Pining for Something New?

 

 

Let me tell you, when I discovered the goodness of fresh Pineapple it changed my life. Suddenly I had a tasty addition to my morning smoothie, a new mixer for my Friday night beverage and a delicious add-on in my fruit salad. But what really changed my life was discovering the incredible things it could do for my skin.

Organic Pineapple extract is a hugely underrated ingredient in certified organic skincare. Not only does it smell absolutely delicious, it also has an active enzyme called Bromelain, which helps exfoliate and promote healthy, shiny skin. So, when we started to get ready for the launch of our new Super Fruit Toner, you can imagine my excitement.

This refreshing, multi-active botanical vitamin A, B & C booster mist purifies, refines and tones to leave you with your healthiest skin ever. Packed with natural AHA’s, it will help to gently exfoliate, clear out pores and regenerate your complexion. It’s Certified Organic, vegan, cruelty free and non-comedogenic – this vitamin boosted toning mist will give you clearer, calmer skin, while brightening, balancing and hydrating.

Organic Pineapple extract and Kakadu Plum are two of the key ingredients in our Super Fruit Toner, giving your skin the breath of fresh air, it needs. These organic super fruits provide your skin with a boost of vitamins, in particular Vitamin C, which is known for being a skincare powerhouse. Vitamin C can assist in dramatically brightening and evening your skin tone and can also help to restore hydration and reduce the appearance of ageing. Kakadu Plum actually contains the world’s highest source of Vitamin C. With the addition of natural Hyaluronic Acid for extra moisture and organic Aloe Vera to help reduce inflammation, you can count on your skin being softer, clearer, brighter and smoother.

Best of all is the super simple application method. Just spritz onto your face morning and night after cleansing and let your skin soak up all of the goodness. We’d recommend using it together with our Super Citrus Cleanser, with its powerful anti-inflammatory properties and dose of natural AHAs work together with the Super Fruit Toner to ensure your complexion is feeling and looking better than ever.

Give your face a spritz, put your feet up and enjoy a tasty Pineapple smoothie knowing your skin is getting the nourishment it deserves. Whoever would have guessed that your best skin was only a spray away?

Our Super Fruit Toner is available now online and organic and health food stores and in ALL Myer stores.

Are pore size products making you poor?

Pores! The ever-growing market of products “claiming” to shrink pores may actually make you poor. I mean seriously, the market is filled with products making claims, not just for pores but everything under the sun! So are pore size products making you poor?

So how do we make sure we know what to look for?

What even are pores? Pores are all over your body, two types; sweat pores and oil pores. They are small openings in the skin under your hair follicle, which your glands beneath can pass through particles. Pore’s can be larger in certain areas of your body, especially the face; forehead and nose are problem areas for most. Like the rest of your body, each part plays an important role, so like them or not, your pores are here to help your body push oil to the surface and protect your skin.

Pore size is largely due to genetics, we all have them and we all need them, but what affects the size of them? And can we shrink them? I mean really shrink them?

Put simple, anything that affects the collagen of your skin is going to weaken the elasticity and support of your glands. Culprits for the appearance of pores or the damaging of skin sebaceous glands (under the pores) are sometimes small easy things we can avoid, however not a lot of people know these easy avoidances. So yes, science says you can’t actually shrink pore size, however you can make then appear smaller

However, (We all love that word after bad news right) there is hope! To really change the ‘appearance’ of pores; the key to keeping them small is keeping them clear. This may be the reason why brands claim that their product shrinks pores, when in actual fact it clears them.

Yet you really need to make sure what you are using is really clearing them with natural ingredients, rather than artificial synthetic ingredients that strip the skin of it’s natural oils.

During the day be sure to wear as light a possible coverage with SPF ingredients that actually work, numero uno – Zinc! So here you go, secrets out; avoid the sun if you can, if you can’t which lets face it, if you live in Australia like me it’s pretty hard to avoid. UV rays, squeezing pimples, dead skin cells and trapped sebum all contribute to damaging and /or widening pores.

SO, be very wary of “false claims” that a product shrinks pores and stick to natural products that:

A: exfoliate, reducing the amount of dead skin cells and

B: really give your skin a good clean naturally without stripping the natural sebum under your pores.

Make sure to cleanse before bed, washing away a days worth of dirt and oil build up in the pores is really important before beauty sleep.

A perfume called ‘HEADACHE’ – by Sonya Driver

 

Have you ever sprayed some perfume on, or sat near someone that is wearing a strong perfume and suddenly you have a headache and feel queasy?

 

If you researched the toxicity in perfume you would flip. The EWG found that most products that contained synthetic fragrances, such as perfumes, lotions, washes etc contain a hormone disruptor chemical called Phthalates. They are linked to many health conditions such as breast and liver cancer, reproductive malformations, diabetes and so much more.

 

Allergy and intolerance rates are rising due to the amount of chemicals we come into contact with daily. It is near impossible to escape them; from the couch to the dishwasher, personal care products, food, water…. So minimising the dangerous invisible toxic chemicals is the only thing we can do. If I’m going to wear perfume, I just dab a tiny bit of pure frankincense on my clothing.
