Discover Our Ultimate Balancing Daily Skincare Routine
Skin + Mind in balance = beautiful skin
It’s no secret that when you’re feeling stressed, your complexion looks dull. You might get a break-out or your skin could even flare up with an inflammatory condition like eczema or psoriasis. On the other hand, we’ve all come back from a relaxing holiday or time away and been greeted with compliments about how our skin looks – calmer, clearer, more rejuvenated and radiant. We call this the skin-mind connection. Otherwise known as Psychodermatology – it’s a rapidly evolving discipline in psychosomatic medicine, that shows that our mind and skin are inextricably linked.
And while we can’t control what life throws at us, we can take the time to help strengthen our state of mind and wellbeing, and in turn, help positively impact our skin health.
Now, we’re not suggesting that a skincare routine is going to solve all the challenges life has in store for us, but we do like to think of our daily skincare routine as a soothing self-care ritual, as well as a time to treat our skin to the love and care it deserves.
From taking an extra little moment to breathe, slowly massage and really feel present in the moment, we can help tap into this skin-mind connection and soothe not only our skin’s stressors, but our overactive minds too…
Cleansing is not only one of the most important things we can do for our skin – but it doubles as a ritualistic practice, allowing us to symbolically wash away our worries and any stress that’s occurred throughout the day.
Melt away make-up and impurities with our Oil To Foam Cleanser. The soothing formula is packed with squalane, which mimics the skin’s natural oils, helping to nourish and rehydrate while it cleanses. Brightening niacinamide helps to boost radiance while rosehip oil enriches the skin with moisturising vitamins A and E.
Apply on dry skin before emulsifying with a little water and watch how the oil transforms into a soothing, silky milk. Breathe in the calming scent of Sandalwood and Jasmine to restore a sense of balance and ground the mind.
If you’re a fan of a facial massage, our Nourishing Cleansing Balm is perfect. It’s blended with all-natural butters and has a soft, luxurious texture that melts into the skin, allowing you to release tension in the muscles and really sculpt the skin. Blue Tansy works to repair tired and stressed cells while upcycled Raspberry Seed Oil helps to soften and hydrate the skin.
When you’re feeling deflated, letting go and shedding old stresses and worries is key. Which is exactly what our Resurfacing Exfoliator helps to do with your skin. It gets rid of dull, surface skin cells – allowing the brighter, healthier cells to shine through.
Enriched with Organic Frankincense Powder it gently buffs away dead skin cells while calming and clearing the mind. Fruit Enzymes promote cell renewal to help brighten the skin while a blend of Upcycled Blueberry and Raspberry Seeds further add to the exfoliation. The result? A radiant, glowing complexion that’s free from the baggage that was holding you back.
Healthy skin is hydrated skin. Which is why we developed our Hydration Boost Mist. Packed with intensely hydrating ingredients, it allows you to instantly spritz soothing moisture back into your skin – whether it’s a part of your skincare routine or throughout the day.
The soothing scent helps you to reset and re-charge, while Damask Rose Water helps repair and promotes cell renewal on-the-go. It’s also enriched with hero hydrator Hyaluronic Acid, which plumps the skin and dehydrated fine lines, plus a clever Amino Acid Blend that helps to repair and strengthen your skin throughout the day.
Continuing with hydration comes our brilliant Radiance Boost Serum – an indulgent, lightweight serum that it’s brimming with repairing and protecting ingredients for ultimate skin nourishment and luminosity.
Sweep the silky serum over the skin in upwards strokes, allowing clever Alpine Rose to help enhance the skin’s barrier and promote skin regeneration. Added Prebiotics work to further protect and support the skin’s defences while patented IBR-ChillTM helps to protect the skin from the effects of day-to- day stressors.
Facial oils are great not only for our skin’s health, but as an aid to really take the time to massage our skin and tap into that all important skin-mind connection. Take five-minutes within your routine to perform a spa-like skincare massage, sweeping your favourite facial oil into your skin – taking time to apply pressure where we hold tension (like the brow bones and jaw) and focussing on our neck, decolletage and heart space.
Choose between our three luxurious oils – whichever your skin needs most.
Our Pro Barrier Boost Face Oil is suitable for all skin types and champions ingredients like Bakuchoil, Centella Asiatica Oil and Blue Tansy to restore the skin barrier, minimise fine lines and wrinkles and boost skin glow.
Pro Glow Face Oil is all about radiance. It’s been formulated with drier skin types in mind, delivering intense hydration and brightening Vitamin C, while having a lightweight feel that leaves your complexion quenched and radiant.
Pro Calm Face Oil is ideal for those with oilier or combination skin. It works to rebalance the skin, thanks to a blend of Bakuchiol, Ylang Ylang and Apple Seed Oil. Not only that, but the calming Lavender extract helps to soothe both mind and skin.
No matter your skin type, locking in your skincare routine with a robust moisturiser is key. It allows all of your skincare actives underneath to really get to work, without escaping from the surface of the skin. It can also act as a signal to our brain that we’re finished, safe and ready to face the world.
If you’re after a lightweight everyday moisturiser then our Hydra Plump Gel Cream is brilliant. It works to balance your complexion and is infused with Plant Stem Cell Technology that protects the quality of the skin – mimicking a plant’s survival response to harsh conditions. Hyaluronic Acid works to hydrate, plump and firm leaving you with a more radiant complexion and tranquil mind.
For those wanting a richer finish, our Intensive Rich Cream is the one for you. Ideal for drier skin types or those with ageing skin, the nourishing formula allows your skin to feel supple, firm and full of life. Again, the Plant Stem Cell Technology works to enhance and protect the skin barrier while added Prebiotics further support the skin’s defences, visibly lifting the skin.
