Best protection against sunburn, windburn and the elements

Again, All you need is me balm proved to be invaluable when skiing in cold, windy and snowy weather. Best protection against sunburn, windburn and the elements. In the morning we applied it to our faces. All you need is me doesn’t clog the pores, it lets your skin breathe but locks in moisture. In the evening we applied it to our legs for relief of our aching sore muscles. Next morning we were good to go again. All the ingredients in All you need is me are anti inflammatory. There are only a few ingredients but they are all active and work in synergy. Castor oil, beeswax, olive oil, sheabutter, vitamin E, blueberry seed oil and rosemary leaf extract. That’s it. As it contains no water it won’t freeze on your skin like water based creams do. As it has a limited ingredient list, All you need is me likely won’t irritate your skin. Of all my products, this is the one I’m most proud of. It was created for my son when he was a baby. Now he is my big “baby” and (reluctant) model in this post 😊

Protect your face from harsh weather

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 :)

Super dry hands

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.
