(In response to a client inquiry – posted on company blog)
Generally, we don’t recommend any specific kind of skincare product. We sell many different lines and stand by their quality, but that’s where our endorsements stop. Please remember, that what may work for one person, may not work for another. We do suggest that you talk to a doctor or dermatologist and use all products with care. With that said, there are some common practices that everyone can follow to support having the best skin possible. Here are our top three:
1) Stay hydrated. This is an old school piece of advice, but one that works. Our skin is actually the largest organ of the body. Now, don’t over-due the water intake. There have also been studies that suggest you can actually drink too much water. But a good rule of thumb is to drink enough water to not be thirsty. Sounds logical, but because there are so many different studies suggesting how much you can drink that contradict each other, it’s best to gage your water intake by what the Mayo clinic suggests – drink enough to not be thirsty and if your urine is pale yellow or colorless, you’re probably drinking perfectly enough to help with that beautiful skin.
2) Hold off on so much “exfoliating”. It’s a great buzz word and there are benefits to doing so, but there is such a thing as exfoliate your skin – especially on your face – way too much. The more you exfoliate, the dryer your skin gets, the more aggravated it gets. This can lead to just as many skin issues, as stated in this great piece in Allure. So, only exfoliate when you absolutely need too.
3) Understand your skin, for real! Realize that the more you understand your skin and how it feels in different circumstances, the better you’ll get at knowing what it needs. Different times of the year, require different products and different types of nurturing. The weather, stress, food, alcohol — all of these things contribute to the look and feel of your skin — so when you understand your skin fully, you can provide for its needs appropriately.
Lastly, although we’re happy to have you purchase our products and do stand by what we use to continue helping your skin stay vibrant and beautiful, please understand that taking care of your skin doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Like most of our products that are environmentally safe, organic and free from additives and cruelty-free, a lot of what you can do to help keep your skin feeling beautiful can be done with simple household products you may already have in your kitchen cabinets. If you’d like more information, please email us directly or speak to us the next time you visit. We’re always happy to help.
Till we meet again.
