Food! Food! Food! It is the one concept that most humans understand and love!  And until we saw shows like My Kitchen Rules, Great Australian Bakeoff and Masterchef, our repretore of food language was pretty limited! However, I am sure everyone would know what a simple cornflake, raisin and grape was 🙂

In my last blog I spoke about ‘the experience’, people receiving the <3 warm and fuzzy <3 when dealing with a business when they want to purchase product.   To give a reason for the need of a beauty product, I have found is a sure-thing for a customer to buy.  Lets look at the idea of using food in explaining why the need for a complete skincare regime would benefit our skin.  Remembering our skin is the largest organ in/on our bodies that needs to be looked after just as much as the lungs, heart and kidneys.

The first layer of our skin is called the epidermis!  The epidermis provides a waterproof barrier, protects the inner layers and creates our skin tone. Our second layer is the dermis, this is where hair follicles and sweat glands hang out, and our third layer is deeper tissue known as the hypodermis – made from fat and connective tissue!


Got it???? – Yeah right the average person is going to remember that as soon as they leave the room! Lets change it now into laymens terms or in this instance FOOD – simple glorious FOOD!

The first layer of our skin we are going to recognise as cornflakes, our second layer raisins and our third layer the grape. You can see the image I have posted, that will stay in your mind – its easy to remember.

Putting this concept into play with beauty now!  Cornflakes can represent the dead layer of skin on top.  If we ever tried to put a mosituriser or foundation on a cornflake you will find it is never going to sit flush on the skin.  If you have ever complained about a premium handcreme that has never absorbed and sits ‘wet’ on top of the skin, it is more than likely you have this layer of cornflakes (dead skin) sitting on top. An exfoliation designed for the sensitivity of the face or body is what will remove this gross layer.

🙁 A little gross (but fascinating) fact – each of us will loose a two-storey home full of dead skin over our life time!!  Ewwwwwww………………..

🙂 A little hint – if you exfoliate your legs before shaving, you will find it will last up to two weeks longer – because you are taking away the dead skin and your razor will only catch hair.

Removal of the cornflakes exposes our second layer affectionately know as the raisin!  The raisin is the skin exposed, vulnerable and where our aging process can really get comfortable – you know like a couch potato!  It needs stimulation and motivation! hahahah 🙂 🙂 If we do not look after this layer with our skincare regime of cleansing and toning, it becomes shrivelled up like a raisin.  We need to ensure that we moisturise our raisin, so our next layer of skin can be nice and plump like a juicy healthy grape!
