Help, I have acne and I'm 35!!

One in five people between the ages of 25 and 40 suffer from adult acne. Here are two facts about adult acne and how to rid your skin of it.

Fact  # 1. Acne usually begins with Blackheads. Red Pimples develop when blackheads become inflammed. Pimples spread rapidly when touched with dirty hands. When the pimple becomes infected it developes a white head or pustule. These can break and in severe cases can cause acne scars.
How to get rid of Blackheads?
Gently exfoliate 2-3 times and week and keep skin clean with 2x daily cleasing.

Fact  # 2 There are several causes of adult acne. These are: Stress, bad cosmetics, hormones and birth control pills. Stress causes your oil glands to overcompensate. Bad cosmetics lead to bacteria overladed skin pores. Hormones cause the sebaceous glands to overact and Birth Control Pills with androgen in them can cause break outs.
To keep acne break outs at bay use:
  1. Aloe Vera Face and Body Wash
  2. Exfoliant
  3. Aloe Vera Pure Organic Face and Body Lotion
  4. Aloe Vera Face and Body Milk
  5. Regular deep cleansing Green Clay Mask

Aluminium Free Crystal Deodorant recommended by Breast Cancer Support Group

Many women have been advised to use crystal deodorants by breast cancer support groups around the country. They were told not to use anti - perspirants and gluggy deodorants because of their suspected link with the disease. “Anti - perspirant, as the name indicates, stops you from perspiring, thereby prohibiting the body from performing its natural function of purging toxins from the armpits.“These toxins do not just magically disappear. Instead, the body deposits them in the lymph nodes below the armpits because it cannot sweat them out.
“Nearly all breast cancer tumours occur in the upper outside quadrant of the breast area. This is precisely where the lymph nodes are located
”Breast cancer sufferer Val Higson of Brisbane said the Royal Brisbane Hospital’s breast cancer support group recommended she use the crystal because it did not contain sticky oils, gels, perfumes or aluminium chlorohydrates. 

Our Organic Aloe Vera Crystal Deodorant is a natural anti bacterial formula to protect you against odour without clogging or coating the pores of your skin. This Organic Aloe Vera Crystal Deodorant is hypo allergenic, non stain, non sting and without Aluminium.
Organic Aloe Vera Crystal Deodorant ensures confidence against odour whilst your skin is soothed, replenished and rehydrated.
Recommended for pregnant women and those with sensitive skin.
The crystal is a blend of mineral salts formed by hot spring waters deep in the earth. Combined with Organic Aloe Vera this deodorant provides essential minerals, vitamins & trace elements to the skin.

Benefits of Aloe Vera in Skin Care

There are over 200 species of Aloe Vera; a member of the lily family. Aloe Barbadensis contains the highest concentration of nutrients of all the species. Aloe Vera Barbadensis is used extensively by naturopaths, doctors & dermatologists, with substantial & encouraging results.

Throughout history, people have relied on Aloe Vera Skin Care to help heal a wide range of human ailments, particularly skin irritations such as drying, flaking, itching, cracking, burns and fungal conditions. Aloe Vera skin care products can be used comfortably by those suffering from dermatitis - eczema, psoriasis, acne or unidentified concerns as well as those who suffer from allergy, hay fever or asthma. Those affected cannot tolerate fragrance, colouring, artificial cream bases or gelling agents in skin care products.

The benefits of Aloe Vera in Skin Care are overwhelming:

Aloe Vera Lotion is a mild anaesthetic, antibacterial & antifungal, containing anti-inflammatory fatty acids. These components have shown to assist in relieve itching, swelling, redness and pain.

Aloe Vera Skin Care Products penetrate rapidly and deeply, infusing dry skin with desperately needed moisture. Aloe Vera skin care is cooling, soothing and moisturising and it stimulates the growth of new skin cells and tissue with natural steroids, enzymes and amino acids. Quality Aloe Vera products have excellent anti-ageing properties.

