January 16th, 2016

relaxed girl with moisturized skin MJwxkHPO 150x150 Skin Care Trends for the New Year Include Detoxification for WellnessHeading into the new year, we know that wellness is no longer just a buzz word. Thanks to the Internet and social media global trends are instantly shared across the world. Skin care is no longer a luxury, it is a priority and can also lead to better health.

There are a number of overriding trends in wellness for 2016 including everything from the use of cannabis in beauty treatments to detox skin purging therapies.

According to one *report entitled, a “Green Beauty Barometer” 59 percent of U.S. adult women read beauty product ingredient labels prior to purchase, while nearly 40 percent intend to increase their spend for all-natural beauty products.  Last, 54 percent of the women said all natural skin care products were essential.

Following are some of the trends:                           

K-beauty: There is inspiration from ancient traditions like the Korean beauty market which recently launched “K-beauty.” Koreans are elaborately passionate about skin care.

All natural products: More than half of U.S. women prefer all natural skin care products. As the natural trend in skin care continues to rise, a recent survey has found more U.S. women consumers look at product labels to avoid certain ingredients prior to purchasing.

Forest bathing beauty traditions:  A Japanese concept, forest bathing encourages quiet walks through a forest to meditate the feel and sounds of nature. Medical evidence has proven long-lasting impact of forest bathing on the immune system. 

Detoxification and Skin Purging Therapy: Herbalix has been educating audiences about the benefit of skin detoxification for more than 15 years. Products such as the Women’s 80 Night Lymph Detox Program includes a free 20-minute consultation with each kit ordered. The benefits include ridding the body of toxins, and especially aluminum. You’ll know it’s working when normal detox symptoms appear which are simply indicators that the toxins are transitioning out of your body. 

Islamic mud or sand bathing : The Islamic world has been refining their nature-based healing therapies and beauty practices for centuries. Now they are being shared globally.

Medical cannabis: The legalization of recreational and medical marijuana in many U.S. states has deepened cannabis’ health value into wellness treatments such as incorporating it into massage therapy. Charcoal is another ingredient popular in some skin purification treatments.

Halotherapy: This dry salt therapy has been around for centuries, but the United States has only recently become familiar with its health benefits, including respiratory and skin benefits. It can be used in salt rooms and for dry salt therapy sessions or dry saunas.

TrendWatching says consumers prefer to build their own identities based on their own inclinations rather than fitting into a traditional mold, which ties in nicely to the fact that Herbalix Restoratives offers customized skin care treatments for various skin types. Learn how what you put on your skin really matters. Watch this Herbalix video about how aluminum and alum in deodorants can harm your health.

Do Your Lymph Glands Need to be Drained?

August 15th, 2014

Our human lymph glands basically exist in order to collect waste from our blood. The lymphatic system circulates what is called interstitial fluid or lymph to your cells and body tissues. Everyone has between 500 to 600 lymph nodes, which play an important part in the functioning of a normal immune system. Lymph nodes are the little bean-shaped organs of the lymphatic system. These glands can be independent such as those located in the neck and collarbone or they can appear in groups under the arms in the armpit or in the groin area.

Lymphimages Do Your Lymph Glands Need to be Drained? Located in the underarm area, the axillary lymph nodes act as a filter for bacteria, viruses and other disease-causing microorganisms. Divided into two types, superficial and deep lymph nodes, the lymph glands are essential organs to the human immune system.

A part of the lymphatic system, lymph nodes are key to the body’s immune defense. Lymphatic fluids supply unfiltered body fluids to the lymph node for filtration. The fluids are collected by the efferent vessels and emptied to the cardiovascular system. If you have swollen lymph glands, it is a sign that the node is fighting a viral or bacterial infection, or worse yet, cancer. The swelling from swollen lymph nodes or glands can sometimes be alleviated by massaging the lymph nodes to physically help the lymphatic system rid the body of the toxins. People often increase exercise or soak in an Epsom salt and baking soda detox bath. Others increase exercise to sweat. The goal of massage therapy is to speed up the detox process.

People who study the non-aluminum deodorant market have long suspected that alums clog the lymph nodes, and could be linked to cancer. The lymph nodes are also a site for initiation of autoimmune system responses. The size of lymph nodes is very important to determine various medical conditions. Lymph nodes can become inflamed, swollen and painful under certain conditions.

