All my life I had to deal with a very sensitive skin, but when you are young you go with the flow and look for all kinds of products to help with your problem. I still remember I would buy a specific cream or lotion, go home very excited after reading the benefits of the cream or lotion, just to find my skin reacting just the opposite as was promised.
At that time a cream was a cream or a lotion was a lotion and I never questioned the ingredients, but rather describe the reactions on my skin as ‘my difficult skin’. Nobody tells you how many harsh chemicals and rubbish are in many commercial creams and lotions. They only keep your focus on the good qualities of the creams and the laboratory tests done to prove its goodness.
Because of the problems I had with my sensitive skin, I started to look at herbal and natural products, but soon learned that even if a cream or lotion stated ‘natural’ it wasn’t always true. I then started to experiment myself by making herbal concoctions, salves and creams.
First thing I want to mention here is when you change your skin range, you must always take in consideration that it is going to affect your skin. It is the same with changing from chemical skin products, to Natural skin products. Our skin must adopt to the change and often react in a way that we don’t expect.
I found this very frustrating and cannot put enough emphasis on it. When we dump chemical skin products for natural organic skin products, our skin needs time to adapt. Your skin detoxifies from the harsh chemicals to a now friendlier product so don’t give up! Many people give up too quickly and label the product as ‘not good’ because their skin react differently to what they expected, or the product does not work ‘immediately’ like they expect it to work. Give your skin time to detox from the harsh chemicals that it had to live with for a long time, you will never look back again. The changes that you see is for the good of your skin accept if there is something in the product which you are allergic too. With a reliable skin product, you do not have to wonder what the product contain, the ingredients are always listed on the label. And although Natural products take a tad bit longer to show the good effects, it’s worth it because the benefits is healing and lasting.
I went through some difficult experiences when starting to work with herbs in order to produce a natural organic product for my skin and I realize one have to know the properties of the herbs in order to know which herbs is best to use for sensitive & mature skin. This led me to understand that plants or herbs contain different qualities to benefit the skin on different levels and for different needs. Not an easy task, but nevertheless when you begin to see what beautiful properties all plants have, you realise Mother Nature has provided us of everything that we need to keep our skin, the most important organ on our body, healthy and beautiful.
We here at L’infini have a wonderful mature night cream, which I use for a while now. Being aware of the properties of the lovely red Hibiscus flower, also known as the ‘botox’ plant, we have decided to incorporate hibiscus flower extract into our night cream. The night cream is the first in this range, but a day cream and a toner/spritzer are sure to follow, and the benefits it has for mature skin types are just amazing! You can truly start to see the difference within 2 weeks. Since I started to use this night cream, my skin has a definite lift, it looks fresher, younger, smoother and the age spots on my face started to visibly disappear. Hibiscus works on many levels of our skin, so the anti-ageing properties in this product is incredible and with regular use your skin will become suppler and more flawless.
