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 …

Our skin needs food too

What we put on our skin should be good enough to eat. With our skin being the largest organ of our bodies and since it absorbs whatever you put on it – why should it be any different? A recent study shows that over 90% of people find it just as important to know what you put on your skin as what you eat. This is great news that we are thinking this way. Why? Because… A study for the American Journal of Public Health looked at the skin’s absorption rate of chemicals found in drinking water. They showed that it absorbed 64% of contaminants. Other research projects found the face to be several times more absorbent than larger, boarder body areas and that the underarms and genitalia were the most absorbent of all – taking in 100% of chemicals. Scary stuff. Skin Food Facials with my Global Garden sister, Phoebe. My Global Garden sister, Phoebe and I were lucky enough to be treated to a Skin Food Facial and hand massage by the team …

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 …
