The power of Australian superfoods for ultimate self-care and skin wellbeing

The opposite of busyness isn’t boredom, it’s balance. In our fast-track modern world—between personal errands, raising children, professional advancement, quality time with loved ones, helping others and, let’s face it, social media—there seems to be hardly any time for the most important and deserving person: you.

As your skin is the outer shell that reveals your health and happiness, feeding and nourishing it is one way to practice self-love—even if you have a few moments every day. By nurturing yourself in any way that makes you glow, you give yourself the power and fuel to do all the other amazing things you do.

This is why here at LATHER, we’re passionate about creating skincare that bottles up the best of nature’s healing resources—so every minute and second, you spend on yourself is enriched and optimized for rejuvenation and relaxation.

In this spirit, we’re thrilled to introduce our latest skincare darlings, our Australian Superfoods pair inspired by the lush landscapes, biodiversity and passion for clean beauty of our friends down under.

Whether you have a minute or 30, here’s the two-step Superfood routine for your skin:

1. Purify and refresh skin with Caviar Lime AHA Cleansing Crème

There’s nothing quite like melting the day’s stress away with a cleanser that leaves your skin feeling clean, clear and wide open for revitalization.

The Caviar Lime AHA Cleansing Crème features the remarkable Caviar Lime (a.k.a. finger lime), a fruit of the citrus family native to the sub-tropical rainforests in Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. 

This fruit—which is filled with caviar-like pulp—gushes with natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that exfoliate and smooth skin, while the potent antioxidant vitamin C brightens your complexion. The bioactive compounds in caviar lime also help to pave way for deeper penetration for other ingredients, such as meadowfoam seed oil, which nourishes skin with vitamin E and conditioning fatty acids as well as sodium hyaluronate, a powerful natural humectant, able to bind up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture.

Self-Care Step 1 of 2: Add a bit of water to Caviar Lime AHA Cleansing Crème to create a lusciously rich, creamy foam to dissolve and sweep away makeup, excess oil, dirt and other pore-clogging impurities. Don't forget to deeply inhale the calming scents. Don’t rush this. Use this as a time to clear our your mind.

2. Flood your skin with hydration and youth-boosting nutrients with Australian Plum Night Crème

No matter your skin type, veiling your face and neck with nature’s most nourishing “skin food” will keep it soft, plush, bouncy and most importantly, healthy! The Australian Plum Night Crème, which feels comforting and buttery-soft, intensely renews skin as you sleep with a bouquet of nature’s most potent skin protectors.

The star? Australian Kakadu Plum contains the absolutely highest concentration of vitamin C in any botanical (in fact, it contains 100 times more than an orange!). Vitamin C, among many other things, is your skin’s fierce defender—it protects you from damaging, age-expediting free radicals caused by environmental aggressors. Pair that with a complex of three amino acid peptides, which help skin plump up, produce more firming collagen and drastically soften the appearance of fine line, wrinkles and sagging.

Self-Care Step 2 of 2: After cleansing, use the tip of our fingers to massage in the crème in upward, circular motions. Stop to press into your temples, above the eyes and below the eyes to release pressure and stress. Drift into Dreamland and wake up with energized, reawakened skin.
