Breaking bad habits - The Daily Essential Swap for Organic September

ORGANIC SEPTEMBER
It’s that time of year again!

So whether you are an Organic ‘nut’, only shop partly organic, or are only just converting to organic produce, we want to accompany you on your journey and help you make the switch from regular Highstreet skincare products to Organic and Ethical Produce and we can clearly recommend all of our products which:

  • Contain a minimum of 98% plant-based ingredients and a minimum of 10% of all ingredients, by weight, must come from organic farming.
  • Only use ingredients derived from renewable resources.
  • Never contain GMO, parabens, phenoxyethanol, nanoparticles, silicon, PEG, synthetic perfumes and dyes or animal derived ingredients.

Step 1: Save yourself precious time in the morning;

After a sprightly dog walk, I jump in the shower and cleanse my face and neck with a pump of Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. I use this in the shower to save time, but you of course can use quite simply with a hot cloth over the sink. This is incredibly good at getting rid of any overnight oil build up (even with my oily complexion!).

In the past I have always used foam cleansers, with the logic that it was the lather that would prevent breakouts and oiliness, but these products actually made my blemishes worse as they stripped my skin of its natural oils.

Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser even removes the most stubborn eye makeup! Something I have struggled with in the past, and the panda eyes look being an all too familiar one! I also suffer from sensitive skin so in the past if even a smidge of product has gone near my eyes then it has instantly reacted; all of Organic Surge’s skincare is suitable for the most sensitive skin.

Step 2: A moisturiser which does what it says

After a quick hot lemon drink for cleansing, I use Nourishing Rose Day Cream for my face and neck; it’s true that a little goes a long way! Not only does it smell incredible and has a lovely light feel but the Argan oil nourishes the skin so deeply, your skin feels truly soft. The damask rose oil also calms redness which I am often prone to. Finally,  Palmarosa and geranium oils infuse  the skin with vital moisture for a luminous, supple complexion.

After using an organic moisturiser with super concentrated natural ingredients and no chemical nasties, you’ll see what you have been missing out on.

Step 3: Not all Deodorants are the same

Why should we put up with products that could be harming our skin and even our health?

Deodorant is one of those daily essentials that we don’t even really think about, and it’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the same old products. I myself was guilty of that, until Organic Surge brought out their Super Fresh Deodorant.
deo

Specifically formulated with a unique complex of naturally derived ingredients to gently target odour creating bacteria and keep you feeling fresh throughout the day, it omits an ingredient so commonly found in the majority of Highstreet deodorants: ALUMINIUM.

Many people are not aware of the difference between an antiperspirant and a deodorant. An antiperspirant uses pore-clogging aluminium to block the skin and prevent sweating, a deodorant simply kills the bacteria that cause body odour whilst allowing the skin to breathe.

I have been absolutely amazed at the difference switching to an organic Deodorant has made. As a keen runner, I was pretty sceptical about its effectiveness, but there hasn’t been any odour whatsoever and not a sweat patch in sight! I haven’t really suffered from sensitive skin under my arm pits, but applying deodorant after shaving was always excruciating painful and I just learnt to live with the sting! But after using Super Fresh Deodorant the sting just doesn’t happen anymore. I couldn’t believe it!

Step 4: A handy companion

Previously, I’ve been guilty of choosing a hand wash based purely on packaging – something that will look great in my bathroom. It’s always been a bonus if it claims to be ‘moisturising’. Yet I've discovered that although many Highstreet brands use a small percentage of moisturising ingredients in their hand washes, they can leave hands dryer than ever, partly due to SLS, which gives the bubbles but is in fact a harsh chemical. SLS strips the natural oils from the skin leaving it dry, out of its natural balance and more susceptible to damage. This time of year is a particularly important time to make the switch to an organic hand and body wash, now that the colder weather is on the horizon. Switching to Organic Surge’s Hand & Body Wash range (available in three fabulous fragrances) which are specially formulated to cleanse even the most sensitive skin leaves me confident that my hands will win the fight against winter this.


