BE MY GREEN VALENTINE
Love is a beautiful thing, and many people celebrate it at this time of year by pampering themselves and their partners. Many primp and preen for Valentine's Day, whether for a special night on the town or a night in. A whole slew of products are marketed to make us feel more attractive, but there's nothing sexy about having your hormones and bodily health messed with by chemicals.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner, a day to vow, renew and acknowledge your love. Stores will be selling traditional cards, chocolates and flowers. But let us remember, it is the day of love. Every kiss does not begin with a diamond. How about doing something different this Valentine's Day, something more in line with your eco-values? Perhaps wake your Valentine up with breakfast in bed, or do something together; cook, bake, exercise, work in the garden, just relax. If you believe in celebrating Valentine's Day with a gift, please pick a "green" present.

Makeup looks on the European Spring Runway shows from Elie Saab to Giambattista Valli and everyone in between featured dewy, natural looking skin. The buzz word is minimalism. Taupes and browns were used to create the looks. UK Vogue described it as "make-up artists shunned mascara in favour of a pretty, bare eye look, whilst flawless bases and conditioned lips had the models looking healthy and radiant."
I'm sure you have all seen the commercials and seen the ads for all the newest (and oldest) acne care products. They don't tell you the side effects. Drying, redness, irritation, and (gasp!!!) worsening of the blemishes you are trying to get rid of!
Some tips for helping to clear and keep skin looking healthy :
- Drink plenty of water - flush impurities before they reflect on your skin;
- Use appropriate sun block - stop damage before it starts;
- Avoid touching your face with your fingers - your fingertips contain oils and bacteria that can cause or worsen acne. Apply your makeup with brushes and avoid touching your face with your hands.
The trend is turning toward more natural skincare, why should your acne care be any different?
We offer many products to clear problem skin. Lime Foaming Face Wash
to gently cleanse the skin, Lime Cerasee toner
to rinse away any remaining impurities, Honeybush acne serum
to speed healing of blemishes, Manuka Moisture mask
to heal, and very soon a Pumpkin Mask
to draw out and purify pores. Pre-orders for our Pumpkin Mask are being taken now and will be shipped by the end of the month, if not sooner.
We've reformulated our Repair Elixer Night Serum to be gluten-free, removing the soy lecithin and utilizing sunflower lecithin instead.
Lecithin is fantastic and has been widely used in anti-aging products due to it's ability to penetrate the skin and act as a cell restructuring agent.
Unfortunately, people with intolerance to gluten and those with soy allergies are unable to tolerate soy lecithin. Now they can enjoy the hydrating, restructuring, soothing, and re-fatting effects of lecithin without the soy!
Sunflower lecithin provides the same results without the worry of GMOs or reactions. Sunflower lecithin is non-irritant and non-comedogenic and can reduce the irritation of other surfactant products. It also provides long-lasting hydration.
