Post-Holiday Skin Care Tips

Who doesn’t love the endless festivities, food, and family time? Unfortunately, come January, your skin can start to feel (and look) a bit less than radiant. Below we share how you can get things back on track and get your skin back to its former glory!

Step 1: Gentle Deep Face Wash

After a holiday season, your skin needs a deep cleaning—and I am not talking about a quick wash with your go-to face cleanser. You need to upgrade your face wash to get an extra deep but gentle cleansing.

You can grab a face brush to have deep face wash.  However if you have sensitive skin, you would prefer to a gentler face brush, like Kathleen Natural’s advanced Facial Sonic Cleansing Device.  This Device has combined the sonic pulsations with an innovative gentle silicone brush design for a deeper and gentler cleansing. The sonic pulsation can channel through hundreds silicon touch-points to remove blemish-causing impurities and dirt, leaving the skin clearer and lighter without harsh abrasion.

Step 2: Face Mask

Applying a good face mask will leave you feeling pampered, like you are at a spa – a spa at home. At the same time, the face mask helps not only hydrate skin; choosing the right face mask can also tighten, tone and detoxify skin, and help to improve the appearance of your pore and skin texture.

Kathleen Natural brings you our new and exciting range of face masks – Bright Mask, Collagen Mask, Deep Pore Treatment Mask and Dead See Mud Clay Mask. They are all clay masks and help to rid your skin of dirt, dust, oil and pollution. If your skin is feeling dull and tired, try the Bright Mask which is formulated with White Willow Bark and Hibiscus Extracts to gently peel your skin.  If you want to stimulate collagen production, try the Collagen Mask which is infused with Retinol that can ‘tell’ your skin cell to behave like younger cells. If you have blackheads and breakouts, try Deep Pore Treatment Mask which is formulated with Cucumber and Tea Tree Oil to calm and reduce inflammation. If your skin needs to promote a healthy balance of oils, try the Dead Sea Mud Clay Mask to strengthen the skin cell membrane. All our face masks can also act as a therapeutic aromatherapy product to soothe and relax your mood and mind.

Step 3: Hydration, Hydration and Hydration

Staying hydrated and taking on water is a fundamental post-holiday skin care tip. You should look to intake two litres of water a day to maintain your healthy body.  Researchers told us that drinking a good amount of water could help to avoid heat exhaustion and also heatstroke. I can list here a lot of the benefits of drinking water, like helping to flush out toxins, maintaining optimum organ function, relieving symptoms of heat exposure.  I want you to remember that drinking water is not only good for your skin, and also are important for your health!

If you want to speed up you healing process of your skin, you can add one of the most treasured skin care products – Serum. They are easy to apply and deliver tremendous results. No quality skin care routine would ever be complete without a facial serum.

Kathleen Natural brings you three different Serum to care your every needs. If you want adding extra moisture for your skin, try Silk Miracle Essence which is infused with Aloe Vera, Marine Collagen to promote silky smooth skin.  If you want brightening the skin, try our Illuminating Serum which has got 12 potent, natural actives, like strawberry and papaya extracts.  If you are looking for a serum to keep you aging gracefully, try our Anti-Aging Serum which is formulated with natural “power house” coenzyme Q10.

Step 4: Soak

I really noticed that it is likely a soak in a warm bath is not going to make your skin look different. But it really can help to chill out after the stressful day. Everyone needs a pampering night!

Head to our website, grab our all natural aromatherapy body and bath products to enhance your bath and shower experience. Remember to apply a few drops of our Body and Massage oil into the palm of your hand after bathing, inhale the beautiful scents and massage into wet skin immediately after a bath, then gently pat dry your skin with a towel.  You will feel a renewal of your spirit and mind.

Citrus Cheer Duo – it enhances the feeling of intense citrus brightness.

Tranquil Fields Duo – it brings you a sense of calm and inner peace.

Sensual Rose Duo – it enhances the feeling of joy and positivity.

Step 5: Exercise

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, moderate exercise can improve our circulation which in turn can help to give your skin a more youthful appearance. If the gyms are obviously packed this time of year, why not break a sweat at home?

I found below from NHS website. 20-minute equipment-free workouts (including warm-up and cool-down) are just what you need. I think it is very cool.

