Skin and soul - my most sensitive parts
30 December 2021
Hey there Skin Juicers! So thrilled to be here, chatting all things skin with you all.
It’s the perfect time of year for me to tell you about my long journey into finding the perfect things for my skin because summer was always when I needed it most.
Hot, humid days spent with my cousins at the beach meant my mum was on the hunt for every single bottle of the particular sunscreen we needed. You see, not only were we all Pisces women with the most sensitive of souls, but the nasties in 90s sunscreens meant most brands made us all itchy and then led to sometimes painful eczema breakouts.
Ask me if this sunscreen smelled good. Did we look cute after application? Did it sting our eyes and make us beg not to have SO MUCH of it rubbed onto our faces? I think you can guess: absolutely not, omg no, and yes, please, ME EYES!
So yes, we avoided sunburn - but then what? Winter rolled around and once again, Mum was in a skin routine for me. I grew up in regional NSW, where winter winds bit through your clothes and made skin raw and sore. As far back as I can remember, I would leave my bath or shower to Step 2 of the daily routine which was sorbolene cream from neck to ankle. This was the preventative measure and it worked - some of the time.
As an adult, I look back and think my skin has improved and is less sensitive; that is, until I put something on it that sets it off like something overly perfumed or with some hidden nasty. I still find the weather can set off my skin and during the warmer months, regularly wake with a random spot on my body having been scratched until the skin’s broken while I was asleep.
Discovering Skin Juice happened for me when visiting my local salon, where my friend and facial magician introduced me to the range she loved. She knew I was someone who rarely tried new things on my skin, but promised me the stuff she had would not only make me fall in love with the results but that it also smelled better than anything she’d ever used. I walked out with my first eye serum and haven't looked back.
That was more than two years ago, and now I am a daily lover of Skin Juice. My 4-year-old and my husband have their own Green Juice pots because it’s the magical stuff that fixes all the little concerns they have - and they’re not allowed to touch my stuff!
So this summer, if you need some skin magic in your life - let me tell you: this stuff is beyond compare.
