My approach to skincare has always been relaxed at best. Some mild exfoliator or soap to cleanse my face each morning, and the odd bit of moisturiser when it was deemed necessary. Minimal yes, but not enough to achieve that effortlessly flawless skin that I’ve so been craving.
After a couple of minor break outs due to alternating between skincare brands, I finally found myself delving into the world of beauty, devouring each and every recommendation, tip, and ‘secret’ that it had to offer. I’d heard good, no, great things about Grown Alchemist; and with the words 100% certified organic, I was hooked. Fast forward to early November, and in a somewhat serendipitously timed sale, I found myself purchasing a generous selection from Grown’s skincare range.
My experience so far has been overwhelmingly positive, as each morning I find myself enchanted by the soft soothing scents of rose, geranium and sweet summer berries. My skin has been left feeling smooth and silky, enhancing my natural disposition to believe that organic truly is best. And so, just like that, my skincare regime changed; for the better too.
I start my mornings by splashing some warm water on my face, gently rubbing the cleanser into my skin before rinsing it off; making sure to follow with some cool water on my skin (to close the pores). I follow up with a small amount of toner, and carefully dab a small amount of serum to my forehead and the corners of my eyes. Lastly, I rub moisturiser onto my face and neck in a soft, circular motion. Every third day, I exfoliate, and once a week, I use a skin masque to remove any impurities from my pores.
