With the welcome arrival of Spring, there is no better time to treat yourself to a soothing, restorative facial to clear away the last of the winter blues. Spring is a time of renewal, and in the same way that nature regenerates with the onset of warmer weather, you may notice a positive change in the appearance and texture of your skin. Warmer weather means higher levels of moisture in the air, which slows down your skin’s rate of cell turnover and boosts its levels of ceramides. The result is an improved barrier function, resulting in smoother, calmer skin.
To get the most from your skin’s natural spring ‘bloom’, we have created a beauty routine that will help you to literally shed your winter skin and bring on your Spring glow. We have outlined a simple home spa facial routine using our 100% certified organic products. For some extra inspiration, we were delighted that our friend @emmatara, a wellness, lifestyle and ocean lover, shared her Mokosh home spa routine with us - see the video below.
Step 1. Oil cleanse with Makeup Remover & Cleansing Oil
This is a pure oil cleanser made with botanicals chosen for their ability to deep cleanse the pores while delivering important nutrients to the skin. Unlike virtually all other cleansers, it is free of detergents and will not strip your skin of the important oils that keep your skin healthy. It is renowned for its ability to remove blackheads and whiteheads in the gentlest possible way. If you have never tried this product before, we think you’ll be impressed at how dewy it will make your skin. Find out how to use it here.
Step 2 - Cleanse and exfoliate with Facial Cleanser, Exfoliator and Mask
This is our 100% organic superfood treatment mask that removes superficial cellular debris, keeping the skin smooth and fresh. Our new formulation includes matcha green tea and 9 other powerful herbal powders, delivering humectants, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory molecules, water-soluble vitamins B and C, and α- and β- hydroxy acids known to promote cell turnover and boost collagen. Mix 1/2-1 teaspoon with water and massage gently over the skin. It can be used daily as a cleanser and micro-exfoliant, or 2-3 times per week as a detoxifying mask.
Step 3 - Pure Hydrosol Toner
Our refreshing, calming toner is a pure blend of damask rose and lemon balm, formulated for its anti-inflammatory, sebum-balancing and pH restoring properties, as well as for its ability to ease feelings of stress and anxiety. This hydrating mist is sprayed onto the skin to form an aqueous base on which to apply our water-free moisturisers. Many of our customers love to reapply it throughout the day for its hydrating and soothing benefits.
Step 4 - Elderberry & Chia or Raspberry & Pomegranate Beauty Serum
Each of our 2 serums is made with a pure blend of 10 organic botanical oils chosen for their outstanding benefits for reducing signs of ageing, delivering important nutrients and keeping the skin smooth and plump throughout the day. Both our serums and our moisturising creams include essential fatty acids which will boost your skin’s level of ceramides and help your skin develop its Spring glow! Take 3-4 drops and press onto the skin of the face, eye and neck. Choose Elderberry & Chia for oily and combination skin, and Raspberry & Pomegranate for normal, dry and mature skin.
Step 5 - Light Face Cream*
Our best-selling lightweight face cream is perfect for Spring. It includes bioactive antioxidants that neutralise free radicals and protect collagen. It is enriched with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins and other phytonutrients that deliver superior protection and potent cellular nutrition. Just a dab of this water-free cream pressed onto moist skin is sufficient to moisturise the face.
*Sensitive skin should use Pure Face & Body Cream, while dry and mature skin should use Rich Face Cream.
At Mokosh, we believe that you will never look back once you make the switch to our pure, organic, synthetic-free skin care. Like many of our customers, you may be surprised at how your skin responds when you begin to feed it with pure, 100% botanical skin food. To me, Spring is a reminder of nature’s beauty, power and intelligence. We are wise to receive her gifts in their natural form: our bodies will respond with health, which is really a return to our own unique, natural beauty.
