Today on the Lifestyle & Fashion Guide on CBS6 Virginia This Morning, I introduced Toks Ajayi, the hard working woman behind Skôt Beauté. Her organic skin and lip care products have been featured in Glamour, Vogue, and Brides, and she has a heart of gold.
When I met Toks, I was immediately drawn to her upbeat spirit and her desire for women of all ages to look and feel beautiful.
“We believe in celebrating natural beauty and that each and every woman should love, love, love the skin they’re in and embrace their individual uniqueness,” Toks says. She believes a good skincare routine will yield a natural, beautiful healthy glow that will boost anyone’s confidence, regardless of their age.
Skôt Beauté focuses on skin care and lip care. Did you notice my lip color during the show? I’m wearing one of their gorgeous lip care products in PINK BLUSH, and I’m obsessed! If you missed the episode this morning, check it out below!
My other faves from Skôt Beauté? A Hydrating Mist —
it’s a must-have when I travel! This mist from Skôt Beauté can be used as a toner to remove impurities after cleansing or simply to reenergize, moisten, or rehydrate the skin for a velvety smooth feel.
Organic Callendula was chosen as the Star Ingredient of the SKÔT Beauté line for its timeless, simplistic and delicate nature. Yet, extremely effective. It’s name refers to its tendency to bloom with the calendar.
Calendula is a beautiful plant that has been used throughout history in skin preparations. It is beneficial for dry or damaged skin and also promotes fast healing and regeneration of the skin, thanks to its anti inflammatory and anti bacterial properties.
Calendula promotes supple skin, it has natural restorative properties that infuses the skin with a youthful glow. Its often used to protect skin for premature aging and thinning, it’s safe enough to be used on the delicate skin under the eyes to help prevent crows feet.
Calendula works on all skin types as Its native to Western Europe, Asia and the Mediterranean. They are also known as Marigolds which refers to the Virgin Mary.
For centuries, Calendula has been used to celebrate the Virgin Mary who exemplifies Pureness.
Roman and Greeks used the golden Calendula in many rituals and ceremonies.
Calendula is the most luxurious and beautiful flower known to Regenerate and Renew as the flowers blooms and comes back every year.
The characteristics of Calendula is what SKÔT embodies, hence the choice as our star ingredient.

What started your obsession with skin care?
I knew from a young age to always take care of my skin, my mum followed a 3 step skincare regimen faithfully that i emulated however my obsession with skincare began in my early 20’s when I traveled and experienced different cultures and their skincare rituals.
Paris particularly stole my heart, hence my obsession with natural skincare. I visited a skincare line that i favoured and saw first hand how they incorporated natural ingredients grown locally and other regions worldwide.
The French way of accenting a healthy skincare regimen with a simple red lip and proper grooming was highly desired to have no fuss, highly effective skincare products while i travel and its stayed with me throughout my life.

Skôt Beauté is a Beauty Ritual.
Our skin is our best representation and as women we need to see our skin as a worthy Investment. Great skin requires commitment, there truly are no quick fixes
A quality skincare ritual will enhance your natural beauty and increase your confidence. At Skôt Beauté our products are luxuriously made from the highest quality, most effective ingredients nature has to offer and deliver results.
Following are 7 easy steps to develop a Skôt Beauté Style Ritual so your skin can be pampered and look years younger:
1. A daily ritual of cleansing your face morning and night is an absolute must. Use our Cleansing Crèmes instead of harsh soaps that dries the skin. Our Divine Cleansing Créme is an awesome treat for your skin; It gently and thoroughly cleanses your skin with Organic Calendula, Sunflower, Apricot Kernel Oil, Honeysuckle Extract, Oat Flour and Aloe. Leaving your face so soft, nourished, comforted and moisturized without any residue.
2. Mist your face away, applying our Nevaeh Hydrating Mist not only keeps your skin hydrated and moistened, with Dead Sea Salt, Organic Seaweed Extract and Citrus Extract; It helps bring your skin to its proper PH balance enabling your serum and moisturizer to work effectively. As a bonus, our mist also works like a toner, can be applied to remove residual oil or dirt.
3. Treat your skin with our Moisturizing Crèmes daily. Our Supple Glow moisturizing Créme is a treat for your face, with active ingredients like Grape Skin Extract, Sunflower Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Safflower and Spinach leaf. It nourishes your skin, keeping it soft and radiantly glowing.
4. The Eye zone is often left out and shouldn’t be. Our Radiance Eye Créme is an Intensive treatment for your eye zone, infused with Minerals, Organic Calendula, Sea Buckthorn and Avocado Oil. Applied daily, helps diminish the dark circles and keeps it firm and youthful.
5. Absolutely add our Be-Youth-Ful Sérum/Exfoliant to your Ritual at least twice weekly. Your Sérum is your power step in repairing your skin from environmental damage. Sérums are light and thinner in consistency than moisturizers, therefore have the ability to penetrate pores deeper. Our Be-Youth-Ful Sérum/Exfoliant is packed with the highest percentage of potent ingredients like Glycolic Acid which is a naturally occurring non toxic Alpha Hydroxy found in Sugar Cane, Organic Calendula and Organic Cucumber. It helps bring back moisture, diminish dead skin, renews, and springs your skin back to its youthful glow.
6. Give your skin some Intense Love with our mask with nutrient rich ingredients like Apricot Kernel Oil, Murumuru Butter, Mango Butter, Salicylic Acid and Seabuckthorn. An addition of our Intense Love Nutrient Rich Mask to your routine is a ritual we absolutely encourage. Dedicate once a week and show extra kindness to your skin. Apply your mask, light a scented candle, soak in your tub and use 10-15 minute to reconnect and recharge your me time. It’s much deserved
7. Skôt Beauté way is the strong belief that beauty starts from within. We believe what you put in your body affects your skin on the outside. Eat clean and drink lots of water. I personally drink a green smoothie daily. It’s a great start to my day and have become my staple. It gives me the satisfaction that I’ve nourished my body right with the vitamins and anti-oxidants that I need to keep me healthy and my skin vibrantly glowing..
