With wedding season well and truly here, we sat down with four Pai staffers who have recently tied the knot, to ask them their tips and tricks for that all-important wedding skincare prep.

First up, Gemma our Business Development Manager U.S.

Before your wedding, how did you prep?

Skin laundry treatments in the week before the wedding (soft laser and light treatment). Lots of Pai Exfoliator, and mask treatments ‚Äď I used to use the Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask followed by the Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil which works so well!

I also changed my diet to plant-based vegan shortly before the wedding (which I have stuck to), but it definitely helped me feel much better in my health and in my skin.

What was your favourite Pai product that you used either before or on the day?

Easy, the Rosehip Oil, for a beautiful colour and glow!

Meet Amy, our Communications & Connections Manager

Before your wedding, how did you prep?

Fortuitously I joined Pai four months before I got married, so I had plenty of great advice and products for my pre-wedding prep. The main thing I did was to cut back massively on the number of products I was using. It can be really tempting to overload on everything that sounds like it’s going to give you a glowing bridal complexion, but actually, my skin didn’t know what to do with most of what I was using before I started at Pai.

I went back to basics and kept to a pretty strict routine using the Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser, Rice Plant & Rosemary BioAffinity Tonic, Copaiba & Zinc Perfect Balance Serum (in my blemish-prone areas) and the Geranium & Thistle Balancing Day Cream.

I also used the Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil every night, the Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator once a week, and the Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask once a week.

Favourite Pai product that you used on the day?

The Geranium & Thistle Balancing Day Cream is the perfect under-makeup moisturiser. It gives such an even finish, and acts as a great primer – so my foundation didn’t stick or clump to any dry areas.

 

Lizzie is our Regulatory Officer

Before your wedding, how did you prep?

If I’m honest I ended up being so busy during the run-up to the wedding (what with having just started a new job, moving house the week before the wedding and pretty much living on a construction site), that I didn’t get to do half of the things I had planned to do, sleep being one of them!

My advice…give yourself a break because perfect doesn’t exist anyway. Plus if you have reactive skin like I do, now isn’t the time to start trying every new lotion and potion. Guaranteed it will end in blotchy skin sad times. Know your triggers, check the ingredients list and DON’T buy it if you know it won’t suit your skin. It sounds so obvious but I know what it’s like when a product has rave reviews and you just really hope that this time it will be different. Nope, it won’t, sorry ūüôā

Be kind to yourself, get lots of sleep and invest in things that WILL make a difference to YOUR skin. Even if it’s products you’ve used for years, if it works, it works!

And which Pai product did you use on the day?

I found the Kukui & Jojoba Bead Exfoliator really helped create that fresh glowy skin look. I have combination skin that loves to confuse me with oily patches and dry patches at the same time. I find that the exfoliator is great at helping to balance this out. I also used this the morning of my wedding to prep my skin, making sure it was a smooth even base so makeup was easier to apply.

Last but not least Sophie, our Events & Experiences Manager

Before your wedding, how did you prep?

I increased my pilates practice from once a week to 20 minutes every morning switching between the Blogilates app and Pop Sugar’s online workouts. I also played tennis once a week.

I also upped my water intake which worked wonders.

Favourite Pai product that you used on the day?

I mixed the Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil with our Body Cream when my body felt parched from the Summer sun (I had a destination wedding!).

The night before the wedding was key and I slept in our Rosehip BioRegenerate Rapid Radiance Mask. I woke up with dewy, radiant skin that really helped form a base for the makeup.

 

Thanks Pai brides!

Everyone loves the feeling of smooth, polished skin.

But if you’ve ever used an exfoliator containing fruit stone powders or ground rice, you’ll know that feeling can quickly be followed by redness, irritation and even breakouts.

The jagged¬†edges of gritty scrubs can cause micro-tears in the skin’s surface and strip away¬†protective lipids.

exfoliator

A delicate balance

However skipping exfoliation altogether can leave skin dull and congested.

It can also make your favourite Moisturiser or Facial Oil feel less effective, as much¬†of¬†the product absorbs into the dead surface skin cells –¬†leading to tightness, dry patches and a less-than-ideal surface for makeup!

Gentle, regular exfoliation supports skin cell turn over to lift away these dead surface cells and reveal the fresh, healthy skin beneath.

How to exfoliate sensitive skin

Our Organic Muslin Cloth, or the textured side of our Dual-Effect Sensitive Skin Cloth, used alongside your Cleanser will offer gentle daily buffing.

For an extra boost, try our Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator.

