Who doesn’t want to look their best on their wedding day? With so many other to-do’s to take care of, navigating beauty stores to find the right products to give you that perfect wedding glow can be a dizzying experience. With so many brands out there, it can be difficult to find the products that will work best for your skin, without risking a beauty disaster with only days from the altar. When you have sensitive skin or allergies, it adds an extra layer of stress to the experience.
Many natural lines are free from harsh ingredients, and may moisturize, but they don’t do much to help rebuild damaged skin. On the other hand, many expensive, clinically effective lines do get those results but are filled with ingredients that can cause reactions for people with sensitive skin. Unfortunately, current regulations allow both categories of skin care to continue to add toxic ingredients to their products, often hidden under the umbrella term “fragrance” on their labels.
Ayr Skin Care founder, Kirsten Thomas, found herself in this difficult position years ago. Faced with multiple allergies, it was impossible for her to find products that were effective enough to help feed her skin, while being gentle enough to avoid inflammation. She has dedicated years of research into taking the best of both worlds to develop her own line, getting the benefits she was looking for in high-end beauty lines, ensuring that the active ingredients are safe and gentle, and only scenting the line with pure fruit extracts and essential oils. She started sharing her line with friends and family, and, as it grew in popularity, she and her daughter Fiona launched Ayr Skin Care in 2017 to share it with a wider audience.
Today, Ayr Skin Care offers luxurious skin care products designed for sensitive skin, free from toxic ingredients, synthetic colors or fragrances, as well as most major allergens. Every product is still handmade in small batches, with Kirsten personally overseeing every single product that leaves their lab.
Check out three highlights from Ayr Skin Care’s line of products!
