Five Tips To Maintain Your Summer Glow – Inside & Out

Posted by Anna Mitsios on

  

With fall in full swing, now is the time to ensure you are religiously maintaining your skin care and beauty regime ahead of the colder months to come. We have you covered on skin care and beauty essentials with our Top 5 beauty tips to help you keep that summer glow.

  1. Shed Your Layers: A good facial exfoliant can help remove dead skin cells from your face and body. This is critical as the weather gets cooler as this is the time when dry skin cells tend to proliferate. There is no need to scrub too hard – a gentle exfoliant will do the trick. If you are after a natural product that works immediately to brighten and soften the skin, our & Desert Lime Flawless Micro-Exfoliant is the product for you. This is a product that I will demonstrate to alleviate any concerns  about how "quick" natural products work as the results are visible after on application. This exfoliant is a softening and skin smoothing polish which uses coconut oil as a base. Its multi-active exfoliators including Wattle Seed and Rice Strawberry fruit extracts which boost skin radiance and enhance skin renewal.
  2. Lather Up: Oil based moisturisers are wonderful at protecting your skin from moisture loss. Whilst serums providing active ingredients to plump and firm the skin, a lotion is needed to seal in moisture and provide a barrier to protect the skin. Our No. 4 Vanilla Silk Hydrating Lotion is abundant in fatty acids along with Vitamins A and E from Coconut oil, Camellia Seed Oil and Cacao Butter. Our & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair Creme is a thicker cream, which is ultra-hydrating and absorbent but suited to more dehydrated skin or use as a night cream, providing ultimate repair and restoration.
  3. Glamorous Hands: Do not forget to give your hands some love. One of our favourite tricks for ensuring our hands are kept looking youthful is to lather them with coconut oil or olive oil or better still our & Velvet Coffee Body Butter. It is as easy as lathering the cream or oil onto your hands, popping on a pair of cotton gloves and waking up with ultra-hydrated and youthful hands.
  4. Gobble Up Your Glow: Our most effective internal glow generators in the cooler months include flaxseed oil, avocadoes, hemp seeds, chia seeds and coconut oil. These foods are abundant in fatty acids which work to nourish and hydrate the skin from the inside out.
  5. Drink In Your Glow: We need to be mindful of ensuring we have adequate fluid intake as the weather starts get cooler. However you can literally drink in a healthy glow. Carry a water bottle with you wherever you go, at the office have decanter filled with mint, ginger and lemon leaves and at home revel in herbal teas. Licorice, cleavers, calendula, burdock root are all wonderful for healing the skin and balancing hormones for a beautiful glow. They feature in No. 4 Golden Glow Beauty Tea. Our No. 5 White Chai Digestif Tea is also the perfect companion for cosy nights in.

Six Ways to Keep Your Sparkle This Holiday Season

Posted by Anna Mitsios on

With social events, entertaining and beach visits on our agendas, if there is ever a time that we want to be sparkling with youth and vitality, it's during the festive holiday period. It can be a challenge maintaining our healthy glow as this time of the year is filled with many unavoidable beauty depleting activities! A lack of sleep, poor diet, the stress of word demands, increased alcohol consumption and dehydration can often leave our skin and body feeling a little lack lustre.

Below we provide six inside out beauty tips to keep you sparkling this Christmas season:

Glorious Greens. If you are going a bit overboard with sugar and alcohol, ensure you are balancing this all out by having at least a bowl or two of greens. Greens, in particular bitter greens such as arugula, rocket, radicchio, rocket leaves, dandelion, spinach, chicory and mustard leaves are wonderful liver toners. They also help to increase the creation and flow of bile, the substance that removes waste from the organs and blood. Bitter greens will assist you in digesting your food, in particular fats so munch on a few leaves before your meal, and they will act as a great aperitif. Greens are also rich in folate and B vitamins which are essential for your body’s energy and detoxification pathways which tend to become compromised in the holiday season.

Intermittent Fasting. When eating excessive calories on a daily basis, as tends to happen during the holiday period, our hunger hormones such as ghrelin and leptin, can become imbalanced which reduces our ability to burn fat. Intermittent fasting for one or two days of the week during the holiday season can be a great way to reset your hunger hormones and increase your metabolism even if you are over indulging. Fasting may involve restricting calories on one or two days of the week and eating normally on other days or restricting caloric intake between a certain time e.g. between 12 pm to 8 pm.

Liquid Beauty Boosters.  Increasing water intake is something we all know we must do to keep our skin moist and dewy and our body’s detoxification and digestive system intact. Supercharging water with antioxidant rich botanicals makes it work even better for you. During the holiday season iced versions of our Edible Beauty No.2 Fountain of Youth Tea and No.1 Green Goddess Detox Tea are refreshing, hydrating and a treat for the skin and liver. To make iced versions of these blends, just brew them as normal and refrigerate infused with berries, sliced citrus and herbs.

Mask It. Late nights, sugar and alcohol consumption show up in our complexion. Sleeping masks are literally an overnight beauty fix when it comes to dull, red or lack lustre skin. We love using the Edible Beauty & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair Mask to boost the plumpness of the skin, reduce redness and bring back a youthful glow. Apply this all over the face in the evening as a thick layer and do not remove it. You will wake fresh faced and in awe of this miracle mask. The secret ingredients in this mask include B vitamins and Vitamin E which work to repair the skin, reduce inflammation and eliminate redness. If acne or sunburn is affecting your golden glow, use the Edible Beauty Soothe Me Balm as a leave on mask at night. Aloe gel, Cucumber, Calendula and Chamomile in this blend work to calm the skin, balance oil production and heal scarring and sunburn.

Sweat It Out. Whether it be hitting the gym, having an infra-red sauna or sweating it out at the beach, building up a sweat is a wonderful gift for your skin. It allows the skin pores to open which releases the build up inside them. Toxins that can clog pores and plague the skin with pimples and blemishes are purged through the action of sweating. Circulation is also increased to the peripheries and skin cells which boost skin cell turnover. These skin benefits only apply to mild or moderate sweating.

Bright Eyed. Giving your eyes a pick me up is as easy as a providing them with a caffeine hit. Dip cotton pads in iced black coffee or cold Edible Beauty No.6 Puff Away Tea and apply over closed lids for 10 to 20 minutes. Caffeine found in both coffee and our Puff Away Blend acts to constrict blood vessels to diminish discolouration and reduce puffiness.
