Rosehip Ultra Brightening Serum

Rosehip Ultra Brightening Serum

Rosehip Ultra Brightening Serum

 

We are often asked what makes our natural Rosehip Ultra Brightening Serum different. Apart from being fast absorbing and heavenly scented, our natural Rosehip Ultra Brightening Serum is oil free and formulated specially to tighten, hydrate, brighten and penetrate deep within the skin’s layers.

 

Very few skincare products are oil free and being oil free makes it suitable for all skin types including oily skin and great to use as a base under your moisturiser and foundation to give skin an extra boost.

 

Also, our Rosehip Ultra Brightening Serum is formulated with premium rosehip, melon fruit, together with New Zealand blackcurrant, kiwifruit, goji berry and bearberry. These powerhouse superfoods are exceptionally rich in antioxidants and vitamins C and E to target fine lines and address uneven skin tones. What makes this beautiful serum so special is that it also calms and soothes skin which makes it great to use on inflammed skin, itchy bites and pimples. It will work hard at calming and soothing skin almost immediately.

 

We suggest to use twice daily under your moisturizer and leave to absorb for one minute. This super charged natural skin boost is also fabulous for sensitive skin, perfect to use alone for oily skin types and is guaranteed to leave your skin feeling wonderfully hydrated, smooth, bright  and healthy.

Savar natural Skincare Tips - Never Sleep With Your Make Up On

Savar natural Skincare Tips - Never Sleep With Your Make Up On

Savar Natural Skincare tips - Never sleep with your make up on

 

There are so many natural skincare faux pas that everyone is guilty of making, such as not exfoliating regularly enough, not moisturising as regularly as you should but it’s safe to say that the universally largest is leaving make-up on before you go to bed. 

 

Your body and skin uses the sleeping hours doing everything it can to repair any damage – however minor – the previous day may have created. This includes things like flushing out toxins from your skin and regenerating any loss of collagen. Both of these examples are pretty essential to maintaining healthy skin, yet by leaving your make-up on before you go to bed, you’re making it almost impossible for your body to do a good job at repairing any facial skin damage as your make-up works like a mask that stops anything getting in (like oxygen) and anything getting out (like toxins).

 

Wearing make-up to bed clogs your pores leaving you with, at the very least dull facial skin, and at the very worst inflamed spots and blackheads. Then the vicious circle continues as whilst your body should be concentrating on keeping your skin healthy, instead it then has to focus on dealing with the newly inflamed or clogged pores. 

 

We all have days where we’re so incredibly tired that we can’t possibly consider doing anything more than flopping into bed, however if you want healthy skin make sure you allow at least a couple of minutes before bed for your natural skincare regime of cleanse, tone and moisturise. Your skin will love you for it!

The Best Hand Cream

The Best Hand Cream

The Best Hand Cream

 

There’s no avoiding the fact that our hands benefit from regular maintenance. Visiting a professional for regular maintenance is such a treat, however if like us there is not always the time here are some suggestions on things you can do at home to space out your visits to the salon:

 

At Savar we believe having soft hydrated hands can make a massive difference to their overall look, so investing in the best hand cream 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 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 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 hand cream into them.

 

There are many good hand creams available on the market, however we recommend using a natural hand cream like our Savar Advanced Hand Repair that is formulated with New Zealand  avocado oil. When it comes to formulating the best hand cream and lotions the benefits of avocado oil are countless. 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.

 

Lastly, if you can become a pro at doing your own nails then great, but if you can, it’s worth visiting a professional every few months to tidy up cuticles and keep your hands looking great. Failing that, get a friend involved and have an evening of pampering but most of all remember to moisturise your hands at least twice a day with the best hand cream you can find!

Natural Skincare Products Include Face Washes For Men

 

Men’s natural skincare products have come a long way in these past few years. More and more men are getting into natural skincare products and are realising the huge benefits in using good quality natural  products as opposed to a withered up bar of soap!

