6 Safe Beauty Products For Girls

P.R.E.P. face and body lotion for girlsThis is a guest post by Carole Aponte co founder of P.R.E.P cosmetics, a new innovative line of natural skin care products for young girls.

Anyone who has ever had skin cancer or knows someone who has had skin cancer realizes how important it is to keep our children protected. Founders of P.R.E.P cosmetics Carole Aponte, MD and Kelly Barker with children of their own have created a line of skincare products that do exactly that.

In keeping with the American Academy of Dermatology’s recommendations for daily use of at least SPF 30 sun protection, P.R.E.P focuses strongly on sunburn prevention. And every product in the collection is free of parabens, harsh chemicals, and unnecessary additives.

It’s about time we get our pre-teens out of the cosmetic department at Walmart and offer them skincare and cosmetics that are free of dangerous chemicals while protecting them from the dangerous rays of the sun. Gather your girls and read on.

6 Safe Beauty Products For Young Girls

Our mission is to help you look your best today and for years to come! You deserve safe and effective ingredients that you can use everyday to help keep your skin clean, clear, and protected from the sun. Here are 6 safe beauty products for girls that we love!

1. SPF 30 FACE + BODY LOTION

Here at PREP, we think the most important product of your daily beauty routine is a chemical-free sunscreen. Sun damage is what causes wrinkles, freckles, and sunspots, and even being exposed to the sun just a little bit every day adds up over the years. The sun’s rays can even come through the clouds, so you’ll want to make sure your skin is protected every day, even when it’s raining! (CNN) We love our P.R.E.P. SPF 30 face + body lotion because it keeps your skin moisturized throughout the day, helps to curb acne breakouts, and contains natural zinc oxide, which provides built-in sun protection.

2. SPF 15 LIP GLOSS

Although our most important product of your daily beauty routine is a chemical-free sunscreen, it’s just as important to protect your lips. The skin on your lips is very thin compared to the rest of your skin and can easily burn or chap (Skincare News). Using our P.R.E.P. SPF 15 lip gloss can keep the sensitive skin on your lips protected from those UV rays. And because our SPF 15 lip gloss is full of safe, natural ingredients like beeswax and shea butter, your lips will stay hydrated and moisturized throughout the day.

3. PURIFYING DAILY CLEANSER

Every girl should have a safe and gentle daily face wash that she can count on to leave her skin feeling fresh and clean, without having to worry about irritation. In our P.R.E.P. purifying daily cleanser, we’ve left out harsh ingredients like sulfates and parabens that are known to cause skin irritation, dryness, and even breakouts (Livestrong). Instead, we’ve formulated our cleanser to be gentle enough for daily use, so you can wake up every morning with fresh, clean skin.

4. BODY LOTION

It’s great to keep your skin moisturized, but what’s not so great is slathering harmful chemicals all over your body in the process. Look for lotions that don’t contain petrolatum, oils, or parabens. We love our P.R.E.P. body lotion (coming out on June 15!) because it’s free of the junk. We believe in safe ingredients that you can use to moisturize your skin daily.

5. BODY WASH

Along with a great daily face cleanser and moisturizer, every girl should rely on a safe and gentle body wash that won’t damage her skin. Showering and personal hygiene is so important at this age! Choose a body cleanser like the P.R.E.P. body wash (coming out on June 15!) that doesn’t contain harsh ingredients like sulfates or parabens. Ours doubles as a bubble bath, too.

6. LIP GLOSS

Add a little pop of color to your lips with a natural lip gloss that doesn’t contain artificial flavorings, parabens, or petrolatum–ingredients commonly found in many lip glosses– that can cause allergic reactions or skin irritation. We just launched our P.R.E.P. lip gloss colors with natural vanilla as a safe alternative.

GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

You don’t have to choose either beauty or safety–you can have them both! By just taking a little extra time to read the labels on your beauty products, you can make sure everything you’re putting on your skin is safe, gentle, and effective. Here at PREP, we encourage all girls to embrace their beauty and their brains by choosing smart, healthy skincare products.

