  • Aurelia Probiotic Skincare - the path to clearer, healthier skin

    Here at Aurelia Probiotic Skincare we’re often asked about the causes of acne, and how some of our products can help to soothe and prevent breakouts. We wanted to focus on some tips and techniques you can use that will help to alleviate breakouts and to help you tailor your skincare routine to suit your needs.

    Why do we get acne?
    Acne and breakouts can start to affect skin from our teens onwards. Sometimes acne can begin well into adulthood and is normally caused by hormonal imbalances and changes or emotional stress. The blemishes themselves are caused by an inflammation of the sebum gland in a hair follicle and once this occurs, dead skin, oil build-up and dirt can get trapped in the pore, causing swelling, redness and sometimes a whitehead. It’s important to look for skincare products that are non-pore blocking (non-comedogenic) like the products in the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare range. The important thing about treating acne and breakouts is not to let it panic you or cause you stress. It can be difficult not to pick or squeeze blemishes but this will make them worse, or cause longer lasting scarring.

    Common mistakes
    There are a lot of ways you can help to alleviate the symptoms, but by nourishing your skin rather than drying it out, you’ll have a better chance of reducing breakouts. It is really important to keep acne prone skin clean, but the type of cleanser you are using can sometimes make things worse. A common mistake people make is to use a foaming cleanser, to get that squeaky-clean, tight feeling. However this can cause an upset in skin’s balance of natural oils. The skin’s acid mantel is integral to overall hydration, and stripping your skin using products containing harsh sulfates will make matters worse. Another common mistake is to use facial wipes which often contain methylisothiazolinone (MI), a preservative that can cause major irritation and is also used to preserve domestic cleaning products and paint! Try not to overload the skin with products, but pare your routine back and use nourishing, gentle and calming products. Sufferers of acne are often nervous of exfoliating, as damaging breakouts with abrasive scrubs can spread bacteria and lengthen the healing process. It is however very important to exfoliate acne-prone skin, and by using a gentle yet effective exfoliating mask once a week you will reduce dead skin build up and soften skin texture.

    Our recommended routine:
    Here at Aurelia we have a strict free-from ingredients policy, so you won’t find any of the harsher chemicals in our products. We advocate a twice daily cleanse with our Miracle Cleanser, a cream based, soothing product that leaves skin feeling hydrated, supple and soft, but above all clean. Containing decongesting eucalyptus and calming probiotics and chamomile, the Miracle Cleanser works well on acne-prone skin to soothe and nourish from step one. The soft antibacterial bamboo muslin is perfect for removal as it will gently buff the skin, resulting in a radiant, glowing complexion that won’t feel stripped or tight but balanced, clean and fresh.

    MiracleCleanser_OpenTop_3609

    Follow the cleanser with our Revitalise & Glow Serum in the morning for non-greasy yet nourishing hydration. The Revitalise & Glow Serum is wonderful because you will get the benefits of the hydrating peptide complex, the soothing probiotics and the antioxidant-rich botanics but in a very lightweight texture. This fluid serum absorbs very easily and deposits the luxury ingredients where they are most needed. Follow with the Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser for supple, smooth and nourished skin with an even texture. This silicone-free moisturiser creates the perfect base for makeup and contains aloe vera to soothe breakouts and vitamin E to reduce the appearance of acne scars.

    Exfoliation with the Refine & Polish Miracle Balm can be hugely beneficial for congested, acne prone and oily skins. Gentle exfoliation is key, as the build-up of dead skin leads to daily impurities and make-up settling in pores and causing breakouts or blackheads. Using the Miracle Balm twice a week as a mask will result in smoother skin to the touch, a clearer complexion and a reduction in pore size. Instead of massaging the product into the skin, press the balm over the face, avoiding the eye area and leave for 5-10 minutes to let the enzymes work. The beauty of the Miracle Balm is that it helps to rebalance the sebum levels in your skin, as it does not leave you feeling dry, tight or stripped of oils. As an oil-based texture which emulsifies on contact with water, the Refine & Polish Miracle Balm helps to alleviate the signs of dryness by addressing flakiness and leaving the skin supple. Exfoliation in this way will also increase the effectiveness of subsequent skincare products, as serums and creams can then penetrate beyond the top layer of dead skin, depositing the ingredients and probiotic technology where they are most needed.

  • International Women's Day - Make It Happen

    All around the world, International Women's Day represents an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality. Make It Happen is the 2015 theme, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognising women.

    Each year International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. The first International Women's Day was held in 1911 and since then this celebration has grown with thousands of events occurring to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.

    Claire and the Aurelia team are grateful to the women who have come before us - breaking the glass ceiling and allowing us to live in a country where we are able to be independent, opinionated, passionate and successful women!  As an all girl team we have many working mums - we have been fortunate to have had 5 Aurelia babies born in the past year alone! - who are able to balance a career and being a mum. Claire is also a passionate member and supporter of the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) and was thrilled to receive the inaugural Digital Achiever Award a few months ago at their annual Achiever Award to recognise women in the beauty industry.

    We are constantly inspired by amazing women from all walks of life, from those within the industry such as Jo Malone and Nancy Cruickshank to fantastic British women like Ellen MacArthur, Katie Piper and JK Rowling.

    On pinterest we have created a board dedicated to inspirational women. This International Women's Day we would love to hear your recommendations on women that inspire you and we will add them to our board!