Exfoliator_Texture_2

Ideal for skin that’s usually too sensitive for exfoliation, the¬†perfectly spherical natural Jojoba wax beads gently roll across the skin to polish away dead skin cells and impurities – without scratching the healthy cells below.

Rich in Kukui Oil, it also conditions and protects the moisture barrier of sensitive skin while it exfoliates.

Chemical exfoliants like AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta hydroxy acids) offer another grit-free alternative, but they’re often formulated with high levels of drying alcohols and can be far too harsh on delicate¬†skin.

We use ultra gentle, naturally-derived AHAs from Pink Pomelo (and absolutely no drying alcohol) in our Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask to gently loosen dull skin cells and smooth the skin.

Gently does it

Most skin types will benefit from gentle exfoliation once or twice a week.

If your skin is very sensitive or prone to inflammation (such as those with Eczema or Rosacea), we recommend limiting it to once a week or week and a half.

LS-rosehip-1

Keep the glow going

Post-exfoliation is the perfect time to deeply nourish and hydrate the skin and support its natural repair processes. Massage in a few drops of Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil for guaranteed glow.

The last anti-histamine tablet I ever took was on my wedding day almost 8 years ago. I was totally paranoid I was going to start itching uncontrollably in the middle of my vows. I was leaving nothing to chance.

For those of you getting hitched this year and wondering how to ensure calm skin on your big day, here are some of my top tips to save you from reaching for the medicine cabinet:

Get into a good skincare regime early with a focus on gentle cleansing. Do this At least 2-3 months beforehand, so your skin has time to adjust and get into a nice groove.

Once you find the right products that your skin is responding well to, do NOT deviate.

Avoid facials, extractions or any treatments that might cause breakouts or sensitivity a month before. If your hen weekend involves a spa visit, pick a relaxing massage instead.

Keep the wedding nerves in check. Ashwagandha is considered a great supplement for keeping the adrenals quiet while wedding planning stress mounts.

Find the right moisturiser that is going to keep your skin hydrated but not give you too much shine. Our Geranium & Thistle Rebalancing Day Cream is a favourite on film sets because it’s mattifying but is a great base for make-up that needs to stay put for long periods.

A week before the wedding cut out all refined sugar to avoid hormone spikes and skin congestion.

Relax and focus on the moment. True radiance radiates from happy people, whatever their skin challenges!

Bon chance.

Our BioAffinity Tonics are a total skin staple here at Pai HQ; there’s never one far from reach!

The best thing about them is their versatility.

They‚Äôre one of the hardest working products in your regime and can be used in so many different ways ‚Äď which makes them a great investment, especially going into summer.

Here are our five favourite Tonic tips:

1. Over & under makeup

This one’s a tip we picked up from international makeup artist (and lovely friend of Pai!), Kenneth Soh.

‚ÄúThese are a kit essential ‚Äď I spritz on models‚Äô faces before make-up to calm skin, and after make-up to refresh and help keep the complexion looking natural and hydrated.‚ÄĚ

2. Up in the air

In-flight air is notoriously bad for your skin (for more information on this, read our previous post).

The combination of low humidity and recycled air on planes is a nightmare for all skin types, and can have a knock-on effect for days afterwards.

Keep your BioAffinity Tonic in your hand luggage, and spritz throughout your flight to keep skin calm, comfortable and most importantly ‚Äď hydrated.

3. Post-Cleansing

This is classic Toner territory, but important nonetheless. Our BioAffinity Tonics are very rare in that they have the exact pH level of healthy skin, so help normalize pH levels after cleansing.

Top Tip: while your skin’s still slightly damp from your Tonic, follow with a facial oil.

This helps lock-in the extra hydration, but also means you need to use much less oil and it absorbs much more effectively.

4. Desk-side essential

Notebook – tick, water – tick, pen-pot – tick, BioAffinity Tonic ‚Äď tick.

If you work in an office with an over-zealous air-conditioning system ‚Äď you may have noticed your skin suffering.

It might feel tight, or occasionally suffer with dry, flakey patches. Keep your Tonic to hand to spritz throughout the day ‚Äď hydrating thirsty skin and keeping your complexion in check.

5. Sun, sea & sand…

We all know the feeling of irritable beach skin. Too much sand, too much sun and high temperatures can leave skin parched, tight and a little on the red side.

Our Lotus & Orange Blossom BioAffinity Tonic is particularly great at cooling the skin as it inhibits the molecule that causes skin to flare.

Keep in your beach bag, and spritz over skin for instant relief and refreshment.

Have you tried what we consider to be one of our most innovative skincare solution to date? Meet the BioAffinity Tonic.

