The Simple Face Lift

Workouts for your complexion as well as body

You know that exercise is brilliant for the body, but did you know it can really improve your skin too? It’s true! Exercise helps increase the heart rate and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin. So skin can look less sallow and more radiant as a result!
That’s why we’ve worked with Simple Fitness Expert, Anna Reich, to develop an innovative programme of exercises specifically designed to have a positive impact on your skin as well as your body - from ‘anti-ageing facial workouts’ to exercises which target each section of the body.
Simple skin benefits...
• Regular keep-fit sessions can help relieve fatigue and improve posture which can alleviate stress. When we feel less stressed it can show improvements in our skin too!
• Stretching exercises are great for de-stressing and encouraging better sleep. And the more sleep we get, the more time our body has to repair and regenerate, helping us look younger for longer and help reduce stress-induced wrinkles and dark circles.

    Kind to Skin Deep Cleansing Face Mask

    We're all about feel good skin, which is why we love our Simple Kind to Skin Deep Cleansing Face Mask! This skincare essential features ingredients like Pro-Vitamin B5, Natural Clay and Seaweed Extracts to gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin, drawing out deep down dirt to eliminate dead skin cells. At Simple we know how important it is to take a little 'me time', and using a face mask is a perfect way to unwind – just apply the mask to thoroughly cleansed skin (avoiding the eye area), leave for 3 minutes then rinse thoroughly with clean water.

    Why not use the Deep Cleansing Face Mask as part of a skincare pamper session? It is ideal to use once a week on dry skin, or twice a week on normal/oily skin. Start by using your favourite Simple cleanser, like our Kind to Skin Micellar Cleansing Water, then apply the face mask and relax. Once you've rinsed the mask off, don't forget to moisturise – we love to instantly quench our thirsty skin with the Water Boost Hydrating Gel Cream. Did you know that the stress of our daily lives can be a trigger for skin sensitivity? Taking some time out to be kind to your complexion is a great step towards happy, healthy-looking skin – beauty trends may come and go, but naturally gorgeous skin never goes out of style. Like all of our products, the Deep Cleansing Face Mask is perfect even for sensitive skin.
