1. What does it mean that Novage+ is bioactivating skincare?
Novage+ is a bioactivating skincare line that utilises hero technologies sourced from natural origins. These technologies are designed to reactivate the skin's own biological functions, helping it repair, reset, and strengthen itself. This unique approach delivers exceptional clinically proven results quickly, while being gentle on the skin. Bioactivating skincare offers the same performance as active ingredients like Retinol, Niacinamide, Vitamin C, and Kojic Acid, but with a milder impact on the skin.
2. From what age can I use Novage+? What should I use if I only have first signs of ageing?
Novage+ is suitable for all ages, as it addresses various skin concerns rather than focusing solely on age. Regardless of your age, you can choose the Novage+ routine that best caters to your needs. If you're experiencing initial signs of ageing, such as fine lines or loss of firmness, Novage+ Wrinkle Smooth routine is a great starting point. This will not only reduce wrinkles but also help prevent their appearance.
3. How do I know which Novage+ products are the best fit for my skin?
Novage+ skincare is tailored to specific skin concerns rather than age. Here's a breakdown to help you choose the appropriate routine based on your specific skincare needs:
• Novage+ Wrinkle Smooth routine: Targets wrinkles and deep lines.
• Novage+ Lift + Firm routine: Addresses loss of elasticity and firmness.
• Novage+ Bright Intense routine: Focuses on hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and uneven skin tone.
• Novage+ Blemish & Age Defy routine: Designed for blemish-prone skin with ageing concerns.
• NovAge Skin Relief: Specifically formulated for sensitive-prone skin.
• NovAge Time Restore: Ideal for mature or post-menopausal skin.
• NovAge Men: Engineered for the unique needs of male skin.
4. When can I expect results after starting my Novage+ routine?
Novage+ delivers first clinically proven results in just 2 weeks, with long-term benefits visible within 6 to 8 weeks of consistent morning and evening use. To maintain these results, we recommend continuing with the Novage+ routine.
5. What does the “plus” signify in Novage+?
The "plus" in Novage+ represents the additional benefits it offers. This range incorporates 11 bioactivating technologies that work together to deliver exceptional clinically proven results in just 2 weeks. Novage+ combines the performance of active ingredients like Retinol, Niacinamide, Vitamin C, and Kojic Acid, with formulations suitable for all skin types. What’s more, Novage+ provides customised options, allowing you to find the ideal routine for your skin through our Digital Skin Diagnosis tool.
6. Can I combine ProCeuticals with my Novage+ routine?
Absolutely! ProCeuticals are advanced targeted solutions that seamlessly integrate into Novage+ to take your routine from good to great. However, it's important to note that ProCeuticals are designed for temporary use until specific skin concerns improve, while the Novage+ range is recommended for daily skincare.
7. Why does Novage+ have the same day and night cream across its different ranges?
Novage+ day and night creams are multi-active and multi-benefit formulations designed to address various skin concerns. By using the same creams across different ranges, Novage+ simplifies your skincare routine without compromising effectiveness. Here's what each cream focuses on:
• Novage + Multi-Active Anti-Ageing Day Cream: Protects and strengthens the skin during the day thanks to Bio Re:Barrier technology, Advanced Pollution System, and antioxidants.
• Novage+ Multi-Active Anti-Ageing Night Cream: Helps your skin to recover and repair while you sleep. It contains Advanced NightSync, an anti-aging technology that activates the skin's own repairing functions. It also features Bio CeramidesPro technology to repair, renew, and protect the skin barrier.
8. Should I switch between eye creams and serums for better results?
For optimal results, we recommend using a specific serum and eye cream combination within a Novage+ routine for at least 8 weeks before considering a switch. However, the beauty of customisation is that you can target different skin concerns in your eye and facial areas. Once you notice significant improvements in one particular skin concern, you can explore another Novage+ routine to address other issues.
9. What’s the difference between the light and rich cream? Which one should I choose?
The main difference between the light and rich creams lies in the type and quantity of emollients, which are skin-loving lipids present in the formulations. Here's a guide to help you choose:
• Dry skin: Rich textures are ideal, especially in cold and dry weather conditions.
• Normal or oily skin: Light textures effectively hydrate the skin, even in hot or dry environments.
• Combination skin: We recommend starting with light textures to avoid excessive shine. If you need extra moisture, combine the light day cream with a rich night cream.
10. What are the 4 steps of the Novage+ routine?
The Novage+ routine consists of 4 essential steps for achieving healthy and radiant skin: There are four steps to each Novage+ routine:
Step 1: Cleanser – Start by thoroughly cleansing your skin to remove impurities and ensure better absorption of subsequent Novage+ products. Remember to rinse off the cleanser before proceeding to the next steps.
Step 2: Eye cream – Gently apply the eye cream around your eye area using your ring finger.
Step 3: Serum – Take a drop of serum and apply it all over your face and neck, using upward movements.
