Warm up this winter with a lava shell massage

These warming lava shells are the ultimate stress buster. They are non-porous, eco friendly and uses 100% genuine recycled tiger clams.  


The comforting warmth as it massage your muscles, eases tension, relives pain, renews toxins and restores balance.

A much more gentle alternative to a deep tissue massage, working on all areas of concern both mentally and physically. 

But most of all, it leaves you deeply relaxed and warm to the bones! 


Mind Mapping your Skin

The truth is, your skin is under hormone and nervous control!

This means that many factors in life including genetics play their part in determining your skin type(s). It's important not to put your skin in a box and get sucked up into thinking you are only one skin type as you it's far more complex than that. 

I always look at my T-zone area to determine what category I fall into and then check the rest of the face to see if it matches. you need to ask your self a few questions to figure this out.  


Q1. How does my skin feel to touch?

Q2. How does moisturizer absorb into my skin?

Q3. Does my skin react to certain products?

There are many more questions you can ask to figure out your main concern areas. But what is important here is that you keep it simple.  

I find brain storming(or mind mapping as its called now) gives you a good visual idea of which direction you want to go down with regards to treating your skin. Any concerns that you can't manage Is best seeking advice from the doctor or dermatologist.  

 Mind Mapping your Skin

I have created a a couple mind maps of the main skin types which you can follow to get ideas on how to treat your concern area.

 Top tips for all skin types

Drink plenty of water. 

Take makeup off every night to stop the build up of bacteria. 

Adjust your skincare routine to suit the weather. 

Use sunscreen all year round to prevent premature aging. 

Book a facial every season. 

Give your face a boost of vitamins by putting on night cream when going to Bed as your pores open through sweating at night and will absorb the goodness in the cream better than in the day.
