I thrive in the sunshine and worshipped the sun growing up (we all know how that turned out) and even though I am so grateful to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world – even the Gold Coast gets cold in Winter and my skin hates it!
Last week I walked into the bathroom and caught my husband doing the unthinkable in the shower…… that’s right, exfoliating his dry itchy skin with our organic Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub. I wondered why I was running out all the time! This product is seriously a must have. It’s a deep exfoliator with beautiful coconut oil and shea butter it creates a perfect drenching. This product is number 1 in my household, we all fight over it.
In our recent experiences, people or brands claim to have “organic spray tan solutions” – this frustrates us beyond belief!!
This is, we think, one of our most important blogs to date…
Last night, we got an email from one of our new spray tanners. She was so shocked at the difference in ingredients between our organic spray tan solutions and other company’s “organic” spray tan solutions. It is SO frustrating how many other brands and business out there claim to be “organic” – when really their products are filled with toxic chemicals and potential carcinogens!
You know its not the crap that happens to us in life that defines us, its what we do with that crap. I always try to turn it into a positive. Ohhh… I feel the pain first and go through the emotions of whatever has smashed me and I strive to be an OVERCOMER!
There is no other option.
I had a Basal Cell Carcinoma cut out of my chest, 5 years later one from my forehead. Then recently a penetrating BCC from my nose. The mistake I made was the tiny spot that would bleed on my nose had been there 3 years. I did have it frozen off however it grew back. I recently learnt that freezing BCC only has a 30% success rate.
Its calming, hydrating, and antioxidant properties are great for all skin types, even for rosacea, eczema and acne effected skin! Hyaluronic Acid (H.A) also has wonderful anti-ageing properties and is also one of the most effective hydrating ingredients for skin.
I had a moment today when I realised after 7 years of incredible growth in my organic company Eco Tan (that started out of my tiny kitchen) I still had my first 2 sales people!
As I looked at them, hugging hello to each other, I thought about their personal transformation and it has been truly monumental…
Not everyone comes along for the ride, but not everyone is supposed to… that had to be my hardest lesson knowing in my gut when to cut some people loose but also valuing and liking them at the same time.
Superfoods contain a high concentration of vitamins and minerals. Raw organic juicing of superfoods is a power packed way of optimising your health and vitality. I have found by just adding one small thing, what a big difference it can make. Raw organic juicing has changed my life and it will absolutely change yours too!
Do yourself a favour and watch “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”. I’m telling you, this documentary started a revolution. It follows Joe Cross, an Australian man, who regains his health by juicing fruit and vegetables. It truly inspired me.
Eco Tan Founder Sonya Driver just returned to the Gold Coast after visiting a single mother and her 5 poverty stricken daughters in Romania. It’s a beautiful story, worth a read…
So last year a friend of mine who travels the world helping and feeding street people, came across a woman with five young daughters, living in a village in Romania.
My friend thought he had seen it all… But this time, his heart was broken and the videos he shared about how they were living horrified me. They were literally sleeping on piles of rags with mice and rats. No water, no food, no door, no window, no beds. Nothing.
Lonela, the mother, was digging in the dirt for worms for 13 hours a day so she could sell them to fisherman as bait. The family were always hungry and sick.
I can’t begin to stress to you how important sun safety and protection is in Australia…
According to Sun Smart, Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. In fact, 2 in 3 Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70. I’m hoping these statistics help you understand just how important sun safety, skin checks and sunscreen is!
However, through my experience I have found sunscreen to be one of the most difficult products on the market. In my opinion, I think it’s because we expect it to do too much in protecting our skin against the great fire ball!
Aloe Vera Benefits on Skin are seriously endless! Even before I started Eco Tan, I have had a long love and trust in Aloe Vera. I couldn’t imagine life without this healing plant. You will even find an Aloe plant at the front door of my home in Queensland, Australia. I am constantly snapping of a leaf for a visitor, proclaiming all the benefits!
You will find Certified Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice in most of our award-winning tanning and body care products, such as….