There are 6 workouts, 1 for every day of the week if you include a rest day, each working on a different area of your fitness.

Try to do 1 of these routines daily to improve your general health and strengthen and tone different muscle groups. The workouts can also be bolted on to your regular workout sessions if you want to tone your abs, legs, triceps or buttocks.

6-minute pre-exercise warm-up

Warm up and stretch properly before exercising to prevent injury and make your workouts more effective. This warm-up and stretching routine should take about 6 minutes.

10-minute cardio workout

Exercise your heart and lungs with this 10-minute cardio workout routine for aerobic fitness. If you have a skipping rope, replace any of the exercises with a 60-second burst of skipping.

10-minute toning workout

Firm up your bum, abs, legs and arms with this 10-minute toning workout. You will need a resistance band for some of the exercises but if you don’t have one, you can use water bottles.

10-minute legs, bums and tums workout

Tone up, firm up and burn fat from your tummy, hips, thighs and bottom with this 10-minute workout for legs, bums and tums.

10-minute abs workout

Tone your tummy muscles and get a flat stomach with this 10-minute abs workout. These abdominal exercises strengthen the muscles around your trunk.

10-minute firm butt workout

Lose the droopy booty and get the perfectly toned posterior with this 10-minute firm butt workout. These exercises strengthen your buttocks, thighs and back.

10-minute upper arms blaster

Banish those flabby upper arms for good with this 10-minute upper arm workout. These arm-strengthening exercises tone your triceps, the muscle above your elbow.

5-minute cool-down routine

Stretch and cool down after exercising to relax, improve flexibility and slow your heart rate. This cool-down routine should take about 5 minutes.

Wish you all have growing and beautiful skin!

Easter Party, Spring Fairy Party, Birthday Party,Topical Party and Wedding Party are coming…

No matter whether you’re guests, hostess, brides, sisters, closest friends or family members, it’s now the perfect time to invest in new skincare – way to come out of the fresh-faced.

It’s no secret that the best skincare products are ingredient focused which is why I only purchase skincare products that use organic and natural ingredients, excluding nasty chemicals, like PEG, parabens, etc.  Because that is what I put on my skin and it is what gets absorbed into my body. We don’t eat chemicals into our body so why should we even consider placing them on our skin? Nowadays naturally occurring essential fatty acids, minerals, vitamins and other skin ingredients are assimilated easily and quickly by the skin than artificial chemical.  If you’re interested in this topic, you might also like to read Have you ever questioned yourself why natural skin care products are better than synthetic skin care products?


The best party prep skincare product that I recommend is Kathleen Natural’s Amazing White Illuminating Serum. This beautiful serum has just been featured in the latest May/June Issue of the Brides

Magazine (cover picture of this post) ‘Made up of over 12 high-grade botanical extracts, designed to help promote your complexion to look more radiant and bright’.  

Contains over 12 natural skinfood which specifically help skin look more radiant and bright. The enriched organic extracts provide intense hydration and reduce the appearance of dark spots, evens ton and makes your skin feels silky smooth. Actives: Cranberry extract, Wheat germ allantoin, Liquorice extract, Strawberry extract, Papaya extract, Lemon extract, Silk peptide, Apricot oil, Sunflower oil, Natural hyaluronic acid, Oliver oil, Shea butter.


£ 62.40/ 50ml

I love what Fiona Klonarides, the Founder of The Beauty Shortlist Awards said to us: ‘If you love a product that delivers quick results, this one worked surprisingly fast when we tested it. It’s got 12 potent, natural actives including brightening papaya and strawberry, anti-inflammatory skin calmer liquorice and protective cranberry and because the main moisturisers here include hyaluronic acid and quick-absorbing apricot oil, it almost immediately soothes redness while continuing to promote brighter, far more even skin tone over time.”  

This bottle is packed with high-concentrated actives, so I only use a pea size for my face and neck. And it lasted for more than 3 months!


If you have very oily skin and want an alternative to a moisturising cream, I recommend you to take Kathleen Natural’s Silk Miracle Essence.

