Spring Clean those pores!

Spring has officially sprung! The flowers are blooming, the bees are buzzing, and with every new season comes a change in our skin’s natural balance. Unlike in winter, the warmer weather brings fresh, rejuvenated skin, and spring cleaning your pores can be a great way to shed the winter blues. For fabulous skin, follow these top tips:

Clean out your cupboards

Although many people ignore the labels, your skincare and cosmetic products do have a shelf life. Spring cleaning is a great opportunity to clear out your cupboards and get rid of outdated products that may be gathering dust.

After a while, your makeup products will lose their effectiveness, so be sure to throw away anything that is past its expiration date, anything that appears to be dried out or broken, and anything that has changed in consistency or colour. You won’t get the same results from old makeup, and you are likely to see your skin break out more often from
the bacteria build-up.

Some products have an expiration date printed on the packaging, others don’t. You should be looking to get rid of your mascara after 3-6 months (or when it goes a bit clumpy!), and your foundation after 1 year. Powders and bronzers should normally be tossed at around 18 months (or if they change colour or break), and your eyeliner could last anywhere between 3 months and 3 years, depending on the ingredients!

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!

Winter is over and it’s time for fresh, renewed skin! During the cold weather, most of our body is covered in warm clothing so we ignore dry and broken skin building up on our feet, knees, elbows and more.

Spring is a great time to buff away those dead skin cells, boost circulation and reveal fresh, glowing skin all over. Our Face Smooth Brightening Polish is a fantastic natural exfoliating scrub to gently remove any build-up and leave smooth, supple skin that you’ll be happy to show off!

If you’re getting your pins out early this year, our Body Smooth Refreshing Polish will leave your legs feeling silky smooth, even in those notoriously rough skinned areas
like heels and knees!

Deep clean those pores

After you have exfoliated, it’s time to deeply cleanse your pores and make way for gorgeous skin! For a really intense, deep clean, our founder Susan Ma recommends steaming your face with Green Tea for a spring skin detox, and then applying a thin layer of our Radiance Clay Mask. Apply this mask for an all over cleanse, or dot onto individual spots overnight to reduce inflammation and redness, then rinse off.

This super cleansing mask is enriched with Green Clay, Goji Berry Extract and Guarana Seeds, and is designed to draw impurities to the surface of the skin while introducing essential nutrients back into the pores.

Let skin breathe

As the evenings get lighter, you might be venturing out of the house for longer during the day, meaning your makeup stays on longer too. To avoid clogged pores, be sure to remove any heavy makeup when you don’t need it – a few makeup free hours every day will allow skin to breathe.

If you don’t fancy being completely au naturale, then a light layer of makeup is all that’s needed. A dusting of our Mineral Foundation may be all you need to look fresh
this season!

Our fresh, natural ingredients are ideal for a clean, rejuvenated complexion this season and following these tips in your spring skincare routine will leave you with visibly
clearer and brighter skin!

Tropic Sun Drops

image

** Fab review from one of my own lovely customers **

SunDrops:
A novice tanner, I was nervous about using this but found it was so easy, and you are ultimately in control! Just one droplet of this lovely thick, caramel liquid into the palm of your hand with your evening moisturiser, mix and then apply to your face..so easy! And I noticed the change the next day, though very subtle. Day 2 I got bolder with 2 drops in my evening moisturiser and again, I noticed the change the next morning, but not too exaggerated. It really evens out your skin tone and complexion, to the point that I didn’t feel the need to wear makeup for the week! It gave my skin a natural glow and just so easy to apply. No need to apply daily though!
My only tip is that when you do use it and rub  it in, make sure you rub all over your face, into the hairline and down your neck for the ‘natural look’. Definitely ordering this for myself 🙂

Tropic Elixir Oil

Tropic Elixir OIl

 

One of our most popular Tropic products and here’s why……

This fabulous Oil, in its beautiful new bottle, is a result of over 10 years research into natural plant oils and their effects on the skin. Our complex blend of Kiwi and Pomegranate seed, Rosehip and Golden Jojoba work in harmony to improve skin elasticity, giving noticeably smoother, more supple and youthful skin in just 4 weeks!

The ‘hero ingredient’ is Moringa Oil, derived from the ‘Miracle Tree’. Boasting 1,700 antioxidants and enriched with natural Vitamin C, Moringa Oil is a natural skin brightener- you can see why we named it ‘Elixir’!

Here are just some of the many benefits of Moringa Oil

Absorbs easily into the skin, improving the appearance and radiance of skin. It has skin healthy nutrients like vitamin A, which helps build collagen in the skin, vitamin C to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and the healing and anti-inflammatory benefits of vitamin E.

Help for dry skin

It softens dry skin and maintains moisture in the skin.
It is good for conditioning dry, chapped lips.
It’s beneficial to treat rough, dry skin conditions like dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.
More help for dry skin.

Anti-ageing properties

It rejuvenates dull, tired and aging skin.
Antioxidants and nutrients help fight free radical damage that can cause skin tissue damage and lead to the formation of wrinkles.
Moringa oil helps improve the appearance of wrinkles and prevents sagging of facial muscles.
Plant hormones called cytokinins, which help promote cell growth and delay damage and destruction of skin tissues.
Vitamin C stabilizes collagen and helps reduce fine lines and repair damaged skin cells.
Antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties

Moringa oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and has been used to treat and heal minor skin abrasions; minor cuts and scrapes, bruises, burns, insect bites, rashes, and sunburn and skin infections.
Acne & dark spot prevention

Moringa oil helps clear blackheads and pimples. When used regularly helps prevent the reoccurrence of blemishes.
Helps minimize dark spots from acne and hyperpigmentation.
