With so many products to try and tips to follow, it's easy to get confused when it comes to what's good for your skin. So forget the trends, the latest "hot" product and who's using what - because SATIVE BEAUTY has the three primary rules to follow for your best skin yet...
Have you ever spent thousands of rands buying skincare products that did nothing for your skin? I am sure a lot of us can relate to this question. I will share one of my stories from my skincare diary.
After trying out a few dozen skincare products but to no avail, in an attempt to lighten up the appearance of my stretch marks after giving birth, I started to formulate my own creams. My concoctions included a mix of methylated spirit, some lotion, paraffin and tissue oil. Needless to say that, this was very harmful to my skin. I started looking for a safer solution I could use that will be kind to my skin. And would not leave me smelling like a bottle of spirit and at risk of burning alive if I happen to pass by an open flame🤣😂.
And that is how Sative Beauty started. I was tired of exposing my skin to quick fixes. Our skincare range is 96% organic, cruelty-free and handmade. We carefully use the safest natural ingredients in all our skincare products. Our goal is to assist you in achieving healthy, glowing and nourished skin, not perfect skin. Perfect skin does not exist.
Here are the three basic rules you need to follow for your best skin yet...
Rule 1: Be consistent
When it comes to skincare, real change takes time.
You have to be fully committed to a long and faithful relationship with the skincare products you use. I am guilty of this; I used to play around with different products every other week, searching for the ''one''. But trying something new every week is not the secret to great skin. Consistency is key. Once you find something that works for your skin - stick with it for a minimum of 4 weeks (8 weeks if you are also treating pigmentation). While a great face mask, peel or hydrating serum can quickly plump up, matte down or brighten your skin, any lasting change takes at least a month to see. Any lasting change takes time to yield long term results.
Rule 2: Use what is right for you.
There are so many products to choose from. Every day there is a new cult favourite that everyone would be raving about. Avoid the noise and only use products that are right for your skin. For the most part, the issue is not the wrong product but the wrong texture for your skin. The best thing you can do for yourself is to know your skin type. Oily skin is prone to blocked pores when a rich formulation is used instead of a light, gel texture. The wrong formulation can throw your skin off balance.
Rule 3: More is not more.
You know the phrase "too much of a good thing?" because skin really can have too much of a good thing. Using more products that do the same job will not get you better and faster results. But, in reality, you can do more harm than good.
Those are the only three skincare rules you need to know.