Stay healthy,

Best Skin Care Products For Aging Skin- 3 Proven Ingredients

vitamin b3 skin cream

We are always searching for the best skin care products for aging skin and unfortunately for us, there are hundreds upon hundreds of products to choose from.

The best way that I have been able to find the most effective products is by first researching ingredients. I start with ingredient research and then look for natural skin care products with those ingredients.

I love discovering new natural ingredients that turn back time. I especially love to learn about anti aging ingredients that are backed by science. Sometimes I may be a bit behind. For example, I just read a journal regarding “skin anti aging strategies” posted at The National Center for Biotechnology Information written back in 2012.

I happened upon this article while researching niacinimide, or vitamin B3, which is said to improve skin elasticity. Why was I researching skin elasticity? While my female ancestors live to be close to 100 years and seriously have very few deep wrinkles (comparatively speaking), they all have jowls; jowls that I have inherited just recently. Seems as though they just appeared one day and I am determined to find a cure. (insert laugh here)

 

From the article:

“It is the intention of this article to review the most important anti-aging strategies that dermatologists have nowadays in hand, including preventive measurements, cosmetological strategies, topical and systemic therapeutic agents and invasive procedures.”

It refers to some of the most effective natural ingredients or topical agents with anti-aging properties such as vitamin C, B3, and E. They are the most important antioxidants because of their ability to penetrate the skin through their small molecular weight.

Vitamin C, B3, and E are the most important antioxidants because of their small molecular weight. Clinical studies have proven that the antioxidative protection is higher with the combination of vitamins C and E than with either vitamin alone. Look for skin care products with a combination of these 2 vitamins.

Niacinimide (vitamin B3) regulates cell metabolism and regeneration and is used in 5% concentration as an anti-aging agent. In some studies, improvement of skin elasticity and pigmentations after 3 months of a topical treatment have been observed. On to natural skin care products for aging skin that contain a combination of these ingredients….

 

Oskia Nutri Active Day Cream

With Vitamins: A, B2, B3 (Niacinamide), C, D, E, F & P, milk peptides, prebiotics, omegas-3 & 6, Swiss apple stem cells, hyaluronic acid, minerals: MSM, manganese, magnesium, copper, zinc, selenium, and calcium.

A natural skin care company from London, Oskia uses only natural or naturally derived ingredients that have proven, visible results. Oskia products rebuild the skins nutrition to reveal beautiful, healthy skin that you can be proud of. I would love to get my hands on the Bedtime Beaty Boost however I can’t seem to find it here in the US.
Paula’s Choice Resist Intensive Repair Cream

This rich, luxurious treatment cream intensely moisturizes dry to very dry skin while fighting the signs of aging—especially around the eyes, neck, and chest. Its unique complex of antioxidants and retinol smooths fine lines and wrinkles and firms the skin by stimulating collagen production—all while protecting against moisture loss. Powerful skin-repairing ingredients repair signs of sun damage and assist with fading brown spots.

Paula Begoun is the founder and innovative force behind Paula’s Choice skin care and cosmetics. She is the author of 20 best-selling books on skin care, makeup, and hair care. She suffered from acne at a very young age and only found out later in life that the skin care product she was using contained acetone or in other words nail polish remover!

Her line only uses proven ingredients or what she calls anti-aging superstars that make your skin look younger and radiant including vitamin C, vitamin E and niacidimide.

 

Timeless Skin Care 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum

The Timeless serum collection contains high concentrations of hyaluronic acid and matrixyl that you won’t find anywhere else. All natural and paraben free, with vitamin C, vitamin E.

 

Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr

Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr offers 3 step skin care systems and beauty packs for all skin types. Amazing ingredients including Noni fruit (contains 170 vitamins alone), green tea, jojoba oil, rosehip oil, rich in vitamin C, lavender, aloe vera containing folic acid, vitamins A, C and E, is deeply soothing, smoothing and moisturizing for the skin, and sea buckthorn. Sea buckthorn contains Vitamins C and E, large amounts of carotenoids and is a potent antioxidant that helps repair and smooth the skin.

Miranda loves the inclusion of Vitamins A, C and E (also known as Bio ACE) KORA Organics products. These three vitamins work collectively as a team providing further antioxidant support to the skin.

