All About Acne

All About Acne is an in-depth look at the roller coaster that a passionate skinnyskinny customer went through to get clear skin! Most of us have been there, but to differing degrees.

Breakouts, blemishes, acne: no matter what you call it, there's no way around it, "problem skin" as it is sometimes referred to can be absolutely exhausting. And for those who suffer from acne, there isn't much that you wouldn't do to see clear skin. I know, I was there before. Years after getting through the monster that is puberty mostly unscathed in terms of acne, my skin took a turn for the worst.
       

Want to go CLEAN..............??

Do you want to reduce the number of toxic chemicals your body is absorbing?

I couldn’t tell you the number of times we have been asked- "so, I want to use chemical free skincare products, but where do I start, there are so many to choose from?".....

 

1. Read the labels, do your homework.......


Yes, there are many options to choose from out there in the big wide world of skincare products, and not all of them contain high quality chemical free ingredients. Unfortunately a product can be labelled organic or natural and still contain nasty chemicals, so you really need to carefully examine the ingredients list. There is nothing worse than thinking you are doing the right thing by eliminating nasty chemicals and then ending up just wasting your money!!

Cleanse Skincare has done the tricky work for you and found the best products from around the world. When you purchase something from Cleanse Skincare you can be assured that it does not contain any of the chemicals listed in our “no-go” ingredient list. And believe me, we have a tough policy, we get approached so often to sell brands which look fantastic, but we dig deep, really deep and often one tiny little ingredient will knock them out.

 

2. Replace your crap filled products as you finish them with new clean products.


In an ideal world we would recommend that you throw all the crap filled products in your makeup bag/ bathroom draw/ handbag in the rubbish bin and start fresh with chemical free products, but not many of us live in that world. So, our suggestion is that as you finished your old products replace them with new non toxic, natural products and slowly convert.


If you are unsure or just want some clarification- shoot us an email, we are always more than happy to help. Same goes if you have a product you just love and we don’t stock it, let us know, chances are others will love it too!

Enjoy xo

Keep it Simple - SW Basics Cream - 5 ways

Posted on June 02, 2015 | Posted under Cleanse Skincare, natural + organic skincare boutique, Natural Skincare, Organic, Organic Skincare, S.W Basics | Leave a Comment

It’s an awesome face and body moisturizer, but our bestselling S.W Basics Cream actually lends itself to a variety of unconventional uses. Below, is a break down by S.W Basics giving you 5 surprising ways to use their 3-ingredient, USDA-Certified Organic S.W. staple.

A Hair Mask

Got dry, brittle locks? Us, too! To remedy it, we’ll take a big dollop of our Cream and apply it thoroughly all over our hair, focusing on our ends. It’s great as an overnight treatment or use it before you head into the sun.

A Sunburn Ointment 

The ultra-moisturizing blend of organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, and organic olive oil in our Cream is great for soothing sensitive, burned skin. Moreover, the antioxidants in both olive and coconut oil can help reduce the redness and damage from sun exposure. Apply liberally on your scorched areas. (Also, did you know shea butter has a natural SPF of 6?)

A Scalp Treatment 

We go to great lengths to ensure our faces and limbs stay hydrated, but what about our scalps? Given they can be exposed to the harshest of personal care products – such as sulfate-filled shampoos – scalps actually need some major TLC. Take the Cream and rub it gently onto your scalp (as though you’re using shampoo), or spot-apply it where needed.

A Bug Bite Healer 

So, you’ve gotten attacked by bugs…and are insanely itchy. The shea butter in our Cream will serve dual purposes here: 

  1. It will assist in reducing inflammation. 
  2. It will help prevent any scarring from your scratch-happy tendencies. 

A Beard Treatment

A scratchy beard’s not-so-great underbelly? Dehydrated, irritated skin. Give your beard (or your man’s beard) a good rub down with our Cream to treat both the hair and the inflamed follicles.

Ditch + Switch - Great Natural Alteratives to Conventional Nasties

Posted on May 04, 2015 | Posted under Bestseller, Cleanse, Cleanse Skincare, Ditch and Switch, Everything Balm, Ingredients to Avoid, natural + organic skincare boutique, Natural Skincare, nontoxic, Organic, Organic Skincare, Zoe Organics | Leave a Comment

Do you want to make the switch over to natural and nontoxic products for you and your family? Are you struggling to know where to start? Or what’s good and what’s bad?

