We are here to reveal skin regimes, not only limited to the face, to help you combat uneven skin tone and achieve that fresh, out-of-the-shower/bath skin which we would all like to live with through each day.
A good skin regimen does not require fancy and expensive products, all it needs is consistency. Worrying and stressing about how your skin looks also contributes to whether you will have blackheads or acne accumulation. This is because our bodies release various hormones for the way we are feeling and the way for them to react is to make an appearance on our skin. The face is usually the most susceptible to internal criticism and stress. Although some signs can appear elsewhere like the neck, bac and shoulders; hair is also an indicator of good wellbeing or a lack thereof.
It is no secret that the colder temperatures take a toll on our hair and skin and a well-informed individual knows that treatments change and are different for the winter and for the summer. With this said, we hope you have been taking care of your skin with this winter. Summer is upon us and our routines need to change to accommodate the incoming climate.

The face is usually the focal point, but we are here to offer you tips on how to take care of your entire body from ingredients that you can find in your home grocery cupboard. A pretty face is well complemented by a smooth all over and radiant skin that shows that it is taken care of. For an extra feminine touch, sensuality is key, but guys you are also more than welcome and encouraged to try our methods too. Thank us once you have gotten the thrill f the experience.
Home care tips for face, body and feet:
Scrub/Mask, Cleanse, Moisturise
A scrub or facial mask helps to remove dead skin cells and open clogged pores.
Cleansing ensures that all the debris from the first step is removed and makes you skin clearer and easy to breathe.
Moisturising your skin, dependant on the time of washing (day/night) ensures that your skin gets the needed nutrients to keep hydrated. Hydration is important in a good skin routine. Do not forget to drink plenty of water. Remember that you need to choose a moisturiser dependent on your skin condition to achieve the best results.
As you do with your face, also apply to your body. The skin on our faces might be delicate, but at the end of a long day, our bodies need the same treatment. More so because they are covered underneath many layers of clothing. Nothing is more sensual than the touch of delicate, soft skin or to touch such human luxury; velvet and suede in live form.
Your body needs a good scrub too. You can invest in a home-made body scrub which is composed of brown/white sugar, olive oil and a tablespoon of your everyday body bath/shower wash. Use before you get into the bath/ shower by applying everywhere on body (avoid sensitive areas) and massaging thoroughly for 10-15 minutes; rinse off and moisturise body with everyday use moisturiser.
For additional suppleness to the skin, you can add coconut oil/ olive oil to your moisturiser for added moisture.
*Olive Oil helps to restore natural skin oil balance.
Coconut Oil is added moisture and helps to seal in hydration by preventing the skin pores from opening too wide after scrub. (Ideal for sun exposure use too, in conjunction with a relevant SPF sunscreen).
Our feet walk lengths in our lifetime, given the saying “Walk a mile in my shoes”, therefore they too need special attention because they basically carry us throughout all that happens in or days-walking, driving, gym, sitting- meanwhile they are stuck between shoes.
To understand feet, one needs to understand reflexology, which is the mind-map of our feet and evidence that our feet are bodies on their own with a functional heart, lungs, kidneys and other survivalist ‘body ‘parts. A simple pedicure can do a lot, not only for your feet, but your entire body because we are an interconnection of cells and neurons and sensations.
Whatever your method may be for foot care; Chinese, holistic, homeopathic, bottom line is your feet need as much attention as your face and rest of your body. Here is a simple Do-It-Yourself method to take care of your carriers.
