This question comes from Anna, a 45 year old Australian mum.
"I stumbled across your products online and have read so many great things that I think that I have to try some! I am wondering if you could suggest some products that would be suitable for me. I am a 45 year old mum. My skin is fair to medium and has always been problematic with hormonal breakouts, blackheads and congestion. Now that I am getting older I need something to address this but also protect my skin from drying out and wrinkles. Its almost like my skin is oily but dry at the same time if that makes any sense!!"
Thank you Anna.I am so glad that you stumbled across us and very pleased that you have written. What you are experiencing is certainly not out of the ordinary.
It sounds to us like you have a combination of dry and oily skin and you want to control hormonal breakouts/congestion; from this, these are the products we would have you consider to try.
Definitely use the cotton muslin wash cloth when washing your face daily. And be sure to use a clean one every time. Wash them regularly. This way there is no bacterial transfer. I personally get a fresh one, hang it to dry, when it dries I throw it into the laundry basket ready to be washed and then re-used. The wash cloth also helps to gently exfoliate your skin lightly everyday. Which is very important to keep skin fresh and clean.
To wash your face use the Sweet Almond Oil & Vitamin E Cleanser. This cleanser cleans your skin without stripping it of its natural oil, so your face is not left very dry.
Follow your cleanse with the Apple Cider Vinegar & Aloe Vera Toner. This toner can help address age spots and acne, reduce skin redness, tighten and minimise pores, replenish moisture essential for healthy skin and improve overall skin health.Our toner contains unpasteurised and unfiltered apple cider vinegar which still has the active “Mother” intact. Apples naturally have flavonoids, carotenoids, and phytochemicals including quercetin, catechin, phlorizin, and chlorogenic acid. All of which are strong antioxidants. In the fermentation process, the sugar from apples turns into alpha hydroxyl acids, which are the main acne fighting components in this natural elixir.Alpha hydroxyl acid acts to balance the skin's natural acidity (pH), increase cellular turnover with natural lactic and malic acid (by breaking down old skin cells), reduce oil and get rid of bacteria. Fortified with natural, active ingredients and vitamin B1, B2, B6, and C, baimeni's toner is a naturally effective anti-aging skin booster and is ready to revive your skin.
Then, apply the Eye & Face Serum with Hyaluronic Acid all over eye, face and neck. The serum aids in the fight against free radicals that cause signs of ageing by hydrating and rejuvenating skin. Dehydrated fine lines will disappear in their plumped-up state. The Hyaluronic Acid serum can also help control excess oil that causes breakouts. baimeni’s serum has an amazing ability to help retain water in the skin which makes for a plumper, hydrated and perky looking complexion. And to keep skin nourished and to balance your combination skin, every evening use the blend of 9 natural essential oils.
If you feel that is too oily, don't skip it, just mix it with the Restorative Face Cream, and that way you can use it morning and night!
And given your combination skin,you might need to have a play with using an oil or cream in the morning. Depends on how your skin feels. Also don't forget the sunscreen!
I use the lip balm daily as I just simply love it to keep my lips soft and supple.
And twice a week I use the honey mask, I leave it on for 20 minutes as it really recharges my skin leaving it super soft. Our raw honey is antibacterial and antimicrobial which means your pores are left squeaky clean. With the healing and therapeutic effects of honey, it works it’s magic on ruptured skin where you have had a pimple. With its naturally humectant properties it clings on to moisture and when used with a moisturiser it will cling onto the moisture molecules and sink it into the skin. With the added benefits of the exfoliating properties of enzymes such as alpha hydroxyl you can just sit back and watch your skin glow! The honey mask also has granules in it so I lightly exfoliate, then leave it on for 20 minutes. When I need more exfoliation I use the Silky Skin Exfoliant.