You don’t need to throw everything out all at once, it can be a gradual process as things run out. But just make sure you are making a well informed choice for the next products you purchase.

We are going to start posting regularly with what you can swap in and out of your skincare regime to help take the guess work out of it.

Here's the first one:

Pawpaw ointments SWITCH TO Zoe Organics Everything Balm

 

Fermented pawpaw is good for you right? Yes, however sadly the most popular pawpaw ointment on the market contains a mere 4% pawpaw. That means the remaining amount is made up of mainly petroleum jelly, but also castor oil and canola oil. They claim it is a ‘safe’ petroleum. Safe petroleum? Sounds like an oxy-moron to me!

The Perfect Bright (nontoxic) Lipstick

Posted on March 23, 2015 | Posted under Bright lips, Cleanse, Cleanse Skincare, Ere Perez, Lipstick, Make up, Natural Make up, Natural Skincare, nontoxic, Organic, Organic Skincare, Studio 78 Paris | Leave a Comment

 

So, I told you I would let you know when I found a fabulous bright pink lipstick, to replace my favourite but nasty, full of chemicals bright pink lippy. And I have!!!

In fact I have found 2!!

But before I announce my exciting news, have you ever stopped to think about what is actually in your lipstick?

Every day we apply our lippy and then reapply and reapply again. Think about how many times per day you put lipstick on your lips. Now, think about where that lipstick goes, mostly it wears off as we eat and drink.

Studies show that an average woman consumes 2-4 kgs of lipstick over their life time.

Rejuvenate Your Skin with Natural Oils

The thought of putting oil on my skin used to totally freak me out. What if I break out with a face full of pimples!!!! Isn’t the idea to reduce the oil on my face not to add more?????

For most of us, our first introduction to oil was negative. Growing up we were told to dry out our skin and reduce the amount of oil our skin produced. “Oil  free” and “reduces oil” were very common terms thrown about in the skincare industry.

Since then research and knowledge about skincare has come a long way and we have learnt to value the benefits that using oils can have on your skin.

We now know that oils have quite the opposite effect and don’t cause breakouts. If we over cleanse and scrub our skin to dry it out and reduced oil build up, it actually has the opposite effect and the skin produces excess sebum to make up for the moisture loss If we use the correct oils to nourish and hydrate our skin our bodies produce less oil and this creates balanced healthy happy skin. So in actual fact your skin needs oil.

At Cleanse Skincare we are always getting questions around our oils so we decided to put the following chart together to help you select the most appropriate oil for you;

 

5 Ways to Avoid Dry Skin and Prevent Ageing Skin in WINTER

Posted on August 11, 2014 | Posted under Anti-ageing, Bestseller, cleanse skincare, Dry Shampoo, Haircare, Kosmea, max green alchemy, Natural, natural + organic skincare boutique, S.W Basics, Skin Care, Skin Routine, Skin type, skincando, skincare products, Winter | Leave a Comment

 

In winter our skin gets dry and it’s harder to keep it hydrated and looking healthy. The lack of moisture in the air combined with the heaters and fires indoors and the harsher external elements that your skin is the buffer to causes dry, flaky, irritated skin that can be prone to blemishes and breakouts and also leads to premature skin ageing.

By changing your skin routine over the colder months you will ensure you maintain healthy, glowing skin and combat premature ageing of your skin. 

Here are 5 ways to avoid dry skin and prevent skin ageing in WINTER;

1. Get familiar with using oils on your skin

 Winter is a great time to use oils on your skin as both indoor and outdoor conditions can often leave your skin dry and irritated. For first time oil users or those new to using oil, always remember your skin shouldn't feel “oily” after you have applied it. Oils should absorb into your skin within about 30 seconds, if it doesn't, you are probably using too much.

Why go natural......

Posted on June 06, 2013 | Posted under 100% pure, cleanse skincare, Ingredients to Avoid, natural + organic skincare boutique, why go natural | 1 Comment

 

Here are just a few reasons why you should change all those products full of nasties over to natural products.

The fewer chemicals and toxins in your daily regime the better right!! 

Enjoy
