The ocean is what makes ishga products special. Our beautiful golden sands and turquoise waters are breathtaking, and our remote location means that the clear water and the plantlife that grows there is so abundant in vitamins and minerals, that it makes an amazing difference to your skin.
April is stress awareness month, and has been for the past 29 years, since 1992. Today, it’s fair to say, we’re more stressed than ever, with busy, demanding lives and a global pandemic just to add to the load. We’re surrounded by noise that commands our constant attention and instant reaction, and unless we make a conscious effort to recognise the stress in our lives, our mental and physical health will suffer.
At ishga, our quest to deliver the healing power of the sea and bring you joy continues. We’re delighted to tell you of our latest partnership with Glasgow’s multi-award winning company Cutitronics, which means we can now analyse the health and condition of your skin at any time, using a clever ‘Fitbit’ style device.
January is the perfect time to consider your routine for wellbeing. After the indulgence of the festive period, starting afresh with some good healthy habits is welcomed by our bodies and minds! Sometimes routines can be a drag, but they also keep us grounded and create good habits to improve overall wellbeing.
Organic skincare is all around us, and just like organic food, we’re told it’s so much better for us than other brands we might have trusted for years. We want to take a look at what makes it different. What makes it so special?
We’ve all become used to lots of words and phrases related to the pandemic this year, but one that’s especially unwelcome is ‘maskne’. As the name suggests, maskne is localized acne or spots, caused by the coverings we have to wear to keep us safe.
At ishga on the Isle of Lewis, we’ll have our usual longer nights and shorter days and enjoy bracing walks on the beach, with clean, fresh air and wide-open skies. Christmas in the Hebrides is, as you’d imagine, a community affair, usually celebrated in cosy homes with good neighbours. We may not experience the fun of our traditional celidh this year, or a Hogmany celebration with friends, but we’ll enjoy ourselves and count our blessings.
