Caring for skin during the Winter

As temperatures drop so do the moisture levels in your skin. The winter weather conditions can take a toll on your face and body therefore, it’s important to show your skin some TLC to keep it protected all season. Cold temperatures and harsh winds can cause skin to dry out and lose its natural, healthy-looking glow. In addition to the winter weather, central heating can cause the air to dry out, which as a result, can cause your skin to dehydrate. Less sunlight during the darker winter months can also strip your skin of nutrients, which can cause skin to look dull and uneven.

What about natural treatment for rosacea?

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels on the face. It can also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps. These may flare up for weeks to months and then go away for a while. Natural treatments using essential oils offer a great way to keep rosacea under control.  For rosacea we recommend using Sustain (oil cleansing protection) which contains argan oil to assist with inflammation and oxidative damage. It can reduce the appearance of rosacea symptoms, as well as calm the skin and reduce redness. Omega fatty acids comprise the majority of argan oil. It is rich in omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, possessing very strong anti-inflammatory and moisturising qualities – both of which are critical for managing rosacea....

Coping with dark circles under eyes or age spots

Dark circles under the eye are extremely common in men and women. Usually accompanied by bags, dark circles can make you appear older than you are and also difficult to get rid of. Though they can affect anyone, dark circles are most common in people who are elderly or those with a genetic predisposition to periorbital hyperpigmentation. It also affects people from non-white ethnic groups (Black and Asian) as people with darker skin tones are more likely to be impacted by hyperpigmentation around the eye area.  The best ingredients for coping with dark circles under the eyes or age spots includes aloe vera gel to soothe skin and naturally reduce dark circles and glycerin to plump the skin around the eye area, regenerate fresh...

How to treat uneven skin tone?

For uneven skin texture and skin tone or hyperpigmentation, we recommend using turmeric as it has strong anti-inflammatory properties, which are essential for evening out skin texture, skin tone and skin complexion. It also works wonders for preventing acne and blemishes on the skin. Turmeric oil can moderate any excess melanin production in the skin in order to ease hyper-pigmentation. You can find turmeric in Stroke (double cleansing protection) and Polish (turmeric body scrub).  Stroke (double cleansing protection) also contains citric acid, which is great for brightening the skin. It works by gently exfoliating skin and removing any dead skin cells. Citric acid helps correct uneven skin tones, dark patches, scars, as well as age spots and dark circles under the eyes. The skin under the eyes is sensitive and therefore calls for gentle...
