Last year was full of challenges, highs and lows… one of our highs was most definitely training beauticians at beauty colleges on our Moroccan Essentials (ME) Hammam spa products and traditional cleansing rituals. Another high was celebrating Moroccan Essentials 1st year at our shop in London.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for shopping at our boutique and online, your custom is what keeps ME providing you with great skincare.
What are your new skin care resolution this year? Is it a new skin care routine? If not, it should be!
When I studied beauty therapy 13 years ago, I would always remember my teacher saying, the secret to clear, healthy, glowing, youthful skin is simple, Cleanse, Tone and Moistures, twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, you’ll see the benefits now and in the next 10 years, she was right, 13 year later I have been told on numerous occasion I have clear skin and look 10 years younger than my age.
Removing your make-up at night is a very important part of maintaining a clear complexion and avoiding spots and acne.
For women older than 30 it becomes a vital part of maintaining a youthful appearance because base or foundation that is left on all night will dry out the skin and clog the pores which is a common cause of skin break outs…. And if you leave your mascara on all night it dries your eyelashes, which causes them to crack and break off.
The Importance Of Cleansing, Toning And Moisturising:
This is one of the most important parts of your daily skin care routine, because a toner lowers the skins pH level, calms the skin and helps prepare it for any of the night creams or serums that will follow. It also helps to balance the skin after cleansing and before applying a moisturiser.
Rose, orange blossom, geranium or lavender make excellent toners because they are totally natural and bring you great skin-conditioning benefits. Soak two cotton wool pads with our Rose water or orange flower blossom water for sensitive skin, which is an all in 1 cleanser and toner and sweep across the face and neck with upward and outward movements.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Don’t skip the moisturiser! Your skin needs to be replenished each night after and day of exposure to the environment and wearing make-up. During this stage don’t forget your lips since the skin over the lips is thinner than anywhere else on the face. Your choice of moisturisers should include natural ingredients with proven benefits such as pure Argan oil and/or essential oils. The use of active botanical extracts and oils has been shown to improve skin elasticity, texture, clarity, fine lines and wrinkles. Why not try our Argan oil with Rose?
One final thought; your cleansing routine shouldn’t be reserved just for the evening. Cleaning make-up and daily dirt from your face is definitely important, but cleansing away the dead cells and pillow stuff in the morning after waking up can be just as important before putting on new make-up for your brand new day.
Invest in ME, invest in your skin.
