Skin Fit in the New Year
As the New Year dawns, it is always a talking point to discuss all things detox, clean, and life enhancing. The possibilities are endless and you alone can decide as to what regime of self-care you wish to adopt. The chances are that if you are reading this blog, you already have committed to a clean, conscious lifestyle.

There is often more than meets the eye when it comes to our bodies, ‘detoxing’. A sense of regret and self-loathing if you have over indulged with food and drink that may simply be out of kilter with your normal diet. Please remember that most of us live quite strict, self-imposed schedules of self-improvement and discipline, so once in a while, feel free to let your Wilde side shine!
However, the cleaner you are, the more sensitive you become so if you do have a night out, you will really feel it the next day. We want to help you understand how our body works and ultimately how it manifests in a healthy skin that glows with vitality.
Put simply, the ‘metabolism’ of something is how fast our cells turn nutrients into energy, which then repairs cells. The faster and more efficiently this happens, the quicker you recover and restore.
Age and poor lifestyle are major contributors to a reduced metabolism, which creates a sluggish, stagnant system that becomes over-burdened. Our skin has a metabolism that can be specifically targeted, repairing damaged skin to produce collagen, which is our skins trampoline with elasticity and youthful robustness.
Getting skin fit is all about combining a healthy lifestyle, clean, energetic skincare and a good method of ‘training’ the skin, with simple massage techniques. Romilly Wilde always places its emphasis on the importance of highly active, energetic ingredients that trigger an energetic change in the skin, immediately repairing cells and increasing the skins metabolic turnover. Combined with stimulating facial massage techniques, this home treatment can effectively nourish, correct and contour your face, defining its beauty and re-set its ability to decongest, ridding of toxins that can create a puffy, dull complexion.

Besides boosting overall metabolism and toning muscles, exercising dilates skin pores while sweating helps remove trapped oil and dirt. There are also other ways to increase the sweat other than intensive exercise. Infrared saunas are a fantastic way to rid the body of toxins. Far infrared waves penetrate deep into our body for a deep heating action which allows for the body to activate the sweat glands. The sweat glands offer one of only a few mechanisms that the body has to eliminate toxins and since the skin is the largest organ in the human body it is a very good means for elimination.
When far infrared waves are applied to water molecules (comprising 70% of our body) these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and the eventual breakdown of the water molecules causes encapsulated gases and other toxic materials to be released.
TONING FACIAL MUSCLES
Getting your ‘Skin Fit’ is absolutely bonafide. Being ‘fit’ simply means that we are working to our optimum state of health and looking and feeling well, with plenty of vigour and energy. Your skin needs working out as well as your body, and similar to our digestive system, appreciates the opportunity to be challenged and conditioned. Dull skin, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, or uneven skin tone, suggest it may be time to send your skin to the gym!
- Active Face Boost Oil Using two pumps of our face oil, activate and stimulate your facial muscles using the Gua sha. A simple action proven in studies to increase microcirculation by 400%. This restores blood flow to the area boosting collagen and elastin, improves elasticity of the skin and manipulates areas of tension to stimulate and regenerate cells. It also reduces fine lines, pigmentation, sagging skin and uneven skin tone and promotes lymphatic drainage, which eliminates toxins and helps to reduce congestion and puffiness.
- The Press Hold The Beauty Restorer is naturally cool to touch. So simply press-hold the cold jade over tired eyes or an area to reduce inflammation, boost lymphatic drainage and shrink the appearance of pores. Using the stone in this way can also reduce under eye bags and alleviate stress related symptoms such as headaches and throbbing temples.
- Pressure Points To activate pressure points on the face. These acupressure points stimulate the meridian channels which link directly to the organs in our body. Activating these points directly supports our organs and internal health.
Gua sha is revered across Asia for its beauty benefits. What sets it apart as a beauty treatment is its unique ability to engage with the circulation under the skin to draw in nutrients. In addition to applying the Romilly Wilde Active Boost Face oil to the surface of your skin, you are also activating your own body to do the work from the inside. It’s easy, on-hand, inexpensive, combines with all existing beauty routines and is completely natural.
ANTI-OXIDANTS ARE YOUR ARMOUR
Another effective way to improve the health and fitness of your skin are fighting against damaging free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive atoms or groups of atoms that interact with your cells. The sun and pollution are the top two ways that free radicals get into our bodies. When they do so, free radicals react with DNA cells, which begin to function poorly and can die completely. This is in turn, affects cell function and speeds up the ageing process. This is where antioxidants come in and these are our defence system to fight against these free radicals and the damage they can cause.
The Romilly Wilde formulas are all anti-oxidant rich, with oils and plant essences that have an active source of natural protective protectors ideal for stress and urban environments.
