The solution for super dry hands.
This evening ritual will bring relief to very dry hands.
Apply All you need is me balm to your hands at bedtime.
Don’t rub it in too much. Let the beeswax which is still alive start it’s process. Natural ingredients work in synergy with each other and therefor become much more powerful together.
Wake up to soft and smooth hands
So, what’s in it? What makes it so great?
Castor oil is a versatile vegetable oil pressed from the castor bean. It smooths flaky skin, provides a barrier on the skin and protects against moisture loss. We also included beeswax in All you need is me balm.It contains natural emulsifiers which help to retain moisture in the skin and forms a protective layer against irritants to the skin. The reason we included olive oil is that it’s an unbeatable moisturizer that keeps the skin soft and supple while being loaded with nutrients. We added Shea Butter as the concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids will work wonders for dry skin. Vitamin E as it is calming and a real “workhorse” of a vitamin. Blueberry seed oil is a hero ingredient in the All you need is me balm. Rich in essential fatty acids and phytonutrients, one of the most potent antioxidants great for dry, cracked and scaly skin.
Keeping skin moisturized prevents dry skin and all symptoms that come with it.
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.

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.
