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.
That’s why we developed the Sönd alkalising skincare range, because we quite simply couldn’t find any other skincare brands or products that were natural, and that worked to keep our oily, acne prone skin in check.
Since launching with our back to basics skincare of cream cleanser, day moisturiser, night moisturiser and supplements, we’ve had so much success and positive feedback from skin happy customers, that we’ve also launched a toner, serum and face mask - with more on the way.
Our products work at a cellular level to support the needs of all skin types, but how do we do that?
Well, it’s all in the power of alkalinity...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
