Sarah Brown is the founder of Pai Skincare. Entrepreneur, mum and sensitive-skinned soul. She is our Bridechilla podcast guest on Episode 349.
The last anti-histamine tablet I ever took was on my wedding day almost 8 years ago. I was totally paranoid I was going to start itching uncontrollably in the middle of my vows; I was leaving nothing to chance.
For those of you getting hitched this year and wondering how to ensure calm skin on your big day, read on.
In episode 349, Sarah shares some of the benefits of using oils or sensitive skin. Bridechilla founder Aleisha has has some wonderful results using Pai's Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil.
In the last few years, Facial Oils have taken the beauty world by storm, and it’s been fantastic to see so many people incorporate them into their regimes.
With a host of amazing organic Oils available, it can be easy to become a dedicated fan – and leave more traditional Face Creams behind.
Here’s why I think a good skincare regime combines BOTH CREAMS AND OILS, and how they perform differently on the skin.
Choose your facial oil carefully and it can make a huge and very visible difference to your skin.
They key thing about Oils is that the actives are present at a much higher concentration as they’re not diluted, so they have a more tangible effect on the skin.
The key thing to remember is you cannot receive hydration from an Oil alone – despite what some brands may claim.
This is where Creams come into their own…
The simple purpose of a Cream is to HYDRATE and PROTECT the skin. A Cream is a mixture or ‘emulsion’ of fats, water and actives that are able to hydrate skin thanks to their very high water content, which is around 60-80%.
A Cream drives moisture into the skin while fatty oils and ingredients like vegetable-derived glycerin prevent the water from evaporating. This hydration boost means that skin cells retain moisture, leaving skin supple, healthy and glowing.
Additional actives are also able to target specific skin needs, but the results may be less visible than with an Oil as they’re present at much lower concentrations.
Sarah Brown is the founder of Pai Skincare, a company committed to providing ultra-pure certified organic skin care products that are loaded with skin-soothers and completely free from irritants.
After developing a skin irritation and having no success with other products claiming to be organic, Sarah decided to create her own products. Pai products are made for people with sensitive skin, by people with sensitive skin.