 

A great skincare routine with natural skincare products can and should be fuss free. It should be quick and simple and using the correct products will keep your skin healthy and slow down the signs of aging.

 

Naturally keeping your skin well hydrated with the right natural moisturiser is important however what you wash your face with is also just as important.

 

It is best to wash your face before you shave as daily grime and oils can make it harder for your razor to travel smoothly over your skin and can affect the quality of your shave.

 

We suggest using a natural soap free face wash, as it will clean and refresh your face without drying it out. Our Savar natural Luxury Face Wash is a very safe and gentle unisex, cleansing gel that is soap free and enriched with the goodness of New Zealand manuka honey - one of nature's true wonders. Manuka honey is a natural antimicrobial that is powerfully soothing, moisturising, protecting and promotes healthy skin. Along with organic cucumber and lemon fruit which are  cooling,  toning, cleansing and brightening. Our natural face wash will not only leave your skin refreshed, clean and hydrated, it is also biodegradable which means it's good for the planet as well.

Normal Dry Skin Types

Normal Dry Skin Types

Normal dry skin types

 

Winter can be stressful to the skin. Cold and wind can dry out normal dry skin, leaving it feeling uncomfortable and looking lifeless. The solution to getting it back on track is to use a natural moisturiser that is specially customised for normal dry skin types.

 

Topping up your skins moisture levels by using a good natural moisturiser keeps it looking youthful, plump and clear. From a very young age skin starts losing its ability to provide its own moisture, so making sure you give normal dry skin types a helping hand with your favourite natural moisturiser is essential, not only for the battle against early signs of ageing, but also to keep skin looking bright and healthy.

 

Some of us don’t have the time to sit around for anything up to an hour applying various treatments and products to give our skin a facial, although it’s worth trying to find this time occasionally as it’s a great treatment for both your skin and your soul! However if you have normal dry skin it definitely does benefit from being pampered regularly to ensure it looks its best, so if you can spare two minutes, try this:

 

  1. Remove all make-up with a natural skincare cleanser.
  2. Follow with a wash with a wash-off natural facial cleanser.
  3. Whilst your working your wash-off cleanser over your face, let your flannel or muslin cloth sit under the warm tap.
  4. Once you’re ready to remove your wash-off cleanser, lay the flannel over your face for 10 seconds. 
  5. Thoroughly wash off  the rest of your wash-off cleanser however, use the flannel to buff skin in circular motions whilst you’re doing so; this approach is a very gentle way to lightly exfoliate normal dry skin.
  6. Once all the steps above are complete, apply a thick layer of your usual night moisturising cream all over your face. Work it in for 30 seconds.

 

Try to perform this mini-facial a good half an hour before bed, so that when you reach the point of applying the thick layer of your natural moisturiser, it’s had plenty of time to soak in before you hit the pillow.

 

These simple steps are a great way to treat normal dry skin. The great part about the last step is that you don’t need to wash off the night cream, so your skin is getting a treat even when you’ve finished your facial!

A Natural Night Cream - Why we Love Them

A Natural Night Cream - Why we Love Them

Natural Night Cream - Why We Love Them

 

Moisturising with a natural skincare moisturiser is one of the most important things you can do for your skin. Regardless of your skin type, skin needs all the help it can get when replacing lost moisture and there is no better time for this to occur than during sleep. 

 

A good cleansing routine will only go so far without the finishing touches of a natural night cream, so here are three things that a great night cream can do for you:

 

Arguably the most important benefit of using a natural night cream is the fact that it will help fight the signs of ageing. By replacing lost moisture, skin is better equipped to fight free-radicals and repair damage caused by daily factors such as pollution and sun exposure.

 

Waking up with well-moisturised skin ensures you look healthier. It’s an obvious one, but skin that has adequate moisture levels is less likely to look ashen and more inclined to glow.

 

Keeping skin moisturised, quite literally keeps it happy, meaning that you’ll be less prone to typical skin complaints such as dryness, dehydration and breakouts. 

