Most of us know that chia seeds are great for our bodies when adding to food and smoothies for example. But did you know that oil extracted from chia seeds has incredible beauty benefits? Not only are they rich in precious omega-3 fatty acids, but they’re also intensely anti-inflammatory, calming and antioxidant-rich. What does that mean exactly? Chia seed oil is a great bet for restoring vital moisture, diminishing redness and inhibiting the appearance of wrinkles.
Those essential fatty acids also help to make the skin feel soothed and calmed, while giving it a supple and plumped up appearance. Another bonus to using chia seed oil on skin is its bounty of antioxidants, which help to protect the skin from signs of age, environmental, and UV induced damage. The oil is lightweight and non-greasy, so it won’t leave skin feeling oily. People with dry skin will love using chia seed oil for its amazing moisturizing properties. However, chia seed oil is actually great for all skin types—even oily, which can be surprising to many people. There is a common myth that applying oil to an oily skin will make it worse. This isn’t the case. Oily skin can really benefit from the nourishment that chia seed oil can give, ultimately helping it to control itself and to stop overproducing oil. Chia seed oil is rich in vitamin B3 and zinc, which means it balances oily skin and keeps the complexion clear Soft hydrated skin with a youthful look who doesn’t want that? This is why chia seed oil is the main ingredient in our award winning Face it serum. Top tip – make sure your skin is a bit moist before adding drops of oil on your face, this helps the oil penetrate the skin.

Dry skin? Get beautiful skin from within. As the weather is getting colder, many of us are experiencing dryer skin. Taking omega 3 oil internally as a supplement may be as good as or better than applying conventional moisturisers.
The long list of Omega 3 skin benefits make it a real skin hero, it helps skin maintain a smooth, elastic texture.It contains essential fatty acids the body can’t make for itself. These are incorporated into cell membranes in the the top layer of skin, forming a protective web around them, helping to stop moisture being lost, and giving skin a healthy appearance. But Omega 3 oils also work deeper in the dermis to control inflammation. Most people see noted improvement in skin health by supplementing with the equivalent of just one to two tablespoon of Omega-3 each day. Oily fish is one of the best sources of omega-3 essential fats, which act as a natural moisturiser and illuminator for your skin from within. If you have a lack of omega-3 in your diet it can lead to premature wrinkles and dry skin.
When choosing a fish oil, make sure you’re paying attention to the milligrams of EPA and DHA – the actual omega-3 content which is what replenishes dry skin. For a plant-based option, the omegas are listed as ALA, and can be found from oils such as black currant seeds or sunflower seeds.
Pictured is our delicious super hydrating Body buddy lotion with oat kernel oil. A perfect complement to omegas. When you apply Body buddy lotion in the morning, your skin is still soft in the evening.

The family is growing. Latest to join is Body buddy lotion with a delicious scent of sweet orange, bergamot and lemongrass. Leaves the skin hydrated and keeps it that way. It’s been a big hit with both men and women and the biggest critic of all, my 10 year old son 😉

Health and well-being I think also includes mental health. I’m sure positive thinking can be a challenge to everyone at some point. My sister got me a book about positive thinking. Every morning you are supposed to write down 10 things you are grateful for. After 27 days of doing this, miracles are to be expected. I’m on day 12 and even though I started this exercise with gusto, I’m running out of things to be grateful for. I’m down to being grateful for the cheese at my breakfast. 😳 But then my sister said that you are allowed to repeat, and I immediately started feeling more positive. So it’s proof that it’s working already 😉 What do you say, do you want to join me in this challenge? Write 10 positive things you are grateful for, every morning for 27 days. Would be interesting to see the results ☀️

