Due to environmental exposure and lifestyle, our skin can easily become dehydrated revealing a dry, dull appearance. Emerald Sun Hydrosol has a unique ability to deeply hydrate while protecting the skin with powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Emerald Sun Hydrosol is not a toner but a highly effective serum blend of multiple plant extracts that are known to improve the overall integrity of the skin while restoring maximum hydration.
Superstar ingredients such as Beta Glucan combined with Hyaluronic Acid are potent humectants locking in hydration, preventing moisture loss as well as protecting against bacteria and free radical damage.
Peony Root Extract has impressive anti-inflammatory and calming properties and also decreases hyper-pigmentation. This beautiful delicate flower packs a punch when it comes to healing the skin.
Tips: For optimal results, apply Emerald Sun Hydrosol Serum to clean dry skin in the morning to protect from oxidative stress throughout the day. Follow with your facial oil moisturiser. For an advanced age-defying effect, apply a few drops of Phyto-Infusion Serum prior to your final moisturiser. Ideal for all skin types.
Nourish your skin from within with a heart-warming Golden Latte.
For hundreds of years, people around the world have used turmeric for its healing properties and cosmetic benefits. The bright, yellow-orange spice is related to ginger and is available fresh or as a ground spice.
Turmeric receives its health benefits primarily due to the active ingredient curcumin, a bioactive component of turmeric. Curcumin has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and modern scientific research understands the positive impact of turmeric on our overall health as well as its healing benefits in skin. Due to these potent properties, turmeric has the ability to reduce inflammation within the body which can reduce flare-ups on the skin such as acne and eczema keeping the skin calm.
"Golden Milk, also called turmeric latte is a delicious way of receiving some of the health benefits of this healing spice. It also covers all three winter skin tips; it's hydrating, rich in antioxidants from the spices and with a touch of coconut oil, adds healthy fat and enhances the rich flavour. Golden Milk is plant-based milk made fresh with organic turmeric, ginger, pepper and coconut oil for good saturated fat with a touch of cinnamon and honey. It's deliciously savoury and warming to the body as well as deeply nourishing. It's very easy to make from scratch and keeps well in the fridge to reheat later. "
Golden Milk Recipe
350ml Cashew milk (or any milk of your choice)
¼ tsp ground turmeric
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp crushed fresh ginger
2-3 tbsp organic virgin coconut oil
1 tsp Raw Honey
A grind of black pepper
I use Nespresso milk frother to heat the milk. Once the milk is hot, pour into a mug, add all the ingredients and whisk (if you don’t have a milk frother you can toss all the ingredients into a saucepan and whisk constantly over a gentle heat.) Then sprinkle with a little more cinnamon to serve.