 

Sevani C + Resveratrol Anti-Aging Elixir

A synergistic blend of botanicals and cutting-edge actives firm and renew while minimizing the C+-Resveratrol1appearance of aging skin. Vitamin C and MSM combined with resveratrol and the company’s signature Berry C blend offer regeneration of skin cells, improved elasticity, hydration and protection from environmental damage.

  • Vitamin C: enhances collagen, minimizes lines, wrinkles and age spots
  • Resveratrol: unsurpassed antioxidant protection provides firming and anti-aging benefits
  • Shiitake Mushroom: protects from oxidative and DNA cellular damage
  • Amla, Acai, Pomegranate and Goji Berry: high vitamin C content improves skin elasticity

  • MSM: feeds the formation of collagen and elastin, preventing wrinkles and redness
  • Peptides: stimulates collagen production to firm and renew
  • Sea Buckthorn: source of vitamin A & C, boosts elasticity

Dr. Al Sears Silk

I love Dr. Sears anti aging skin care products. He does not use harmful chemicals and his products are super effective, mainly because each ingredient on its own nourishes and supports your skin.

Silk is the all in one cream that moisturizes, repairs, and protects the skin. Silk helps reverse the visible signs of aging by combining the best of Nature and technology. It doesn’t just zap the free radicals that attack your skin. Clinical results show that it also increases hydration and promotes collagen synthesis.

Resveratrol is the key ingredient with 9 additional anti aging ingredients including CoQ10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE, L-Carnitine, Retinol, Vitamin E, and Hyaluronic Acid.

Silk

  • Moisturizes dry skin with natural avocado oil and glycerine
  • Nourishes dehydrated and over stressed skin with alpha-lipoic acid, grapes seed extract, and resveratrol
  • Preserves lose, baggy skin
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and promotes healthy looking skin
  • Promotes revitalized skin with a radical blend of antioxidants including resveratrol, sage, and chamomile

6 Best Natural Baby Lotions With The Least Amount Of Toxins

natural baby lotionsFor the last several years, I have been talking about the chemicals in our beauty care products and the importance of checking ingredients.

Here are 20 toxic ingredients to avoid when buying beauty care products. Unfortunately there are hundreds of popular brands on the market including baby brands that we have trusted forever that are loaded with ingredients known to cause contact dermatitis, to inhibit skin cell growth, and damage cell membranes; and cause skin rashes, dry skin and surface damage.

Ammonium lureth sulfate for example, found in most beauty products because of its foaming quality, strips the top layers of skin of moisture. Anyone with sensitive skin or disorders such as acne and eczema will see an immediate outbreak.

So, if these chemical laden products cause some of these skin disorders, just think of what they are doing to our babies skin. It would seem obvious that a babies skin is thinner and more absorbent than the skin of adults. There is no doubt also, that because their bodies and immune systems are still developing, babies and children are more vulnerable to toxins.

Don’t use baby care products or lotions that have toxic chemicals in them. Eczema, allergies, rashes, and skin sensitivities have risen dramatically since the introduction of baby personal care products. Take a look at the ingredients on some of the most popular baby care products. We clearly must scrutinize this group of products.

Lucky for us, times are a changing and there are many organic and natural baby care products popping up everywhere. In addition to new natural baby skin care products, many brands that our parents and grandparents swore by are now changing their formulas eliminating toxic chemicals. They have no choice-the demand is growing quickly.

I have read hundreds of reviews on baby products without toxic chemicals and most of them always come back to one thing……no more baby eczema and no more baby skin rashes.

6 of the best natural baby lotions with the least amount of toxins

ava anderson baby body lotion detailAva Anderson baby massage and body lotion

Ava Anderson had become truly disturbed at how consumers were unaware of the risks of common brands and how those who thought they were making safe choices often did not know what was really in the products they were purchasing. After months of research, Ava realized that she needed to create her own products. Through a family friend, she located a manufacturer with research facilities that could develop and produce products to her standards and in 2009, her product line was launched.

