he ancients believed that the world was composed of four basic elements – Fire, Water, Air and Earth. These were considered the critical energy forces that sustained life. All of these elements are integral parts of matter (or the physical universe), and the human body is a physical creation that exists in the material realm. Therefore, it was believed that people were made of and governed by the four elements. Maintaining a balance between these elements was advocated to ensure both physical and psychological well-being.
The Quintessence of the alchemists is often described as the Fifth Element; not because it was considered one of the elements, but because it was beyond the elements. It was seen as something new and wonderful in creation that transcended the limitations imposed by the Four Elements.
Your skin is unique…You and your skin cannot be rigidly pigeon-holed. You need the right care concepts for different days and places, different seasons and different stages of life. So I believe in treating skin conditions rather than fixed skin types.
The secret? The rhythm…Rhythm is not an end in itself; it is also a way of contacting your own body. Like all other organisms, your body also recognises and experiences different rhythms. If we take your skin alone as an example, your skin renews itself every 28 days, like the moon. And it behaves differently during the day and at night when it regenerates itself. Like day and night, light and shadow, solstices, seasons, sea tides, flowers, trees and so on, life on this planet and the universe, has a rhythm.Therefore, it is important to tailor your skin care products to these rhythms. The regular use of the right products activates and stabilise your skin’s regeneration rhythm, Rich, moisturising products pamper your skin during the day while at night I would recommend using non-oily products to enable your skin’s metabolic functions to work undisturbed.
