This week, we’d like to introduce you to someone very special from Stornoway, on the Island of Lewis. 23-year old Kara Hanlon is an extremely talented swimmer, and one of Scotland’s most promising sporting talents.
Tuesday 8th June is World Oceans Day. It’ll be no surprise that at ishga, we’re incredibly passionate about the ocean, how important it is, and about its unique ability to heal and rejuvenate. Like many other people around the world, our livelihoods depend on it, and so today we hope you’ll join us to celebrate.
It’s a misconception that great skincare is just for women. It’s the way we’re conditioned to think, but more and more men are waking up to the fact that they deserve to look after themselves too. We all age, so why shouldn’t they be able to stay handsome and healthy-looking for longer too?
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.
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.
