Tag Archives: 100% natural skin care perth
Whether you’re flying across the globe or hopping in the car and crossing the continent, it’s difficult to keep your gorgeous on. As if the stuffy air conditioning and cramped, unmoved muscles weren’t enough, travelling is pretty rough on your complexion, too – and it’s hard not to end up a looking a little worse-for-wear once you reach your destination.
There are, however, a few things you CAN do to avoid that moment of terror as you gaze into the airport toilet mirror and realise you left your makeup in your packed luggage.
Here they are!
1. Take every mini cup of fluid that’s offered to you - and at least every second drink, go for the water!
Dehydrated skin is difficult to avoid whilst travelling, particularly if you’re flying – so work at prevention rather than cure, and keep your body hydrated on the inside. This one’s easy!
2. Avoid makeup.
Okay, we know this one is hard. But even if this means saying goodbye to the man of your dreams before pulling out the baby wipes, then doing the reverse when you reach the other end, it’s worth doing. If you have to wear makeup at either your origin or your destination, at least take it off when you get on the flight. Dehydrated skin is not a good look – but dehydrated skin that can’t breathe is an even worse one. Trust us, or you’ll find out when you finally remove the layers!
If you simply have to wear makeup during the journey, then make it a tinted moisturiser (a 100% natural one, of course) – or better still, simply dab on some concealer on your trouble spots and leave the rest bare.
2. Feed your skin.
You can’t go without food on a day-long journey, and neither can your skin. At least every couple of hours, give it a good spritz with a nutritive toning mist. We love our Oz Goddess Rehydrating toner for this purpose – it contains soothing chamomile, rose floral water to hydrate and grapefruit & Australian quandong extract to refresh and revitalise tired skin.
4. Don’t forget your eyes!
Nothing gives away a lack of sleep like the eyes. They’re the first place to show signs of tiredness, which you’ll no doubt be suffering from after a long journey away from your own bed!
Luckily, there’s an answer. It’s our 100% Pure Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream, and it’s an absolute winner at battling dark circles and puffiness. An independent 4-week study found that
- 97% of women saw a reduction in puffiness
- 87% saw a reduction in dark circles
- 93% saw a reduction in wrinkles
- 93% said it increased firmness.
5. Keep it simple, sexy.
It’s tempting to curl your hair and lashes and put on some sexy pumps when you’re preparing to meet someone special at the other end of your travels – but trust us, you WILL regret this one!
Try to keep it simple. Put your hair in a pony to keep it off your face and avoid greasiness. Wear something comfortable – you can always get changed before you land. And remember, walking through airports with heavy luggage is hard work – your 6-inch peep toes are probably not the best option.
… So there you have it – our guide to travelling the healthy (and comfortable) way!

Introducing our NEW Mokosh Nourishing Face Treatment!
It’s already toted as a miracle for hair health – but what can this golden ingredient do for your complexion?
Actually, quite a lot!
Argan oil, produced from the kernels of the Argan tree (native to Morocco) is rich in essential fatty acids; in particular, lineolic acid, which is a precursor to vitamin E. This makes it twice as rich in tocopherols (vitamin E) as olive oil, giving it incredible moisturising, regenerating and antioxidant properties.
Argan oil boasts a multitude of skin care benefits, including:
- Reducing the signs of premature ageing
- Soothing dry skin with its superior hydrating qualities
- Improving skin’s elasticity with its high protein content
- Reducing scarring and pigmentation
- Regulating the production of sebum (great for combination skin types)
- Preventing stretch marks
- Reducing inflammation
So how can you make the most of these incredible skin-loving properties?
Well, you can buy Argan oil from most health food stores and chemists – but be careful – a lot of commercial ‘pure Argan oil’ products actually contain a plethora of other, not-so-pure ingredients. Be sure to read the ingredients list before making your choice, as with everything else!
If pure Argan oil sounds like a bit much, there are a multitude of natural skin care products that contain this miracle ingredient. One such product is our new 100% Pure Argan Oil Hydration moisturiser. This light, hydrating formula contains SPF 30 to block out the sun’s UVA and UVB rays and is infused with both Argan Oil and Rosehip Oil, as well as nutrient-rich Green Tea and Herbal Extracts to soften and nourish skin.
Yum! Read more about it here.
