We caught up with founder of Georgie Skin to talk less-is-more beauty, lazy skincare essentials and how to get glowing, summer skin.

Sometimes, the most effective skincare is the simplest. That’s certainly the mantra of Tanya Georgie, founder of eco-friendly skincare brand Georgie Skin.

For Tanya, skincare should be simple, effective and kind to the planet, which is why she launched the brand’s 100 per cent Raw Silk Exfoliator to replace the mountain of plastic bottles hiding in your bathroom cupboard.

Raw silk is an effective way to exfoliate the skin without the need for any nasties. It’s lazy-girl perfection, because it’s as simple as adding water to the silk washcloth and buffing into the skin to instantly polish away roughness, smooth uneven texture and reveal a healthy-looking, glowing complexion. “Age and environmental damage slow the skin’s natural ability to shed dead cells, leaving it dull, rough and prone to clogged pores,” says Tanya. “When the old cells are removed, it sends a feedback message to the cells deeper down to reproduce fresh cells.”

Silk naturally contains proteins and amino acids, which nourish the skin and help to build a healthy skin barrier. Because silk is natural and hypoallergenic, it’s suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.

When the skin looks healthy and glowing, the rest of your beauty routine becomes simple, too. There’s less need for foundation and concealers, which is a blessing in the sticky heat of summer. Tanya launched Georgie Skin after transforming her own self-care ritual. “I began to really focus on my self-care through my skincare routine,” she says. “It became a meditative space for me.” Now, the founder is on a mission to help more women carve out that space for themselves, to, as Tanya says, nourish their inner goddess. “Because when you look good, you feel good, too,” she says.
