Taking care of your skin in Winter!
We think that Summer is a hard time for our skin but actually the cold and drying winds of Winter are equally harsh.
The good news is that there are many things we can do to take care of our skin in winter:-
- Protect your neck and lower face with a warm scarf.This year there are some wonderful circular scarves which are perfect for playing sport and giving your neck great protection.
- Take extra care with Hydrating your skin and use the most nourishing moisturizer-in our griffin+row range you might change to Enrich for the Winter months.
- Take care of your diet and don't fall for the quick warm up of junk food-go for healthy soups,green vegetables winter fruits
- As heating can dehydrate your skin,use your Hydrate during the day to refresh and revitalize your skin.
- Do the griffin+row face mask-at least once a week
- Protect your hands by wearing gloves and use Enrich on your hands as a really effective protective cream.
- Dont let the cold hold you back from exercising.Exercise daily to help blood circulation which enhances skin cell renewal (cover up when outside in the cold wind)
- Make sure that you maintain your twice daily morning and night routine-its vital all year round!
A Tribute to Mothers for Mothers Day from griffin+row
The role that mothers play in our community is extraordinary and rarely acknowledged:
- They set the standards (and are the role models) for the next generation
- They often have 2 full time jobs -mothering and a paid job!
- They juggle many management roles- house,work and family.
- They generally put themselves last
- They are unsung heroines
Pregnancy and skincare.
Recently we were asked at griffin+row if our range was suitable for pregnant women.
As our products are free from harmful chemicals and are based on the concept of using only daily essentials -our range is very suitable for pregnant women.
griffin+row has been designed to give maximum skincare for minimum effort.
We know women are time poor,juggling children,work and life generally.
griffin+row reflects the belief of many dermatologists that we do need to do something to our skin everyday -but we do not need complicated regimes or products that are simply designed to increase the sales of a brand.
That is why we are focussed only on the steps we need to slow down skin ageing-Cleanse,Exfoliate,Hydrate and Moisturize

Easy steps for Sensitive skin care
If you have really sensitive skin and are worried about trying new skincare products here are some tips:
- Try only one product at a time-changing skincare is like changing your diet-do it slowly!
- Start with the cleanser.
- When you start using a new moisturizer or hydrate try on the back of your neck and wait to see if there is redness or any reaction.
- Remember that you only need to use small quantities of product,your skin can only absorb so much.

Can any skincare be allergy -free?
It is almost impossible to say that any skincare can be allergy free because we can have allergies to even the purest ingredients.
We can say however that taking out harmful chemicals reduces the likelihood of a skin reaction.

As I speak to many women about their skincare concerns there seem to be 3 big questions!
Can we stop skin ageing?
Of course this is the biggest question of all and the answer is that while we can't totally stop skin ageing we can do a lot to slow it down and that is what we need to focus on.
I want to say thank you to our loyal customers and also to say how much I appreciate your love of our products!
Thank you for the calls and emails regarding product availability, you will notice that we are now in more and more pharmacies, in order to ensure that you have easier access to the range.
I was looking the other day at our original mission statement and the thinking behind griffin+row
I thought you might like to see that we remain on mission!
