Embrace your most nourishing
immune-supporting skincare ritual
More than ever before, it’s so important to be conscious of what you apply to your skin, especially if you keep in mind 60% of what you put on it is absorbed and enters your bloodstream within seconds. A healthy microbiome and immune system are much more than mere trends when it comes to healthy and beautifully ageless skin – and protecting your body from a chemical burden means steering clear of harmful ingredients and choosing healing formulations that are natural and nurturing.
At Africology, we are so fortunate that our calling is to work with nourishing essences from nature, while tapping into the most healing ancient wisdoms. It’s a source of continuous joy to be able to utilise vitamins and minerals, blended into plant extracts and fragranced with the purest essential oils, to not only nourish your skin to its most beautiful state, but also honour and sustain the entire biology of your body.
We consciously choose to create skincare ranges that heal, not harm, and every blend and formulation is entirely free of the chemicals and toxins found in mainstream beauty products. Our carefully selected ingredients don’t deplete or harm the immune system and we use pure essential oils in our blends, which are known to offer anti-viral protection. (For more on studies about the anti-viral benefits of essential oils, click here.)
Balance is at the heart of all we do and we believe your skin should never be dry, but neither should it be coated in a layer of petrolatum or mineral oil just to hydrate it. Just like toxins accumulate when you cannot breathe, the skin will become inflamed and acne will follow if it’s blocked, as its primary function is to excrete.
Being empowered and in control of your own health includes being armed with the right knowledge and making wise choices. You can avoid ingredients that will harm your body’s biology if you are well informed. We’ve listed some ingredients that are red flags here.
In a world so desperately in need of protection from forces that harm, hurt and tire us; and at such a pivotal point in time when we all need to restore, regenerate and renew – nourishing yourself with natural routines and rituals is an act of self-love, a declaration of happiness, and a meaningful health choice.
Healthy skin depends on a skincare routine that includes cleansing, exfoliating, detoxifying, toning and hydrating. These daily rituals were created with the intention to rejuvenate your skin, and finishing each day with a night-time ritual is the perfect way to fold yourself into a safe haven of nurture and calm.
The science behind our skincare products has come a long way...
Although you will see a change in your skin tone and feel the difference almost immediately, there’s no such thing as an instant fix for serious skin ailments.
You need a little time to reap the benefits of a skincare routine that is dedicated to naturally healthy skin. The best results will come through consistent use. Generally, after six weeks of using products once or twice daily, you should notice a visible difference.
Remember that switching to a natural skincare range like Africology might be just what your skin needs to detox from a chemical overload – especially from mineral oils and silicones. Those toxic ingredients often block pores and once the skin starts detoxing, they may surface looking like allergies or breakouts. This is called a “healing crisis”. Be patient... Your skin is resetting and restoring itself. It’s part of the transformation process, and only temporary. You are allowing your body to regenerate and cleanse – with fresh, healthy skin to be revealed.
