We tend to forget the importance of a proper facial routine for our beauty regime. Facials ensure the skin is deep cleansed providing a smooth surface for skin care products and make up. Some beauticians will recommend facials to be done every fortnight. Unfortunately time sometimes does not permit that. This is where I found Au Natural Rotorua White Mud, exfoliating masque with Active 16+ Manuka Honey really good as a home treatment. I have added this to my normal skin regime once a week in between my monthly facials and it has worked wonders on me! It works really well as spot treatment for acne as well.
I have used this mask quite religiously, especially when my acne was really bad. Anti helped to cool my skin down on the days when my acne was inflamed and even helped the appearance of the acne reduce.
The balance mask contains minerals from Rotorua white mud, which helps to detoxifies skin and helps the regeneration of new skin cells. Active 16+ Honey has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti ageing properties that help heal your skin. Active 16+ honey also a humectant that attracts water within the skin, which improves skins moisture and texture. The mask also contains pure bee venom which is another magical ingredient that fights the signs of ageing. The sunflower seed oil is a great source of Vitamin E and is super rich in antioxidants and nutrients, helping skin to reduce redness, inflammation, acne and skin irritation.
How to apply
- Apply an even layer on your skin after cleansing ( I use a brush to help me!)
- Leave on for 20-30mins
- Wash off once dry
- Easy Peasy!!
I am continuously looking for ways to make the appearance of my skin better and better. I definitely feel like you can never have “too much glow”. AU Natural’s Super fruit Eye Serum and Anti Ageing Face Oil are the perfect addition to your morning and night routine to ensure you get that glow.
A lot of us don’t really give eye serums an importance in our beauty regime and end up only focusing on other areas of our skin. One of the main causes of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area is dehydration. A face moisturiser cannot be used as a substitute for an eye serum as it is too thick for the skin around the eye to absorb product, therefore a waste. Serums are a much high concentration but a thinner consistency so the soft skin around the eye can absorb this. Keeping the area around your eyes hydrated will mean your are fighting against fine lines, wrinkles and dark under eye spots.
AU Natural’s Super Fruit Eye Serum contains active ingredients such as, New Zealand Avocado Oil ( rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, Vitamins A, D & E, potassium and lecithin, which are primary skin feeding nutrients), 9 berry extracts (such as acai, bilberry, strawberry, black mulberry and many other berries that provide health for the skin) and Ribrose ( a sugar that occurs in all living cells accelerating cell energy recovery and overall function- helping fight towards ageing). These products sink into the dermal layer helping to plump skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Anti Ageing Face Oil
Suffering from acne and an oily skin tone, the idea of a “face oil” always terrified me. I became under the false understanding that face oils clog pores and promote acne. Its actually on the contrary. A good face oil will help the hydration of your skin which in turn will stop your skin from producing excess oil to try and hydrate itself.
AU Natural’s Anti Ageing Face Oil contains Harakeke seed oil and Retinol which helps minimise the signs of ageing, plump skin, leaving back no oil residue and hydrating skin which then stops skin from producing extra sebum. Key ingredients in this product are New Zealand Harakeke seed oil which is pack with linoleum acid ( boosting skin’s barrier layer and helping to seal in natural moisture), the seeds are rich in Omega 3, Omega 6 and essential fatty acids that can regulate cell function. The second ingredient is Moringa Oil, which has antibacterial and moisturising properties which helps strengthen skin and help is protect again the environment and allergen substances. The final key ingredient is Lakesis, which is derived from resin produced in ancient trees in Greece, this increases the synthesis of to youth proteins and reactivates the detoxifying process of the skin. This product works in perfect harmony with the other AU Natural product range and can be used by the whole family, drops can even be used for removal of stretch marks.
