Treat yourself to radiant skin with Skin Republic

Those with their finger on the pulse of the beauty world will know that sheet masks are here to stay and this month we are obsessing over the Brightening Vitamin C Face Mmask courtesy from of Skin Republic.
Skin Republic Brightening Face Mask_AED 22
Using a clever blend of Vitamins C, E and 7 plant extracts, tired and dull skin will be treated to an impressive dose of hydration that helps reduce the appearance of age spots and imperfections, brightening and evening out skin tone. The result is a gorgeously luminous glow, and skin that feels instantly revitalised.So what is the secret behind this wonder mask? We asked the beauty boffins at Skin Republic to share some of the added power ingredients that make the Brightening Vitamin C mask a force to be reckoned with.

Liquorice
Did you know that liquorice functions as an anti-inflammatory and has skin soothing capabilities?Studies have shown it has properties that help reduce redness and irritation that is usually liked to skin complaints such as acne, Rosacea and acne.

Coffee Bean Extract
It’s no secret that a cup of coffee will do the trick in waking you up in the morning but it can also have the same effect on your skin with caffeine being known to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is also a powerful antioxidant and excellent in helping the skin tackle harmful free radicals that cause wrinkles and sun spots. Caffeine helps the skin fight the free radicals and ultimately helps restore skin tone and texture.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C is pretty clever as an antioxidant that slows down the damage from those pesky free radicals, and when applied directly on the skin it can reduce the appearance of dark spots and sun damage.

Get the very best from Konjac

The benefits of the Konjac plant with The Konjac Sponge Company For the legions of fans in love with the secret weapon that is the Konjac sponge. They need no convincing about the wonders of this natural product but there is always something new to learn.
Konjac Facial Group 1
Firstly, what is the Konjac plant?
The Konjac plant is native to Asian countries including South Korea, Japan and China. Many people have compared it to a yam in terms of its looks and texture and it is incredibly versatile.With a history of over 1,500 years dating back to the sixth century in Japan when it was used as a medicinal food, it’s clear that it’s held its own over the years.

What makes the Konjac plant so special?
Apart from being 100% sustainable, the plant is rich in vitamins (not to show off, but a casual abundance of vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, E) and lots of essential protein. It is also jam packed with natural minerals such as zinc, copper, magnesium and iron.Konjac is made up of almost 90% water so it doesn’t hurt to injest some when you need a dose of hydration.

How can Konjac be used to boost your health?
Konjac is a fan with those keeping an eye on their weight as a small portion will make you feel full very quickly. Glucomannan (a sugar made from the root of the Konjac plant) will increase up to a whopping 200 times of its original volume after absorption. Konjac also balances salinity cleans the stomach and intestine and removes toxins from the body.
Diabetics in particular can benefit from Konjac as glucomannan has fantastic supporting effects such as lowering blood sugar and increasing insulin in the blood.

How can you bring Konjac into your beauty regime?
