No matter what your concern is, having a good skincare routine will always help us achieve the best results.
Whether we're trying to fight off the signs of ageing, prevent dry and flakey skin or help treat acne, using the right products can make a world of a difference.
You may be wondering what types of products should I be using?
It's easy to get lost when looking at the products on the shelves. Do I want something that's brightening, softening, repairing? The list goes on!
But have you ever thought about the ingredients in these products when you choose your skincare? There are things we certainly want to avoid like parabens, petrochemicals and phthalates which have a range of health concerns associated with them and they can be found in many skincare products on the shelves.
That's exactly why we choose to use natural skincare products.
Our body absorbs what we put on our skin and if you wouldn’t choose to eat food treated with these chemicals, why would you put them on your skin?
Chemically based skincare products can also have a negative impact on our environment. When these products are being manufactured some of the chemicals will end up in the air and water during production and there's also the impact of what we wash down the drain at home. These harmful ingredients wind up in the soil and waterways.
So when choosing our skincare products we look for ingredients like jojoba oil which is moisturising, rosehip oil which has anti-aging properties and coconut oil which has antimicrobial benefits.
This is exactly why we have loved using the Sal Remedia Organic Face and Eye cream found in our sold our Spring Box.
The cream is packed with coconut oil, rosehip oil, jojoba oil and mixed in with lavender and rose pure essential oils for the uplift that our skin wants!
This cream gives a rich, nourishing feel to the skin without the waxy feel. And you can use it as a day or night cream because it hydrates, helps to battle fine lines and wrinkles, smooths skin and reduces imperfections like puffiness and red skin.
So next time you go to upgrade your skincare, be sure to read the ingredients so you can avoid any hidden nasties!

Overnight oats are one of our go to recipes for breakfast!

If you're anything like us, then it was love at first sight the moment you unboxed the beautiful floral bottle by Wild Fox Apothecary in your Spring Box!
The Floral Oil is a beautiful blend of organic camellia, jojoba and pure coconut oils infused with delicate rose and jasmine flowers and lightly scented with an aromatically fresh, floral blend of pure essential oils.
