Our anti-aging philosophy is a total lifestyle
approach to reducing the effects of aging in a natural and non-invasive way.
To obtain and retain long lasting visible improvements to your skin, our anti-aging philosophy relies on you to follow a healthy lifestyle (see our article “How to slow down skin aging”), and on Van Den Broek Life to provide you with the best natural and actively working anti-aging
skincare, and the instruction videos that allow you to follow a regular facial massage routine.
This article is about the role of our skincare products in our anti-aging philosophy; we will explain where our skincare products have been developed and anufactured, and how are skincare products
work together with facial massage.
Our bio skincare was developed in the Netherlands and manufactured by our partner who also develops and manufactures professional skincare products that are used in salons and spas.
Our skincare products, and the way that they have been developed and manufactured, comply with all the rules and regulations of the Netherlands Food and Products Safety Authority, which is part of the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality. All skincare sold in the European Union has to comply with Regulation (EC) N° 1223/2009 on cosmetic products, which is the main regulatory framework for finished cosmetic products when placed on the EU market.
Our bio skincare line is created using the best natural ingredients, substituting synthetic ingredients for natural alternatives. We use organic certified ingredients and natural extracts. Our skin care line is free of: PEGs – sulphates silicones – parabens and mineral oils. Parabens are widely used as preservatives in cosmetics. According to the European Commission’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Products, certain parabens, may disrupt the endocrine system and could cause reproductive and developmental disorders. PEGs are a family of conditioning and cleaning agents that go by many names. These synthetic chemicals are considered a probable human carcinogen, which readily penetrates the skin.
We use natural and organic ingredients that are gentle to the skin and that have an active function in the product. Our ingredients are meant to sooth, hydrate, nourish, protect, rejuvenate or otherwise have an anti-aging effect. We believe that if an ingredient does not serve a clear purpose, it should not be in the product. We don’t use empty ingredients just to fill the product quantity. We also limit the use of comedogenic ingredients that can clog pores and induce acne, which make our products suitable for most skin types.
Whichever skincare product you are considering, we always recommend that your check the ingredient list to find out what is really in your skincare product. Unfortunately, the names used are often long and difficult to pronounce, but luckily there are many good websites in many languages that can help with identifying ingredients and give a simple explanation of what they are and how they work.
Make sure you check the ingredient list of your skincare and check for synthetics, parabens, and PEGs.
Our skincare products are activated and enhanced by our facial massages
Facial massage is not a new phenomenon. It has been used by people in different cultures since ancient times. For example, a Chinese document of the III century BC already talks about the use of massage therapy. We can also read about facial massage in the literature of ancient Greece, Persia, Japan and India.
There are many benefits to gain from following a regular facial massage routine. Facial massage can help to sculpt and tone your face by releasing tension in the muscles in your face. Tension in the muscles in your face can for instance cause frown wrinkles and crow’s feet. Relaxation of the muscles in the neck and upper body can also release muscle tension that could cause headaches and migraines. Facial massage stimulates blood flow in the skin which makes your skin look healthy, hydrated and glowing. Facial massage can also help to reduce puffiness by stimulating lymphatic drainage.
Combining facial massage with our anti-aging skincare offers the best possible solution to natural anti-aging. Facial massage prepares the skin, muscles and lymphatic system for our skin care products, and by using our skincare products during the facial massage, you help to stimulate the skin’s absorption of actively working anti-aging ingredients.
The two best moments during the day to perform facial massage are of course the morning and the evening. Posture exercises and neck stretches can be done at any time of the day, and we recommend to doing these daily as they have amazing anti-aging and overall health benefits.
In the morning your facial massage and skin cleansing routine can be a wonderful way to both wake up you, and your skin. In the evening, the facial massage could help you to relax and release the day’s stress while you prepare to go to bed. Whether you do the facial massage in the morning and/or the evening, it is a moment of relaxation and enjoyment just for you.
If you are short on time during your morning or evening routine, you could still do a facial massage by combining it with your cleansing routine. Our silky smooth banana cleanser is the best product for a facial massage and cleansing routine.
If you have more time for a full facial massage routine, then we have many videos on our website to help you treat a particular area. You can also follow our weekly plan and then you don’t have to think about which massage to do. For our longer facial massages, we recommend our anti-aging booster serum which is packed with actively working ingredients and which helps to slide your hands over your skin during your massage routines.
After you have performed a facial massage, it is important to hydrate and protect your skin with either a daytime or a nighttime cream. We recommend applying our deeply hydrating daytime cream Light as Air or our SPF30 day cream after your morning massage. For your evening routine, we recommend using our Retinol cream, and if you are sensitive to retinol, our Night Repair cream.
Don’t forget to drink plenty of water to also hydrate your body and skin from the inside out.
