Self Care Sunday | The Beauty Edit
‘We are living in a current time where most people are focusing on how to live more sustainably, connecting with more natural ways of being and consciously feeding ourselves with the good stuff. Our skin, just like the seasons goes through several changeable phases and there are many wholesome ways to maintain ourselves through the colder months ahead.
If you reside by the coast you may have seen clusters of orange around you, Sea Buckthorn trees are again in season and found on coastlines across the UK. This ancient tree produces glossy orange berries that harness Omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9 and also include UV protection benefits! We add organic and cold pressed Sea Buckthorn Oil into our Down to Earth Natural Soap which leaves your skin feeling purified, nourished and fed.
Native to the UK, the vibrant red berry Rosehip is loaded with Vitamin C, soothes inflammation and most skin irritations. Rose Hips also improve circulation that include warming benefits, the oil in particular injects plenty of hydration through times when our skin needs that extra nourishment
All of these wonderful plants and natural remedies for the skin are in season, it makes perfect sense to synergise ourselves with the seasons to live more sustainably and consciously.’ - Harriet, Herbalist and Founder of West Apothecary