You definitely don't need harsh chemicals to keep your skin in check. Let nature take care of it, switch to organic and you won’t look back!

 

Are you stuck in a bad skin care habit? Use Organic September as an excuse to switch things around with these Organic Surge essentials. 

 

Simply Pure Beauty

Victoria Jensen, founder of Simply Pure Beauty, Penryn, is a qualified beauty therapist, masseuse and reflexologist of 25 years. Her treatments relax and rejuvenate to enhance mind, body and soul, so naturally we wanted to get know Simply Pure Beauty a little better….
victoria

Simply Pure Beauty is a beautiful name for your salon, what does it represent?
I’ve been through a lot of changes in my life and I wanted the business to reflect where I am at this stage; able to celebrate balance and well – being. The salon is quite minimalist and it’s all white, which in part was actually inspired by Organic Surge’s products as I genuinely love everything about them.  I love the fact that they’re simple, organic, and adaptable to many routines.

What motivated you to embark on a career as a masseuse, reflexologist and beauty therapist?
I’m very passionate about mental health, and health in general and because I’ve been a beauty therapist for 25 years and worked in so many different places, I feel very strongly about working in a mindful and relaxed manner rather than trying to rush treatments.
Although I really enjoy doing a variety of beauty treatments − including things like waxing and tinting − I’m really passionate about giving someone a really good treatment, maintaining what you’ve been given naturally and looking after yourself in as holistic a way as possible.

For someone new to massage, what is the best way for them to begin?
It depends on the client, if someone was a bit embarrassed or shy then I would encourage them to go for something like a back massage to start with. I always explain what I’m going to do and how I’m going to do it so there’s no surprises. I use a warm bed, so that people can feel like they’re nurtured and the ‘towel technique’ so clients feel less exposed. I also give them the opportunity to ask me any questions, and they can ask me any questions throughout too.

How often would you advise people to have a massage or a facial?
I get asked this a lot; I always advise the client that it depends on their time and their budget. Most of my clients come once a month. I personally have a massage once I month.  I think if you leave it any longer than that then it’s like starting from scratch again, so maintenance is important.

How does massage therapy work and what happens to the muscles before and after?
In basic terms, when we use our bodies we get a build-up of toxins, especially if you do a lot of physical exercise, and eventually this causes the muscles to become quite tight, which is why you can ache in places such as the lumber spine.  When you massage the muscles, this increases the blood and lymph flow, which gets rid of the waste quicker, so not only are you increasing your blood flow and circulation, but you’re then going to be increasing your lymphatic system. I always advise that you drink lots of water because it will help to flush out the toxins, even if you’re having something like a facial or reflexology, it’s important to drink lots of water afterwards.

Finally a HUGE THANK YOU for offering an Organic Surge facial as part of the Facebook Competition:
“That’s my pleasure - I love my facials, they’re such a lovely treatment so I’m delighted to offer this as a prize. The lucky winner will start all snuggled up in a lovely warm bed, in a white duvet, with lots of white towels. Then I use mittens which are warmed up begin with the Organic Surge Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser Enriched with Natural Shea Butter which I remove with the hot mitts, and then sometimes I use an essential oil, depending on their skin type. Then I use the Organic Surge Perfecting Face Polish, which I later remove with the warm mitts, then I will do another cleanse, then we go into the massage. I normally decant a small amount of almond oil which I’ll warm up in my hands and apply to the Décolletage, and around the trapezius. I use the Organic Surge Replenishing Facial Oil Enriched with Argan Oil and warm it in my hands so that they can get that beautiful smell, and then put that over their skin, and then I will massage around their Décolletage, followed by a massage of the whole area. When that’s done I apply the Organic Surge Deep Cleansing Face Mask, and they then get some cotton discs and have a warm compress over their eyes. I then do a head massage, or sometimes a hand massage if they prefer. Once that’s done I cleanse off with a warm mitt, then I will apply the Organic Surge Hydrating Eye Cream Enriched with Jojoba Oil, and then Nourishing Rose Day Cream Enriched with Damask Rose Oil. Luckily the Organic Surge range suits everyone’s skin type.  Then I will put a warm towel around their necks for a nice finishing touch, and then either they won’t want to get up, or they may even be snoring!”

