Anti-Aging Secret – Natural Hand Cream
We would love to share with you one of our best anti-aging secrets – natural hand cream. The skin on our hands is so often overlooked in favour of the facial skin. Yet our hands are in constant use, and are therefore exposed to the environment more so than your face. The skin on the back of our hands is much thinner, and can be quicker to show the signs of age-related damage - including uneven skin tone, dryness, wrinkles and pigmentation spots. This is where a natural hand cream comes in.
It is essential to take good care of your hands! Our Savar Advanced Hand Repair is an anti-aging natural hand cream like no other – it feeds nails, making a fabulous cuticle cream and also works wonders on dry and cracked heels. Deeply hydrating, it is non-greasy and quickly absorbed. Better yet, this natural hand cream contains a wide range of premium botanical extracts and oils to help soothe the skin and protect it against damage.
New Zealand avocado oil, organic violet, and lime flower are among a few of the premium natural ingredients that not only make this natural hand cream a balm for dry and sensitive skins, it also helps to soothe conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Using our Savar natural anti aging hand cream a few times each day will make a big difference to your hands and you will thank yourself in the long-run!

Importance of Men's Natural Skincare
Much of the marketing for natural skincare is aimed at women, meaning men may feel that it is not necessary nor ‘manly’ to have a well-placed skincare routine with natural skincare. However this is not the case!
Men and women both have skin that needs to be nourished and looked after. Gender stereotypes are being struck down in all areas of society, and therefore any male should not think twice about investing in natural skincare and putting the effort in to ensure his skin is well nourished and healthy.
Male skincare requirements are largely no different to women – all skin must be keep clean and well moisturised. In fact, because most men shave regularly, they are at a higher risk of irritating their facial skin, making it all the more important they look after it with natural skincare. Well moisturised skin is more capable of healing quicker, so if one is prone to shaving rash, regularly moisturising the skin with natural skincare will help it recover faster from shaving abrasion.
Keeping skin plumped and moisturised with natural skincare delays the ageing process. This is because as we age, our skin becomes less able to keep itself moisturised. As you can see, there are so many reasons men should not shy away from respecting their skin and nourishing it with natural skincare.

Plant Based Hand Lotions – Why We Are Obsessed!
Plant Based Hand Lotions are such an underrated but important product! It is so easy to become caught up in wanting the latest serum or moisturiser for your facial skin. However, we need to remember that it is just as important to care for the skin on our hands. This is where a plant based hand lotion plays a crucial role.
Hands are constantly in use, being washed and very rarely protected. It is important to treat them with the care they deserve. Having a few fabulous plant based hand lotions dotted around the house is a great idea and can be a life saver for dry rough skin – they rehydrate and moisturise your hands.
When treating your hands to a new plant based hand lotion try and choose a hand lotion that is formulated to intensely nourish and soften. At Sávar we believe the best hand creams are those enriched with natural, plant based extracts and oils that are rich and uber-nourishing.
If the skin on your hands is particularly dry, we suggest treating yourself to a hand treatment before bed at night by applying a thick layer of your best hand lotion on and then cover with cotton gloves. Leave this hand treatment on overnight! Your hands should feel wonderfully nourished and hydrated.
Your hands will thank you for it!

Essential Natural Skincare products
With the range of natural skincare available, it can seem like you need a vast array of natural skincare to achieve glowing and healthy skin. However, this is not the case! Prepped with the essential natural skincare products, alongside a consistent natural skincare routine, you can achieve perfectly healthy skin without hundreds of dollar’s worth of product.
At Savar, the skincare products that we cannot do without are:
A natural cleanser removes makeup and grime when used at night, and in the morning, cleans out impurities. For dry skin, opt for a natural cream cleanser as it will be gentler on your skin. If you have normal or oily skin a foaming natural cleanser or wash is recommended.
Ideally used a couple of times a week, a natural exfoliant is crucial to get rid of build up of dead skin cells. Using an exfoliant speeds cell production by clearing away the old skin cells and unclogging pores. Ensure you use a natural exfoliant that is gentle on the skin.
This goes without saying, but a natural moisturiser is often regarded as the key to a great skincare routine. Your skin is exposed to the environment daily – whether that of artificial lighting and air-conditioning of an office, or potentially damaging UV rays outside. Thus it is essential to ensure it remains well moisturised and hydrated. Ensure you use a natural moisturiser suited to your skin type, and a lighter natural moisturiser during the day.
A natural eye cream adds moisture, addresses fine lines and wrinkles and helps with the appearance of puffy, dark circles under the eyes. Skin around the eyes is finer with less oil glands, meaning an eye cream is a vital part to nourishing your skin.
If you stick with these essential natural skincare products, you can’t go wrong! We hope you notice the difference.

