Winter is over!March is said to be one of the hardest months for us humans - at least, for us in the Northern European climate of Copenhagen. The days are getting longer and we see a little bit more of the sun, so we’re optimistic and hopeful for summer, but not quite there yet - it’s still cold and a little unwelcoming.
After long winter our bodies are tired. During the colder months, we tend to just curl up on the couch and avoid the elements. While this is super comfy, lack of movement can cause stagnation within the body and buildup of toxins.
Here comes the sun!At the end of the month, or more specifically, on 20th of March, it’s officially the first day of Spring! Spring is when we begin to venture back outdoors, without having to worry about freezing. It’s when we start rebuilding our gardens and planning any reconstructions around the house, which were not possible in winter. The same procedures lately became a custom for our skincare and pampering routines. Spring is all about cleanse and detox, inside and out, peeling of all the old layers of skin and preparing for long days in the sunshine.
With the Spring detox in mind, we put together the combination ‘Cleanse and Refresh’ . The three products are 100% natural; they are Aviendo Natural Refining Eye Make-Up Remover , Aviendo Natural Comforting Face Cleanser and Aviendo Natural Aloe Vera Soothing Face Toner. They do not contain parabens or artificial perfumes so they won’t be a burden to your skin’s regeneration process.
The entire routine is very easy and can be repeated daily. It’s main purpose is first to thoroughly cleanse your skin by removing dirt and/or make-up, so it is able to breath, take in nutrients and get rid of build up toxins.
De-Tox in 3 Easy Steps:
1. Apply Refining Make-Up Remover to a cotton pad and remove your make-up with gentle circular motions.
2. Rinse your face with warm water and apply one pump of the Comforting Face Cleanser. This natural herb-based face cleanser is a very effective companion for anyone with sensitive skin. It removes any remaining make-up and keeps your skin’s pH balanced. Massage the cleanser around your face and neck area until a foam is formed and rinse thoroughly afterwards.
3. After cleansing your face, pat it dry with a towel. Apply a few squirts of the toner to your face and neck, and circulate gently with your (clean) fingertips. You don’t need much! The toner cools the skin so your pores close and prevents dirt from re-entering. It also reduces the appearance of pores. It is lightweight and easily absorbed by the skin. Remember to do this step within 3 minutes after cleansing your face in order to lock in moisture and prevent drying of the skin. After these three steps apply your favourite moisturiser, preferably one without parabens and perfumes. Sit back and allow your skin regenerate and detox.
