Skincare in the summer can be demanding, particularly for city dwellers. The varying weather, pollution, UV exposure, temperature fluctuations from inside to outdoors and the underground, can cause an imbalance in our skin. NAOBAY Equilibria Antioxidant range can help balance skin from the outside in. There is a three step regime:
Step 1: Cleansing. It is important to thoroughly wash your face and remove all traces of oil, dirt, make-up, dead skin cells, sunscreen and everyday pollutants from the environment that settle throughout the day on the facial skin. Cleansing also helps to prevent clogged pores, which in turn reduces the likelihood of developing breakouts. Finally, cleansing your face helps to prepare the skin to absorb the products that you plan to apply, as a toner or a moisturiser.
Equilibria Gel to Milk Cleanser: a translucent gel cleanser that changes into a light cleansing milk upon contact with water, this cleanser softens and cleanses the skin while organic oils, including olive and sweet almond, work to moisturise and encourage natural cell turnover. Apricot oil boasts soothing properties and great regenerating power for dull and tired skin types, or after a period of stress.
Beauty Tip: use Equilibria Gel to Milk Cleanser with a dampened cotton pad to remove eye makeup.
Step 2: Toning.Toner removes residues, such as chlorine and minerals of tap water when used after cleansing and also balances the pH and removes residual oils. The toner can give your skin a healthy dose of what it needs to look younger, fresher, and smoother throughout the day.
Equilibria Face Mist Toner: featuring organic aloe vera, calendula and chamomile, this toner can provide truly amazing benefits for your skin, balancing, refreshing and softening the skin. This toner also cleanses and moisturises, and is suitable for face, eye contour and neck.
Beauty Tip: Equilibria Face Mist Toner can be applied with a cotton pad using small circular motions to remove extra dirt, and thanks to the spray can be used on the spot as a skin refresher throughout the day.
Step 3: Moisturising. Hydration is what enables skin to function at peak performance, with huge anti-ageing advantages. Studies have shown that people who use moisturizer develop wrinkles at a fraction of the rate of those with dry skin. Your skin needs to be clean in order to be replenished with moisture. Otherwise, it begin to overproduce oil and clog your pores, which in turn will lead to break-outs.
Equilibria Balancing Cream:specially designed to balance facial skin, with cinnamon, organic calendula and aloe vera extracts to improve and repair skin, soften and energise, smooth texture and fight ageing. Organic evening primrose oil rich in essential fatty acids promotes skin regeneration and stimulates micro circulation.

We’re not talking about your hair being CLEAN, more the products that you use to get there! The Clean Beauty movement is getting bigger and bigger, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2017. Consumers are becoming more savvy to greenwashing, starting to question just what’s in those expensive beauty products they are putting on their bodies and seeking out really natural alternatives.
This is where Saach Organics comes in. Hair care with its roots firmly in Ayurveda. Products that are truly natural, using the finest quality oils and herbal extracts to create safe and clean beauty products. Even their hair dyes are 100% natural, something other brands on the market allude to but even these still have questionable chemicals in them!
Here’s what your routine would look like……
Step 1 To be completed at least once a week, going up to three times a week. Apply Saach Organics Gooseberry Herbal Hair Oil (£12.90 100ml) to scalp and lengths of hair, massaging thoroughly. Leave on overnight for optimum effectiveness. This blend is a stimulating oil formulated to boost blood circulation and delivery of nutrients to the scalp via opening up blocked capillaries. With use, hair is revitalised, and lost colour and strength replenished.
Ingredients: Sunflower Oil processed with Indian Gooseberry, Acacia Concinna, Cypriol, Madder, Basil, Red Sandalwood, Hibiscus, Henna, Rose, Musk Root, Bacopa and Eclipta alba, Cotton Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil and Almond Oil
Free from: Parabens, Formaldehyde, Sulphates and Petrochemicals
Step 2 Choose the Saach Organics Shampoo (£10.95 200ml) that is right for you. The team’s personal favourite here is the Basil, Hibiscus & Peppermint Shampoo, designed to strengthen hair, but you also have the following to choose from
● Dandruff Control Shampoo – A breakthrough anti-dandruff formula that strengthens hair roots, and fights dandruff with Tea Tree Oil and Rosemary Oil and relieves irritated scalps with Lemon Extract.
● Colour Protect Shampoo – Protect coloured hair with this Ayurvedic combination of Henna and Orange Oil to restore and revitalise both hair and colour.
