THE THREE PRINCIPLES
We believe there’s a magic trilogy when it comes to discovering your most radiant skin. When these three principles are aligned, our skin looks and feels at its finest. This is what the " 3 " in Nourished3 stands for.
1. OUTER CARE
SKINCARE - 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.
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.
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.
CALM & HYDRATE OIL-FREE MOISTURIZER
is a easy to wear, effective moisturizer suitable for all skin types. specifically designed for sensitive and blemish-prone skin. Five types of hyaluronic acid penetrate deep within the skin layers to plump and hydrate. Active ingredients, niacinamide, vitamin E, green tea and chamomile, work throughout the day to nourish, restore and protect the skin. This pH balanced, unscented and silicone-free moisturizer is specifically formulated for sensitive, blemish-prone, and lackluster skin types.
Set up a simple skincare routine of a weekly mask treatment, daily cleanser, serum, and moisturizer. Exfoliate, cleanse and hydrate the skin regularly to lift and free the surface layer of dead skin and buildup.
2. INNER NOURISHMENT
SUPPLEMENTS & FOODS - A well-balanced and nutritious diet is a cornerstone of our overall health, impacting not only our energy levels, metabolism, and immune system's strength but also the condition of our skin, one of the most visible indicators of our well-being. Our body's fundamental units, the cells, rely on the nutrients we provide to thrive. To ensure healthy, vibrant, and well-nourished cells, we must nourish our body with wholesome and nourishing foods.
Conversely, heavily processed and high-sugar foods are widely recognized for their inflammatory properties and their association with a wide range of contemporary illnesses and diseases. Notably, these dietary choices not only harm our internal organs but also unleash excessive inflammation, which takes a toll on our external skin. This results in increased oil production, heightened susceptibility to acne, and a decline in the skin's natural collagen and elasticity, collectively diminishing the overall health and appearance of our skin.
Boost your diet with a variety of anti-inflammatory foods, rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and nutrients, which benefit your skin, digestive, and hormonal health. Incorporating anti-inflammatory foods like spinach, cucumbers, avocados, berries, wild salmon, walnuts, carrots, and dark leafy greens can provide a rainbow of nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants to fuel your body, skin cells, and overall well-being. Nutraceuticals and supplements can also be a great support in ensuring you get the necessary nutrients, especially when a balanced diet may be challenging to maintain.
3. MENTAL WELLBEING
INNER BALANCE - We've heard it all too often: " I've tried the best skin care, but my skin problems persist. "
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. So, why does this happen? And how does it work?
We are aware that true beauty and well-being are based not only on the care of the external but also on our body's internal and spiritual aspects. We look at both external and internal factors and consider the mental part because stress can, for example, disrupt the hormonal balance and contribute to the development of acne. In times of high stress, our body releases a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol, in particular, is our biggest enemy. Overproduction of cortisol causes the immune system to weaken, increasing inflammation and slowing down reparations in the body.
The gut-brain-skin axis and its connection to acne is a concept close to our hearts and supported by extensive research. More and more studies are linking the presence of a "gut-brain-skin axis" that connects gut health, emotions, and skin homeostasis.
A growing body of research links stressful emotions to a change in the gut microbiome, which promotes inflammation in the body and skin and leads to acne. Nourished3 spiritual beings through aromatherapy and mindfulness, promote a healthy skin microbiome, restore a healthy, balanced skin microbiome, and protect the skin barrier for clear and healthy skin. 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.
