Enhance your skincare routine for Autumn
When the temperature suddenly changes, bringing down the windy and cold weather, our skin becomes fragile.
Pollution and external aggravators penetrate it, causing inflammation, sensitivity, dryness and redness.
Autumn is the time to be extra gentle to your skin. So how can you do that?
Follow the following steps:
Stop scrubbing your face with harsh exfoliators
Even natural exfoliators like charcoal/sugar/salt etc., are too intense for our facial skin. They strip our natural oils and promote skin abrasions which age your skin and make it too dry and itchy. Moreover, if your skin is oily, it loses its balance and produces even more oil! Instead, use the gentlest exfoliator- Konjac Sponge.
Konjac Sponges are soft sponges made from the Konjac root (a starchy root vegetable). The sponge allows you to gently cleanse and exfoliate your face in one simple step, with just added water, giving your skin a smooth and glowing look.
Konjac Sponges are perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin. They remove makeup gently and effectively while still cleansing, toning and balancing your skin.
Stop using alcohol-based cleansers for makeup removal
Alcohol-based cleansers strip, dry, and age your face; instead, use Micellar Water! (Click here to read about the double cleansing method)
Micellar water is a gentle and effective multi-purpose product. It cleanses, tones and balances the skin and is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
It is made of micelles (tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules) suspended in soft water. When cleaning the face with Micellar Water, the micelles attract the dirt, oil, and impurities on your face and lift them from your skin's surface. Micellar Water is a soapless and alcohol-free product so that it won't sting or dry out your skin. Instead, it balances the skin, restores skin hydration and enhances the skin's natural barrier function.
Hydrate your skin, starting with your face
Your face is exposed to the elements year-round and is the first to show signs of stress and ageing. So if you feel your skin tightening or becoming itchy and sensitive in autumn, It's time to hydrate your skin.
How? With a Hyaluronic Acid Serum that suits your skin type.
Hyaluronic Acid is the most hydrating substance in the world! It's a molecule that naturally occurs in human tissues. It attracts water and keeps skin hydrated, plump, and youthful. Unfortunately, as we age, the amount of naturally made Hyaluronic Acid in our skin decreases, contributing to the loss of freshness, hydration, moisture and elasticity in the skin and the development of wrinkles. Applying a Hyaluronic Acid Serum to your skin as the first layer of your skincare routine promotes instant softening and restoring of the skins' elasticity and contributes to a significant anti-wrinkle effect.
We offer three types of Hyaluronic Acid Serums for you to choose from-
Hyaluronic Acid Serum Pure for regular skin
Hyaluronic Acid Serum Rose for red, hot and dry skin prone to acne, eczema or rosacea.
Hyaluronic Acid Serum Chamomile for sensitive and dry skin prone to dermatitis.
Lock in the hydration
After applying your choice of Hyaluronic Acid Serum, lock in the hydration with your choice of face oil or serum.
Face oils boost the skin's hydration and elasticity, reduce wrinkles, keep the skin toned, improve its overall appearance, and ensure a vital and radiant complexion.
We offer three traditional and scientifically proven oils to be highly beneficial for skin health. The oils promote cell regeneration, strengthen the skin barrier, protect the skin against external pathogens and the elements, promote collagen and elastin production, contribute to skin rejuvenation, and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and much more.
Use Cacay Oil as a morning & night oil. Cacay Oil is very balanced and suits every skin type. Cacay is a dry oil easily absorbed into the skin and is perfect for boosting its hydration and elasticity. In addition, it visibly smoothes out the skins' appearance, making it look younger and firmer.
If your skin is prone to acne, atopic dermatitis, rosacea and eczema, use Cacay oil in the morning and Black Seed Oil at night.
Black Seed Oil is a rejuvenating and replenishing oil known to diminish fine lines, fight acne, atopic dermatitis, rosacea and eczema, unclog pores, fade dark spots and soothe dry and sensitive skin. Black Seed Oil is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
For very dry/mature skin, use Baobab Oil.
Baobab Oil is a luxurious, nutrient-rich oil with many health benefits. It is a rich source of vitamins A and F, which are actively involved in rejuvenating and renewing cell membranes, and are extremely helpful in the natural process of skin rebuilding. In addition, it is high in Oleic Acid and has highly moisturising and emollient qualities, making it especially beneficial for dry and mature skin, but is excellent for all skin types.
Protect your lips!
Our lips don't produce sebum (the skin's natural protective oil). So when the weather becomes colder and windier, you'll feel the need to protect and hydrate your lips from the elements. Our 'Hemp & Tulsi Lip Balm For Weather Protection' takes care of dry and chapped lips, leaving them feeling smooth and nourished. It improves the skins' barrier function while creating a natural shield that protects your lips from the elements. In addition, Tulsi essential oil is rich in naturally occurring Eugenol and might prevent the formation of cold sores.
Our 'Hemp & Tulsi Lip Balm For Weather Protection' is suitable for all ages, including children.
Nourish and hydrate your whole body
Your body's skin might feel dry and tight during autumn. Give it love, nourishment and hydration with the 'Hemp & Soul Nourishing & Hydrating Body & Massage Oil'.
It is a wonderfully rich oil with an abundance of vitamins and minerals.
You can use it during a body massage or moisturise your skin, and it even replaces soap! Apply some oil onto a face towel and gently cleanse and exfoliate your skin in the shower; the water and oil will emulsify and deeply hydrate your skin. In addition, this oil will minimise stretch marks with regular use. The oil is unscented, making it suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin and is safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Have a wonderful Autumn!
