    Skin Health

    Our skin is a remarkable organ. It covers us, protects us, regulates our temperature, and shows us the first signs of imbalance in our bodies. The health of our skin reflects the true health of our being

    Skin Health

    Without constant cleaning, moisturising and protection our skin becomes more susceptible to clogging and imperfections, is easily irritated and ages more noticeably

    As the old saying goes “prevention is better than cure” and the same is true with skincare. Laying the foundations of a high quality, consistent grooming routine now will go a long way to preserving a youthful appearance as the days roll by

    Natural

    Charles Darwin proposed that all life on earth evolved from “one primordial form” – that we share the information encoded within our genes with all other life forms, be it human, animal, plant or bacterial

    Natural

    This interrelatedness of earthly life has important implications when we try to understand the inner workings of our biology, and when we develop therapies to treat and improve our bodies

    Natural skin care remedies have been around since the 4th millennia, but much more recently technology and “green chemistry” has improved to the point where we can effectively harvest and harness the goodness of naturally derived ingredients

    Our bio-compatibility with the plant world allows us to draw on the regenerative and anti-ageing qualities of plant essences such as herbs, roots, flowers, water, oils and naturally occurring carrier agents to effectively improve our skin condition

    A few of nature’s top power ingredients

    Tasman Pepper Leaf – Native rainforest extract from the Tasmanian Pepper fruit, it helps inhibit the skin discomfort sensor and reduces inflammation. It helps reduce the appearance of skin redness and provides immediate relief of itching and irritation

    Violet Leaf Extract – Is used to treat skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, skin ruptures and similar skin ailments

Contains anti-inflammatory and healing properties to help facilitate the repair of skin damaged from acne, ageing or sun exposure

    Activated Charcoal – This deeply cleansing extract helps clean heal skin blemishes by drawing dirt, oil, bacteria and micro-particles to the surface to be washed away

    Avocado Oil – Is rich in many nutrients craved by the body, such as vitamin A and D, Lecithin and Potassium. A fantastic dry-skin moisturising oil that helps with skin conditions such as eczema, and assists in the treatment of climate-damaged, parched, undernourished or ageing skin

    Ritual

    Your face is your biggest asset. The moneymaker. The first touch point in every greeting, every meeting, every power play. And first impressions last. It’s also the window into the soul, and it doesn’t lie. It directly reflects the lifestyle you lead

    Ritual

    So it stands to reason that any investment, in time or money, into its health and up keep is well spent

    Committing to a simple daily skin care routine will fundamentally change the appearance and health of your skin now, and dramatically slow the inevitable signs of ageing

    1. CLEANSE
      Cleansing is the important first skin care step. A high-quality cleanser will gently clean the skin, remove any excess oil and dirt and in turn regulate the amount of oil your skin naturally producesThe end result should be skin that is clean and does not feel dry or tight
    2. EXFOLIATE
      Exfoliating is the unsung hero of the weekly routine. Our skin cells are in a continual state of rejuvenation, meaning we must rid ourselves of old skin build up and expose the younger, fresh skinExfoliation also specifically helps men in a huge way: It exposes the face’s hair follicles, allowing for a better shave and no ingrown hairs
    3. MOISTURISE
      A premium quality moisturiser should be the focal point of any skincare routineThe moisturiser is tasked with hydrating, protecting, energising, smoothing and correcting your skin. Without quality ingredients you’re limiting your chances of healthy and hydrated skin protected from environmental and lifestyle assaults which can trigger sensitivity, damage and premature ageing
    4. PROTECT
      The daily use of an SPF sunscreen is an important step towards healthy skin, and critical in the anti-ageing fightSPF sunscreens shield the suns damaging UV rays which leak through our depleted ozone layer. Those harmful rays destroy the elastic tissue and collagen in the skin, directly resulting in accelerated ageing changes to the skin
    5. NOURISH
      When we sleep our skin is working overtime to correct and repair itself. it’s critical we feed it what it needs to effectively nourish, rejuvenate and repair the skinAnti-ageing serums contain the most potent doses of ingredients packed with antioxidants because, versus creams, most of the fluid is eliminated and what you’re left with is a high concentration of active ingredients in very small molecules

    The skin absorbs these far more quickly and deeply which leads to a noticeably smoother, softer, and more vibrant complexion, and a reduction in wrinkles and lines
