Over the last few weeks we've been looking at the individual steps in our 3-step organic skincare ritual and this week it is time to focus on the final step of our routine, moisturising.
It might feel like we're teaching you to suck eggs but we're hoping to look at why it's important to moisturise and offer a few handy hints that might help you to maximise your moisturising so that your skin glows like a Goddess!
Our skin is our body's largest organ and just as we take the time to try and treat our internal organs well by drinking lots of water and eating a healthy diet, we also need to regularly spend time looking after our skin in order to keep it healthy.
Using an organic, superfood packed moisturiser can do wonders for our skin by improving our skin tone and preventing conditions such as dry skin, acne and premature ageing.
Moisturisers tend to hold water in the outer layers of our skin so they can also provide a temporary barrier and protection for our skin to environmental factors and other external irritants.
So what's the best way to apply moisturiser to maximise it's benefits?
The first thing to know is that it is important to apply it to skin that is slightly damp so after your toning stage, make sure that you only gently pat your skin dry rather than thoroughly drying it.
This is because damp skin is able to absorb more of the product than dry skin due to your pores being more open and receptive to moisture.
Although you can apply moisturiser everywhere, focus on the areas that need it most, typically your face. You will be aware of where you suffer from patches of dry or sore skin so be conscious of applying the product to those areas as well.
Once applied, use good massage techniques to help your skin soak up the moisturiser to the deepest levels possible. Massage firmly against gravity in anti-clockwise direction in order to get the best results.
Finally, if you want your skin to 'drink up' the moisturiser as quickly as possible use one last application of toner. This is easy to do with our useful spray bottles as you can simply give yourself a spritz to finish the moisturising process and go on your way, with silky smooth skin and feeling great!
Here at Rawgaia we are passionate about skincare and want to spread the word that looking after your skin is so important and not just about aesthetics, it's about keeping it healthy and nourished.
This last step of our organic skincare ritual is easy but essential in order to promote good skin health for our skin's largest organ.
So don't forget to moisturise your skin twice a day and before long, you will have glowing skin to reflect the Goddess that you are!