6 Natural Beauty Subscription Boxes Under $25

beauty sample subscription box

 

So we’ve all heard of sample beauty subscription boxes (I seriously did not know about these until a few months ago). Right? Me, a beauty care product addict. How did I miss this? It’s a huge business and when I found out about these awesome monthly boxes, I did some research. Did you know that there are a ton of beauty bloggers talking about the best subscription boxes? Did you know that there are hundreds of hours of videos on You Tube about the beauty box wars? Believe me, I watched them all.

Just in case you’re in the dark like I was; what are subscription boxes?

Companies send you monthly samples for a preset monthly cost, you try them, you like the products, you go to the website to buy them, it’s a win, win. You can get sample subscription boxes for just about anything from skin care and baby to food, wine, crafting and yes, even dog treats! Click here to see them all. You can pick the best subscriptions boxes for you. Beware the addiction.

Which beauty box is for me?

After deciding I have to get some of these boxes, I figured there must be some natural beauty boxes out there right? There are! But I am sure you all knew that. While you can find videos out there about every beauty box if you have the time, (it’s extremely addicting and extremely painful watching these women take 15 minutes to show you the box and unwrap the box), I am just going to list the best natural monthly boxes under $25, because for me, it always comes down to cost.

All of the following natural beauty boxes are under 25 bucks a month. In the end, I probably spend more than 25 bucks on full size products each week that don’t work and end up in the trash. Like I said, a win win.

Goodebox

What I like: you can browse the site and see what the products are for the current month and what they were previous months to get an idea of what you will be receiving.

Brands like soapbox, True Nature, Vapour Organic, Angel Face Botanicals, Zoe Organics, you can be sure you are getting the best all natural skin products to try. $19 per month.

The All Natural Face

A completely vegan company, this company offers a beauty subscription box for $15 a month including shipping. You will receive over $20 worth of products and a bunch of free samples. They mix it up so you are always getting their most fabulous products and new releases.

Didn’t find much too much info on this box; the website is a little tacky (just sayin) but it’s only $15 bucks a month and did I mention products that are completely vegan?

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box

This company offers 2 boxes, the Vegan Cuts Snack Box and the Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. I am only interested in the latter.

Like all beauty sample subscription boxes, this is the easiest way to discover cruelty-free brands without committing to full-size products or prices. Each month you’ll receive a delivery of 4-7 new products to try, ranging from unique cosmetics to luxurious skincare.

$19.95 per month

Here is a video of the January Vegan Cuts Beauty Box (torture)

 

With Love From Angela

A local business from Cincinatti, as in small, this company provides high quality, all natural bath and skin care products to your door every month in a fantastic subscription box. They feature many products that meet high standards and are all natural.

Some examples of what might be included: bath bombs, bath truffles, lotion bars, lip balm, sugar scrubs, foot scrubs, and handmade gourmet soap just to name a few.

They include their own products, along with other products that they deem 100% quality and all natural. “If we don’t love it first then we simply don’t use it

What I like: local business and natural products
If you love to take baths and you know what bath truffles are, this would be a great box to try.

$24.99 and free shipping

Conscious Box

Choose from three curated monthly box options: Classic, Vegan or Gluten-Free
Discover healthier natural choices for your everyday food, home, bath and body items so if you are only interested in natural beauty products, this box is not for you.

Although…. you may be tempted by the fact that a previous box contained a full bottle of Acure Organics Argan Oil and medical grade coconut oil. OMG!

Pictures of previous boxes here.

Kloverbox

The site boasts: “Replace every product you use with a conscious alternative!”

Join Kloverbox and every month they will send you the best natural, cruelty-free and organic beauty, health, nutrition and home products. You’ll get to try affordable eco-friendly products, handpicked by health conscious curators, so you can incorporate better products into every aspect of your life.

What I like: cruelty free, vegan, and organic; can’t get any better natural products
For those of you who are interested in other natural stuff like cleaning supplies and nutrition, this might be the ticket.

As low as 22.50 per month

I just signed up for the Goodebox because the products are natural and the monthly subscription is under $20. I won’t be doing a You Tube video (not in a million years), but I will be talking about the products each month so stay tuned.

Did you know there are subscription boxes for natural hair products? Another time maybe.

