Nourish winter hands

Massage Heavy Mettle Fragonia & Sea Buckthorn Rescue Hand Cream into dry hands until fully absorbed.
Then apply the Buriti Balm on top to lock in hydration, paying particular attention to cuticles and calloused areas.

For extremely dry and chapped areas
Blend a few drops of Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil into your Buriti Balm and massage into skin.

To lock-in hydration
Massage the Polly Plum Calendula & Jojoba Comforting Body Cream into slightly damp skin after showering or bathing.
Follow with a light layer of Buriti Balm over areas prone to dryness, such as elbows and knees, to lock in moisture.

Flying or skiing?
Protect against harsh and drying environments. Smooth a little Buriti Balm over your normal moisturizer on areas prone to dryness (lips, tops of cheeks and around the nose) to help prevent dehydration.

Post-pedicure
To comfort and soften, massage the Buriti Balm into dry feet, paying particular attention to the heels and balls of the feet.

Tame unruly hair and eyebrows

Warm a very small amount of Buriti Balm between the fingers and smooth over brows and fly-aways.

Oils have been used in skin care for ages. In fact, the history of beauty oils can be traced all the way back to Ancient Egypt and Cleopatra’s famous beauty regimen. An exceptionally beautiful woman of her time, she was clearly on to something because oils contain high concentrations of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. They are super-nourishing and help to combat flakey dry skin, dehydration, and sebum clogged pores. Oils also act as a great protective barrier for sensitive skin.

Pai Skincare is a London based brand producing 100% certified organic plant based topical skin care products designed especially for people who suffer from sensitive and allergy-prone skin. The inspiration behind the line came from founder Sarah Brown’s own experience with sever skin allergies. When the doctors told her that her only hope was to take high dose anti-histamine tablets daily, she was determined to find a better solution and after years of research and development, Pai Skincare was born.

From conception to creation, all ingredients are sourced, hand picked and tested by a devoted team of sensitive skin care experts. Today Pai Skincare manufactures all of its products in-house at their headquarters in West London which includes their own Research & Development lab and manufacturing facility.

Meet Sarah Brown, the woman behind the brand in The Etiket Questionnaire!

A good day starts with… hearty breakfast

I feel great when I… make someone laugh.

I never leave the house without… keys. So I can get back in!

The next guilty pleasure purchase is… jam doughnuts (what can I say…I’m heavily pregnant). 

The place I always come back to is… Chiswick House park (my sanctuary in London).

My personal style can be described as… comfortable and a bit irregular.

The skin care product I can’t live without is… our Geranium & Thistle Day Cream.

When I travel, I always make sure that I… pack a sleep eye mask. I can’t sleep in rooms with flimsy curtains!

When I want to relax, I need… music. 

When I have a bad day I always… have a good rant followed by a glass of red wine (present time excepted…see question 4).

I find inspiration in… obscure day to day things.

My go-to gift… books. They are lovely to own and every house should have a wall of them.

I would never want to miss out on… time with my two year old.

In my fridge, I always have… mayonnaise.  

On my night table I keep… a notepad – for night time brain dumps when I can’t sleep.

My perfect weekend is… a long lie-in. Ideally two.  

My most inspiring travel moment was when… I saw the Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina one day and the Iguazu Falls the next. Both mind blowing and showed nature at its most monumentally powerful.

The inspiration behind Pai Skincare is… my own challenging skin and how rubbish it made me feel.

If I had to lose one of my five senses it would be… smell, but then I wouldn’t be able to taste anything either. So that unfairly eliminates two. Impossible question!

The one question I want to be asked in interviews is…  Where does Pai get its name? It means ‘goodness’ in Maori. My Mum is a kiwi so it’s my little tribute to her and perfectly sums up everything we’re trying to do and be as a brand.
