A good beauty routine does not have to cost the earth, not financially nor ethically! Organic plant ingredients effectively nourish the skin much better than their chemical counterparts, keeping you and the world around you, Beautiful!
Who said beauty is only skin deep? Stay beautiful to your core…
1 HYDRATE FROM THE INSIDE
Drinking plenty of water is not only necessary for health but compulsory for healthy skin. How much is enough? I believe this differs from person to person depending lifestyle, diet and environment. Begin with 5 glasses, and listen to your body, it will let you know when it needs more.
If like me, you find water boring, get creative and spice it up with some herbs, fruits and vegetables. A few of my favorites are: lemon, mint & basil, lime & thyme, orange and rosemary, apple and cinnamon, lavender and berries or a dash of rosewater. And don’t forget to invest in a good filter and eliminate plastic from your life.
2 CLEANSE, TONE AND TREAT
The best gift you can give to your skin is a “double cleanse” every evening. Choose a gentle cleanser like our Olive and Castor Bean Cleansing Milk followed by a toner to remove any remaining impurities. Take 2 minutes to massage a good serum like our signature Rosehip Oil into the skin, preferably lying down with your eyes closed – come on it takes less than 5 minutes total!
3 EAT A RAINBOW
The essential nutrients found in colorful food feed into your skin and I believe these are best eaten whole and raw – sorry to all the juicers out there. I love my juices too, but whole foods are whole foods.
4 LAUGH AND SMILE
Laughter is the best medicine you can give to yourself and to those around you and it costs nothing! A smile can light up a room and instantly transform your own beauty, and in turn the karma behind a smile shows on your skin and soul. Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder!
Time is the most precious gift you can give yourself. Make some guilt-free time for you to re-connect – no excuse! Treat yourself to a massage, a nice facial, a Moroccan bath, a yoga session, or my favorite of all… some meditation, a candle lit bath followed by a nice body oil, an afternoon nap, or just a sunshine stroll, but not a phone in sight.