What are your experiences with all natural beauty subscription boxes?

Dermefface FX7 For Old Scars

dermeffacefx7oldscarsReview of Dermefface FX7 Scar Reduction Therapy

 

People have scars. But it’s the physical kind that they try to hide with make up and clothing.

To address this, there are scar reduction options, ranging from derma-brasion and laser surgery to steroids and filler injections that can flatten scars and make them less prominent.

Recently, the Skinception line of skin-care products has ventured into the market with a new product that capitalizes on their obviously considerable knowledge of natural active ingredients and patented peptides. Case in point, their anti-wrinkle cream, eye cream, anti-stretch mark cream and rosacea treatment.

Now Skinception offers Dermefface FX7 Scar Reduction Therapy to reduce or prevent scars and, as they claim, “fade scars like magic”. But does it deliver?

The Ingredients

Dermefface employs natural active ingredients and moisturizers with patented peptides like their well-known Pro-Coll-One+. In that sense, you can consider Dermefface FX7 as a hybrid of natural skin care and modern skin technology.

Of the more prominent natural ingredients, in Dermefface FX7 you’ll encounter beta-glucan, bilberry and various fruit extracts. There’s also hydrolyzed soybean fiber and very notably, a biologically active form of vitamin B3 and darling of the natural skin brightening industry, niacinamide.

The beta glucan is an obvious choice because of its long history as an anti-irritant. But it’s also an effective moisturizer and proven to stimulate natural production of collagen. Beta glucan also promotes health of macrophages – the cells that destroy bacteria and remove dead or damaged skin cells.

Getting back to that Pro-Coll-One+, we shouldn’t forget that it’s clinically proven to stimulate collagen by up to 1,190%. Combine that with the Symglucan, Pentavitin and several other active ingredients and Dermefface FX7 has the goods to stimulate healthy human collagen fibroblasts, slough off dead skin cells and encourage normal, healthier skin cells to take their place.

Results

A good set of ingredients is one thing, but it’s all for naught if they don’t work together and do what the manufacturer says it will do.

Fortunately, Dermefface FX7 comes with the Skinception name attached to its label, and as with most things Skinception, Dermefface delivers, in that it fades scars, according to the clients we’ve spoken with. And yes, it appears to work in as little as four weeks.

Dermefface FX7 markets itself as a treatment for both developing scars and those existing. Many clients using Dermefface use it for both of these reasons, and they’ve seen their scarring fade, though it tends to work better for a scar that’s still forming. It appears to work for existing scars as well, however, with visible reduction where people want it most.

The clients who’ve talked with us say they’re happy with the product – a non-greasy cream with a luxurious feel when applied to the skin.

Value

The Skinception name offers plenty of value. As a general rule of thumb, the greatest savings with any Skinception product tend to be had with orders of three months or higher, often with gifts or extra product added as incentive to go long-term.

We think that’s wise, because skin problems like stretch marks and scarring aren’t fixed overnight. Skinception products show noticeable results in a reasonable amount of time, but the most dramatic improvements can take up to six months.

Skinception offers a one month supply of Dermefface at $59.95 . Not exactly a bargain, but when you consider the luxurious formulation of Skinception products, which most clients rave about, seems a reasonable purchase. This includes both a loofah and a microderm exfoliator.

As with most Skinception products, the best value is for a longer term commitment. The Gold Package is a three month supply of Dermefface, the two exfoliators and a $25 gift card to Natural Health Source. The cost? $129.95

 

5 Natural Eczema Treatment Options

coconut butterI understand that eczema can be extremely frustrating and embarrassing. While I believe much of it has to do with poor diet or stress, there are many natural eczema treatment options available to you. The important thing to remember is to stay clear of irritating chemical ingredients found in many over the counter skin creams that claim to heal your dry skin.

If you have severe eczema, there are no quick fixes. You may already know this after trying everything on the market. It takes hard work to get control over your health; the most difficult getting control over what you put in and on your body. If you are ready to go the natural route, here are some treatments that may help.

