    PART 2

     The skin has been freshly cleansed, hydrated and its PH balanced with Floral Rain. What to do now?

    The skin is receptive and absorbent at this stage, so make good use of its state by feeding’it with vital vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids that regenerate the skin. We want these active nutrients to go deep into the skin, for the circulation to surface, pick them up and take them into the deepest layers and spread them about, feeding every cell.

    This can only be achieved with a specialised, vigorous massage and the very best quality oils.  Soveral face oils are designed for this purpose, preservative-free, pure and organic, and naturally rich in essential fatty acids, bio-available vitamins and active essential oils, especially selected to stimulate health cell-regeneration and to purify the skin inside and out.


      A few steps from Alexandra to get the most out of your morning massage…


    The Forever Young Oil Massage

    Massage from chest and neck upwards following the Soveral massage. Our FOREVER YOUNG FACE OIL has synergetic ‘cocktail’ of actives to tackle pollutants throughout the day whilst keeping your skin healthy and well-nourished throughout the day.

    For when needing a little extra help or when the skin is dehydrated or dull, SUPERHERO PLUMPING POTION will come to the rescue! Just a few drops after the oil massage and the skin will suddenly feel plumped, and super refreshed!


     Midnight Oil Massage

    Following the evening cleanse, it’s time to ‘squeeze the worries of the day out of the facial muscles, thank the skin for all its hard work and reward it with a nice massage and an oil that will aid its detoxification and regeneration process whilst you sleep.


    For those with very sensitive skin or acne issues, it is still important to nourish the skin.  Using our plain Jojoba Oil you can still do our massage, just more gently. It will be a great way to activate the lymphatic system, encouraging the skin to heal and find balance. If having oil on the skin is an issue, you may remove the oil after the massage with a damp cotton pad or a warm flannel.

    Once you get used to the Jojoba Oil massage you may want to start adding a little Lavender or Tea Tee to add a mild antiseptic to kill pathogens and further help the skin find balance. Please do follow our blending safety guidelines on our website.

    The main products that are associated with this routine are:

    Forever Young face oil, Jojoba Oil, Midnight Oil face oil & Super Hero Plumping Potion

     We can blend an oil to suit your skin and your desires!

     This is particularly useful for those who have allergies, certain medical conditions or just want something personal and special for yourself or give as a gift.

    Soveral Cleansing rules Do’s & Don’ts


    • Cleanse twice a day
    • Use a clean face cloth each day
    • Include the neck & chest
    • A two-step cleansing if wearing foundation or heavy make-up
    • Test the skin’s PH after each cleanse with Floral Rain


    • Over cleanse
    • Rinse face with water
    • Be harsh around the eye area
    • Wait until bedtime to cleanse if wearing foundation, remove as early as possible
    • Use foaming or stripping products that affect the skin’s PH

      Morning cleansing:
      The skin detoxifies whilst we sleep, depositing toxins in the lymphatic fluids ready to be expelled, this is what makes us look a bit ‘puffy’ in the morning.  The best we can do for our skin in the morning is to help it complete its detoxification process within its underlining tissues and cleanse away any impurities deposited on the surface of the skin.

      STEP 1 – Dry Skin Brushing - Lymphatic activation & dead cell removal.
      STEP 2 – Awaken Cleanse – Purify the surface of the skin with the natural antiseptic properties of the lavender essential oil.
      STEP 3 – Floral Rain – Balance the skin’s PH & hydrate.

      Evening Cleansing:
      Simply massage Awaken Cleanser onto dry skin and remove with a hot damp face flannel.

      STEP 1 – Awaken Cleanse
      STEP 2 – Angel Balm Deep Pore Cleanse
      STEP 3 – Spray Floral Rain

      Removing eye make up:
      Always start your cleansing routine with removing eye make-up first:
      STEP 1 - Damp a cleansing pad with warm water add a little Awaken Cleanser or Angel Balm if wearing waterproof eye make-up, rub the product onto the material so that it is semi-absorbed.
      STEP 2 - Gently remove the make up without causing too much friction.
      STEP 3 -  Repeat with just a damp warm cleansing pad to remove all residue.

      STEP 1 - Dry Skin Brushing will remove dead skin cells that are ready to be shed away. Follow the instructions with the Soveral Dry Skin Brushes
      STEP 2 - Angel Balm – Do a vigorous face massage then remove with a hot damp flannel, concentrating on rough areas for a deeper exfoliation. For very rough scaly skin mix a little balm with fine sea salt and rub over the dry skin.