Detoxing Lymph Glands

There are a number of specialists interested in new products coming into the marketplace that can reverse damage done from using underarm antiperspirant products containing these toxins. One such company called Herbalix Restoratives (www.herbalix.com) makes the Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant. The company does not use any type of synthetic preservative system in any of their products. The Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant is 100 percent paraben-free, and it has no metals – meaning it is a non-aluminum deodorant – and also has no propylene, phthalates, emulsifiers, dyes, fillers, or other synthetic ingredients.

In order to abate any issues with clogged lymph glands, a number of medical professionals, and people are switching from an aluminum-based antiperspirant to natural and organic skin care products. Some have experienced a detox or lymphatic reaction including everything from rashes to bad odor to itching and red bumps. Others experience swollen lymph nodes when they stop using anti-perspirants and begin to use a natural deodorant. But not to worry, your body is finally getting rid of the pore-clogging, lymph node disrupting action of the aluminum salts caused by antiperspirants.

There is also evidence that a lymph drainage massage can also help to aid nasal and sinus congestion, and even allergies. There are people who use products that aid in detoxing aluminum from the underarms and lymph glands. They may have experienced increased body odor, or even an itching response. Swollen lymph nodes are not a problem in themselves but rather a sign that the body is working to get rid of all those toxic ingredients – including aluminum – that you were using under your armpits every day.

May 29th, 2014

Everyone shows more skin in the summer, so here’s how Herbalix Restoratives (www.herbalix.com) suggests that you get ready to face the sun’s rays. Following are some of our best summertime organic skin care tips:

1) Exfoliate for smoother skin

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells. This technique has been around for many thousands of years and it actually helps improve the hydration from moisturizers.

Herbalix offers its unique blend of coriander seed and kelp in a superior Scrub Bar made with fresh goat’s milk. This Herbalix Restoratives Cream Bar Soaps helps exfoliate dead skin cells and release impurities. Choose from the gentle aromas of two fragrances – Ceremonial Sage or Coriander. Both will leave summer dry skin smelling clean and fresh, and looking luminous. soaps2 Best Organic Skin Care Tips for Summertime

2) Lighten sun spots with strawberry, lemon or lime

When you get too much sun, over time and also with aging, some people get what we call age spots. To help diminish them, cut a large strawberry in half and use a fork or knife to poke the flesh and draw out the juices, then swipe it across your face in small circles. Leave the juice on your face for several minutes, then rinse off. This will lighten up any sun or age spots over time. You can get the same effect with a lemon or lime, so slice a fresh lemon or lime and apply the fruit directly to the sunspots for 10 to 15 minutes per day. The acid in the fruits will lighten the spots and also helps to remove any dead skin cells.

3) Keep skin hydrated.

226 Best Organic Skin Care Tips for SummertimeAfter you exfoliate, follow up with the Supreme Solution™ intensive body moisturizer to seal in moisture and support cellular regeneration. It has been carefully formulated using a very rich and expensive blend of pure, skin beneficial, non-RBD oils including: Almond, Olive Safflower, and Rice Bran, Avocado, Pumpkin Seed, Meadowfoam, and Carrot Seed, to name just a few.

“So far I have tried the moisturizer, both the stick and the cream in the beautiful blue jar. The moisturizer feels like velvet on my skin as I rub it in. Its scent is so subtle, natural, and light. For those of us who have difficulties with scents and who are sensitive to many ingredients, thank you from the bottom of my heart…” said one customer who identified themselves as S.V. in Maryland.

The unique combination of oils will hydrate your skin thoroughly. This formulation is extremely concentrated so a little goes a long way. It has been formulated without alcohols, binders, fillers, or emulsifiers, so it takes extra time to absorb.

4) Drink plenty of H20

With summer’s higher temperatures and more time outdoors, you can become dehydrated, which sometimes leads to headaches. Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of plain, filtered water every day. This will help maintain critical moisture balance of the body and it will benefit your skin tremendously. Remember that if you drink caffeinated beverages like tea or coffee, you need to drink even more water daily.

5) Use a No Added Fragrance Skin care Regimen

The summer’s UV light can cause brown spots, also known as photo aging, especially if you have sensitive skin. This results in coarse skin and wrinkles eventually, whether you have been sunburned or not.

NoFragrance Best Organic Skin Care Tips for SummertimeWhen sunlight comes in contact with skin damage happens with the stripping of barrier lipids, and this causes inflammation, along with the production of reactive oxygen molecules, affecting healthy cell growth, and the stimulation of enzymes that destroy collagen.

