Mother day Organic gift ideas


On Mothers day is all about thanking your mother for all the hard work she has done over the years. Flowers are lovely –  but why not treat her to something a little bit more special.

I have spent a lot time researching the best sets this year and I have  chosen a few of my favourites for you.

Neom Luxury Organic candle  £15 

NEOM Luxury Organics candles are made using only vegetable wax and pure essential oils rather than synthetic fragrances so they burn without releasing harmful

pollutants, toxins or soot. They work as powerful holistic treatments as you breathe in the scented air so it is best to burn them for between 2-4 hours at a time. These smaller travel candles are great to use in smaller rooms such as bathrooms, or for trying new scents.

Each candle has 1 wick and burns for up to 20 hours (30% longer than standard premium candles).

They have different types of scented candles I chose this blend as I love Jasmine and sweet basil, they also come in a bigger size if you want it to burn for longer

It is such a reasonable price compared to other top brands and you know you arent inhaling chemicals just a lovely Aroma

Secret tips to have younger looking eyes!

As a Facialist a common area of concern for aging are the eyes, whether its to remove dark circles, reduce puffiness or prevent wrinkles.  Below you find some top tips and advice that you may not have heard of to give yourself brighter and younger looking eyes.

 Serums/ or gels rather than eye creams.

Try using either eye gels or eye serums as Eye creams tend to be thick in texture and heavy on ingredients ( ie mineral oil).   As they only sit on the surface of the skin this can be a common cause of milia, which are the white lumps under the skin and they are hard to remove. This also applies to a lot of face creams so only apply the face cream up to the top of the cheek bone.  Note: the removal of milia should be done by a professional therapist.

For more information about mila removal you can contaact me monique.1uk@gmail.com 07984351859

 Less is more

A lot of women think if they apply layer upon layers of creams or serum that it will make more of a difference but you would be wrong, the skin around the eye area is only a couple of layers, so it will only soak up what it needs then the rest will just sit there.  It can also be the cause of dark circles as well as a waste.  Many surgeons are now scooping out excess eye cream from inside the skin while doing eye surgery. So next time you apply your eye gel remember less is more.

Tip: When applying eye gels or serum apply above the eyelids too or where your sunglasses would cover

Environ C quence eye gel

An effective topical alternative to Botox that is safer, milder and injection-free…at a fraction of the cost! In comparison it lasts longer, is less expensive, non-toxic and there are no needles involved!

It effectively reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face and helps prevent the formation of new lines.  The Ionzyme® C-Quence Eye Gel employs the latest cosmetic technology by using a unique combination of three super-powerful peptides, Matrixyl®, DermaxylTM and Argireline®, for use on the delicate and sensitive eye area, particularly where “crow’s-feet” and deep lines are visible

Focus Frown Serum

How can you reduce those dreaded lines caused by repeated facial expressions? Today’s stress is enough to make anyone frown – but all this frowning can only result in premature frown lines on the forehead and around the eye area.

Environ’s new Ionzyme Focus Frown Serum is a scientifically proven formula, that when applied to the targeted area, assists to smooth and soften frown lines. Frown lines become lighter, muscle tension reduces in the forehead area and deep lines become less prominent. Skin is healthier and more elastic resulting in younger, smoother looking skin.

Only the very best raw materials are used in the formula. These ingredients are individually very expensive putting them out of reach of many other cosmetic houses. It has always been Environ’s philosophy to invest in only the best ingredients that really work, rather than expensive packaging and marketing.

For more information or to buy any of  these products contact Monique 07984351859 monique.1uk@gmail.com

Drink plenty of water

Darks circles can be related to the kidneys so try to drink plenty of water. Lemon and warm water is the best way to start of your morning, but can also be taken at any time during the day.  Try to avoid excessive alcohol and caffeine. You may also want to consider doing a colon cleanse. I have just finished the 10 day course and I was amazed how my dark circles went away and how revitalised I feel. I have mentioned it before in my winter blog. (Healthy starter pack)

 Cold teaspoon

Forget about cucumbers or tea bags the best tried and tested method to invigorate the eyes is the back of a cold teaspoon.  Just leave them over night in the fridge and as soon as you wake up place the back of the teaspoons onto the eyes. The cold increases the blood lymph circulation this will also help aid removal of waste & toxins

Jade rollers are also great for the getting the circulation going.

Lypmhatic drainage Massage

                                                                                                                                   This is probably one of the best methods to remove any puffiness under the eyes (puffiness is caused by excess fluid waste and toxins) it will also help plump up the muscles. Start by using your ring fingers at the temples, apply firm pressure (as long as it’s not too uncomfortable).  Draw the finger under the eyes into the socket up and around to the temples repeatedly. Do this at least 5 minutes every night when applying your eye product

Pinch around the brow area (hold each pinch for 20 secs) you can be very firm whilst doing this.  This will help relax the muscles and give it a natural lift especially around the frown area as this is a muscle that is used frequently.

Protect your eyes from the sun

We all know how bad the sun ages our skin and as the eye area is a lot thinner we have to make sure we take extra care. Make sure the serums or gels you use contain an Spf ingredients such as Zinc Dioxide or Titanium Dioxide as they are best ones to look out for both eye, face and body. It should also contain anti oxidants to protect your eyes from the environment.  This should be used all year around.  We may have cold winters but UVA rays are still present which leads to premature ageing. You should also wear appropriate sunglasses in the summer.

Prevention is better than cure

Also remember prevention is better than cure so best start as young as you can especially from the age of 21 use a good SPF or strong in antioxidents eye serum around the area and also the face. Also by massaging the eye area on a daily basis this may take up a little time now but it may save you money or even surgery in the long term.

Parents it may have been too late for you but you can help your children make sure they use good sunglasses in the summer months.