Savar Skincare Tips - The Benefits of a Natural Toner
We love natural toners at Savar, as they provide so many benefits for your skin, yet are so underrated. They are very beneficial for those with oily or acne-prone skin, or people who wear facial make up or heavier face products such as sunscreen.
Applying your natural toner to a cotton wool pad and gently wiping your facial skin after cleansing will remove any excess make up or oil left on your skin. A good natural skincare toner will also help close pores and quickly rebalance your skin at the same time.
A natural toner can also help bind moisture to your skin as well as refresh and revitalise your skin and is ideal to set make up and relieve dryness from air-conditioning at work or while travelling.
Toners really are a multi functional moisture boost that reduces shine and brightens your skin leaving it feeling radiant and refreshed.

A plant based hand repair is the secret to ensuring your hands remain nourished and hydrated throughout the day. There’s no avoiding the fact that our hands benefit from regular maintenance. Visiting a professional for regular maintenance is such a treat, however many of us either cannot afford the time or cost! Here are some suggestions of things you can do at home with a plant based hand repair to look after your hands and nails:
Investing in the best plant based hand repair you can find and using it regularly will go a long way to keeping your hands looking great. As a general rule try using the best plant based hand cream for your skin type at least twice a day.
For an extra moisture boost and intensive hand treatment, try investing in cotton gloves. You can then apply a thick layer of your best plant based hand cream and then put on the gloves to lock-in the moisture. Ideally leave them on for an hour, or if you can, overnight.
To stop your cuticles looking dry and flaky, regularly massage your natural hand cream into them.
We recommend using a natural, plant based hand cream like our Savar Advanced Hand Repair that is formulated with New Zealand avocado oil. Avocado oil is well known for its wonderful ability to retain moisture making it excellent for dry, parched and dehydrated skin. It is an oil that is uber- nourishing and brilliant at conditioning skin.
We hope you enjoy, your hands and nails certainly will!

Natural New Zealand skincare is no longer a necessity developed and marketed at only women, but there are now many natural skincare brands that have created lines specifically for men. However, male skincare requirements are no different to women; all skin needs to be kept clean and well moisturised, so in case the man in your life is having doubts, here are two reasons why men should definitely start using a natural moisturiser:
1) Keeping skin plumped and moisturised delays the ageing process. As we age, our skin becomes less able to keep itself moisturised, so a natural moisturiser will do wonders to keep his skin soft and subtle.
2) Well moisturised skin is more capable of healing quicker, so if prone to shaving rash, regularly moisturising skin will help it recover more quickly from the abrasion of shaving.
Natural skincare is not solely for women – men’s skin is subject to the same environment, UV rays and daily build up as women’s skin is. At Savar, our products are designed to be unisex. So feel free to share your Savar products with the man in your life!

Best Natural Skincare Products For Your 20’s
Finding the best natural skincare products is essential at any age, yet difference ages need different things. Most people in their 20’s will have the benefit of youth on their side, so they won’t be showing too many signs of ageing and are likely to still be producing plenty of collagen to ensure skin regularly and competently renews itself. Therefore, here are some suggestions for the best natural skincare products if you’re in your 20’s:
Younger skin is more likely to produce excessive oil. Therefore, using a natural facial wash, rather than cream cleanser, is a better way to remove all dirt, grime and oil. Toning is a great way to remove any excess make up or grime that your natural face wash has not removed, so invest in a good quality, natural face wash and natural toning spritz to keep skin hydrated and oil-free.
Whilst ageing won’t yet be a huge concern if you’re in your 20’s, it’s still a good idea to take preventative measures by find a natural skincare moisturiser that’s suitable for your skin type. This should include a natural day cream, and a natural night cream that have been formulated to work with your skin type.
