Who gets dry skin?

Anyone can experience dry skin at any time, while older people often get it as their skin produces less oil, especially on the lower legs, arms, flanks (sides of the abdomen) and thighs.

What causes dry skin?

There are a number of causes for dry skin. Here are just a few:

  1. You may find your skin is drier during the winter months. This is because skin loses moisture when there is lower humidity due to cold air outside and heated air inside

Surfers feet: Don’t suffer surfers foot; prevent it!

Surfers FootCalling all surfers:
Have you ever had sore, peeling feet after surfing? Some surfers have reported a reaction that makes the soles of their feet go red, itchy and peeling, so walking becomes painful and surfing impossible. We can’t have that!

It’s possible that some surfers are allergic to their neoprene booties, or maybe have athlete’s foot or dermatitis. Do you want to go barefoot surfing in cold water, keep trying new booties or restrict your surfing to somewhere tropical? Probably not.

Whatever the cause of the problem, the best long-term remedy is to moisturise your feet daily with natural products that will heal and protect the skin and help prevent surfers foot.

How to prevent surfers foot

Here’s a tried-and-tested régime to help prevent surfers foot.

  • Once a day, wash your feet with our deep cleansing therapy bar (use pre-boiled water if you live in a hard water area). Simply rub the rich lather into your feet. Don’t rinse it off, just let it dry for at least 30 minutes or ideally overnight.
  • Every morning and night, and whenever you want to throughout the day, apply our hydrating therapy balm and/or ultra-sensitive therapy cream.

Note that it’s not just for surfers feet. You can also use this process to protect your skin and help avoid rashes all over your body.

How it works

The foundation of our products is known as Zander. It’s a 6,000-year-old sediment formed from reeds that once grew on the edges of certain North Eastern European lakes. The particular conditions and minimal oxygen levels there means all the vitamins and minerals are retained rather than leached away or rotted down.

Blended with other natural ingredients, the Zander can soak into the skin to repair and maintain it. Its healing properties restore the damaged skin on your feet and strengthen its protective barrier for the future.

Note that this treatment for surfers foot is 100% natural; there are no chemicals and all our products are clinically proven to be non-irritant.

Riding the Waves, Living the Dream

There’s only one place a surfers feet should be – on the board, riding the waves! So don’t let anything stop you.

Ladies, Want to know the secret to super soft hands?

Best Hand Cream for Soft HandsWhat’s by the sink? Rubber gloves, washing-up liquid, washing-up cloth and hand cream. What’s by the basin? Toothbrush, toothpaste, soap and hand cream. At least, that’s the situation in my house, and at my parents’ house, and at my sister’s house. Sometimes, we even compare notes about the best hand cream to use. I bet it’s the same at your house too!

We have to wash our hands all the time, but soap and water can leave the skin dry, hard or even cracked. What you need is a hand cream to keep the moisture in and the skin feeling soft and healthy. But what’s the best hand cream for soft hands?

Best natural hand cream

The best hand cream is gentle, soothing and made from 100% natural ingredients. Our Original Formula Hand Cream protects and moisturises your hands to leave them feeling silky smooth, thanks to the natural ingredients of Zander and Argan oil. Zander is a rare lake sediment that draws impurities from the skin; it also contains vitamins to nourish and renew skin cells. Argan oil is extracted from nuts in Morocco, as a rich source of Vitamin E to fight bacteria and reduce the effects of aging.

5 reasons why our natural hand cream is the best

Here are five reasons to choose our pure and natural hand cream:

  1. Absorbs quickly without feeling greasy
  2. Tested on people, not on animals
  3. No parabens, steroids, petroleum/paraffin or chemicals
  4. No artificial colours, perfumes or additives
  5. No danger of allergic reaction

Here’s what one of our customers said:
“Having experimented with many creams for my hands, I found the Syrinx Za Original Formula Hand Cream to be the perfect combination of fast-absorbing and non-greasy.

By the way, here’s another secret.

Our Original Formula Hand Cream is not just for ladies, and not just for hands! It works just as well for children and men, and can be used on the face and body too.

We think it’s the best hand cream for soft hands. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Watch out Skin, autumn is just around the corner.

Autumn Skin CareIf your skin is anything like mine, you’ll come out in a rash just thinking about the cold winter months, but before we get there we have to endure the slow demise of the warm summer sun, dead leaves from the trees in our gardens and lanes and digging out our sweaters and coats. Yuk

I’m a summer lover; I worship the sun (metaphorically speaking), but I do love autumnal colours and crisp autumn morning walks. Then as the day draws on I wish the sun back again. Enough of my ramblings and on with the subject of my post

Autumn Skin Care Advice

Whilst we can pull on our sweaters and winter coats to protect our bodies our face is left open to the vagaries of autumn and then winter weather. Using a heavy natural moisturiser on the face and a lighter more rapidly absorbing moisturiser on our bodies will help us avoid looking like that old oak in the park by next summer!

