To inspire you to upgrade your skincare in 2018, we’d like to share a few cool and simple ways in which you can take better care of your skin. It won’t be difficult OR ridiculously expensive, we promise.

Eat the rainbow & stay hydrated
Happy-looking skin starts from the inside out. You have to feed your body the things it needs to regenerate and keep those skin cells looking plump, hydrated and glowing. This includes things like Omega 3 fatty acids stores that need to be replenished frequently because your body doesn’t have the capacity to store it; as well as vitamins A, B, C, D and the whole gamut of minerals from zinc to magnesium. Oh, and water, you guys! To flush out the nasties and keep your cheeks all dew-dappled and rosy. Happy body = sexy skin.

Update your skincare stuff
In the new year, get rid of those half-blunt razors, old makeup brushes and manky-looking sponges that form part of your skincare arsenal. Your skin deserves better than that, and an artisan is always only as good as his or her tools.

TOP TIP: The most versatile, least expensive beauty aid you’ll ever own is a good, old-fashioned face cloth. The rough texture cleans your face of all the grime that gathers on the surface throughout the course of the day and it gives you a manual exfoliation too boot.

Support a local brand
When you buy from a local brand like Katavi, you immediately contribute to the reduction of the carbon footprint of your skincare product since it didn’t have to be shipped or flown in. Additionally, you are directly contributing to the economic development of the communities that grow and harvest the natural products we use in the preparation of our products. You can also rest assured that your skin is getting the very best. Good vibes all around!
