It’s been over two weeks since I decided to switch my skincare regime to more natural & organic products, and honestly it’s going pretty well! Please excuse my late update regarding my natural transition - it’s been more difficult than expected to say goodbye to some of my products!
If you had to ask me before my switch to natural products what the natural brand that I couldn’t live without was, it would be Eminence. Their products are organic, natural, sustainable & cruelty-free plus have the added benefit of being free of parabens, phtalates, sodium lauryl sulfate & propylene glycol. While you might think “ugh sounds a little bit too intense for me“, I would encourage you to have a look at their products, especially their masks.

We are popping up at Lifespace Healing on Talbot Road this May 18th & 19th from 11am - 9pm for a unique 1:1 skin consultation to get your skin ready to glow this summer. This is the perfect time to update your regime and replace those old products that are running low.
As Summer is quickly approaching, and due to recent findings Ksenia has made regarding natural vs. synthetic skincare products, she had decided to make the switch to a 100% natural & organic skincare routine!
This is exactly how I felt about oils before taking our course in skin science. In fact, I was really convinced that oils might cause congestion on my skin, which is why I always preferred to stay away from them. Having a combination of dry and oily skin, I was worried that using oils could lead to breakouts!
I guess you could call me an oil sceptic. As I have sensitive and dry skin, I tend to avoid essential oils at all costs, which limits me when it comes to the fun and trendy treatment oils that look very pretty on the bathroom shelf.
We asked Isabella Stelle, the nutritionist behind Raw & Roasted, and cook of our first Supper Club at 26 Grains, a few questions about herself.
Ladies and gents yes, we are chiming in on the debate! To continue on our plant vibe, we wanted to explore a little more about plant oils, and try to find out if they are a friend or foe when it comes to the skin’s needs.
Not that long ago, Megan told me that there are house plants that can help skin conditions such as eczema! Interesting right? And in honour of International Earth Day, we thought what better time to explore a bit more about house plants and their impact on skin. Plants are more than just decorative, they can give your home and your skin a (literal) breath of fresh air!
It’s time to load-up on antioxidants to prepare our skin for the sun!
Did you know that between 1,000 and 6,000 tons of sunscreen are released in our oceans each year? Not only do the chemicals in sunscreen cause an imbalance in the ocean’s ecosystem, they are also a major factor in the deterioration of coral reefs.
A Thai massage is definitely one of our favourite spa treatments. It helps relieve muscle tension, ease stress, boost energy & makes you feel stretched like a yogi. However, this is not a relaxing treatment - be prepared to be stretched in different positions and feel the pressure on muscles that you did not think existed.
I have finally managed to find a routine that works for my skin, and although my job requires me to try products frequently, I do so very slowly and one at a time because new products (almost always) tend to trigger my rosacea. Check out this post to find out my essential rosacea products!
