  1. Formula 1 moisturiserv2
    PART 3

    With freshly clean skin that has been ‘fed’ with all the wonderful nutrients from the oil and serum in PART 2 , it’s important to keep all that goodness locked-in, and to ensure the skin is protected against loosing moisture.

    Why is keeping skin moisturised at all times so important?

    Prevent ageing
    When in a dry environment, the air around the skin is lacking in moisture, so it will suck the moisture out of the skin. To protect the body from losing water in this way, the outermost skin cells bind together to form a dry film that prevents more water from evaporating from the body. The more this happens in the natural expression’s folds, the more some skin cells stay permanently bonded together, forming a deeply set wrinkle. Simply, the more dehydrated the skin is, the quicker it will age.

    Best moisturiser: Formula 1

    Acne loves dry skin
    Having an outer film of dry skin cells seals bacteria in the skin pores. Bad bacteria feeds on oxidised sebum and dead skin cells, whilst the good bacteria that fight the bad guys feeds on oxygen. Therefore, allowing skin to breathe is the best possible thing we can do for it.

    Best moisturiser: Rescue Cream (not available online, please contact the clinic)

    Dry skin causes sensitive skin
    Dry skin is irritated more easily and is already on the defense, because dry skin cells are easily torn, causing inflammation. When the skin is well moisturised it becomes more malleable, protected and resistant to irritants.

    Best moisturiser: Moody Skin 

    Men’s skin
    Although men’s skin is slightly more resilient, the same advice applies in all of these instances.

    Best moisturiser: Formula X

    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.

    Over the next few posts, Alexandra is sharing her most valuable advice for each step and we will be offering an exclusive discount on the hero product of each step. Read on & take note!

    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.
