Happy New Year….wishing you a splendid 2017 ahead. It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog but life happens and you gotta learn to roll with it. A lot has happened over the course of 2 years I’ve been absent on this blog but so far, it’s been a great learning curve. Back to 2017, I have been pursuing a clean, healthy lifestyle encompassing hair and skin. This journey has given birth to a new chapter of self awareness and a skincare line, specifically natural soaps.
Weekends are my special time of blocking out the world and catching up on a good book and some soul lifting music. By the way, has anyone listened to Michael Buble’s new album (Nobody But You Deluxe version)? It’s completely off the chart. My favorite tracks are ‘Nobody But Me, Someday (feat. Meghan Trainor), On an Evening in Roma’. On an Evening in Roma makes me feel like I’m on a 50’s MGM movie set. Anyway, an after effect of bingeing on books and music all through the weekend involves sleeplessness which can wreak havoc on the skin if care is not taken.
These are the top 3 bars I recommend from our stash of artisan soaps which you can get here.
1. Detox Creamie Bar: crafted from natural oils, bentonite clay and activated charcoal. Bentonite clay is very effective and beneficial for your skin no matter your age. What’s special about bentonite clay is that it draws out toxins from the skin, shrinks your pores noticeably after a few uses, prevents breakouts and leaves your skin soft and smooth. I recommend this for ladies with terrible acne issues, psoriasis and eczema.
How to apply? Simply work up a lather and apply on your face before bathing. Rinse off with water and voila, you’re on the way to even toned skin.
2. Organic Activated Charcoal Bar: activated charcoal acts like a magnet to attract and absorb dirt and oil. When dirt and oil in your pores come in contact with the carbon, they stick to it and then get washed away when you rinse. Organic activated charcoal is also a natural source of glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, that penetrates the skin and encourages cell turnover rate for fresher skin. This is my go to facial bar since I ditched commercial facial cleanser. I have seen remarkable results since I commenced usage. Highly recommended. Everyone remarks on my clearer face. There are days I do without foundation as there’s nothing to cover up.
3. Summer Rose Garden: crafted from natural oils and French Rose Clay, this bar is perfect for ladies with sensitive skin as it has a gentle cleansing action that isn’t too harsh. Used regularly, this clay bar will draw impurities and oils to the surface to be washed away, which will help reduce the appearance of oily skin and clogged pores. As your skin gets used to the regular application, you will see a more lifted, firm appearance. The consistent exfoliation helps to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you’re ready to try these artisanal bars for yourself, order our Flawless Skin Collection . When you see how well it works, you’ll not only enjoy the toned, refreshed feeling on your face and skin, you’ll also wonder why you ever submitted your poor skin to acids and commercial cleansers.
