With spring in the air, the change in seasons brings the perfect time to realign and restore your skin to its healthy, balanced and naturally beautiful condition.
At Elemental Herbology, we base everything we do around the Five Element Theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine; a belief that all things in life, be it your body, your skin or even the seasons, are influenced by five different elements- Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.
Springtime introduces the Wood element, a time to tend to the soil before sowing the seeds. In this way, we want to decongest the skin before adding nourishment, thus restoring perfect balance.
Our Wood Balance skincare range is the perfect partner for those with normal/combination skin- a common skin concern with the change in seasons. Our Wood Balance range contains revitalising, restorative ingredients to slough away winter dullness and restore radiant, glowing skin.
Here are our top picks for healthy, balanced skin this spring.
Begin with a bath. Invigorate the mind and nourish skin with the rejuvenating blend of Rosemary, Ho Leaf and Nutmeg to relieve aches, pains and clear your senses. This 3-in-1 oil can be used in the bath, shower or used as a nourishing body oil.
Cleanse the day away with this lightweight oil-to-milk cleanser that effortlessly removes make-up, impurities and pollution. With Grapefruit, Geranium and Argan Oil to revitalise and restore the skin, and Chamomile and Raspberry Seed to reduce redness and inflammation.
Treat dullness, dryness and congestion with these pre-soaked facial pads to gently exfoliate, minimise pores and help to reduce breakouts. A blend of 5% Alpha Hydroxy Acids derived from Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Orange and Lemon safely work together to slough away dead skin cells and stimulate cell renewal. Use every other evening after cleansing to keep skin clear, calm and radiant.
Finish with this soothing daily moisturiser to protect against environmental damage, balance congestion and rehydrate the skin. With nutrient-rich algae and lupin proteins to improve skin hydration, zinc, magnesium and copper to revitalise the skin and Apple Serum to help keep breakouts at bay.
