THE THREE PRINCIPLES

We believe there’s a magic trilogy when it comes to discovering your most radiant skin.

  • 1.

    OUTER CARE, the external surface - traditionally known as ‘skincare’.

  • 2.

    INNER NOURISHMENT, internal vitality - cultivated through our intake of vitamins, antioxidants, proteins and good fats.

  • 3.

    MENTAL WELLBEING, a mindful state of being - an awareness of how our emotional lives impact our overall health, including, of course, our skin’s.

When these three principles are aligned, our skin looks and feels at its finest.

OUTER CARE

Our skin, like every other part of our body, is in a continuous process of repair and regeneration. In fact, our skin will completely regenerate itself approximately every 27 days. As we age however, the turnover rate slows down. In fact, before we reach adulthood, our skin only takes an average of 10 days to regenerate! Quicker regeneration means newer and fresher skin cells, which translates to healthier, smoother and more glowing skin. 

Proper cleansing and exfoliation is also a key component of acne and breakout management. If we do not properly cleanse and remove the build up of oils, pollutants and makeup, these combine on our skin and clog our pores, leading to breakouts, uneven skin texture and acne.

The solution is to cleanse the skin regularly, and use gentle exfoliants to lift up and free the surface layer of dead skin and buildup. 

The CLARIFY & BRIGHTEN FACE MASK has been specifically designed to target exfoliation on all layers of the epidermis, from the outer to the very inner. The mask’s ratio of acids has been balanced to an optimum pH level, enabling it to be as effective as possible whilst always respecting its acid mantle. On top of its exfoliating properties, the it also works on a detoxifying level as the bentonite and kaolin clays contained within it clear out oil and pore clogging bacteria. Meanwhile, the sulfur found in the mask targets fungal acne, the zinc oxide treats inflammation, and aloe vera, cucumber and niacinamide ensure the skin soothed and nourished.

The PURIFY & COMFORT FACE CLEANSER is a gentle yet purifying gel to milk cleanser that is perfect for daily use. It effortlessly removes impurities, excess oil, makeup, SPF and pollution from the skin whilst simultaneously respecting the skin’s moisture barrier by never over drying or irritating, leaving skin feeling clean, refreshed and soft. A gentle blend of fruit enzymes, vitamin C, as well as salicylic and glycolic acids aids in clearing deep within the pores to diminish breakouts and help brighten and smooth the skin, whilst botanical amino acids, aloe vera, glycerin and plant-derived squalane strengthen and leave skin feeling nourished and hydrated.

ACTION FOR BEST RESULTS:

Set up a simple skincare routine of cleanser, serum and moisturizer with a weekly mask treatment.

INNER NOURISHMENT

A healthy diet not only affects our energy levels, metabolism, and even our immune system, but it also directly impacts the appearance of our skin.         

Our cells are the building blocks of our bodies. So if we want healthy, vibrant and well-nourished cells, we must give our body healthy, vibrant and nourishing foods to make them. 

Overly processed and high sugar foods are highly inflammatory and contribute to a huge amount of illnesses and diseases today. As well as causing damage our internal organs, excess inflammation also wrecks havoc on our external skin, making it oily, prone to acne and lacking in natural collagen and elasticity.   

Anti inflammatory foods like spinach, cucumbers, avocados, berries, wild salmon, walnuts, carrots and dark leafy greens contain a rainbow of nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants to fuel your body, skin cells and life as while.

ACTION FOR BEST RESULTS:

Boost your diet with a variety of anti inflammatory foods, rich in vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients, which benefit your skin, digestive and hormonal health.

MENTAL WELLBEING

Have you noticed how your skin shines (in a great way!) when you’ve just finished a great workout, had a wonderful vacation or after laughing with a friend? It’s no secret that our emotional state has a real and tangible effect on the state of our body and skin.

But do you know why? And how?

In times of high stress our body releases a hormone called cortisol. Overproduction of cortisol causes the immune system to weaken as it increases inflammation and slows down reparations in the body.

So we can take all the care in the world when it comes to what we eat and what we put on our skin, but if our nervous system is overworked then it’s impossible for our bodies to function at their best.

Everybody has their own antidotes to stress. For us, taking time to focus on gratitude, being mindful in our actions and activities, being present with others, spending time in nature and exercising all work wonders.

Ancient Egyptian, Roman, Chinese and Greek cultures all used crystals and minerals as forms of physical, mental and spiritual remedies. We love them too, which is why all NOURISHED3 products are infused with healing crystals. Our Clarify & Brighten Mask contains ultra finely-milled amethyst powder to amp up the effectiveness of the ingredients and their communication with our skin cells.

ACTION FOR BEST RESULTS:

Find moments each day to be present and feel appreciation and love for your body, the food on your plate and the planet we inhabit.
