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.

How to apply face oil

Over the past few years, facial oils have taken the skin care world by storm. If a great oil isn’t a part of your regular routine, then you’re seriously missing out— Face oils may hold the secret to achieving healthy, glowing, radiant skin—no matter what your skin type (yes, even those of you with oily skin!). Jam-packed with nutrients like essential fatty acids, vitamins, antioxidants and other goodies, they penetrate the skin to transform and protect—helping to build a resilient skin layer.
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

Say hello to the glow!

Say hello to the glow!
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.

Beeswax



Beeswax is an exceptional natural alternative to mineral oil. Mineral oil is made from petroleum, and I have a hard and fast rule about using the same products on my body as cars do on theirs. That's not to say that mineral oil isn't relatively safe in skin products, but sources like Yumyucky.com and Beauty Lies Truth claim that mineral oil can elevate estrogen levels in our bods, not to mention has been linked to climate change in its crude form. Whether or not you believe the hype about mineral oil, one thing is for sure: Beeswax has been proven to be far safer and more effective. Trust that.
Beeswax is brought to you by adorable worker bees that form the beeswax to raise their young in honeycomb cells. Although beeswax is processed poorly when ingested by humans, it has major skin benefits when applied topically. Beeswax carries antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that are essential in fighting chapped skin and bacterial infections that tend to affect us most in the dry, winter months. It forms a protective wall by sealing in moisture in our skin without smothering and clogging up the pores. Plus, beeswax contains vitamin A which has been proven in multiple studies to reduce wrinkles and age spots while re-hydrating and reconstructing damaged skin cells.
When you think of beeswax, don't just think of lip balm, because this ingredient has several different beauty benefits that can protect your skin AND your outerwear. These are just a few ways that beeswax can save your look from some harsh, winter blues.
Dreadlocks Maintenance
Dreads are arguably a fairly easy style to maintain, but leave your dreads in despair for too long and they'll start breaking off. To retain the tightness and smoothness of your dreadlocks, heat 100 percent organic beeswax in a saucepan on low heat. Begin at the root of each dread and roll into the wax, using the palm of your hand, until the dread is completely covered. There are many over-the-counter products that contain beeswax for waxing dreads, but you can find pure beeswax (which means not additives) for about six bucks at your local beauty supply store.

Skin Infections
Some people are more prone to bacterial skin infections then others, but even if you've only gotten one from swimming in quarry thats water turned out to be not so pure, treating a bacterial skin infection can be an exhausting task. One great recipe that was researched by the Dubai Specialized Medical Center in the United Arab Emirates for treating and relieving irritation combined olive oil, honey, and beeswax. This all-natural, topical treatment can replace petroleum based products that can take longer to fight against the bacteria. Try grapeseed oil instead of olive for a lighter formula with plenty of skin benefits.