It’s no secret that as we get older we need a little help from science and mother nature and Syrinx Za have the perfect autumn and winter skin-care collection to help hold back the sands of time..

Autumn Skincare and Moisturising Regime

All our products are 100% natural; no need to worry about chemicals getting mixed in your autumn skincare regime.

Daily Cleansing
Our Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar is a very clever bar of soap, it contains a high concentration of Sapropel which helps to deeply cleanse, remove toxins from the skin and exfoliate leather-like or delicate skin equally well.

Using our skin therapy soap as part of your daily skin care regime will deliver pleasantly surprising skin softening.

Here’s what a recent new client said.
Never had such good results! – Just to let you know that I received my soap and have already noticed a difference. I have used so many different products, but never had such good results.
Many thanks – Sheila Croton

Face Moisturising
Our Moisturising Therapy Balm is the perfect defence against harsh winter weather, it’s a thick creamy balm that absorbs and moisturises deeply. Apply following your morning shower for all day defence against the elements.

Body moisturising
Under the layers of clothing we’re more protected so a lighter, faster absorbing skin moisturising cream is more suitable, we recommend our Ultra-Sensitive Therapy cream for a luxurious long lasting body moisturiser.

How you can Put an End to Dry Skin on the Face. Naturally.

Dry Skin on the FaceDo you remember the hosepipe ban in many parts of England earlier this year, because local authorities were worried that the reservoirs would run dry? That was followed by one of the wettest summers on record!

And what happened to your garden during the drought? The soil dried and cracked, of course. And what happened when it started raining? Everything started growing again!

Like a garden, the skin on the face becomes dry if it doesn’t contain enough moisture.

What causes dry skin on the face?

Dry skin on the face can be caused by ageing, sunshine, wind, central heating, air conditioning, and certain soaps.

Dry skin lacks oil; dehydrated skin lacks moisture. Both conditions result in inflammation, itching and irritation, together with a feeling that the skin on your face is tight, uncomfortable or even painful.

With that in mind, you’ll definitely want to know how to get rid of dry skin on the face!

How to get rid of dry skin on the face

  • Wash your face with warm water; not hot
  • Use mild, pH-neutral soap
  • Gently dab your face dry with a clean towel; don’t rub
  • Apply a natural moisturising cream
  • Turn down the thermostat on your central heating
  • Open the windows for a few hours each day
  • Limit your exposure to the sun, especially at peak times
  • Drink lots of water
  • Eat oily fish at least twice a week (or take fish oil supplements)

Looking for a cream for dry skin on the face?

There’s no need to use a prescribed steroid cream or lotion with the associated side-effects. And there’s no need to buy expensive designer brands with complicated application programmes.

The Syrinx Za moisturising therapy balm is an affordable cream for dry skin on the face.

It’s 100% natural, with no petroleum, parabens or chemicals; and no artificial colours or alcohol (so there’s absolutely no risk of you having an adverse reaction).

The active ingredient is Zander – a rare lake sediment that draws out impurities and provides vitamins to promote cell regeneration and boost skin immunity. The cream also contains Shea butter and Kalahari Melon Seed oil for their hydrating qualities, as well as Tea Tree oil – a natural antiseptic and disinfectant.

Our gentle moisturising therapy balm suits dry skin, itchy skin, red skin and scaly skin, on the face and elsewhere on the body. Simply use it to lock in moisture after every bath or shower you take.

You’ll find the cream quickly hydrates the skin, and achieves noticeable results within just two weeks.

Just like a garden, if the skin on your face is dry, it needs moisturising! And when you apply our moisturising balm regularly, your skin cells will grow back smooth and healthy.

Safe Natural Treatment for Babies Dry Skin

Treatments for Babies Dry SkinRepeated conversation about a Babies Dry Skin
“Hi, how’s your new baby?”
“Gorgeous, thank you!”
“Everything OK? All fingers and toes present and correct?”
“Yes, except I’m worried about her dry skin.”
“Don’t panic, dry skin is completely normal in new babies.”
“But what can I do about it?”
“Simply apply a gentle moisturiser after every bath.”

Feedback form a frustrated mother
OK, so we’ve imagined this conversation about dry baby skin, but we’re fairly sure it happens all the time!

My two year old daughter has suffered with severe eczema for the last 8 months, leaving her raw, sore and very very grumpy.

We saw 4 different doctors who all suggested we use different creams and drugs, but nothing worked. At my wits end and feeling like a terrible Mother as I could not soothe my childs itchy skin, my friend recommended I try your soap. (Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar)

Within 6 weeks her skin has cleared up, the sores are gone and the itching is under control. I can’t believe the difference in my little girl, who now sleeps all night and is a happy, healthy child again.

