Top trend anti aging collagen

Nutrition is a key factor for influencing skin health and its overall appearance. Beautiful skin comes from within, they say. This is why nutricosmetics, or the use of supplements to help improve skin health is a growing trend. At the forefront of the nutricosmetic industry is collagen. 

With age, your body stops making collagen. It is the most abundant protein in the body. Collagen can be found in supplements, protein bars and powders. 

Some natural ingredients in topical skincare can help rebuilding collagen in your skin. Giving you an anti aging boost.

Does organic skincare work better?

Would you believe, oils in their purest form are healing for every skin woe — dehydration, irritation, sensitivity, aging, even OILY! What we feed our skin matters. Parabens, phthalates, bisphenol A, nitrosamines, cyclosiloxanes, glycol ethers… a.k.a. chemicals are known carcinogens and are not suitable for the skin, not to mention overall good health.Synthetics are widely used in the cosmetics industry because they are the cheapest to manufacture and to that end, are lowest on the quality spectrum. We can hardly pronounce the above ingredients, so why would we ever in good conscience slather them onto our precious skin? Thankfully there are delicious alternatives.
Organic Skincare BenefitsBetter for you – Nature intended us to have radiant, healthy skin. There are people bothered by more skin irritations than ever before and on the shelf are hundreds of potions with ingredient lists crowding the box promising to keep us looking young. But, nature knows how, simply, without the perils of toxins and cheap, high-tech chemicals. Plants have oils for each skin issue people use chemicals to heal. If our skin is akin to a sponge and our largest organ, taking care of it means staying away from potentially harmful chemically laden ingredients. The skin absorbs whatever it comes into contact with so by using naturally based products you’ll avoid putting harmful ingredients ON and IN your body.

does organic skincare work better? Because the ingredients are better. So the next time you are in the market for great skin, look to natural organic products. The ingredient list should be simple to understand with words that are easily recognizable to you. If you find a list of chemicals and words you can’t pronounce, just know there is a better product that translates to better skin (and overall) health.

Benefits of organic skincare

.By Stephanie Brown

Why Organic Skincare? I get asked this question quite often. Simply put, there are 2 reasons: the good Organic skincare products work better, and they are better for you. People are subject to tons of advertising from the industry giants trying to convince them that their synthetic formulas will work wonders on their skin. Although small companies making pure, natural beauty products don’t have the advertising dollars needed to gain household recognition, the quality and performance of their products makes them worth searching out. If you are in pursuit of a healthy lifestyle, choosing Organic skincare is a priority. The topic is enormous. It is impossible to cover all the points in one discussion. In this article I will go through the basic benefits of choosing natural beauty products. We will continue in greater detail in articles to come.

When you choose organic skincare, you are choosing products whose ingredients work with the sophisticated natural systems of your skin. Given the right nutrients, our skin has the ability to care for and mend itself. Our bodies use nutrients absorbed not only through food, but also through the skin. It is medically understood that what goes on your skin absorbs into your bloodstream and is carried through your body. Why is it that we are far more scrutinizing about what we put in our body than what we put on it? You have probably thought about the benefits of eating a healthy diet. It makes you wonder about the effects of all the chemicals in the skin products that you are slathering on and rubbing in.

The benefits of natural skincare and cosmetics

Why Organic Skincare? Avoiding chemicals and synthetics.

Why Organic Skincare? Rates of illness and disease continue to rise. There are increasing studies showing the connection between illness and chemicals. We need to eliminate or reduce exposure to synthetics. Synthetics are simply not necessary in skincare and in many cases synthetics are downright scary. These ingredients are often fast acting and invasive. Sometimes (and if you want my honest opinion; ALWAYS) they are causing harm we cannot see. Often this exposure rears its ugly head as skin irritation, chronic headaches, cancers, breathing disabilities, hormone disruption, etc, etc, etc. The range of symptoms is too vast to list everything, but you can see how it covers minor symptoms right up to life threatening consequences.

