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.

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.
Not all oils are alike, so taking a peek at the list of ingredients is definitely a good idea—quality is key. You want natural oils that are synergistic with the skin and work to address many different skin types and issues, Not synthetic oils, like mineral oil. Far too many oil formulations have those undesirable synthetics hidden in them—just because it says it’s an argan oil treatment on the package doesn’t necessarily mean it’s pure.
Step 1: After cleansing your skin, use a toner to moisten the surface, which helps the oil go through and the skin and really able to drink it up
Step 2: Apply four to five drops of facial oil onto your fingertips. Because face oils contain such concentrated amounts of nutrients, a little bit goes a long way.
Step 3: Gently tap the facial oil from your nose to your ears. pushing it into your pores, rather than just sliding them around on the skin’s surface. This will help your skin absorb the oil and make use of its benefits much quicker. It will spread out by itself, you don’t need to slather everywhere.
Step 4: Smooth from your eyebrows to your hairline in an upward motion; always against gravity. Continue tapping from your neck to your jawline until absorbed. Don’t forget your décolleté
For oily skin- use the face oil before moisturizer, dry skin- use after moisturizer

Are you also tired of your tired skin ? The answer is Face masks. Instead of using a face mask every so often, you should be using them regularly to really benefit your skin.
Masking takes the cleansing process to a whole new level. Only a good facial mask can help to draw out impurities that hide beneath the top layers of the epidermis. Some people say that their skin goes through a “detoxing” when they use a mask, because they actually notice the changes in the skin while this is happening. Masks are incredible at providing this deeper cleansing process, which leads to an improvement in the appearance of pores that you can see and feel. Who doesn’t love that?
3 reasons you want to apply a mask this weekend
1. When you remove the build up of dead skin cells that accumulate on your skin, it helps to unclog pores too.
2. Masks, can help stimulate blood circulation so you can notice a radiant glow and more refreshed appearance.
3. Masking helps all of your other skin care products work more efficiently. If you want your day lotions, serums and nighttime products to be absorbed by your skin quicker and deeper, then a face mask is a must. By masking on a regular basis, you can ensure that your toning, hydrating and protecting products will all perform better, providing you with the results you’re looking to achieve at a much faster pace.
Apply a Face Mask in 5 Simple Steps
Step 1: Be prepared to make a mess. If you’re going to apply a face mask while relaxing in the tub, you don’t have to worry about making a mess. You can cover your face, neck, décolleté and throat and just relax. If you don’t have time for a bath, then take the time to pull back your hair so it’s not near your face. Be sure to wear clothing that you don’t mind getting messy. Chances are, you’ll make a bit of a mess when you use a mask. But, hey, that’s the fun of it all.
Step 2: I always recommend starting with a freshly cleansed face. Use your daily cleanser to remove all of the surface dirt, oils and makeup before you apply your mask. This will help to ensure that you receive all of the benefits your face mask was designed to deliver.
Step 3: Using damp hands, apply your mask directly onto your damp skin. Never rub the mask directly into your skin. It should be applied like frosting on a cupcake. Extend the mask from your face, down your neck, décolleté and throat. Nothing worse then a young looking face and an old wrinkly neck, right?
Step 4: Leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes
Step 5: It’s time to remove the mask. Masks are designed to adhere to your skin. You don’t want to be too rough when removing it. Use plenty of water and a wash cloth to gently wash away the mask. Pat, don’t rub, your skin dry with a towel.
Here is what @organicbeautyreview had to say about the Sea me mask:
This is actually a really cool product. The most important ingredient is chlorella, seaweed. And seaweed has many benefits. It's rich in beneficial minerals, vitamins, amino acids and trace elements. Seaweed has a wonderful effect on any skin type. It's particularly recommended for mature skin. This plant has regenerative properties which remove dead skin cells and skin becomes fresh and taut. At the same time it possesses smoothing and tightening effect.
I do not disagree at all. I'm so amazed how smooth skin feels after. So refreshed and it's perfect to treat your skin to that extra glow. I'm very happy with it.
Face it serum is very light, also suitable for us with oily skin. Nourishing ingredients like chia seed oil, safflower seed oil, rose hip oil, vitamin E, sunflower oil and uplifting essential oils bergamot and geranium. Have a lovely weekend and may the sun be with you ☀️

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.
