Factors such as:
Worst of all, these external factors can damage the ability of our skin to produce natural antioxidant vitamins.
Antioxidant vitamins play an important role in our skin health.
They help to:
Common signs of premature aging skin include:
But do you know that topical antioxidant vitamin such as vitamin A, Bs, C, or E can prevent and even reverse signs of premature skin aging?
Topical vitamin A helps to reduce signs of blemishes.
Topical vitamin A is also known as ‘The Normaliser’ because it helps to:
It is of these properties that topical vitamin A is a must have skincare item for mature skin.
There are various forms of topical vitamin B including B3, B5, B6, B9 or B12. All of them are beneficial for mature dry skin.
The main benefits of topical vitamin Bs including the ability to:
Just like plants need plenty of water and nutrients to produce healthy crops, mature skin needs plenty of hydration and healthy skin cells as the foundation to restore and maintain skin health.
Topical vitamin Bs are the building blocks of healthy and strong skin.
Especially for mature skin.
We all enjoy the feeling of beautiful sun shining on skin.
But too much sun exposure can be dangerous to our skin health.
Ultraviolet light can destroy the antioxidant vitamins that are naturally produced in our skin and give rise to reactive oxygen species (ROS).
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) is a type of unstable molecules that contain oxygen. A build-up of ROS can destroy skin cell network and cause cell death.
Applying antioxidant vitamin C during the day can help boost the level of antioxidant in our skin, protect our skin from oxidative stress and reduce the chance of ROS development.
Antioxidant vitamin C can be even more effective when it’s used in conjunction with a moisturiser containing SPF.
Applying a moisturiser containing SPF can increase the efficacy of antioxidant vitamin C against the effect of oxidative stress.
Unblemished skin doesn’t exist on mature skin naturally.
For most of us, signs of blemishes become obvious once we reached 40.
We need a daily skincare routine with appropriate skin care products tailored for our own skin type.
A skincare routine doesn’t need to be complicated and time consuming either.
A simple 3-step skincare routine that takes up less than 5 minutes is all we need to restore healthy and strong skin.

Passion for Skincare
En Face is a skin care company inspired by the French philosophy that healthy skin is the foundation for lifelong beauty and a reflection of overall health.
Kim Baxter is the passionate owner behind the En Face Skincare brand. From as early as 18 years of age Kim became very interested in skincare. As a professional ballet dancer, she was used to wearing lots of heavy make-up for long periods of time.
The heavy foundation she applied under stage makeup often left her skin feeling dry and unhealthy. During the off-season, she would leave her skin completely clear of any makeup and so, she quickly learned the value of healthy skin.
Price Tag Means Nothing
Many women, and men, spend a lot of money on expensive skincare brands thinking they must be effective products if they cost a lot of money.
When Kim was in her mid-40 she started to notice that her skin was constantly dry, no matter how many layers of expensive cream she applied.
She soon discovered that there were many women in her age bracket who shared the same complaint about how inactive and inefficient their skincare products were, despite having spent a lot of money on them.
The Steps to Launch En Face
En Face is a French term which means “facing forward”. Kim adopted the name for the brand because it reminds her of her ballet background. In classical ballet the term “en face” means to face the front before or after movements.
At En Face we believe that it is what is in the jar that is important, not the beautiful packaging that you pay a fortune for! Kim began to research about the positive effects of cosmeceutical products their active ingredients, for example, vitamins, amino acids, peptides, and various antioxidant extracts.
Kim has completed a Diploma of Personal Care Formulation and a Diploma of Personal Care Development at the Institute of Personal Care Science in Queensland. Her mission this time was to learn all the facts that one needs to know to create a skincare brand, about cosmetic regulation, sourcing raw materials, types of packaging, and product safety testing.
After finishing her diploma Kim started to design and formulate her ideal range of products. Her mission was to create a brand that would help improve mature skin health and alleviate common skin complaints such as dry flaky skin, premature wrinkles as a result of sun damage, uneven skin tone, skin dullness, skin congestion, sensitive skin, and most importantly, I wanted my products to be formulated and delivered safely. Thus, the En Face Skincare range was born.
The En Face range of cosmeceutical skin care products have been especially formulated to meet the needs of maturing skin. Our creams and serums are made by hand with only the highest quality of ingredients. Our formulas contain the right active ingredients in the precise percentage required to restore natural skin health.
Our unique formulas are non-irritating and naturally hydrating, meeting the complex needs of aging skin.
We believe in healthier skin and natural beauty at every age.
