoming skincare issues like wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
A great way to hydrate and replenish the skin on a daily basis (in addition to drinking the recommended 8 glasses of water a day), is to reach for an essence! We love Skin Revitalizing Essence™ —a lightweight miracle water created with the optimal mix of hydrating, skin-replenishing, anti-ageing ingredients that smooth and soften wrinkles for brighter, more radiant skin.
Did you know that environment stressors can create cracks in the skin’s surface? Yuck! This enhances the appearance of dullness, discolouration and more. Rather than suffer with lacklustre skin, brighten things up with C. Radiance™ Illuminating Serum. Not only is it age-defying, but it is infused with 15% Vitamin C and essential antioxidants designed to brighten your skin. Your skin will appear radiant and bright while reducing dark spots and blemishes.
And if you’re looking to help keep the fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven complexion at bay and bring forth a smoother, more youthful version of you, get your hands on our supercharged Rewind™ Age Control Nectar. This skincare favourite floods the skin with a reconditioning dose of active ingredients.

We’ve Got the Word on Skincare

Vital skincare terms you NEED to know!
Everyone loves stepping out into the world feeling incredible from head-to-toe! We like calling that feeling your MONAT Glow, and with the launch of MONAT Skincare, so many of you are lighting up your neighbourhoods and our social media timelines. But before you get to sharing and posting your vibrant glow with friends and family, you’ve got to know the lingo!

Caffeine_blog-1

Caffeine
Caffeine isn’t just for giving you a boost in the morning! It’s also an important ingredient in many skincare products. Caffeine constricts blood vessels to reduce redness and puffiness. This can help improve the appearance of puffiness around the eyes, as well reduce the appearance of cellulite. Ah, yes…music to our ears!
Hyaluronic Acid
Restoring properties naturally produced by your body is essential to a healthy skincare regime. Hyaluronic Acid is one of those properties. It’s actually a sugar molecule naturally found in your skin and helps increase moisture content and prevents water loss. If you’re interested in keeping your skin radiantly hydrated for a softer, smoother appearance, look for products infused with Hyaluronic Acid, which is a key active ingredient in our Rewind™ Age Control Nectar.
Micellar Water
If you’re a haircare nerd like us, you’re probably familiar with micellar water. It’s a key ingredient in a number of products known for deeply cleansing with a mild touch. Micellar water is loaded with cleansing molecules and is also effective as a makeup remover prior to washing your face.

Be-Gentle™-Creamy-Cleanser_blog_nov_7_2019

Peptides
Peptides are tiny protein fragments that promote collagen growth and repair skin. Like hyaluronic acid, peptides are already present in your skin, so the right skincare product infused with peptides gives you a power boost often leading to the smoothing of expression lines and wrinkles. Peptides are an active ingredient in Be Gentle™ Creamy Cleanser. Try it out and put some pep in your step!

Plant-Stem-Cells_blog-1

Plant Stem Cells
Mother Earth provides many gifts! Plant Stem Cells are one of them. Plant Stem Cells boost collagen and have HUGE healthy ageing benefits for your skin! Plant Stem Cells extracted from Moss are featured in many of our skincare products and offer a powerhouse of benefits to help skin look brighter and more youthful.

Oild-drop

REJUVENIQE S™
This one probably looks familiar. REJUVENIQE S™ is a MONAT-exclusive ingredient featured in many of our haircare products. The formulation includes the revitalizing powers of 17 botanical oils and other essential oils that hydrate, plump and nourish your skin! REJUVENIQE S™ is featured in many of our new skincare products including Be Balanced™ Lightweight Moisturizer!
VItamin C / KAKADU PLUM
Vitamin D gets all the attention when it comes to skincare, but don’t forget about Vitamin C! Kakadu Plum is an Australian-native superfood containing a high concentration of Vitamin C and soothing anti-fungal properties. Kakadu Plum has benefits for all skin types which includes brightening skin, reducing hyperpigmentation and protecting skin from impurities found in the environment.
So now you’re full of skincare terminology and recommendations you can share these with your friends and family! Plus you know exactly what type of ingredients to look for to achieve the best results!

Glowing Skin From the Inside Out

Find Your Inner Glow Sippin’ on Smoothies
Skincare Smoothie Sunday? Yes, Please!
Skincare Smoothie Sunday is our favourite! Who doesn’t love a refreshing smoothie to start the day or as an energy boost? Fresh fruit and veggies are nature’s produce after all…so taking advantage of their powerful impact on our skin from the inside out is a no-brainer.
If you aren’t already setting aside time each week to show yourself a little extra love from the inside out with some healthy treats—especially ones that double as an amazing boost for healthy skin—then the time is now!
When you think of skincare, you probably think of your daily routine of cleansers, essence, serums and moisturisers. Of course these are vital to obtaining and retaining healthy-looking, beautiful skin. But remember…you are what you eat! So be sure to feed your skin right!
It’s All Good_2
It’s All Good
So what is it exactly that makes a smoothie so great for your skin? There are so many benefits to feeding your glow other than the taste bud bliss.
First, you’ll be using fresh fruits and veggies, which are an incredible and natural source of vitamins and nutrients. Artificial ingredients please step away from the blender! And forget about adding any processed sugars to your blend, too. Fruit has natural sugars built right in, so no need for anything extra!
Most of the ingredients you will use are compliments of Mother Nature—and are a great source of antioxidants—something your skin will definitely thank you for. Take raspberries for example, not only can they protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun, they can reduce signs of ageing and help treat inflammation. Sign us up!
Nourishing your body with the essential nutrients of a homemade smoothie has never been tastier! This delicious Glowing Skin Smoothie recipe made from raspberries, dates, bananas and flax seeds. It’s a fan fave!
Glowing-Skin-Smoothie
Glowing Skin Smoothie
Ingredients

  • 2 cups water (500 milliliters)
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 6 dates
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. It’s as simple as that!
Of course you don’t have to limit your smoothies to Sundays, but it’s a great start to a new and tasty habit designed to help give you that incredible glow you’ve been craving…from the inside out!
Share a pic of your Skincare Smoothie on social with the #MONATSkin and #HealthySkinRevolution.
