5 top tips for tip top skin this spring
The bodies largest organ is your skin, and like other organs, it bears the brunt of stress and external contaminants we expose it to every day. Winter, in particular, can be particularly tough on skin, drying it out to reveal dry flaky skin that you’re grateful you can hide under layers and layers of clothing.
Spring is the best time to rejuvenate and refresh winter-weary skin and bring back your glow. Here are our 5 fuss-free top tips to give you red-carpet-ready skin:
1. Make time for a good skin care routine
Looking after yourself from the inside out is important. It is never too late to devote time to take care of your skin. A healthy facial skin care routine utilizing natural sourced products can make the world of difference. We start our skin care range with our Purifying Gentle Cleanser which uses naturally plant derived cleansing agents which gently and thoroughly remove impurities without stripping the skin of moisture. You can be certain that the cleanser acts in the best interest of your skin as it is enriched with active botanicals, antioxidants and vitamin E combined to create a unique hydrating complex which nurtures the skin but removes the likes of makeup and daily wear leaving your skin moisturised.
3. Deep cleanse with Pumpkin Polish Peel
Even with good habits such as sleeping well, a healthy diet and rehydrating, extra help won’t hurt. A facial peel is a step to help rejuvenate your skin. A 10-minute peel with our 3 in 1 Pumpkin Enzyme Facial Polish is a great alternative to a salon treatment which you can do in the comfort of your home. Apply a generous amount onto your face for 10 minutes. You can remove the peel with warm water and pat dry. Blending together non-irritating pumpkin enzymes, gentle rice and cranberry exfoliators, willow bark, chamomile, rice, acerola and yoghurt berry extracts. This polish is a gentle scrub, peel and mask, all in one.
2. Rehydrate with Exotic8 Oil and Hydrating Toning Mist
Water is the gift of life and that’s true for your skin as well. After all your skin is a living breathing organ. Drinking adequate amounts of water helps to eliminate toxins from your body that negatively affect your skin. Another way to hydrate your skin is by combining our Exotic8 Oil with the Hydrating Toning Mist to create an extreme hydrating complex that your skin will love. The gentle tones from the mist and organic oils of our Exotic8 Oil blended create a hydrating mask for your skin. This is a great way to infuse hydrating and moisturizing components in your dry winter skin.
4. Detox with diet
Spring is the opportune time to get in an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables that provide your body with the ammunition to fight off toxins and other harmful substances as well as promoting the regeneration of healthy new skin cells.
5. Magic of massage
You’re well aware of the amazing effects of massage on the mind and body, but these same effects can be enjoyed by the skin too. Facial massage improves blood circulation and can help you de-stress.
