We’re are all experiencing how this epidemic is changing our habits. Let’s look together at how, now more than ever, we can keep a good skin hygiene. After all our skin is the biggest organ and absorbs most of what goes on it.
You’ll be surprised to see how easily dirt and germs are passed onto us; from speaking on a mobile phone, to touching a surface and then scratching your face! It all builds up onto the skin.
To ensure healthy, happy skin and minimise the spread of germs and possible bacterial infections we need to maintain a good skin hygiene.
‘Only Nature respects the Nature of your skin’ - says Dr Spiezia
Skin needs moisture and lipids to create a protective barrier and the simplest way to achieve this is through good hygiene. In these days of emergency and worry the overuse of soaps and fragrances can lead to a build-up of toxicity and may even destroy the good bacteria on our skin - exactly the opposite of what we want to do.
Being kind to our skin choosing organic, gentle, waterless skin products is key as they respect its natural composition.
With the recent surge in using alcohol based sanitisers and washing hands much more often, our skin will no doubt suffer and easily get dry or inflamed.
We will all have experienced in our life that hands, face and hair are the first parts of our body to visibly react to sudden emotions and lifestyle changes.
Remember to only apply a balm/cream/moisturiser to clean skin to absorb the nutrients well so, use your cleanser morning and evening and definitely before applying any moisturiser. If possible, use a cosmetic spatula rather than your finger to get the product out of a jar.
