Me...I just like these three things and in the 19 years I have been making it, it never feels boring or dated. !!! And everyone who smells it is always wowed and wants to try some. It's so simple to make. !! Let me know how you like it !
I have been working with a new company called @hemp_needs who have developed two skincare products that are 100% natural and vegan friendly! I have been using the Hemp & Nuts Skin Repair Balm as a replacement for my eczema cream and it has worked wonders. I no longer have to use my eczema cream that contains chemicals that can affect my body such as steroids. So have nothing to do this Sunday? Hemp Needs will be at the @thedistrictdocklands Winter Market tomorrow from 11am - 4pm. The Hemp Needs team will be there to answer any questions you have and there will be some free samples to try! Come down to support a small Victorian business! ❤️✨🥥
What is one thing that you deserve? How about ‘Time to Take Care of Yourself’! As our daily rituals can sometimes inundate us to the point that we aren’t truly taking care of ourselves, as individuals, we have to slow down and focus on our health. This includes our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being! Chronic stress exposes our bodies to unhealthy, persistently elevated levels of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. Studies also link stress to changes in the way blood clots, which increases the risk of heart attack! It’s easy to try to be a superhuman, giving your all to your work, family and friends, but you are literally hurting yourself when you don’t put your health and well-being first! We create our bath blends, handcrafted, atop a foundation of ancient Zechstein magnesium flakes, before adding our house blended Non-GMO, certified organic hemp seed oil and Epsom salt, to further penetrate through the buildup of naturally occurring dead skin, toxins and muscle knots that form on/inside our bodies. Complete with dried eucalyptus leaves from one of our approved vendors at Detroit's famous and iconic Eastern Market, this lavender aromatic wonder is the calming getaway soothed just for your bath time needs. Even if you don't have a tub at home, treat yourself to a relaxing foot soak using our blend, as your soles will certainly appreciate the self-care and attention, especially after those long days! .
Hyaluronic Acid. This may sound like something you don't want to put anywhere near your face, but it actually holds the key to smooth, flawless and hydrated skin! Don’t let the word acid throw you off...it’s a natural wonder that is nothing like an acid as you know it.
Our own skin cells produce Hyaluronic Acid naturally in a bid to maintain moisture levels. But, thanks to pesky ageing and environmental aggressors, to name just a few things flung at our faces on a daily basis, those levels tend to take a bit of a hiding.
The substance works as a magnet for moisture, helping your cells retain as much of it as possible so that your skin feels and appears hydrated, plump and healthy.
Now for the science-y bit. Just a single gram of Hyaluronic Acid has the impressive ability to hold up to six (yep, six) litres of water. Add to that, a super smart ability to regulate that moisture within the cells, so as not to drown them and you've got one genius ingredient.
If skin is sufficiently hydrated, it feels super-soft, plump and pillowy and looks so much more radiant. When skin is hydrated, lines and wrinkles (even the deeper ones) appear diminished, so it is a great ingredient for those with ageing skin who are desperate to cling on to their youth (insert me 😂) It works wonders on everyone. 'Hyaluronic Acid works for any skin type, even sensitive or breakout-prone skin, as well as those with an oily complexion. Hyaluronic Acid also has antioxidant properties, which means it can act like a shield against free radicals we aren't in control of, like pollution and other aggressors.
Just one of our miraculous ingredients in both our serums, but wait till we uncover the other marvels that are just part of the formulation for our new CBD Revolution Serum!!
Gorgeous. That’s the only way to describe skin that has been fed regularly with ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS. .
These are the building blocks for skin, they feed and nourish and complement its ability to protect. If you don’t use them in your skincare routine I can usually tell! Skin will be dehydrated (even if oily), it will be crepey, lack elasticity, be dry and inflexible, as well as having fine lines. .
That’s why most people notice a difference quickly when they start to use an omega-rich oil. Not only that but you are protecting yourself from sun damage and in some cases even adding in an extra natural SPF. To your skincare routine. .
Massage it in for best effect. Massaging gives the oil time and aids it to be metabolised into the skin. It also boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage which helps with the look of skin and detoxification! Win win 🙌🏻😊
Multi oil by @awecosmeceuticals made it into my favourites box because it has the best of everything .
JOJOBA - the closest to our skin’s own natural sebum
RASPBERRY SEED - a beautiful rich oil enhancing suppleness and with natural sun protection qualities
POMEGRANATE a powerful anti inflammatory as well as reducing sun damage and even hyperpigmentation
HEMP SEED an oil that boasts a profile of omegas like no other - 3, 6 AND 9! And this makes it a superfood for the skin as well as nervous /digestive system. .
If you want to reduce sun damage, Age proof your skin, be free of marks,blemishes, redness, then you need to use an oil such as this in your daily routine. Even try massaging with a Kansa wand as pictured. For more info on that visit Awe’s blog. (Link in their bio) .