 

There is no such thing as a skin type that won’t benefit from a nightly slathering of a good quality natural night cream, so make sure you find one that works for your skin type and use it religiously!

The Natural Benefits of New Zealand Blackcurrant Seed Oil

The Natural Benefits of New Zealand Blackcurrant Seed Oil

The Natural Benefits of New Zealand Blackcurrant Seed Oil

 

At Savar natural skin care, we absolutely love black currant seed oil and New Zealand is known for growing some of the best blackcurrants in the world, which is why we feature it in many of our natural products. Some of the products include our natural natural Wonder Lift Serum, natural Antioxidant Night Cream and natural Gentle Hydrating Antioxidant Moisture Mask.

 

Blackcurrants contain more antioxidants than 24 other fruits which makes it a great natural moisturiser and an anti-inflammatory that helps soothe skin conditions such as sensitive skin, dry skin and eczema.

 

It is also super rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids which our skin relies on to remain firm, nourished and protected.

 

Commonly referred to as an “anti-ageing superstar”,  blackcurrant seed oil is an amazing example of nature’s finest ingredients in natural skincare that is also great for healing scars and soothing sensitivity. Considering how much of a multi-tasking ingredient it is, hopefully now you can see why we’re such a fan.

From The Heart - What is Natural Beauty?

 

Did you know that only around 4% of women in the world consider themselves beautiful?

 

There are so many definitions of what it means to be truly beautiful - Whilst having a great natural skincare routine and a healthy diet is very important, and certainly helps, we think to be a true natural beauty you also need a lovely heart, self confidence, inner strength, happiness, great attitude, manners and self esteem.

 

Everybody has the ability to be a true natural beauty and we all need to recognise that.

 

We’re starting a Savar beauty club for all those who recognise real beauty is about so much more.

 

It’s free to join – just like our Instagram page (savarskincare) and you are a member. In return each week we will continue to publish self help tips and great quotes to inspire you and make you smile.

 

We will leave you with this food for thought and wonderful advice from Steve Job's:

The Benefits of a Natural Skincare Toner

The Benefits of a Natural Skincare Toner

 

Here at Savar, we love natural skincare toners. They provide many benefits for your skin. They are very beneficial for those with oily or acne-prone skin, for people with dry skin, or people who wear facial make up or heavier face products such as sunscreen.

 

Applying a natural skincare 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 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.

Natural skincare product tips for the end of the day

Natural skincare product tips - A two minute facial

 

Some of us don’t have the time to sit around for anything up to an hour applying various natural skincare product and treatments to give our skin a facial, although it’s worth trying to find this time occasionally as at Savar we believe it’s a great treatment for both your facial skin and your soul! However, skin needs to be pampered regularly to ensure it looks its best, so if you can spare two minutes at the end of the day, try this:

 

  1. Remove all make-up with a natural skincare product - it can be a wash off  or cream cleanser.
  2. Whilst your working your cleanser over your face, let your flannel or muslin cloth sit under a warm tap.
  3. Once you’re ready to remove your cleanser, lay the flannel over your face for 10 seconds. 
  4. Thoroughly wash off the rest of your natural skincare product, however, use the flannel to buff skin in circular motions whilst you’re doing so; this approach will gently exfoliate skin.
  5. Once all the steps above are complete, apply a thick layer of your usual Savar natural night cream all over your face and massage in for a few minutes. Follow with a natural facial mask 3 to 4 times a week.

 

Try to perform this mini-facial a good half an hour before bed, so that when you reach the point of applying the thick layer of your Savar natural moisturiser, it’s had plenty of time to soak in before you hit the pillow. Otherwise you might end up with a pillow covered in moisturiser which isn’t very nice!

 

These few simple steps are a great way to treat your facial skin to the main key elements of most facials: deep and double cleanse, steam, exfoliation and a moisture-boosting natural moisture mask with massage. The great part about the last step is that you don’t need to wash off the moisture mask, you can leave it on overnight so your skin is getting a treat even when you’ve finished your facial!