      STEP 1 – Awaken Cleanse with a gentle warm flannel, for very sensitive skin swap Awaken Cleanser with Soveral Jojoba Oil.
      STEP 2 – It is important to bring balance to even sensitive skin, if Floral Rain is too irritating, spray it into a damp cotton pad and dab onto the skin.

      Follow the steps above then add a drop of Lavender and a drop of Tea Tree essential oils onto a cotton bud and dab onto the spots.

      For those who may not be converted to a facial mist yet, or be aware of the benefits, Floral Rain is a skin quencher, packed with nourishing extracts of aloe vera and floral waters.

      Specifically designed by Alexandra as the perfect finish to a good cleansing routine by bringing the skin's PH to a healthy level.

      All skin cleansing, even the gentlest, will at some level disturb the skin's acid mantle, raising or lowering its PH levels, affecting the skin's microbiome. By simply spraying Floral Rain on freshly cleaned skin, you are encouraging the skin to return to its optimal PH level... as well as rehydrating and minimising pores.

      Keep an eye out for the next stage of Alexandra’s spring cleaning for skincare!

      In line with our focus on spring cleaning your skincare, we are offering 25% off Floral Rain for the next week!

  3. I have been treating skin for 15 years and every year I hear the same complaints from my clients and friends - they are going through a bad skin phase… What they don’t realise is that almost everyone is going through the same thing at the same time!

    As the first signs of autumn make an appearance, the skin starts to misbehave.  As soon as we touch that dial on our central heating at home, everything changes.  Central heating instantly sucks the moisture out of the air, creating a dry environment.  Our skin is used to fresh air, open windows and the outdoors that comes with summer... Suddenly it is deprived of any moisture, save for when we go outdoors, but even then, it is met with cold winds that contract our pores, not allowing it to absorb much moisture from the air. Whilst we may not be completely settling back into offices and air conditioning just yet, face masks cause their own reactions and a change in atmosphere and stresses will still play a large factor in the skin’s behaviour.

    Being deprived of sufficient moisture and exposed to a dry environment, our skin forms a protective outer layer of dead skin cells, this very thin layer of dry skin ensures that no more moisture is allowed to leave the skin but it also blocks the pores and will eventually start flaking out. 

    For those with the tendency to break out this is a most dangerous time of year.  The thin dry layer of skin blocks the pores and any little inflammation within the skin is going to flare up, re-awakening any leftover bacteria from previous breakouts.

    Let your skin be naked - Keep skin bare and breathing as much as you can.

    If your skin is prone to flare ups and takes on a life of its own, don’t fight it, let it calm down of its own accord. Make sure you care for the skin flare ups as you would your mood. We have a few products that are wonderful for this - each featured below - but try to avoid anything new. Play it safe; less is more.

    If you are making the most of the great outdoors, your skin may need of a little more moisture, so have a think about a moisturiser with added vitamins that can boost that natural nourishment.

    For those looking for a clean glowing complexion from the comfort of your home, take a look at our blog talking about Honey extraction – your pores will thank you and you will smell heavenly too.

    If you are starting to travel again, pack sensibly and look for products that serve more than one purpose. ANGEL BALM is an award-winning multi-purpose balm that can be used as a cleanser, a mask, a lip balm, a dry skin saviour. Suitable for all skin types, you will be covered for all sorts.

    To help you be a step ahead and prevent this from happening we have put together these three little skin saviours:

    1 - VOLCANO ASH - Purifying Mask
    A mask of many talents, Volcano Ash detoxifies, nourishes, firms, plumps and beautifies skin. With an intoxicatingly refreshing blend of Bentonite Clay, Palmarosa and Peppermint, it extracts impurities whilst offering essential nutrients & vitamins to help bring the skin back to life. Use twice a week to keep skin detoxified.

    2 – MOODY SKIN - Balancing Moisturiser
    Designed for sensitive and problematic skin types, Lemon, Lavender, Palmarosa and Aloe Vera join forces with a splash of natural Vitamin E to hydrate and repair in equal measure. Use daily to keep skin nourished and protected from pollutants.

    3 – SPOTLESS - Blemish Treatment Gel
    This little ‘wonderpot’ packs quite the punch. Spotless forms a clear film, protecting the affected area from bacteria whilst it regenerates with a synergetic blend of three powerful essential oils; Limonene, Linalool and Lavender. Aloe Vera and Evening Primrose oil heal and nourish the skin to prevent it from scarring.

    As well as using it directly on existing spots throughout the day, apply as an overnight mask over problem areas and on glands behind the ears to prevent breakouts.

    Last but by no means least, take the time to rest. Slow down, listen to your body and embrace the calm when you can!
