Layering for your skins

Our needs change day to day, so are our skin's needs.  

Some days your skin needs more nurturing and other days, it only needs a little support.  

Depending on our activities, the weather, the time of the day the skin needs different skincare going from fast absorbing calendula oil, to Extra Light moisturiser or even Super Rich and slow to penetrates the skin layers.  These products can offer great results.

Having products with different speed of absorption allow us to select the best option to nurture, hydrate, and care for your skin for the day.  Whether your skin is dry, red, dull, normal, oily, irritated, mature, this approach can be applied with ease and just some observation.

What is layering skincare?

It is a practice where skincare product are applied one layer at a time. It consists of first lightly washing the skin, pat it dry, apply a light product such as a botanical oil, and followed by a moisturiser which can be light or rich. Doing this practice, keeps the moisture of the water locked in while allowing skincare to absorb into the skin to nurture and hydrate. Regular practice of this method bring excellent results for all skin type.

Which products do you recommend for layering skincare?

We recommend to first apply a few drops of our calendula infused oil followed by either an ultra light, light, rich or very rich moisturiser. The best option is based on your skin's needs. The drier the skin, the richer the moisturiser needs to be.
