News / antiaging
Those who know me, know that I’m a big believer in a holistic approach to overall beauty and wellness. What we eat, how we move, what we apply to our skin and what we think is all connected. We have all probably heard about the fantastic benefits of meditation. I’ve tried doing it on my own, apps and websites with guided meditations. I stick with it for a few days but then... Now I’ve found something that works for me that I wanted to share. It still took discipline the first week, but now it’s a habit. YouTube 👍
I like the @thehonestguys for meditation and Suzanne Grace for breathing exercises and clearing your chakras. I have to say, I find myself with a more positive mind. Do you have a favorite meditation method you would like to share?

Wellness tip: Now when many of us work from home and spend more time at home, it might be a good time to invest in some house plants. 🌱 Not only do they look lovely but NASA also recommends the following plants for air purification. Areca palm, Mother-in-law’s tongue,🪴 Money plant, Gerbera daisy, Chinese evergreen, Spider plant, Aloe Vera, Broad lady palm, Dragon tree, Weeping fig, Chrysanthemum, Rubber plant and Poinsettia! Perfect for the holidays 🎁
These plants beautify our homes while getting rid of toxins in the air. It’s a win-win situation

Antipollution = anti-aging
You may have heard the term antipollution being used more frequently about skincare and makeup over the past few years. But what does it actually mean? If you are living or working in a city you can’t help but notice the dust in the street coloring everything grey. You may not notice that the air smells bad if you breathe the polluted air every day. Then when you visit the countryside, the air smells so good you know that you have been in a polluted environment. What is this pollution doing to our skin? There is a great deal of interest in the subject and a lot of emerging scientific research is being done. Toxic air has been linked to premature aging, accelerating wrinkles and age spots. The small particles enter through our pores. If you are not in the city, it doesn’t help being nearby as the particles are spread by the wind. That’s why we see more and more antipollution products on the market. Traffic pollution is emerging as the single most toxic substance for our skin. We were delighted to hear that Algica, an algae that is one of the active ingredients in our Make my day cream has been cleared as an antipollution substance after clinical studies.
Algica, together with Vitamin E, also an antipollution protector in Make my day cream makes it an effective pollution shield.

Algae is really hot right now, and with good reason.
It’s the food of the future, in supplements, skincare and even an alternative to fossil fuels. Packed with high levels of calcium, iron, potassium, Vitamin A, C, and K, selenium and magnesium. It’s the future superfood that could feed the entire world. It’s already in dairy and nondairy products, food colorings and spices. We have included it in our Sea me mask, a true Cinderella mask that detoxifies and leaves you with clear, radiant skin. We also have Algica in our Make my day cream. Algica is an algae which is currently being registered in EU as the first future totally natural sunscreen. Algica comes from the sea, so it will not harm sea life. Algae can also be found in numerous supplements. Working wonders with enormous benefits for the whole body. I’m especially grateful for the excellent dental health a specific algae supplement brings. The versatile algae is entering an extremely exciting phase in its history and I believe we will see it in all sorts of products and industry.
I’m telling you… algae is the future.

”Sunscreen of the future
We love sunscreen, but many unfortunately have a detrimental effect on the environment.
That’s why we keep our fingers crossed that Algica will soon be approved as a UV-filter by EU
Algica is made of algae shells and is cultivated by the company Swedish Algae Factory @swedishalgaefactory - totally organic, natural and environmentally friendly.
Besides potential UV protection, Algica also moisturises and acts as an anti-pollution barrier.
Make my day by True organic of Sweden is the first face cream with this ingredient.”
As eco nerds, this is so interesting and we are so excited to be at the forefront in this area
Planet friendly ingredients all the way!