Until now, toners have commonly consisted of an irritating alcohol base or inert floral water with few skin benefits.

However, thanks to revolutionary High Frequency extraction technology our BioAffinity Tonics harness the incredible skin-benefitting powers of complete plant water extracts.

These unique ‘living waters’ contain a rich complex of vitamins, amino acids and trace minerals as absorbed from the roots and body of the plant.

The organic elixirs have the exact pH of healthy skin, giving our BioAffinity Tonics unparalled skin affinity and the power to optimise skin tone, texture and hydration levels.

Lotus & Orange Blossom BioAffinity Tonic for sensitive, dry or mature skin

Lotus water’s unique power to inhibit cutaneous neuropeptides, the molecules that cause skin to flare, instantly soothes sensitive skin, while Neroli stimulates circulation and skin cell regeneration to promote a clear, toned and luminous complexion.

Packed full of potent antioxidants, this toner also protects the skin against free radical damage.

Rice Plant & Rosemary BioAffinity Tonic for sensitive, combination or oily skin

The antioxidant powers of a host of trace minerals actively cool, rebalance and decongest the skin to promote an even, clear and healthy complexion. The anti-inflammatory properties of Rosemary keep sensitive skin soothed throughout.

Introduce a valuable new step into your skincare regime today. Buy individually (£30), or as part of our Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise Starter Kit (from £80).

While we’re enjoying the lighter evenings and occasional sunshine at Pai HQ, there’s one definite (and audible) downside to spring – hay fever!

Those Instagrammable¬†blossoms and rows of daffodils have also heralded the onset of seasonal allergies. Depending which pollens you’re sensitive to, the season of sneezing can run¬†from March all the way to¬†September!

If you’re dealing with mild to moderate symptoms, you might want to¬†ditch the daily antihistamines and explore some¬†natural alternatives.

thomas-kelley-74109

Quercetin

Naturally found in apples and peppers, quercetin is a plant pigment that gives some fruit and veg their colour.

In test tube studies, it’s been shown to prevent immune cells releasing histamines (the chemicals that cause allergic reactions) and researchers think it may help ease¬†irritating symptoms including watery eyes and runny noses.

Although it can be found in our diets, a supplement at the recommended dose of 500mg twice a day is thought to be most effective.

Bromelain

A mixture of enzymes found in pineapple, Bromelain may help to relieve swelling and inflammation caused by hay fever.

Unfortunately a serving of pineapple doesn’t deliver a large enough dose, so try¬†supplementing 50mg twice a day to banish puffiness.

lauren-mancke-63448

Vitamin C

Studies suggest that a lack of vitamin C can leave our histamine levels higher than normal, making us more prone to itchy skin and sneezing.

Keep topped up on foods rich in vitamin C, like citrus fruits, berries and leafy greens, over the summer months to help support the immune system.

Quercetin supplements targeted at seasonal allergies often contain a mixture of Quercetin, Bromelain and Vitamin C.

Stinging Nettle

Forget the itchy and painful memories of nettles as a child! This roadside plant is thought to reduce the amount of histamine the body produces in response to an allergen.

In early studies 48% of people rated nettle as more effective than other allergy medications they’ve tried.

Include nettle teabags in your stash of herbal teas with hidden health benefits.

acupuncture

Acupuncture

If you want to avoid pills and potions altogether, the answer might lie in some (pain-free) needling!

Small studies have shown promising results, with participants who received acupuncture taking fewer antihistamines over the study period.

However, like most popular hay fever treatments, the results wore off when the treatment stopped.

Unexplained itchiness driving you to distraction? The answer could be lurking in your laundry basket.

Few things feel nicer than putting on a freshly washed pair of pyjamas, but a few days ago I did just this and almost instantly broke out in an unbearably itchy bout of hives.

In my search for the cause, I inspected the¬†laundry detergent box – and it left me none the wiser. Amongst ‘other ingredients’, the vague list named:

  • 15-30% Oxygen based bleaching agents
  • 5-15% Non-ionic surfactants
  • >5% Zeolite, Cationic surfactants, Poly carboxylates, Phosphonates, Soap
  • Also contains Optical brightener, Perfume

For me, “oxygen based bleaching agents” and “optical brighteners” are far too vague, and clearly made-up ingredient names!

Now I know we’re not ingesting the stuff, but environmental triggers such as household products can cause serious flare-ups, as my sore and itchy back is¬†proving.

For that reason, us sensitive skin sufferers need to know exactly what’s in the box.

Here’s what I’ve learnt about selecting more¬†sensitive skin-friendly suds, just in time for World Allergy Week!

