Here at White & Elm we love for things to be simple, low maintenance and of course natural, so we would never dream of going under the knife to keep our skin looking young. Instead we’ve opted for a more simple and non-evasive method for anti-aging: facial massages!
Can rubbing your face really keep your skin looking young and radiant? Sounds too good to be true, I know, but yes, yes it can!
Sorry to add to your workout routine… but just like the rest of your body, facial muscles require exercise to keep you looking younger!
So how exactly does it work?
Well, first and foremost, facial massages relieve tension in your facial muscles. This tension, whether it’s in the crease between your brows or the corners of your lips, is a huge factor in the formation of wrinkles!
By releasing this tension you are relaxing the muscles in your face and preventing your skin from creasing.
In addition, facial massages increase blood and oxygen circulation under your skin, helping to eliminate toxins and make your skin glow!
We suggest using our Sunflower Deep Pore Cleansing Oil and massaging into your skin for 1-5 minutes every day, focusing on areas of tension.
And Voila! You’ll look younger and more radiant in no time!

While you may be cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen, daily. If you’re not exfoliating, your skin isn’t as healthy as it could be. It is very important to exfoliate your face and body all year round. But after the winter, sloughing away all that dead skin seems even more necessary.
For sure you need to be wearing a daily moisturizer with a minimum of an SPF 15. You also need to look for sunscreens that are labeled Broad Spectrum because this means they have passed specific laboratory testing that shows they protect against both UVA and UVB rays. If you plan to be in direct sun for more than a few hours, please reapply your sunscreen. Also, if you are planning on swimming or sweating heavily opt for a Water-Proof formula as well. It's best to avoid chemical sunscreens altogether because let's face it; we don't want the chemicals we put on our skin to end up in our blood stream. Also, because we don't yet know the impact that nanoparticles will have on our health, it's best to use mineral sunscreens that specifically use non-nano minerals.
