From the Fields - Issue #35
Are you looking for new solutions to keeping your skin glowing as the harsh cold winds are blowing? We sat down with Kensington Market's Province Apothecary to get tips on their top 5 favourite seasonal products.
1) Hydrating Rescue Balm
This product is a dry skin saviour, especially during the cold winter months! Apply it to your lips, hands, feet, face + all over the body for ultimate hydration and nourishment. This unscented balm is safe for all skin types, even the most sensitive skins (and babies!). Apothecary infuses this balm with propolis, making it naturally water proof and wind resistant; this is a great protective layer against the outside elements. Use this product liberally throughout the day to combat dry, cracked and irritated skin issues.
2) Custom Face Serum
Province Apothecary Custom Face Serums are true to their name. They are hand tailored to you specifically, addressing your skin type and concerns. It's important to change your routine seasonally as you skin changes with the season. You can order online by filling out a questionnaire about your skin, or come into our holistic skincare clinic located in Kensington Market, Toronto for a customized facial treatment + have the serum hand blended for you after your appointment! They record your serum recipe in your client file so you can repurchase this luxurious, made for you blend at any time. It's best used nightly with a bit of water for maximum benefits. Good for all skin types + concerns.
3) Uplift Therapeutic Roll-On
As the days get shorter and darker, we love using this roll on to keep our spirits lifted and beat the winter blues. Their therapeutic blend of essential oils are invigorating, stress relieving and naturally anti-depressant. Apply oil to your wrists, temples, and back of neck (into your hair line) and let the essential oils absorb into the skin.
4) Moisturizing Oil Cleanser
Their Moisturizing Cleanser + Make Up Remover with Avocado & Raspberry Oil is great for all skin types. These hydrating oils remove make up & excess oil, restoring your skin’s natural radiance while gently cleansing without over-drying your skin or destroying its natural pH. Their cleanser helps your skin stay nourished, balanced, and healthy. Great for the winter season as it maintains ample moisture levels within the skin and promotes balanced hydration. Never feel tight, dry or irritated after cleansing; once you start using this oil cleanser you will notice a difference instantly!
5) Hangover Tincture
Their Hangover Remedy is a handcrafted botanical tincture that uses traditional herbal methods to help alleviate nausea and headaches, while cleansing and toning the liver and detoxifying your body. It is an all natural blend of flowers, herbs, seeds, and roots, combined to ensure adaptogenic, tonic, carminative, and anti-emetic effects. Keep this herbal remedy nearby as a preventative measure during the holidays when you'll likely need a line of defence after a night of socializing! Take one teaspoon internally with water three or four times per day... or as often as needed.
