Organic September

Organic September is something we endorse every year as it’s such a wonderful way to eat and live. Organic food is really getting back to basics in a way that is no longer the standard.  

With organic September now in full swing we are reevaluating the quality of the produce we put into our body. ⁠Organic food used to be the norm many years ago. Now it's considered a luxury. Yes organic food is more expensive than your average supermarket groceries but it is so worth it. ⁠

Organic foods do not contain any pesticides, fertilisers, solvents, or additives. This helps the overall biodiversity of plants and animals and makes it much better for the environment.⁠

One way we like to encourage organic fruit and vegetables into our diet without breaking the bank is with Oddbox. Oddbox is a really sustainable way to eat as they rescue odd & surplus fruit & veg directly from farms. Each box includes a letter which tells you which fruit and veg you're rescuing, where it's from and how to use it. ⁠

Use the code INSTA50 for 50% off your first box! ⁠

Radiance Cleanse has been soil association certified since our launch in 2009 and it is something we really believe in and endorse. Eating and drinking whole, organic, natural foods without chemicals or pesticides is a lifestyle choice we strive to make where we can. 

How to combat mask-ne

by Olivia Cartwright, , link

If your face is experiencing breakouts, you are probably experiencing maskne - skin upset and breakouts caused by continually wearing a face mask. The constant rubbing, breathe, and chafing that the mask puts on your skin leads to a condition where the skin’s barrier is harmed and becomes angry and sensitive and little spots start to arrive. This mixed with the heat from your breath makes a breeding ground for bacteria and dirt to grow which can lead to breakouts.  

It’s unsurprising that we’ll all go through maskne at the moment, but luckily it’s quite simple to manage with some changed, good products, and various helpful treatments.

What can you do?

1. Don't forget to wash your mask regularly, ideally, you would have a clean one every day! We like to have numerous masks so that we can have them on rotation 

2. Fabric - consider the fabric of your mask  This will reduce the risk of rubbing and irritation which can harm the skin barrier and cause upset. We like natural materials such as cotton or silk. 

3. No make up where the mask sits. No one is going to see that area anyway! And it just further blocks the pores and stops the skin from breathing. 

4. Use products that support your skin's natural barrier rather than harms it. Probiotics and vitamin B are a great place to start! 

5. Always always cleanse your face! We like to double cleanse nightly to ensure it's squeaky clean. I personally like to use an oil cleanser to cleanse and remove makeup!
