Sensitive Skin Soothers

For those suffering from hay fever, warmer weather often signals months of sneezing, runny noses and streaming eyes. One of the most common allergies, hay fever is caused by an irritation to pollen, a yellow-coloured powder produced by trees, flowers, grasses, and weeds.

Any of these symptoms sound familiar? If so, our founder Georgie Cleeve is on hand to help! Read on for a few easy tricks to help soothe the pesky symptoms so many of us are suffering from.

Check the ingredients
When it comes to your skincare routine, try and look out for ingredients with anti-inflammatory qualities.

Butterbur
Derived from the root of the Butterbur shrub which grows in Europe, Asia and parts of North America. Butterbur is a known anti-histamine that has long been used to soothe irritated skin.

Find it in our Get Up & Glow serum and Renaissance Mask.

Rose Water
Our Eye Wonder serum has a soothing rose water base, and is jam-packed with nutrients and peptides to help hydrate and strengthen the delicate eye area. Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce redness of irritated skin. It also helps tighten capillaries and reduce red blotches.

Pure MSM
Sulphur is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the human body and is known both as the ‘beauty mineral’ and the ‘healing mineral’ for its ability to support collagen production, promote circulation and decrease inflammation. Although not widely known, sulphur preparations have been used since the time of Hippocrates - the father of modern medicine - to beautify the skin and treat a variety of skin conditions..

Treat your eyes
Sometimes just applying some light pressure to the eye area can really help reduce irritation.

We recommend our tailored Magic Eye Massage Routine to not only de-puff and refresh the eye area but also help to relieve itchy eyes. Using ring fingers and just one pump of Eye Wonder, follow the steps below:
1) Imagine you are typing quickly on a keyboard. Use this tapping movement around the eyes, temples and on the forehead for 10 seconds
2) Place your ring finger on the first pressure point
3) Move to arch of the eyebrow, apply pressure to the second point
4) From here move in between the eye brows to the 3rd point
5) With very light pressure, circle the eye area 3 times from inner to outer eyebrow, underneath the eye and up the bridge of the nose, with your fingers meeting again in between the eyebrows .
6) On the last circle, apply pressure at point 4, pushing upwards towards the ceiling.
7) For point 5, apply the pressure inwards, towards to nose.
8) Applying a little more pressure, lift and slide towards the temples, lifting the eyebrow, gently circle under the eyes three times.
9) On the last circle of the eye socket, stop at the outer corner of the eye and apply pressure to pressure point 7
10) Now, using your index and middle finger, use static circular movements to the temples three times
11) Swap back to your ring finger applying pressure point movements to point 8.

Skincare Tips for Spring

30 March 2017 16:48

Posted in: Seasonal Skincare, How To, Skin Health

Spring is officially here! As the weather changes, the flowers start to bloom and the days get longer, it’s time to give your skincare routine a much needed spring-clean. We’re outlining a few of our top tips to ensure your complexion is rejuvenated, glowing and ready to face the warmer seasons ahead.

1) Opt for lighter textures.
During the warmer months, our skin doesn’t require as intense moisture so it’s time to replace heavy balms with lighter, glow-boosting formulas. We recommend keeping things simple with light-weight products such as the Renaissance Cleansing Gel, Nutri-Active Day Cream and Get Up & Glow.

2) Supplements.
After a long, cold winter, our skin is often feeling dry, dull and flaky by the time the spring months roll around. If supplements are not currently part of your daily routine, we strongly recommend our Pure MSM Supplements to boost overall skin condition, increase healthy collagen production, help to detox the skin cells and maintain a youthful complexion. Take 1 - 2 supplements per day, before meals.

3) Exfoliation.
Slough off dull winter skin to reveal a glowing complexion by exfoliating once a week. Regular exfoliation helps to deeply cleanse and unblock pores and also allows your products to be absorbed more effectively. Our creamy Micro Exfoliating Balm cleanses, exfoliates and nourishes in one go whilst feeding the skin’s lipid barrier to leave skin soft, healthy and younger-looking.

4) Don’t forget about your décolletage!
As the weather heats up, we tend to start revealing a little more skin with summery tops and spring dresses. We recommend treating your décolletage as an extension of your face and applying each of your products all the way down to your chest. This will help to repair the signs of ageing and keep skin smooth, plumped and spring-ready.

5) Nourish from the inside.
Make the most of the delicious spring vegetables which contain high levels of antioxidants, vitamin K, iron, and phytonutrients which work to keep skin healthy from the inside. Look out for nutritious foods like asparagus, kale, artichokes, blueberries and avocados to keep skin happy.