THANK YOU !!
Rachel McKenna

Why babies suffer with dry skin

Nearly all babies have a certain amount of dry skin in the early weeks, especially babies that are born a little late. Don’t worry; this is quite normal.

Baby skin loses moisture faster than more mature skin. Baby skin is so delicate that it can be affected by cold outdoor air and indoor heating, as well as chlorine in the swimming pool and even plain soap and water in the bath.

So you are right to learn how to care for baby skin.

Three main ways to care for baby skin

1. Give them short baths (not every day, not too hot, and without using chemical soaps or bubble bath)
2. Ensure they have lots to drink
3. Use plenty of 100% natural moisturiser – a safe, natural treatment for baby’s dry skin

100% natural moisturiser for dry baby skin

When it comes to choosing a moisturiser for sensitive baby skin, these are some of the things to think about:

• Mild and gentle formulation that’s safe for babies
• 100% natural ingredients that leave baby skin soft, smooth and nourished
• No artificial additives, colourings or perfumes that might cause irritation
• No damaging parabens, chemicals or steroids
• Not tested on animals

Our ultra-sensitive therapy cream meets all these criteria. Simply apply it liberally after each time you bath your baby. It contains Zander – a rich source of vitamins to boost skin immunity and generate new cells. It also contains Argan – the botanical oil that has been used for centuries to treat troubled skin for young and old alike.

You can be confident that it helps dry baby skin. And here’s how the conversation will go next time:

“Hi, how’s your baby?”
“Fabulous, she doesn’t have dry skin any more!”
“See, I told you that moisturiser would work!”

Do You Get a Skin Irritation After Swimming Pool?

Skin Allergies, Swimming Pool RashYou Might be Suffering an Allergic Reaction to Chlorine
If you or your children get itchy skin or a mild rash after a session in the local swimming pool then you may be suffering an allergic reaction to swimming pool chlorine. Don’t worry too much there is an easy solution.

Chlorine is a clever chemical which kills micro-organisms and bacteria that can be dangerous to humans, so we should be glad it’s there protecting us from nasty germs and diseases. BUT – chlorine can unfortunately irritate sensitive skin.

How to Avoid Getting Swimming Pool Rash

Swimming Pool Rash or Itchy Skin after swimming in the pool may not happen straight away. With some people its almost immediate but it creeps up on others over a few hours or even a few days. This is because the skin is porous and the chlorine “seeps” in to the skin dependent on how tough or sensitive an individuals skin is and also dependent on how sensitive different people are to chlorine.

Chlorine is the Cause, Sensitive Skin is the Issue!
Some would say keep your kids out of the pool if they are sensitive to chlorine, but we both know that’s not going to happen! Quite right too.
Three Steps to Avoid Getting Swimming Pool Rash
1. Use sensitive skin cream every morning & night.
2. Apply a skin moisturising barrier before the pool.
3. Cleanse skin with chelating soap after the pool.

Swimming Pool Rash Avoidance Steps 1, 2 and 3 Detail

1. Use sensitive skin cream every morning & night
Regardless of age if you have sensitive skin you should take steps to care for it to avoid problems such as allergies to swimming pool chlorine and dogs and cats etc. Read about our Ultra Sensitive Therapy Cream here.

2. Apply a skin moisturising barrier before the pool.
You need to form a barrier between sensitive skin and chlorine but you need to do this with a pure natural product, because most barrier creams are NOT designed for sensitive skin. So this is our advice: Just before you leave home for the pool work our Moisturising Therapy Balm into sensitive areas or the entire body if you suffer all over.

You need to allow a minimum of 30 minutes between applying the Therapy Balm and entering the pool. This will provide a barrier to the chlorine and deeply moisturise the skin as well.

3. Cleanse skin with chelating soap after the pool.
OK, So what is a chelating soap? Our Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar is a Chelating Soap:

Our Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar contains Zander, known as Sapropel.
Zander contains high levels of fulvic substances, with hooks known as ‘ligands’. Each hook acts like a lobster’s claw (or chela), pinching charged metal atoms and drawing them to the surface of the skin. This phenomenon happens instantaneously, the moment the Zander particles come into contact with any metals in the range of pH 1–9. So in practical terms, Zander can remove impurities from the skin – leaving the skin free breathe naturally.

Once you’ve don this just allow lather to run-off don’t rub it off as its good for your skin.

Exit the shower and pad skin dry with a soft towel. Don’t rub the skin, put your dressing gown on and dry naturally.

Once you skin has dried following your shower. Sparingly apply the Syrinx Za Moisturising Therapy Balm all over your body allowing it to soak in for a few minutes before getting dressed. And that’s it!
