Our skin is the biggest organ of the body and is constantly being bombarded with stresses like invisible little ninjas trying to attack that vital protective barrier of the skin.
Hormonal, environmental and lifestyle stresses can play havoc on your skin from the inside and out. Having a good skincare routine is a great way to protect, repair, hydrate and nourish your skin.
Who would have thought it could be that simple. As therapists we are looking at lots of factors on the skin rather than a type such as lifestyle and the environment you are in. Taking into account not just the outside but the inside too.
We totally understand how confusing it must be with so many products bombarding your viewpoint when we are shopping. We often see people using products that are actually not doing much for the skin at all but hey that is OK that is where we are here to help you.
Some of the common things we see are our younger clients using anti-age products that are really too rich and heavy for the skin or products that are just too abrasive on the skin. More demanding skins not having enough active ingredients to target concerns. We love to cover our bodies with the latest fashion and shoes. Yet an area that is exposed to the elements like the face in particular sometimes is an area we are not sure about what to do or just forget about.
Skincare does not have to be complicated. Make it as simple or as elaborate as you want to make it and we can help guide you in the right direction. Here is a few questions:
I love simplicity so in this blog lets start talking about the first step and that is preparing your skin so we need to talk cleansing. Bye bye soap and water or cleansing wipes, here are some different options for you.

A natural fibre sponge with added ingredients for all skin types. These sponges once hydrated will gently cleanse the skin. They can be used with or without cleanser and a great alternative to wipes as they can contain alcohol that may dry the skin long term.

A good cleansing routine is a great start to prepare your skin for the next stage of your skincare routine, scrubs, masks and moisturisers which we will talk about at a later date.
