Shout your skin a drink.

Last week, we offered 18 hints and tips on how to restore your skin back to health. (Does winter have you feeling dry, flaky and a bit irritated.)

Today, we’re zeroing in on one BIG tip that could change the game for you. And, Oh My Omega—it’s an oldie but a goodie!

As a general rule, our skin loves to ‘eat’ what our body loves to eat. In the Winter months our bodies crave nourishing warming foods like roast root vegetables, delicious soups and many glasses of pinot noir (ahem, I mean herbal tea). And when Spring warms us up on the outside, our insides switch to cool-down mode and we salivate over fruits, salads and all things fresh, green and crunchy.

Regardless of the season, for our body to function optimally, we must ingest essential fatty acids (EFAs) and two of them are vital: Omega 3 (alpha-linoleic acid), and Omega 6 (linoleic acid). The body cannot naturally synthesise or produce EFAs, which means they must be sourced from our diet and topically.

EFAs are ‘essential’ because they are the building blocks to make other ‘special fats’ necessary for bodily functions like hormonal production and brain development. In fact, EFAs assist membrane formation that surround and protect every cell in your body. They also maintain the ‘water barrier’ in the upper layer of the skin, which prevents moisture from evaporating. So, lacking in EFAs will majorly affect your skin health and how it looks…ergo, we LOVE them!

But this is next level important in winter.

Given the cold makes our skin “parched as bro”, we should help it out with a daily drink of our Restore Serum.

We’ve formulated this serum using only the best organic oils and active ingredients that have the proven ability to restore, soothe, and heal your skin, with the list of heroes below. But while you might have a penchant for making your glass of wine really count and maybe push the boundaries of its brim: less is definitely more with serum oils. You might even like to prep the skin by opening it up with a shower or bath first, so the oil will go the distance and be absorbed nicely. Again, as last week’s newsletter explained, don’t make the water too hot or it will end up dehydrating your skin.

  • Certified Organic Rosehip Oil (Omega 3): Extra nourishing, used for skin pigmentation and scarring, useful on psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, anti-inflammatory, healing and regenerating properties, anti-ageing.
  • Pomegranate Oil (Omega 5): Really high in antioxidants, works in synergy with Seabuckthorn oil for amazing results, improves elasticity, reduces wrinkles and prevents ageing, calming and healing—gentle enough to use on rosacea and eczema skins, anti-ageing.
  • Seabuckthorn Oil (Omega 3, 6): Vitamins A, C, E & K, More Vitamin C in weight than oranges, potent antioxidant, used to treat burns and wounds topically, great for acne and rosacea, 120 compounds and minerals, used for scarring and radiation burns, considered a “natural healer”.
  • Kukui Nut Oil (Omega 3, 6, 9): High in essential fatty acids, small molecular structure so it penetrates easily, high linoleic acids, soothing and softening, especially beneficial for very dry skin but light enough to use on oily skins.

It’s also worth touting that Pomegranate oil and Seabuckthorn oil are an absolute power couple. When blended, they work in synergy to give your skin more antioxidants than a whole orchard of oranges (it 100% knocks it way out of the ballpark…or orchard in this instance).

These are just some of the reasons our clients refer to Restore Serum as ‘Liquid Gold’.

Drink up!

Much Love