Refresh Your Skin Care Routine for Autumn

October is here and that means that nights are drawing in and the mornings are toe-stubbingly dark.

Flip flops are begrudgingly put away in the cupboard as the winter boots are unearthed, so it’s time for a skin care swap too. The treasured summer staples that have been keeping your skin balanced and glowing throughout the summer season now need to be updated with products which are more tailored to the fresher, chillier weather.

Here are five products to add to your routine, ready for autumn.

  1. Moisturise Moisturise Moisturise!

Organic Surge Super-Intensive Daily Moisturiser

The drier air we experience throughout October-February means that skin can quickly become dry so it is vital to switch to a more nourishing (not necessarily thicker) moisturiser. Most complexions will love the ultimate boost that our Super-Intensive Daily Moisturiser gives. Organic rose geranium essential oil is key to restoring skin balance and reviving a dull complexion. With the additional benefits of Aloe Vera to repair, sooth and moisturise, skin will feel and look super soft.

  1. Try a new product

Organic Surge Deep Cleansing Face Mask

There is little harm in experimenting once in a while with new products, and you can’t go far wrong with natural and organic products, so why not try a Facial Mask? Facial masks treat your particular skin type or condition, and if you’re prone to dry skin as the temperature drops, then a facial mask should easily hydrate your skin. If your skin is red or inflamed, then the mask should calm and soothe. If your skin is oily, the facial mask can help draw out impurities from the skin. Our Deep Cleansing Face Mask is made from Purifying essential oils, blended with soothing chamomile and ginkgo biloba to brighten and rebalance, leaving skin clean, clear and revitalised.

 

  1. Don’t Forget These Key Areas

Organic Surge Lavender Meadow Hand and Body Lotion
It’s easy to focus solely on the health of your face during the colder months, but there are other areas that require your attention in the colder climate, mainly your hands, which will be exposed to the elements just as much as your face. Lavender Meadow Hand and Body Lotion has an intensive moisturising action and is quickly-absorbed to provide comfort and hydration. Enriched with organic lavender and geranium essential oils, and moisturising vitamin E, shea butter and cocoa butter, this dreamy lotion works to prevent moisture loss leaving skin comforted and softened.

 

  1. Get your glow back!

Organic Surge Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser Enriched with Natural Shea Butter

 

Why should your skin only get a summer glow? Get your glow back and reveal smoother, brighter skin with our multi-award winning Natural Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser, with a new and improved formula making it suitable for vegans. This Hot Cloth Cleanser will gently remove dirt and impurities, harnessing the highest quality essential oils and moisturisers to care and clean to fully rejuvenate skin. The massaging action will stimulate blood flow in the skin, giving a natural glow to the complexion, enhanced by the gentle exfoliation from use of a cloth in the cleansing regime.

 

  1. Finally, Call in the big guns!

Organic Surge Replenishing Facial Oil Enriched with Argan Oil

If you feel that your moisturiser just doesn’t cut the mustard when it comes to all-winter-protection, then give it a helping hand with a facial oil. Perfect on its own, or dilute it down by mixing it in with your every day moisturiser, this luxurious yet lightweight oil instantly hydrates parched skin, without leaving a heavy pellicule. Using an uplifting blend of essential oils including soothing argan oil and yarrow oil, it will leave your skin looking and feeling comfortable, soft and fresh.

 

 

For the love of Roses



Guest blogger Stephanie from Expert Home Tips is here to tell us about her love-affair with roses.

rose

There’s just something about the rose. Elegant, feminine and with a whole list of benefits for mind, body and soul, this really is nature at its best!

All roses have properties that benefit the body, but there’s none quite as special as the Damask Rose. It’s the oldest species of rose known to date, with its use dating as far back as Grecian and Roman times, when it was used to perfume baths.

It’s the Damask Rose that can be found in the Organic Surge Radiance Recovery Night Cream. Its addition, in the form of essential oils, has many beneficial properties for skin that make this a stand-out product.

