I often get the question, which is my favorite product. It’s a hard one to answer because I love all of them in a different way. But nothing gives me such radiant and clear skin as Sea me mask. It’s a real Cinderella mask. One of the reasons Sea me mask is one of my favorite products is because we added a whopping 5% Chlorella in the recipe which really makes a difference.
Chlorella is a single cell green algae that grows wild in fresh waters. It’s packed with nutrients so great in your smoothie but did you know that when applied topically, it works through the layers of skin. It battles free radicals, plumps the skin’s appearance, fights photo damage from over exposure to skin and reduces inflammation.
Chlorella is great for all types of skin, it balances oily skin, detoxifies acne prone skin, keeps moisture for dry skin and calms unwanted redness. It’s packed with antioxidants for healthy glowing skin.
Chlorella fights against aging, promotes skin elasticity and visibly firms skin. When dead and dying cells remain on the face we get a dull and gray complexion. With regular use of Sea me mask the Chlorella encourages new cell turnover to reveal brighter younger looking skin.
Sea me mask is also the best acne treatment I have tried. It reduces the breakouts and improves skin quality. The lipids in Chlorella kill the microorganisms that are the cause of breakouts. Additionally the fatty acids disrupt the pro inflammatory cytokine activity that leads to more breakouts.
To sum it up Chlorella detoxifies your skin, it moisturizes and refreshes dry skin, nourishes skin, slowing the aging process, promotes clear skin
Walking may be the simplest and most underrated form of exercise.
There is a lot of information out there about the positives of running and lifting weights, but the simple activity of walking can provide a whole host of benefits too.
Walking is simple, free, and nearly any able-bodied person can do it.
As well as burning calories, studies show that brisk walks may help to reduce the intake of high calorie snacks by half. Walking increases bone strength, every step counts. People who walk at least 1,5km a day have a higher bone density than those who don’t.
Walking is just as effective as running for fighting major diseases.
Regular brisk walking may help to maintain a healthy weight, prevent various conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and stroke. Improves your cardiovascular fitness level, strengthens bones, muscles, and improves muscle endurance. May improve your mood, sleep, balance, and coordination. Builds up your immune system and reduces stress. Researchers found that walking for 30 minutes, 3 times a week for 3 months had the same mood boosting result as antidepressants.
As for myself, I have a dog who is a very fast walker, come rain or shine, I’m out there walking. I have noticed that my normal winter lows are not as bad since I got my dog Spencer. If it’s very cold or harsh weather I protect my face with All you need is me balm. Since it contains no water but let’s your skin breathe, it’s perfect for protecting the face. My best ideas and thinking also happen out there on the walks.
See you out there :)
Getting ready to say goodbye to the Swedish summer. Trying to think positive 😃 we are also saying goodbye to mosquitoes, fruit flies, flies, slugs and the lawnmower 😉 Hello to school start, comfort food, beautiful leaves, cozy sweaters, apple 🍎 picking and chanterelle treasure hunts. Chanterelles are anti inflammatory, rich in antioxidants, boost immunity, anti microbial and taste heavenly 😋

An easy way to pamper yourself is applying your favourite body lotion every day. Some of the benefits using body lotion, it seals in moisture and prevents skin drying. A shower or bath can leave skin dry, reducing levels of your skin’s natural oils. A good body lotion restores your skin’s moisture balance. Body lotion softens your skin and soothes rough patches. By massaging the lotion into your skin, you improve elasticity and improves circulation. If you apply body lotion on clean damp skin or just before going to sleep it helps the skin absorb optimising nutrients. With a delicate scent, applying body lotion can also be an uplifting ritual to start or end your day. For a limited time, you can make great savings on our unisex organic Body buddy lotion with a delicious scent of Bergamot, Sweet orange and Lemongrass. http://www.trueorganicofsweden.com

When we at True organic of Sweden create new products, every single ingredient is carefully selected. Equally important is what we don’t want in the product. We are much stricter than the profit driven organic certification bodies. In our new Make my day face cream we have jojoba(ho-ho ba) oil. The thought behind it is, that our skin is made up of natural wax esters (called sebum). The sebum locks in moisture to keep skin hydrated and healthy. The sebum production begins to decrease as we age, which means, fine lines, dry skin and sagging take place . The amazing thing with the jojoba plant is that it naturally produces wax esters identical to our very own sebum. This means jojoba oil mimics our own skin’s natural oils and can penetrate at deeper levels. Because it is able to penetrate deep into the skin, it may help to ferry down the other active ingredients in Make my day where they can do some great work.
Jojoba oil is a real multitasker and it’s well researched. It has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, hypoallergenic and antibacterial properties. Jojoba oil is loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin B, minerals like chromium, copper and zinc. It also contains both omega 6 and omega 9.
It balances out your complexion, adding more sebum where it’s needed and less where you don’t.
Jojoba oil is for people with acne prone skin, people who want to slow down the aging process, people with sensitive skin, people with dry skin or patches, people with oily skin.
Jojoba oil is simply a star ingredient, wouldn’t you agree?
