    Moisturising vs Hydrating - what's the difference anyway?
    Posted on

    The eyes have it – wonderful cucumber!
    Posted on
    Known for centuries to reduce eye puffiness, cucumber has so many health benefits for both skin and body. Let’s explore some of those benefits. Cucumis Sativus – the humble cucumber.

    While most of us may be able to imagine a day when we can look at ourselves in the mirror and proudly see our ‘happy lines’ as a reflection of a life filled with love and laughter, few of us want to exclaim “oh those deep furrows, wrinkles and sagging skin!” Let’s face it – there are lines […]

    Manage eczema and psoriasis naturally

    No, this is not just a pretty flower I picked from my garden. It is Calendula officinalis, or the humble marigold. In the garden its bright and summery and pretty, but on your skin, it is a mircle healer. Eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis (with which I myself suffer), are some of the most common skin conditions in the world, […]

    How Effective is Natural Sun Protection, really?

    How Effective is Natural Sun Protection, really?
    Posted on
    In the almost four years since starting Rubifresh natural skincare, I have found that although there is a great interest in the idea of a natural sun screen, many Australians are sceptical about whether a natural product would be effective for our outdoors lifestyle in the intense Australian sun. The evidence seems conflicting, but like […]

    Fresh is Best

    Fresh is Best
    Posted on
    Just as fresh food is best for our bodies, so too are fresh ingredients best for our skin. But WHY? It is fairly well known that the fresher we eat our food (especially vitamin and mineral packed fruit & veg), the bigger the dose of those vits & minerals our bodies receive, and the better […]

    BASIC POST-WORKOUT SKINCARE ROUTINES
    Posted on
    If exercise is good for us, we would assume it is good for our skin. However, if we do not replenish our skin post-exercise we risk minimising the effect of our exercise, and causing skin problems that could be prevented. With a few basic steps after our workout, we can ensure we match our skin-health […]

    OK, I must admit to drawing the line on healthy skin WAY before colonics! Call me a prude, call me scared….call me what you will, but don’t call me to book me in for a colonic! However, there is a school of thought about the healthy skin benefits of colonics. So read on….taken directly from […]

    Slowing down the aging process with antioxidants
    Posted on
    We’ve probably all heard of free radicals and their harmful effects on the body’s aging process, but what does it really mean and how can we prevent the damage? Free radicals are damaged cells which are released when oxygen is processed by the body in the natural process called oxidation (the same occurs when you […]

    Terrific Tea Tree
    Posted on
    Tea Tree oil has long been used as a natural antiseptic, but is gathering interest due to some new research that highlights additional benefits. Pure tea tree oil comes from the leaves of the tea tree plant (not the tea plant…though it was used by 18th century sailors to make tea that smelled like nutmeg). […]

Oats and oatmeal are soothing to all skin types, and will settle most skin irritations. The goodness penetrates deeply into pores, cleansing excessive cell build up and clogged pores.
