How to get healthy skin – Skinfood

Skin is the largest organ in our bodies, so large it that adults carry some 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms) and 22 square feet (2 square meters) of it.  In fact National Geographic goes on to say this: Skin acts as a waterproof, insulating shield, guarding the body against extremes of temperature, damaging sunlight, and harmful chemicals. It also exudes antibacterial substances that prevent infection and manufactures vitamin D for converting calcium into healthy bones. Skin additionally is a huge sensor packed with nerves for keeping the brain in touch with the outside world. At the same time, skin allows us free movement, proving itself an amazingly versatile organ.

So what do we do to keep such an important part of our bodies healthy & hydrated?  We feed it of course!  Continue reading “How to get healthy skin – Skinfood”

“My desperately dehydrated skin needed help.  And I wanted something that would give me anti-aging benefits too.  I found and fell in love with your Skinfood Ultra Vital.  It’s such a deliciously delicate yet effective product.  I raved about it so much even my husband uses it now! Thank you!”

Why Should I use a Toner?

 A commonly skipped and misunderstood step in skin care, toner is important to achieving healthy skin. A toner cleans deeper than most cleansers and also helps to clear the pores of impurities left behind by cleansers, make-up and other topical products; things that may have trapped dirt and bacteria on the top layers of your skin.  Toners also help to balance the skin’s natural pH levels and hydrate even the driest skin types. 

Gerda Spillmann has two types of Toners – Tonic sans Alcool and Rosa Alpina.

Tonic sans Alcool is an ALCOHOL FREE Toner.  This is important because Alcohol can over-dry and irritate sensitive skin.  Instead Tonic sans Alcool is formulated with pharmaceutical grade Witch Hazel and Oak Root Extract to deep cleanse your pores and leave only fresh, clean feeling skin.

Rosa Alpina uses a delicate blend of Rose Petal Oil and Coltsfoot Extract.  Rose Petal Oil can protect skin cells from oxidative damage, a natural anti-oxidant .  Coltsfoot Extract is a soothing and healing botanical, which gives essential nutrients to the skin.

Toners can also help to create a striking eyeliner that is still good for sensitive skin.  Dab your thin, eyeliner brush into Tonic sans Alcool and then into your favorite eyeshadow powder.  Holding your eyelid taught, draw a line as close to the lashes as you can.  Allow to set for just a few seconds and then you have a custom eyeliner look that will last all day!
