A new year is a time to reflect on the year that has passed and anticipate what we would like for the year to come. For some people it is changing careers, moving to a new home, having a baby, getting married, losing weight or quitting smoking. If you are seeking a healthier you, don’t just consider joining a gym. Eating organic foods containing antioxidants and regular exercise do play an essential role in a healthier you and while we contemplate what we put in our bodies, we should also consider what we put on our body.

Our skin is our largest organ and it does absorb what we put on it (the nicotine patch is a clear example of this). On average, women apply some 200 chemicals to their skin each day. At Saffron Rouge, we are completely dedicated to offering our clients pure, effective organic products for skin and body care. Once you make the decision to go green, beginning a new organic skin care regime can be confusing.

Starter Kits are a great way to experiment with new lines; many clients that are torn between brands and will purchase one, two or more Starter Kits before making their final choice. The Starter Kit you choose will depend on your skin care concerns and we have something for everyone.

If your skin is dry, look for products that are nourishing and rich in essential fatty acids. Sensitive skin requires products containing anti inflammatory ingredients. Oily skin is in need of balancing, deep cleansing and clarifying. Ultimately no matter what your skin concerns may be, your regime is about balance. Free radical molecules in the body (a result of smoking, bad nutrition, environmental stresses and sun exposure) are responsible for everything from wrinkles to age spots.

Saffron Rouge offers many free radical busting products and treatments based on antioxidant fruit, vegetables, plants and oils. You can find products to transform mature skin without the use of harsh chemicals or the surgeon’s scalpel.

For anti-aging Starter Kits consider the Pomega5 Trial Kit, Duchess Marden’s Travel Kit, Living Nature’s Skin Essentials Kit Nourishing and Suki’s Complete Care Starter Kit for Youthful Skin.

For oily, acneic or impure skin we recommend the Dr Alkaitis Travel Kit, Suki’s Complete Care Starter Kit for Clear Skin or Dr Hauschka Daily Face Care Kit for Oily.

If your skin is normal the Dr. Hauschka Daily Face Care Kit for Normal, Dry & Sensitive, Suki Complete Care Starter Kit for Even Skin Tone, Duchess Marden Travel Kit, HollyBeth’s Everyday Face Kit for Normal-Dry or Living Nature Skin Essential Kit Balancing.

I speak with clients all the time that have very sensitive skin. My skin is also extremely sensitive and I understand how tricky it can be finding the perfect product. Dr Alkaitis Travel Kit, Suki Complete Care for Calm Skin, Suki Complete Care for Even Skin Tone, Duchess Marden Travel Kit and Dr Hauschka Daily Face Kit for normal, dry & sensitive are all recommended for easily irritated skin.

These Starter Kits will offer you anywhere from 1 weeks supply to 3 months depending on the Kit you choose. Organic skin care products are on par with some of the larger luxury department store brands when it comes to cost but are worth every penny. Once you get started- you’ll be glad you did! Wishing you a very Happy Healthy New Year and New You!
