SPARKLE LIKE MARKLE! Wedding Skin Prep - The FinishingTouches

It’s never too early to begin prepping your complexion for your BIG DAY and that complete wedding day radiance you deserve!

Taking care of your skin in the lead up to your big day:

Establishing a regular skincare routine will help your skin find its natural balance, and skin loves consistency, so stick with your core set of products. Cleanse twice a day with the Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser to gently remove daily dirt and impurities. If you’re short of time with all the wedding prep, take it into your morning shower with you. The massaging action will stimulate blood flow in the skin, giving a natural glow to your complexion. hccThe Shea Butter naturally moisturises the skin, while the Orange Peel Oil naturally rejuvenates the skin. Don’t forget that skin regenerates itself every 28 days, so it won’t take long for you to notice an improvement in your skin’s tone and texture.

Just before your wedding focus on getting as much hydration into your skin as possible, which will have a naturally plumping effect on your complexion, as well as giving you the all-important glow. Be sure to try and drink the recommended 2 litres of water a day and for that additional hydration and comfort ; massage our Replenishing Facial Oil into your neck and face.

For a complexion boost, add a pump of Nourishing Rose Day Cream to the Facial Oil to refine your skin texture. If you do this before you apply your make up, being sure to massage gently on to your face, neck and décolletage, your skin will be a perfectly primed base for your foundation. The secret to long-wearing make-up is all in the prep, so be sure to cleanse and moisturise thoroughly.

Taking some you time and looking after your whole body:

Every bride’s dream is to have an all-over flawless complexion. Whether you prefer to bath or shower, Rose Whisper Hand & Body Wash & matching Hand & body Lotion safeguard your skin's natural moisture while cleansing and moisturising. Enriched with Damask Rose and Geranium essential oils & Organic Aloe Vera to naturally soothe and calm skin, this elegant, luxurious natural fragrance will last the duration of your big day.

Apply the hand & body wash to damp skin in the shower, with hands or a shower sponge. Lather well and breathe in the organic essential oil fragrance blend. Or for a softly foaming bath, pour a little into the bath directly under running water.

Gorgeous Rose Whisper natural hand and body lotion will complete the ritual: it’s super-hydrating and quickly absorbed and will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturised.

Finally, while you may feel tempted to stay up late finishing last-minute tasks, set yourself a bedtime curfew. Lack of sleep not only depletes your skin, it will make you feel sluggish and more likely to rely on sugary snacks and caffeine, all of which can contribute to dull skin and breakouts. Rest, relax and enjoy your big day.

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.
