FAQ

Even when you fancy yourself smart about skin care, you may occasionally cross paths with a product ingredient you’ve never heard of that comes with a whiff of exoticism, and is literally worth its weight in gold…

Q: Are your products organic?

A: We only use the highest quality organic & natural products, but we are not certified organic at this time. All items we do use are certified organic / natural, and manufactured in an ECOCERT approved facility.

Q: What are your thoughts about organic and natural ingredients in comparison to ingredients which are not natural or organic, used in anti-aging skin care products?

A: At Skin Care Simplified, we believe in Nourishing your skin naturally with extracts from plants and oils. Many of the larger skin care companies that dominate the anti-aging skin care industry use ingredients which are toxic both to our environment and to ourselves. These companies don’t provide their customers with effective results. Since organic and natural ingredient skin care is gaining popularity, these companies are going to market with new products touted as organic and natural. Unfortunately, natural and organic are words which are easy to place on labels with little need to prove their validity. We’re being misled into trusting these products. Not all companies are following suit. We buy our ingredients from distributors we trust. We use the best ingredients available on the market today.

Q: My products weren’t handled with care.

A: We are so sorry to hear that your package from our door to your door had some boo-boos. Please take a photo of the contents/damage, along with your order and please email us at roan@skincaresimplified.co.za so we can rectify this as quick as possible.

Q: I would love to include Skin Care Simplified in my boutique.

A: Oh my, that’s wonderful! Please email roan@skincaresimplified.co.za for more information. Many thanks!

Q: Do your products really treat my skin concerns?

A: Thank you for asking! First, we love our products and have seen positive results. But they are not a cure-all and we always advise to seek medical treatment from your medical professional with any concerns.

Q: How can I fix an uneven skin tone?

A: An uneven skin tone is caused by an uneven distribution of pigment. Sun exposure and hormonal changes can also contribute to this issue. Certain serums, creams or moisturizers, can all help to even out your skin tone. It is also possible that your skin can develop an uneven tone due to a buildup of dead skin cells. If that is the issue, a simple way to even out your skin tone is to exfoliate once a day or every couple of days.

Q: How do I find out my skin type?

A: Typically, skin is classified in just a few categories, including normal, oily, dry, and sensitive. If you have combination skin, it means your skin is one type in one area and another type in another area (oily around your T-zone but normal everywhere else, for instance). Your skin type can change over time and can also be affected by factors such as hormones, medications, and diet. To get a good idea of what your skin type might be, wash it gently and leave it product-free for several hours before examining it closely to observe different areas.

You know your skin best. Paying attention to how it looks, feels and acts on a day-to-day basis, as well as how it reacts to different skin care products, is the best starting point to finding a routine that will leave you feeling healthy, rejuvenated and vibrant for many years to come.

Q: How do I know if a product is right for me?

A: Sometimes, there is no way to tell for sure unless you try it. Usually, however, you can make an educated guess by examining the product’s label and ingredient list. To increase the chance that products won’t irritate your skin, seek out those that are fragrance-free, contain little or no alcohol.

Q: How can I avoid wrinkles?

A: Wrinkles are a natural result of aging, but you can delay their onset or minimize their appearance. To do so, limit sun exposure, wear sunscreen every day, and use skin products that contain antioxidants, vitamins and natural extracts from plants and oils, which can reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Q: How can I prevent aging skin?

A: As your skin loses elasticity and collagen, it naturally begins to appear wrinkled and saggy. By caring for it and focusing on prevention, you can minimize these issues. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day, and consider using products that are high in antioxidants and other topical products that contain, vitamins and natural extracts from plants and oils which can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.

 Q: How should I store my products?

A: To maximize the shelf life of your products, store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, heat, humidity and excess moisture.
