let it breathe

8 Jul

Do you go days without makeup to let your skin breathe? You should if you don’t… I rate it highly, alongside haloumi cheese, cupcakes and puppy snuggles. I usually choose one day of the weekend when I know I’m just going to be slothing around the house cleaning, watching The Vampire Diaries and doing the grocery shopping, and today was one of those days!

Here I am without makeup on today…

I feel like my skin benefits greatly from letting it “breathe” for the day. To give it the best chance at refreshing, I cleansed my face this morning with a natural exfoliant. It’s by Wild Nature which can be found here and it is great to use first thing in the mornings to slough away the dead skin cells that have built up and also stimulate the blood flow to the skin to give your face a healthy glow.

The Wild Nature Face & Body Exfoliant (AU$33.00) containing pure Aloe Vera and crushed Almond Shell is a gentle face & body polish that removes dead skin cells. Giving you that deep cleanse needed to ensure that new cells can develop and surface. A twice weekly application that leaves your skin fresh, stimulated, smooth and hydrated.

Aloe Vera is great for stimulating the natural healing mechanisms of the body. Some of the most prominent active ingredients contained in Aloe Vera are:

  • Vitamins A, C, E, B, B12, Choline, Folic Acid
  • 7 of the 8 essential amino acids
  • 9 essential minerals such as Calcium, Copper, Chromium, Magnesium, Iron, Potassium, Zinc, Sodium, and Manganese.
  • Enzymes

Wow that’s a lot right? Using this just twice a week is all that is needed for brighter and more radiant skin.

And back to letting it breathe… it needs a break from all the makeup. So please, when you are at home and you’re reaching for the makeup just think “do I really need to put my face on today?”. If you can do without… DO! Your skin will thank you for it.

Oh but please remember to still wear sunscreen. This is a MUST!

Tell me hautees, will you be giving your skin a day off soon?
Please do, then Tweet or Facebook me if you do. I would love to know who’s giving their skin a little breather.

    Soooo agree with this! I’m a big fan of giving my skin a day off. Although I could do with a bit more exfoliation. It’s one of those things I don’t do as often as I should!
