Get Ready For Summer
Winter is over and summer is coming fast. Time to air those t-shirts and shorts. Time to tone up your skin before baring it for the world to see!
Keep your skin looking bright and fresh throughout the summer by following these simple steps from Jenny:
Before the soft kiss of sunshine, you need to get rid of dead cells, and dry and flaky skin.
For a homemade alternative, try using yoghurt
(a natural source of lactic acid), simply pop on your skin for 20 minutes and rinse.
Greet the sun with shining, moisturised skin.
Sukin have a clever scrub, using non-abrasive, micro particles of bamboo extract and ground walnut shells scrub away the dirt whilst aloe vera and chamomile soothe any redness. Rosehip, jojoba and sesame oils help moisturise your skin, you can find it here in our webshop.
Or use ingredients from your cupboards, try adding 2 tablespoons of natural yoghurt
to fine oatmeal
and add a spoon of honey
. Blend to a fine paste, apply and leave for 15 minutes, then rinse off. Voilá, scrubbed skin.
Keep the spots away with a daily cleansing regime.
A good toner can help refine pores, smooth skin and prepare skin for better absorption of a moisturiser.
For a natural equivalent, try soaking a flannel in hot water and apply to your face to soak away impurities for 5 minutes. Splash with freezing cold water afterwards to close your pores and tone your skin.
To maintain healthy skin, daily moisturiser is a must.
