Protect, detoxify and nourish your skin
Stressful busy lifestyles, inconsistent diets and lack of sleep can all have a harmful impact on our complexions. Plus, the combination of the ozone depletion, increasing pollution and climate changes wreak havoc on our health, and unfortunately signs can usually show up first on our skin. Due to all the environmental pollutants in the air, our skin needs much more help these days than just healthy food and sleep. It requires daily protection as well as weekly deep cleansing. Dull, uneven skin texture or acne starts when the pores become clogged with dirt, toxins and sebum (oil produced by the skin). It’s necessary to cleanse twice a day with a gentle cleanser. The Shiso Facial Cleanser soothes and softens skin while it gently cleanses and helps purify the delicate skin on the face. Thann’s Face Care products all contain powerful natural antioxidants that are essential for fighting free-radicals caused by pollution. Once or twice a week, it’s vital to scrub away rough skin and dead skin cells in order to start revealing a brighter complexion. You can do this while nourishing your skin with the Oatmeal Face Scrub which contains antioxidants and vitamins A, B and C. Exfoliating is important before a weekly 15 minute detoxifying treatment. The Detoxifying Clay Mask clarifies skin by absorbing toxins and dirt that become embedded in the pores while the rice bran oil deeply nourishes. Rice bran oil is also a main ingredient in the Rice Extract Moisturizing Cream which acts as natural U.V protection as well as provides daily natural antioxidants to the face (3 vitamin Es). It is non-comedogenic meaning it will never clog pores.
