trending now: hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid sounds a little intimidating. In fact, if might sound like something you don’t want to put on your face! Especially if you are into natural skincare. But you can be reassured, this ingredient, when included in a natural formula will do wonders for your skin. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body. We are born with large amounts of it in our skin and it decreases as we age. Skin starts to wrinkle and lose its bounce and elasticity as time passes, but applying hyaluronic acid to your skin can help reduce these signs of stressed/aging skin.

celebrating australian ingredients

Australia’s floral kingdom has an abundance of unique plants that have healing properties for our health and wellbeing. Eucalyptus and tea tree oils are two that get a lot of press, and for good reason. We’d like to introduce you to some other botanical super heroes that are just as incredible for your skin…   The quandong is a wild bush peach native to the deserts of central and southern Australia.

sharing the love of natural with my mum

When I was a young girl, I loved watching my mum do her daily beauty routine. Even back then she used natural ingredients to look after her skin. She slept with aloe vera on her face, exfoliated with sugar and honey and only used natural creams to moisturise. I think that’s when I started to love healthy skin! My mother was a nurse, but definitely an alternative one! She is passionate about natural health and she has always relied on homemade remedies. One of the traditions we still share together is to make and apply our natural homemade mask. This Mother’s Day, I’m happy to share our favourite recipe, it’s very easy!
