Recently someone told me that cleansing properly was the basis of all proper skin care. If the skin is cleaned properly and not weighed down too much at night with heavy creams it has a chance to breathe and function properly as it should. By slightly changing my routine I have found this to be so true. Being a whole food skin care range we have the opportunity to use a range of ingredients that are traditionally are used for internal nutrition and apply them topically for proper skin nutrition and cleaning. I have put together a short list below, you might be surprised at what is used and why!

Best used when the skin is disrupted and needs healing, or for swimmers after getting out of a chlorine pool to restore a happy balance on the skins surface. Found in Lime Cleansing masque, pop it on when you get in the shower and leave it on, rinse off just before getting out of shower.