● Damage Repair Shampoo – This Ayurvedic formula helps restructure damaged hair, providing needed moisture and nourishment. Safe for radically coloured and permed hair.
To use shake the bottle before use then squeeze a small amount out. Apply on hair and scalp to work up a lather. Rinse well with warm water. The formula is gentle enough to use every day.
Step 3 Finish with Saach Organics Hair Nourishment Conditioner (£9.95 200ml). Help your hair achieve its top condition with this unique formula enriched with the natural goodness of Hibiscus and Henna, essential oils of Primrose and Almond to improve hair health from root to tip.
Beauty Tip – When applying the conditioner, focus on the ends of your hair, apply to the roots very sparingly – due to the nature of our hair and thanks to the oil treatment you don’t really need to use conditioner here. Leave on for two minutes then rinse thoroughly with warm water, combing through your hair from root to tip. Finish with a blast of cool water to seal cuticle and invigorate.
There are many hair dye brands on the market, and in recent years we’ve seen an influx of more natural offerings. However, up until this point there has not been a 100% natural colour system that offers a wide selection of colours and is easy to use. Even some of the “natural” hair dyes contain questionable chemicals, it figures when you think about it. To change the colour of something (your hair) permanently, or even semi-permanently, it is likely you need something stronger (chemicals) to make that change.
Not so with Saach Organics! Their hair dyes (75g £10.95) are 100% natural, derived from plants and minerals, making it a perfect blend of rare hair treatment herbs without any active chemicals. They are the first semi–permanent hair colour treatment that lasts. The natural colourant system balances and nourishes each and every hair, prevents breakage and over-drying, and leaves hair thick, lustrous and naturally healthy.Available in an impressive selection of colours: soft black, rose brown, dark brown, medium brown, light brown and blonde. For best results choose colour closest to your own hair colour. Since these are natural products, results may vary as the products are hand-blended in small batches and natural ingredients can also vary from harvest to harvest.
As well as the colourant, Saach Organics hair colourants contain everything you need to apply your hair colour without any hiccups: gloves, hair cap and applicator brush, plus an application of their Natural Colour Protect Shampoo, to help lock in the colour and promote a healthy shine.
The hair colourants contain blends of herbs including henna, indigo, acacia, gooseberry and other indian herbs, and are alway free from: parabens, para-phenylenediamine (PPD), ammonia and peroxides.
Also Available in the collection are:
Saach Organics Herbal Henna Powder (75g £8.95) A powerful and natural blend of handpicked henna and other precious mother herbs to condition and strengthen the hair and scalp. Helps to control dandruff and hair loss. Providing natural colour and shine, whilst restoring the natural health and full body of hair.
Saach Organics Hair Care Management – Herbal Hair Powder (75g £10.95) A unique non-colouring, herb-enriched formula for strengthening and conditioning hair, controlling hair loss, preventing premature greying of hair and providing dandruff control. A great product for infusing all that’s natural back into your hair.
Winter can be a stressful time for our skin. The colder weather has a number of effects on our skin –
It makes our blood vessels dilate, causing redness of the skin.
Because humidity is generally lower in the winter it means there is less water in the air, and this dries out our skin and hair.
Cold winds and central heating also have the same effect, which leaves skin and hair in need of some extra nourishment and moisturisation.
Our skin can become dehydrated if we’re not taking on board enough fluid to keep skin hydrated on the inside. Whilst other experts may disagree with this statement, I’m a firm
believer that taking on board fluids does improve the appearance of skin as well as how it feels inside (no tightness.)
Here are our top tips to help you have your best skin yet this winter, some of which you may not have thought about –
Only have the central heating on if you really have to. Put another jumper on and keep the thermostat down low or on a time for the very few hours in the day when you really need the home heated.
Use a humidifier to keep moisture in the air. This will help keep moisture in your skin from escaping into the atmosphere.
Invest in supplements. If your skin is drier than it should be, the chances are you are deficient in one or more of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Potassium or Essential Fatty Acids, so it may be wise to invest in a decent multivitamin.
Use a face mask to deeply hydrate the skin. rather than harsh or stripping treatments. Do not have super hot baths as these really dry your whole body out.
Last but by no means least, make sure your daily skincare regimen is suite to your skin, and invest in heavy duty skincare to see your skin through the cold winter days. Here are our top picks from the NAOBAY collection for this:
