Beauty Secrets From the Sea

Since ancient times, people have been using powerful plants, minerals and salts from the sea to heal and nourish the skin and hair. Here are some of the most effective modern-day sea inspired products to help repair, heal and detox for a younger and healthier appearance.

The Seaweed Bath Co
NEW Ocean-Inspired Detox from the Seaweed Experts! 
Our skin faces challenges from environmental toxins, allergens and everyday stressors, which can damage skin and speed up the aging process. This new Detox Line coming in March is designed to detoxify, restore, and protect for smoother, healthier-looking skin. The Purifying Detox Body Washes, Exfoliating Detox Scrubs and Firming Detox Creams will be available in three fragrances. Enlighten – a light lemongrass, Refresh – Orange, Eucalyptus and Cedar, and Awaken – Rosemary Mint. In the meantime, check out their other amazing seaweed products! 

Alba Botanica
The gentle, yet effective Enzyme Scrub and Cleansing Gel from Alba Botanica both fight dull, dry skin to create a smoother, more even, radiant complexion. The secret is the naturally powerful Marine Complex, infused with sea enzymes and minerals, which works to stimulate cell regeneration to produce a more uniform skin tone.

Aria Starr Beauty’s Dead Sea Mud Mask
This mineral rich mask extracts toxins and impurities located deep in the skin layers, absorbs excess oils, and removes dead skin cells, dirt and toxins to reveal fresh, soft, clear looking skin. The secret is the natural silica found in the Dead Sea mud that attaches to dead skin cells to heal and repair without drying out your complexion. A great option for acne-prone faces!

French Girl Sea Spray
Achieve a beachy, sexy look with this texturizing hair spray enriched with 3 varieties of organic sea salt and nourishing essential oils. To use,  shake well and mist onto clean, towel-dried hair, comb through and scrunch. For “second, third…” day hair spray onto roots for added volume. For tighter waves, braid or twist hair and let dry overnight.

How to do a New Years’ Teatox!

Can you believe that it is now 2017?! As we enter the New Year, many are looking to make a fresh start and that is why the Teatox trend is hotter than ever! Perhaps nothing is better to help you cleanse your body than sipping healthful tea blends that can help invigorate your body from the inside out! Please make sure to check with your doctor before adding teas to your daily routine AND don’t be persuaded by the word “Teatox” in the tea title when choosing a tea. Too many people looking to detox with tea or “teatox” are stuck looking for a tea that has the word teatox on the label. Don’t be one of them! There are many great teas that are beneficial to your body that can be found at your local health food store! Here are some of our favorites to help you get 2017 off to a great start!

Restorative Rites
A Denver favorite, Restorative Rites teas are formulated by an herbalist and a nutritionist with herbs used in traditional folk healing practices. Their Beautifying Teas can be both sipped and used to steam the face for a luxurious facial. Make sure to check out Miss Tilly Rosalie’s Beauty Tea to clam, rejuvenate and pamper.

The Republic of Tea
Get Clean is a great herb tea for detoxing for those of us who may have had too much of a good thing. Feeling out of balance, a bit heavy or puffy? Then it’s time to get clean. This gentle naturally caffeine-free herbal detox blend helps the body as it helps to stimulate the liver, one of our natural cleansing mechanisms.

Kroeger Herb Teas
Based in Boulder, Colorado, Hanna Kroeger, master herbalist, created over 350 products, wrote more than 20 books, lectured extensively, helped thousands of people and has a great following. Her line of teas target specific parts of the body to help to detox and heal. For instance, her NRV Tea (Nerve tea) helps to rebuild exhausted nerves, which can be welcome relief for stressed-out bodies!

Mountain Rose Herb Teas
Mountain Rose Herbs offers a number of bulk, organic teas at amazing prices! Using tea compresses on the body is another way to Teatox. To make a tea compress, simply simmer some of the herbs in water and then use cheesecloth and an ace bandaid to apply the warm herbs to the body. To help fight after-holiday bloating, we especially like the duo of horsetail and mistletoe (don’t drink Mistletoe) applied as a compress to the outside to the stomach. Mistletoe compresses can also be helpful for varicose veins and horsetail massaged into the scalp can be beneficial for hair growth.

Pumpkin Hair and Skin Products

Besides being a staple in decorating and pie-making during fall festivities, pumpkins ALSO offer amazing benefits for skin and hair! Here are some of our favorite pumpkin packed products to spice up your beauty routine.

Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask
This unique mask is a clinically proven product to revitalize skin for a brighter and more luminous complexion.  Organic pumpkin rich in beta carotene combines forces with Manuka honey to lift away dull surface cells and resurface for more even tone and texture.

Acure Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner
This standout shampoo and conditioner provides moisture to dry and damaged hair, leaving it soft, manageable and ready to rock. Organic pumpkin seed oil combined with organic argan oil, argan stem cells, CoQ10 and organic sea buckthorn oil helps to revitalize and add shine.

DIY Organic Pumpkin Beauty Treatments
Organic Pumpkin oil offers enzymes to gently exfoliate skin and is a great choice for at-home beauty scrubs. Simply combine about 15 drops of pumpkin oil with 2 Tbsp sugar and 1 Tbsp Olive Oil and work in circular motions into skin to exfoliate and nourish.  The minerals and vitamins found in pumpkin seed oil infuse the skin with important elements that help strengthen and renew. You can also make an amazing pumpkin revitalizing hair mask by combining 1/2 cup Organic Canned Pumpkin with 2 Tbsps coconut oil and honey and applying to hair for about 15 minutes (make sure to use a shower cap to hold on hair) before rinsing. This is especially welcome for dry and damaged hair and we haven’t noticed any problem using this on colored hair. 

Natural Fall Fragrances

According to the Environmental Working Group, an average of 14 chemicals secretly lurk in common fragrances; some of which have been linked to hormone disruption and allergic reactions while others have not even been assessed for safety in personal care products.

Make Your Own Natural Fall Scent!
It’s easy to create your own custom scent for fall. Start with a great carrier oil like jojoba or avocado and a custom bottle to use to store your scent. We love the empty roll on and spray bottle options from Aura Cacia. Next, add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to the carrier oil to make your scent. For fall we love essential oil scents like Cinnamon, Vanilla, Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Geranium.  To get inspired, think of the scents you love from nature and work from there!
