We all want beautiful skin. Even if you sleep well, drink water, cut caffeine & alcohol, exercise, eat clean & green, cleanse, tone, moisturise – you can still end up with something you don’t like about your skin. These days, social media can make us feel like our skin is flawed. We have to remind ourselves most of what we see online is edited, photoshopped, airbrushed, filtered and often involves a hundred products to get that one shot. We know this, but still, we all want perfect airbrushed-in-real-life skin! There’s redness, dry patches, dark circles, pregnancy pigmentation, hormonal breakouts and those weird giant spots that pop up out of nowhere… welcome to reality and real skin. Through all of these little changes, or issues that can feel like big problems as we struggle to resolve them – we have to love our skin.
Our skin is our largest organ, we really need to take care of it! An easy way to do so is by using products with antioxidants. We often hear the word antioxidants in our skincare products, but what does it actually mean? Here is a brief article about them and why to include them in your daily skincare routine. Let’s start from our inner body, our molecules. All living things contain molecules, which contain atoms each one with a proton (positive charge), neutron (neutral charge) and electron (negative charge). When an electron is lost then we have a Free Radical hanging around. Free Radicals can be caused by stress, non-balanced diet, lack of sleep, or environmental causes like pollution, alcohol, smoke, pesticides etc. This is not something you want as they immediately look for another electron to pair up with, usually taking it from a healthy stable molecule and causing oxidation. This oxidation is what accelerates the ageing process, but this is where antioxidants step in, they stabilise a free radical and stop its search …
I remember when I was a little girl and I used to watch my mum doing her makeup. I was amazed. I loved the colours, the powders and the sparkles. I can say that the person who started me on makeup was my mum. And I’m very thankful that the person I love the most is a connection to my passion When we are young, the moment we start using makeup is as important as the day we buy our first bra or our first pair of heels. We all remember the first time we applied liner and the fear we had of poking our eye. So what´s better than taking this step that connects us more as mother and daughter in a fun and relaxed way. That´s why I’m going to give you some tips to guide your daughter to a clean, conscious & curious beauty lifestyle. First of all, it is important to leave prohibitions aside. Since I was young, makeup has been a way of expression and I´m thankful that my mum …

Our brand was founded by Ere Perez, you probably know that by now. But did you know that her husband, Juan, is a co-founder? Juan has been a vital member of the team since day 1. Juan was recently interviews by Cosmetics Design and we wanted to share his words with you so you could get to know our CEO. We have always been a business of family and friends, and we love introducing our team to you! For us, our brand is about people and love. Here’s some info from Juan from the original interview… “Our brand was born in 2004. Like most family business it started humbly from the sunroom of our apartment in Tamarama, Sydney.”
Two of the biggest stressors for our skin are the sun, and pollution. We can wear hats and apply SPF for sun protection – protecting against pollution is more complicated. The urban areas we live & work in are usually polluted. Smog from cars, congestion, lack of green spaces all contribute to an environment that is not always skin-friendly. Invisible particles in the air can clog pores, affect skin health and contribute to lines developing. You know when you haven’t binged on junk food or alcohol, you’ve exercised nearly every day and still – you wake up on a Sunday morning with redness or a breakout? Sometimes, pollution is the villain… We can’t do much about the pollution that gets on our skin as we wait for the bus, catch the subway or take a stroll to the neighbourhood park, we can do a lot about getting it off. This is our best defence… remove remove remove!

My brand is one of my greatest loves. Beginning in Bondi, it has grown and expanded all the way to New York! We recently travelled to the Big Apple with my family and team of amazing people who put so much love and passion into Ere Perez. We met incredible people, trained our new distributors and exhibited our hearts out to thousands of people. For a small brand that began in Australia, we have loved the journey of sharing our products with people all over the world. Expanding to the US was a highlight of 2018. Seeing people discover our products, learn about the brand and explore our makeup & skincare made me so happy!
