5 simple things you can do today to make your skin glow!

Posted: Aug 06 2014

Switching to organic, natural ingredients can change your life and the life of your skin, but where to start? It may sound overwhelming to think about throwing out all your drugstore brands and starting over. The ingredients used in Natural, Organic and Vegan products are safer for people who are prone to skin and/or eye irritation, allergic reactions, or breakouts. Many people with sensitive skin have had tremendous success using eye and face makeup that is made with the purest of ingredients.

Here are 5 simple things to get you started and make your skin glow!

1. Clean skin is happy skin!  Everyone knows this but it's surprising to see how many are not sure the best way to wash without drying out. Most face soaps leave a residue behind, and really dry out your delicate skin. We recommend a natural and organic face cleanser. High on our list is John Masters Organic Linden Blossom Face Creme Cleanser.  The softening properties of linden blossom and rose essential oil are mixed with a light non foaming facial creme. Forah oil helps to repair skin and promote cell growth as dirt and makeup disappears.

2. Moisturize! Our favourite multi tasker is RMS Beauty Coconut Cream.  Apply a minimal amount and work cream gently into the skin. Remove with a soft cloth. Use as a body moisturizer to soften dry elbows, knees, shoulders – anywhere you have skin! Allow coconut oil to absorb before dressing. Bonus! Also works as a deodorant: Simply apply to clean, dry underarms. Excellent as a hair treatment that you could leave on overnight.

3.Nobody wants crows feet!  Stay ahead of the game with Farmhouse Fresh Crow Catcher , in a clinical consumer perception study 75% saw visibly more youthful eyes in 7 days and 91% in 14 days.  98% Natural, paraben and sulfate free, vegan and gluten free, this powerhouse serum uses dermatologist developed peptides and complex nutrient algae that visibly improves the entire eye area. Now that's something to crow about.

4.Use a face makeup that's actually good for you! Best beauty product RMS "un" cover up is  formulated to reveal and enhance healthier looking skin…not just cover it up. Completely lightweight and hydrating to the skin, the 'un'cover-up will reveal more youthful and radiant skin. Minimizes the appearance of pores and rejuvenates the skin. Use as a foundation or a light concealer as it visibly melts into the skin while covering imperfections and redness. Provides even coverage for flawless looking skin that will never look heavy or dry. Moisturizes and heals, resulting in a beautiful second skin. 

5. Pick a lipstick that looks good and is nourishing for those lips.  We love, love, love two brands that are organic and natural!! ILIA Beauty and LippyGirl Organic Lipsticks both have the best colour ranges and feel so good on your lips. 

We care about your health. Natural beauty products are referring to the fact that they include ingredients that are plant-based, mineral-based, are not chemically altered, and are deemed safe, effective and beneficial for use on the skin. The skin is the body’s largest organ and whatever goes on it is absorbed into the bloodstream….so make sure that you use the gentlest and safest of ingredients.

This is the only skin you will ever have, LOVE it and treat it well! :)
