There are 2 ways you can go about making these delicious ice cashew milk ice creams. You can simply blend your Radiance Cleanse cashew milk with raspberries, pour into a mould and freeze or follow the below recipe:

  • 600ml water
  • 2 dates
  • 1g Himalayan salt
  • 1tsp natural vanilla essence
  • 4tbsp raspberries (fresh or frozen)

How to:

Place the cashews and dates in a bowl, cover with water and leave to soak for a minimum of 4 hours (or overnight) to soften. Drain, add 600ml of fresh water and the salt and blend until smooth.

Strain/sieve to remove pulp and blend with all the other ingredients. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes, mix, and then pour into moulds to freeze.

Freeze the mixture for a minimum of four hours, preferably overnight

Hope is in the air! With summer set to ascend upon us and life is accelerating again, things are about to have a big shakeup! Summer has had a slow start this year, with what has felt like weeks of rain and gloom. As if obeying the laws of pathetic fallacy the weather is also predicted to improve shortly. It seems only fitting to bring back our ever-popular Summer Cleanse in time to mark the change of the season.
 
Light, refreshing and above all delicious, it’s exactly what we need when temperatures soar. We look forward to it all year, so join us and make sure your health and immunity are at peak strength. 

This programme features light and refreshing recipes, but is kept substantial by the inclusion of one of our signature nut milks. Your day will start with an all time Radiance favourite - Young Love; this summer lemonade alternative features the very best organic, virgin coconut water money can buy, alongside refreshing raspberry, lime and mint. Our zesty Simnel Milk when drunk ice cold on a hot day can truly only be described as nourishing liquid ice cream.
 
The other juices included in this programme give an excellent variety of ingredients and nutrients, making the most of what the season has to offer. This cleanse really is a delight to complete, and is suitable for all cleansers.
 
Available in 1, 3 and 5 Day Programmes - the Summer Cleanse is available to book now.

Rewilding Your Skin

by Olivia Cartwright, , link

In today’s world, we are typically encouraged to try to strip as much from our skin as we can, aggressive cleansers, peels, chemical exfoliants, physical exfoliants, microdermabrasion. Our Natural Beauty Cleanse is a comprehensive approach to combat that and ‘Rewild’ your skin. In doing this we are aiming to restore your skin’s natural processes and rebuild your microbiome, feeding your ecosystem. This unconventional approach is the perfect tonic to treat our oversensitised skin and repair your skin’s barrier.

As with all ecosystems, the health of our skin’s ecology is a delicate balance and can be threatened by some aspects of our modern lifestyle. We underestimate how integral our skin's natural barrier is to the health and appearance of our skin. First and foremost, it is the only layer of the skin that we can actually see and is responsible for keeping the good things in and the bad things out. As your first defense, it is your protection against the elements, pollution and UV rays and so when the strength of that surface is impaired and the health of the skin is compromised. Sensitivity and inflammation is really a good indicator of any damage, as is persistent dryness and flaking.

If you view your skin similarly to how you imagine your gut, there is an ecosystem of good bacteria and organisms protecting this skin barrier. This ecosystem must be nourished and protected for your skin to thrive, when in reality, we are doing quite the opposite. The abrasive products we reach for daily is killing this ecosystem in the effort to be ‘squeaky clean’.

Rewilding is the best approach to combat this. It does exactly what it says on the tin, returning your skin to its ‘wild’ state. Come back to the condition in which it thrives and feed that microbiome with everything it needs to return it to full health. The products you receive in your Natural Beauty Cleanse by Esse Skincare are the perfect starter kit. These products are not strong in conventional terms but when your skin has been stripped of all its defenses they are incredibly powerful. The Resurrect Serum has Biome+ level 2 and 3 probiotics and prebiotics to support a balanced skin microbiome. They send a signal to skin cells to improve barrier function and reduce water loss. The Sensitive Cleanse also contains probiotics using a probiotic extract of Lactobacillus to clean your skin without stripping it.

Natural Beauty Cleanse is really the perfect act of self-care. You take 3 - 5 days out of your typical diet to feed your skin with these skin focussed raw, unpasteurised juices and topical products that are restoring your skin's microbiome. Click here to book yours today.