And for what?! you ask. I’ll tell you for what– first and foremost: money, cheap ingredients are easy to manufacture and market. Also, many commercial products will give you instant gratification with skincare results. Most of these products are designed to do a simple job to help you with one aesthetic purpose; Smoother less visible wrinkles, sun spots disappear, blemishes be gone! Sound familiar? These are just a few of the promises that have been made, and believe me, they can deliver. But all too often there is a high price: asphyxiation of the skin, accelerated dehydration, photosensitivity. In Plain english: cutting oxygen exchange to the skin, premature aging, increased risk of sun spots. Yes, the very evils we were initially fighting catch up to us ten-fold.

Hmmm, rather irritating isn’t it? But it is a simple truth we all know: Rarely are there quick fixes in life. We can however have all that we desire. Fortunately for us our skincare is one thing that is within our control. It really boils down to choices. The good ones, the ones that will give us optimal health and the glow we desire, are within our reach. Keep reading my blog. Learn from my advice and I will lead you to every problem solver you could ever hope for.

Why Organic Skincare? What is Organic skincare again?

When we say Organic Skincare, what we mean using skin products made of plant derived ingredients along with some other naturally occurring ingredients. These ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, GMO and so on and often come with an Organic certification. The integrity of these unadulterated ingredients is maintained in the best way possible with little to no additives. From here the best ingredients for the specific goal are chosen and a natural preservative system is used for longevity.

I hope that this has been an enlightening introduction as to why organic skincare is important. There are many benefits to using natural beauty products, but most importantly, they are better for your health, and they work. And work in a way that lasts a lifetime.

Rose hip oil - better than Botox


By : Dana Oliver
Executive Fashion And Beauty Editor, The Huffington Post

 

We often come across the words “rosehip seed oil“ while reading the ingredients list on skincare products. But it wasn’t until former Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr name dropped it as the secret to her radiant complexion that we explored further.

Harvested from the seeds of rose bushes predominately grown in Chile, rosehip seed oil is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin, all while reducing scars and fine lines. With beauty benefits like these, we believe rosehip seed oil has the potential to become the next coconut oil.

Kerr told PopSugar Beauty: “I like to wear rosehip oil at night. It’s full of that many antioxidants and it really works on a cellular level too to rejuvenate the skin. I put that on at night and I wake up glowing.” (Full disclosure: if we woke up in bed next to Orlando Bloom, we’d probably glow, too.)

Actress Rose Byrne is another famous Aussie who credits rosehip seed oil for keeping her sensitive skin under control. You don’t have to take our word for it, the proof is in these pictures.

Before you start slathering rosehip seed oil on your face, we asked Joanna Vargas, celebrity facialist and founder of the eponymous salon and skincare collection, and Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, to explain why this skin savior is so great.

It’s been used for generations
“Rosehips were a remedy that was used by the ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans all because of their healing properties — the oil can be made by cold press or by slow-cooking it,” according to Vargas. “I think the beauty industry is turning more and more to these healing ingredients as an alternative to the chemicals we have relied on in the recent past.”

Though it’s more expensive, cold-pressed is best as it hasn’t been altered by heat and retains more nutrients.

It’s non-greasy and super light
Unlike heavier oils that are commonly used on the face like jojoba and shea butter, rosehip seed oil absorbs easily. Dr. Tanzi recommends using it as an addition to lotions and creams, as it’s anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, which helps to decrease environmental damage and soothe the skin.

It’s a natural acne and eczema treatment
“The essential fatty acids found in rosehip seed oil also work wonders for dry scalp and itchiness due to stress and chemicals in shampoo,” says Vargas. “It’s what the skin needs for hydration and skin sensitivities.”

It’s better than Botox (in our opinion)
With skin rejuvenating properties like vitamin C and lycopene, rosehip seed oil is a safer solution to repair the skin’s surface, restore elasticity and protects against sun and pollution stressors that can lead to wrinkles.

So: Does this convince you to try rosehip seed oil? Or are you already a fan?
