The love affair with Charlie Locks
“Wow - I want your skin!”
It may sound funny but I often get asked about my skin, questions like what is my secret, how can I have glowing skin, and how on earth do you do it being a busy Mummy?
Well it is all down to the Charlie Locks Professional Skincare System, taking time to look after my skin and ensuring I keep hydrated with plenty of water. I must confess, I have never been great at looking after my skin and never really bothered with cleansing and toning as I didn’t see the point it is only in recent years that this has changed when I went for my first facial – why did I wait until my 30s! A glorious spa day (you remember those!) I had a Declόr facial and oooh it was lovely but my goodness the price of the products is insane – so I slipped into old habits and then I decided to add facial treatments to my business. The facials and skincare course I completed and the amazing trainer opened my eyes to skincare. Our skin is our largest organ, our faces in particular are exposed to so much so why not take care of it? Most people these days are desperate to look younger, want a quick fix but ageing is natural. For me personally we should embrace our natural skin as ultimately, it’s about how you look after yourself that makes the difference.
Learning all about the different skincare products and the importance of a skincare routine took me to consider what I actually put on my body. During my training I used lots of different products but one company stood out and that was Charlie Locks which was for a few reasons. Charlie Locks are a local company based just outside Winchester, they use organic essential oils, SLS and paraben free, no harsh chemicals or nasty additives, the products are not tested on animals, vegan friendly and they can be used on everyone no matter what your age thus celebrating a truly #HappySkinLife. I have a very close working relationship with Julie and Mark at Charlie Locks. They champion small businesses and are always on hand for support and advice, they instil passion and the products that Julie has created are just fabulous.
It is important to me to use products on my clients that I would use myself and as a busy working Mummy I wanted products that would adapt to my life which are practical, didn’t take hours on end to use and would have a winning result. That is Charlie Locks. They smell divine and even when used in a hurry I feel pampered and my skin feels alive. My clients adore these products and like many they’ve been fooled for years by the skincare industry that we all have a particular skin type but its rubbish, a pure marketing trick. Our skin varies on a daily basis, dependent on many factors, the weather, if it is hot or cold, exposure to wind, being cooped up indoors, air-conditioning, what you are eating, drinking, smoking, hormone levels the make-up and products you use all influence the tone, texture, hydration and the overall appearance of your skin.
The simple steps of Charlie Locks will have you utterly glowing, so make time for your skin bringing back it’s natural glow and move towards a #HappySkinLife with this amazing local company.