  1. Pick a liquid detergent over a powder, as it’s less likely to leave residues in your fabric.
  2. Choose a non-biological detergent as these are enzyme-free. It’s thought that enzymes can aggravate damaged skin and many report an immediate improvement after switching from biological.
  3. Use half of the recommend amount of detergent or opt for Eco wash balls instead.
  4. Use less detergent on garments and bed linen that is going to be in direct contact with the skin for sustained periods of time.
  5. Pick an un-fragranced detergent as artificial fragrances are one of the most common skin irritants.
  6. Opt for a long rinse cycle to ensure all detergent residues have been washed away.
  7. Don’t overload your machine as this can prevent thorough rinsing.

Hi everyone,

I wanted to be the first to tell you about a change we’re soon making to our UK pricing.

From 1st May 2018, we’ll be increasing the prices of some Pai retail products by an average of 10%.

The last time we increased prices was in 2015 – Adele’s 25 was haunting your every move and you were pretending to not want to go see Fifty Shades of Grey!

As a brand, we only use the highest quality organic ingredients and we don’t compromise on quality. In the last 3 years prices of natural and organic ingredients have increased by 30-50%.

Since Brexit, the Pound has devalued against the Euro by 20%, which has also increased our packaging costs as the majority of our glass comes from Italy and France.

I wanted to explain this because you have invested lots in us, and I know that a price increase can sometimes feel like we’re taking you for granted.

If you want to stock up on your faves before this increase kicks in, head over to paiskincare.com within the next week.

And as always if you have any questions, just get in touch with our lovely customer experience team on support@paiskincare.com.

Today marks the start of World Allergy Week, a cause you can imagine is pretty close to my heart!

This year, like every year we want to get on board to help highlight just how prevalent skin allergies and reactions really are.

So, we commissioned some exclusive research and found that:

1 in every 2 British women have experienced a reaction to their beauty products, and are wasting an estimated £148 million on products they can’t use after reacting to them.

These huge figures should hopefully help sensitive skin sufferers feel a little less alone, and also encourage you to think twice before you pick up that next beauty product without reading the ingredients list first.

I dread to think how much money I wasted on unsuitable or misleading products before I started Pai!

Money aside, it’s terrible to have so many products languishing in bathroom cabinets or heading to landfill.

Seemingly reassuring terms like ‚Äėhypoallergenic‚Äô and ‚Äėdermatologically tested‚Äô on product packaging don‚Äôt help, as in reality they mean very little.

‚ÄėHypoallergenic‚Äô simply means it‚Äôs ‚Äėless likely to cause a reaction than other harsh irritants‚Äô, while ‚Äėdermatologically tested‚Äô just means that a dermatologist carried out ‚Äėtolerance‚Äô tests ‚Äď not what the results of these tests were.

We know shopping for sensitive skin can be a real nightmare, so we’ll give you a whole 90 days to really get to know your new Pai products. And if things don’t work out, just let us know and we’ll either help you find a better match or give you a full refund.

Our Soil Association certification means we¬†source ingredients that are grown to organic standards ‚Äď without the use of pesticides and solvents.It also means¬†all ingredients must be sustainable; helping us¬†to invest in local communities and prevent over-farming.Organic farming encourages diverse eco-systems, allowing wildlife to flourish naturally with significantly more birds, plant species and pollinators (bees and butterflies) than non-organic farming.It also means that we never use endangered plant species, such as rosewood essential oil, helping preserve and protect the precious remaining sources.
  2. Rather than transport heavy pallets of double distilled water from elsewhere in the country, we invested in a bespoke water filtration system.This system reduces our water consumption by 50% per year and uses 80% less energy than some systems.It also allows us to recirculate some of the waste water Рmeaning the way we make your products is much more efficient and eco-friendly.
  3. We do our very best to avoid¬†plastic across the range ‚Äď opting for glass wherever possible (52% of the range is in glass packaging). Where we have to¬†use plastic, we use hDPE and polypropylene, both of which are recyclable.

While PET is the most easily recyclable plastic, there are concerns about the migration of BPA (a potential hormone disruptor) into the product. It’s¬†not something we feel we can risk, so all of our plastic packaging is BPA-free.

Our 200ml Cleanser Tubes are now made from 100% biodegradable and renewable sugarcane bio-plastic, something we are hoping to move all of our plastic tubes to soon.

The packing chips we use inside boxes are called EcoFlo chips which are made from maize-starch and are 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable too.

Caring for the environment is the right thing to do ‚Äď and it also helps us sleep at night!