Travelers Can Be 99% Germ Free with Herbalix Organic Soaps on Germ-ridden Airplanes

May 23rd, 2014

Recent research published by Auburn University confirmed that the surfaces inside an airplane can serve as hosts to many germs for as long as eight days. Meanwhile, Herbalix conducted research on its triclosan-free, organic skin care bar and liquid cleansing products–such as the Fresh Goat’s Milk Cream Bar Soap–finding them to be 99.99% effective against germs. (Source: CNBC News)

After sterilizing six surfaces normally found in the cabin of an airplane such as the seats, toilet handles, trays, etc., the researchers intentionally infected the surfaces with several bacteria, one of which was E. coli 0157, which can cause severe diarrheal disease. This resilient bacteria lived for up to 96 hours on the rubber armrest. The study was partially funded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Researchers found that some of the bacteria survived longer than a week especially the more porous the surfaces, as indicated below:

• 2 days: Steel toilet handle
• 3 days: Plastic tray table
• 3 days: Plastic window shade
• 7 days; Leather seat
• 7 days: Rubber arm rest
• 8 days: Seat pocket

The only remedy is to follow good hygiene, wash hands frequently, or use hand sanitizers. Do not touch your face, and wash hands frequently, as it has been proven that hand washing with soap is the best defense against germs. But many soaps are made with harmful synthetic chemicals and additives, which can strip beneficial oils and irritate the skin.

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.

The Benefits of Olive Oil in Skin Care Products

June 30th, 2012

Olive oil has been a Mediterranean cosmetic and culinary staple forever. You might have read about it in history books –the ancient Romans used it in their baths to collect dirt and sweat.

Sadly, today we have embraced health and beauty products made from primarily synthetic ingredients. But, olive oil is prized for its lubricating properties for skin and hair because it is brimming with vitamins A and E.  Plus olive oil contains a triterpene called squalene that is highly valuable, which has antioxidant properties and is believed to inhibit UV damage.

Using olive oil based skin care products also help maintain and restore skin’s elasticity, and when used after a bath or shower, can help the skin to retain hydration by inhibiting water loss.  Herbalix Supreme Solution body moisturizers contains high concentrations of not only olive oil, but also skin nourishing emollients including sweet almond oil, avocado oil and rice bran oil (which also contains squalene).

The Herbalix Supreme Solution Intensive Body Moisturizers are quite potent, water-free moisturizers that are formulated for both men and women.  They are free of petroleum products, propylene glycol, parabens and other synthetic ingredients. Herbalix moisturizers deliver a heavy dose of lubrication to parched skin.  They are available in either fragrance-free versions or suffused with fresh and invigorating essential oils including clary sage essential oil, grapefruit essential oil, blood orange essential oil and cinnamon bark essential oil, among others.

Supreme Solution moisturizers are very intense, unlike most commercial lotions. In order to receive the full benefit, one must massage the lotion deeply and thoroughly to allow the nourishing oils to penetrate fully.  Once fully absorbed, Herbalix Supreme Solution Body Lotion will provide continuous skin softening properties for hours on end.

It’s important for your skin to look as radiant as possible.  Before heading out to the beach or any sun-intensive summer destination, try treating your skin to a natural, soothing and luxurious Supreme Solution Intensive Body Moisturizer.

Holistic Scalp and Organic Hair Care

May 29th, 2012

Most people, especially women, spend so much time focusing on skin care, but what about their scalps?   Usually, we don’t think about it until there is a problem.

For example, Seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff) affects about 12  percent of the population — and the reasons why can be the weather, diet, or stress,  but sometimes your genes play into it all.  It can be from anything that causes the excess oil production, and most likely it is from your genes.

The symptoms are when your scalp is red, and the flakes may have a yellowish tinge. The reason people get dandruff is because of an overgrowth of malassezia or fungus which everyone has on their scalp. It is basically from excessive oil production or sebum. The fungus digests the surface oil on the scalp, and that causes an inflamation that turns into the flaky, itchy, dry scalp.

To relieve the symptoms of dry scalp, many people find that they do better with less irritating, more gentle organic hair care products such as those found at Herbalix, such as the Shampoo For All Hair Types (Balancing) – No Added Fragrance. This shampoo has a clean, mild, aroma that comes from the healthy base oils, and it is great for people with sensitivities to essential oils or those who enjoy fragrance free products.
