BEAUTY: Skin Essence Organics

Skincare is something I have developed a passion for over the past 2 years. My grandmother is in her 70’s and doesn’t look a day over 55. Her skin is tight with few wrinkles and perfect pigmentation. It’s my sincere hope that I get her genes. But is youth all about our actual genetic make-up? She spends little time in the sun, always washes her face before bed and in the morning and spends a fair amount of money on lavish skincare cremes and serums. Nonetheless, she is stunning and she is doing something right. The most important thing to keep in mind when shopping around for skincare are the ingredients. Many times products will claim that they are organic but really only have one or two ingredients that are natural. They can be tricky. When I took the time to investigate my cremes and serums, I was shocked to find out that they were full of ingredients I’ve never heard of and more importantly couldn’t pronounce – never a good sign. Your body will soak up to 80% of what is applied topically. This means any product that has dangerous chemicals will quickly make its way to your bloodstream. I’ve recently come across a skincare line that is 100% natural – Skin Essence Organics.

Common ingredients found in skincare products:

Parabens – (methyl, propyl, butyl, ethyl)
Reason– Toxic, Irritates the skin, known to cause skin rashes, dermatitis  and rosacea, Also found in breast tissue of cancer patients.

Aluminum

Reason – Very toxic and has been linked to Alzheimers disease in numerous studies.

Synthetic  Colorants
 -(Labeled D&C or FD&C)
Reason – Often contains aluminum, irritates skin cells and is a suspected  carcinogen.

Petroleum  Derived Ingredients -(Petroleum, Mineral Oil, Vaseline)
Reason – Clogs pores may cause acne or dry skin and often contains  carcinogens.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate & Sodium Laureth Sulfate
Reason – Known to damage the skins outer layer and is a suspected  carcinogen.

Synthetic  Fragrance
Reason – Toxic, highly allergenic, many chemicals used in fragrances are unregulated and unlisted.

Phthalates
Reason – Mimics estrogen in the body; Known to cause  hormonal imbalance in the body and affect reproductive toxins; associated with  birth defects in children and low sperm counts in men.

I’m jumping on the natural skincare train. It’s on folks! I’m starting this change in my beauty routine with Skin Essence Organics. Skin Essence Organics is a truly organic skin care line developed for the body’s largest organ, the skin. They only use the finest ingredients with nature’s extracts, essential oils and minerals. They created the line with leading researchers, a highly  regarded herbalist and holistic esthetician. Over the course of  20 years, they have perfected the line to rejuvenate cells, feed capillaries and nourish the skin.

Fresh Cleanser
This cleanser is full of all kinds of good stuff like Lemongrass Oil, Coconut Oil, Peppermint Oil and Sunflower – to name a few. It felt unbelievably refreshing on my skin. Let’s just say they named the product accordingly. I know I am going to go ga ga over this product just from using it a couple times.

Facial In A Jar
Although I looked like Oscar the Grouch when I first applied the Facial In A Jar, I kept with it and let the process take its effect. My skin instantly tightened. A bit got in my mouth. I expected a disgusting taste but was surprised with a sweet delightful taste – likely the Marshmallow Root… must NOT eat facial product Erin….My  skin felt great after I washed the product off – 10 minutes later. I’m really looking forward to the end result after using for a few weeks!