Besides smelling great, here’s what the addition of Damask Rose Oil can do for your beauty regime:

  1.  Helps acne-prone skin

 When pores become blocked with excess sebum, bacteria builds up, and this combination causes acne. For people that suffer from spots regularly, keeping bacteria at bay is essential.

The damask rose has antibacterial properties that make it an ideal treatment for acne-prone skin. It’s capable of completely destroying Propionibacterium acnes - the bacteria that leads to acne.

Organic Surge Radiance Recovery Night Cream could just be what your troublesome skin’s been in need of.

  1. Promotes younger-looking skin

There’s no need to invest in Botox if you choose a skin product containing Damask Rose. High in antioxidants, rose protects skin from sun damage that causes ageing, including wrinkles and sagging.

Additionally, antioxidants work to soothe and calm stressed skin, helping it to regain that youthful firmness we all chase after.

  1. Calms redness & soothes sensitive skin

For those with sensitive skin, redness can be a real problem. Many people presume oil would aggravate such skin - Rose oil, however, does the opposite. As it’s 100% natural and has anti-inflammatory properties, it actually works to soothe and calm skin.

This reduces redness and signs of irritation to leave the skin looking and feeling balanced.

  1. Intensely moisturises dry skin

Choosing a product that is moisturising enough for dry and damaged skin, but light enough to prevent breakouts can be difficult. This is where the Damask rose in the Organic Surge Radiance Recovery Night Cream comes in.

Rose oil makes skin more permeable, meaning the product is really able to sink deep into the skin and work its magic. As it’s also 100% natural and extremely light, it won’t clog the pores – Rose is an extremely versatile ingredient suitable for most skin types.

  1. Tones and tightens skin

One of the reason rose water features so much is toner, is due to its astringent qualities. It has a tightening effect on capillaries, which helps to reduce the appearance of pores as well as brightening the complexion.

The addition of Damask rose to a night cream is extremely clever, as it will lead to a supple and taught complexion in the morning. What better way to start the day!

If you love the scent of Rose as much as I do, (a lot and a lot) there’s another flower I’d also recommend exploring - the Rose Geranium.

Despite its name, the Rose Geranium isn’t actually a rose at all, however you’d be forgiven for thinking it was. One sniff is enough to fool you – it has the same, feminine floral scent, with some citrus added in for good measure.

If you fancy seeing just what this wonderful flower can do, you can try it in the Organic Surge Daily Care Refreshing Face Wash.

 

Incorporate Rose Geranium into your beauty regime today to benefit from:

  1. Mood-boosting effects

The Organic Surge Daily Care Refreshing Face Was has a truly stunning scent. In fact, the aroma of Rose Geranium alone can produce a mood-boosting effect, reducing feelings of stress and anxiety.

These are the kind of feelings you want products to promote during your beauty regime. Whether you have two minute or two hours, take a few minutes to be at one with yourself and feel utter relaxation with Rose Geranium.

  1. Stabilises both oily & dry skin types

The reason we experience dry or oily skin is due to and imbalance in the secretion of sebum – the oil that lubricates the skin’s surface.

One of Rose Geraniums most valued properties is perhaps its power to rebalance this mechanism when the skin is struggling to do so itself. Balanced sebum secretion means clear pores, and clear skin as a result.

  1. Clears and soothes acne-prone skin

Similarly to the Damask Rose, Rose Geranium also has anti-bacterial properties. This makes it an ideal ingredient in a face wash, ensuring skin is completely cleansed, and all traces of bad bacteria removed.

Washing the skin with a product like Organic Surge Daily Care Refreshing Face Wash gives acne-prone skin the best chance possible to keep pores, and skin, clear.

Spring is in the Air

By Organic Surge

Spring seems to have arrived – and we’ve been sharing things we notice. Leaves coming into bud, birds gathering twigs for nests, the feel of the sun on our faces, the colour of the sky… We find that just being aware of everyday pleasures really enhances our quality of life. You could say it’s a form of mindfulness – a centuries-old meditation technique that focuses the mind in the present to help relieve stress and anxiety. You can begin small by simply becoming more aware of the world around you and of your own thoughts and feelings. Birds, bees, blossom, bulbs – welcome the joys of spring!


