Where does anti ageing and caring for your skin begin? Most of us invest in expensive creams, serums, gels and what not. But we forget about cleansing. Isn’t that where it all begins? Prepping our skin by getting rid of all the dirt, bacteria and oil that gets built up over the period of day or night time, is a basic but very important step. We need to ensure the products that we use for cleansing isn’t harsh or has too many chemicals as it will strip your skin of the “good” oil leaving it prone to inflammation, acne and dry skin.
I was fortunate enough to include three really amazing cleansing products from BeeBio into my daily and weekly skin prep regime.
- 16+ Active Manuka Honey Facial Cleanser
- Active 16+ Manuka Honey, Bee Venom, & Rotorua LAVA Mud Masque
- Active Manuka Honey Skin Brightening Toner
The key ingredients in this cleanser are 16+ Manuka Honey, Avocado oil, jojoba oil, mandarin oil, rosehip oil, shea butter. This cleanser is also 100% vegetarian. All these ingredients work together to clean your skin and leave it feeling balanced and hydrated. 16+ Manuka Honey is medical grade which provides anti-bacterial benefits. From my last post on the “Ageless Skin- Starts Right Here” we know how Manuka Honey helps heal acne, repair skin ( in turn help with anti-ageing) and hydrates skin. Mandarin and rosehip oil both contain properties for skin healing while avocado and shea butter contain essential fatty acids and antioxidants to reduce inflammation.
How I use it
- Double cleansing- this is to ensure I get right into the pore the second time as the first time you cleanse you are just removing the oil and dirt from the top layer of skin
- After using this for a month I have noted the redness of my skin reduce significantly.
I made sure I incorporated this mud mask into my skin cleansing routine once a week at least. The results were amazing to say the least! The mud mask left my skin feeling fresh, smooth and glowing after each use. The mask helps get rid of blackheads and heat rashes around the face.
This mask is rich in minerals from the volcanic Rotorua White Mineral Mud with Active 16+ Manuka Honey, Pure Bee Venom and sunflower seed. Health benefits of minerals from volcanic mud is purification of skin and exfoliating properties that help heal damaged skin. As you would have read on from my last post on Ageless Skin- Starts Right Here, bee venom helps with the healing and anti-ageing. Sunflower oil is rich in minerals and anti-oxidants which again, helps with skin-inflammation and with acne prone skin
Use this mask as spot treatment for those stubborn acne that pops up. The acne will visibly disappear the next day.
Toner (or as I like to call it “The Golden Liquid”
Having added this Toner to my daily routine, I have seen so many benefits. My skin’s complexion is brighter and has got a glow to it. I have received so many compliments on how good my skin looks and I have to give most of the credit to this particular Toner.
Key ingredients in this bottle of gem are : Active 16+ Manuka Honey, helping restoration of skin, while a high concentrate of Vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of skin pigmentation.
How I use it
I apply the toner on my face and neck after cleansing every morning and every night before applying any other moisturiser.
