Today we’ll have a little chat about skincare with all natural products! For a few years now the topic concerning parabens, preservatives and aded coloring in cosmetics and food industry is all over the place and people started to read the little text in the back of the products with the ingredients. It might be just a trend for ones but it’s a lifestyle for others! I’m rarely pay any attention to the ingredients and if they are healthy or not. But this might not be so good.
It’s still interesting for me and I read here and there about the advantages of natural products and I can never say no to trying them!
It kind of annoyed me when it became s trend to talk about natural products because people started acting like they are all from PETA. But after reading a few articles on the topic, I became a bit more open :)
Everybody has heard of the miracles that natural oils do to your skin, right? The first oil I ever tried was argan oil. I used it for the first time about 2 years ago and ever since then I can’t stop using it for my hair!
But today we’ll talk about a different kind of natural oil that you may have never heard of :)
I’ve been using the plum kernel oil and exfoliant from Healthy Oils for about 2 weeks now and I’m impressed!
And why use oil from plum kernel?
It’s rich in vitamins A and E and has omega fatty acids 6 and 9 (they are also in nuts and olives). The oil moisturizes, nourishes and regenerates the skin and it also prevents from aging. It’s not comedogenic which means that it’s not going to clog your pores and if you use it regularly it can reduce fine lines.
It’s been proven that plum kernel oil helps with eczema, psoriasis and damaged nails. It can also be used instead of a night cream directly applied on your skin or ever as a hair mask!
The Healthy Oils oil is 100% natural, made from bulgarian plum kernels that have been strictly chosen.
I use the oil before going to bed in the evenings on a clear skin - it absorbs quickly and your skin doesn’t feel heavy afterwards.
And when it comes to the exfoliant - you may know the advantages of exfoliating 1-2 a week - if not, I’ll tell you briefly!
Exfoliating removes the top layer of dead skin. This way your skin looks smoother, your pores shrink and your tan becomes even. Dry and sensitive skin can be easily irritated so you have to be careful with your exfoliant of choice.
The 100% natural Healthy Oils exfoliant is made from finely crushed plum kernel and plum kernel oil - it’s gentle and it won’t irritate your skin! The crushed kernel delicately removes dead cells and the oil nourishes the skin and it doesn’t let it dry.
I exfoliate my face and body 1-2 a week after gently adding water to the product. It melts into a paste and it’s easier to apply on your skin. The effect is visible momentarily - your skin feels much softer and tenderer!
I can’t wait to try more natural products that I’ll be happy to share with you :)
Till next time,
