Your skin, just like every other part of your body, is affected by your sleep. Good quality sleep brings restoration for your body after the wear and tear of the day. Skin is the largest organ in the body, and has a highly dependent relationship on your sleep. Getting the minimum seven hours of uninterrupted sleep per night is essential for the skin to recover from the damage of daily living. When you're sleep deprived, tiredness is evident on the skin.

The Ritual of Bathing

The Ritual of Bathing

Many different cultures and faiths practise ritual bathing, a religious or magic ceremony involving the use of water to immerse or anoint a subject's body. From Ancient Roman bathhouses, to modern Christian baptisms; from Japanese-style sentos, to Russian banya and to Nordic hot springs; the ritual of bathing is at once truly personal and evocatively human. But it's not all religious or spiritual experiences.

How to Make Your Skincare Routine More Environmentally Friendly

This can be hard if you don't know where to start. This is particularly true for skincare products. Skincare is…

Terre De Mars 010 Irreverence Nourishing Shampoo Review

Finding the perfect shampoo is a surprisingly difficult feat despite the vastness of the market. Often, we want a shampoo that is powerful enough to make changes to our hair. Due to excess heat and styling, an ideal shampoo should be able to repair damage and encourage growth. Shampoo, by design, cleans your scalp from dirt and product buildup. To do this, the product needs to be penetrative enough to get to the root of our hair problems. Once repaired, it should leave it shiny and in good condition. At the same time, the ideal shampoo should be as derived…

Perfecting Your Night-Time Haircare Routine

Perfecting Your Night-Time Haircare Routine

Having  a haircare routine involves daily effort. The night-time provides an opportunity to provide some TLC for our hair following the stresses of the day. It is also, however, a time when it is extremely vulnerable. Preparing for a full night's rest means we leave our hair in the same condition for several hours once asleep. This could be either a deeply nourishing or damaging period of time. Finding a haircare routine before going to sleep for the night, suited for our individual hair types, can make or break the condition of our hair. Individual hair goals, such as healthy…
