What does well-functioning, healthy skin need? With ever-changing trends, it can be easy to lose sight of the elemental needs of our own individual skin biome. We believe to honour our bodies and ourselves is the best way to achieve healthy glowing skin. Read on for a brief routine that, alongside good wholesome food and water, will bring out its natural, healthy glow.
Cleanse Daily cleansing removes the surface layer of makeup, sweat and dirt from your skin, along with pollutants from the air that can negatively impact skin’s health. When skin is clean it can absorb the quality products you have invested in, helping products to work more effectively. Whether you choose a light foaming cleanser or a more nourishing cleansing balm, being pH balanced is a must for both. It is generally best to avoid anything that is too aggressive because it strips your skin and then it will over activate the oil glands leaving a catch 22 situation.
Hydrate After cleansing, the very next step is to ensure your skin is properly hydrated. How important is hydration to the skin? Think about how important water is to nearly every body function. From digestion to muscle function to cognitive health, it is vital. And skin is no different. Hydrating the skin increases its water content. This is one of the basic building blocks of healthy skin cells, allowing for proper dermal function. Besides dry, flaky skin, another tell-tale sign of dehydrated skin are breakouts, which can seem counterintuitive, but when skin is parched it compensates by producing excess oil, bringing with it clogged pores. We formulated 3 Hydra Mists to deliver hero hydrators namely Niacinamide, Panthenol and aloe, all natural humectants that increase water content in the skin cells.
Moisturize Moisture is an independent but identically important to healthy skin. The difference? Hydration is about water, moisture is about oil. Think of moisture (oil) as the seal that gently locks water in the skin, to prevent surface evaporation while nourishing and supporting the natural barrier. As it benefits skin as a gorgeous sealant, moisturizing can also visibly lessen the appearance of fine lines, smoothing and softening as per our Awaken Collection and addressing various concerns such as dark spots, uneven skin tone and dullness re Waymaker Collection Serums. We have a moisturizer effectively designed to target blemishes, acne and bacterial concerns affectionately called the Silver Lining. The oil-based formulations of our Awaken, Waymaker & Silver Lining Serums, are the ultimate moisturisers with restorative, nourishing botanical oils, powerful phytonutrients, adaptogens and fatty acids to support and restore all skin back to healthy skin.
Exfoliate Each cell in our body has a life cycle even our braincells. When it comes to skin, the cycle is around 28 days and as more and more skin cells reach the end of their little lifespan, the complexion can appear dull or dry and is in need of a little help to glow again. Enter exfoliation. By removing the top layer of dead skin cells, any clogged pores, dry skin and dirt are all polished away, unearthing fresher, more supple skin. Regular exfoliation has also been shown to support the skin’s natural cell turnover which aids in collagen production. When it comes to exfoliation, go easy though. Over scrubbing can damage the skin’s protective layer, causing new skin to tear and lead to redness. This is especially true for sensitive-skin types. Much like cleansing, exfoliation also preps the skin to better receive products that follow. The Aromatic Nami Cacao Mask is our go to. Its not only a highly effective biological peel that combines the antioxidant properties of super foods and vitamins C with skin brightening, exfoliating properties. This powder to mousse foams into a phyto nutrient powerhouse when activated with water, revealing glowing skin and finer lines.

Protect Free radicals are particles that are known to damage healthy cells in our body, including our skin cells. Free radicals can be produced in the body naturally, but they’re also introduced from outside sources (i.e. pollution, sun damage). Its been researched that 90% of aging comes from ozone pollution. Natural antioxidants and omega fatty acids help to defend against the oxidative damage caused by free radicals. The biggest benefit is the part they play in maintaining the surface layers of the skin. Maintaining a healthy, strong barrier is crucial to balanced, radiant skin. All our day Serums contain powerful ozone protectors and free-radical fighting agents that help shield the skin from environmental stressors throughout the day. Then upon nightfall, our Night Serums do their bit of damage control and repair. Last but not least is a good quality SPF and sun hat. These are absolute essentials for supporting skin health.