Give Bees a Chance: Go Organic!
There are many reasons to buy organic and a major one is to help save the.
Bees pollinate a significant majority of the world's food, but they are disappearing at an alarming rate.
How does going organic help?
The pesticides used in non-organic farming can be lethal to pollinating bees. In some cases they simply kill bees, but in other cases they can make bees slow and drowsy, hinder learning and cognitive function and even affect reproduction. This can eventually lead to the collapse of the entire colony.
Herbicides used to kill weeds in non-organic farming also remove food sources for the bees, further hindering their survival.
Organic farming, on the other hand, avoids the use of these pesticides and herbicides, as well as artificial fertilisers. This provides a rich environment for bees to thrive, with a wider variety of plant life, which further supports other wildlife such as birds and field mice.
The Soil Association claims that plant, insect and bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms!
Buying more organic produce supports organic farming – the more you buy, the less demand there is for non-organic products, which encourages more farmers to go organic!
You can help protect bees by choosing organic food, grown without these toxic insecticides, and planting bee friendly gardens.
Have you wondered what a serum is and if you really need to use it?
So, let’s make this easy. A serum is a skin care product that you apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing with the intent to deliver a potent shot of ingredients directly into your skin.
The best serums offer highly-concentrated doses directly to your skin which makes them great for targeting specific concerns like wrinkles, brightness, acne or hydration. Important is the type of ingredients used and climate friendly natural vs synthetic.
Because active ingredients are more expensive than thickeners and other fillers, serums are also the costliest product in many skin care lines. The reason is because a serum is the workhorse of your ENTIRE regimen. Compared to a regular moisturizer or lotion, you're getting way more bang for your skincare buck.
When applied properly, a 1-ounce container of serum should last months, a few drops are sufficient to cover the entire face.
Unlike a moisturizer, serums are thinner which allows the active ingredients to penetrate quickly into the epidermis instead of lying on the surface.
Face lotions and creams are richer and create a barrier on top of the skin to keep all that good stuff in.

Summertime is a challenging season for many people’s skin. Thanks to the heat and humidity, sweat production kicks into overdrive and clogged pores become a near-constant struggle. For those of us with oilier skin types to begin with, this is a battle we face year-round. However, the warm weather months are especially difficult.
Take advantage of the extra time you may have during some lazy summer mornings. Get into a lovely skincare routine with a face mask and meditation.
You feel relaxed and your skin looks great with a beautiful glow. Summer time is masking time!

Facial cleansing is one beauty routine that must not be overlooked, due to its numerous skin benefits.
When it comes to facial cleansing, Milk is my all time favourite organic ingredient, as it provides real value.
Looking to learn how to use milk as a facial cleanser? We will delve into that in a bit!
What makes milk awesome for skin? Is it its moisturizing abilities or exfoliating properties, skin toning tendencies or its ability to even out uneven skin discoloration, milk is your best bet.
The main active nutrient in milk is the lactic acid. Lactic acid in milk serves as a deep pore cleanser. It cleanses out dirt and dust particles clogging pores, reducing acne, blackheads, whiteheads and pimples breakout.
Other nutrients include Vitamin A, D, B12, B6, Biotin, potassium and calcium. They all function in giving the skin a soft texture, removing wrinkle lines, moisturize, hydrates, and even out hyperpigmentation.
Ways to cleanse your face using milk:
Milk and rose water: This is one of the easy-to-make cleansers using milk. Just add few drops of rose water with milk and apply on your face. Massage on the face in circular motions for 1-2 minutes. Wash off with cold water to close open skin pores.
Milk and turmeric cleanser: This cleansing combination is a skin lightener and brightener. Turmeric has lightening properties and milk evens out skin discolorations. Using both as a cleanser would result to an amazingly glowing skin.
Simply make a paste with turmeric and milk. Gently cleanse your skin in a circular motion (avoiding your under eye circle) for 3 mins, and wash off with cold water.
Milk and honey cleanser: Honey has many antioxidants so you should add few drops of honey to your face pack to get a glowing and flawless skin. Instead of applying milk alone, add few drops of honey and then massage on your face in circular motion. If you have pimples or acne, add few drops of lemon juice. Lemon juice is a natural remedy to treat acne or pimples.
Milk and carrot juice cleanser: Carrot has beta-carotene that tightens, exfoliates and moisturises the skin. You can use this vegetable to cleanse your skin, fight wrinkles and make it glow with shine. Mix grated carrot or carrot juice with milk. You can add yoghurt to make a facial cleanser. Apply on the face and massage in circular motions. Leave for 2-3 minutes and then rinse with cold water. Milk, yoghurt and carrot can make your skin oily so you can follow up with a mild face wash.
