Chemical and cruelty-free all natural skin care can be so hard to find. I was so excited to discover the Embalm Skincare range. I was even more excited to know that it not only is Embalm Australian, but all the products are made and produced here too.
We all lead busy lives and when we’re time poor it’s easy to neglect either self care or skin care or both. But you need to know, our skin is a reflection of what is happening in our mind, body and spirit. So, what you see on the outside is what’s happening inside, and the other way around.
The Importance of Skin Care
Your skin is your body’s first line of defence against the environment. Healthy skin provides a barrier that prevents bacteria and pathogens from entering your body where they could potentially cause infection, disease and discomfort.
Healthy skin promotes overall health and has the potential to boost your confidence.
Like any other part of your body, what you feed and how you treat your skin will determine how healthy your skin is. Proper skincare ensures that your skin has the nutrition it needs to repair itself, maintain optimal function and retain a youthful and radiant complexion.
The Importance of Self Care
Selfcare is neither self-indulgent nor selfish.
And nurturing ourselves is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. In fact, one of the best things we can do for our minds and bodies is to take a break.
Self care is not about being perfect or trying to become a better person or someone who “has it all together”.
It is about cultivating a kinder, gentler relationship with yourself and asking for the nurturing and nourishment you truly need.
Selfcare is about making small and purposeful efforts to ‘refill your cup’.
Did you know, you can incorporate selfcare into your regular skincare routine?
When we apply all natural skin care products, we often just lather on the soap or slap on the moisturiser without really allowing us to focus on what we’re doing.
But when we slow down, it allows us to move through this activity with greater attention and intention to become fully present in the moment.
So instead of rushing through the process, slow down and allow your skincare routine to become an act of self-care you look forward to, rather than just ticking another task off your to-do list.
Take time to massage the products properly into your skin, this will also help to maximise the effectiveness of each product.
Deeply inhale and appreciate the different fragrances of your skincare products.
Connecting with the five senses and incorporating scents to your skincare regime can transform it into a beautiful, energising ritual.
Be mindful and focus on what you’re doing when you put on your moisturiser, body lotion, body wash or body scrub or whatever it is you’re using.
Close your eyes for a few seconds and breathe in deeply the scents of the product.
At the beginning and end of each day, it’s a way to relax and unwind, let the stress go and live in the moment.
With the right skincare products, you can combine skin care with your selfcare routine.
The Embalm Skincare range of face and body care products makes it really easy to add selfcare to your skincare routine because the products are not only good for your skin but also for your mind and soul.
So how do you care for your skin?
With so many different face care products on the market, it’s hard to know what’s best, what products to use and in what order.
Firstly, choose all natural skin care products. The less chemicals in our lives and on our bodies the better.
The absolute essential steps in any skincare routine are cleansing, toning and moisturising.
Cleansing should always be done twice a day, in the morning and night.
Cleansers remove all makeup, toxins and dirt on the skin leaving it ready to absorb the moisturiser to rejuvenate and replenish your skin. If you wear makeup during the day, double cleansing is very important to make sure you remove all traces of makeup. A reusable makeup cloth is a great beauty tool for that.
Toners make a huge difference to how your skin looks and feels after cleansing. They remove everything the cleanser leaves behind, but also nourish and replenish your skin and improve the appearance of your skin.
Moisturisers prevent your skin from drying out, leaving your skin hydrated and smooth.
Our skin repairs itself while we sleep so don’t skip moisturising at night to give your skin the best chance to rejuvenate overnight.
Additionally, exfoliating every 2-3 days will help to remove dead skin cells to reveal radiant looking skin.
It can be just as easy to care for the skin on your body. And it’s also a little more relaxed because you can determine how often you use the pampering and nourishing products.
Just don’t forget to exfoliate regularly because the skin on your body – especially your legs- is less forgiving when you skip this step. The Invigorating Body Scrub from Embalm Skincare is the perfect selfcare/skincare treat. It not only leaves your skin silky soft and hydrated, the scent is absolutely heavenly. It’s selfcare in a pouch!
The article wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the miracle that is rosehip oil.
Rosehip oil has the potential to work wonders in your daily skincare routine. It’s superfood in a bottle and has many amazing skin benefits; moisturising, treating fine lines and wrinkles, evening out skin tone, and also helps with scars, minor burns and stretch marks.
It’s packed with beauty essentials like anti-inflammatory fatty acids and vitamins A and C, which help to treat signs of ageing and pigmentation, hydrate and repair damaged skin, and provide a strong protective antioxidant boost.
Rosehip oil is very versatile and can be used in many ways. Use it as a serum underneath your moisturiser as an additional hydration and nutrition boost for your skin.
