Fundamentally good skincare from Elemental Herbology

I truly believe that fitness is both an internal and external philosophy. You don’t need to be totally glammed up to look fresh and healthy, but clean skin is a good indication that your insides are also fit and healthy. After all, your skin is the largest organ of your body!

My skincare regime used to involve the simplest ingredients I could find – pure aloe vera gel,  argan oil, a simple cleaner, apricot exfolliant, and SPF 50 (as I work outdoors so much). However as I’ve got older I have found that my skin has changed and the good ol’ reliable (and cheap) products I’d been using weren’t cutting the mustard, so to speak.  

So I recently leapt at the chance to try an uber-natural brand of skincare ‘Elemental Herbology‘. There’s a full range of skincare products that all smell gorgeous – just like going to a day spa. If you’ve been running around all day, there’s nothing quite as relaxing as giving yourself a mini-facial and soaking in a warm bath, and I try to recreate a spa experience in my bathroom at least once a week.

For a full week I replaced my usual skincare routine with Elemental Herbology products, and my skin certainly looked and felt smoother and calmer. Rather than list all the products I tried, I’ll highlight may favourite. The Purify and Soothe cleanser balm calmed my skin, whereas normal cleansers irritate it. The slightly oily balm is a wonderful treat at the end of a hard day, and I’m sure would dissolve any make-up (not that I wear it). Around a decade ago there was a fashion for foaming cleansers and I’m so happy that the current skincare trend is for something less drying, and the Harmonising Cleanser Oil fits the bill perfectly. Plus it smells divine in the shower. Finally the Cell Food serum is one of their hero products and according to their website:

“This anti-ageing ‘power house’ of proteins, vitamins and anti-oxidants is an essential addition to any skincare regime. An intensive dose of antioxidants and reparative nutrients helps stimulate collagen and elastin production to restore vitality and radiance and helps reduce the prevalence of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles.” Now I’m in my forties, I guess I need to start thinking about wrinkle avoidance!

I was completely impressed with the range and have already registered with the website to receive 20% off my first order. Usually I’m a harsh critic of skincare products, so it’s refreshing to try a cruelty-free range of natural products that work so well with my skin. Sadly I still  need to apply my regular SPF 50, which doesn’t smell or feel nearly as good as Elemental Herbology. But the rest of my skincare routine has been elementally transformed…
