Give Your Skin a Day Off

At Shamanuti, we make simple skincare for complicated creatures and we maintain that simplicity is the best policy to put into practice as well. In our oversubscribed world there is always a new product being heralded as the latest prescription for improvement and so it's not surprising that for so many people the refrain, particularly for trouble-prone skin, is 'What else, what else, what else? What else can I throw at the problem?' We say once you've cleansed, toned and treated, leave it alone. Excess attention can potentially confuse your skin and exacerbate the problem. In fact, the occasional day off from all products is a good idea to let your skin recalibrate and find its own center.