Organic Aloe Vera skin care encourages water retention in dry skin tissue, rids dead skin cells, and stimulates skin growth, leaving you with a healthy glow! Aloe Vera lotion has penetrating abilities that permit water and other moisturising agents in our Aloe Vera skin care products and Aloe Vera Shampoo to submerge into the skin to replenish fluids.

Aloe Vera Products restore the skin to its natural pH balance and give skin a smoother appearance.

Aloe Vera skin care helps to keep facial pores unclogged and gives skin a healthy glow by speeding up the blood circulation. The amino acids in the plant then help to promote the growth of new cells. Additionally, Aloe Vera skin care furnishes the skin with a protective coating to minimise the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi.

Aloe Vera products natural soothing components ease your skin, whilst it begins work on the damaged areas.

Improve the look, feel and texture of your skin naturally

Why do so many personal care products and cosmetics contain potentially harmful ingredients? The simple answer is: because they are cheap, readily available, and easy to dilute.

Are there non toxic, Natural Skin Care and Personal Care Products out there that deliver results? Yes, loads! There are many great quality organic and natural personal care products, skin care products and cosmetics out there that are hand made with love, but don not trust a label just because it reads 'All Natural', read on... Unfortunately the market is being flooded with companies trying to sell you personal care products that are not at all 'All Natural'.

What can you do to keep your skin healthy without using potentially harmful substances? Eat plenty of fresh, raw food and getting enough omega 3 fats are ways to improve your skin... You are what you eat. Need I mention exercise? Through exercise, your skin detoxifies impurities from your system; known as perspiration... And do not smoke. But beyond that, here is a critically important step to skin care you need to be aware of…Just 5 minutes per day gets you on the road to a younger looking, vibrant face : use natural skin care products and have a daily skin care routine.

Every day of your life, pollution, grime and dust attach to your skin. If you don not take a couple minutes each day to cleanse your face and unclog your pores, your skin may look sluggish instead of its bright and shiny best. Take time to thoroughly cleanse your skin with natural skin care products and you will find your face looking and feeling younger. Please refer to our Natural Skin Care Routine for healthy, glowing skin. If you will be in the sun for extended periods of time, use a natural Zinc Oxide Mineral Sunscreen with safe and effective ingredients

Don’t expect overnight changes when trying to improve the look and texture of your skin. Don’t be discouraged with seeming lack of progress. It may take a week, a month or even two to notice changes and bring your skin back to a natural, healthy balance. Plus, it is quite possible that others will notice your increasingly youthful-looking face before you do!

Check your personal care products for these toxins now!

If your Personal Care Products and cosmetics contain any of the following chemicals, you may like to reconsider whether you want to continue applying these toxins to your skin, hair and body - and to your families.

Believe it or not, the following toxic chemicals are NOT ALL the dangerous chemicals found in your everyday skin care and personal care products.

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate
This harsh detergent and emulsifier, petroleum derived, strips skin and hair of its natural oils, increasing skin permeability and allowing absorption of other toxic chemicals into the dermis and bloodstream. This is a known skin irritant, causing skin rashes. Sodium Lauryl Sulphate can cause eye irritation and conditions like cataracts, blindness, organ damage, damage to your immune system, respiratory damage, headaches and vomiting. SLS is found in nearly anything that lathers, including toothpastes, shampoos, body washes and skin moisturisers.

This highly toxic preservative causes skin rashes and has been linked to cancer, irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, skin irritation, dermatitis, asthma, shortness of breath, nose bleeds, nausea and vomiting, chest pains and dizziness. Formaldehyde is used in nail polish, nail hardeners, mascara, soaps, shampoos, many moisturising creams, bubble bath and deodorants.
These chemicals are derived from Formaldehyde and should also be avoided.
• Imidazolidinyl urea (can cause contact dermatitis)
• Diazolidinyl urea (can cause contact dermatitis)
• 2-bromo-2nitropane-1
• 3-diol
• DMDM hydantoin
• Quaternium 15

Isopropyl alcohol
This anti-foaming agent, petroleum derived, can damage hair and cause skin rashes. Toxic to the liver, kidney, respiratory and gastro-intestinal systems. A teratogenic which has been linked to foetal and birth defects. This dangerous chemical is found in hair dyes, moisturisers, aftershaves, antifreeze, carpet cleaner and the list goes on.

