During the cold weather the skin and the health suffer from harse cold wind, rain or snow and central heating which all take their toll on these areas of the body. 

During the warmer weather heat, sweating, UV rays and air conditioning also take their toll on skin and pores. 

Fact is our skin has different densities at different sites around the body. Eyes, nails, neck and hair are 10% drier than the rest of the body due to lack of sebaceous glands in these areas and therefore demand extra attention... but the rest of the face and body needs regular and caring treatment everyday, all through the year! 
As we age these needs are accentuated!

So what does it mean when people speak about about natural skin care products? 
Skin care products that are advertised "natural" may probably mean products that are free from chemical substance or may also be environmentally friendly, with plant and/or herbal additives or extracts in their ingredients. 

How do you choose natural skin care products? 
When purchasing hair care products please read the labels and make your own decisions on what level of "natural" ingredients you wish to accept in the skin care products that you use on your face and body. 
This is the most responsible way to select the best products for you.

We are all individuals and because of genetics, personal chemistry (ph and hormone levels) etc we may have a general need for certain ingredients but at different levels and this can change during the month in women (monthly cycle), during the again process and if on medication. This is why you may find yourself trying a few products whilst finding the right product for your particular skin.

Skin care therapists and dermatologists can advise you on a good skin care regime to assist with any conditions you may present at a session. It may be worth having a facial session to find out what you may be missing or even doing too much of, in your current regime to correct, treat and enhance skin.

Let's face it - excuse the pun - we all want to have the best skin possible on show! 

Our skin doesn't just hold our insides in... it is an organ and is our first defense against external environment - eliminating toxins, dead cells, balancing temperature, alerting us to health issues and much more!

Sun Protection
Sun damage does not always become apparent immediately.
Much of the damage is not apparent until years down the road. UVA rays breaks down Collagen & Elastin cells, which damage the structure of the skin. As the skin reproduces cells that are already there, if they are damaged in any way, those cells are reproduced and eventually produce symptoms like pigmentation, enlarged pores, sagging skin, wrinkling if you are lucky or in the worse-case scenario, melanoma!
UVB as many of us know is the burning rays. With the reduction of the ozone layer the rays and way more powerful than they use to be and the suggested SPF for the UK and such places need a minimum of SPF 30 every day and warmer climates SPF 50 especially for children.
Why do you need aftersun?
After sun is specifically produced to counteract immediate sun damage and assist in the production of melanin cells (the skins natural sun protection), but even dark skins need assistance, especially if not exposed to strong sun consistently. Melanin like muscles are more active when used regularly, so if you live in a country where this isn’t the case then your melanin production will be low and need assistance when the sun becomes stronger.
Sun protection Summary
Avoid strongest UV rays between 11am – 4pm.
Whilst tanning take frequent breaks from the sun and cover up
Frequent drinks of water or high  water content drinks
Protect your eyes with minimum of protection factor 400
Apply SPF 50 on all babies and toddlers
Apply Aftersun after sun exposure every day to assist in cell recovery and protection for the next exposure and rehydration of the cells

 Don’t Forget Your Hair and Eyes
Your hair and eyes need protection too. The sun can also damage the hair by obvious signs like drying and frizzing. Eyes can get UV damage too, but the skin around the eyes as many know, is very thin compared to the skin on the face and body, with hardly any fat cells, thus prone to drying out easily when there’s no sun exposure, so obviously this is multiplied during sun exposure. Add to to eye creams or gels with sun shades to prevent or not add to wrinkling and sagging around this area.