100 of the Best Natural Anti-Agers

What a surprise?  Kathleen Natural Caviar Enrich Eye Cream was selected as one of the 100 best natural anti-agers this year by Natural Health Magazine.

Natural Health Magazine is one of my favorite magazines that covers all the areas I needed to keep my life in balance. It is nothing else on the market for health conscious people providing unique guide from yoga, aromatherapy, reflexology, stress reducing, acupuncutre, spa retreats, organic beauty, complementary & alternative therapy to healing food.

I consider beauty as an art aiming woman to live happily and healthily.

The key for me is keeping it simple but intelligent, with an emphasis on the best natural skin care rather than make-up.  I do not need a confusing wide product range, but versatile and hyperallergic products. I cleanse my face with Cleansing Lotion with the hot muslin cloth to start my day.      I follow to spritz my Tonifying Mist before using a serum.

I change my serum depending on the year and what my skin is crying out for. Sometimes it needs hydrating, I use Silk Miracle Essence; other times it’s in need of a brightening boost, I use Kathleen Natural award-winning Illuminating Serum in the morning.

After a long, hard day, it’s important to arrange a mini spa to treat myself.  Your mind and body will thank you.  I will use Kathleen Natural Facial Sonic Cleansing Device to massage and clean my face when I have a hot tub bathe.  I find it is so relax and lovely to wind down all the stresses of everyday life.

I personally use Anti-Aging Serum at night for rejuvenating the skin, but come winter, as a person with dry skin, I really like to add a layer of Silk Miracle Essence before Anti-Aging Serum as the central heating produces a dry atmosphere.

Today, a myth is that eye creams are a controversial product, and you don’t need one until you start noticing dark circles or fine lines.  But the fact is it is much easier to avoid the damage than it is to reverse it.  Experts advise using an eye cream as early as age 25.  I choose to use eye creams in the age of 28.  What is your choice?

“The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes.” Audrey Hepburn.

“The eyes are the window to your soul.” William Shakespeare.

One of the ingredients I love for this eye cream is  Ginseng Root is considered to be one of the most precious plants in Asia and is traditionally used as an herbal medicine in Korea, Japan, India and China for thousands of years.  Ream more:

Will you be my Valentine?

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on 14th February. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.



February has long been celebrated as a month of romance, and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. The history of Valentine’s Day goes all the way back to Ancient Rome, Lupercalia festival, between the 13th and 15th February, for its archaic rite connected to fertility. Lupercalia was a festival local to the city of Rome, a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.

Romantic Connection:  In the ancient Athenian calendar the period between mid-January and mid-February was the month of Gamelion, dedicated to the sacred marriage of Zeus and Hera. Lupercalia survived the initial rise of Christianity, but was outlawed, as it was deemed when Pope Gelasius declared 14th February St. Valentine’s Day in an effort to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. It was not until much later, however, that the day became definitively associated with love. During the Middle Ages, it was commonly believed in France and England that 14th February was the beginning of birds’ mating season, which added to the idea that the middle of Valentine’s Day should be a day for romance. The oldest known valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London, which commences:

“Je suis desja d’amour tanné
Ma tres doulce Valentinée…”

— Charles d’Orléans, Rondeau VI, lines 1–2


As the years went on, the holiday became sweeter, with William Shakespeare and Chaucer romanticizing it in their work.

Valentine’s Day is mentioned ruefully by Ophelia in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, around 1600–1601

“To-morrow is Saint Valentine’s day,
All in the morning betime,
And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine.
Then up he rose, and donn’d his clothes,
And dupp’d the chamber-door;
Let in the maid, that out a maid
Never departed more.” 

— William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act IV, Scene 5


Handmade paper cards became the tokens of the day.

Esther Howland Valentine, circa 1850: “Weddings now are all the go, Will you marry me or no”?


Valentine’s Poem

“I love you for a life time

Not only for a day

I love you for who you are,

not what you do or say.”

– Belinda Galea



Put your heart into your Valentine!

This is the time for the best you have to offer!

In Great Britain, Valentine’s Day began to be popularly celebrated around the 17th century. By the middle of the 18th, it was common for friends and lovers of all social classes to exchange small tokens of affection or handwritten notes, and by 1900 printed cards began to replace written letters due to improvements in printing technology.
