Morning

We like to keep things simple!

Step 1

Our Morning Routine is designed for simplicity and functionality. It is best to keep as much of the natural oils on our face, so we recommend just giving your face a splash of water all over in the morning and patting down with a clean and dry towel to dry or just let it dry naturally if you prefer.

Step 2

Followed up with our Toner to provide some extra hydration and give you a nice glow and added benefits of our skin healing ingredients.

Step 3

Then add your Day Cream OR Oil Serum/Hydration Serum combo to provide some nourishment under that makeup and help as a primer or base for your makeup so your foundation will go on smoothly.

Some really important tips to remember

Be patient with yourself and kind...don't forget kind

How does the saying go?....it won't happen overnight, but it will happen.  The reason for this in skincare is that the renewal of our skin cells takes 28 days.  Therefore, it is imperative when trying any skincare routine that you are patient with it.

Be consistent

Another very important key to successful care for your skin is to be consistent.  The more consistent you are with your routine, the better the results.  For those of you who have trouble sticking to a routine, try to stick to your routine at least every other day.  But, like other friends, you will probably look forward to the scents of our products and the feeling of your skin after you have completed your routine, giving you that extra special experience to look forward to every day!

Be considered

There are many variables to be considered to figure out what is not working for you when it comes to skincare.  There may not be a problem with your products.  Here are some factors to consider:

- irregular sleep

- digestive problems

- poor diet (too high in fat, too high in processed foods, too high in dairy

- stress

- allergies

- poor blood circulation

- hormonal imbalances

- water intake too low

- bacteria buildup either from unclean mobile phone, pillowcase or makeup brushes or constantly touching your face and picking at it.

 

All of these factors can affect your skin, so it's important if you want your skin looking it's best that you also consider these 

 

Be careful when exfoliating

It is very helpful in order to support and maintain a healthy glow that you exfoliate at once per week.  Gentle exfoliation is recommended. Simply use a gentle brush (such as a very soft bristled baby's brush).  Using circular motions in each area of your face (no more than 6 circular motions in each spot to avoid over exfoliating).  Exfoliation will also help to remove buildup from clogged pores.

For more information on each of products and the benefits they provide, please go to our Product Range.

Evening

Our Evening Routine uses a two step cleansing process to provide nourishment and benefits even while you're removing the daily grime.

Step 1

We recommend cleansing your face in the shower.  Pump a couple of pumps into the palm of your hand, rub your palms together and massage into your skin.  Using a fresh face washer that has been dampened with water, gently remove the oil from your face.  If you wear a heavy eye makeup, you can repeat around the eye area, however be certain to close your eyes while you gently massage the oils into the eye area.  Remove the Cleansing Oil as soon as possible to reduce the risk of entering into your eyes.

Cleansing with oil you say!  Oil cleansing is fabulous because the daily grime on your face sticks to the oil as you wipe over your face to remove makeup and any building from the environment that has accumulated on your skin over the course of the day.  Oil cleansing is also beneficial because you don't remove the skin's natural oils when you cleanse with oil cleanser like you do when you remove grime and makeup with soap or other astringent face products.

Step 2

Use our Cleansing Lotion as a second step to your routine.  This helps to remove the dust, pollen, air pollution and bacteria that has been accumulating during the course of the day.  We recommend a double cleanse, but of course if you prefer a simple routine, you can use one or the other.

Step 3

Our Night Cream is used to provide moisturisation and hydration if you prefer a traditional cream.  We love the scents of our products, they are very therapeutic for your Self-Care Bed Time Routine  Also, ask us about adding Hyaluronic Acid for extra hydration!

OR

 

For added hydration you could use our Hydrating Serum that includes Hyaluronic Acid and for any special treatment your skin needs, you could use our Oil Serum.
