Honey! And the Benefits For Our Skin

Honey or Money? I want both! But on a deserted island, a jar of honey would be worth all the money in the world to me. A cup of lemon tea with honey is heaven on earth. It is my favorite drink. Have it as a cool refreshing beverage in the summer, or a warm hydrating drink in the cold winter months. Delicious in taste, and so soothing for my throat and body. My favorite skin care product is also honey, apart from its incredible taste and aroma, honey is also great for our skin. Find out why?

Honey is Anti-Bacterial Used to Treat Skin Deceases and Prevent Infections
Honey is useful for various skin diseases. Honey has antibacterial properties due to its acidic nature and enzymically produced hydrogen peroxide. It is rich with ‘inhibine‘, the natural chemical substance that helps prevent the infections from occurring killing the germs on the surface of our skin. It works by absorbing the moisture out of the bacteria’s cell walls – most bacteria can not survive without the moisture around them, and therefore, honey has been considered as the good natural antiseptic for attacking various broad spectrum bacterial and fungal species.

Do You Believe the Lunar Cycle Can Effect Our Skin?

Do You Believe the Lunar Cycle Can Effect Our Skin?

Do You Believe the Lunar Cycle Can Effect Our Skin?

Written by Tiffany Greensdale

We’ve all heard of stories of mood swings, uncontrollable desires and crazy things happening during various phases of the moon cycle. But have you ever heard of the moon having a direct effect on the beauty of our skin? Let me throw a couple of examples at you and see if you agree with me….

Do you agree that sometimes when you  get a bikini wax, you are in complete agony and yet at other times it is almost pain-free? Or what about occasionally when you have a non- PMS linked food craving? In fact, just as bio-dynamic gardening recognizes the impact of the moon’s phases on growing cycles, so the moon effects our body’s natural cycles, too. Don’t believe me…… Keep a lunar calendar on your desk and start to observe the link for yourself.

For those of you that want to test the phenomenon, here are a few things you can try.

Organic Foundation Makeup Tips

Makeup foundation sits on the skin, covers most of the face, and we use more of it than most makeup items. Start to scan ingredient lists and avoid foundations that contain mineral oil and petroleum, because they tend to block pores, which may make you more prone to lumpy red spots or to little white pimples that break out under the skin’s surface.

As a shortcut, without having to read the entire ingredients list, look for the expression “non-comedogenic” on the packaging or one which is organic.

The Natural Instinct Brand is in Big Trouble

As consumers we should be able to rely on labels to provide accurate information about chemicals and other ingredients in skin care and personal care products. This apparently cannot be hold true for this misleading brand “Natural Instinct” / “Organic Instinct”.

You’ve fooled us all. You should rename your brand as “Chemical Instinct” or “Lying Instinct”.

Unless if you are wearing a low cut top exposing your cleavage, then usually your eyes are the first feature people notice when meeting you for the first time. So it is important to make the most in defining your own eyes by giving them careful attention to create the look you want.

The issues for eye makeup are similar to those for other makeup: do you want toxic chemicals such as mineral oil, petroleum, chemical colourings, or aluminium in your eye makeup? Or do you want something natural such as an organic or mineral makeup.

Natural Deodorant vs Chemical Deodorant

While there is no concrete proof yet that the chemicals used in deodorant and anti-perspirant sprays cause breast cancer, it may be wise NOT TO apply a mixture of chemicals under the arms and around the breast area for extended periods of time, as this could cause a build-up of toxic overload in the long term.

Deodorant sprays work by trying to destroy and reduce the bacteria on the skin and uses strong artificial fragrances to mask the bad bacteria smells. Common chemicals used include propylene glycol, parabens and triclosan.

Causes of Body Odour

Causes of Body Odour

Causes of Body Odour

Sweating is our body’s natural response to regulate body temperature and to release toxins from our bodies. However, the result of sweating along with bacteria may lead to unpleasant body odour.

Our bodies have two types of sweat glands; eccrine and apocrine sweat glands. The sweat released from the “eccrine” sweat glands is odourless made up mainly of water and salt. On the other hand, the sweat that comes from the “apocrine” glands (usually located under the arm pits, the genital areas and around the nipples) contain proteins and oily substances that bacteria can feed on and break down to cause body odour. In short, body odour is the product of bacterial metabolism.