From petroleum or tar, Paraffin is a non-renewable resource that has a negative impact on our environment. Your skin initially feels smoother due to the surface layer
Paraffin forms but your skin can't 'breathe' and is de-hydrated by any petroleum based skin care product. This starts a cycle of continued use to prevent the feeling of dryness, which the product is actually responsible for. Used in wax strips, skin moisturisers, body oils etc.

Petrolatum (Petroleum jelly)
An incredibly cheap mineral oil derivative that will de-hydrate and dry your skin out, strangely enough this is used in skin moisturisers and lip balms specifically targeted at dry skin and lips! Used in products recommended for nappy rash. Talk about self perpetuating products!

Propylene glycol
This humectant is another petrochemical mix that can cause allergic reactions, skin rashes, hives and eczema. Also found in brake fluid and anti-freeze. Please avoid the chemicals below which are very similar.
• PEG (polyethylene glycol) (A by-product of PEG-stearate-20 that was used during WW1 as a toxic gas!)
• PPG (polypropylene glycol)

Methyl, Propyl, Butyl and Ethyl Parabens
A preservative used to extend shelf life, Parabens can cause skin rashes and allergic reactions. These preservatives can interfere with the endocrine system with properties known for oestrogen mimicking. Studies have connected paraben exposure and breast cancer.

A general term referring to as many as 200 synthetic fragrances, none of which are required to be individually labelled. Often petroleum based, fragrances can cause dizziness, skin rashes and pigmentation which is why some people have brown skin marks where they apply perfume. “Fragrance –free” products can contain chemicals to mask unpleasant smells.

DEA (diethanolamine) and MEA (monoethanolamine)
These chemicals are ‘amines’ (ammonia compounds) and can form cancer-causing nitrosamines when in contact with nitrates. Used as emulsifiers and foaming agents,
they cause eye, hair and skin irritation and skin rashes and are toxic if absorbed for a long period of time. DEA is known to cause liver and kidney tumours in mice. DEA is
still used in many products in Australia, despite international warnings. These chemical compounds cause allergic reactions, irritate eyes and dry the hair and skin. Any product with MEA or DEA listed individually or in combination with another ingredient (e.g. cocamide DEA) should certainly be avoided.

A preservative linked to allergic reactions and skin rashes.

Artificial Colours
FDC RED 4, FDC RED 1 or FOOD RED 1, should all be avoided. Banned in food but can still be used in personal care, skin care and cosmetics. Known to cause urinary bladder polyps and deterioration of the adrenal glands.

Coal Tar
(FD & C) and (D & C) colours to be avoided. Derived from petroleum coal tars and linked to asthma, headaches, nausea, fatigue, nervousness and lack of concentration. Coal Tars are confirmed human carcinogens and skin irritants. They are thought to increase risk of tumour growth. Used in anti-dandruff shampoos and for colouring cosmetics.

TEA (Triethanolamine)
Emulsifier, skin irritant and known mutagen, which causes changes in cellular DNA. TEA is also a contact allergen causing eczema and skin rashes. Used in skin care products and to coat non-organically grown fruit and vegetables.

Watch out vegetarians!! Made from boiled sheep organs, this is used in lipsticks, soaps and shaving cream...

Used in toothpaste this industrial waste product can reduce the risk of dental cavities, it has however been linked with cancer, hypothyroidism, osteoporosis, birth defects, increased risk of fractures, dental and skeletal fluorosis and impaired brain function. Used by Hitler in concentration camps to pacify detainees.

Shocking, isn't it?

Are there non toxic Personal Care Products out there that deliver results?

• Yes, loads! There are many great quality organic and natural personal care products out there that are hand made with love, but don't trust a label just because it sais 'All Natural', read on... Unfortunately the market is being flooded with companies trying to sell you products that aren't at all 'All Natural'.
