Exfoliation & Dry Skin
When those of us with dry skin take a look at those itchy, peeling flakes, one thought surely crosses the mind: “How do I get rid of this?” But while cleansing is of course vitally important, dry skin in particular needs an extra top-up, to remove those dead cells. Not only can a high quality product remove build up, it can soften skin that has become tough and hard. In both cases, it can prime skin for better absorption of moisturiser. However, chemical or powerfully alcoholic formulas might remove dead cells, but they can dry skin out further in the long run. A naturally based approach, maximising gentleness while avoiding a lack of potency, would surely be welcomed by many.
The Power of the Sea
We’ve all looked at the waves crashing onto the beach, and marvelled at their strength! An essential component of the sea is the salt found within its waters, the purest quality of which has long been at a premium as a food savouring. But for almost as long, it’s been used to address skin needs! Comparable to regular salt, that from the sea is incredibly mineral rich, including magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium. Noted to reinvigorate by stimulating circulation, it has a rich, varied texture, allowing it to address every layer of dry skin. What’s more, in its pure state, it needs no refinement or additional chemicals to maximise its remarkable traits.

We might think of this bee-produced substance as belonging primarily on toast or in hot beverages, but it would be a mistake to underestimate its remarkable abilities. To give an idea of how it combines so much of nature’s power, the essence of about two million flowers is found in half a kilo of honey. It used for it’s incredibly protective traits, as well purifying of all manner if impurities.
According to legend, the tea plant, of which Green Tea is just one extract, was initially cultivated in China almost five thousand years ago. Rather than being a hot beverage, it was first used as a health-boosting herb! In addition to being a noted astringent, we know now that it contains polyphenols, which have protective and calming effects on our entire bodies.
Dry skin is often the most delicate and sensitive, prone to reacting to external influences which can exacerbate its condition. It is therefore very important to protect skin against such effects. Vitamin E is clearly, definitively acknowledged as contributing to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
