Looks aren’t everything, but when you look your healthiest, you often feel it too.
We all feel more confident when we have fresh, clear skin, but sometimes the environment acts upon us, causing unwanted blemishes on our most visible canvas.
Whether your skin has issues due to genetics or the environment, many of us experience some common problems that could be eased with a little TLC from Mother Nature.
Cherish has a range of products, all naturally derived ingredients harvested from and made by hand in Australia, that will help soothe and ease many of our common skin struggles. All our ingredients are sustainably farmed in Australia and hand-made in small batches to ensure quality and consistency.
The unique blend of ingredients in Cherish products work together, almost like magic, to give you and your skin the best nutrients and care it needs. We’ll explain more about these wonder-ingredients, the science behind them, and how they can help you face your day with clarity.
1. Acne & Clogged Pores
It’s a common misconception that acne is a teenage problem. Many people have acne that follows them well into their 30’s. Breakouts could be caused by hormones or by the products and makeup you’re using on your face.
One way to combat acne and clogged pores is to detoxify with a mask.
pink clay mask
Australian Pink clay is known as the most gentle of all clay. Unlike green clay, for instance, it won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. It will still detoxify and tighten so its ideal for those with sensitive skin. You can use it even on dry skin.
It also contains soothing aloe and essential oils to help brighten your complexion. This mask assists acne and blackhead removal by tightening skin pores and extracting pollutants from the surface.

2. General Build-Up
Pollutants can attach to make-up during the day. Always, always, always cleanse your skin before bed. Nighttime is when the skin rejuvenates, and you don’t want to block that process by going to sleep with your makeup on.
The solution is finding a cleanser that removes daily pollutants without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Our Cherish gentle cleanser contains organic rose-hip oil. Rich in vitamin A, rose-hip oil helps skin regenerate and penetrates to boost collagen. This wonder ingredient is excellent for anti-aging, reducing fine lines and improving moisture. Soothing Cucumber and aloe will allow skin to heal from any daily stresses.
Other gorgeous essential oils like lavender, orange, rosemary, lime and cedar all antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial which smell divine and help you relax before sleep.

3. Dry skin
Giving your skin the correct balance of moisture it needs can be tricky. It seems counter-intuitive, but dry skin only needs a light lotion that absorbs into the skin quickly and effectively.
Our Cherish Light Lotion is a dual-action moisturiser that not only hydrates but helps dissolve dead skin cells with White Willow Bark. It leaves the skin decongested, fresh and smooth.
Other magical ingredients include; green tea which helps prevent acne and is anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, pineapple extract which contains vitamin C and smells like a beach holiday, and Quandong which is collagen producing, brightening and reduces fine lines.

This is a common problem, and it can flare up anytime the body’s immune system is compromised. Even mental or environmental stress can cause blood vessels to widen, causing redness.
Calm inflammation or simply prepare your skin for moisturiser. This silky serum is enriched with Aloe Vera and uses Papaya, an all-around hydrator, soother and rejuvenator.
If you’ve never used a serum before, give this one a try, and you’ll never use anything else. They are so handy for delivering antioxidants to your skin while evening out tone and reducing any inflammation, wrinkles, and pigmentation.

5. Dull complexion
This happens when there is a buildup of dead skin cells. A toner can help even out the skin’s natural pH balance, also hydrate, revitalise or soothe a dull surface.
An additional toner benefit is that it also helps the skin absorb beneficial ingredients in your other skincare products. Our Cherish toning mist is ideal for use on freshly cleansed skin, or any time you want that feeling of a freshly washed face. Organic Kakadu Plum works in this mist to give your skin a natural glow and protects your skin from free radicals. This product is so versatile you can even use it over makeup for a dewy glow.
