The Benefits of Oils on Oily Combination and Sensitive Skin Types

The Benefits of Oils on Oily Combination and Sensitive Skin Types

 Did you know that the pores in your skin can average 2500 per square inch? No wonder we have skin care problems! Breakouts occur once a pore becomes anaerobic (no oxygen). Keeping pores clear is the first defense against face and body acne and skin sensitivities. Pores need to breathe just like we inhale air your skin needs oxygen too to stay clear and healthy!  Fall and Winter can create more skin problems due to the change in humidity and the dryness of being indoors more, and water loss when cleansing (showering and bathing.)  People generally think oils are not...

Why use a serum?

Serums mimic our own skin oils... if they have this ingredient - Jojoba. Jojoba is a fatty ester that is closest in texture to our own skin's lipids. As we age our skin loses density and texture. Our skin can lose up to 57% of its lipids as we age. Internal factors like menopause and external factors like the sun all contribute to your skin's aging prematurely. What are lipids? Lipids are the skin's natural oils locked within and between cellular membranes. They hold the skin together and are the pathways of communication between cells. Pretty important jobs if you...

Seasonal Skincare: Autumn

Summer has come and gone in the blink of an eye, and with the change of season comes a change in skincare needs. The heat, sun, and chlorinated pools combined with the lazy days of summer (with a less-than-attentive skin routine) require a serious skin pick-me-up. If your skin starts feeling drier, flaky, or itchy during the colder months, the dry air, both inside and out, are probably to blame. Here is our guide to keeping your skin beautiful and healthy when weather takes a toll. Banish breakouts. The best way to manage post-summer breakouts is to incorporate a mask or serum into your...

Do's & Don'ts For Perfect Skin

Do wash you skin with a mild cleanser that does not leave behind a residue. I find cream cleanser best, my favorite is Roobios Tea. Do use a clay-based mask treatment once a week to eliminate excess oil. The Blueberry Bliss Face Masque is great for this! Do treat your skin to facials, even if it's a DIY. Do avoid rough scrubbing of the face, instead gently apply products with finger tips. Don't pick of squeeze pimples. This can spread infections, delay healing and cause long term scaring. Do rinse with lukewarm water after cleansing your face and using a...

Ingredient of the month: Algae and Kelp Extract

 ALGAE AND KELP EXTRACTS WHAT IT IS  Like many of nature’s superpowers, algae and kelp extracts are unassuming to the eye but remarkably potent, rich in both antioxidants and skin-nourishing minerals that work wonders for your health and skin. WHY WE LOVE IT Sea plants and human blood plasma have nearly the same mineral levels, making algae and kelp among the most bioavailable skincare ingredients. When you smooth kelp and algae extracts on your skin, the cells readily absorb their high concentration of magnesium, calcium and potassium to help boost collagen synthesis and prevent wrinkles. As an added bonus these...

5 Tips to Glowing Skin By July

Wash your cosmetic brushes weekly with lemon and rosehip shampoo to prevent breakouts. The shampoo is gentle on the bristles of the brushes, yet effective at cleaning the old makeup. Reduce the amount of caffeine you drink; it dehydrates your skin. Your skin is the largest organ in your body but is the last to receive water. Add more water or coconut water to your diet. Reduce your sugar intake; it causes some skin types to get blotchy and warm. Eat whole foods the way they came from nature, not processed or canned. The salt and other chemicals in processed...

It may be the case that you can't do anything to avoid exposing yourself to these triggers, however there are some instances where they can be avoided. Identifying what sets you off is key.

Antioxidants... your insurance policy for a healthy future!

What are antioxidants? They are protective substances that stop potential cellular damage before it happens. Our bodies produce free radicals which are a by product of cells as they produce oxygen. It is an atom or group of atoms that has at least one unpaired electron and is therefore unstable and highly reactive. Exposure to environmental pollution, chemicals and nitrates in our foods increase our exposure. Free radicals attack cells breaking down collagen and elastin, they slow down lipid production, which dehydrates the skin, this in turn reduces the resiliency and tone of the skin. Premature aging is the result...

The misconception of facial serum

Let me set the record straight – not all oils are bad for skin, not even oily or acne skin! Coating your face with oil sounds like a skin debacle waiting to happen. Most of us want to get rid of oil, not slather it on. This misconception has given facial oils a bad rep. Facial oils actually do just the opposite of what you might expect. They reduce oiliness and breakouts, while leaving your skin with a healthy glow. Oil is not the enemy here as it is so often portrayed; it’s about knowing which oils to indulge and which to...

Do I Need a Toner?

The toner’s role is probably the most misunderstood in the entire skincare regimen. Many don’t know that this step of a beauty routine is actually very beneficial for your skin: toners prepare skin for treatments and moisturizers, boost up other products’ benefits and clean skin of residue. Here are some reasons why you should use a toner: 1. It balances your skin’s pH After using cleansers, your skin’s pH balance changes to more alkaline. Applying a toner helps balance the skin’s pH to its natural 5.5 – 6 level. Having a balanced pH level means your skin stays healthy, and is...

Health and Wellness Tips for Winter

Today I'm sharing what tips I'm trying to follow for 2015 to improve my overall health and wellness. Most people seem to say, new year, new you, but committing to a "new you" is quite a drastic and almost unachievable goal. I think we should instead try to become better versions of OURSELVES through small, realistic and more achievable changes. Drink warm lemon water & honey upon waking. I've read that this is good for you in several different places. I mostly drink it because it makes my insides feel nice and warm. I also like to think it's helping to...

Exfoliation- yay or nay?

We all know that exfoliating your face is the fastest way to spruce things up in the skincare department by way of removing dermis-dulling dead cells, improving texture and tone, unclogging pores and helping skin lap up all of those lovely moisturizing creams and serums. It's also a great glow boosting technique, encouraging cell turnover and prompting healthy, younger-looking skin. But — and there's always a but — are you overdoing it? Are you scrubbing your face into submission or using a formula that's all wrong for you skin type? Why Exfoliate? Exfoliation is the removal of the oldest dead...

Make 2015 your mission to have better skin

Make 2015 your mission to have better skin than you did new years of 2014. It’s as easy as committing 30 minutes a day and 5 minutes a night to a committed skin care regimen. As we age our skin care needs change dramatically. Baby’s skin regenerates itself approximately every 14 days where as an adult female’s takes about 28 days. As we get older our skin loses collagen and elasticity—couple that with diet, habits, polluted air, and the water we drink and we’re aging rapidly. Results show that people who frequently change their skin care routine look older than those who stick...
