As we peel off the layers of winter clothing, come spring we do the same with skin. We’ve curated a selection of our favourite natural beauty treatment products to rejuvenate and ‘brighten’ skin for the warmer months. Get ready — glow!
for SENSITIVE SKIN
If you are prone to sensitivities, avoid sand-like exfoliating textures. We suggest you stick to these gentle skin brightening formulas:
Skin & Tonic Gentle Scrub: We’re fans of this gently detoxifying scrub, made with oat, rosehip and French pink clay. It can be used both as a scrub and face mask to will leave your skin feeling smoother and softer.
Evolué Exfoliating Cleanser: This gently exfoliating cleanser is also great to use as a mask – just leave on for 20-30 minutes instead of washing off straight away. Wake up tired and dull-feeling skin and be left with a shine-free and more balanced complexion.
Pai Skincare Kukui and Jojoba Skin Brightening Exfoliator: Ideal for sensitive and problem skin, including skin prone to acne, redness and eczema. The jojoba beads provide a natural and super gentle buffing action, while the Hawaiian Kukui Oil – a unique blend of Omega 3 & 6 – nourishes the skin and protects its moisture barrier. Win-win.
for DRY SKIN
ELDE Enzyme Treatment: With both physical (cranberry seed powder) and chemical (fruit enzymes) exfoliating ingredients, you’ll get the best of both worlds with this treatment from Norwegian brand ELDE. Excellent at addressing damaged, hyper-pigmented, blemished, dry and dull skin, buff away dead skin cells and blocked pores to reveal healthy new skin.
Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask: This beautiful face mask deeply cleanses skin and helps improve its appearance by eliminating dull and blemished skin cells, absorbing dirt and toxins and exfoliating, thanks to pomegranate enzymes, pink French clay and white willow extract. Smells delicious too!
Dr Alkaitis Beautifying Mask: Dealing with dullness and dry skin? Time to turn to the power of flowers and mushrooms. When blended with water to a smooth paste, this nourishing natural face mask and anti-ageing treatment, enhances cell renewal and is anti-inflammatory.
for OILY SKIN
Nourish Enzymatic Exfoliating Face Cleanser: Ever the multi-tasker? Try this treatment, which is a cleanser, mask and facial, all-in-one. We like the mix of exfoliating pomegranate enzymes and nourishing kale extract, as it instantly rejuvenates skin and helps protect skin against environmental stress.
Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive: Formulated to reduce the appearance of dark spots and discolouration, we love this fruit-based peel rich in organic alpha hydroxy acids for getting a quick spa-grade chemical exfoliation from the comfort of your own bathroom. Great for those seeking to even out skin tone and texture.
ACURE Brightening Facial Scrub: Packing argan stem cell, chlorella growth factor, organic sea kelp and lemon peel, naturally cleanse away excess oil without taking your natural moisture with it. Added bonus: it’s vegan (and of course cruelty free)! It’s gentle enough to use on a more regular basis – we suggest 3 times per week for best results.