Spring Cleaning

We’ve all heard of spring cleaning, but it’s not just your home that can benefit. Winter can leave your skin looking tired and dull, but our top-quality, natural cleanser – the Organic Surge Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser – will make you feel radiant and renewed. This must-have product is enriched with shea butter to moisturise as well as damask rose and orange peel oils to calm, hydrate and rejuvenate. And it’s organically certified as using 99% natural ingredients. ‘I am soooo pleased with my skin's new bright skintone, smooth appearance and firmness, giving me (I am told) a noticeably younger look!’ says customer Cath H. Just massage the cleanser into your face and neck then wipe away with a facecloth rinsed in hand-hot water. You really will notice that spring is all around you. Find out more about our Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser here

Lighten up

Spring is a time for wearing lighter clothes and eating lighter food. Suddenly here at Organic Surge we’re all sharing recipes for salads and looking out for British asparagus and berries. So why not lighten up your beauty routine too by switching to a facial oil? Organic Surge Replenishing Facial Oil Enriched With Argan Oil instantly hydrates your skin yet leaves no heavy traces. It’s an ingenious blend of three oils: argan, safflower and yarrow. Safflower oil comes from a thistle-like plant with a history that stretches back to the Egyptians. Yarrow – which you often see in butterfly gardens – is a traditional medicine known for its astringent effects. Our Replenishing Facial Oil is 100% natural, with over half its ingredients from organic farming. What better way to celebrate the spring? Find out more about our Replenishing Facial Oil Enriched with Argan Oil here.

International Mother Earth Day

April 22 is the day designated by the UN for thinking about safeguarding the planet for future generations and living in harmony with nature. At Organic Surge we always do our best: we use organically certified natural ingredients not only to be kinder to our skin and bodies but to save the environment from pollution by unnecessary chemicals. ‘So thrilled to throw away all my chemical-filled facial products,’ says new customer Samantha S. We also donate funds to charity projects including the Kenyan Children’s Home in Nairobi and Mercy Ships, a floating hospital that brings healthcare to some of the world's poorest people. Living organically can help us all to live life better.

And it needn’t cost the earth.

Spring Clean Your Skin Routine

Turn that frown upside because it looks like, finally, the SUN IS SHINING! With today (10th April) forecast to be the hottest day of the year so far, it’s time to switch the central heating dial down, don your bathers, and, while you’re at it, adjust your skincare routine.


Seasonality is a key aspect to your beauty regime, as it needs to respond to the effects of specific weather conditions.


Alongside seasonal colour collections, we should be increasingly aware of how changes in the environment are affecting the conditions of our skin. Just as the winter months are the time to target extreme dryness, the warmer months are the time to nourish skin with protection against sun damage or humidity.


Did you know...?
67% of beauty lovers change their skincare routine each season 
 

So with this in mind, we’ve selected the best of the Organic Surge bunch for the tops picks for Spring.

Spring time means that it’s time that we should dare to bare our perfectly polished pins, and in order to achieve this look in super-quick time try our . With its deliciously uplifting fragrance, our new and improved body scrub contains, natural pumice, combined with sunflower seed oil, to gently exfoliate your skin to help reveal your natural beauty.

Did you know...?
18% are more likely to exfoliate during the summer compared to 20% of winter buffers


Serums come in to their own at this time of year. Not only can they help to boost collagen and elastin production and restore firmness to the skin, they accelerate cellular renewal which can brighten the skin and make it appear more luminous and smooth.


Our intensive smoothing serum should be applied twice daily and is the first product that should be applied to the skin after cleansing and toning. Your sunscreen should be applied over the serum in the morning and then your moisturiser should follow.


Did you know...?
6% of serum users use more facial serum during warmer months


So hop to it, banish those winter blues and shake up your beauty regime for scrumptious spring time skin. Right. I’m off to buy an ice cream....