    We hope you will use today to encourage you to follow your passions and dreams and Make It Happen x

  • Fairtrade Fortnight 23rd February - 8th March

    Fairtrade

    Here at Aurelia Probiotic Skincare we are celebrating the annual Fairtrade Fortnight which runs from 23rd February to 8th March this year. It’s all about raising awareness of the importance of fair trade and hearing about individuals and businesses that support the fair trade community. Over two years, we have not only provided women with revolutionary, next generation probiotic technology,
    but we also pay a fair trade price to the communities that collect and harvest our ingredients for us in remote areas. We a proud to be a skincare brand that works closely with the not-for-profit organisation Phytotrade Africa when we source our gorgeous botanicals.

    Phytotrade_Logo

    One area particularly close to us is a rural community in the Rift Valley near Lake Malawi. These people assist in the harvesting of some of our key ingredients, including Omega-rich Baobab and skin-firming Kigelia Africana. Working with Phytotrade offers the community quality of life, helping to provide additional income for food, schooling and housing. Wider benefits are also being seen in the increasing biodiversity of these regions; trees previously being cut down are now seen as valuable commodities and are being protected. The ethics behind Aurelia Probiotic Skincare are at the heart of everything we do and we are proud to contribute to this life changing process.

    ‘What other skincare brands do you know of that invests their research and sourcing to a deprived country with reassurance that those cultivating the remote ingredients reap the benefits?’ –Danielle Wood, The Huffington Post.

    Aurelia’s founder Claire Vero was privileged to meet locals on her trip to Lake Malawi on her search for the very best BioOrganic botanicals. Meeting this community and seeing first-hand what a positive effect fairtrade has on people’s lives confirms just how important raising awareness of this cause is!

  • Oscars Leading Ladies

    Once again the showcase of beautiful gowns wowed us all with some incredible actresses wearing some beautiful couture at this year’s Oscars. Our love affair with Oscars fashion only adds to the drama and excitement of the event but the real joy is seeing such acting talent and dedication to the craft celebrated globally. A huge congratulations to Julianne Moore for her Best Actress Oscar – not to mention her gorgeous Chanel! Here at Aurelia HQ we found it far too difficult to choose just one winning gown so we’ve selected a few of our personal favourite dresses from the leading ladies of Hollywood...

    oscars1 Kiera Knightley in Valentino & Julianne Moore in Chanel

    On the left, the beautiful Kiera Knightley stood out in her blush tone floral Valentino. Before Christmas the young actress announced her pregnancy and months later here she is looking fabulously elegant and the perfect English rose! Best actress Julianne Moore turned heads in her dazzling Chanel couture creation seen on the right. A dress that took more planning than the Oscars itself; the subtle drop waistline dress was handcrafted by 27 workers and took over 987 hours of sewing small white hand-painted sequins!

    Now we couldn’t go without mentioning our fellow Londoner Eddie Redmayne whose incredible performance in 'The Theory of Everything' earned him a most well deserved Best Actor award. Newlywed Eddie and his wife Hannah Bagshawe, looked the ultimate picturesque couple on the red carpet together, both wearing Alexander McQueen.

    For an Oscar-worthy glow and healthy, nourished skin make sure you are starting your routine with our creamy, effective Miracle Cleanser and follow with our Refine & Polish Miracle Balm. Your skin will be supple, extremely soft and radiant with any make-up sitting beautifully to enhance, not cover. At the end of the night, why not indulge in a Cell Revitalise Rose Mask to bring your skin to life, calm, soothe and hydrate.

  • That 70s Show - Hot trends for next season

    London Fashion Week and the Oscars in the same weekend… If you haven’t managed to catch up with the latest beauty trends from two of the biggest events of the year, then don’t worry, the Aurelia Team are here to assist you in creating those effortless looks with the latest trends fresh from the catwalk.

    70s 1 Bold seventies-inspired designs at Jonathan Saunders A/W15

    The seventies style of sheepskin and suede dominated the London streets and shows. We were transported back in time when Jonathan Saunders A/W15 collection hit the run way on Sunday. It was all about printed knits and colour blocking that captured everyone’s attention that afternoon.

    There’s no doubt that we’re all experiencing a chill this winter and here at Aurelia we are desperate for the cosy, feminine faux furs and gorgeous florals seen paired together at Topshop Unique’s show. It’s such a shame we have to wait until autumn this year!

    70s 2 We love the faux fur on show at Tophop Unique A/W15

    With the vibrant seventies styles on show, the beauty trends were kept simple enough to create at home. Minimal is hot on the catwalk this season so keep your skin fresh and combine with a dark, bold lipstick for maximum impact.

    70s 5 More faux fur and stunning bold lips at the Shrimps presentation A/W15
    70s 3 Achieve fresh, hydrated skin as seen on models at Julien Macdonald's show
    cropped Apply a couple of drops of our Revitalise & Glow Serum onto cleansed skin for soft, smooth hydrated skin

    If you’re after this barely-there makeup look, you can create soft, radiant skin with our Revitalise & Glow Serum. When mixed with foundation or tinted moisturiser it creates a non-sticky surface with added beauty boost and quick hydration. Even, hydrated skin creates the perfect canvas for a vibrant lip colour to shine and allows this effortless look to stay with you all day long.
