How To Keep Your Skin Glowing and Protected;
When you dream about your skin, you might envisage it being smooth and glowing, but sadly the reality can be somewhat different. You might think you need to completely overhaul your skincare routine, bringing in an array of new products to fix the problems you face, but in fact this is not necessarily the case when it comes to perfect skin.
I’m pretty low-maintenance when it comes to my skin-care routine. I try to keep my routine clean and minimal and tend not to use too many products, taking a less-is-more approach, so the few that I do use have to do the heavy lifting. My skin always errs on the side of dry, so moisturising is a big part of my daily beauty regimen. At the top of my list is therefore a great moisturiser and in Pamoja’s award-winning Revive Multi-action Face Cream I have discovered a hero product.
Pamoja, a Swahilli word meaning ‘together’, is a luxury capsule collection of natural skincare products which uses nourishing botanical ingredients rich in omega fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Created by skincare formulator Sarah Taylor with self-care rituals in mind, this range of versatile products will not only transform your skin leaving it hydrated and glowing, but it is also designed to help calm the mind, allowing you to unwind and relax after a stressful day.
Handmade in the UK in small batches, the collection is vegan, cruelty-free, and palm oil and food allergens free. It combines innovative science-backed natural actives with high quality natural, organic and wild-harvested botanicals to soothe and hydrate, repair and protect even the most sensitive skin from environmental stress and damage. It is therefore suitable for all skin types.
With its hydrating blend of oils – Marula, Kahai™ and Red Raspberry Seed, Arctic Blackcurrant CO2, and Hyaluronic Acid, this cream feels great on the skin. It also smells lovely with Red Mandarin, Geranium Bourbon and Ylang Ylang essential oils providing a very delicate, natural scent.
I have been using the face cream twice daily as recommended, every morning and again in the evening as an overnight treatment, massaging it into my face, neck and décolletage after cleansing. The cream is beautifully lightweight so can easily be combined with serums or oils, super moisturising without being too thick or heavy on the surface of the skin and it instantly leaves the skin feeling hydrated, silky soft and smooth.
I love it because it adds an extra boost of moisture and long-lasting hydration, yet it absorbs into the skin without leaving any greasy residue, making it perfect for hot summer days and also as a great base for make-up. It’s already restored some of the vibrancy that my complexion has been lacking recently and it is gentle enough that my increasingly sensitive skin does not get irritated.
Sustainability is at the heart of the Pamoja brand, so it scores very highly with us. Products are designed to help you consume less, by being multi-tasking, only using sustainable natural ingredients and fully recyclable packaging.
Many of us, myself included, have attempted to whittle our beauty regimens down to a handful of hero products. Pamoja Revive Multi-action Face Cream is one such product and definitely should be included. I see it becoming a regular staple in my beauty regimen because it works, and it also makes me feel good.