Healing Eczema the Herbal Way

The Merry Clinic founded by Dr. Merry Manqun Li, a California Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist., believes in treating eczema from the inside out. Many of her patients who have tried every lotion and potion on the market to heal and treat their eczema, turn to her for an herbal remedy.

The Merry Clinic Eczema treatment plan consists of an herbal supplement to release toxins from the inside. This Skin-Detox Supplement helps strengthen the skin immunity to fight against allergens and pollution, and deliver necessary nutrients to support your skin health. It is a natural treatment used in Dr. Li’s clinic for over 15 years. Over 90% of her patients with have been relieved by this herbal eczema treatment.

Dr. Merry also recommends her natural topical cream to reduce skin inflammation and control itching, a dead sea salt bath to restore minerals to your skin, diet restriction including alcohol, coffee, spicy food, dairy products, nuts, tropical fruit, seafood and red meats, and finally stress management. Exercise and getting enough sleep are extremely important in controlling stress levels. In most cases, you can see improvement within a month.

Visit the Merry Clinic for a free online consultation.

Reduce Eczema with Omega 3’s

It has been scientifically proven through clinical research that individuals with eczema appear to have deficiencies in essential fatty acids. If you can’t get enough of this good fat in your diet, it may help to supplement.

Dr. Weil suggests that a person take gamma—linolenic acid (GLA). This unusual fatty acid is found in evening primrose oil, black currant oil and borage oil but is very hard to come by in the diet. GLA appears to have nourishing effects on skin, hair, and nails. Take 500 mg twice a day and expect to wait six to eight weeks to see results.

Shirley Lipschutz-Robinson of Shirley’s Wellness Café, who suffered from painful eczema also believes that omega 3’s were a large part of her recovery. Her son’s pediatrition believed that her eczema was caused by leaky gut syndrome and a deficiency of omega 3’s and suggested she take 2 to 3 Tbs. of flax oil daily and with that, she saw a dramatic improvement. She is also a proponent of a raw food diet and claims that it changed her health drastically.

Healing Eczema with Diet

There are many foods that trigger eczema from the inside however it’s even more important to know which foods can heal and detox your body from the inside. There are hundreds of books on the topic but you may need a little coaching. It’s not easy to change your diet and this is where Eczema Natural Healing can help.

You may need a coach to guide you in sticking with a healthy diet as described at the website in the Eczema Diet section. Maybe you need help deciding which whole food supplements are right for you. Consultation is free through email and they will recommend diet and natural supplements based on your health history.

The diet page has a tremendous amount of information about how to reverse eczema through the foods you choose to put in your body. Learn about eczema food allergies and removing them, along with examples of what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

If you do nothing else for your skin health, start juicing. Juicing is quick and easy especially for those that don’t have the time to think about planning meals. Juicing vegetables is the most important meal in healing eczema quickly. Learn more about juicing here.

Take Charge of Your Eczema With Knowledge

There is a new product available on the eczema market and it’s not a new fad. Eczema Free is a new ebook to help you learn to heal yourself. This book is a combination of medical research about eczema and the most effective natural alternative treatments known today.

You will learn which allergies and irritants are triggering these outbreaks first, how to repair your body from the inside, and finally, the best homeopathic remedies to keep your skin healthy and free of eczema without dangerous prescriptions and chemical laden eczema freecommercial skin creams.

This book is not about reacting to eczema flare ups; it’s about treating it before the skin becomes inflamed, thus ending the cycle.

Eczema Free isn’t just for adult eczema sufferers. The parents of children with eczema will find it extremely beneficial in not only soothing their child, but also preventing the onset of adult eczema later. The parent learns how to precisely adapt the adult solution for their child. There are even tips to help prevent eczema in infants who are predisposed to the condition.

Although the book contains amazing skin remedies to soothe irritated skin, it is not for those who want “instant results” which seldom work anyway. It is for those who are willing to commit time to following the program through making diet and lifestyle changes.

Relieve eczema symptoms with a homemade cream

And finally, if you have a mild case of eczema and looking for topical relief try a natural homemade cream instead of buying expensive over the counter creams to relieve dry, itchy skin. Here are 2 of my favorites that I found on pinterest.

