Lumity was founded by Dr Sara Palmer Hussey who has a specialist interest in ageing and really believed the condition of our skin showcases what’s in our body. It’s her belief that there’s only one skin type but lots of different imbalances.
Sara did a lot of experimenting on herself to begin with; she is essentially her target audience. So she picked the things she wanted and needed in terms of ease and results, which is how the Lumity supplements came about. The oils then followed as well to offer support from the outside as well as the inside. Sara believes our beauty routines are too complicated and that we just need to give skin the right nutrients. It’s all about simplifying routine.
Yes, of course. Diet, and the effects on the circadian rhythms and hormones; so the supplements are designed to support those and to give body what it needs to repair itself. For us it all stems from science and is rooted in the nine steps of ageing. Sara looked at all those theories in relation to the circadian rhythm, but it’s not just about the appearance of ageing; it’s about the whole lifestyle – if you feel great on the inside it will show on your skin.
Do diet is important, but nothing different from what you would expect. It’s about finding a balance and the supplements are there to support that. Stress comes into it as well and the facial oil can help with that as it contains 32 botanical ingredients including essential oils which help to relieve stress.
Of course the results are different for everyone, but in addition to the skin benefits we get a lot of people saying that they feel as though they sleep better and they therefore have more energy, so they’re more inclined to exercise, and then it becomes a very positive cycle.
Helena Christensen has been very supportive and we have a number of make-up artists and facialists who use our products. Nicola Joss for example recently used our oils in a facial for Meghan Markle before her wedding.
