The Importance of Soaking

The Importance of Soaking.

Our skin care range Janesce is an Australian Plant Based product that delivers amazing results. One of the differences with Janesce are our Soaking Drops.

Soaking Drops are soothing essences in a concentrated water-soluble form. Added to warm water, this stimulating blend of plant essences hydrates and treats the skin. Soaking offers a gentle cleanse while increasing the skins ability to absorb beneficial plant actives by up to 50%.

We recommend to soak 2x a day morning and night and you will see the difference within your skin.
They come in Lavender, Rose, Soothing & Refreshing RRP $35soaking drops


What Is Your Zinc Status?

What is your zinc status?

Zinc is an important mineral that plays a crucial part in skin health and preventing premature skin ageing.  It is vital that we address our zinc levels because even moderate deficiencies in zinc cause wrinkling and stretch marks. Statistics tell us that 1 in 4 New Zealanders are zinc deficient, however when testing clients we have found 9 out of 10 have some level of deficiency. A zinc test is a quick and easy taste test you can do that will give an indication of your zinc status in just 10 seconds. Our new supplement Bestow Beauty from Beneath is an ideal way to correct this over time as it contains high levels of zinc in two different forms for maximum absorption.

Janesce Suncare Lotion Special

Start preparing your skin for Spring with Janesce Suncare Lotion $53.00

The Suncare lotion was recently put through its paces in China and the results showed that even with one application the Suncare Lotion had an immediate SPF of 15.  As you may know, the Suncare Lotion’s effectiveness increases over 7 to 10 days of continuous use so we can only assume this figure also increases over this period.001


Why Treat Your Skin From Within



There are many things that we eat and drink that can contribute to the problems we can experience with our skin. Being aware of these problem foods can go a long way to helping correct these issues. Some of these problems foods are obvious like alcohol. You just need observe what happens to someone with fine, fair, sensitive skin who drinks wine to know that it is inflammatory and could make skin redness worse. But there are lots of other ‘hidden’ foods that could be ‘fueling’ the problems you may be experiencing with your skin.

However more and more of our commonly eaten foods are managing to find their way onto the growing list of foods that contain phyto-chemicals that keep our skin looking beautiful.

When it comes to nutrition, out of all the foods researched for skin benefits the Essential Fatty Acids appear to be the ‘stars’ offering assistance in the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions as well as generally improving skin’s hydration and beauty.

Essential fatty acids are a wonderful food for skin. They are your edible cosmetics, making your skin soft, smooth and velvety. This is why the first product I ever formulated was the Bestow Beauty Oil. It is your ‘moisturiser from the inside’, reducing inflammation and redness, while keeping your skin smooth and free of blockages.

The Bestow Within – Natural Food Journal is packed full of recipes that supply essential fatty acids and other nutrients to bestow you with beautiful, radiant skin…

Janesce Suncare Lotion



The Janesce Suncare Lotion is an amazing product and would have to be one of my favourites in this beautiful skincare range.  It is rather difficult to explain how it works and why it differs from other methods of sun protection but I will attempt to do so.

UV is a source of free radicals that damage our skin, prematurely ageing it and causing all sorts of imperfections.  However, like all free radicals they are able to be neutralised by antioxidants and this is how the Janesce Suncare Lotion works.  Rich in betacarotene and vitamin C, this product saturates the upper layers of our skin with these powerful antioxidants, a process that takes 7 to 10 days.  Over this time the antioxidants it contains are stored in the tiny spaces between the layers of skin cells in the outer most stratum of the skin.  This stratum contains between 20 to 30 layers of cells and each layer becomes an antioxidant-filled barrier, capable of reducing the negative effects of the sun and greatly improving our skin’s ability to cope.
All this activity is cumulative and it takes 7 to 10 days for the skin to be fully prepared. Because the SPF rating used in other chemical barriers must offer immediate protection, the SPF rating system does not work for the Janesce Suncare Lotion. Instead, your skin is in a constant state of protection provided it is used daily.

Another thing I love about this product is that, unlike conventional sunscreens, it does not interfere with the natural protective mechanisms your skin already has in place to protect itself.  One of these mechanisms is the production of melanin, a dark pigment that forms a tan, the Janesce Suncare Lotion won’t suppress this process because it is an important part of your natural sun resilience.  The Janesce Suncare lotion also allows our skin to keep producing vitamin D unlike many sun blocks available on the market.

I believe the Janesce Suncare Lotion is a ‘must have’ product all year round as it offers a completely different, non-chemical approach to sun protection that also allows the skin to carry on it’s normal functioning.  If you are going to be exposed to high levels of UV radiation, by all means boost your protection by adding a chemical sun block but for most days of normal sun exposure, the Suncare Lotion is enough.  But remember, it must be used everyday to be effective because everyday you skip will have repercussions 7 to 10 days later.
