There is an amazing grace about a face that glows with vibrant skin, radiating joy in every fine line, quiet wisdom that manifests with the privilege of age. Age-less in my books means clear luminous skin at any age - glowing with vitality and health. UV sun exposure over the years, melasma, hormonal pigmentation and loss of elasticity and tone are a natural part of skin ageing. Dry skin lacks emollients while dehydrated skin lacks water. Skin with dryness and dehydration needs nourishment and hydration. A plump, radiant complexion the natural way is possible with humectants, emollients and moisture building treats. Your skin tends to be Vata (air, cold dry) dominant so indulge in deeply moisturizing Purearth facials, oil massages, masque-ing and exfoliating rituals.
A step by step guide
Damp and tone skin with the Sambac Botanical Mist to tighten pores, promote cell regeneration, quench parched thirsty skin and restore pH balance. Sambac helps with Step 2 – the delivery of Qing oils and lipids to penetrate into skin.
Foaming surfactant cleansers can be drying! Oil cleansing helps dry flaky cells’ desquamation. Massage 2-3 pumps of our Qing Cleansing Oil generously all over face, lashes, lips, neck and chest, breathing in the soothing aroma and allow Qing to lift makeup, pollution particles and dirt. Gently wipe away with a warm wrung damp Kapas Exfoliating Muslin Face Cloth. Allow the steam to penetrate the pores while hemp, tamanu and other oils and herbs work hard to lift dirt and cleanse while replenishing intercellular skin lipids.
An important step is the ritual is Mitti Raw Honey Face Masque to refine, polish and purify skin without drying. Twice weekly, use a generous layer of Mitti, the raw honey is a humectant, while Ayurvedic herbs brighten and boost cellular turnover to clarify the complexion. Clays with an electrical charge hydrate and boost collagen production, firming, toning while fighting free radicals. Skin feels so baby soft, smooth and happy after a Mitti ritual.
Illumine Supercritical Face Oil is an award-winning nourishing treat for dry, mature skin. Take 8-10 drops and massage it on fully wet skin damped with Sambac. I have dry, mature skin and enjoy massaging with the Illumine and Kwansha for nearly an hour its soooo addictive . The wild seaberry, rosehip and amaranth oils in it feed and treat my skin. EFA’s, vitamins, superoxide dismutase (a powerful antioxidant), and polyphenols strengthen and plump skin. The curves of the Kwansha Facial Beauty Coin fit well into facial contours to tone, lift and firm, bringing suppleness with regular use.
Morning and night, I always finish with the Rose & Seabuck Replenishing Face Cream and the Camomila Eye Serum to seal in long lasting nourishment. For intense hydration and to lock in moisture. In the winters I love mixing 4-5 drops of the Illumine Supercritical Oil with the Rose & Seabuck Replenishing Face Cream and massage into my face, neck and chest generously at bedtime as an overnight deep repair treatment.
