Why should I Detox?
We will do our skin a great service, if we help it to detox by applying natural ingredients that can work their way inside and do a gentle, natural cleaning.
Fruits and vegetables with their minerals, enzymes and vitamins are natural skin detoxifiers. Sour fruits and berries with abundant vitamin C, such as oranges, kiwi, cranberries, strawberries, black current will naturally help the skin to produce collagen, while eliminating dead skin cells and regenerating new ones. There are also wonderful oils, herbs and spices that can help the skin to expel toxins.

Why change menu items seasonally?
What are the different needs of the four seasons?
In Autumn we must deal with tanned and dried out skin which may have produced fine lines. To combat this, healing oil masks, herbs such as camomile, rowan, calendula, honey, seasonal crops of pumpkin, carrots, zucchini, persimmon, pomegranate and more will do its good for returning skin to its supple and plump state.
Winter is a tough season for skin and the special care is crucial. The contrast between outside and inside temperatures is a burden for the skin. Effort should be made to preserve and increase moisture reserves and add oils with Omega 3, Omega 6 for skin. Avocado, hemp, jojoba and coconut oils, shea and cocoa butter, honey and milk - these are some recommended natural ingredients for the winter months.
In Spring the skin is overworked after winter and has used up its supply of vitamins and nutrients. This can be seen in a pale and tired complexion. To improve this, antioxidants are the must: green tea, goji berries, cocoa powder, wild rose, sea algae, ginseng. Also a strong influx of vitamin C inspired treatments, using citrus fruits (lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruits) will give your skin a necessary boost to last until summer’s new crops appear.
