The time when you were kissed by the sun and embraced by salt water is gone for a while. The coming period has its charms, but it’s a little less friendly to our skin.
Pampered by the sun, the skin will need special care in the autumn, which will restore its freshness and softness.
Therefore we at Flower and Spice suggest that you follow five rules in September for shiny and healthy skin.

1. Stay hydrated
It is of utmost importance to drink enough liquid. We often “spice up” water with fresh mint or lemon balm, add sliced strawberries, pomegranate seeds, a cucumber, lime, lemon, or some spices. Always have a bottle of water with you.

2. Prepare your skin
Cleanse your skin with a gentle exfoliator. Apply the exfoliator on your cheeks with dry hands to absorb as a cream. With gentle circular movements, rub the exfoliator counter-clockwise into your cheeks, the vertex, forehead, chin, the edge where the nose joins the face, and the neck. Take your time. Leave it to soak in for about a minute. Then moisturise it to create a milky emulsion that further cleanses your skin.
Wet a small towel with warm water and slowly wipe the product off.

3. Nana knows
Kneipp therapy was already known to our grandmothers. It’s the most effective method for good blood circulation. Now that you've wiped your face with a warm towel, it’s time for cold water. Keep it really cold. Wet your palms and place them on your neck, cheeks, and the forehead by gently pushing your skin up. This should take 40 seconds. (Of course, close the tap in the meantime.) Wait for the skin to dry. You can also wipe it with a towel. Now you're ready.

4. Roses and coriander
A gentle blend of precious rose and sensual coriander serum in a bottle is a valuable gift for your skin. Since Flower and Spice works in harmony with nature and its gifts, the serum contains no unnecessary artificial ingredients, but only those that anoint your skin. The first time you use the serum, which you apply with clean finger pads, your skin will glow. Fragrant drops will nourish it and restore its gloss, colour, and elasticity. The edges of the wrinkles will become softer, skin’s natural tone will be highlighted. Serum as a basic nutrient is suitable for all skin types.

5. Natural woman
Take time to sleep, to hang out with your loved ones, to laugh and hug, to enjoy healthy and not-so-healthy bites, a glass of wine, silence, and music that pleases you. Take time for yourself. A few times a day. You deserve it.
With the help of Flower and Spice, your skin will light up, while everything that makes you happy will put a smile on your face.

Repeats become rituals and rituals get under your skin:).