Egg-stra Care This Easter


The four day weekend is so close that you can practically taste the chocolate, and everyone at Organic Surge Towers would like to wish you all a very happy Easter! 
Yet Easter isn’t just about celebrating the end of Lent and seeing how many cream eggs you can fit in your mouth in one go, it’s about celebrating new beginnings and so why not make the most of the super long four-day weekend and revise your Organic Surge skincare routine.
It's easy to rush through a morning routine, or skip a nighttime step in order to get to bed that 5 minutes faster. But each step is important. For example, cleansing is vital to keep skin healthy, revitalised and protected from external and internal factors that can lead to signs of ageing. Your skin will reap rewards if you cleanse effectively, and with the right cleanser too, no matter what your age or skin type is. You see, one step cannot really work effectively without the others - it's as simple as that. Unless you properly clean your face before applying your Extra Care serum, oil and moisturiser, the natural and organic goodness within these products cannot be absorbed properly into the skin as they are blocked by make up and the remains of daily dirt and grime. If you remember the important yet simple (and pleasurable) step of the Extra Care skincare step, you will find that beyond Easter you’ll be showing off your refreshed, radiant complexion, albeit with a slighter larger waistline! 
Our natural brightening hot cloth cleanser gently removes dirt and impurities, harnessing the highest quality essential oils and moisturisers to care and clean to fully rejuvenate skin. Massaged over dry skin, it will loosen and dissolve everyday grime, which is then wiped away with a cloth and hot water. The massaging action will stimulate blood flow in the skin, giving a natural glow to the complexion, enhanced by the gentle exfoliation from use of a cloth in the cleansing regime. Personally I can't live without my Hot Cloth Cleanser. I use it in the shower to save time in the morning, and it makes my skin feel soft almost instantly. I adore the rose scent too, it's just heavenly! Plus it helps me to wake up in the morning too! Here's what Fiona, one of our loyal customers, has to say about it. 


I've been using this for just over a month now, after using the market leading rival product for years. Comparing the two, I find I need to use less product with this one, you can massage it in for longer before it 'dries' on the skin, so you get a longer clean. It leaves skin feeling really soft and smells gorgeous. It's brilliant ... and a little less expensive too.

If you prefer a wash-off face cleanser and wish to smooth and improve the appearance of dull, sluggish complexions, try our Daily Care Face Wash. It rinses away daily dirt and impurities, removes make-up on the face and around the eyes (not an easy task for me!) The 100% natural lather and essential oils help to restore your skin’s natural balance, and the hygienic pump means that there's finger double dipping! Our customers love it too, thank you Jenny M!:

I LOVE this product! It has a lovely aroma, it washes my face gently but
also removes all traces of make-up. The best bit is it lasts for ages and is sold at a good price! I'm always trying to convert friends and family. Also it's made in Scotland so is supporting our local economy and its organic so gentle on my skin :-) 

 


So enjoy your lovely long Easter break, and the copious amount of chocolate, but also remember to make the time to cleanse properly and you will soon reap the rewards.

Here are a few of our favourites:

Calming Lavender Meadow Hand wash

I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t LOVE this hand wash. Not only is it super soft and gentle (even for a chronic eczema sufferer like me) it smells of ACTUAL lavender, not that horrible artificial scent that you often get with synthetic lavender products. It is so gentle on your skin, but a highly effective hand wash, all without stripping your skin of its natural protective moisture.

 

Daily Care Refreshing Face Wash

This chic little bottle, whether it’s in the standard size or super cute mini version, is a beauty essential.

It  rinses away daily dirt and impurities, and remove make-up like a dream. The 100% natural lather and essential oils help to restore skin’s natural balance, and the smell is just heavenly.

We know that you have been a patient bunch whilst we do the grand reveal, and we cannot thank you enough for staying with us through the transition period. We think you will agree that it is worth the wait and it wont be long until you see all of our lovely new labels.

We hope you love the new products just as much as the Organic Surge team do, we’d love to hear your thoughts on our Facebook and Twitter pages!
