A holistic approach to skincare
Championing a vision of beauty that's more than skin-deep – that's the Sönd way.
Here at Sönd, we understand skin. Or more specifically, we understand skin that’s contrary, stressed out or non compliant. Why? Because we have skin that doesn’t behave in the way we want it to.
Although we have an alkalising skincare range that is able to achieve amazing results for our customers we know that having healthy skin is about more than just applying the right products.
A holistic approach and the lifestyle elements that can affect the health of our skin isn’t something that is spoken or written about enough. We have partnered with the best in class health and wellness professionals to provide our community with information and approaches that we know can help improve skin health and overall wellness.
An Alkaline Approach to Clear, Healthy Skin
We not only believe that an alkaline based skincare is the right approach, but also that an alkaline based lifestyle is best for our overall wellness and to achieve clear, glowing skin.
An alkaline lifestyle is a holistic approach to personal wellbeing that encourages us to become aware of and keep the biochemical acid-alkaline in balance within our body. It’s a natural way of living that is essential to our total wellbeing, a healthy weight, happy, vibrant skin, good immunity and an excellent quality of life.
Caring For Different Skin Types
Skin isn't good or bad – different skin just has different needs. All skin needs some of the same stuff (cleanliness, hydration, nutrition...), but skin that's unbalanced, sensitive or reactive needs extra support to regain its equilibrium.
Nutrition for Skin Health
We are what we eat, as the saying goes, and it’s true that our diet can have an impact on our skin. Our skin cells are constantly renewing from deep within the lower layers and then pushing upwards, eliminating the old, dull, dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.
How we nourish our skin from the inside will affect the health of these new skin cells, and how well our skin regenerates itself.
Food allergies and intolerances can affect our skin, not just our guts. For example, experiencing dermatitis could be linked with an autoimmune reaction to gluten, called coeliac disease. Our guts also contain a significant proportion of our immune system - eating an unhealthy diet can cause toxins to be eliminated through our skin, causing dullness and irritation.
Carrying out a detox or food elimination diet could help us to understand how our diet might be affecting our skin, in ways we never even considered.
The Impact of Our Lifestyle on Our Skin
Not getting enough sleep can affect our skin by interrupting the time during deep sleep that our skin regenerates itself. If we lack restorative sleep, we can display the signs of premature ageing via a loss of skin plumping collagen that keeps fine lines and wrinkles at bay. We’ll also lose our glow and our skin will appear sullen and dull.
High levels of stress will also cause the skin to appear dry, sunken and starved of essential oxygen and nutrients. Stress increases the damage caused by free radicals and oxidative stress, so taking steps to reduce stress, such as practicing mindfulness meditation can help.
Alkaline skincare for the Win
Our skin is alkaline, but the majority of skin care products on the market are acidic. It makes sense to us, to put things on our skin that respect the natural balance of the skin. Hence why we developed our unique silica salt complex, that has an alkalising effect on the skin.
Sönd’s alkalising skin care products support the regeneration and healing of the skin, help to keep it hydrated and nourish it’s needs, all from within the deepest layers. The causes of skin problems such as acne, oliness, dryness, irritation, redness and inflammation are managed, resulting in clear, bright, hydrated and nourished skin.
Finding the right skin care for your skin type
The right skin care products for your skin are crucial for the health and wellbeing of your skin. After all, happy skin = happy self! But it can be a mind boggling case of overwhelm trying to cut through all the advertising and noise, to find what’s right for you.
That’s why we believe in keeping things simple. The Sönd range of cream cleansers, toners, serums and moisturisers are all based around our unique alkalising silica salts that nourish, hydrate and support from deep within the lower skin layers and is suitable for all skin types.
So why not give us a try and joining the thousands of happy customers all revolutionising their skin care regime with products that quite simply, work?