From DIY confessions:

HOMEMADE ECZEMA CREAM/SKIN MOISTURIZER

1/4 cup of oats
3/4 cup of coconut oil
Few drops of rosemary oil {optional}
1 tbsp of olive oil

  • Finely grind the oats to a powder/flour consistency and set aside using a blender or food processor.
  • Over a low heat, melt the coconut oil in a pan until it has a liquid consistency.
  • Add in a few drops of Rosemary Oil.
  • Add ground oats in the pan and mix until well blended.
  • Pour the olive oil into the mixture until blended.

Once all ingredients are mixed, remove from heat and pour into a small container. Let it harden for several hours. Love this for dry skin and it was the easiest recipe I could find.

From Beauty Secrets Revealed:

Only a few oils and your and your eczema can be cleared in days. This cleansing oil can be made at home and is also used for acne and acne scars. Amazing isn’t it? Natural oils will not block pores but will thoroughly clean and pull out dirt and impurities while leaving you with soft, glowing skin.

oil cleansing for eczemaECZEMA OIL CLEANSER

2 Tbs. Jojoba Oil
2 Tbs. Evening Primrose Oil
½ Tsp. Neem Oil
10-15 Drops of Seabuckthorn Oil

Blend the oils together, rub in the palm of your hands and apply to face. Massage for 5 minutes. Dip a facecloth in hot, steamy water, place over face and let sit until cool. Gently wipe your face (no need to rinse). Do this 2-3 times.

You can order organic oils here or at your local health food store.


Skin-E-Care (B2)

What is bioeffect egf serum

The growing demand for more effective beauty products has seen a massive influx of companies offering products “proven by science”. Consumers today are more savvy and skeptical than ever before and know better than to listen to hype without the science to back it. Bioeffect EGF Serum is one skin care product backed by science. The boring details…

Sif Cosmetics, founded by Dr Bjorn Orvar, and based in Iceland develops skin products that contain natural cellular activators that are said to support the skin’s cell activation and renewal. The company says that 17 per cent of Icelandic women use its products.

The company uses EGF, which stands for Epidermal Growth Factor. The cellular activators in BIOEFFECT are produced with a plant system whereby proteins are produced in the genetically modified seeds of barley plants. All other companies that use cellular activators in their skin care products use proteins produced in genetically modified bacteria, hamster cells or yeast. By producing the EGF cellular activator in plants, it is possible to achieve an unparalleled level of activity and purity.

Bioeffect is pure skin care built on the principles of pure science and pure beauty. The company’s biotechnology methods cut out the risk of including bacterial endotoxins or human infectious agents in the active EGF ingredients and their formula is combined with only the purest essential ingredients. That means NO preservatives, fragrances or unnecessary chemicals. Just truly effective pure and clean skin care products.

What Can EGF Serum do for your skin?

This rejuvenating skin serum is made using green biotechnology to harness the power of the skin’s own renewal mechanisms so that the skin naturally heals itself.

By applying the EGF Serum onto skin, it is possible to fix and/or slow down the biological processes of aging and increase production of elastin and collagen. Here is what is what it can do for your skin:

Bioeffect egf serum reviews

“In the never-ending quest for radiant skin, I tried out the BIOEFFECT EGF Serum for the first time four months ago and I have not looked back since – I am a total convert – it really has made my skin look fresher and glowier! I am now also using the DAYTIME Cream, which I think works really well with the Serum.”

“I’d heard a lot of great things about the serum but wasn’t expecting a miracle. I was so wrong! My skin has never felt or looked more radiant. Within a few days of using the Serum, my skin tone was more even and people starting commenting on my ‘healthy glow’. After a couple of weeks, the discoloration from too much exposure to the sun had all but disappeared and my skin felt plumper and younger. I have now introduced the Daytime Cream and the Body Intensive into my daily regime and am loving the results!”

“BIOEFFECT has been a great discovery for me. I have been using this product for over a year and now a real devotee. I have experienced amazing results and everyone comments on how young my skin looks. Before I started using the products I was a bit skeptical, having tried so many high end skincare lines before, but for the first time I feel like I have found a product that really does work and makes a real and noticeable difference to my skin!’
