Dry Skin: Does your face want to ‘crack’ you up?


Dry Skin is the worst!

You drink 2 litres of water everyday and try to follow a healthy diet while limiting your caffeine (the bare necessity to get through the day). Yet when you wake up in the morning your skin feels dry and tight and if you look close enough… it’s making you look old.

We normally find this is the day we go and find ourselves a richer moisturiser – however for most of us this does not offer us the result we’re looking for. Long lasting HYDRATION is like trying to hold water in your hands – not very effective. Using products with humectants deliver long lasting hydration to comfort any tight skin. For the best results use with regular exfoliation.

Best friends forever…Daily Microfoliant and Skin Hydrating Masque.

Is STRESS making you look your AGE?



Besides feeling overwhelmed and tired when trying to cope with everyday stresses of work and family, your stress can definitely affect your skin negatively. Cortisol is a hormone secreted continuously when under stress and this particular hormone has a dramatic impact on your body and skin.  Triggering inflammation which besides causing unnecessary sensitivity and breakouts (those nasty lumps sitting on your jawline) but can also cause the breakdown of valuable collagen and elastin. These are proteins that provide the structure and elasticity of your skin – with accelerated breakdown of these vital tissues – all of us are becoming more lined and wrinkled long before we should be.
