June rejuvenation: five all-natural skin tonics – and why they are perfect post-lockdown
Suddenly, your diary is filling up. With coronavirus restrictions lifting and (safe) social gatherings back on the agenda for many, we all want to look our best after months of seeing friends and family via screens only. Here are five super-speedy skin tonics that are perfect for day-long skin care – all made by Mother Nature and suitable for all skin types.
Before we begin our sojourn into skincare, allow us to take off on a tiny etymological tangent. The month of June gets its name from the Latin Iunius, “of Juno (Iuno),” referring to the Roman goddess of marriage, childbirth and fertility. What’s fascinating here is that this name is derived from the Latin iuventas, “youth,” which is the same root that gives us words like “juvenile” and “rejuvenate” in English today.
So as we begin to safely gather with our nearest and dearest once again, it’s the perfect time to explore five super-speedy, rejuvenating skin tonics that will keep your skin looking fresh, youthful and healthy. All made by Mother Nature, with none of the nasty stuff you find in typical high street cosmetics. Grab your flannel and let’s get started.
Cleansing facial scrub
The foundation of any good skincare regime is a decent face scrub. Exfoliating once or twice a week lifts away dirt, debris and dead skin cells to reveal the fresh skin below – balancing your complexion and giving your skin that silky smooth feeling. Try this deep and gentle face scrub, made with rosehips and bamboo powder.

Whenever you see the word hyaluronic, give your pores permission to get excited. With the ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, hyaluronic acid is something of a super ingredient – plumping fine lines and wrinkles to leave your skin looking firmer, more youthful and well hydrated. Hyaluronic acid also enhances the production of collagen – one of the most important building blocks of healthy skin. Make this serum - which includes organic pomegranate extract - part of your beauty regime.
Smoothing eye cream
Beauty is around the eye of the beholder of this smoothing eye cream. Made with pomegranate, bilberry and rose, it nurtures the delicate skin around the eye area. With healing arnica oil plus melon seed oil and borage flower to reduce dark circles and puffiness.
