Ten Natural Skin Care Tips for the New Year

December 16th, 2012

We live in a world that has an environment filled with toxins. In order to have beautiful, flawless skin, you can start by following these ten natural skin care tips from Herbalix Restoratives which will help your skin survive in the New Year. Doctors recommend organic skin care products from Herbalix.

1) Protect your skin from the sun. Avoid being outdoors in the sun from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and always stay in the shade.
2) Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with long sleeves and pants. Wear a brimmed hat, and sun glasses. Look for protective clothing that is designed to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays.
3) Disinfect and treat wounds to the skin. Even a tiny cut can become seriously infected. Wash the wound with warn soap and water, then treat with an antibiotic ointment. If the wound remains red and swollen and does not begin to heal, consult your doctor.
4) Never start to smoke cigarettes; quit if you smoke already. Smoking is bad for your lungs and heart, but it is also the cause of wrinkles. It constricts the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of your skin. This ultimately decreases blood flow and depletes the skin of nutrients and oxygen. Smoking also damages the elastin and collagen fibers of your skin. Squinting your eyes and pursing your lips while smoking also will increase wrinkles.
5) Conduct the proper cleansing of skin. Cleanse the face with a mild facial soap like goats milk soap from Herbalix. Make sure to cleanse the entire face, even your neck.
6) Apply moisturizers after a bath or shower. Your skin will absorb the moisturizer better when it is a bit damp and moist just after bathing. Moisturizers help keep skin supple and wrinkle-free.
7) Eat for better skin health. Make sure to get plenty of water, and eat green leafy vegetables, fruits, and fish. This diet makes for healthy glowing skin, and plenty of water will help cleanse the toxins out of your body and even your skin.
8 ) Apply facial masks regularly. Choose one that is right for our skin type from oily to dry.
9) Treat young versus middle-age skin differently
10) Use organic skin care products like Herbalix Supreme Solution Intensive Body Moisturizer.

Natural Skin Care Trends for 2013

December 2nd, 2012

One fairly odd skin care trend for 2013 is a “Nightingale Poo” treatment which has beneficial enzymes in the bird’s feces. Lovely! This treatment can be used to exfoliate and help rejuvenate the skin, and is just one of the many new concepts surrounding natural skin care products. However, this is probably one we would not recommend. However, there is huge growth in the natural and organic skin care and cosmetic industry, as evidenced below.

Mintel, a market research firm, did a forecast back in 2010 showing that the skin care future would be bright with sales projected to increase from $4.35 billion in 2009 to $4.97 in 2013 after economic recovery in the United States and globally. The firm also said that the biggest year on year growth would take place in 2013 at 4.9 percent.

The latest trends today in cosmetics and skin care involve new projection motion sensor technologies. For example, in the Asia Pacific where space is limited, marketers are using technology to target the consumer and bring them into the buying experience. First they will track to find out if you are a man or a woman, and you may hear and see water, then when you walk away this water turns into a trickle.

New technology in Brazil projects images of real live people in digital form onto a screen featuring products along the side. If you are a customer, you would simply point at the product you wish to try, then use your finger to pretend to apply lipstick, and it will suddenly appear on your lips in the image on the mirror.

When it comes to natural skin care products, in 2013 the trends will continue for pure organic skin creams, and serums that support skin cell regeneration. Detoxification creams will become more and more popular – even those that help target belly fat for weight loss – such as Belly Stripper. One detoxing product is called the Herbalix Cleansing Detox Deodorant, which cleanses and deodorizes while you sleep, removing any buildup of metals like aluminum caused from antiperspirants. This ultimately supports healthy lymphatic flow, and ultimately reduces underarm odors altogether.
