When your lymphatic system is stagnant, it can show up on your skin. The lymphatic system assists with the expelling of toxins. It lies just beneath your skin. If it is not working as it should or clogged, your skin may suffer from acne, loss of elasticity, premature aging and other skin conditions. The lower body gets a head start in the morning as we get up to walk around and move. To get the circulation going for the upper body try this: clasp your hands behind your head so your elbows stick out. Now in a pumping motion put the elbows together in front of you for a count of 30-50 times. Other ways you can kickstart the system is to dry brush your skin and jump on a trampoline or maybe doing the chicken dance 😉
Maybe you are doing all the right things: cleansing, exfoliating, masking, moisturizing and spf’ing and your skin is still not glowing. A serum could be exactly what your skin needs. Serums are thinner than traditional moisturizers and contain higher concentrations of active ingredients. They absorb quickly, are soothing and nourishing for sensitive skin, hydrate skin, prevent scars and blemishes, minimize breakouts, protect your skin from free radicals, boost collagen and the ingredients in Face it serum are all anti inflammatory. Start with Sea me mask and make sure you leave your skin damp after washing off the mask, so the serum can be absorbed deeply into your skin. Follow with a moisturizer like Make my day cream to seal in the serum. Our award winning Face it serum is high performing with pure organic oils.
Ps. right now we have a 50% discount on Sea me mask for a limited time
Be aware of the humidity changes in the climate because that has an impact on your skin’s needs. The colder the temperature, the dryer the air. This means that during cold weather the skin tends to loose moisture when it evaporates into the cold air. To prevent this moisture loss it's important to use an oil, that locks in moist into the outer layers of the skin. When weather goes into spring, or warmer climate, the humidity levels increases in the air. This is why our skin feels less dry in warmer, more humid climates. Then adapt your routine to decrease the amount oil used. In daytime our soft Make My Day. This cream is excellent during sunnier times as the Algica in it acts as a uv filter. This one does the trick by itself, in warmer climate. Many of you choose to use the cream during the day and the oil over night. Just keep some attention to what your skin is telling you it needs and adapt the amount of oil contra cream according to what feels is giving you the most comfort. 💚

We chose to make Chia seed oil the main ingredient in Face it serum for many reasons. Chia seed oil is the beautiful oil you get when you press the tiny seeds. It is rich in omega 3 fatty acids, loaded with unusually high levels of phytonutrients and antioxidants. The fatty acids promote a healthy plump look for your skin. In fact, Chia seeds have more than 30% cell protecting antioxidants than blueberries. It moisturizes skin, protects against skin problems like eczema and acne. Chia seed oil reduces fine lines and appearance of wrinkles. Face it serum is formulated with the finest blend of pure organic oils. It promotes cell renewal, stimulates new collagen production and helps improve skin tone, texture and pigmentation. Natural ingredients work in synergy with each other and become even more powerful. Platinum award 🥇 winner!

Have you thought about a peeling facial treatment but the downtime with flaking skin puts you off? Regular use of the Sea me mask will give you similar results over time without the flaking. We’ve added masses of chlorella (an algae) in the recipe which tightens skin, improves production of collagen, stimulates cells to produce at a faster rate and acts as a skin healer (goodbye acne). Apply a thick layer to your face, neck and décolleté, wash of after 20 minutes for instant radiant results. Chlorella also improves overall skin tone and helps to diminish the signs of aging. I always also add Sea me mask to my head for a scalp massage (best hair day ever) A tip is if you wake up with puffy under eyes, apply a thick dollop of Sea me mask as an under eye mask. Gently remove after 20 minutes with a wet cloth. Et voila, reduces puffiness significantly 👍
Oats are not just great for breakfast. 🥣Oat based creams 🧴are often recommended by skin therapists for various skin conditions. The antioxidant, anti inflammatory ingredient found only in oats, called avenanthramides is why oat based skincare is so good at soothing itching and irritated skin.

Bonus is the delicious citrus scent 😋 We still have our autumn SALE on trueorganicofsweden.com!
At times it’s easy to neglect our skin below the neck and just give attention to our faces. Especially in winter times when we can cover up.
