In the course of my many years as a Beauty Therapist and the hundreds of facial treatments I’ve done for clients, I became well aware that women worry about the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging of their face, but tend to forget about the fragile neck skin just below. Degraded collagen and a loss of elasticity make all your skin, not just your face, more prone to wrinkles, sagging, and discolouration as you age. In fact, the skin on the neck is even thinner than on the face, making it even more vulnerable to fine lines and sun damage so it is vital to use specialised products to nurture your neck!

Product Focus: Hair Masques

Hair masques can be your saving grace when your hair is dry and damaged or if you’re trying to grow your hair long but healthy. In our quick-fix and fast-paced lives we expect an instant solution, but true results in hair care come from consistent routine and correct use of a product.

A hair masque differs to a conditioner in that it restores manageability from inside the hair shaft, whereas a conditioner cares for the outside. To penetrate the hair it therefore takes more time for a hair masque to do it’s job. This is especially true for natural masques which work in nature’s time, it takes as long as it needs to work!

Aromatherapy involves the artful blending of essential oils derived from plants, roots, barks, leaves, flowers and fruit to alleviate pain, calm the mind and body and bring about a feeling of happiness and health.

It is an indisputable fact that perfume wearing is an indulgent pleasure, a dab of your favourite fragrance carries with it the promise of nostalgia, excitement, celebration or even romance. In the words of Green Goddesses Sarah Stacey and Josephine Fairley, “it makes you feel delicious!”

Historically, fragrances were derived from real plants and their distilled waters and essential oils, the Egyptians were making Lilly perfume from as early as 4th century BC! But in modern times (post 1882) synthetic ingredients started to creep into the industry and it was Chanel No 5 that really put these synthetics on the map. Nowadays, mainstream fragrances are almost entirely composed of synthetic notes derived in laboratories which mimic natural scents.

“Nature’s beauty bounty” – oils provide concentrated goodness and don’t need preservatives, making them the ultimate natural beauty treatment.

Facial Oils are all about complexion perfection, despite what conventional wisdom may tell you about oils on the skin causing break-outs, clogging pores and leaving a slick of grease! Essential oils have been used for centuries to conquer skin conditions, they have a natural affinity for skin and contain a potent blend of antioxidants and vitamins essential for a healthy complexion. Due to their small molecular structure, these oils actually penetrate the skin quickly and absorb easily into the epidermal layers leaving a smooth and silky finish.
