2 product, 2 minute home facial

Massage is just as beneficial for our face as our bodies, but the morning rush sometimes makes us forget this. Did you know that massage is just as important for our face as the products we use? I didn‘t but that’s what I’ve been learning this week at the Weleda Salon in Prague, Czech Republic -where I was lucky enough too experience a 90 minute skin retreat at the very talented hands of Weleda Beautician Míša. As we both know full well, no-one has 90 minutes to devote to their skin every morning. So we though we would show you how to do your facial – in  2 minute with 2 products – easy! “In our hectic time, we need to think about how much time we devote to ourselves. And to realize that how we feel inside unfolds on our skin.”  Míša Products we will be using: Don’t worry, there isn’t a a million products you need to be using! Just two. We’re keeping this simple to get you out the door asap. How …

The beauty of nature – with cosmetologist Maria Ester

Eco-Luxe DIY facial tips. Weleda cosmetologist Maria Ester’s skin glows with health. From my first glance at this beautiful lady I knew what she knows was talking about. Whatever her skin was having, mine wanted it too. Maria shared Weleda’s vision of beauty with me. Weleda strives to create a world where the health and beauty of human beings is continually growing – through nurture and nature. Beauty to Weleda isn’t about winding back the clock, it’s about supporting the body and the skin through our life stages. You won’t see a magic wand of a Photoshop brush in their brochures telling you about a miracle remedy – it’s science and the power of lead medicinal plants in their products that supports our skin as we pass through various stages of life – preserving and supporting. Not hiding or erasing. I’m thirty-six years of age. I’m not scared of aging. But that being said, I do want to help nature keep my skin as vital as possible, for as long as possible. Maria and her …
